Either the stem or latch needs to be replaced. It's a common problem for ALL manual wind watches.

How to center rolex datona wach face


You can do a search on watch repair and learn how to do this yourself and buy the proper tools - however, taking the Rolex to a good watch repair service center or timepiece seller is the better bet. There are alignment indents on the movement and the watch face that can become misaligned. Maybe have the watched fully serviced, it will come back ready for another 10 years of life. For Rolex - f not sending it back to Rolex try this company - very good service. https://www.bobswatches.com/rolex-repair-service

When I pull the crown out to set the time on my Rolex Air King watch...once it is fully pulled out to the correct position when turning the crown, it is very tight or or difficult to turn the crown to


If the watch is more then a few years on it just needs a cleaning. Any good watchmaker can do that, no need to send it to Rolex. If the watch is new, bring it back to the seller with your warranty card. They should be able to address the problem. .

My wife's Rolex Oyster Perpetual watch is running very slow. It was cleaned approx 7 years ago and seemed to run properly. I phoned the NY service center which quoted a $600 basic cleaning fee which seems...


Hi , I am sorry to say that a rolex requires servicing on a regular basis . Every 3 - 5 years would be advised . If you consider that your watch is a delicate machine that may be working 24 hours a day for years then its not unreasonable that it needs servicing. Over time the fine oils dry and degrade , they need replacing , and parts can become damaged .
As to cost , this is a skilled job . To service a rolex in the correct way requires not only skill ,but the correct tooling and equipment . Also the materials used must be genuine rolex , this is costly . Your accredited service centre will then provide a 2 year guarantee .
All in all the price of $600.00 reflects the labour of a skilled man and his investment in gaining rolex status .
There will be cheaper alternatives but beware as they will probably not be rolex trained and wont be using original materials .

Need manual for rolex daytona men's watch


Hello
These are the things you might need about the watch.

1. Turn the crown clockwise while it is in position 2 to manually wind the watch.It will stop if it has not been worn out or put in a watch winder for roughly two days.

2. Pull the crown out one notch to position 3 to change the time.Turn the crown clockwise to move the minute hand.

3. Push the crown back into the watch while turning it clockwise to return the crown to position 1.The crown should be tight to ensure the watch case is waterproof.

4. Operate the stopwatch and chronograph function by pressing the button located above the crown on the 3 o clock side of the watch.Stop the stopwatch by pressing the button again,Reset the stopwatch by pressing the button below the crown.
BEST OF LUCK

My men's presidential date just is very difficult to wind. I try to wear it often, but it quits. The winding mechanism is so stiff that I can only partially wind it. It does move easily in the oposite...


If it has only recently gone stiff then it sound like a trip to the dealer for repair.

It may sound daft but all the Rolex I have examined are self winders. Is yours? (you can often hear the self winding mechanism by placing the watch close to your ear and rocking it gently).

Could it be that you need to pull out the crown to wind it?

My rolex jz stopped moving.


AS I'm sure you know, when changing the time (presumably by pulling out the winder), the watch stops.

Normally the watch re-starts when the winder is returned to the "in" position.

Check that the winder is fully home.

If it doesn't start, pull the winder out and in again. If necessary try this several times.

If this does not solve the problem, then a visit to Rolex may be necessary!

Cannot open clasp prestige replica rolex


1)Unscrew the crown until it pops out, the same way you would unscrew the crown to change the time on the watch.
2)Place the watch case opener in the notches around the outside of the back of the watch case. You have to use a watch case opener made for Rolex watches to open the watch. Once the case opener is in place, twist it and the back will pop open.
3)Use a mini screwdriver to loosen a tiny screw on the inside of the watch located near the stem. You do not need to unscrew fully--only loosen it.
4)Pull the crown straight out. The crown and stem should come out easily.
To open the back of the watch
1)Purchase a Rolex watch back opener set, if you do not already have one. This set is able to open and close any size of Rolex case.
2)Match the size of your Rolex case with the same size of grooved metal die from the tool set.
3)Put the metal die on the grooves on the back of the watch case.
4)Turn the die to remove the case.
5)Remove the rubber gasket.
This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

Can you please tell me how to set my Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust? Day light savings toime ends this evening and the watch needs to be set back 1 hour.


Unscrew the crown and then pull the crown out to the second click and turn. When done push the crown back in and screw the crown back down.

It is very important to screw the crown back down. If this is not done the watch is NOT water resistant.

Hope this helps.

Rolex's are wound by your movement. Try moving your arm back and forth and see if that helps. Also make sure that the crown is screwed in securely. If it's not a watch that you're not going to wear all of the time, you might want to buy a winder. I've bought several off of Ebay for around 30 dollars. They simply display and spin the watch off and on keeping it running. Good luck!!
