When truning crown to change date, the date stops moving
HI, I am sort of new to automatic watches but I currently have a tagheuer aquaracer CAF2112, when the hour dial is stationed in between 9 PM and 1AM, the date won't move when I turn the crown. In any other position, the date moves fine when I turn the crown. Are this watches supposed to be like this or is it a mechanical problem. Thanks Help please thanks.

I have the same problem with mine....They have some kind of manufacturer malfunction , tag will not admit. My is in the shop for the 3rd time ...at this point they should replace my watch...this one is a lemon.
Do as follows:1) At any time of the day pull the crown out and advance watch hands forward for EXACTLY 12 hours ( for example: if it's 6.35 on your watch, then after advancing hands it will be 6.35 again, just minute hand will be forwarded clockwise 12 full circles, while hour hand will be forwarded 1 full circle). Push the crown back in. 2) Pull the crown out to the date setting position and change to the desired date. Pull the crown back in. Now your watch will be changing dates at midnight continuosly.
Tags have a screw down crown (winder knob) turn the knob counter clock-wise until you feel the crown unscrew (not off) then pull the crown carfully. It will pop once this is for date adjust. Then pull once more and you can now adjust the hands, set accordingly then push crown back in. After you push it back in gently compress the crown and tighten clockwise until it stops. CAUTION!!!!!!! Tags are not waterproof if the crown is not screwed back down. I hope this helps I am actually a car guy (just happen to own a couple)
the crown is a screw down type to keep the watch water tight. Unscrew the crown (what you refer to as the dial) and you will then be able to set the date, time, etc. and be able to wind the watch manually. P.S. You unscrew the crown by rotating it counter-clockwise.
