SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Rolex oyster perpetual datejust time/date setting instructions

unscrew the winding pin until it opens to the first position. (this position is for self winding. approx 30 turns clockwise will fully wind the watch)pull pin to the next position. this sets the date if it is a quickset. 1985 to present. again turn clockwise to the desired date is present. pull the pin to the final position and this will set the time turning clockwise as well. hope this helps.

SOURCE: self winding feature does not work

There is nothing you can do yourself. Simply return your watch to EMW and demand to sort the winding problem once and for all.
It may take some time, but better to be patient as quick watch repairs usually are very short living.
By the way: I'd ask for detailed receipt what for $1800 was spent. This amount of money can be charged only in case if there were brand new Rolex replacement parts necessary. For just refurbishing the watch it is way too much.

Do not forget to rent, please.

SOURCE: how to change bezel on Rolex Datejust

The bezel is secured by a Teflon gasket. To remove the bezel I would use a watch knife and gently press it in between the bezel and the case. Make sure you go straight in and it might not be a bad idea to use a layer of plastic around the knife so it doesn't leave marks. Also, do not use a widling motion. GO STRAIGHT IN. This will also prevent damage to the case and bezel. Repeat this several times working your way around the bezel. Be sure you don't continue to apply pressure with the knife once the bezel begins to come up as you don't want to damage the Teflon seal. Once you have the bezel out you will need to replace the Teflon seal the exact same way it came off on your replacement bezel and press back into place.

SOURCE: How do you open the latch on a Rolex datejust

If I understand right, by the latch you mean bracelet clasp. You just pull it by the crown. Clasps on ROLEX watches can be very tight, so, have to pull it with appropriate force. Rate me, plz.

I usually shake my Rolex (Datejust Oyster Perpetual) because it slides to one side, but when I shake it, the second hand sometimes stops. Once I shake it again, it begins to tick again. I have tried...


What's the question? From you description of the troubles you are having I suspect that your watch may on the outside look like a Rolex, but it certainly does not behave like one. I have never had such erratic behavior even with my much cheaper, but authentic Casios.

My Datejust has stopped. The second hand cannot be started even after having wound it 40 times it will not start up.


When the train wheels that absorb force from the mainspring don't move it means that there is a debris among them and it needs complete service .

If the watch is not worn for a day, is it normal for it to stop or slow down? Vintage SS mens datejust, oyster perpetual.


mcdevito75 here, Yes it is normal, especially if your Rolex is an automatic watch. The motion of your Wrist / Hand keeps your watch wound thru the Counter balance on the movement, as the counter balance turns it winds the mainspring little by little, thus keeping your watch wound. Once you take off your watch, if long enough the mainspring simply un-winds and slows and will eventually stop your watch completely. You can keep your Rolex wound even when you take it off by means of a watch winder, a small machine that will keep your watch in motion, or by hand, by rocking the watch back and firth in your hand for about 30 seconds, say before you gpo to bed at night, this way there is always some wind to your watch.

My rolex datejust watch has stopped working...rolex watches don't operate on batteries right? Why has it stopped ticking?


mcdevito75 here, The answer is no, Rolex watches do not operate with a battery. Most Rolex watches are Automatic winding with the motion of your wrist / arm. Of course if you leave your Rolex on the dresser for say 30 hours, it will run down, simply hold the watch in your hand and with a gentle rocking motion say from 6--to 12 O'Clock for about 30 seconds, this will give your automatic Rolex an initial wind up, from there you just wear the watch and it will continealy wind itself. You may also have the non automatic Rolex in which case you would have to wind it dailey. If your Rolex will not run at all no matter what you try, Check out the repair service directory here at fixya, bottom of the page click on repair service directory then watches.

I have rolex datejust that looses time, i do not wear it to bed.


Hi Sggann. You shouldn't need to wear a Rolex automatic watch all the time for it to be kept wound, and you can in any event manually wind it 30 times to top-up the mainspring. You don't say how long you've had the watch, or when or if you've serviced it, but it sounds like it might need a clean and service; this replaces the oils which can thin out over time and effect the timekeeping of the watch, and the watch will be tested to ensure it runs well. Get Rolex to do it, unless you know a capable and accredited watchmaker - it's not cheap (around £250), but then again the watches cost a lot! All the best; Eagle58

Rolex watch stops only when I wear it


Kristy,
Stress won't affect your watch's timekeeping ability, but position will. When you lay the watch down at night, in which position is it? Also, during the day, is your arm in a static position for long periods of time? A Rolex chronometer (like the Datejust) should run approx. 36 hours after being fully wound -- without any movement. If the watch stops dead, then there is a problem with the movement and/or rotor. If it losses time, I'd bet on a static position problem. Let me know the answers to those questions and I'll try to help you get to the bottom of the problem.

How do I adjust my time


hi friend,
i think your rolex watch must be a automatic one. this kind of watch, you don't need to put battery, after in full power, i can last 24-48 hours. if you wear it, it will not stop, but if you don't wear it for long time, it will stop automatic. to adjust the time, you just need to wind the crown counterclockwise, and then pull out the crown, and then you will hear the sound of "click" and then find the right position, and then wind the crown to change the date. please note that the date have to change from small number to big number. after adjust it, you have to screw down the crown to a good water proof capability.
