If it is this pocket watch, then the crown (the bit you turn to wind the watch) has 3 positions. Position 1 is when the crown is pushed in all the way. Position 3 is when the crown is pulled out as far as it will go. In between position 1 and position 3 is a place where the crown will stop, this is position 2. To set the day of the week, pull the crown out to position 3 to set the time. When you set the time, the bottom dial with also turn to set the hour on the 24 hour clock, if you turn the crown enough to cycle through a whole day the day of the week dial will also turn. Keep turning the crown until the time is set on the proper day of the week. To set the date, pull the crown out to position 2, and turn it clockwise until the hand on the date dial points to the correct date. Hope this helps!
If the day is in a window next to the date, pull the crown out one position to the same position used for the date correction. Often turning one way changes the date, turning the other direction changes the day. If your day is on a small dial on the watch dial then pull the crown out two clicks and go around 24 hours at a time and you will see the day advance.
First you need to unscrew the crown (setting knob) of the watch. Turn dial from up to down (downwards), you will feel the knob loosen and then it will pop out gently.
Pull out the pin very gently and turn downwards to set the date. If you have a Day and Date watch, turn upwards to set the day of the week.
To set the time, pull the pin out futher and turn to set the appropriate time.
Finally push pin in and simultaneously turn upwards to screw back the pin.
Please make sure you push turn the pin tightly because most cases of Water Damaged watches are caused due to the pin being screwed up not tight enough.
Since you didnt tell me what KIND of watch it is I am giving you a general instructions.
Wait until the second hand is at zero (the top of the dial). Then pull the crown knob out as far as it will go to set the time on your watch. Turn the knob in either direction and look at the three additional hands on the time dials of your watch: the minute hand, the hour hand and the 24-hour hand.
Stop turning the knob when all minute and hour hands are pointing to the correct time. Pay special attention to the 24-hour hand so that you have a.m. or p.m. correct.
Push the knob back in exactly when a new minute is starting so that your second hand will be correct. Use another clock you know to be accurate as a reference, such as the government clock available online.
Pull the knob out halfway so you can set the date. Turn it counterclockwise until you notice the date on the watch changing. Stop it and push the knob back in to its starting position once you reach the correct one. Try to set the date before 9 p.m. If you set it after that time, it may not register with your watch that it should switch the date at midnight. If this happens with your watch, just fix it the next day.
Set the chronograph, or big dial, on your watch. It works like a stopwatch to let you time activities for up to one hour. Push the top button on the side of your watch to start it. Push it again to stop it. Push the bottom button on the side of your watch to reset it.
It would certainly help if next time you let us know what kind of watch it is you have, Best of luck.
mcdevito75 here, It takes practice, the crown does have 2 positions, slip a fingernail just under the crown and lift to it"s first position this will allow you to change the DATE (number) once you get the correct Date, push tje crown back in, NOW! pull the crown out to set the DAY itself and the time. On some watches the crowns first position allows both the day and date to be changed by turning the crown in it"s first position clock wise and counter clock wise.
There isn;t any downloadable manuals for Rolex watches, but operation of Rolex is very simple: 1) when you unscrew the crown, it is in winding position, 2) when you pull out the crown to the first click, it is in day and date setting position (depending wich way you turn the crown). NOTE: to adjust the day or date, previously you have to advance hands forward, passing 12 o'clock (midnight) mark and stop advancing at 4.00 a.m. using the crown in position as described in chapter 3. When done - push the crown fully in, then pull out to the first click and only then adjust the day or date. 3) when you pull the crown further out to the second click, it is in time setting position. To find the daytime or night time on the watch: pull out crown to the second click and advance watch hands forward till you pass the 12 mark on dial. If the date changes as you pass it - it is the night time (midnight). If the date do not change as you pass it - it is the daytime (noon). After all settings being done, allways screw the crown back down as it protects the watch from water and moisture. Never use watch in sauna- it's not designed for that. Do not forget to rate, please.
Alhamdulillah, the problem solved (at last) tks to IRONMAN
The steps are like this : 1. Pull the crown full, and turn it clockwise until you find the right day. 2.
and then push it one click (dont push it to hard so it back to normal
position) and turn the crown counter clockwise to adjust date. 3. Push the small button near the crown to adjust month.
