Its time for a service.
Take it to any Rolex re-seller that offers repair or to any good timepiece service center. If its a vintage piece i would recommend sending it to Rolex, paying the extra cost to receive the watch with full Rolex repair documents and service history. The Rolex web site has information on this. Also this company does a fine job on Rolex repair. https://www.bobswatches.com/rolex-repair-service

Is it an automatic self wind or wind up? An automatic watch has a weight that winds the main spring and if you wind it by the crown it will not stop. If its one that you wind by hand then the watch should be wound daily at the same time...like right before bed or when she wakes up. Wind gently until it stops. That costly repair should come with a warranty so if she consistently winds daily and still loses time you need to send it back!

If the watch is an automatic then she can gently hold the watch in her hand and rock it back and forth a good 20 times or so and that will give it a good winding! This is a common issue we see at our watch repair business. Some people do not move enough during the day to keep an automatic movement wound. If thats the case then there is nothing ong with the repair, just make sure it gets a good daily wind! :-)

If the problem started immediately after you dropped it, then the impact is likely to have damaged it and a trip top the dealer is unavoidable.

Whatever the cause of your problem it is best left to watch repairer to sort it out.

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.

Watch stops after wearing for a few hours


Self winding watches need motion ( wrist twist) without they can stop. Sometimes just shake your wrist for a few seconds. I purchased a winder box for times I don't wear. ( Amazon)!
it is belt driven winder, rotates watch 5 minutes every hour.

Please stop telling people Rolex watches don't tick.


Yes, absolutely correct , all automatic watches tick and the fake Rolexes just tick a bit slower so it is more visible.

I have a rolex that has daytona in red on the face winner and rolex 24 on the back, real or not.


Thank you for contacting FixYa.

1. Rolex watches don't tick! An immediate way to tell if a Rolex is authentic is to listen to it. If it's ticking, it's definitely a fake!

2. Genuine Rolexes are made from very sturdy materials. For this reason, they are going to feel heavy in your hand. Your fakes are constructed from cheap, less-durable materials, and because of this, are usually very light. A real Rolex will have bands that are full and solid. Knock-offs will usually have links that are hollow, which is why they weigh so very little.

3. Rolexes have a smooth and continuous second hand movement. Another way to tell if a Rolex is authentic is if the second hand jerks as it travels around the face. If it does, it's a textbook fake.

4. Rolexes have a crystal bubble called a "Cyclops Magnification Bubble." This crystal bubble magnifies the date 2.5 times. Your fakes will usually be off-center and made of glass, and only offer 1.5 times the magnification.

5. Another sure way to tell is to look at the lettering and numbers. If you look at these with a jeweler's loupe, every line and edge will be perfect and precise. On a fake, the lettering edges will not be clean. Serial numbers and case numbers will often look as though they were sand-blasted, or will not be etched cleanly into the surface. Any imperfection will tell you right away if the Rolex is authentic.

6. All Rolexes feature a hologram sticker on the back. This sticker features the Rolex Crown and case reference number. Counterfeits will have the sticker, but it will not be holographic.

7. Certain models of Rolexes have an extra seal called a "Triplock Crown Seal." This feature is common to your Daytona and Submariner models and is found between the winding tube's threads. It will be missing on all of your replicas.

8. Rolexes have a micro-etched crown. Etched into the crystal just below the 6 o'clock position is a tiny crown. The mark is so small that it can only be seen under magnification. The detail on this micro-etching is perfect, making it impossible for the imitations to duplicate.

9. Knock-offs will usually have a glass, or "skeleton" case back. Genuine Rolexes will never have a clear or see-through case back. This should be a dead giveaway and will immediately tell you if the Rolex is authentic.

10. Rolexes have a face that is composed of sapphire crystal. Faux watches will usually use regular glass instead. Because of the extremely smooth surface, water dropped onto the sapphire crystal face of a true Rolex will always bead up. On a fake, the water will simply spread across the face and will not bead up.

Best regards. Jewel

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.
