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.
Pull the crown half way out to set the date. To set the day, keep advancing the time - 24 hours for each day. The day will change at midnight each 24 hours. It's a time consuming but one-time-only effort as long as the battery is good.
Most watches have a stem that you pull out to set the time. The little knob on the end of the stem is called a crown. For a day/date watch, there are two clicks. The first click when you pull out the stem is the day / date setting, the second click sets the time.
When you are on the first click, twisting the crown one direction changes the day of the week; twisting the other direction changes the date. If yours has only the date, it could be either direction depending on the manufacturer.
Plain and simple, It is in need of a service. My recommendation is to take it to an independent watch marker. My watchmaker is $125 for a full service and has a 2 day turn around time. VS Rolex is $550 plus and who knows how long.
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.
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
I have a Seiko Diamatic 780632. To set the day and date, pull the crown once and wind it upwards (away from you) to set the date; winding it downwards (towards you) will set the day. To set the time, you have to pull the crown twice and wind it towards you.
