Questions About Antique Wind Up
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    No, you don’t have to wind a Rolex watch as long as you are wearing it regularly. Rolex watches feature a Perpetual rotor that collects energy from the wrist’s movement and converts it into power for the watch. Browse a collection of expertly authenticated Rolex watches from top sellers on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    Most Rolex watches use a Perpetual rotor which means that they do not need winding if worn regularly.

Make sure to screw the crown back into place after winding to reestablish its waterproof qualities. Shop a collection of authentic Rolex watches from some of the world’s top boutiques on 1stDibs.
