SOURCE: Seiko Diamatic Day Date Automatic Watch No: 219050

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.

SOURCE: Watch has correct day and date only 1/2 each day

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.

Why does the date on my seiko sne881 change at 12 noon?


probably because you have it set to 12 pm midnight and not 12 noon so at 12 noon it is actually midnight when the date will change
reset the time of the day to am or pm and any pm settings will change the date at 12 midnight.

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.

How make the hour(time )setting


Both the time and the date are set via the winding stem. To set the date, pull out the stem to the first "click" and than turn it and watch as the numbers change. To set the time, pull out to the second "click" and then turn to set the time. Some watches have a screw-down stem crown. If yours does, simply unscrew it by rotating in a counter-clockwise direction until it releases and pops out slightly.

If your watch has a day calendar function it is important to not attempt to set the hour or change the date if the current reading is between 10 PM and 2 AM. If you do, there may be some damage to the advance function responsible for moving the calendar.

The easiest way to set the time and day is to advance the date to the day before the current one. Then pull out the stem and advance the hours until the date clicks over. That is midnight and as long as the current time isn't between 10 PM and 2 AM, you're good to go.

The date adjusts at 1am. any solution? thanks


mcdevito75 here, That sounds about right, each watch is slightly different, some watches, have the date change at 10:30 PM and some at 11:00 PM, and if your Tag also has the month or day to change along with the date, this could account for the date changeing kind of late. I don"t think it"s anything to worry about.

Setting day and date - the day and date change at the wrong tome of day


To sync the correct 12 hour with your day you need to set the date to the day before (if today is Wed 21, then make sure the day window reads Tues 20). Then spin the analog hands until the the date window turns to Wed 21. At this point your watch is reading 12 AM (midnight). Then keep turning to set the correct time. If it is 9 am then stop the hands the first time you hit the 9 marker. If it is 9pm, then keep turning until the SECOND TIME your hour hand meets the 9 marker. This is now set for 9 pm. The day (Mon thru Sun) sometimes needs to be set seperately from the day; it may take a couple of tries but use the directions above and patience and you will achieve your goal.
That's how you do it. If you need more clarification let me know.

Date changes wrong time


thats because analog watches don't know the difference between AM/PM. First reset the time, moving the hour and minute hands another 12 hours will let you know exactly what mode its in (am/pm) first allowing you to set the date correctly.
