Luminox 8200 series dive watch date set issue

Hey, I have an 8201 and the date has always been off. I just paid 55 bucks to have them clean and set the date and it's off again (shows November 31 on Dec 1st). How do I set this right? 7 months end in 31. Is there an easy way to get my watch back on track without scrolling through the year?

This movement has a really quirky thing going on, its one of the few movements that you can actually turn the hor hand to set the day forwards or on a day that goes from the 31 to the 1st it will advance fine, if there is no 31 for that month you can turn the hour hand 2 cycles and it will advance through the 34, continue to the 1st and set can also be set by turning the hour hand backwards thru the dates...go ahead it doesnt 'hurt' the movement a bit, its made for in oither wiords, when you get a new cell and the date is lets say the 15th and your watch says its the 2nd, just advance the hour hand through until you hit 15 and yoiu are good to go...hopefuly this help and didnt confuse much...good luck:)

Guess Athletic--date is one day ahead-want to set one date back (5-9)

Hi, you have two options to do this:
  1. If you have a spare watch, pull the crown (winder) out to the full time adjust position. Check that the watch has stopped and leave it for 24 hours then adjust time and push crown back in again to restart the watch
  2. You will need to wind the date on through it's full 31 day cycle, as 99.9% of date display watches can only go forward, not backwards.
Hope this helps :)

I have a TAG Aquaracer Automatic. Should it not compensate automatically for months with only 30 days, such as September, November, April and June? At the end of September, the date changed from 30, to...

Your watch is a mechanical type for which there is no way of making it skip days. I have the same operation on my watch which although it has some electronic circuitry, variable month lengths is not one of the things it can compensate for.

Electronic watches can do this because they have flexible software which can be programmed to "remember" the length of the month.

I am unable to change the date on my Timex Indiglo. It currently reads (Sept.) 31, altho it is (Oct.) 1. How do I do change it without changing the time?

mcdevito75 here, If your watch is push button, simply push MODE and see the display flashing, then press mode again until you reach the date, then press set to set the correct date, then press mode again for steady display. If it"s a windup, simply go thru the 24 hour cycle for the correct date.
