SOURCE: I just purchased my son a Seiko Divers Automatic

Hi mtrahan99. My advice is to take it back and get it replaced, particularly if you have only had it a few days. If they won't exchange it or refund you, get a repair under the guarantee. Automatic watches (and Seiko actually make some very good ones) don't need to be worn all the time to wind them, and the fact that it ran so fast and has now stopped would indicate something major like problems with the mainspring. Return it! Hope this helps; Eagle58

SOURCE: Omega Seamaster gaining about 10 minutes per hour

Hi, If under warrantee certainly return it for service. I can categorically tell you it's not a broken mainspring. If it were it would not run period. It's probably not rated correctly however if purchased new this is not likely. If you have had similar problems with other mechanical watches you may be better off with a quartz watch. Problem may have occurred if the watch has been subjected to a strong magnetic field.

SOURCE: Watch has been running fine, now running fast.

HI there,

If you have an Automatic Wrist watch. Some adjustment has to do inside the watch. You better bring the unit to any local watch repair shop to adjust or correct the polarity of the energizer.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: my watch runs too fast: adds appr. 1 minute every

That is way too fast for a Seiko Kinetic. There is no adjustment to slow it down. With time of course it might run slower as the gears get dirty. Maybe Seiko will replace the movement, worth asking

Ive wound watch about 40 times it runs for about 3 minutes then stops again


I have the same watch 20 years old. I cannot wind this watch.
it is self winding , which is generated by arm or wrist movement.
i purchased a box for times I won't be wearing. Will rotate watch 5 minutes every hour ( belt driven- only use that other winders say gear my experience is belt drive more reliable)
if you have to wind this watch I would question if it is real Rolex.

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.

Fast running how to adjust to normal movement


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.

Time so fast


If we are talking about 30/60sec per day then a regulation can be done.If you are talking of 30 mins per day there is a problem.Either way you need a Rolex watchmaker,if the watch is 4/5 years old then it may be time to service the watch.

I have bought a new daytona but after every few hours it just stops anf i have to reset it again.its quite frustrating


A Rolex watch is automatic.It needs to be worn 8 hours per day to store enough power to run 36 hours off the wrist.Assuming that you are wearing the watch daily if it still stops there is a problem with the auto winding or mainspring.As a new watch it will be under the Rolex guarantee so return it to the place of purchase.If you dont have a guarantee contact www.rolexrepairs.co.uk for advice or a free estimate.

Submariner 16610 M Model has 40 seconds faster


I don't know if I can help you out, but I can tell you that even a low quality Daytona, or Submariner copy can be adjusted. My 1992 Daytona copy is at about 10 sec a month fast. I read a **** load about the movement, and did the adjustment myself. Any watch shop that tunes watches can do it.

I don't know what year your Submariner is, but today Rolex is using a new main spring (it is now blue). I would think a replacement spring would be the most you might need, but a good tune-up should do the trick. If it is real, I would think about sending it to Rolex for cleaning and a tune-up ($$$).

Watch gains time (at least 5 minutes per day); also Chronometer registers don't work


Nice watch!

Really worth it to bring it in to GOOD watch tech center (or mail it to Rolex in NYC) - expect to spend 'bout $200 for a cleaning and adjustment. This needs to be done every 5 years or so - the price of owning a fine mechanical watch.

Drop into any Rolex retailer for help with using the buttons.....

Good luck!
