SOURCE: I have submariner Rolex watch and when I unscrewed

These watches are selfwinding so you should not have to use the crown to wind it up. (Although some watches have this as an alternative).

To wind it up shake it gently from side to side for some minutes and it should start.

No tension on the crown wheel is worrying. If you pull it further out and can adjust the time in position 3 (fully out) and the date (half way out), then it may be that no damage has been done. If you cannot adjust the time, then it looks like a trip to the dealer is required for repair.

Good luck!

How do you know how much to wind the watch


Your watch needs a service. Options are to send it to Rolex or to bring it in to a Rolex re-seller that offers watch repair. You do not have to send it to Rolex. Expect to pay between $200-$500 depending on what may need to be replaced.

Keeps stopping even when i am wearing it on my wrist.


Your Rolex sounds like it has a problem with the automatic winding gear train.A Rolex needs regular servicing when parts can be inspected and replaced.Servicing is about 3-5 year intervals.
You need a specialist Rolex watchmaker as only they can obtain Rolex parts.Try www.rolexrepairs.co.uk a full service will take 2-3 weeks.

THE MARKERS AND POINTERS OF MY ROLEX SUBMARINER ARE NO LONGER LUMINOUS IN THE DARK. CAN THEY BE RE-COATED? ANY IDEA OF COSTS INVOLVED


They can be re coated or replaced.The watch will need to be re sealed after so now may be a good time to service the watch as this is advised every 4/5 years.
A service will cost £275.00/£325.00 and takes 2/3 weeks at www.rolexrepairs.co.uk

No action when I pull the stem out to adjust time


There may be more than one "out" position.

Typically there are three positions 1) home 2) 1st adjusting position, 3) 2nd adjusting position.

If you haven't got the instructions, you can get a download from their web site, (Rolex.com). You go to the bottom of the screen and there is a menu. Select "downloads" and you will see a list of downloads, choose yours.

How can I change the time and date on my wife's Rolex? The stem will pop out but nothing happens when I turn it either way. No change of date or time.


RECOMENDATION:

Contact a local official Rolex dealer to address the problem.

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.

Noisey Explorer 2,


The noise and the vibration is coming from the winding rotor loose axle. There can be two causes for it:
1) the rotor axle, bridge and setting (fixing) spring is getting loose. This will be quite easy repair as all it takes is to tighten all screws and replace or tighten setting spring.
2) rotor axle is worn, so, consequently the bridge and the setting spring as well. In this case the rotor axle must be replaced by the new one and re-bushed into the bridge and the new setting spring must be fitted. This takes quite a lot of work and new parts as well.
Can not tell you about the costs, but Rolex repairs has never been cheap. In the U.K.about a year ago I did the repairs as described in chapter 2 and customer was charged £195.00, parts inclusive, and it was cheap by the Rolex standards.
Do not forget to rate, please.

Submariner Winding Slips


crowbar040, you may have a problem with your mainspring click, which is supposed to keep the spring coiled as it winds. What might be happening is it is sticking and coming undone instead of winding. Or you could have a bad gear in your automatic.
