Question about Watches
How is the day and date set on the subject watch? The only way I have discovered to get them to change is to continuously wind the watch through 24 hours. The problem with this is they both change together and it is labourious. There must be a way of setting the day and date separately.
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.

I have a Seiko Diamatic purchased in 1974. While I have not used it for many years, I seem to recall that to change the day and date, you pulled the crown half way out. To change the day, you twisted the crown one direction (not sure if clockwise or anticlockwise) and to change the date, to twisted it in the opposite direction.
Hope this helps.... Regards John T
