If just time is off by one to three hour(s) , you need to ck your time zone settings , if the day is off by one day you need to wait 24hrs keeping watch in a good view of the sky (not locked in a metal box) it should auto correct itself to proper day when it receives the radio signal for two time cycles (24hrs)

How do I change date on my Invicta 7352 ?


Usually, after unscrewing a *****-down crown, pulling the stem out one click will allow the date to be advanced by turning the crown in one direction or the other. Depending on the movement, a clockwise turn of the crown may advance the date and the counter clockwise turn might advance the day of the week, for example.

If all else fails, pull the stem out two clicks and advance the watch hands 24 hours for each day you wish to advance the date.

Where do I find a user manual for a Timex Expedition (H2Y518)? I had Timex install a new battery and although the date 3-17 is correct, the day of the week is SUN. I have tried changing the date for over...


You are very observant! Timex watches don't have a way to adjust the day.
However, if you turn the hands clockwise you will see the day advance.
So, heres the secret, follow exactly:
1. Turn the hands until the day of the week shows the day before. If today is Wednesday then turn the hands until the watch shows Tuesday
2 Adjust the date to the day before. If today is the 17th then adjust it to the 16th
3. Now pull the crown all the out and and advance the hands until the date changes to the correct date, 17 in this example. This happens at midnight. Continue the movement in a clockwise direction for a few more hours and you should see the day change to the correct day.
4. Now continue to move in a clockwise direction until you have the current time. Remember that your date/day changed at midnight so if the current time is after lunch(noon) you must continue past noon to get to the correct time. If you don't do this correctly your date will change every day at noon instead of midnight.
If you don't succeed the first time, try, try again! Good luck, Michael, Watchmaker to the Stars!

Hi, My watch shows the day as i 1day in advance.For example if today is Monday it will show Tuesday. Though i can change teh time and date but not able to change the Day of the week. Cananyone...


THE SETTING FOR THE DAYS ARE AUTOMATIC DEPENDING ON THE YEAR YOU FEED. IT MAY SOUND ODD BUT PLEASE CHECK THE YEAR YOU ARE FEEDING I.E IS IT 2010 OR 2011. IF IT IS 2011 THE DAYS WILL BE ONE DAY ADVANCED. IF STILL THE PROBLEM PERSISTS ASK THE RETAILER /COMPANY TO REPLACE THE WATCH, IF IT IS UNDER WARRANTY PERIOD.

Pulsar watch, how do you set the day of the week and month?


mcdevito75 here, The stem has 2 positions, first adjust the day or month by going thru the 24 hour cycle with the stem. once set, slip a finger nail just ubder the stem and lift carefully this should allow you to change the DATE adjust to 1 date before the date you need, now pull the stem out to adjust date and time of day turn sten the complete 24 hour cycle to achieve the correct date and time of day. Now your watches day and date are set and will change to the next day date on time, around Mid nite 1 --2 AM.

I cant set the day its always monday here in my watch


I believe that you have to keep turning the time forward until the correct day comes up, Given that, I suggest that you wait until Tuesday so you'll only have to go through 24 hours of time before your day clicks from Monday to Tuesday.

How do i set the day of the week on my Invicta subaqua noma 6125?


For Invicta chronographs to set the day you need to pull the crown out to position 3 (2nd click after releasing the crown/ furthest crown position/ same position to adjust time). You can only set the day by rotating the crown clockwise. Every 24 hours of clockwise rotation will move the day indicator forward 1 position (Mon>Tue, Tue>Wed, etc). If your watch is set one day ahead of the correct day (Its Tuesday but the watch displays Wednesday for example) you will need to rotate the crown clockwise through the entire remainder of the week in order to get to the correct day, you CANNOT rotate the crown counter-clockwise in order to move the indicator back a day.
