turn hands clockwise untill date changes than back up about half an hour and go forward again some let you bump one day at a time faster that way, some just require turning the stem counter clockwise when pulled out.

To change the date on the Edifice Casio wristwatch pull out the knob to set time only half way - not fully otherwise you can change the time only. Then rotate the knob ANTI clockwise until you reach the desired date and push back the knob fully to return to normal

How to uncrew crown knob WAF1417.BA0823


I have owned two Tag dive watches. They both have issues with the stem. You have to press it in very hard, then turn it counter clock wise tll it pops out, then you can set the time, which needs to be done (at least on these two) on months with different # days. If the stem won't move, place a few drops of "3 in1" oil, or even olive oil on it, give it a few minutes, dry off the outside, then try again - it always works for me. When pushing it back in, turn it clockwise. The next time you set the time, it'll be ++ easier.

My DZ4067 functions in the non-English day of the week for 21 hours a day now. How do I change it back so the the day of the week is in English for 21 hours a day?


The "day of the week" wheel on your watch actually has 2 settings on it--one for English, one for another language (often French, but could also be Russian, Japanese, Korean, or any other language, depending on the intended distribution of the watch). You'll need to shift the day track over by "half a notch," so to speak, to get things back in alignment.

The crown you use to set your watch can be pulled out into 2 positions. If you pull it all the way out, you set the time. If you pull it half-way out, you can set the day and date. If you turn the crown clockwise, you advance the date. If you turn the crown counter-clockwise, you should be able to change the day of the week. However, instead of turning the day back a full day, stop when you get a day with the correct language on it. At this point, pull the crown out all the way and manually advance the time 12 or 24 hours until the day and date advance as they would when the watch is running. This is to check that you've correctly gotten the day track correctly oriented. You may have to repeat this process a second time to get it right.


Once you have the day back on track, adjust the date and time, and you should be good to go.

Diesel's own directions, which can be found here: http://store.dieseltimeframes.com/common/images/customercare/instructions/ENGLISH/Diesel_Core-Inst_ENG.pdf are pretty cryptic, but they do have a diagram that might help a little bit. You'll want to look at the section for "Day/Date Watch IS02, 507.2-3, 517.2, 2105, 2305, 2405"

Good luck!

How can I ajust date (day and month)? AR0709


Usually to change the date and time with a watch you pull the knob out on the side half-way instead of the entire way. When it's pulled out half-way, that should let you turn it to change the date and time.

I cannot set the day on my new Timex indiglo watch. i can change the time and date, but the day will not budge. bobdar@att.net


Pull the knob all the way out, then spin the time either forward or back enough hours to reach the correct day. Then push the knob half way in, and reset to the correct date.

How do I set the date


The knob on the center/right "unscrews" if you turn it counter clockwise. This will allow you to pull it outward: Do so one click's worth. Then turn the knob in reverse. This advances the days one at a time. Push back in and screw knob back in until snug.

How to change day and date of fossil me1045


I bought my bf this watch for christmas... i set it before i gave it to him... it is the me1045
It took me forever to figure out how to set it, and even longer to actually set it.
The instructions fossil gives are useless, and the two side buttons do absolutely nothing.

So.. to set the day of the month, you have to spin the knob clockwise for 24 hrs for each day.
So, if it says 2nd, and the date is actually the 4th in the am, you have to spin it 4 times around the face, ie 48 hrs. If you go over, you're screwed and have to go all the way around again which, trust me, takes a really, really long time. Going counter-clockwise will not change the date, only the day.

The day of the week will change with the day of the month. Don't worry; they might not match up at the end. It may be the 4th and say it's monday. That's okay, because, unlike the day of the month, the week days can be turned backwards by turning the dial counter-clockwise.
Remember to take into account whether you are in the AM or PM. PM will require an extra turn beyond when it first switched to the date.

Goodluck; hope this helps.

(I'm dutch, so I'll try in my best englisch)

I don't know if you still have the problem, but what you should do is te following:

* pull out the knob (2 times) and turn anti-clockwise to change the time
* keep doing until it's 24.00 (midnight) and you day change's to the UK (!) day.
* push back the knob (1 time) and change the day to the FRANCE (!) day by turning anti-clockwise
* pull out the knob again and turn anti-clockwise to change the time until 03:00 (midnight)
* you see the then change the day back to the UK day

So, every night at 00:00 the day changes to the FRANCE notation and at 03:00 it then changes to the UK notation, so you can enjoy this setting during the day.

Good Luck.

Adjust the date and day on a festina 3 dial watch


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
