SOURCE: clasp on rolex president comes unlatched.

there is a little flange on the clasp that can be bent to make it snap tightly.  Most jewelers will do this service for free while you wait.

This is one sign it maybe real. Everything from the solid headpieces, double steel pins, crew together band, gas relief valve, etc. can be signs that this is a real Rolex. Your best bet is always to go to a Rolex dealer or qualified watch maker/technician for an inspection. Good luck!

The quickest way to spot a fake Rolex is by the second hand. Is the second hand ticking or sweeping. If it's ticking it's fake. A real Rolex's second hand moves around the dial in one continuous movement.

Check for a small engraved crown on the crystal at 6 o'clock. Most fakes will have something similar. The difference is that the crown on a real one is almost impossible to see by just your eye.

Look for the word "Rolex" and the watch's serial number engraved at 6 o'clock under the crystal on the area between the crystal and the dial. While many fake Rolex watches post-2005 have this feature, they're usually printed, not engraved.

Most other ways relate to newer Rolex watches.
Hope this helps and hope it's the real deal.

What is it the value (never been worn)


Bulovas are not high end luxury watches nowadays (they actually were, up to the mid-twentieth century). A modern quartz Bulova is just another mid to upper-mid level quartz wristwatch. Unless you know someone willing to spend some bucks just to have a gold and diamond watch, the value, especially with the price of gold now, may be in the metal, especially since it's 18K; the majority of gold watches are 10K or 14K. The diamonds are likely not very high quality, although they will be real. You should have a jeweler look at it. He will be able to give you an idea what the gold and the stones are worth. Unfortunately, as a watch, Bulovas just don't have much intrinsic resale value nowadays, not like a Rolex, Tag Heuer, Breitling, etc. would have.

It seems to me that the company servicing your timepiece (Rolex or otherwise) must have missed something or did not properly service your timepiece.

You are correct that your watch should not require service every ten months. After servicing, your Rolex, like most all automatics, should run properly for 3-5 years depending on environmental conditions. Our Rolex service offers a one year warranty, and if any issues present within that time, the service is free.

I would recommend using a company that has a full time Certified Master Horologist on staff to service your timepiece that offers a warranty on their work. Thanks for the rating, and we are happy to help you and service your Rolex.

I looked at a daytona two-tone the other day. The edges of the gold parts of the band had turned like a black color. Is this normal?


Most likely a fake watch. Rolex makes white gold, yellow gold, platinum and stainless steel watches. Almost always solid metal parts and not plated. It sounds as the plating on your watch is worn through and the underlying metal is oxidizing.

I got a president day date rolex, sometime the date jump twice in 1 day


Reset the time, day and date manually from scratch. Check for another 24 hours. If the problem persists that means there is interference between day and date wheels and in this case you will need watchmakers help, as to correct such a fault the watch needs to be disassembled almost completely.

If you don't have this ORIGINAL VALID STAMPED INTERNATIONAL ROLEX WARRANTY then your watch does not have any warranty. Just approach the dealer and ask him for ORIGINAL VALID STAMPED INTERNATIONAL ROLEX WARRANTY otherwise your watch does not have any warranty

How do yo know if a rolex is a fake


Tough question as the counterfeiters are getting better and better. First check the case and band. Rolex used stainless steel , gold or platinum. Many fakes are plated, base metal which doesn't look the same as the real thing. If the seconds hand hesitates at each tick, it is 99.9% sure to be fake. Check between the watchband lugs on the watch. The serial number will be between the 6:00 lugs and the case (model) number will be between the 12:00 lugs. The only sure way is to take the back off and look at the movement. Best left to the professionals

How do i open my rolex watch band


Do it hard way, as Rolex watch bracelets are very hard to open. Just use a bit of strength.
