The watch has a perpetual clock and calendar. Read the instructions on citizenwatches.com If you put the mode in CAL and press the button the second hand will tell you what month you are in.

The watch does not have a "perpetual" clock so it does not know what month it is in. It will treat every month as a 31 day month, so you will have to re-set the date anytime a month is not 31 days.

If you appreciate me answering this for you then please rank this solution as "fixya" or at least "helpful" as what I have said will solve your problem. :-)

Cant change the date


I am assuming the day changes but not the date. There is a halfway setting on the stem you pull two clicks to set time , one click to set day/date, turn one way for day of the week other way for date. If your actual date is sticking you can try going round and round with the hands (takes awhile) to set it! I have noticed the date is the first thing that goes on these watches. If that does not work it will have to be repaired by a watch repairman. hope that helps:)

How to set the date and time on timex t20471


There are two crown positions on this timepiece. The furthest out, or second position, sets the analog time hands. The first crown position in one direction sets the day, and in the other sets the date. To access the first crown position, pull the crown out very slowly until you feel a "click" or pull the crown out all the way and push it in slowly until you feel a "click" with your fingers.

To set the watch:

1) Pull the crown to the second position and bring the hour and minute hand to the 12:00 position, if it switches the day and date after moving past, you are then in AM time.

2) Set the time appropriately to AM/PM. Use http://www.time.gov/ for the most accurate time.

3) Put the crown in the first click position. Set the Date and Day appropriately, having determined the AM/PM time setting. This will ensure that the day/date change at 12:00 midnight instead of 12:00 noon.

I have an eco drive and recently in trying to set the clock back to regular time, I must have done something wrong. The time is correct but the date, and day are one day forward. How do I correct this?


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

How to set an Armitron watch. Can't set the days correctly.


mcdevito75 here, The stem has 2 positions, Carefully slip a fingernail under the stem and lift, it may take a few trys to get used to it, in this first position you should be able to set the DATE very easily and Maybe the DAY of the wwek also, turn the stem 1 way to change the DATE and the other way For the DAY of the week., Let"s figure you can only set the DATE in this first position, First thig to do is set the DAY of the week, go thru the watches 24 hour cycle and set the DAY to 1 DAY before the DAY you need, now in that first position of the stem, set the DATE to 1 DATE before the DATE you need, now in the 2nd position we all know pull the stem out to set the time of day, go thru the 24 hour cycle to bring up the DAY of the week and DATE you need. Now your watch is set and will change on tome at around mid-nite.

Need help adjusting the day to english


Usually pulling out the crown to the second position sets the time by turning in one direction and the day by turning it in the other direction. I some you will need to advance the time through 24 hour cycles till you get the proper day displayed and then set the date.

How to change day and date of fossil me1045


I bought my bf this watch for christmas... i set it before i gave it to him... it is the me1045
It took me forever to figure out how to set it, and even longer to actually set it.
The instructions fossil gives are useless, and the two side buttons do absolutely nothing.

So.. to set the day of the month, you have to spin the knob clockwise for 24 hrs for each day.
So, if it says 2nd, and the date is actually the 4th in the am, you have to spin it 4 times around the face, ie 48 hrs. If you go over, you're screwed and have to go all the way around again which, trust me, takes a really, really long time. Going counter-clockwise will not change the date, only the day.

The day of the week will change with the day of the month. Don't worry; they might not match up at the end. It may be the 4th and say it's monday. That's okay, because, unlike the day of the month, the week days can be turned backwards by turning the dial counter-clockwise.
Remember to take into account whether you are in the AM or PM. PM will require an extra turn beyond when it first switched to the date.

Goodluck; hope this helps.
