Question about Tag Heuer 2000 Classic WK1113.BA0311 Wrist Watch
Can you tell me how to adjust the time and date on one of these please? I have just bought one second hand but will no manuals.
The crown is probably a screw down style. The screw down stem is designed to keep the water out and should be screwed shut when not adjusting the watch. Look at the watch stem from the side, look from the 3 oclock to the 9 oclock, you should see the end of the stem. Now turn the stem counterclockwise. After a number of turns, the stem should pop out a bit, it is now ready to set. Most waterproof automatic day/date watches have 4 positions for the stem:
1: screwed down (locked)
2: unscrewed position A
3: unscrewed position B (stem pulled out to first "click")
4: unscrewed position C (stem pulled out all the way.)
This is usually used to wind the watch, although some automatic watches cannot be wound by the stem.
Used to set day/date. Turning the stem one direction will advance the day and turning it the other direction will advance the date.
Used to set the time. Some watches will "hack," a term used to describe the ability to stop the second hand for accuracy purposes.
Be sure the watch is at least a little bit wound before starting theis procedure or it will not run when you get it set!
Unscrew the stem and pull it all the way out to position C. Now turn the stem to advance the time clockwise. Continue turning until the day/date advances, now you know you are in the AM 12 hrs of the day. It is important not to advance the day/date with the stem during the 3 hours before and the 3 hours after midnight, so go ahead and move the time to 8 am.
Now push the stem in sligthly until you are in position B. Sometimes it is easier to go to position A, the out to position B. Once in position B, advance the day/date until it is set for the current day/date.
Pull the stem out to position C. Adjust the time to one minute past the current time. Watch your reference timepiece until it matches your watch and push the stem in when they match.
Your watch is now set! Screw the crown down and wear it in good health.
Hacking. If you stop the second hand at 0 seconds, and wait for your reference timepiece to reach 0 seconds also, you can set the watch to within a second accuracy.
Movement slop. If you advance the time past the time you wish to set your watch and then "backup" to your chosen time, you will remove the slop from the geartrain and make your watch set more accuretly
