I just dug my watch out after not wearing for a few years and had the same problem. There is an easy way to adust this watch's time and alarm, basically one way to enter both.
1) With the watch in the regular time display mode (doesn't matter if 12 hour or military time), depress and hold the lower left hand button (mode button). After a few seconds the watch appears to shift to alarm mode and it is blinking. This puts you into the mode for adjusting the alarm.
2) If you want to adjust time, date, etc rather than alarm time, after you have done step one, simply press that same lower left button again, and then it will put you into the time mode, but this time the time mode is blinking and you can adjust the various components (seconds, minutes, hours). You can only move minutes, hours, etc forward, no way to move backward. You will start off with the second display blinking, probably skip that unless you need to adjust seconds. Depress the upper right button to shift to the next option (minutes) and you will see the minute display blinking. Adjust the minutes by depressing the lower right button. When finished depress upper right button to move to next option (hours) depress the lower right button to move the minutes/hours/month/date forward as necessary, when you finish just press the lower left button again and it pulls you out of adjust mode and you are back in regular time viewing.
I had to post this because I've had this problem in the past and it killed me. Its kind of intuititve after you get into the adjusting mode by pressing the lower left button- remember, initially it will put you into adjust alarm mode, but press again and you will get into adjust time mode.

SOURCE: HOW TO CHANGE DATE
The Skagen watches have two-step stem; fully pulled out will change the time and partially pulled out will change the date (only goes one way so try turning it counter-clockwise or clockwise - I forget which is correct). It's easier to find the date length by extending it all the way and then go back toward the case. It won't change the date if you run it through a 24-hour cycle - you have to do the half-way thing. Hope this helps.

There isn;t any downloadable manuals for Rolex watches, but operation of Rolex Day-Date is very simple:
1) when you unscrew the crown, it is in winding position,
2) when you pull out the crown to the first click, it is in day and date setting position (depending wich way you turn the crown).
NOTE: to adjust the day or date, previously you have to advance hands forward, passing 12 o'clock (midnight) mark and stop advancing at 4.00 a.m. using the crown in position as described in chapter 3. When done - push the crown fully in, then pull out to the first click and only then adjust the day or date.
3) when you pull the crown further out to the second click, it is in time setting position.
To find the daytime or night time on the watch: pull out crown to the second click and advance watch hands forward till you pass the 12 mark on dial. If the date changes as you pass it - it is the night time (midnight). If the date do not change as you pass it - it is the daytime (noon).
After all settings being done, allways screw the crown back down as it protects the watch from water and moisture.
Never use watch in sauna- it's not designed for that.
Do not forget to rate, please.

If you pull out crown carefuly, you will notice there are two clicks. The first one is for adjusting calendar (day or/and date). Next one is for moving hands. Pull out to the first click and adjust the date by turning the crown.
Rate me, please.

SOURCE: 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").
