Retailer contacted rotary.
apparently there is quite a delay (hours) before the day eventually chages back to English. In other words it doesn't change immediately after 12pm but sometime early in the morning?
The moral of the story is that you should be in bed before 12pm and not to take any notice of the day on your watch since it will still be yesterday and in French?

My DZ4067 functions in the non-English day of the week for 21 hours a day now. How do I change it back so the the day of the week is in English for 21 hours a day?


The "day of the week" wheel on your watch actually has 2 settings on it--one for English, one for another language (often French, but could also be Russian, Japanese, Korean, or any other language, depending on the intended distribution of the watch). You'll need to shift the day track over by "half a notch," so to speak, to get things back in alignment.

The crown you use to set your watch can be pulled out into 2 positions. If you pull it all the way out, you set the time. If you pull it half-way out, you can set the day and date. If you turn the crown clockwise, you advance the date. If you turn the crown counter-clockwise, you should be able to change the day of the week. However, instead of turning the day back a full day, stop when you get a day with the correct language on it. At this point, pull the crown out all the way and manually advance the time 12 or 24 hours until the day and date advance as they would when the watch is running. This is to check that you've correctly gotten the day track correctly oriented. You may have to repeat this process a second time to get it right.


Once you have the day back on track, adjust the date and time, and you should be good to go.

Diesel's own directions, which can be found here: http://store.dieseltimeframes.com/common/images/customercare/instructions/ENGLISH/Diesel_Core-Inst_ENG.pdf are pretty cryptic, but they do have a diagram that might help a little bit. You'll want to look at the section for "Day/Date Watch IS02, 507.2-3, 517.2, 2105, 2305, 2405"

Good luck!

Ref G3002-Batt:UC-364 PO:01092. Rotary quartz watch. I require to alter the date and day feature which has english and european days. I can alter the time by pulling the handle out which is shielded in...


Your watch should have a position in between home and fully out but it sounds as if your watch is like mine, where I cannot detect the position (i.e no click or feeling any detent).

Try to pull the crown wheel out a little and turn it. (the day and date change feature is in this middle position).

The english days can be achieved by turning the wheel until the desired day shows (it alternates between english and another language).

Have patience and keep trying until you get the feel for the correct position!

How to set the date and time on timex t20471


There are two crown positions on this timepiece. The furthest out, or second position, sets the analog time hands. The first crown position in one direction sets the day, and in the other sets the date. To access the first crown position, pull the crown out very slowly until you feel a "click" or pull the crown out all the way and push it in slowly until you feel a "click" with your fingers.

To set the watch:

1) Pull the crown to the second position and bring the hour and minute hand to the 12:00 position, if it switches the day and date after moving past, you are then in AM time.

2) Set the time appropriately to AM/PM. Use http://www.time.gov/ for the most accurate time.

3) Put the crown in the first click position. Set the Date and Day appropriately, having determined the AM/PM time setting. This will ensure that the day/date change at 12:00 midnight instead of 12:00 noon.

FRENCH DATE KEEPS COMING UP


On many of the simpler Seiko Quartz date models, the setting mechanism usually alternates between English and your local language when setting. Pull the crown/stem out "one" click, then roll it to the other language. Press the crown back in. It should switch dates properly from there on. Also check this Casio link:

How do I change the "day of the week" on my Tommy Bahama 1072 watch?


But the first notch, or first snap, is the secret and the key to setting the Day and Date! In the first notch position, you'll see that if you spin the Crown one way, it will change the Day. Spin it in the opposite direction and it changes the Date! Do keep in mind that you may have to spin the Day and Date a couple rotations because it most likely will alternate between English and Spanish. Just pick the correct Language for you and it's done! When the Day and Date are set, push the Stem in all the way and enjoy your Watch! If you still have the problem with your Watch changing Dates at Noon instead of Midnight, that just means you're on the wrong 12 hr cycle. (It's set for Twelve at Night instead of Twelve at Noon) All you need to do is pull the Stem all the way out, (second notch) and Spin the Minute and Hour hands ahead 12 hours. If it's Twelve O'Clock, spin it ahead until it's Twelve O'Clock again. Doing that will put the Watch on the correct 12 hour cycle. Granted, you may have to reset your Day and Date again since you just advanced it, but at least you'll be in the correct Time Zone!

Need help adjusting the day to english


Usually pulling out the crown to the second position sets the time by turning in one direction and the day by turning it in the other direction. I some you will need to advance the time through 24 hour cycles till you get the proper day displayed and then set the date.

Pull the crown out to the 2nd click...rotate the hands clockwise until the day or date changes, that will let you know that the watch is at midnight. Set the correct time, push the crown in all the way. Now pull it out to the first click and turn either direction to change the day/date to english! When your watch is correctly set then push the crown all the way back in and you are finished! :-)

Date Changes during the day


Hi Jeffrey, Put stem into "set hands" position and adjust hands to the 12:00 position. Day and date should advance at or close to that time. If you pass 12:00 and there's no change continue rotating another 12 hours and they should advance. Once youv'e found that there's midnight so if you're setting the time at say four (4:00) in the afternoon (pm) you will neew to rotate the hands so around the dial so they pass 12:00 once more then four hours more to 4:00. Now I assume by bilingual you mean that the day ring has like Mon (monday) and Lun for Spanish or the like. In this case if it's showing the wrong languare set the crown (winder) to the first position (second posn is "set hands) and rotate winder eithr clockwise or anticlockwise. Once you discover how to advance the day ring just set it to the correct day/language you want and press the crown home. Hope this solves your problem. If the advances are changing at some obscure time like 8:40 or something it's because the hands pave been located incorrectly and would need correcting by removing movement from the case.

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.
