When my BRAND NEW luminox 3000 series wrist watch reads the top of the hour...when it when its 5:00 or 6:00, etc...the hour hand is actually in front of the hour to which it is supposed to read by about a quarter of the distance. how should I fix this problem?
This is an hour wheel problem and can only be corrected by replacing the gears that are damaged then resetting the hands...only a professional trained watchmaker should handle this, there really is no other simple way to correct it

Well I'm, not an expert of fake Luminox, only the real ones, but I will tell you that a 'real' Luminox will be heavy to the touch, good quality steel...another thing that is a must if it is real is the glass tubes on the hands and on the dial at the hour markers...they are very small glass tubes that are not 'charged' by putting in light, they stay lit regardless of any surrounding factors...most fake watches will have 'painted' on glow onto the dial and especially the hands...this model also has a screw-down crown and sapphire crystal...hope this has helped...good luck :)
Pull out crown and turn counterclockwise..if hands wont move then you need to take to a reputabble jeweler to have repaired, you have either a set lever problem or there is rust in stem tube and wont allow it to turn...good luck :)
This movement has a really quirky thing going on, its one of the few movements that you can actually turn the hor hand to set the day forwards or backwards...so on a day that goes from the 31 to the 1st it will advance fine, if there is no 31 for that month you can turn the hour hand 2 cycles and it will advance through the 34, continue to the 1st and set time...date can also be set by turning the hour hand backwards thru the dates...go ahead it doesnt 'hurt' the movement a bit, its made for this...so in oither wiords, when you get a new cell and the date is lets say the 15th and your watch says its the 2nd, just advance the hour hand through until you hit 15 and yoiu are good to go...hopefuly this help and didnt confuse much...good luck:)
Because of the way they work, it's quite hard for quartz movements to run consistently slow - so if you find one getting behind, it's usually a sign that it's stopping intermittently.
It would do no harm to check that the crown is properly pushed in after you've reset it, but my guess is that the watch will benefit from a new battery.
