You would have to unscrew the back (needs a special tool) and leave it open to dry..then probably have it cleaned. Only a professional watch mender can do this.
BUT Rolex watches are water resistant. It either isnt as Rolex, or you went too deep

This is a mechanical auto-wind watch. It self winds when worn. But if taken off for a couple of days it will have stopped and won't start running again unless it is wound.

Put it on and wear it for a few minutes. This will wind it enough to start it running again. Then set the time and wear it and you'll be fine.

Hope this helps.

Unscrew the crown,let it pop out by gently turning it towards you , anticlockwise....gently pull the crown out to the first stop and turn the crown......day one way and the date the opposite way. The time is set by pulling the crown out to the next stop.

I bought one while on a buisness trip to China. I like the watch alot but the band was too big. I have a friend who's a jeweler. He fixed the band for free. It does take a special tool (which he had).

This watch is self winding and will stop after 2-3 days if not worn.

To wind it up,shake it from side to side gently for a few minutes (about 100-200 times) and this should wind it up sufficient to make it run for some time.

These watches thrive on being used and if you wish to maintain its operation, wear it at least every other day.

It sounds like your Rolex isnt retaining its power.If worn for 8 hours a Rolex in good condition will hold power for 36 hours.
Rolex watches need regular servicing every 4-5 years so it may be due a service,the mainspring may be broken or the automatic windind may have a fault.

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
