Question about Watches

I can't seem to get the date to switch back on my watch. I have tried turning the dial on the side but it won't go back...only forwards. Is there a way to fix this?

SOURCE: Tag Carrera CV2014 Date Keeping problem.

Lets get down to the facts.

The watch may have been serviced and may have been the beginning of this problem.

BUT is it really a problem?

Changing a 1230 or 0330 still means its on the correct date in the morning.

I purchased a Cote d' Azur watch & necklace set on a cruise ship recently, and can't seem to set the other three functions on the watch. There is only one pin but there are three addtional...


One of the dials should be seconds so you won't be setting that, the other two should be day and date, when you pull the stem and crown all the way out you can set the time there is a halfway setting ( pull the stem halfway out) if you turn one way it's the day of the week the other way is the date. Hope this helps! Also what appears to be a second hand on the dial a lot of times is actually a stopwatch.

Don't know how to set the date except by winding the time dial repeatedly past 12 to get to present date--must be an easier way


I presume that you are winding the watch 24 hours to change the date.

You can shorten the time it takes to change the dates in the following manner:-

Wind the watch until the date changes, then turn it back until it passes 12 again and then turn it forward. Each time it passes 12 the date should increase by a day.

You may have to experiment to find how far past 12 in both directions to get the date to change.

How do you set the day of the week?


Since you didnt tell me what KIND of watch it is I am giving you a general instructions.

  • Wait until the second hand is at zero (the top of the dial). Then pull the crown knob out as far as it will go to set the time on your watch. Turn the knob in either direction and look at the three additional hands on the time dials of your watch: the minute hand, the hour hand and the 24-hour hand.
  • Step 2 Stop turning the knob when all minute and hour hands are pointing to the correct time. Pay special attention to the 24-hour hand so that you have a.m. or p.m. correct.
  • Step 3 Push the knob back in exactly when a new minute is starting so that your second hand will be correct. Use another clock you know to be accurate as a reference, such as the government clock available online.
  • Step 4 Pull the knob out halfway so you can set the date. Turn it counterclockwise until you notice the date on the watch changing. Stop it and push the knob back in to its starting position once you reach the correct one. Try to set the date before 9 p.m. If you set it after that time, it may not register with your watch that it should switch the date at midnight. If this happens with your watch, just fix it the next day.
  • Step 5 Set the chronograph, or big dial, on your watch. It works like a stopwatch to let you time activities for up to one hour. Push the top button on the side of your watch to start it. Push it again to stop it. Push the bottom button on the side of your watch to reset it.

  • It would certainly help if next time you let us know what kind of watch it is you have, Best of luck.

    My rolex submariner keeps having the wrong date on it. when it turns midnight it stays on the old date and i switch it to the correct one. but when noon rolls around it switches to the day ahead and i once...


    There isn;t any downloadable manuals for Rolex watches, but operation of Rolex is very simple:
    1) when you unscrew the crown, it is in winding position,
    2) when you pull out the crown to the first click, it is in day and date setting position (depending wich way you turn the crown).
    NOTE: to adjust the day or date, previously you have to advance hands forward, passing 12 o'clock (midnight) mark and stop advancing at 4.00 a.m. using the crown in position as described in chapter 3. When done - push the crown fully in, then pull out to the first click and only then adjust the day or date.
    3) when you pull the crown further out to the second click, it is in time setting position.
    To find the daytime or night time on the watch: pull out crown to the second click and advance watch hands forward till you pass the 12 mark on dial. If the date changes as you pass it - it is the night time (midnight). If the date do not change as you pass it - it is the daytime (noon).
    After all settings being done, allways screw the crown back down as it protects the watch from water and moisture.
    Never use watch in sauna- it's not designed for that.
    Do not forget to rate, please.

    Citizen 2100 cant set date


    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.

    Good luck, and a merry Christmas.

    Operating instructions for a replica Rolex oyster perpetual cosmograph daytona watch


    I need to know if this watch is an automatic or quartz (battery-operated) watch. For either watch, your crown screws in clockwise- which, by the way, is on the right hand side of your watch, and looks like a miniature doorknob. Unscrew it COUNTERCLOCKWISE, then, if your watch has a date on the dial (face of watch), your crown will pull out in two different positions. The first position is for your day/date. Forward will either do the day or date and backwards will do the other. DO NOT SET YOUR WATCH BETWEEN 10 O'CLOCK AND 2 O'CLOCK, because it can ruin your watch. The second position (pull out completely) is for setting the time. Go around until the day and date changes so you're sure that you're on a.m. or p.m. and then set accordingly. Push the stem all the way back in - this is your winding mode if you have an automatic. Wind 50 times before use, or else it won't run correctly. Now, push the stem back in (it's spring-loaded), and turn it counterclockwise to seat the tap, then clockwise until it's completely screwed in.

    Changing the date


    It should only go to one direction, you might have a memory with some other watch for going both direction otherwise the way the internal dial works for cartier it should only go to forward, some manufacturer make the dial moving both ways but for quality watches such as cartier it goes only to one direction.
