I cant get my date to change when I pull out the setting dial, I have tried pulling it out one click and two clicks and the date still wont change. Is this something I can fix or am I going to have to send it in to Citizen?
Sounds like a return to the manufacturer to me, you generally only get two clicks one for the date one for the dial hands. But try one click and turn in both directions, or two clicks go to 11:59pm through 12:00am back and forward and see if it will change date that way.

Pull crown out 1 click to set day/date, set to one day behind actual date... Then, pull crown out an additional click to move hour/minute hands around to set exact date by hour/minute a complete 12-24 hour revolution if necessary to get AM or PM accurate for the proper day/date. :)
if you pull the set dial right out you can set normal time. now there are different stages the set dial can be pulled, the first click when pulled is usually secondary time, 2nd click is date and 3rd final click is main time.
Pull the dial out on the left hand side of the watch near the date indicator. If you only pull it out slightly (first click) it will only be able to change the date. If you pull it out further (second click) you will see that the second hand has stopped moving and you can then turn the dial to change the time. Good Luck.
the crown of the watch has two clicks, pull it gently once and you can set the date and day, pull it gently again a second time and you can set the time. The proper way to set the time and date is to set first the day,date late at the actual date, then move the hands around the clock until the date change at 12 oclock this is evening, then moving the hands around until you reach the actual time. By doing so you will set the day, date and time in syn to 24 hrs change.
example: you want to change it to sat 12th 11am
set the day and date to fri 11th
then move the hands around clockwise until the day and date change at 12 oclock continue moving the hands until you reach 11am
1. Pull the crown out one click.
A. Turn dial until function hand rests on "CAL"
2. Pull dial out one more click (should be all the way out)
A. hold down button "A" (top button) until the second hand completes one counter clockwise rotation (should be pointing at current month)
B. Press "A" button a second time and the Day/Leap year hand will move.
3. At this point spin the crown either backwards or forwards and watch as the Day/Leap year hand spins clockwise or counter-clockwise. The Date will adjust per each revolution.
Hope this helps as it took me using the correct movement number on the url in the previous post (for Calibre 8700 the movement number is "E870").
Pull the crown out to the 2nd click...rotate the hands clockwise until the day or date changes, that will let you know that the watch is at midnight. Set the correct time, push the crown in all the way. Now pull it out to the first click and turn either direction to change the day/date to english! When your watch is correctly set then push the crown all the way back in and you are finished! :-)
Pull the crown out 2 clicks and rotate it to set the hands push it one click in to set the date. If you need to set your chrono hands or resynchronize them then pull the crown out 2 times and push the upper button until the hand is synchronized with the 12, the lower button should adjust the other dial the same way. If you have a third dial that needs synched only pull the crown out 1 click and push the top button to synch the hand on the dial.
Most watches have a stem that you pull out to set the time. The little knob on the end of the stem is called a crown. For a day/date watch, there are two clicks. The first click when you pull out the stem is the day / date setting, the second click sets the time.
When you are on the first click, twisting the crown one direction changes the day of the week; twisting the other direction changes the date. If yours has only the date, it could be either direction depending on the manufacturer.
You should be able to pull the crown out ( the piece on the right hand side that sets the time) half-way. Your watch has three settings for the crown: all the way in, half-way out , and all the way out that sets the time. Pull it half way out and turn the crown clock-wise. You should hear a click when you do this. If the date dosn't change turn it again. The date should move for you. If you find it dosn't please let me know , and I will be glad to research the answer for you. Good luck!!
