QuoraThere is a gear within an analog watch that is used to change the date at the appropriate time. The gear ... Watches: What is a fair price for a authentic 1970's vintage "McQueen" Rolex Explorer II? Why does the day start at midnight?
Main cause would be that the date gear teeth have been stripped. This is done by setting the date whilst the hands are trying to change the date themselves (between 10pm and 2am). Always adjust the date with the hands around 6.0clock. You will need to return your watch to where you bought it for repair I'm afraid.
Does the watch have a 'screwdown' crown on it or pull out crown (also known as a dust proof crown). A screwdown is usually on a model which has a waterproofing of around 100 meters (330ft) +
To change the date ( the quick way usually but not always) GENTLEY pull out the crown (or first unscrew if it's a screwdown) to the first 'click' you will feel it. then gentley wind the crown down towards the six or up to the tweleve (some change mostly its down towards the six) and Hey Presto the date changes automatically. This beats winding it through 24 hrs.
Now to change the time, from the date set one more gentle click, or two from the original (standby position). then you are free to move the hands as you please.
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.
you're not supposed to change the time at certain times if it is an automatic. I think any time after 8pm and before 4am (but check your manual). Apparently it messes up the mechanism. Maybe that's the issue?
