Day not changing on my nixon sentry

When I pull the notch out halfway and turn it clockwise (supposed to change the day of the week), it doesn't change. When I turn it counter-clockwise, the date changes. How do I fix the day of the week issue?

You have to open your watch caseback. Undo the battery holding contact, get the battery out and memorise the writings on the battery. Buy exactly the same one and replace it in the backwards way you took it out.

How do I change date on my Invicta 7352 ?


Usually, after unscrewing a *****-down crown, pulling the stem out one click will allow the date to be advanced by turning the crown in one direction or the other. Depending on the movement, a clockwise turn of the crown may advance the date and the counter clockwise turn might advance the day of the week, for example.

If all else fails, pull the stem out two clicks and advance the watch hands 24 hours for each day you wish to advance the date.

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!

I have Timex SR 920 SW watch, how to adjust the date and day?


Adjust the day of month (1-31) by pulling the crown pin out part way, and turning the pin counter clockwise, incrementing the date arm. Counterclockwise does nothing.

To adjust day of week (Mon-Sun), pull the pin out and rotate to turn minute/hour hands. Each time you pass 12:00, the weekday hand will increment by a half step.

Where do I find a user manual for a Timex Expedition (H2Y518)? I had Timex install a new battery and although the date 3-17 is correct, the day of the week is SUN. I have tried changing the date for over...


You are very observant! Timex watches don't have a way to adjust the day.
However, if you turn the hands clockwise you will see the day advance.
So, heres the secret, follow exactly:
1. Turn the hands until the day of the week shows the day before. If today is Wednesday then turn the hands until the watch shows Tuesday
2 Adjust the date to the day before. If today is the 17th then adjust it to the 16th
3. Now pull the crown all the out and and advance the hands until the date changes to the correct date, 17 in this example. This happens at midnight. Continue the movement in a clockwise direction for a few more hours and you should see the day change to the correct day.
4. Now continue to move in a clockwise direction until you have the current time. Remember that your date/day changed at midnight so if the current time is after lunch(noon) you must continue past noon to get to the correct time. If you don't do this correctly your date will change every day at noon instead of midnight.
If you don't succeed the first time, try, try again! Good luck, Michael, Watchmaker to the Stars!

How change the date


just like what I did a week ago. Since February had only 28 days, I pull it twice and pinch the roller counter-clockwise until the date advances. Make sure your hand is dry so that you can adjust it firmly..

I have a new chronograph Michele watch. How do I change the day of the week without changing the date?


As per the instruction PDF that I just read, the day of the week only changes with each 24 hour rotation. Therefore to change it, you might pull the crown out all the way and wind it through every hour in each day until it advances to the day you want. Then set the correct time. Push the crown in one notch to the second position and wind the dates forward until it stops on the one you want. It doesn't appear that going backwards for either the time (for day of the week) or date works.

How do i set the date on my nixon sentry


The notch has two positions. when you pull it out completely that is the time adjustment. Now when you pull it just slightly that will be the date setting. Turning it clockwise will change the day and counter clock wise changes the date number. Hope that helps.

I got my watch from a third party w/ out manual cause it was cheaper. Took me awhile to figure out.

I purchased a Marco Max watch with day, date and moon phase. How do I set each of the dials to match the correct day of week, month and hour?


The crown has three positions. The A position is when it’s pushed all the way in. You can’t set anything in this position. The C position is when it’s pulled all the way out. The B position is the click between all the way in and all the way out. My biggest problem is that I read the directions to mean that there were FOUR positions. I didn’t realize A was all the way in. I thought there was three pulled out positions.
To set the day of the week (Sun, Mon, etc.): Pull the crown all the way out (position C) and turn the time to just after midnight. The setting will click to the next day. To advance it an additional day, you don’t have to turn the hands another twenty four hours. You can turn the hands backward to before midnight (you will see the day of the week setting click a little, but not go backwards), then turn the hands past midnight again.
I recommend setting the day of the week setting to YESTERDAY. You’ll see why later.
To set the date: 3341598183_60e77d12e5.jpgPull the crown one click out (position B) and turn the crown away from you (clockwise). This will advance the day indicator (it looks like a second hand). To set the month, you have to keep turning until you get past an entire year. There is no separate way to set the month. To make the correct month show, you must keep turning the crown past every day of the year until you get to the correct day.
I recommend setting the date to YESTERDAY. I’ll explain why later.
To set the moon phase: Pull the crown one click out (position B) and turn the crown toward you (counter clockwise). To find out what phase the moon is currently in, here are a couple of websites:
Once again, set it to the moon phase for YESTERDAY.
To set the time: Pull the crown all the way out (position C) and turn the crown either away or towards you to set the time. Keep turning the time away from you (clockwise) until you get past midnight. Once you get past midnight, ALL the settings should change (day of the week, date and moon phase). Now you KNOW you’re on today’s date at just after midnight. Set the correct time and your Luar watch is ready to go!
Review 3342440924_5fa48ca4fe.jpgMany of the Swatch enthusiasts were disappointed that the Luar is a battery powered watch instead of an automatic. With a price tag of approximately $450, it’s a little much to expect an automatic with a real moon phase. I’ve talked at length about what I desire in a watch here:
