How does a watch know when to change the date?
The watch movement has to somehow accumulate power to make the date wheel move forward. To do this, a special mechanism is engaged during the hours preceding and following midnight. Standard date change: a small prong or claw on a wheel grabs that date wheel and push it forward to the next date.

How often do you wind a Rolex watch?
There is no need to wind a Rolex if it is worn daily. As you move your wrist throughout your day, the Perpetual rotor transfers energy to the watch, providing a constant and stable power source. When you take it off and set it aside it can retain its charge for up to 70 hours, depending on the model.
How do I fix the date on my automatic watch?
Set the date by pulling the crown out to its first position for the vast majority of mechanical watches with a date function. Turn the crown gently to set the date. If your watch also has a day-of-the-week display, you can usually also set it via the crown in this position by turning it in the opposite direction.
