The day date always now switches over at noon instead of midnight. I've tried to reset it correctly several times, but it doesn't work. what do I need to do?


Hi!

The problem you described is caused by incorrect setting of the hour: AM and PM must be set correctly, AM before noon and PM afternoon.

good luck!

The day inscription is two days late, monday, watch says saturday


So to change the Day and Date of your Watch, slowly pull the Stem out... (Do note that if you have a Waterproof Watch, you'll need to unscrew the Stem counter-clockwise, which is towards you, until it unlocks, then you can pull the Stem out!) But this is where you need to go slow. If you pull it out slowly you should hear one snap. (It stops on the first notch) If you pull the Stem out all the way, it snaps twice and ends up on the second notch. (See picture below) The second notch, or all the way out, is where the Stem needs to be to set the Time.
day-changed.gif 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.

How do i set the day (Mon-Sun) on my ax2013 watch?


When you pull the crown out there are two positions. The first is the day/date setting position. Turn the crown one way and the date changes, the other direction the day of the week changes. Set both the day and date to yesterday. It will become evident why when you finish. Now pull the crown all the way out and notice when you turn the crown the hands move. Advance the hands to the 12 o'clock position in a clockwise direction. As you pass 12 the date may begin to change. If not then you now know that was noon and not midnight because the date only changes at midnight. If the date did not change advance the hands all the way around 12 hours. This will now be midnight and the date should begin to change. It may be almost instantaneous or may take until 12:30 or so. Continue advancing the hands to 4 o'clock. You should see between midnight and 4 the day of the week advance. Now the day/date are correct for today and the final step is to set the correct time. Remember, you are now set a 4 AM. Advance the hands to the correct time. That means if it is 3 in the afternoon, you must advance past noon to 3. You cannot go backwards. That would be 3 AM!

Module 3070 - PAW1300 > AM / PM problem apparently. Everything works except day and date 12 hours behind. EX: In HNL (Honolulu) on Monday morning, September 6 watch gives correct time, but shows SUN...


Hi, Obviously you need to roll the time 12 hours ahead. If the watch doesn't receive the Atomic signal properly at first, go to page three of your manual, and try doing it manually following the detailed procedures there.

If you don't have the manual, get it here:
http://world.casio.com/wat/download/en/manual/

Take the four-digit (3070) module 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

I have the correct time and date but the day shows Sunday and it should show Saturday. I need to understand the setting sequence.


The day changes at midnight but if your watch thinks it is displaying 11a.m. when it is in fact 11p.m., then it won't change over until noon the next day.

Solution; wind your watch forward 12 hours (tedious, I know). You will then need to reset the watch to the correct day.

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.

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.

How do you set the day/date on a watch????????


Try this solution I posted earlier for a similar problem.
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 (to twelve o'clock again) and they should advance. Once you've found that there's midnight.So say it's now 4:00pm you would need to rotate the hands around the dial again so they pass 12:00 once more (12:00 midday) then four hours more to 4:00.
To set the day/date you can set the crown (winder) to the first position (second posn is "set hands) 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.
Hope this solves your problem.

Rolex watch yacht master set time


Let me start by saying that I own this watch and LOVE it!

To set the time you need to pull the crown all the way out to the furthest position.

To set the date you need to have the crown in the position in between the "winding" position and the "time set" position. Basically, pull the crown out till you hear/feel 1 click to wind, 2 clicks (total) to set the date, and 3 (total) clicks to set the time. I always set the date first to 1 day behind the current date. I then move the crown out to set the time so that I can set the watch to either AM/PM depending on the actual time. For example, I set my Rolex today (the 5th of January at 3pm - just an example). I would first move the crown to the date setting function and move it to January 4. I would then move it out one more position to set the time. I would go around the watch until the date changed to the 5th and then go around from 12 to 12 to change from AM to PM. I would then move it to the 3 and then I'm all set. This is helpful because it will ensure that your date will correctly change when the day changes and not be 12 hours behind.

Date setting on Citizen 0510 chronograph


Try this method. Set the date until it reads a couple of days in the past and then set the correct time. Of course do not touch your date or time settings between the hours of 9PM-1AM. Wait until the next day, then move the hour hand forward until you reach the current date with the correct time.
