Question about Rolex Day-Date President 118238 Wristwatch
I have one Rolex Datejust (middle-sized, steel, white bezel with roman numerals), and I have a problem. When I unscrew the crown I can set the date in the mid position perfectly, but when I pull out the crown in full to the second position, I'm able to adjust time only counterclockwise. When I'm gonna do it clockwise, it sounds like a friction between pinions, and the hands doesn't advance, or they do it with an uneven and jerky motion.
I have my own working table, with a lot of fine tools from Witschi, Bergeon, etc., and I normally carry all of my watches' support and maintenance, but before dismantling the watch, I prefer to listen to your opinion.
Thanks in advace for your help, and receive my best regards from Madrid, Spain.
My email is firstname.lastname@example.org, and my name is Jesus N. Gomez. I have a Doctorate in Electronic Engineering, and I'm 50 now. If I can be of any help to you, please let me know.
I have the same watch, with the same problem, i called rolex, and they told me that only a few odels of rolex watches do this, you should either take it back to the manufacturer,or take it apart and re fix the adjusting peices that work the hands when you try and turn it clock wise.
