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.

The watch thinks at Noon it is really midnite, so you must scroll 12 hours ahead to repair this. There are usually 2 "clicks" on the stem of the watch when you pull it out, 1 will set time, 1 will set the day/date, be careful to pay close attention to which is happening when you pull out the stem, and setting should go well after that.

SOURCE: HOW TO CHANGE DATE
I have an old analog quartz Timex watch with a mechanical day and date display. The stem pulls out to only one position which moves the hands. As the hands are rotated past the midnight (not noon) position the date changes first and then the day.
The simplest way I found to adjust both the day and date is to advance the hands forward through the midnight positions until you reach the desired day. As soon as the day clicks into the desired position back up the hands through the midnight position to about the 10 pm position. This resets the mechanism to set the day/date. Then advance the hands towards the midnight position carefully until the date changes and before the day changes. Again back up the hands through midnight until about 10 pm and then forward to advance the date, stopping before the day changes. Repeat the last two steps until you get the correct date. Then rotate the hands back to the correct time, if it's a morning time be sure to rotate all the way back through 12 noon to the correct time. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: HOW TO CHANGE DATE
The Skagen watches have two-step stem; fully pulled out will change the time and partially pulled out will change the date (only goes one way so try turning it counter-clockwise or clockwise - I forget which is correct). It's easier to find the date length by extending it all the way and then go back toward the case. It won't change the date if you run it through a 24-hour cycle - you have to do the half-way thing. Hope this helps.
