Re: changing the date

It should only go to one direction, you might have a memory with some other watch for going both direction otherwise the way the internal dial works for cartier it should only go to forward, some manufacturer make the dial moving both ways but for quality watches such as cartier it goes only to one direction.

I can't set the date on my watch - right now I have to scroll through the time setting mechanism hour by hour and day by day?

The date changes around midnight and you can usually advance the date by going past midnight until the date changes and then turning the watch backward to a time shortly before midnight and then winding it forward again.

How far back you need to go you will have to find by experiment but it should not be very far.

My Emporio Armani 5330 has a problem in that the date advances at noon instead of at midnight so the 24 hour indicator on the bottom of the face is not in sync. How do I correct this?

Simply advance hands 12 hours forwards (clockwise). Just pull out crown to the time setting position and turn the watch hands forwards if the date is changing before midnight. If the date is changing after midnight - turn the hands 12 hours backwards. Don't do this when the actual time is between 10pm - 2am.

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 change the datewithout keep winding it

Your watch sounds like a mechanical type (old).

Older watches rely on the hour hand passing 12 to re-set the date.

Wind your watch until the date changes and then turn the hands backwards passed 12 and then forwards again to advance the date again.

How far you need to wind it passed 12 (in both directions) is something that you will have to find out by

Model 2302 how to back up date?


You should not be able to unscrew the crown from the stem by turning in either direction. So don't worry about that.

If your watch only has a date then you can "quick" change it by pulling the crown out to the first click and turning the crown. One direction will change the date. If your watch has both day and date then one direction will change the day and the other will change the date.

You will have to go forward counting the date upwards. You won't be able to make it go backward.

Once you have the date set push the crown back in and if it screws down be sure to screw it down so it is sealed.

Hope this helps,

Set day of month

The day is changed when the watch passes midnight or thereabouts. Turn the winder until the date changes and then turn it backwards until it is past the date changing point and wind it forwards.

You will have to experiment to find how far back you need to turn it before going forwards again.

Should you be able to advance the date complication with the stem on an Ebel Brasilia (quartz)? i have to wide my watch 24 hours to advance the date, that just doesn't seem right...

Watches change their date at midnight (ish), so when the date has changed,to advance the date another day, wind the hands backward past midnight and then forward again.

How much further back you have to wind the hands will have to be found by experiment.

Good luck!

How to set the year for armani meccanico watch AR4218?

The Armani site is not very helpful but try this one:-

The year should change when the month hand passes from December to January.

If you pull out the winder (it may need to be screwed out anticlockwise first), you should be able to find a position where the month can be changed. Wind the month hand passed December. If you need to advance it more than one year, then wind it backwards from January to December and then forwards again to January.
