You should be able to find a position in between home and the fully out (time setting) position.

Perhaps your watch has a very soft "click" in the central position. Try pulling out the winder very gently. If there is no click at the central position, then perhaps there isn't one but there must be a central position to set the time, so estimate where the central position is and try to set the date.
Good luck!

I have a Tissot Automatic PR 516 from the early 70s. Time is kept well. Date moves forward correctly but it is the wrong date. I am unable to turn back the date. I am able to turn back the day. Any...


The crown wheel (winder) should have 3 positions, (1) the normal winding position (3) fully out; at this position the watch stops and the time can be adjusted.

(2) This position is between the 1 & 2 and is used to adjust the day and date. If you wish to change the date by winding the crown backwards or forwards.

Since watches can very a little, if turning the crown when in position 2 the date does not change, pull the crown to position 3 and turn the hands until you pass the midnight position, when the date will change and then re-set the time. If you wish to advance the time more than one day, when it changes, wind the crown backwards past the midnight position and then wind it forwards again. Repeat until the correct date is showing and then re-set the time. The exact distance you need to turn the crown to change the date will have to be found by experimenting!

I couldn't find the manufacturers' web site but I found the following , which may help;-

The unit automatically receives the time signal everyday at midnight and makes any required adjustment to the time displayed.


The WAVE OK indicator and the Tower Icon on the display will show if the time signal is successfully received or after manually pressing the SET/WAVE button

1. Press SET/WAVE button after setting TIME ZONE and DST
2. Press + or - button sequentially to set the year (holding down the button will change the year at a high speed)
3. Press SET/WAVE button to confirm the year set and start the date process
4. Press + or - button sequentially to set the current date (holding down the button will change the date at a high speed)
NOTE: The weekday changes automatically depending on the year and date

To Set the Time
1. Press the SET/WAVE button after setting the calendar
2. Press + or - button sequentially to set the minutes (holding down the button will change the year at a high speed)

How to set or restart the fossil automatic ME 1030? Because the problem now is when the time turn at 12 at midnight, the date din turn..


sometimes during time set, the hands are set to change date at day time.
check it your date turns during 12 noon, if yes move the hands clockwise until you set your time and date on sync.
say you want to set your watch date:10th and time:10:15am
adjust your date at 9th
then move your hands clockwise until the date turns to 10th at the 12 thats the 12 midnight.
then continue moving your hands clockwise until you reach 10:15am

Just bought a Lacoste watch,and I am puzzled why they stress the importance of not changing the date between the hours of 11.45pm and 2.00am?.


If you change the date between those hours, and the watch is set for the correct time, it may automatically roll the date forward yet again. It could mess up the internal mechanism for changing the date. The date starts to change around 11:45 PM and can take a good long while for it to fully "engage" the new date, which is why they say to wait til 2:00 AM. The internal mechanics that change the date are very sensitive. If you force it to change the date while it is automatically trying to change it, it can off-set the little gears and they may not function correctly in the future. So just make sure the time on the watch is not between 11:45 PM and 2:00 AM when you change it. The best thing to do is to change the date to the day PRIOR to the day you want (for example today is the 21st, set it to the 20th, then advance the hour / minute hands past midnight so it automatically rolls into the 21st, and then you will know if you are on AM or PM).....

But just avoid setting it between 11:45 PM and 2:00 AM as they mention.


Please make sure you rate my answer 4 thumbs up, it is extremely important to me. I would be forever grateful if you could do so. If you need more help on this question please just respond to my answer here and I will get right back to you.


Thanks
Tim

Changing the date on a fossil watch- how do you do it?


Which Fossil do you own?

Analog Date Watch:
Date Setting
  1. Pull the crown out to position 2.
  2. Turn the crown either clockwise or counter-clockwise and set the date for the previous day. The direction that moves the date varies on different watch models.

Analog Automatic:
Time and Date Setting

  1. Pull crown out to position 2 and rotate clockwise to set time.
  2. Pull crown out to position 3; date will advance automatically. To set to required date, continue to rotate crown between positions 2 and 3.
  3. Push crown back to position 1.
Analog Digital:
Time and Calendar Setting

  1. Press and hold pusher A for 2 seconds to enter setting mode. Year will begin flashing.
  2. Press pusher A to select year, month, date, hour, minute, second, and then exit setting mode.
  3. Press pusher B to adjust digit.
  4. Press and hold pusher B to adjust digit automatically.
  5. If no pushers are operated for 30 seconds, setting will be returned to Normal Time Display.





These are the three most common Fossils. If yours isn't here please let me know which model you have and I'll get you the instructions.
Hope this helps.
