Setting month, date, and day of the week on non-digital watch

I bought this watch at a discount shop and it didn't have a manual.  It has three additional dials; one to represent day of the week, one for the month, and one for the date.  I cannot figure out how to set these three dials individually.
It is an Element of New York watch. (non-digital)

If the watch only has the crown stem (used to set the time on most watches) on the side of the watch, then that is what will set the chronographs. You should have 1 chronograph that has the day of the week, 1 that has the actual number day of the month, and 1 that represents 24 hours (this one helps you know when the date will change over and when the time is am or pm). It should have three places in the crown stem in which it will "catch" when you pull it out. The first and second catch will set the day and date of the month and the third will set the time, which will also turn the 24 hour chrono hand to show you if you are setting am or pm. If you have a crown stem and two push buttons on the side of your watch, then you usually have a truly functioning chronograph feature, but your watch wouldn't since the chronos have the date function instead.

Try pulling the stem out. Turn the stem in the counter clock wise direction and see if that changes the date/day

B.m.w. geneve 250 watch what are the four small dials for how to operate them denis


If it's the same watch I have, the four dials from right to left are day of week, hours left in the day, date 1-31, and possibly a chronograph (mine makes 2 revolutions/minute). On the case, there are three large knobs on the right and two small flush screw-like objects on left. The large knobs (top to bottom) are month selection, time set, and day of week select. Month and day can be selected by pushing the knob to the desired date. On the left, you will need a fine pen or stylus to press the center. Top to bottom, these two buttons control year and date selection.

Mark Naimer watch came without instruction manual.


I purchased a Mark Neimer (?Naimer) QUO watch style W107J and it came without a manual. The buttons on the side are just for show--they do nothing. The three small dials in the center (week days, month days, and military time) are also useless. This Undergear product is a joke at best.

Relic watch 3 dial


Chances are they represent one of the following-

Month of the Year
Time of Day (military time)
Day of the Week
Day of the Month

It depends on what the dials have on them - usually there is some indicator (abbreviated months, numerical values, etc)
