Question about Pulsar Bracelet PXQ502 Wrist Watch

Pulsar (Seiko) Watch Changes Date at different time.

Hey, I accidentally changed the date between 9pm-3am prior to realizing I wasn't supposed to according to the manual. Now the date changes about 45 minutes before midnight. Can I fix this without going to the dealer, and how?
Thanks.

    I have the same problem. I did the same mistake because my watch didn't come with the proper manual and I looked it up online afterwards noticing what I did.

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.

Date setting problems


A jeweler should be able to pull and reset the hands on your watch so that the date changes much closer to midnight. Note that some movements are designed to change the date at one time and the day of the week slightly later. This is done so that the power of the watch movement isn't overwhelmed by moving two date wheels simultaneously.

For a competent repairman, this is a fast and inexpensive repair. However, because of the risk of breaking the brittle pinions on which the hands are set, I would really discourage you from attempting this repair yourself. You might also accidentally scratch or otherwise mar the watch face, which would require an expensive dial refinish that will probably never look exactly like the factory dial.

Good luck!

The middle position is usually used for changing the day and the date.

Turn it clockwise for one and anticlockwise for the other.

The fully out position usually stops the watch and is used to set the hands.

As you rightly observe, there are not many other options!

I assume that your haven't got any instructions for your watch so if the above does not solve your problem, then you can get instructions from the Timex web site "timex.com".

At the bottom of the screen click on "manuals/downloads", then on "product
manual download"

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

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!

I've got a breitling superocean chrono and want to set the time, how do i do this?


Keep in mind that I dont have the watch in my hand... :-)

If this is an authentic Breitling...

You should have 2 buttons on the right with the crown between them. The crown screws down so you need to unscrew it before you attempt to set! Once unscrewed with gentle pressure pull the crown out. There should be 2 clicks, pull to 2nd click or furthest distance from case. That should be the time setting mode. Turn clockwise until the date changes then set your time. To change the date push back to the 1st click and that should be the date set mode. One direction will be for day and the opposite will be date. I believe that if you pull the crown back to 2nd click and push your buttons that should change the subdials for chrono. You might need to push both buttons at the same time.

Ive set Breitlings before but they arent a common watch we see. Most people dont use the Chrono so if the directions dont work for setting those then I wouldnt worry too much about it! Not many people are going to notice those. :-) Also be so very careful if its a real Breitling as they are a very expensive to fix! :-)

***DONT FORGET TO SCREW THE CROWN BACK DOWN OR YOU WILL GET WATER INSIDE THE WATCH!***

you're not supposed to change the time at certain times if it is an automatic. I think any time after 8pm and before 4am (but check your manual). Apparently it messes up the mechanism. Maybe that's the issue?

Hi snapper,

I suppose when you're setting the time on your watch, passing the midnight marker the date changes. In that case you can go to the date funcion and reset the date.

Try this method. Set the date until it reads a couple of days in the past and then set the correct time. Of course do not touch your date or time settings between the hours of 9PM-1AM. Wait until the next day, then move the hour hand forward until you reach the current date with the correct time.
