Re: setting the perpetual callender 8700

The year is now 2008 a leap year. You should set the watch to leap year.

How do you know witch setting to make on the leap year adjustment on the Citizen Calibre 8700 model. +1, +2, +3...?

On Leap Years, the function dial is to be set to '0'.
Add one for each year after...
So, for 2011, set the function dial to '3' since it has been 3 years since 2008, the last leap year. Next year it should move/be set to '0' again since 2012 is a leap year.

I have an Citizen Eco Drive Perpetual wrist watch / calibre 8700. I can't adjust to the right date/month. please help.

This will likely require you taking the back off, removing the battery, reinserting, and then shorting the battery and AC. You will also need to look up the manuel online from Citizen's website, or go to a jeweler to have them reset your perpetual calender.

You should be able to pull the crown out 1/2 way and turn the crown clock-wise and you should hear a click and the calender should move one day. Don't change when the hands when the time is between 10 and 2 , just manually move the hands past that time , and re-set afterwards. If that dosn't work let me know ,.There are other types of those watches , but the way I told you is the most common.
