What is the best way to store an automatic watch? Say if your in favour of one and want to keep other/others stored for a considerable time?

I have heard its best to have the winder fully extended (out)?

Jonny

Good job steve!!

Special thanks to Rikki for his very detailed input.

Thanks to all the TechXperts they have all been very constructive in educating us with the finer and most interesting technical aspects of the wonderful micro-machines that we all greatly appreciate.

2010 gmt masters 116710

Hi,
I wondered if anyone knew how I could purchase a replacement "security clasp" for Bracelet #78200. There is no damage to the watch and it's simple to affix a new one. However, I'm being quoted $475 by one authorized repair shop here in Chicago. I've contacted Rolex on Wilshire and they advised me a new replacement part woudl be $265. I don't feel like paying $200 for for 2 seconds of labor. Does anyone know where/how to obtain this clasp?
Mike in Chicago.

As someone who does all his own maintenance or god forbid repairs if need be on my own watches I really like the idea of a tech section for information like questions and answers to the "Nuts & Bolts" side of these watches !

Ladies rolex 2030

I am a lover of Rolex watches having owned a few. My wife is currently wearing a rolex 2030 that clearly does need a service. I do service watches as a hobby and have recently serviced my 3135. I have inspected the movement & for its age its looks really clean. However my only issue is how to regulate it as this is not a familiar set up I have encountered.I have a microstella tool if needed. Any advise would be most appreciated.

GMT Master ii 16710

Hi All,
I would like to introduce myself to you all as Iím new to the Rolex forum as I have just perchased a GMT Master 16710n 1999 to my collection of watches, I have a question to ask and I hope you donít mind.
I brought the watch from a reputable jewellers last Thursday and I have noticed that the hour hand whilst setting the GMT function doesnít move only the date so itís impossible to set the time for another time zone, is this problem common on these watches or after reading up about this it could be that the movement isnít a Rolex 3168? The watch is covered under warranty for a year from the shop I brought it from so Iím covered on that front.
Also if I was to take the watch to a Rolex shop is this something the could fix in the short term without sending it away to Rolex to be serviced as I am currently working on a super yacht and I wonít be returning to the uk until next year.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated and thank you for your time.
Many kind regards James
Ps I love this watch and Iím very happy with it on my wrist it looks amazing

Icon20 1960's vintage president bracelet (from 1803) compatible w/18238?

Howdy,
Hope I am initiating this request for info properly. I am fortunate to have an early 1803 with 1555 mvmnt and good condition president bracelet. Will this old bracelet properly fit a 18238?
