Watch date changes between 1:45 am and 2:00 am

Booklet says "Don't change the hour of the day or date during specific hours" PDF download on the site is the wrong information for setting the date! contraidiction? Since Christmas I have had this watch (3 hand watch/No month/Only date) And I have been trying to get the correct time change since december 25th! No help from the company/replies/nothing. Still having problems that no one can explain. All I want is for the date on my watch to slowly start turning to the next day a bit before midnight & it slowly starts turning to the next date at 2 am.i don't know what to do. I'm lost. Does anyone know anything about this or ever even heard of this?

Turn it 12 hours forwards or 12 hours backwards that will correct it to the right date change

    Thank you for your reply. I thought that was what the problem was. I just brought it into 2 different watch stores & they believe that when the watch was assembled the hands were set incorrectly. They said the date on the watch should start to change at around a quarter to 11 & by twelve it will be the correct date. The date on this watch changes exactly 1:47am. Very strange. I called the manufacturer & they said they can replace it. Thank you for trying to help!!!

SOURCE: Watch has correct day and date only 1/2 each day

The watch thinks at Noon it is really midnite, so you must scroll 12 hours ahead to repair this. There are usually 2 "clicks" on the stem of the watch when you pull it out, 1 will set time, 1 will set the day/date, be careful to pay close attention to which is happening when you pull out the stem, and setting should go well after that.

SOURCE: date changes wrong time

thats because analog watches don't know the difference between AM/PM. First reset the time, moving the hour and minute hands another 12 hours will let you know exactly what mode its in (am/pm) first allowing you to set the date correctly.

Read carefully about Radio-controled time keeping and other related chapters.
If after performing all the required operations your watch still does not work properly, you have some kind of fault in the Integrated Circuitboard and will need to seek for watchmakers help- probably an IC replacement.

Mondaine Retro automatic day date are not aligned. Date also skips occasionally


Hello Tom Bott,

The Mondaines I have seen a big, bold,
beautiful watches...
Sorry...!!

If it is INDEED NEW... ("The other week")..

I would take it IMMEDIATELY back & get another.

Day-Date watches can INDEED be damaged by
moving the DAY/DATE inside specific times
around midnight...

Most watches
can handle the ABUSE but some
cannot... (keep in mind it could actually be defective).

The watch will not heal itself... and unless you failed to put the stem/winder all the way home... SOMETHING is tragically WRONG with your watch.

My BEST ADVICE... exchange it (now).

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.

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.
