The advice given here is accurate to a degree. When wound, a rolex daytona IS running. However, it is the running seconds hand in the small sub-dial that is actually running. In the earlier Daytonas, this sub-dial was at the 9 o'clock position on the dial, (pre-2001 series daytonas). The later daytonas, from 2001 on, use the seconds at 6 position for counting seconds. The main sweeping second hand on the watch dial will NOT start until activated by the pusher at the 2 position. That pusher needs to be unscrewed and then pushed to start the large sweeping second hand. This action, in turn, starts the remaining 2 sub-dials in motion, counting minutes and hours. To stop the chronograph function, you push the pusher @ the 2 position again, to stop the sub-dial hands from counting, and then push the pusher @ the 4 position to re-set the dials to their "straight up position". This stops the chrono's function, until it is needed again, BUT the main running seconds, (at either the 9 or 6 sub-dial position, depending on the year series of the daytona) will continue to run, thus keeping accurate time.
Hope this gives you a better idea of how the timekeeping of the chronograph function on a Daytona works.
So, to start your seconds running you need to start the chrono function by pressing the pusher at the 2 position. That will allow you to see the large sweeping second hand I think you're referring to here.
Hope this has helped.

This is one sign it maybe real. Everything from the solid headpieces, double steel pins, crew together band, gas relief valve, etc. can be signs that this is a real Rolex. Your best bet is always to go to a Rolex dealer or qualified watch maker/technician for an inspection. Good luck!

If the case back is clear one of the easiest ways to tell if the watch is a fake. If the case back is engraved this is another way you can if the watch is not real. Click on this link below and view the page to learn more about the differences between "real" and "fake" Rolex watches:

There are a couple of things to look at first. If it has a date displ;ayed on the face, the magnifier on the crystal appears like a small bubble on the crystal. If it's flat, it's probably a knockoff. Rolex also laser etches a tiny image of their logo on the crystal next to the crown. You'll need a magnifier to see it. If it's missing it's fake. If it has a see through back it's fake. Last, check the serial # against the Rolex on-line database of serial #s'.
