Re: what is the function of the winder on left hand side...
The crown on the left side is HELIUM VALVE and is designed for
compensating and keeping the right air pressure inside watch case if it
is used for diving purposes.
If you will try to set something using this crown, nothing will happen,
as it has special springs, gaskets and bars built into it, but has no
any connection with watch movement.

The crown ( the winder as used to be) will pull out one ,two, or three stops. Each stop does somthing different.e.g. 1 - hands, 2 - day, 3 - date. Sometimes, the second stop will do two functions - turn one way for day and the other for date.
Press the button on the lower right side of your Indiglo watch to unlock the mode function of the watch.
Press the button on the lower left side to move through the modes. Each time you are in a mode, the digital display will flash. For example, when the time display begins to flash, you are in the correct mode to set the time.
Change the time (or date) by pressing the button on the upper right side to advance the numbers or the button on the left side to move the numbers down. When you do this, you will be changing the first set of numbers (the hour or month, for instance); to change the minutes, press the button on the right side of the face until the second set of numbers is flashing and begin the process again.
Press the button on the lower left side of the watch to save your settings. The button on the upper left side of the watch is not used in this process--it is the switch to turn on your Indiglo light.
Unscrew crown pullout 2 stepsturn hands around till the date changes .this will indicate to you it is midnight .turn ands around to right time.if you are setting this in the afternoon remember to go past the 12.When this is done push winder in 1 step and turn winder clockwise or anti cclocwise and this will let you set day or date. When you finish push winder back in and lock down.
mcdevito75 here, If your Timex is digital (has buttons) press the MODE button once, see the screen flashing, then press set as you set each function press MODE to move to the next function, when done press MODE again for steady screen. If your Timex has a stem (winder) slip your fingernail just under the stem and lift it to it"s first notch or position, this will allow you to change the date without haveing to turn the hands so many times.
The usual way to adjust time and date is to screw out (not pull) the winder and rotate it backwards or forwards. The winder will have two "out"positions, one for the date and the other for the time. (the "screw" for the winder is to improve water resistance).
If you have already tried this and it does not work, then go to the Tissot web site "tissot.com", locate your nearest dealer and ask for advice.
Alternatively on the Tissot site find your watch under the heading "sport". To view all the watches in a section move your cursor along the dots, this moves the images along to find the one you want.
Select the PRC100 and details of your watch appear and at the bottom of the menu on the left hand side select "user manuals".
Click on "download" on the right and instructions will appear

I have a Theorema Parago Automatic through not wearing it regularly it sometimes stops. Winding it wouldn't solve the problem and I couldn't find a solution either on the Theorema site or online so through a series of self help efforts the following is the solution for this watch 1 Set the watch to the correct time date day etc. 2 Wind the watch using the side winder for about 40 revolutions in clockwise rotation 3 Hold the watch in your right and strike it firmly into the stiff palm of your left hand. This gives the winding mechanism a shark shock and kicks it back into life.The watch then works away without a problem.
Yes that is ok its right by pulling the crown winder in the mid level or half level,that is for calendar date.To check if function is ok or broken,just pull full the crown and set the time,see if the calendar date is changing or moving.Then if moving then its ok,the next step you do set is the calendar date,by pulling the crown half pull,then turn the crown counterclockwise for date and for the day turn clockwise.Feel free to post whatever the result of the setting...
I've just worked it out! Change month....depress inset button on side above hand winder. One push with cocktail stick or similar will advance month. Change date.....pull out hand winder half way, turn knob anti-clockwise until desired number is met. Change day...... pull out hand winder fully, turn clockwise passing midnight repeatedly until day is set, continue to set time, keeping an eye on 24 hour display for am/pm.
All the best, Bob
