Try to advance hands for full circle more (12 hrs more). If this does not work, then you will have to find your nearest watch repair shop, because one of the date change gear wheels is faulty.
Rate me, plz.

How do I change date on my Invicta 7352 ?


Usually, after unscrewing a *****-down crown, pulling the stem out one click will allow the date to be advanced by turning the crown in one direction or the other. Depending on the movement, a clockwise turn of the crown may advance the date and the counter clockwise turn might advance the day of the week, for example.

If all else fails, pull the stem out two clicks and advance the watch hands 24 hours for each day you wish to advance the date.

How do I set the day of the week dial on my Swiss Legend Chronograph?


If the day will not change when you pull the crown out to the first position (try both directions) then pull the crown out to the second position. Advance the hands until yesterday shows in the day window. Now set the date by putting the crown in the first position and set it to yesterdays date. Now advance the hands (position 2 until the date and day change and then set the time. Done

SETTING DATE JUST ROLEX


After you unscrew the crown it is already in winding position. If you pull the crown, it will go to the date setting position. Further pull of crown will set it in time setting position. Try to pull the crown till you get it in correct date setting position and change the desired date. Do not use the date setting between 10pm - 2am, as this can damage date mechanism. The best way is to pull out crown to the time setting position and set the time to 6.30(anytime) and then push the crown in to date setting position and change the date to the previous day's date. Then again pull the crown out to the time setting position and advance hands forwards (clock wise) till hands pass 12.00 (midnight) and the date changes automatically to the desired one, then adjust the time, push the crown fully in and screw the crown on.

How do i set the day (Mon-Sun) on my ax2013 watch?


When you pull the crown out there are two positions. The first is the day/date setting position. Turn the crown one way and the date changes, the other direction the day of the week changes. Set both the day and date to yesterday. It will become evident why when you finish. Now pull the crown all the way out and notice when you turn the crown the hands move. Advance the hands to the 12 o'clock position in a clockwise direction. As you pass 12 the date may begin to change. If not then you now know that was noon and not midnight because the date only changes at midnight. If the date did not change advance the hands all the way around 12 hours. This will now be midnight and the date should begin to change. It may be almost instantaneous or may take until 12:30 or so. Continue advancing the hands to 4 o'clock. You should see between midnight and 4 the day of the week advance. Now the day/date are correct for today and the final step is to set the correct time. Remember, you are now set a 4 AM. Advance the hands to the correct time. That means if it is 3 in the afternoon, you must advance past noon to 3. You cannot go backwards. That would be 3 AM!

Setting the time and date


There isn;t any downloadable manuals for Rolex watches, but operation of Rolex Day-Date is very simple:
1) when you unscrew the crown, it is in winding position,
2) when you pull out the crown to the first click, it is in day and date setting position (depending wich way you turn the crown).
NOTE: to adjust the day or date, previously you have to advance hands forward, passing 12 o'clock (midnight) mark and stop advancing at 4.00 a.m. using the crown in position as described in chapter 3. When done - push the crown fully in, then pull out to the first click and only then adjust the day or date.
3) when you pull the crown further out to the second click, it is in time setting position.
To find the daytime or night time on the watch: pull out crown to the second click and advance watch hands forward till you pass the 12 mark on dial. If the date changes as you pass it - it is the night time (midnight). If the date do not change as you pass it - it is the daytime (noon).
After all settings being done, allways screw the crown back down as it protects the watch from water and moisture.
Never use watch in sauna- it's not designed for that.
