To set time, you need to unscrew crown anti-clockwise direction if you have a
screw-in crown watch. You need to softly and slowly pull the crown out a little
bit. The best way to do this is to use first and second finger and use finger
knuckle as a lever in order to pull the crown out with as little force as
possible. You can feel a little "click"! Now you can set the time by turning it
anti-clockwise. This would turn the minute-hour hands forward until you set the
right time. When time is set, push the button back and screw the crown clockwise
for a few rounds to ensure it is screwed back tight.

Manually, the time (and date) are set by releasing the crown wheel and turning it so that the hands move clockwise to the correct time. If you have a date function, you may have to cycle the crown wheel quite a few times to reach the correct day and date.
On digital watches, the user guide will indicate which buttons should be pressed to set the time and date. Refer to the user guide that came with your watch, go onto the manufacturer's website or go back to the store where you bought the watch and ask them to show you how to do it.
On smart watches, the time should be set automatically when the watch synchronises with your smartphone or wifi signal.
Pull the right post out. It may first have to be unscrewed to unlock it. Pull it out one click to set the date, two clicks to set the time. I recommend setting the time first and go all the way past 12 to see if you are on AM or PM (the date will advance or won't). Set the time correctly, then push the stem in one click and set the date. Push the stem in all the way and then turn it to wind. You can't over wind an automatic watch but always use gentle pressure to avoid damage.
Pull the stem out to the time set level. Turn the hand around until the date change. Now push the stem back in, pull to date set level and change to current date. Now the watch is at midnight for that current date. Note you can set to current time of day. The Watch will automatically change to correct date for next day at midnight as it should.
This depends on the watch. But first you have to ensure that when setting the watch it is set to AM or PM depending on what time of the day it is. Once this is set the date will automatically change when the day comes to an end. Hope this solution has been helpful?
sometimes during time set, the hands are set to change date at day time.
check it your date turns during 12 noon, if yes move the hands clockwise until you set your time and date on sync.
say you want to set your watch date:10th and time:10:15am
adjust your date at 9th
then move your hands clockwise until the date turns to 10th at the 12 thats the 12 midnight.
then continue moving your hands clockwise until you reach 10:15am
mcdevito75, Here, You can set the date on your Timex Automatic, by simply slipping your fingernail just under the stem (winder) and gently lift it up to it"s first position (notch), this will allow you to turn the stem to change the date without haveing to turn the hands so many times. once set push the syem back in.
mcdevito75 here, The stem has 2 positions, first, set the day to 1 day before the day you need, now, slip a finger nail just under the stem and gently, gently lift the crown to it;s first position, set the DATe to 1 date before the date you need. Push crown back in, now pull crown out to set the date and time of day. Your watch is set and should change around mid nite
