Like many Rolex geeks out there, you should also know that many Rolex watches use self-winding movements. Although this does not particularly mean that a traditional winding action does not occur, instead it is simply done automatically. When you wear your Rolex Datejust 41 and just normally spend your day, your watch winds itself; however you can manually wind your Rolex too.
While most of the Rolex watches work or run on automatic movements and therefore they continue to work as long as you keep it on your wrist. Although your watch might run out of power if it is left motionless for a few days. But don’t worry because it’s simple to get it working again.
Let’s take the ‘The Oyster Perpetual Datejust’ as an example because of its simplicity & elegance. The Oyster Perpetual Datejust’s Oyster case, guarantees waterproofness to a depth of 100 meters or 330 feet therefore, it proficiently protects the self-winding mechanical movement, which is entirely manufactured by Rolex. Although, automatic winding might not bother you, but manual winding will. So, read on to equip your mind about ‘how to wind your watch manually!’
You should know that before being wearing your watch for the first time, or before stopping it, your Rolex watch must be wound manually in order for it to work precisely & correctly. To wind your watch manually, first completely unscrew the winding crown, then turn it clockwise numerous times. Also, turning or winding in the other direction will have no effect. Minimum 25 turns will do the trick. This is adequately necessary for partial winding. Your Rolex will now be wounded automatically as long as you keep it on your wrist. Now, lastly, you should carefully screw the crown back down against the case to make sure that your watch remains waterproof.
The Rolex Datejust 41 is an epitome of the modern watch; thanks to it aesthetics and functions, this watch is slowly becoming a classic. The Datejust 41 is an extremely trendy and fashionable watch. The Datejust has been around for decades, and traditionally, it is one of the most recognizable of watches.

The Datejust Style – Elegance Personified
The famous Datejust was launched in 1945, and it was the first self-winding waterproof chronometer wristwatch which displayed the date in a window at 3 o’clock on the dial. Furthermore, it also inculcated all the major innovations that Rolex had made to the modern wristwatches till then.
Why is the Date in the Datejust different?
In the Older models of the Datejust, the date would begin to change hours before the midnight actually occurred. But since 1955, the date-change mechanism was adapted to operate immediately, and the date aperture was modified with a Cyclops lens, which in turn magnified the date for a smooth viewing experience.
The Cyclops Lens – Best in the business
The Cyclops lens was invented by Rolex in 1953. This lens beautifies & enhances the date aperture and magnifies the date display area for easy viewing. The Cyclops Lens is one of the most uniquely distinguishable Rolex features out there.
