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.

How to set day/date on an 1968 DX automatic Seiko watch


Seiko watches from this period should have a setting stem that pull out half-way and fully. Pulling the stem out fully permits you to set the time. Pulling the stem out half-way should let you set the date by moving the crown forward/clockwise and set the day of the week by moving the crown backward/counterclockwise.

However, for this to work correctly, the watch must have the correct set stem. I have worked with a number of watches, including Seikos, where a generic stem was substituted after someone accidentally pulled out the crown and stem (Seiko replacement parts can be tough to find in the U.S., especially for discontinued models). If an incorrect stem has been installed, the day/date setting procedure I've just described may no longer work correctly. At that point, setting the date involves advancing the hands to get to the right date; day of the week may not be able to be set at all.

Good luck!

I can not seem to pull stem out of my analog timex wr 50 watch to set day and date. Only pulls out far enough to set time.This is the second watch that this has happened too. I returned the first one to...


most of the time with watches, there are two "pulls" on the stem to set the date and the time. normally, when you pull it out all the way, that's the setting for the time. so i think you've pulled it all the way out. try pushing it back in, then give the stem a soft pull. you'll feel about halfway, it stops a little bit. that should be the setting for the date.
i hope this helps

mcdevito75 here, The stem should be 2 position, first pull the stem out to adjust the DAY ot Month, push the stem back in, now slip a fingernail just under the stem anf lift to the stems first position, this should allow you to change the DATE, adjust to 1 day before the DATE you need, now lift the stem to adjust the time, go thru the complete 24 hour cycle to adjust the DATE and time of day. You should have the DAY or Month and correct date and your watch will change the DAY, DATE at the proper time also.

How do I adjust the time and date on my Timex Expedition watch


Hi, the upper of the two watch stems is turned counter clockwise (looking at the stem) until the desired function (i.e., format, date, time, chrono, timer) appears. To set that function, pull the upper stem out and turn CW to advance & CCW to go back. Once hours & minutes are set, the stem can be pushed in upon a mark to start at zero seconds. For the day of the week, turn the upper stem CCW until date appears. Pull out the stem, to detents or positions, and this will allow the day to be adjusted.

Take care

Cant set the date to one day before


Pull the stem out gently until it clicks once. Turn counterclockwise until the correct date appears. Pulling the stem out to the second/last click adjusts the time.

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
