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.

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 adjust day date on older rolex perpetual day date watch

There isn;t any downloadable manuals for Rolex watches, but operation of Rolex Day-Date is very simple:
1) when you unscrew the crown, it is in winding position,
2) when you pull out the crown to the first click, it is in day and date setting position (depending wich way you turn the crown).
NOTE: to adjust the day or date, previously you have to advance hands forward, passing 12 o'clock (midnight) mark and stop advancing at 4.00 a.m. using the crown in position as described in chapter 3. When done - push the crown fully in, then pull out to the first click and only then adjust the day or date.
3) when you pull the crown further out to the second click, it is in time setting position.
To find the daytime or night time on the watch: pull out crown to the second click and advance watch hands forward till you pass the 12 mark on dial. If the date changes as you pass it - it is the night time (midnight). If the date do not change as you pass it - it is the daytime (noon).
After all settings being done, allways screw the crown back down as it protects the watch from water and moisture.
Never use watch in sauna- it's not designed for that.
Do not forget to rate, please.

Alhamdulillah, the problem solved (at last) tks to IRONMAN (

The steps are like this :
1. Pull the crown full, and turn it clockwise until you find the right day.
2. and then push it one click (dont push it to hard so it back to normal position) and turn the crown counter clockwise to adjust date.
3. Push the small button near the crown to adjust month.

and voila... the problem solved

SOURCE: Kenneth Cole Reaction watch date set problem

I just dug my watch out after not wearing for a few years and had the same problem. There is an easy way to adust this watch's time and alarm, basically one way to enter both.

1) With the watch in the regular time display mode (doesn't matter if 12 hour or military time), depress and hold the lower left hand button (mode button). After a few seconds the watch appears to shift to alarm mode and it is blinking. This puts you into the mode for adjusting the alarm.

2) If you want to adjust time, date, etc rather than alarm time, after you have done step one, simply press that same lower left button again, and then it will put you into the time mode, but this time the time mode is blinking and you can adjust the various components (seconds, minutes, hours). You can only move minutes, hours, etc forward, no way to move backward. You will start off with the second display blinking, probably skip that unless you need to adjust seconds. Depress the upper right button to shift to the next option (minutes) and you will see the minute display blinking. Adjust the minutes by depressing the lower right button. When finished depress upper right button to move to next option (hours) depress the lower right button to move the minutes/hours/month/date forward as necessary, when you finish just press the lower left button again and it pulls you out of adjust mode and you are back in regular time viewing.

I had to post this because I've had this problem in the past and it killed me. Its kind of intuititve after you get into the adjusting mode by pressing the lower left button- remember, initially it will put you into adjust alarm mode, but press again and you will get into adjust time mode.

How can I change the day on the watch (timex model T2E581). I am able to change the date and time ok, but not the day. Thanks for the help.

When you pull the stem out all the way (two clicks) it should set the time. Pulling the stem out one click you noticed sets the date, you turn it one way for the date and in the same postion you turn it the other way for the day. For some reason on some watches the day will stick, if that still happens you will need to turn the hands around and around until you get to the right day, then keeping in mind the 12 hour interval you are in... set the date and time. If the day still does not change then you need to return the watch if its new or send it to timex! Caution: when sending a watch to Timex sometimes they send back a different watch without asking so if its sentimental do NOT send it to Timex!! Hope this helps! have a great day!

Hi, My watch is changing date at 12 noon instead

Your watch is 12 hours out of step. (The date changes every second revolution of the hour hand.)

Wind your watch forward 12 hours, (you may have to reset the date) and it will then change around midnight.

I need to change the date on my watch and don't have the instruction manual. Thanks!

mcdevito75 here, Sounds like you have the time set, but the date is a fifferent matter, Here"s what to do, the stem (winder) of your watch has 2 positions, slip a fingernail just under the stem, and gently lift the stem to it;'s first position, this position allows you to change the date without so many cycles of the entire watch, it"s a little tricky but you"ll get used to it. Once you get this first position set the date to 1 day before the date you want, now pull the stem out to set the time of day, go thru 1, 24 hour cycle to set the date you want and time of day. The date is now set and will change on time, approx. Mid nite. Hope this helps.

Some watches will change the day/date starting at 1130pm and not be done changing both until 230am. So yours may be normal for that particular watch. BTW, that is when the date does change to the next day, at 1201am. Hope this helps.

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,

Changing the DAY on this analog watch.

On some analog Timex watches with a day/date window there are only two "pull-out" positions on the stem, one for changing the date and one for the time. To change the day you need to pull the stem all the way out and crank the hands through 24 hour periods until you get the day correct. Be sure that you have the correct AM/PM setting (if you are setting the watch after noon you need to advance the hands another 12 hours so that the day changes at midnight)

Changing the DAY on this analog watch.

Turning it backwards didn't work on my watch. I ended up winding the time ahead several days worth to show the right day of the week (being careful to turn it to the correct 9 o'clock of the day, for me is was the first for morning.) Then I could go ahead and change the date using the first click postition of the stem.

I see that light bulb going off and you whispering "why, of course!"

Change day

The trick is to turn the ring to the "Date" setting, Pull the stem out once for the Month and Date. Pull the stem out (hard, but gently) a second time for the Day of the week. Each pull will be confirmed by a 'beep. Be persistent and good luck.
