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! :-)

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.

Rolex Yatchmaster 2 second hand is not moving. Please help


Hi John,

Your Yachtmaster likely has one of three problems:

1) the hand loose on the pinion, or
2) the movement needs to be serviced
3) there is an issue with the button/gear for that function within the movement.

Automatic watches must be serviced every 3-5 years as the oils dry out and dust and debris in combination with the dried oils create excessive wear on the parts within the movement. As one must change oil in a fine automobile, it is the same with a Rolex.

We use the same processes as Rolex and are able to attain discontinued parts Rolex no longer supplies.

My suggestion is to use a Certified Master Horologist for your repair. We can certainly assist you with your repair at a much better price than Rolex. Thanks for the rating!

Second hand goes backwards


I would recommend servicing your timepiece. Analyzing the movement with a timing machine or a physical examination of the movement is the only way to repair this issue. You may find a local Certified Master Horologist, or feel free to send it to our service center, we would be happy to help you!

I dropped my rolex


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

My rolex watch stops while i am sleeping


Your Rolex is automatic?
This means it "recharges" while moving it. If you remove from your arm before going to sleep, then it does not "recharge".
But this is something your Rolex should not do it can by default hold the charge for more than one night.
A good watch repair service can handle this issue.

Unfortunately, for authentic Rolex watches you usually have to get the repairs done by an authorized Rolex dealer. Call your locally-owned high-end jeweler or go online (Google: Rolex Repair) to find an online repair resource. Sorry I couldn't help you!

Sorry to say it's a reproduciton..and not a very accurate one..

The three front dials should not reference any days hour dates etc..

There should be nothing engraved on the back

The "second hand" is a sweep timer hand on the original.. it should be stationary at the noon position unless activated.

Probably a good looking watch.. but it's not a Rolex.

Best of luck

I have a presidental perpetual that quits during the night. when I put in on in the morning it works fine. How long should it run when dormant


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.
You need an expert Rolex watchmaker to advise you try www.rolexrepairs.co.uk they offer a free estimate and repairs are returned in 2-3 weeks depending on the work.

I can not open the back cover of my Rolex Submariner, I hear something rattling inside.


If the watch is working okay, and it is a self-winding model (i.e. it doesnt not have a battery which relatively few Rolexs do) then the noise you probably can hear is the self-winding mechanism.
Rolex backs are very, very difficult to remove and watch repairers have special tools to do so. As a Rolex is an offically certified chronometer, and therefore has an incrediby accurate and complex mechanism, the backs are deliberatly designed to be difficult to remove by just anybody.
