Thanks for contacting FixYa.
That is a very unfortunate situation. Are you sure there is no way to ask the giver for reciept as it may be under original warranty.
Check the manual to see if there is a contact # for Avalon. This is a off brand that I am not familiar with. I would try that first.
If no luck there, you will have to contact a local watchmaker. Small fee to do it, but unfortunate as it is new.
If you need a watchmaker, here is a good one:

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.

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

I recently purchased an Invicta Outdoor Trail Edition Men's watch, model J401668. The manual states to pull the stem out to the first click and rotate it counterclockwise to set the day. It does not...


You're probably pulling it out to hard. Solution: pull the stem out completely and carefully try to push it back in for one click only, then attempt to set the date. If this doesn't work, return the watch as it is defective.

Westclox model LTX271 instructions for setting day


mcdevito75 here, The stem on your westclox has 2 positions, First pull the stem out to set the time of day, keep cycleing the watch until you come to 1 day before the day you want. NOW! push the stem back in. NOW! slip a finger nail just under the crown and gently, gently kift the crown to it"s first position, it may take a little practice so be patient, once in it's first position you can change the DATE easily, change the DATE to 1 DATE before the DA you want, push the syem back in and pull the stem back out and set the day/date and time of day. Your watch is set and will change on time a little past mid nite.

I bought a Park Lane Ladies watch on ebay it says quartz and was described in working condition i set the time pushed the pin in and nothing how do I get this to work


mcdevito75 here, If when you recieved the watch from ebay you had to push the crown in to get it going, we can assume a battery wa sin the watch, thus pushing in the stem (pin) should activate or start the watch. The battery could have gotton loose during shipping, Try pulling out the stem turning the hands as though to set the time, push the stem back in and see if the watch starts, if not, visit a small watch repair shop in your area for possibly a new battery.

Unable to reset brietling colt, even after ajusting stem to 1st and 2nd postions.


mcdevito75 here, Let"s hope your description of the problem with your watch is wrong. Try this sequence, First, wind your watch, the automatic continues to wind your watch when you where it but to get it started, wind it 20--30 times. 2nd, your crown locks down, turn the stem Clockwise to un-lock it (the stem) now pull the stem all the way out then back in 1/2 way to set date. Set DATE to DATE before the real date turn crown counterclockwise. Now pull out crown all the way and turn clockwise to set the DATE and time (real Date) push the crown back in and turn counterclockwise to lock the crown. If this doesn"t work, look for a small watch repair shop in your area for this adjustment.

Question:how to set the weekday on a Fossil watch model BQ-9165.


You have to pull out the stem all the way and turn clockwise until you get to the correct day. Hopefully you won't have to wind thru the whole week.

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.

Do not forget to rate, please.

The pin used to set the time pulled out completely


The pin you called it is the stem and crown try this technic before you bring or send it to a service center.Put it back where you taken it out ,while puting it in wind the crown and push it gently inside so it locked it up by pushing it gently inside.Check it out if not pulled out again the stem and crown if not and still coming out there something broken inside
