The winding crown is loose on the stem. Get the stem completely out of watch and while holding in vice or pair of pliers screw the crown back on tight. Do not overscrew it, as the stem may brake. Even better would be to unscrew the crown first, dip the threaded stem end in to the Superglue and then screw the crown back. It will prevent from the same problem in future.

Rate, please.

How do i change the time on the three small dials


Hello Garrett,

"Three small dials"... My guess is that we are talking
a chronometer... (stopwatch)... "ZERO Process".

Not only are the three sub-dials usually settable... but also the sweep second hand.

Trouble: After resetting the watch... the hands go back to the same position...

Solution: You want to "ZERO" your dials... one by one.

These watches typically need to have the stem out to the third position... then press the top "start" timer button... observe ONE of your dials is moving. As it approaches the desired number release the button and step it into position with single button pushes.

Go to the bottom "stop" button... Repeat the process!

Push the stem in to the middle "set" position...
Repeat the process!

Again... press the top "start" timer button... zero
and finally press the top "stop" timer button... and zero.

Set the time and date... push that stem back into the home position... and record 35 seconds on your watch... stop and reset...

If everything does not come back exactly to ZERO...

Then that is called an iterative process (do it again).

Fine tune it!

Good Job.
(comment me back if I didn't hit the spot)

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.

I need to change the date


Changing the date for the FT500WVB watch is easy. Just pull out the stem of the watch to its first stop. Then turn the stem counter clockwise a couple of twists and the displayed date will increment (that is increase) by one day and you will hear a little click. Keep twisting the stem counterclockwise and the date will increase by one each time with a little click. Stop when you reach the correct date and push the stem back in to its fully seated rest position. Note- be careful not to change the date when the watch displays a time between 9pm and 1 am as setting the date in this time range may cause the watch to increment the date at noon rather than midnight.

Note also that if you want to set the time you just pull out the stem to its second stop position and twist the stem to advance the position of the hands of the watch. Then when the time is set, push the stem back in to its lowest rest position. So remember- first stem stop sets the date and second stem stop sets the time. That's it.

How to use a chronograph watch factions


Thank you for contacting FixYa.

  • Identify the push button that controls the second hand. With the watch face positioned so that 12 is at the top, locate the button on the right of the watch's rim and above the watch stem.

  • 2

    Grasp the watch stem tightly and tug it out, away from the watch rim. Pull it past the first area of resistance, a position used for other settings, to the second stage of resistance where it will not pull out any further.

  • 3

    Press the second hand push button, identified earlier, until it is firmly depressed into the watch rim. Release the button, allowing it to return to its normal position.

  • 4

    Push the watch stem back to its original position tight to the rim.

    Remove the winding stem/crown.


    There is a tiny point (end of small metal piece called setting lever) on the left side of the stem (on watch movement, very close where the stem is entering the movement).
    You have to push that point down with a metal pin or tweezers. Crown (winder) must be pushed in to normal position otherwise you will not be able to put the stem back properly.
    So, do as follows:
    1) Push the crown in,
    2) Lay the watch down on flat surface and push on setting lever point,
    3) While holding setting lever pushed in- extract the setting lever by gently pulling crown out of watch.

    The crown is probably a screw down style. The screw down stem is designed to keep the water out and should be screwed shut when not adjusting the watch. Look at the watch stem from the side, look from the 3 oclock to the 9 oclock, you should see the end of the stem. Now turn the stem counterclockwise. After a number of turns, the stem should pop out a bit, it is now ready to set. Most waterproof automatic day/date watches have 4 positions for the stem:

    1: screwed down (locked)
    2: unscrewed position A
    3: unscrewed position B (stem pulled out to first "click")
    4: unscrewed position C (stem pulled out all the way.)

    Position A:
    This is usually used to wind the watch, although some automatic watches cannot be wound by the stem.

    Position B:
    Used to set day/date. Turning the stem one direction will advance the day and turning it the other direction will advance the date.

    Position C:
    Used to set the time. Some watches will "hack," a term used to describe the ability to stop the second hand for accuracy purposes.

    Be sure the watch is at least a little bit wound before starting theis procedure or it will not run when you get it set!


    Unscrew the stem and pull it all the way out to position C. Now turn the stem to advance the time clockwise. Continue turning until the day/date advances, now you know you are in the AM 12 hrs of the day. It is important not to advance the day/date with the stem during the 3 hours before and the 3 hours after midnight, so go ahead and move the time to 8 am.

    Now push the stem in sligthly until you are in position B. Sometimes it is easier to go to position A, the out to position B. Once in position B, advance the day/date until it is set for the current day/date.

    Pull the stem out to position C. Adjust the time to one minute past the current time. Watch your reference timepiece until it matches your watch and push the stem in when they match.

    Your watch is now set! Screw the crown down and wear it in good health.


    Hacking. If you stop the second hand at 0 seconds, and wait for your reference timepiece to reach 0 seconds also, you can set the watch to within a second accuracy.

    Movement slop. If you advance the time past the time you wish to set your watch and then "backup" to your chosen time, you will remove the slop from the geartrain and make your watch set more accuretly
