Hi, Since Citizen does not list this caliber number on their site, try another caliber number close to your model, with the same features. I've been successful with this procedure more often than not. Most setting instructions are near the front of the manual, between pages 3-9. If you don't have the manual, Try this link:
http://www.citizenwatches.com.au/instruction-manuals

Take the four-digit Calibre number from the back of the watch, enter it, and download a PDF of your watch setting-instructions/manual.
I hope this helps you. Thanks, Bill

How to set an Armitron watch. Can't set the days correctly.


mcdevito75 here, The stem has 2 positions, Carefully slip a fingernail under the stem and lift, it may take a few trys to get used to it, in this first position you should be able to set the DATE very easily and Maybe the DAY of the wwek also, turn the stem 1 way to change the DATE and the other way For the DAY of the week., Let"s figure you can only set the DATE in this first position, First thig to do is set the DAY of the week, go thru the watches 24 hour cycle and set the DAY to 1 DAY before the DAY you need, now in that first position of the stem, set the DATE to 1 DATE before the DATE you need, now in the 2nd position we all know pull the stem out to set the time of day, go thru the 24 hour cycle to bring up the DAY of the week and DATE you need. Now your watch is set and will change on tome at around mid-nite.

Setting day and date - the day and date change at the wrong tome of day


To sync the correct 12 hour with your day you need to set the date to the day before (if today is Wed 21, then make sure the day window reads Tues 20). Then spin the analog hands until the the date window turns to Wed 21. At this point your watch is reading 12 AM (midnight). Then keep turning to set the correct time. If it is 9 am then stop the hands the first time you hit the 9 marker. If it is 9pm, then keep turning until the SECOND TIME your hour hand meets the 9 marker. This is now set for 9 pm. The day (Mon thru Sun) sometimes needs to be set seperately from the day; it may take a couple of tries but use the directions above and patience and you will achieve your goal.
That's how you do it. If you need more clarification let me know.

Nicolet Men's Metrosphere Swiss Automatic Stainless Steel Watch the day is not in English, currently it shows MIE, can I set this to show the days in english?


I don't know this watch specifically but typically the following applies:
To set the day/date you set the crown (winder) to the first position (second posn is "set hands) i.e. pull out one stop, and rotate winder eithr clockwise or anticlockwise. Once you discover which direction advances the date and day ring just set it to the correct day/language and date you want then press the crown home.

Setting Date. Seiko SGF204 (w/ 7N43 Band) French & English Days.


If you pull out the stem 1/2 way, you set the date one direction, and the day the other. If you pull it out all the way, it moves the hands and sets the time.

Can't seem to get AM & PM set properly


Had Pulsar analog watch. Couldn't set either day or date properly due to being unable to signify AM or PM. When days changed one or the other would be 12 hours off.
""googled" adjusting Pulsar watches" and found site which explained how. You set day of week and date to previous day and date and then move watch time ahead until day and date are correct. Then set watch time. Seems to work.

Date and month


There are three positions when you unscrew the crown stem. One does the day, one does the date and one does the time. You can also advance the date by rotating the crown stem and advance the time for 24 hours, as if a day passed. That takes a lot longer.
