SOURCE: Can't set day of the week for armitron MD06117 mens watch

Purchased my Armitron men's digtal watch in 2009. Here's the twist on setting the name of the Day of the Week on my watch. When you get to the name of the Day of the Week flashing.. you don't get Su...Mo...Tu... You get 01..02..03... up through 99. (You think.. what the hell is this??) DON'T TRY TO SET Sun.. Mon.. etc here.. you won't find it. The puzzle solver..and it is.. IS TO SET THE LAST TWO DIGITS OF THE YEAR HERE.. Example... it is now 2010.. so scroll thru the numbers and set it to "10"!! Now.. when you go and set the numerical day date e.g. 3 for March, and set the numerical day - e.g. 15, the on-board computer?? in the watch will AUTOMATICALLY SET THE NAME OF THE WEEK!! It will look-up For Example.. in the year 2010.. 3-14 is SUN.. and will set it as that!! Hope this saves you some frustration. Regards... klsdad@mindspring.com (Mar 14, 2010)

SOURCE: How to set an Armitron watch. Can't set the days correctly.

mcdevito75 here, The stem has 2 positions, Carefully slip a fingernail under the stem and lift, it may take a few trys to get used to it, in this first position you should be able to set the DATE very easily and Maybe the DAY of the wwek also, turn the stem 1 way to change the DATE and the other way For the DAY of the week., Let"s figure you can only set the DATE in this first position, First thig to do is set the DAY of the week, go thru the watches 24 hour cycle and set the DAY to 1 DAY before the DAY you need, now in that first position of the stem, set the DATE to 1 DATE before the DATE you need, now in the 2nd position we all know pull the stem out to set the time of day, go thru the 24 hour cycle to bring up the DAY of the week and DATE you need. Now your watch is set and will change on tome at around mid-nite.

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

If the watch only has the crown stem (used to set the time on most watches) on the side of the watch, then that is what will set the chronographs. You should have 1 chronograph that has the day of the week, 1 that has the actual number day of the month, and 1 that represents 24 hours (this one helps you know when the date will change over and when the time is am or pm). It should have three places in the crown stem in which it will "catch" when you pull it out. The first and second catch will set the day and date of the month and the third will set the time, which will also turn the 24 hour chrono hand to show you if you are setting am or pm. If you have a crown stem and two push buttons on the side of your watch, then you usually have a truly functioning chronograph feature, but your watch wouldn't since the chronos have the date function instead.

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 does its year calendar work?


The day at a glance calendar system used in this Orient watch, has been used in a number of watches over the past 40 years, perhaps most famously in the Wittnauer "2000" watch (which Orient actually made for Wittnauer under contract). Orient itself has used this system in a number of different styles of watches. Note that the daily date window is separate from the day of the week / month at a glance system; the date window is driven in traditional fashion by the movement.

The day/month at a glance system is based on a single disc inside the watch that is manually advanced by the user. If you look at the top of the watch, where the months are listed, you'll see little two-digit numbers. These represent different years--"04" refers to 2004, "11" to 2011, etc. To get the right days of the week at the bottom of the dial, you move the appropriate year under the current month. That will line up the days of the week--Monday, Tuesday, etc.--with their correct dates. You may see the same year repeated more than once on the upper part of the dial because the calendar has a specific pattern that can be replicated.

On older watches using this same system, the top pusher was used to adjust the date window, and a separate winding knob controlled movement of the year/monthly calendar disc. On this specific watch, which I have not handled in person, I cannot see a separate crown to adjust the date, and so I am guessing that you would pull out the set stem part-way to engage the disk setting mode. This would make sense because unlike the date window, where the date is always advanced, the year must move both backwards and forwards to align with all the months in a given year--you'll see that January and October are in the same place on the dial, for example.


If you're interested, here's an example of a vintage Orient that uses this same system for its calendar. Note how the monthly calendar and year/month alignment are flipped from the watch you asked about. Please note that I have no connection with this web site, make no endorsement as to the price being asked for this watch--but it has a nice picture of a classic Orient:

http://forums.watchuseek.com/f30/$128-all-steel-orient-perpetual-calendar-xl-case-vintage-watch-526811.html

On a final note, you'll see a number of people refer to these as "perpetual calendar" watches. That's not accurate. The year / days of the week disc holds about 20 years of calendar information. After that, the disc is no longer accurate, though you can easily keep aligning the monthly calendar just be referring to a printed calendar and adjusting it that way. For a period of time (not sure if they still do it), Orient would accept older watches with this system and change out the old year/day wheel with a new one that went further into the future.

How do i set the time and date on my watch?


Hi,

This is direct link to all ARMITRON watch manuals/instructions: http://www.armitron.com/watch_instructions.asp

or

You can also try with this approach. This is for Armitron WR 330,but i believe this could also help you.

The following labels are on the inner ring of the watch; I've given their positions relative to where numbers would be on the face of an analog watch.
"ST/STP" is at 2:00; "EL" is at 4:00; "MODE" is at 8:00; and "ADJ" is at 10:00.
To set the time, date, and day of week:
Press and hold in the "MODE" button until the display starts flashing. (This is the alarm time.)
Press the "MODE" button again; the seconds begin flashing. Press "ADJ" to set them to zero.
Press the ""ST/STP" button to change what you want to set. The options appear in this order each time you press the "ST/STP" button: minutes, hour, month, day, day of week.
Use the "ADJ" button to change the value of the setting.
Touch "MODE" to save the settings and return to time mode.


Thanks for using Fixya. Please rate the solution.

How do you set time on the Armitron Women's Sport Large Digital Pink Resin Strap Watch #456963PNK+


Here is what I found....

Hi, I have a 40/6753 and here is what I found to set the watch
................Adj......................Start/Stop

...............Mode
.............................EL
Press and Hold down the MODE button until the display starts to flash that you are Adjusting the alarm. If you need to adjust the alarm here ya go :)
Press the mode button again and it switches from adjusting the ALARM to adjusting the TIME.
At this point the display will be flashing the seconds. Press the ADJ button and it will switch to Adjusting the Minutes. Press the AdJ button to advance the minutes.
Pressing the Start/Stop will switch to Adjusting the Hour. Again pressing the ADJ button will advance the Hour until you get to the correct one.
Once correct press the Start/Stop to switch to Adjusting the DATE. Press the ADJ to advance Month and Day.
Pressing the Start/Stop will finally switch to Adjusting the DAY OF THE WEEK. (little circle to the left hand side). Again, pressing the ADJ will advance the Day until correct.
This took me an hour just pressing buttons until I could figure this out. I hope this helps everyone.
