Question about Rolex Daytona 116520 Wrist Watch

1 Answer

Dear Sirs, I have a Rolex Daytona watch new and I have a problem. The hour is delayed too and can not operate for more than a couple of hours. This watch is a gift from a family and can not find the owner's manual. Do not know how to wind it initially and then works regularly with only hand motion. Could you help me? Thank you very much Antonio

This is a self winding watch and should run for 2-3 days when fully wound.

To wind it, wave it gently from side to side for about 200 times.

If you still have problems, speak to Rolex, they should be able to sort out your problem. (see rolex.com).

Want to know if my rolex is fake it states winner rolex addaytona 1992 24 on the back and rolex oyster perpetual superlative chronometer officially certified cosmograph on the front has three dials stating...


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 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.

If it is not a feature built in to the watch to save power when it needs winding, I would say it has a bad gear wheel inside.
I would go here, join, and ask in the Rolex Forum,

These guys are really knowledgeable.

Setting/operating Rolex Daytona


If you bought it at a market it is a fake watch, made in Far East country.
People who can afford to buy Rolex watch will NEVER sell it at a market.
All you can do is to find your nearest watch repair shop and ask at least to restart it. Do not expect even average timekeeping. The function buttons probably will not work as well.
Sell it, if you can and never buy watch at a market again.

Like to know more about my rolex daytona?


The daytona you describe that has 24 hours at Daytona on the back is a relatively cheap replica daytona. It probably has a 21J japanese or chinese movement, and will probably not last very long under normal wear. The better ones out there are about $100, but you can get them for much less. The chronos do not function as the genuine daytona. The move and measure something, but who knows what. So, this is a cheap imitation of the rolex daytona, and by no means is the best replica out there. There are better ones available with asian copies of the valjoux 7750 movement. These movements also vary in quality from the cheaper ones that run at 21,600bph, or the more upgraded mov'ts @28800bph. These have the running seconds at 6 position and hours at the 9 position. You can search the web for a dealer that sells these better daytonas. Prices van start at around $190.00 and run up to more than $650.00 for the same watch and mov't. Depends on the dealer.. So, shop with knowledge and ask many questions before you ever purchase. You can get a reliable replica with automatic movement, depending on what model you're looking for... for less than $300. The SS series 116520 you can get a genuine looking replica for $140 to $223. E-mail me personally and I'll tell you how to get information on ordering this Daytona replica.

Rolex does not engrave the case back. If it says 24 hours at Daytona, or wording like that, the watch is not real... It's a fake, or as we say more kindly.. It's a replica, and can be bought on any replica watch web site for $30 to $80, for an automatic mov't.,  21J, made in China.
Also, the sub-dials will not function on this watch. A Daytona needs the proper movement to operate the chronograph as it was intended..... To act as a stopwatch.. and measure time... seconds, minutes and hours. This is done by activating pushers at 2 and 4 positions, and the pushers on 21J replicas just don't operate a chron. for the purpose of measuring time. They may move and measure something else, like military time, or the date, but definitely not record seconds, minutes or hours. There are also no manuals on how to operate the Daytona that comes with these replica watches. You should know how this watch functions and how to operate the pushers, and what they do before you should buy and enjoy this type of chronograph watch. It's simple, just take the time to ask people in the know... how the daytona works, what the sub-dials measure and how to use them, etc. In no time you'll understand the operation of this beautifully made watch. Unfortunately, a daytona is out of reach for most of us... That's why seeking out a quality rolex replica for much less money is the way to go if you love this watch... A quality one can look, feel, and function just as good as the authentic Daytona, and you won't have to out out over $10K to get one.

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!!
