Day is wrong, while date is correct


The date and actual name of the day are set separately on most watches. When you are in the mode to change your date, play around with the buttons and try to find a way to toggle to the days so that you can change it to the correct date. What kind of watch is it and I may be able to help. If you still have your owners manual it should say right in there exactly how to do it. If not you can search for it online if you know what kind of watch you have.

Date changes at mid day not at mid night.


Your watch is 12 hours out of step.The date changes ever second rotation of the hour hand.

If you advance the time 12 hours, the date will change at midnight.

You may have to re-set the date.

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!

I have a Tissot Automatic PR 516 from the early 70s. Time is kept well. Date moves forward correctly but it is the wrong date. I am unable to turn back the date. I am able to turn back the day. Any...


The crown wheel (winder) should have 3 positions, (1) the normal winding position (3) fully out; at this position the watch stops and the time can be adjusted.

(2) This position is between the 1 & 2 and is used to adjust the day and date. If you wish to change the date by winding the crown backwards or forwards.

Since watches can very a little, if turning the crown when in position 2 the date does not change, pull the crown to position 3 and turn the hands until you pass the midnight position, when the date will change and then re-set the time. If you wish to advance the time more than one day, when it changes, wind the crown backwards past the midnight position and then wind it forwards again. Repeat until the correct date is showing and then re-set the time. The exact distance you need to turn the crown to change the date will have to be found by experimenting!

How do i adjust the date on my classic watch?? pull the pin and rotate cw or ccw no changes.i have an indigo classic watch. does date need to be adjusted every 30 day months? thanks


You have to adjust the date every February (28 or 29 days), April, June, September and November (each 30 days). Self adjusting calendars are called Perpetual Calendars and this feature is quite expensive, especially in mechanical watches. Your watch has calendar ring with 31 days printed on and the simple calendar mechanism which is changing dates from 1 to 31 inclusive,day after day, so, when the 30-day month is ending and there is no 31st date to follow, your calendar is showing 31st anyway,instead of 1st of the next month. This is when you have to adjust date. Now about the date adjusting. If you pull out crown gently, you will notice there are two clicks (positions), not just one. So the first click, when crown is not pulled out fully, is exactly for day/date adjustment. If you pull the crown further out, watch is in hand adjustment mode. Try it carefully and you will find out the right position.
Rate me, please.

My Casio Edifice watch changes the day at 12:00 and not at 00:00 as it should. Can it be fixed?


If your watch is changing date before midnight (12 hours earlier as it should) - Pull out crown and turn watch hands clockwise for exactly 12 hours and push crown back. If it changes the date after midnight (12 hours later as it should) - Pull out crown and turn watch hands anti-clockwise for exactly 12 hours and push crown back. Don't do it from 00:00 till 04:00.

Date function notworking properly


Do as follows:
1) At any time of the day pull the crown out and advance watch hands forward for EXACTLY 12 hours ( for example: if it's 6.35 on your watch, then after advancing hands it will be 6.35 again, just minute hand will be forwarded clockwise 12 full circles, while hour hand will be forwarded 1 full circle). Push the crown back in.
2) Pull the crown out to the date setting position and change to the desired date. Pull the crown back in.
Now your watch will be changing dates at midnight continuosly.

Rate me, please.
