Rolex's are wound by your movement. Try moving your arm back and forth and see if that helps. Also make sure that the crown is screwed in securely. If it's not a watch that you're not going to wear all of the time, you might want to buy a winder. I've bought several off of Ebay for around 30 dollars. They simply display and spin the watch off and on keeping it running. Good luck!!

I have submariner Rolex watch and when I unscrewed the winding stem where I can manually wind it, I started to wind it and all of a sudden it was like something snapped and there was no more tension when I...


These watches are selfwinding so you should not have to use the crown to wind it up. (Although some watches have this as an alternative).

To wind it up shake it gently from side to side for some minutes and it should start.

No tension on the crown wheel is worrying. If you pull it further out and can adjust the time in position 3 (fully out) and the date (half way out), then it may be that no damage has been done. If you cannot adjust the time, then it looks like a trip to the dealer is required for repair.

Good luck!

Rolex President Day-Date Men's Watch


Rolex, at one time, had a quartz (battery operated) watch. It was only manufactured in solid gold and was distinctive in style from other models. It is no longer being made. For all practical purposes, it you see a battery operated Rolex it is not genuine.

No action when I pull the stem out to adjust time


There may be more than one "out" position.

Typically there are three positions 1) home 2) 1st adjusting position, 3) 2nd adjusting position.

If you haven't got the instructions, you can get a download from their web site, (Rolex.com). You go to the bottom of the screen and there is a menu. Select "downloads" and you will see a list of downloads, choose yours.

My Rolex Sub that I have had for 9 years keeps stopping. I have to shake it for it to start again


If you haven't had it attended to since you bought it, then I suggest that it might need a clean.

Rolex will advise you if there is any other attention needed.

My rolex submariner keeps having the wrong date on it. when it turns midnight it stays on the old date and i switch it to the correct one. but when noon rolls around it switches to the day ahead and i once...


There isn;t any downloadable manuals for Rolex watches, but operation of Rolex 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 day and date setting position (depending wich way you turn the crown).
NOTE: to adjust the day or date, previously you have to advance hands forward, passing 12 o'clock (midnight) mark and stop advancing at 4.00 a.m. using the crown in position as described in chapter 3. When done - push the crown fully in, then pull out to the first click and only then adjust the day or date.
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.
