SOURCE: setting time and date crown positions

Yes, you must unscrew the crown before you wind up or set the watch. Always screw the crown down afterwards this keeps the watch in a water resistant condition.

Watch is missing user guide, how do I set the Honora 3ATM watch


To set a basic wristwatch, simply pull the crown (the winder button at the 3:00 position on 99% of watches) out gently - it will click into adjusting position. Wind to send time and then push back in again.

Variations on this are: If you have a watch with date display, the crown will have 2 positions, the first click will be to set the date and the second click (fully out) is to set time. If you need to adjust the date, I suggest you wind the date to the day before you need and then use the second click to wind the hands to the correct date. This way you will be able to know if you have the hour at a.m or p.m position and avoid it have the date changing during the day instead of at night.

One last variation for wristwatches is a screw down crown. Some water resistant and sports models incorporate an added feature whereby the crown is threaded so it can be tightened down to avoid water entering - the most common place water gets into a watch! If you have one of these, you simply need to screw the crown anticlockwise until it pops out and then refer to the instructions above. Don't forget to push and screw the crown back in clockwise when you are done

Model 2302 how to back up date?


Hi,

You should not be able to unscrew the crown from the stem by turning in either direction. So don't worry about that.

If your watch only has a date then you can "quick" change it by pulling the crown out to the first click and turning the crown. One direction will change the date. If your watch has both day and date then one direction will change the day and the other will change the date.

You will have to go forward counting the date upwards. You won't be able to make it go backward.

Once you have the date set push the crown back in and if it screws down be sure to screw it down so it is sealed.

Hope this helps,
Ken

How do i set date and time


NOTE: NEVER EVER set the date between 7pm and 2am or you will damage the watch!! The crown is screwed down to make it waterproof. Start by unscrewing the crown by turning it counter-clockwise until it pops out slightly. That is position '1' which is used for winding. Pull it out two more clicks to position '3' and set the time by turning the crown clockwise. Turn it past midnight at which point you will see the date change and continue turning till you get to the right time. If you're setting the time to a point after noon, be sure to go all the way past 12 noon before setting the time or the date will change at noon instead of midnight. If the time is before 7pm push the crown in to position '2' and turn it to set the date. When you are finished push the crown all the way in and turn it clockwise to screw it down.

1. Unscrew crown by turning it toward you.
2. Pull the crown out until you hear a click.
3. Turn the crown to set the time as desired.
4. Push in the crown and screw away from you until it is tight.*

How do I set date & time?


usually breitlings have a screw-in crown with a gasket for diving. If you cannot pull the crown away from the case, try unscrewing it. After a little pressure to the left, the crown should begin to turn. Unscrew it carefully and you should be able to pull it out one stop for the date and all the way (note second hand stops) to set the time. Be careful pushing it back in and screwing it back down. You don't want to potentially damage the threads. The crown is back in place when you ca't screw it in any more and the "B" is straight up and down

Rolex oyster perpetual datejust time/date setting instructions


Depending on how old the watch is, It may be quick set or older models are not quick set. In older models you need to unscrew the crown, pull out the crown and rotate the crown to set the time, and in order to set the date rotate the hour hand past 12 twice in order for the date to change. Set the date first and then set the hour and min. For quick set models unscrew the crown and pull it out to the fist click this position you can "quickly" set the date by rotating the crown. Set the date and then pull out the crown to the second position out. Rotate the crown to set the hour and min. Then push the crown back in and screw it down.
