    I recently purchased a mint ladies president Rolex that is 18kt. gold. The watchband # is 8570/8 and the watch model number is 69178. The watch had one previous owner and was purchased in 1994. Where is the best place to get a few links for the bracelet?

Regarding the President Links

You can get some 18k Links here, I just had to call my local rolex dealer, they are looking for $550 per link now WOWOW. I would be paying about $120 max for a ladies link

What you have is an older model Datejust -- or at least an older model movement. During the 1950s, many Rolex Datejust models had an alternating red/black date wheel. Tudor (Rolex's second brand) also had movements with the same red/black date wheel.
BTW, those watches are becoming more and more collectible. Sounds like you may have a nice classic on your wrist! :-)

I hope this helps!

How to set the time and date to my rolex, and if under number 6 when you remove bracelet i don't have number that means is a fake?


That number does correspond with a genuine Rolex. Stop Ina watch repair store where they actually do the work. I have not seen a knock off with a serial numbers or model number stamped between the case lugs.
Hope this helps.

Rolex is mechanical timing, not really accurate. Phone watch is timed by quartz crystal and may even be corrected by atomic clock on the internet.

How do u set the date on a datejust


on 1570 movements there is no quickset feature therefore you must turn the hour hand 24 hours to change the date but 3035 and other later movements equipped with quickset wheel and if you pull out the winding crown you can change the date.

Can you please tell me how to set my Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust? Day light savings toime ends this evening and the watch needs to be set back 1 hour.


Unscrew the crown and then pull the crown out to the second click and turn. When done push the crown back in and screw the crown back down.

It is very important to screw the crown back down. If this is not done the watch is NOT water resistant.

Hope this helps.

Does anyone have a manual for a datejust rolex


No, there isn;t any downloadable manuals for Rolex watches, but operation of Rolex Datejust is very simple:
1) when you unscrew the crown, it is in winding position,
2) when you pull out the crown to the first click, it is in date setting position,
3) when you pull the crown further out to the second click, it is in time setting position.
To find the daytime or night time on the watch: pull out crown to the second click and advance watch hands forward till you pass the 12 mark on dial. If the date changes as you pass it - it is the night time (midnight). If the date do not change as you pass it - it is the daytime (noon).
After all settings being done, allways screw the crown back down as it protects the watch from water and moisture.
Never use watch in sauna- it's not designed for that.
Do not forget to rate, please.

My date just will not set, it clicks two times but doesn't move


it's time for a overhaul and cleaning...the stem may be worn out. Rolexs need this service about every 10 years.

Rolex oyster perpetual datejust time/date setting instructions


Depending on how old the watch is, It may be quick set or older models are not quick set. In older models you need to unscrew the crown, pull out the crown and rotate the crown to set the time, and in order to set the date rotate the hour hand past 12 twice in order for the date to change. Set the date first and then set the hour and min. For quick set models unscrew the crown and pull it out to the fist click this position you can "quickly" set the date by rotating the crown. Set the date and then pull out the crown to the second position out. Rotate the crown to set the hour and min. Then push the crown back in and screw it down.
