you do not need to return, as this is re-settable. Pull out crown to the first position (date setting) and then toggle with upper push button. If upper button do not do the job, try the bottom one. When you reach 12, then push the crown back in. Start the chrono, stop it and check if it returns to 12.
To set a basic wristwatch, simply pull the crown (the winder button at the 3:00 position on 99% of watches) out gently - it will click into adjusting position. Wind to send time and then push back in again.
Variations on this are: If you have a watch with date display, the crown will have 2 positions, the first click will be to set the date and the second click (fully out) is to set time. If you need to adjust the date, I suggest you wind the date to the day before you need and then use the second click to wind the hands to the correct date. This way you will be able to know if you have the hour at a.m or p.m position and avoid it have the date changing during the day instead of at night.
One last variation for wristwatches is a screw down crown. Some water resistant and sports models incorporate an added feature whereby the crown is threaded so it can be tightened down to avoid water entering - the most common place water gets into a watch! If you have one of these, you simply need to screw the crown anticlockwise until it pops out and then refer to the instructions above. Don't forget to push and screw the crown back in clockwise when you are done
mcdevito75 here, If your Timex has a Stem (winder) do this, Slip a fingernail just under the stem and gently lift the crown just a bit, the stem has 2 positions, it may take practice so be patient, once the crown is in it"s first position you"ll be able to change the DATE, set the date 1 date before the date you want so that the date will change on time at about Midnite. Now with the date 1 date before the date you want, push the crown back in and pull the crown out to set the hands, go thru the 24 hour cycle once till you reach the date you want, set also the time of day and your done. Hope this helps.
mcdevito75 here, Your Timex stem (winder) has 2 positions, slip a fingernail just under the crown (winder) and lift the crown to it"s first position this will allow you to change the DATE (number) with out haveing to go thru the 24 hour cycle some many times.

mcdevito75 here, If your watch has a stem (winder) it is most likely 2 position, Pull out stem to first position, this should allow you to change the date, set the date at 1 number before the actuall date you want, NOW pull the stem out to set the time, rotate the hands until you have the date and time for the actuall date.

Push the stem (winder) all the way in, NOW just lift the stem a little to it:s first position, this should allow the date, (number ) to change, change that number to the date before the date you want, NOW pull the stem out to set the hands, rotate the hands to set proper date and time.
mcdevfito75 here"s how to change the day and date on your vintage Seiko watch, Pull the stem out to the set position and simply turn the stem (winder) every second time around to the 1--2 3 O"oClock position the day will chage, once you get the day push in the stem in all the way, NOW with your fingernail just under the stem (winder) gently lift the stem up to it"s first notch or position, with the stem at this first notch or position, you can turn the stem and the hands won"t move but the date(number) will change, simply go to the correct number / date and your done, push the stem back in a your ready to go.
I've just worked it out! Change month....depress inset button on side above hand winder. One push with cocktail stick or similar will advance month. Change date.....pull out hand winder half way, turn knob anti-clockwise until desired number is met. Change day...... pull out hand winder fully, turn clockwise passing midnight repeatedly until day is set, continue to set time, keeping an eye on 24 hour display for am/pm.
All the best, Bob
