I have a Seiko Diamatic 780632. To set the day and date, pull the crown once and wind it upwards (away from you) to set the date; winding it downwards (towards you) will set the day. To set the time, you have to pull the crown twice and wind it towards you.

Try this: pull out the winding crown to the first click and change the
date. Memorize which way the crown turns to do that. Now turn the crown
in opposite direction and the day should adjust.
This solution wrks for most of the makes.
If this doesb't work - submit the make, model and all the writings on watch caseback.

SOURCE: Date Changes during the day
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.

Testimonial: "Perfect- very detailed and easy to follow. Thank you!"
Actually in the realm of things that is close to midnight. But if you want this changed you will have to take it to a watch repair person because the movement will have to be taken out of the watch and the hands pulled and rest to change when the calender flips over. When I set up watches i usually have the day/date flip after 2 am so that most people never see it change ( because they are asleep lol)

I often sell vintage Timex watches which have a day and date feature. Setting the day and date feature can be a little tricky - if not frusterating if you aren't familiar with how to do it since most of the original manuals that came with these are long gone!
I'll try to explain the process - please feel free to contact me if this doesn't make sense.
1. Pull out the crown on the right hand side of the watch.
2. Advance the crown so the time advances clockwise until the day is correct.
3. Rotate the crown so the time is going counter-clockwise (the opposite direction) until the date "clicks". (the day will click first, then the date).
4. Rotate the crown so the time is going clockwise again and the date will advance.
5. Continue this back and forth action of rotation until the date is correct.
6. Push in the crown and you're done!
I'm considering making a video of this process. Please let me know if this is something you would be interested in.
