A Rolex watch is automatic.It needs to be worn 8 hours per day to store enough power to run 36 hours off the wrist.Assuming that you are wearing the watch daily if it still stops there is a problem with the auto winding or mainspring.As a new watch it will be under the Rolex guarantee so return it to the place of purchase.If you dont have a guarantee contact www.rolexrepairs.co.uk for advice or a free estimate.

We are trying to figure out if this rolex we bought was an orginal, its an ad daytona 1992


There are a few things to check..

Most reproductions/fake Daytonas have a second hand that moves.. if your second/sweep hand is moving like a standard second hand.. you have a fake.

The real Daytona's second hand remains at the 12 position as it is part of the stopwatch function and only moves when activated.

A few other things you can check.. if the three mini dials refer to months or days it's a fake.

If anything is engraved on the back of this watch.. it's a fake

Rolex engraves a serial number between the lugs.. some fakes duplicate this..but generally not very well.

Lastly if you have none of these issues.. the final way to be sure is to have the back removed and have the movement verified.

Best of luck

I have just bought a Enfield Bakelite Mantle clock. Exceelnt timekeeper however after abot 22 hours it stopped. Again today after about 8 hours. Is there another problem apart from needing wound up? I...


How old is your clock?

If it is fairly old then it could just need a clean (by a professional!).

Over winding is a strange term which I have never quite understood in all my career as an engineer. I have known a brand new watch to fail when bought fully wound and I think that it may have been wound too hard and the mechanism jammed. I don't think that this is the problem in your case.

Juts got the watch, wound it, worked then stoped, wound dead


These watches are self winding (mechanical spring), so need to be worn (or gently oscillated) to wind them up.

The catalogue for this watch says it should run for 72 hours when fully wound.

Depending on when the watch was made, it could be that it needs a clean.

Try wearing it for a few days to see if it keeps going.

My daytona#24 is showing the wrong time,and the top crown is it supposed to be down tight because it's not.


Just put a little machine oil,and try to turn the crown and pushing so it lose the tightening,if showing a wrong time reset it,or replaced it with new battery so it works better again.

Hope it may helps you;

Rolex daytona


Rolex does not engrave the case back. If it says 24 hours at Daytona, or wording like that, the watch is not real... It's a fake, or as we say more kindly.. It's a replica, and can be bought on any replica watch web site for $30 to $80, for an automatic mov't.,  21J, made in China.
Also, the sub-dials will not function on this watch. A Daytona needs the proper movement to operate the chronograph as it was intended..... To act as a stopwatch.. and measure time... seconds, minutes and hours. This is done by activating pushers at 2 and 4 positions, and the pushers on 21J replicas just don't operate a chron. for the purpose of measuring time. They may move and measure something else, like military time, or the date, but definitely not record seconds, minutes or hours. There are also no manuals on how to operate the Daytona that comes with these replica watches. You should know how this watch functions and how to operate the pushers, and what they do before you should buy and enjoy this type of chronograph watch. It's simple, just take the time to ask people in the know... how the daytona works, what the sub-dials measure and how to use them, etc. In no time you'll understand the operation of this beautifully made watch. Unfortunately, a daytona is out of reach for most of us... That's why seeking out a quality rolex replica for much less money is the way to go if you love this watch... A quality one can look, feel, and function just as good as the authentic Daytona, and you won't have to out out over $10K to get one.

Rolex Daytona Chromograph


ok. bear with me. lol. on most watches without a chronograph. the second is the largest hand on the watch and naturally that's what most people refer to as the second hand. On a chronograph the "true" second hand is the little middle dial. It should always be constantly moving and the large hand should only move when the stop watch funtion is in play. The way to employ the stopwatch funtion is by unscrewing both buttons. The top button starts the action. Once pressed then large hand will begin. The little dial on you left will keep up with each minute that passes. To stop the function, press the top button again. To reset the stop watch, press the bottom button. The little dial on your right is simply military time. Hope that helps. Good luck!!

Rolex Daytona Replica


this may help. unscrew both buttons. push in top button to start.again to stop.bottom is to reset. coincidently large sweep second hand is used for chrono and not the smaller register. the other registers are 24 hr military time and chrono minutes.

The advice given here is accurate to a degree. When wound, a rolex daytona IS running. However, it is the running seconds hand in the small sub-dial that is actually running. In the earlier Daytonas, this sub-dial was at the 9 o'clock position on the dial, (pre-2001 series daytonas). The later daytonas, from 2001 on, use the seconds at 6 position for counting seconds. The main sweeping second hand on the watch dial will NOT start until activated by the pusher at the 2 position. That pusher needs to be unscrewed and then pushed to start the large sweeping second hand. This action, in turn, starts the remaining 2 sub-dials in motion, counting minutes and hours. To stop the chronograph function, you push the pusher @ the 2 position again, to stop the sub-dial hands from counting, and then push the pusher @ the 4 position to re-set the dials to their "straight up position". This stops the chrono's function, until it is needed again, BUT the main running seconds, (at either the 9 or 6 sub-dial position, depending on the year series of the daytona) will continue to run, thus keeping accurate time.  Hope this gives you a better idea of how the timekeeping of the chronograph function on a Daytona works. So, to start your seconds running you need to start the chrono function by pressing the pusher at the 2 position. That will allow you to see the large sweeping second hand I think you're referring to here. Hope this has helped.
