The quickset on my sub has become wildly inconsistent. I’ve been wearing it less frequently in quarantine, could the fact that it keeps going dead have anything to do with it? I’ve been wearing regularly past several days but no dice. Any suggestions? Just take it in?

Not really relevant for your specific case, but a generally good advice: folks should not quickset the date on certain movements between 10:00 and 2:00 (or 9:00 and 3:00 to be more conservative)

The date wheel may be engaged at these times, and quick setting can actually damage the lever associated with the date mechanism

I dont know if the 3035/3135 movements have this issue, but I am always extra careful with it and always change the date with the hour hand at 6:00

Thank you for the detailed expl!

Sounds like it needs service. I wear mine infrequently and have no such issues. Actually, on any of my watches.

Just curious, what do you mean by inconsistent?

When I pull the crown to the first stop and rotate it, sometimes it will change the date as it’s supposed to. Sometimes it will change a couple days then stop changing. Sometimes it won’t change at all.

How long since it has been serviced? Is it still under warranty? Are you sure it’s a real Rolex? Has it been dropped?
Irregular wear should not no affect a date complication, but damage could.

That’s pretty cool. I thought it was exciting when I ordered a watch repair kit so that I could resize the bracelet on the Orient I have. Since it’s relatively inexpensive, I told myself I would service it in the future if possible. I thought it was wishful thinking, but you have inspired me now to give it a try when the time comes

If it’s just the quickset function, and the date changes normally while the watch is running, the star adjuster has gotten slightly gummed up in its track (it slides freely when clean, and after a while oils or whatever can gum it up a little bit). Nothing for it but to clean it, which is a simple 10 min job but if you’re not willing to open your watch to do it you might as well just have it serviced.

Yup, that sounds like it could be it!

Hi fishes
I was supposed to have my

Even in this rescheduled interview, my interviewer didn't join. This time my recruiter joined and said she'll reschedule my interview.
She still hasn't done that even after a follow up.
Is this common? Is this some kind of patience test?
I have no clue but I'm really frustrated at this point.
Please suggest

Just bought older Rolex model from the early 2000’s and don’t have much experience here. I know there can be some flex/give in the bracelets but is it normal to be able to see the screw/bar itself between some of the links? One end of the bracelet is like this while the other is definitely more secure. Not sure if it’s typical or unusual and whether I should initiate a return.
