How to Set & Wind a Rolex Date and Rolex Datejust

Rolex DatejustYou finally got that Rolex Datejust you have had your eye on for a while and you plunked down a lot of cash for it, and now that you have it, you pull out the crown and it clicks once, twice and you are turning it clockwise and counter clockwise and the date isn’t coming up right and the time won’t do right and it’s just getting annoying.

One thing about a watch, especially a Rolex, is that you have to know how to set the day and date correctly in order for the function to work correctly and stay on track, but also for the inner workings to continue to work the way they should.  It sounds really simple, but the fact is, most of us don’t know how to properly set our watches, and when it’s a Rolex, each model is a bit different.

For you first time buyers or for those that have multiple models or for those that just want to learn, I have put together an easy to follow guide on how to wind and set a Rolex, starting with the Rolex Date and the Rolex Datejust.  Stay tuned as I expand on this list in future articles!
