You have the watch set so that midnight is showing as noon. Advance the watch 12 hours and then reset the date to the proper setting.

The date on my Tissot PRC 100 changes either 1/2 day early or 1/2 day late. How can it be set so that the date changes at 12:00 am?


Your watch is 12 hours out, as it "thinks" that midnight is midday.

The solution is to wind your watch forward 12 hours and then the date will change at midnight.

I Have a fossil 10 atm watch & the date doesn't change automatically so i change it manually but then half way thought the day it changes the date


Your watch is 12 hours out of step.

The date changes every second time the hour hand passes 12 O'clock.

Your watches' second pass is at midday instead of midnight, so to make it operate correctly, you need to wind it on 12 hours. The date will then change at midnight.

Hi, My watch is changing date at 12 noon instead


Your watch is 12 hours out of step. (The date changes every second revolution of the hour hand.)

Wind your watch forward 12 hours, (you may have to reset the date) and it will then change around midnight.

My watch keeps changing the date at 12:00 noon to the next day. How to I get it to go back to changing the date at midnight? Thanks.


I haven't been able to find your watch on their web site but it sounds as though your watch is a mechanical (automatic?), if this is the case.....

The watch thinks it is midnight at midday, so wind the watch forward 12 hours.

How do i change date on longines oposition l3.618.4.52.6


Changing the date on the Oposition is done by pulling out the crown to the first stop (pulling out to the second stop sets the time). Turn the crown clock-wise/counter-clockwise to change the date.

Day date changes midday 12:00 PM, not midnight 12:00 AM. How to change this?


Your watch thinks your noon is midnight.

Wind the hands forward 12 hours and the date change will be at midnight. You will have to re-set the date if it gains a day when doing this.

How do i set an older longines automatic admiral watch to the correct date and day


You can get instructions from their web site but if your watch is really old, then it seems unlikely that any of the instructions there are for your watch.

However, since watches tend to have similar features (although not the modern electronic types), a basic modern watch probably operate in the same manner.

Go to "www.longines.com/watches/instructions" and have a look at the range of instructions there to see if they are any help.

If nothing useful is found look at the "official retailers" to see if there is a local shop that can help you.

How do i change the date on a 1960's longines Admiral?


If you pull out crown gently, you will notice there are two clicks (positions), not just one. So the first click, when crown is not pulled out fully, is exactly for day/date adjustment. If you pull the crown further out, watch is in hand adjustment mode. Try it carefully and you will find out the right position.
