Just start working with the buttons on the watch and find the different menus available. You will stumble onto
the time and date function. It will just take a bit of patience but you can do it! It's there, it's like other watches
you've worked with.

These are the instructions for the AD0721. They might apply to your model, too. I hope this helps:

Theanalog setting of the watch takes place by pulling out the knob (kindof tough) and adjusting, like a regular analog watch. The analog anddigital displays are will NOT stay in sync, unfortunately.


1) to turn on/off alarm,
in the normal state (which you can see the seconds step up but not flicker)
hold button D (don't release)and press C

2) to change day of week
in the normal state
press B consecutively 3 times
press button D consecutively 5 times
press button C to set

Hello there, I can help you out with this, but I think you may have the name / type of watch wrong.

Is it an ORIENT watch? I have never seen or heard of Ohlen, and nothing on the entire internet speaks about it...


let me know and I can help you out.

Thanks
Tim

HOW TO SET DAY / DATE ON AN ANALOG (STEM) WATCH


mcdevito75 here, Over Forty (40) years ago, watch manufactures added, to some of their ANALOG (wind up) and almost all of their DIGITAL (button display) watches the FEATURE of the, MONTH or DAY of the WEEK and the DATE, not only was the time of day available but also the DATE which you no longer had to go searching for, it was readily available on your wrist. The PROBLEM came with SETTING the CORRECT MONTH or DAY of the week and the DATE as some MONTHS HAD 31 DAYS rather than 30 DAYS, this meant you had to CYCLE your watch at least 62 times to get to the CORRECT DATE and mant times, when you finally did reach the CORRECT DATE, the day of the week was off, meaning more CYCLES thru the 24 hours.-------- HERE is the EASY way to SET the MONTH or DAY / DATE on your QUARTZ / MECHANICAL (STEM) watch without haveing to go thru the 24 hour cycle so many, many times. Not only is this, WEAR on your fingers, you can also damage your watch with some many cycles of the 24 hours to SET the correct MONTH or DAY / DATE. ------ HERE ARE THE BASICS,---------- Your ANALOG or STEM watch either QUARTZ or MECHANICAL should have a TWO (2) position STEM we are only familiar with the ONE (1) position we use to set the TIME, there should be TWO (2) positions to the STEM. First pull out the STEM to adjust the MONTH or DAY depending on your watches display, if your watch DISPLAYs the DAY of the week, set the DAY to one (1) DAY before the DAY you want, don"t worry about the DATE (number) yet. Once you have the MONTH or DAY set, push the STEM back into the watch, NOW with a finger nail just under the STEM (usually from the back of the stem as there is more room) gently lift the STEM to it"s first position, It may take some practice so be patient, once the STEM is in it"s first position you should be able to turn the STEM to adjust the DATE (number), if so Adust the DATE (number) to ONE (1) DATE before the DATE you want, This way your watch will be adjusted to change the DAY / DATE at the correct time. Once you have the DATE (number) adjusted to ONE (1) DATE before the DATE you want, push the STEM back into the watch, NOW pull the STEM out to adjust the time, go thru the 24 hour cycle to adjust to the correct DAY DATE (number) and time of day.------------ Your QUARTZ or MECHANICAL (stem) watch is now adjusted to the correct DAY / DATE and will change at the correct hour which is generally 12--1 AM.

How to change day and date of fossil me1045


I bought my bf this watch for christmas... i set it before i gave it to him... it is the me1045
It took me forever to figure out how to set it, and even longer to actually set it.
The instructions fossil gives are useless, and the two side buttons do absolutely nothing.

So.. to set the day of the month, you have to spin the knob clockwise for 24 hrs for each day.
So, if it says 2nd, and the date is actually the 4th in the am, you have to spin it 4 times around the face, ie 48 hrs. If you go over, you're screwed and have to go all the way around again which, trust me, takes a really, really long time. Going counter-clockwise will not change the date, only the day.

The day of the week will change with the day of the month. Don't worry; they might not match up at the end. It may be the 4th and say it's monday. That's okay, because, unlike the day of the month, the week days can be turned backwards by turning the dial counter-clockwise.
Remember to take into account whether you are in the AM or PM. PM will require an extra turn beyond when it first switched to the date.

Goodluck; hope this helps.

Setting month, date, and day of the week on non-digital watch


Try pulling the stem out. Turn the stem in the counter clock wise direction and see if that changes the date/day

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!"
