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

HOW TO SET DAY / DATE ON AN ANALOG (STEM) WATCH


mcdevito75 here, Over Forty (40) years ago, watch manufactures added, to some of their ANALOG (wind up) and almost all of their DIGITAL (button display) watches the FEATURE of the, MONTH or DAY of the WEEK and the DATE, not only was the time of day available but also the DATE which you no longer had to go searching for, it was readily available on your wrist. The PROBLEM came with SETTING the CORRECT MONTH or DAY of the week and the DATE as some MONTHS HAD 31 DAYS rather than 30 DAYS, this meant you had to CYCLE your watch at least 62 times to get to the CORRECT DATE and mant times, when you finally did reach the CORRECT DATE, the day of the week was off, meaning more CYCLES thru the 24 hours.-------- HERE is the EASY way to SET the MONTH or DAY / DATE on your QUARTZ / MECHANICAL (STEM) watch without haveing to go thru the 24 hour cycle so many, many times. Not only is this, WEAR on your fingers, you can also damage your watch with some many cycles of the 24 hours to SET the correct MONTH or DAY / DATE. ------ HERE ARE THE BASICS,---------- Your ANALOG or STEM watch either QUARTZ or MECHANICAL should have a TWO (2) position STEM we are only familiar with the ONE (1) position we use to set the TIME, there should be TWO (2) positions to the STEM. First pull out the STEM to adjust the MONTH or DAY depending on your watches display, if your watch DISPLAYs the DAY of the week, set the DAY to one (1) DAY before the DAY you want, don"t worry about the DATE (number) yet. Once you have the MONTH or DAY set, push the STEM back into the watch, NOW with a finger nail just under the STEM (usually from the back of the stem as there is more room) gently lift the STEM to it"s first position, It may take some practice so be patient, once the STEM is in it"s first position you should be able to turn the STEM to adjust the DATE (number), if so Adust the DATE (number) to ONE (1) DATE before the DATE you want, This way your watch will be adjusted to change the DAY / DATE at the correct time. Once you have the DATE (number) adjusted to ONE (1) DATE before the DATE you want, push the STEM back into the watch, NOW pull the STEM out to adjust the time, go thru the 24 hour cycle to adjust to the correct DAY DATE (number) and time of day.------------ Your QUARTZ or MECHANICAL (stem) watch is now adjusted to the correct DAY / DATE and will change at the correct hour which is generally 12--1 AM.

Can someone tell me how to set date month and day on an attention manual watch


A manual watch is set by pulling out the winder.

Those with a date have three positions:-

1 normal operation

3 fully out - used to set the time

2 half way between 1 & 3 which is used to set the date and day. In this position turn it one way to set the day and the other way to set the date.

Return the winder to position 1 after setting.

Gossip watch, has only the stem ( no other stem or buttons) watch has small dials one with day of week, one with date, I don't how to change thEM. Thank you


If you have only the stem to set your watch, then you have very few options.

I would expect your watch crown (stem) to have three positions;-

1) The home (normal position); this is used to wind the watch.

3) Fully out; this one is usually for setting the time; clockwise to advance and anticlockwise for retarding the the hands.

2) Between 1) and 3); this setting should be for setting the day of the week and the date. You will have to experiment to find which way tor turn for date and day.

I purchased a Marco Max watch with day, date and moon phase. How do I set each of the dials to match the correct day of week, month and hour?


The crown has three positions. The A position is when it’s pushed all the way in. You can’t set anything in this position. The C position is when it’s pulled all the way out. The B position is the click between all the way in and all the way out. My biggest problem is that I read the directions to mean that there were FOUR positions. I didn’t realize A was all the way in. I thought there was three pulled out positions.
To set the day of the week (Sun, Mon, etc.): Pull the crown all the way out (position C) and turn the time to just after midnight. The setting will click to the next day. To advance it an additional day, you don’t have to turn the hands another twenty four hours. You can turn the hands backward to before midnight (you will see the day of the week setting click a little, but not go backwards), then turn the hands past midnight again.
I recommend setting the day of the week setting to YESTERDAY. You’ll see why later.
To set the date: 3341598183_60e77d12e5.jpgPull the crown one click out (position B) and turn the crown away from you (clockwise). This will advance the day indicator (it looks like a second hand). To set the month, you have to keep turning until you get past an entire year. There is no separate way to set the month. To make the correct month show, you must keep turning the crown past every day of the year until you get to the correct day.
I recommend setting the date to YESTERDAY. I’ll explain why later.
To set the moon phase: Pull the crown one click out (position B) and turn the crown toward you (counter clockwise). To find out what phase the moon is currently in, here are a couple of websites:
Once again, set it to the moon phase for YESTERDAY.
To set the time: Pull the crown all the way out (position C) and turn the crown either away or towards you to set the time. Keep turning the time away from you (clockwise) until you get past midnight. Once you get past midnight, ALL the settings should change (day of the week, date and moon phase). Now you KNOW you’re on today’s date at just after midnight. Set the correct time and your Luar watch is ready to go!
Review 3342440924_5fa48ca4fe.jpgMany of the Swatch enthusiasts were disappointed that the Luar is a battery powered watch instead of an automatic. With a price tag of approximately $450, it’s a little much to expect an automatic with a real moon phase. I’ve talked at length about what I desire in a watch here:
My desires have changed a lot since that day nearly four years ago when I went looking for the perfect
