Date Changes during the day

I am having trouble setting the day and date to change at or near midnight on this watch. It is bilingual. Is there some way to set it so I can see the english during the day, and have the day and date change during the night. P.S. I have already tried setting the day and date at midnight.

Hi Jeffrey, 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 and they should advance. Once youv'e found that there's midnight so if you're setting the time at say four (4:00) in the afternoon (pm) you will neew to rotate the hands so around the dial so they pass 12:00 once more then four hours more to 4:00. Now I assume by bilingual you mean that the day ring has like Mon (monday) and Lun for Spanish or the like. In this case if it's showing the wrong languare set the crown (winder) to the first position (second posn is "set hands) and rotate winder eithr clockwise or anticlockwise. Once you discover how to advance the day ring just set it to the correct day/language you want and press the crown home. Hope this solves your problem. If the advances are changing at some obscure time like 8:40 or something it's because the hands pave been located incorrectly and would need correcting by removing movement from the case.

The date on my Tissot PRC 100 changes either 1/2 day early or 1/2 day late. How can it be set so that the date changes at 12:00 am?


Your watch is 12 hours out, as it "thinks" that midnight is midday.

The solution is to wind your watch forward 12 hours and then the date will change at midnight.

I can't set the date on my watch - right now I have to scroll through the time setting mechanism hour by hour and day by day?


The date changes around midnight and you can usually advance the date by going past midnight until the date changes and then turning the watch backward to a time shortly before midnight and then winding it forward again.

How far back you need to go you will have to find by experiment but it should not be very far.

My analog Guess watch has a date display only (no day). I have re-set the date over and over, but it changes the date at noon instead of at midnight.


Your problem is caused by the fact that the watch is 12 hours out of step.

Wind your watch forward 12 hours, reset the date if you need to and you watch will then change around midnight.

(if you need to change the date more than one day, when it has past the change time, wind it back and then forward to step the date forward. You may have to experiment to see how far past the change point (in both directions).

How do i set the day (Mon-Sun) on my ax2013 watch?


When you pull the crown out there are two positions. The first is the day/date setting position. Turn the crown one way and the date changes, the other direction the day of the week changes. Set both the day and date to yesterday. It will become evident why when you finish. Now pull the crown all the way out and notice when you turn the crown the hands move. Advance the hands to the 12 o'clock position in a clockwise direction. As you pass 12 the date may begin to change. If not then you now know that was noon and not midnight because the date only changes at midnight. If the date did not change advance the hands all the way around 12 hours. This will now be midnight and the date should begin to change. It may be almost instantaneous or may take until 12:30 or so. Continue advancing the hands to 4 o'clock. You should see between midnight and 4 the day of the week advance. Now the day/date are correct for today and the final step is to set the correct time. Remember, you are now set a 4 AM. Advance the hands to the correct time. That means if it is 3 in the afternoon, you must advance past noon to 3. You cannot go backwards. That would be 3 AM!

Day date changes midday 12:00 PM, not midnight 12:00 AM. How to change this?


Your watch thinks your noon is midnight.

Wind the hands forward 12 hours and the date change will be at midnight. You will have to re-set the date if it gains a day when doing this.

I have an old lucerne windup day date watch but the crown only pulls out 1 notch only to set the time. how do i set the day date or do i have to sit there and advance it manually


The date changes hen the hour hand passes midnight (more or less).

To change the date for more than one day wind it past midnight and when the date has changed, turn the time back past midnight and then forward again.

You may have to experiment to find out how far back before midnight you have to go before going forward again, but at least you don't have to wind it 24 hours for each day!

HOW TO CHANGE DATE


The Skagen watches have  two-step stem; fully pulled out will change the time and partially pulled out will change the date (only goes one way so try turning it counter-clockwise or clockwise - I forget which is correct).  It's easier to find the date length by extending it all the way and then go back toward the case.  It won't change the date if you run it through a 24-hour cycle - you have to do the half-way thing.  Hope this helps.
