The watch needs to be serviced. Its a great watch and the service wont be cheap but you will get it back in wonderful shape. A good repair shop can do this work, try a yelp search in your area.

Some movement noise is ok, however it may be 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

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.

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.

After you unscrew the crown it is already in winding position. If you pull the crown, it will go to the date setting position. Further pull of crown will set it in time setting position. Try to pull the crown till you get it in correct date setting position and change the desired date. Do not use the date setting between 10pm - 2am, as this can damage date mechanism. The best way is to pull out crown to the time setting position and set the time to 6.30(anytime) and then push the crown in to date setting position and change the date to the previous day's date. Then again pull the crown out to the time setting position and advance hands forwards (clock wise) till hands pass 12.00 (midnight) and the date changes automatically to the desired one, then adjust the time, push the crown fully in and screw the crown on.

You bend it , literally take hold of the inside arch and bend it with your hands in not out this shortens the , the length and helps it close .

Luke, the serial number is located between the lugs at the 6 marker.
You need to remove the wristband at that point to see it. The model number is located at the 12 marker.

The running ime for a self einding watch (which I presume tha yours is) varies from maker to maker and model to model.

I explored their web site but was unable to find anything useful about running time.

Most other types run for a time in the range 36-72 hours and 12 hours seems rather mean as it does not allow much more than sleeping time before it stops.

I suggest that you approach the supplier and discuss it with them.
