Mcdevito75 here, Most day / Date or just date watches with a stem (winder) even if they are quartz have a 2 position stem. Smply slip a fingernail under the crown and lift to it"s first position, this should allow you to change the date with haveing to go the 24 hours but remember the date cahnges at 12--1 Midnite, Best bet, change the date to the date before the date you want then go the 24 hours this way the date will change at midnite and not 12 noon.

SOURCE: Day/Date change

The date on mechanical and automatic watches change normally between 2-4am because this is normally when people sleep. It is not broken or in need of overhaul. It has to change sometime and that is what they have tradionally used as a time for the date to change. Also remember it is normal for an automatic or mechanical watch to loose or gain time friction is the culprit here since the gears do mesh with each other.

Fine watches like Rolex and Omega are beautiful watches but expensive to have cleaned. It should be cleaned about every 10 years or if it starts to loose a lot of time.

Incidently most agree that the Omega speedmaster manual wind (The watch that went to the Moon) is the most accurate of the bunch and is very sought after by collectors!

Of course, there is the way to do that. Try to pull out crown carefully and you will notice that there are two positions (clicks). Second click is when the crown is fully pulled out and the watch hands move by turning crown. But there is first click (lets say - crown is pulled just half way out). In this position the date/day can be quickly changed by turning the crown. Crown=winder.

mcdevito75 here, It takes practice, the crown does have 2 positions, slip a fingernail just under the crown and lift to it"s first position this will allow you to change the DATE (number) once you get the correct Date, push tje crown back in, NOW! pull the crown out to set the DAY itself and the time. On some watches the crowns first position allows both the day and date to be changed by turning the crown in it"s first position clock wise and counter clock wise.

Can not set the date and day


I assume you are talking about a day-date Timex. Timex watches do have a quickset feature meaning the day and date can be set without having to simply advance the time by 24 hours to adjust the Day-Date. Not all watches have a quickset, but I'm sure your Timex does. Unscrew the crown from the stem by turning it counter clockwise until it is free from the threads. At this point pull the crown all the way out so that you can adjust the time. That's position 2 the quickset is in position 1 but the tricky part is getting the crown in the proper position to engage the quickset. Push the crown in very slowly while turning once you see the day or date window advance stop turning you are in position 1. Day and date can be set in this position by turning the crown in either direction. If your watch does not have a quickset or you cannot figure out how to engage it you must set the date by advancing the time forward 24 hours. This will make the date window advance by one day. Once the right date is displayed turn the time backwards 24 hours and this will cause the day window to move without affecting the date window. And that's all there is to it.

I cant adjust the date for my Fossil AM4205..help!


mcdevito75 here, If your Fossil watch has a winding stem it may have 2 positions, gently place a fingernail under the crown and lift as gently as possilble, this should allow you to adjust the date without having to cycle thru the 24 hours to get to the date you want. It may take practise but that first position should be there, Set the date to 1 day before the date you need, then set the watch normally the full 24 hour cycle to get the date you want, this way the watch date will set as suppose to at about mid-night for the next days date.

I nee to set the date. Is always back to the old date


mcdevito75 here, You may have a 2 position stem in your Timex, Slip a fingernail just under the crown and lift to it:'s first position, this should allow you to change the day / date without haveing to go thru the 24 hour cycle. Best Bet, change the date to the date before, then go thru the 24 hours to have the date change at midnite and not 12 noon. If the date keeps falling back to previous, the date wheel maybe loose in that case you can find a small watch repair shop inyour area, but it may be cheaper to replace the watch if this is the case.

Set day of month


The day is changed when the watch passes midnight or thereabouts. Turn the winder until the date changes and then turn it backwards until it is past the date changing point and wind it forwards.

You will have to experiment to find how far back you need to turn it before going forwards again.

Pulsar (Seiko) Watch Changes Date at different time.


mcdevito75 here, The manufacturer recommends you don"t try to change the date between certain hours as this could hurt the date changeing mechanism inside the watch, I don"t think you did any harm (LUCKY) and the date changeing 45 minutes before mid nite is just about right. BUT! if the date change was aliitle closer to mid nite at 1 time you can try to reset the date, here"s how, your stem should have 2 positions to change the date without haveing to cycle the watch the 24 hours 60 times. Slip a finger nail just under the crown and gently, gently lift the crown to it:s first position, it may take a little practise but you"ll get it, once you do, trun the crown and you should see the DATE change, if so set the DATE to 1 DATE before the DATE you want, now pull the stem out and set the correct gate and time of day. Your watch is now reset and date will change on time, around nid nite.
