About Rolex

Rolex is popular with successful people for its dignified, practical, and unobtrusive style, its watches are highly accurate and highly durable. The watches are highly valued for their robust, functional, and understated design and their precision and durability make them worth their weight in gold.

All modern Rolex watches can be manually wound, and winding your Rolex is important in order to preserve your watch and keep its movement in good standing.modern Rolex watches use self-winding movements. Rolex calls this ”Oyster perpetual”, as in theory, it means that the watch can continue ticking in perpetuity as long as it is on the wrist.

Why you should manually wind your Rolex watch?

The most important time to manually wind a Rolex watch is when it has stopped. Different Rolex watches have different power-reserve times. This means that if you put your Rolex watch on a table, for example, and then not wear it for a few days, it will have stopped.

A common misconception about what to do when a Rolex watch has stopped is that you should shake it so that it gets energy again, however, this is one of the reasons you should manually wind your Rolex in the first place, as you can risk damaging the movement or wearing it out faster when you shake your watch vigorously.

If your watch has stopped, it may even take a bit of shaking before it starts, but by manually winding your Rolex watch, you can get it going again with ease.

Steps for winding a Rolex watch

Winding a watch is a complex task, but for many watch enthusiasts, it is part of the fun of interacting with a watch.

Step 1 -The first step is to hold the Rolex in your hand and turn the crown counterclockwise towards you. The winding crown will begin to release from the screws within the watch. Once the winding crown has completely detached from the screws, it will pop out and go into the winding position.

Step 2 -Turn the winding crown clockwise or forward for 35 to 40 rotations. You should begin to feel the tension and hear a light clicking sound. Continue to turn the crown approximately forty times to start the watch and give it full power.

Step 3 -After the Rolex is wound, you can now set the date. Pull the crown out slightly and it will click into the next position. This position is how you will set the date. Set the time by turning the knob of the crown clockwise away from you.

Step 4 -Using the winding crown again, pull the crown out to reset the hands. Begin turning the crown clockwise, or forward, and the hour and minute hands move.

Step 5 -Once you have set your time and date for your Rolex, you will need to close the crown. Push down the crown completely before screwing to avoid accidentally adjusting the date.

Step 6 -Lastly, screw the crown of your watch back gently and fully to restore the watch’s hermetic seal. Take care not to over-tighten the crown.

How to adjust the time on your Rolex watch?

while we are on the topic of winding a Rolex watch, we can go over how to adjust the time briefly as well.Because if your watch has run out of energy as a result of you putting it down, you will also need to change the time and possibly other functions such as date.

Rolex Datejust 36 126234

So first off, you will have to wind it, then set it.Different models are operated in different ways, but the basics are generally the same.

Crown position 0: The position 0 of your crown is the wearing position. This means the position in which your crown is pushed in all the way, and if it has a screw-down, it has been screwed-down.

Crown position 1. When you have wound your Rolex, you can take it to position 1. This is the position of your watch where you change the date (if your watch has such a feature). Once the crown has popped out naturally at position 1, you can gently pull the crown out one click. The quickset date function comes in very handy as it allows you to set the date rapidly.

Crown position 3: Position 3 of your crown is the position where you adjust the time of your watch. Through this position, you can reset the hands either clockwise or counterclockwise. Modern Rolex movements also have what is called a hacking function which means that when you pull out the crown to the third position, the seconds hand stops so you can set the time more accurately.

When you are done, make sure you push in or screw down the crown to position 0 to ensure the movement is protected and water-resistant.

Can you overwind a Rolex watch?

You cannot overwind a modern Rolex watch when manually winding it. Today, Rolex designs its watches so that you cannot overwind them no matter how much you wind. The winder simply disengages once it reaches max wind. However, have in mind that it has not always been like that. This means that it is possible to overwind an older Rolex watch that does not have this technical feature. What will happen if you do is the spring will break and it will need to be replaced.

The majority of Rolex watches require bi-directional winding and 650 TPD(turns per day). you can ask the manufacturer or adjust it repeatedly on a trial basis to determine your watch winding pattern.

MOZSLY offers some specialized watch winders for Rolex watches, and below you will find a few of our hot sellers.

These motors keep the noise below 10db, so even if you put it in your bedroom, it will provide you with a very quiet experience. The internal motor is enclosed and can be separated from the watch so that the watch will not be magnetized and affect the time.
