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