My Rolex watch keeps stopping even when it is in its winder box. It has just been serviced by Rolex and cost a fortune. Any ideas please?

Either the stem or latch needs to be replaced. It's a common problem for ALL manual wind watches.

Why doesn't it keep running?


It needs to be worn to self wind. I actually bought a winding box so I put watch away it will be turned as if on your wrist. These vary and having owned a couple of winders I chose one that is belt driven, found on Amazon.
if you wear it to sleep it may wind down.
Playing video games ,little wrist motion, may find it stopped.
you mentioned someone to.d you it was fully wound! How can they tell. I cannot wind mine if yours needs winding from stem you may not have real Rollex.

Ive wound watch about 40 times it runs for about 3 minutes then stops again


I have the same watch 20 years old. I cannot wind this watch.
it is self winding , which is generated by arm or wrist movement.
i purchased a box for times I won't be wearing. Will rotate watch 5 minutes every hour ( belt driven- only use that other winders say gear my experience is belt drive more reliable)
if you have to wind this watch I would question if it is real Rolex.

Watch stops after wearing for a few hours


Self winding watches need motion ( wrist twist) without they can stop. Sometimes just shake your wrist for a few seconds. I purchased a winder box for times I don't wear. ( Amazon)!
it is belt driven winder, rotates watch 5 minutes every hour.

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

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.

If the watch is not worn for a day, is it normal for it to stop or slow down? Vintage SS mens datejust, oyster perpetual.


mcdevito75 here, Yes it is normal, especially if your Rolex is an automatic watch. The motion of your Wrist / Hand keeps your watch wound thru the Counter balance on the movement, as the counter balance turns it winds the mainspring little by little, thus keeping your watch wound. Once you take off your watch, if long enough the mainspring simply un-winds and slows and will eventually stop your watch completely. You can keep your Rolex wound even when you take it off by means of a watch winder, a small machine that will keep your watch in motion, or by hand, by rocking the watch back and firth in your hand for about 30 seconds, say before you gpo to bed at night, this way there is always some wind to your watch.

My rolex jz stopped moving.


AS I'm sure you know, when changing the time (presumably by pulling out the winder), the watch stops.

Normally the watch re-starts when the winder is returned to the "in" position.

Check that the winder is fully home.

If it doesn't start, pull the winder out and in again. If necessary try this several times.

If this does not solve the problem, then a visit to Rolex may be necessary!

IT IS RUNNING SLOW EVEN THOUGH IT'S BEEN WOUND.


If your watch is less than 2 years old then they may service it for free, and if it is that new I would take it back to point of purchase for assistance. Even though Rolex's are Chronometers they are not known for their ability to keep near perfect time. If you are losing only 6 seconds a day then you are still over 99% accurate and it does not really get much better than that (that means you may loose a couple mninutes a month. A watch winder that you set your watch in while not wearing can keep it spinning/ winding and therefore may increase accuracy.
If your watch is loosing a lot of time (half an hour a day) or if the watch is more than 5 years old, it likely needs some servicing. Oils can harden and thicken within your watch and this will affect the performance. Rolex recommends servicing your watch every 5 years or so to keep it in peak condition. A usual service entails a cleaning, oiling and regulating; this usually costs from $350 to $700 depending on where you go and if nothing else is wrong with your watch.
But again, if you are only loosing a few minutes a day, then your watch is still in good shape and I would not recommend paying the money to get it to work only a small bit better.

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!!
