Question about Seiko Wrist 5 SNKA03K1 Automatic Mechanical SelfWinding Yellow Dial Date Day Stainless Steel Case Water Resistance Watch for Men

1 Answer

How do you set the day/date on a watch????????

It's a Seiko. It keeps good time but since the first of the month I'v not been able to set the day/date correctly. I've had this watch for years and I've always been able to do it before but now it escapes me. I think I vaguely remember that you have to make the setting at a particular time of day, like early morning or late night or something.

Try this solution I posted earlier for a similar problem.
Put stem into "set hands" position and adjust hands to the 12:00 position. Day and date should advance at or close to that time.
If you pass 12:00 and there's no change continue rotating another 12 hours (to twelve o'clock again) and they should advance. Once you've found that there's midnight.So say it's now 4:00pm you would need to rotate the hands around the dial again so they pass 12:00 once more (12:00 midday) then four hours more to 4:00.
To set the day/date you can set the crown (winder) to the first position (second posn is "set hands) and rotate winder
eithr clockwise or anticlockwise. Once you discover which direction advances the date and day ring just set it to the correct day/language and date you want then press the crown home.
Hope this solves your problem.

How to set day/date on an 1968 DX automatic Seiko watch


Seiko watches from this period should have a setting stem that pull out half-way and fully. Pulling the stem out fully permits you to set the time. Pulling the stem out half-way should let you set the date by moving the crown forward/clockwise and set the day of the week by moving the crown backward/counterclockwise.

However, for this to work correctly, the watch must have the correct set stem. I have worked with a number of watches, including Seikos, where a generic stem was substituted after someone accidentally pulled out the crown and stem (Seiko replacement parts can be tough to find in the U.S., especially for discontinued models). If an incorrect stem has been installed, the day/date setting procedure I've just described may no longer work correctly. At that point, setting the date involves advancing the hands to get to the right date; day of the week may not be able to be set at all.

Good luck!

Hello,

Seiko watches are a popular accessory for both men and women. The history of Seiko watches goes back to 1881 long time ago, when the company that was to become Seiko began. From the beginning, the method to set a Seiko watch has been designed to be a simple process.

The following are the steps to set a Seiko watch for the time, day and date function, and for setting the chronograph on an analog watch.

Set the Time:

  • THE CROWN
Pull the button on the side of the watch carefully, the crown, out to its most extended position. You will need to unlock the crown if your watch has a locking crown. To unlock, turn the crown counter clockwise. While the crown is pulled out in the setting position, the watch will cease functioning.
  • 12 O'CLOCK POSITION
Turn the crown clockwise to move the hands of the watch past the 12 o'clock position on the dial. The day and date will change to indicate AM setting but will not change for PM setting. It is recommended that you set a Seiko watch in the morning for instant day and date setting; however,this can be done manually.
  • FINISH
To finish setting the time, simply push the crown until it is flush with the side of the watch.

Good luck and thanks for using fixya.
