The crown is probably a screw down style. The screw down stem is designed to keep the water out and should be screwed shut when not adjusting the watch. Look at the watch stem from the side, look from the 3 oclock to the 9 oclock, you should see the end of the stem. Now turn the stem counterclockwise. After a number of turns, the stem should pop out a bit, it is now ready to set. Most waterproof automatic day/date watches have 4 positions for the stem:
1: screwed down (locked)
2: unscrewed position A
3: unscrewed position B (stem pulled out to first "click")
4: unscrewed position C (stem pulled out all the way.)
This is usually used to wind the watch, although some automatic watches cannot be wound by the stem.
Used to set day/date. Turning the stem one direction will advance the day and turning it the other direction will advance the date.
Used to set the time. Some watches will "hack," a term used to describe the ability to stop the second hand for accuracy purposes.
Be sure the watch is at least a little bit wound before starting theis procedure or it will not run when you get it set!
Unscrew the stem and pull it all the way out to position C. Now turn the stem to advance the time clockwise. Continue turning until the day/date advances, now you know you are in the AM 12 hrs of the day. It is important not to advance the day/date with the stem during the 3 hours before and the 3 hours after midnight, so go ahead and move the time to 8 am.
Now push the stem in sligthly until you are in position B. Sometimes it is easier to go to position A, the out to position B. Once in position B, advance the day/date until it is set for the current day/date.
Pull the stem out to position C. Adjust the time to one minute past the current time. Watch your reference timepiece until it matches your watch and push the stem in when they match.
Your watch is now set! Screw the crown down and wear it in good health.
Hacking. If you stop the second hand at 0 seconds, and wait for your reference timepiece to reach 0 seconds also, you can set the watch to within a second accuracy.
Movement slop. If you advance the time past the time you wish to set your watch and then "backup" to your chosen time, you will remove the slop from the geartrain and make your watch set more accuretly

This watch has a disposable movement(guts). That means the battery is the only part that can be replaced. The thing is glued together instead of screwed.
Take it to a watchmaker that can get the replacement movement from Tag as the ordinary movements out there are different from the genuine Tag movements. Date wheels specifically are different.
Anyway, a professional watchmaker, not a jeweler or store clerk please, will be able to tell you if that is the correct course of events to take. Probably looking at 200 to 250

Pull out crown to the time setting position (second click) and set time to 5.30 pm or am. Push crown back completely. Pull out crown to the date setting position (first click) and set it to 26th, then pull out crown further out to the time setting position (second click) and adjust watch hands forwards until the date changes to 27th. Date is changing at midnight, so, continue to adjust hands forward to the right time. Rate me, plz.
gibb erish....the same problem that already happened it on me..but there is a solution for that.just focus..let your excitement blow up if u done it will..
a manual has shown a combination of bottons to press..there is a diagram showing the combination to press so that it will beep. just try.. sometimes i press D go back to A and try long press tell it beeps and so on just follow the manual.. while the hands are still on movement just wait to stop before you press some bottons..be patient our watch is awesome..
If you pull out crown carefuly, you will notice there are two clicks. The first one is for adjusting calendar (day or/and date). Next one is for moving hands. Pull out to the first click and adjust the date by turning the crown.
There are three adjustment knobs on the right side of the watch. Two are smaller than the main time adjustment knob. For clarification I will label:
Top knob: #1
Middle knob: #2
Bottom knob: #3
To adjust the stopwatch feature:
1. Turn #2 counter-clockwise until it pops out to its adjusting position.
2. Pull #2 towards the right until you feel the first click. (There are two click positions).
3. Simultaneously hold both #1 and #3 down until you see the 1/16 hand and the 30 minute hand rotate automatically to a fixed position.
Now you are ready to calibrate the stopwatch feature.
4. Click mulitiple times on #3 and you will see the 30 min. had move clock wise incrementally with every click. Keep clicking on #3 until the 30 min. hand reaches its apex (to its 12:00 position).
5. Now click multiple times on #1 and you will see the 1/16th hand move in very small increments clockwise. You may be bold and try to hold down #1 and let it swing as close as possible to the 12:00 position and then multiple click #1 to get it precisely to its apex.
You are almost done.
6. Now simultaneously hold #1 and #3 until you see both the 1/16th second hand and the 30 minute hands auto-rotate clockwise to their respective 12:00 positions.
Fantastic! However, now you have to return the watch back to its original locked position. This is where it could get a little tricky.
7. Make sure the time is correct. Using #2 fully extended to its 2nd click position you may adjust the time.
8. Using #2 extended to its 1st click position you may adjust the date. (Here's the trick, do not set the date for today's date. Rather, set it for the day before or in some cases, 2 days before. I will explain in a moment).
9. Now, depress #2 fully back towards the main body of the watch as best as possible and while holding down #2 turn it clockwise until it locks into position.
During this operation you may notice that the date will go forward until the watch locks into position, ergo, I had to make sure the date was for the day before...and it some cases, 2 days before.
Your watch is ready to use.
The stopwatch feature for this analog watch works very similarly to that of an actual stopwatch.
Press and hold #1 once to stop the 1/16 hand. Press and hold #3 to have both the 1/16th second hand and the 30 minute hands return to their 12:00 positions. Now you are ready to race!
Press #1 to start the stopwatch. Press #1 to stop the stopwatch. Press #3 to return the hands back to their respective positions. You may even press #3 after you press #1 to get a second reading but I will let you figure that out for yourself.
Hard to tell without knowing what model or caliber number (usually on back). Generally, if you pull the crown (winding knob) out all the way you can set the time. Push it ONE click in, you can set the date. Check with the manufacturers website for a book of instructions you can download.
