Just bought a used 37MM Cartier Pasha watch. Have no instructions on how to set time. When I unscrew the crown a little and try to pull the screw under-neath up it won't move. I'm afraid to tug too hard because I'm not sure this
is what I should be doing. Help!!!!

Re: Setting time and date on my Cartier Pasha watch.
Do not be so afraid. Unscrew that big crown fully, pull off and then you will see the real setting crown(quite small one), called an underlayed crown. That little chain is hard enough to withstand your pulls, unless you are drunk. :))) When you get that small crown handy- you can set the time and all the features. If the small crown is not moving, your watch is rusty and you will need a proper watchmakers help. Don't forget to rate, please.

Could not find a download for instructions on this watch, but I did manage to find some basic instructions for the Sector brand. I hope this helps as this is the best I can come up with.
Sector Chronograph Watch Instructions
Most chronograph watches have screw-down crowns for water resistance. You must unscrew the watch crown before you can make any changes to the watch time. After time is set screw the crown back in. To utilize the chronograph dials, use the buttons on the side of the watch. One button will be for the second timer. Press once for the second hand to start timing. Press again to stop it. Another button will be to reset the second hand timer back to zero. Sector Chronograph watches may have different dial functions (see link in References).
Sector Dual-Time Watch Instructions
Because Sector watches are known for their sports capabilities, the Dual-Time watches have screw-down crowns. For Dual-Time timepieces, unscrew the crown counterclockwise. Pull the crown to middle position to set the date. Pull the crown out to its fully extended position and rotate it to set the day of the week, hour and time. Press and hold in the crown and turn clockwise to seal the crown back in to the watch.
Sector Ana-Digi Watch Instructions
Sector Ana-Digi timepieces have analog hands plus digital timekeeping functionality. To set the time, unscrew the crown counterclockwise and then clockwise to the appropriate time. The digital functionalities are programmed by the buttons on the side of the case. Depending on the style of the Sector watch, you can set the digital time with one button, set the date display, 1/100 seconds chronograph timer, altimeter, thermometer and alarm functions.
mcdevito75 here, BEST BET, look for a small watch repair shop in your area for this screw, anyone would have to have the watch with them for the proper screw, and you may have to have this screw ordered from Cartier.
no because your watch has a eta movement made by the swatch company cartier buy the movement from eta then decorate it and sign the rota with there logo the movement could be 2yrs old before cartier get the watch to retail...ie. sat in the shop window. only cartier could tell you when your watch was manufactured..the srial numbers you provide identify what the movement is using cartiers own code to identify the movement and one is for the the model ie. seatimer..
usually breitlings have a screw-in crown with a gasket for diving. If you cannot pull the crown away from the case, try unscrewing it. After a little pressure to the left, the crown should begin to turn. Unscrew it carefully and you should be able to pull it out one stop for the date and all the way (note second hand stops) to set the time. Be careful pushing it back in and screwing it back down. You don't want to potentially damage the threads. The crown is back in place when you ca't screw it in any more and the "B" is straight up and down
Probably your watch has a screwdown crown and prior to attempt any
settings you have to unscrew it. Some peoples fingers are stronger then
others, so, try that with a pair of plyers. Cover your crown with a
soft cloth and then grip with plyers(this will avoid any damage).
Thread is right handed and unscrewing is done by turning the crown
anticlockwise. After setting the time don't forget to screw the crown back- it is for water resistance. If you are unable to unscrew the crown, that means your watch is rusty and you will need watchmakers help. PS
If the watch is rusty, you can brake the crown off while trying to
unscrew it. Don't panic yet, as in this case you will need a watchmaker
anyway. Don't forget to rate, please.
To set the time pull the crown out to the first position and set the time by turning the crown. Pull the crown out to the second position to set the date. Since this is a diver model you will need to unscrew the crown before it will pull out. Make sure you replace the crown and screw it back down for a good protective seal.
The alarm sets the same way. Unscrew the button to set.
To set time, you need to unscrew crown anti-clockwise direction if you have a
screw-in crown watch. You need to softly and slowly pull the crown out a little
bit. The best way to do this is to use first and second finger and use finger
knuckle as a lever in order to pull the crown out with as little force as
possible. You can feel a little "click"! Now you can set the time by turning it
anti-clockwise. This would turn the minute-hour hands forward until you set the
right time. When time is set, push the button back and screw the crown clockwise
for a few rounds to ensure it is screwed back tight.
twist the crown forward hard and fast for a few seconds. The minute hand will start advancing very quickly.
when the desired date and time is reached, push the crown back in place. If you missed the time, pull the crown back out and twist backwards. The minute hand will move slowly in reverse. If you twist hard and fast, the minute hand will start spinning in reverse again.
