If the movement is broken, you can play around yourself; but you will need very fine tools. May be complex. Send an email to Citizen, they are very supportive. Look for detail tech manuals for all types here: http://www.citizenwatch.com/downloads/tech/tech.htm

SOURCE: I cannot set the date on my Citizen SkyHawk Eco-Drive

The watch will automatically set the time and date when it is in receive mode (Mode hand is on CAL, TME, RXS) Pull crown out 1 click, turn crown to put mode hand in the ORANGE zone. push crown in. Set on stable surface with the 9:00 position facing the direction of the atomic clock signal. Push and hold lower button for 2 seconds till it beeps. it will enter RECEIVE mode and in 2 -15 minutes it will (if there is signal) update time and date automatically. While in RX mode the lcd windows will flash between RC & RX, the second hand should show signal level between 1 & 3 hr positions.
Do NOT move the watch until it has resumed the one second sweep motion and made a beep.

I bought this watch citizen BL5334-04E year ago,


Mechanically operated date changes occur at 12 O'clock. If your watch thinks it is midnight when it is noon then it will change date.

The solution is to wind your watch on 12 hours.

Date problem in Citizen Eco drive JR3080


My watch is experiencing the same problem. I just found out the following on Citizen's website:
"The factory has discovered a software anomaly in the calendar programming of the integrated circuit that affects some Skyhawk AT and other styles utilizing the U600 movement caliber produced in only 2007 for those watches receiving either the U.S. or Japanese time signals. Those customers receiving the German time signals or have pieces manufactured in other years are not affected. This anomaly results in the calendar displaying dates from 2016 even though the year is 2010."
It goes on to say that the watch needs to be sent in for a software update. Below is a link to the FAQ topic:

How to change the date and week?


1. Pull the crown out one click.
A. Turn dial until function hand rests on "CAL"
2. Pull dial out one more click (should be all the way out)
A. hold down button "A" (top button) until the second hand completes one counter clockwise rotation (should be pointing at current month)
B. Press "A" button a second time and the Day/Leap year hand will move.
3. At this point spin the crown either backwards or forwards and watch as the Day/Leap year hand spins clockwise or counter-clockwise. The Date will adjust per each revolution.

Hope this helps as it took me using the correct movement number on the url in the previous post (for Calibre 8700 the movement number is "E870").
