This is the best watch I've ever owned but beware don't lose your instruction manual there are 49 pages of info. Okay to solve your problem goes as follows:

1. Looking at the face of your watch, below the time and above the date is a mode indicator bar.
2. Make sure the marker is pointing to the time segment, if not use top right hand button to move it to that segment.
3. once the marker is facing "Time" press and hold top left button for two sec's.
4. The seconds field will now flash, press top left again, minutes will flash, to set the minutes use the lower left or right to go up and down the minute scale.
5. When minutes are done, press top left again, now do the same with the hours segment.
6. From here on just keep pressing top left till you have covered all required fields, when finished press top right to go to normal mode. I've had mine 10 years now and its still as good as new.
7. Bye Victor

Enjoy your watch its the tops if you still struggle go here and download the demo, you will need a minimum of 3MB virtual memory. I would suggest following my instruction a few times to get used to it before blowing your mind with all the info available here. http://www.suunto.com/suunto/main/article_1column.jsp?CONTENT%3C%3Ecnt_id=10134198673939520&FOLDER%3C%3Efolder_id=9852723697223448&PRODUCT%3C%3Eprd_id=845524442490206&bmUID=1229663018479

I need to change the date


Changing the date for the FT500WVB watch is easy. Just pull out the stem of the watch to its first stop. Then turn the stem counter clockwise a couple of twists and the displayed date will increment (that is increase) by one day and you will hear a little click. Keep twisting the stem counterclockwise and the date will increase by one each time with a little click. Stop when you reach the correct date and push the stem back in to its fully seated rest position. Note- be careful not to change the date when the watch displays a time between 9pm and 1 am as setting the date in this time range may cause the watch to increment the date at noon rather than midnight.

Note also that if you want to set the time you just pull out the stem to its second stop position and twist the stem to advance the position of the hands of the watch. Then when the time is set, push the stem back in to its lowest rest position. So remember- first stem stop sets the date and second stem stop sets the time. That's it.

I have an eco drive and recently in trying to set the clock back to regular time, I must have done something wrong. The time is correct but the date, and day are one day forward. How do I correct this?


the crown of the watch has two clicks, pull it gently once and you can set the date and day, pull it gently again a second time and you can set the time. The proper way to set the time and date is to set first the day,date late at the actual date, then move the hands around the clock until the date change at 12 oclock this is evening, then moving the hands around until you reach the actual time. By doing so you will set the day, date and time in syn to 24 hrs change.

example: you want to change it to sat 12th 11am
set the day and date to fri 11th
then move the hands around clockwise until the day and date change at 12 oclock continue moving the hands until you reach 11am

I need to change the date on my watch and don't have the instruction manual. Thanks!


mcdevito75 here, Sounds like you have the time set, but the date is a fifferent matter, Here"s what to do, the stem (winder) of your watch has 2 positions, slip a fingernail just under the stem, and gently lift the stem to it;'s first position, this position allows you to change the date without so many cycles of the entire watch, it"s a little tricky but you"ll get used to it. Once you get this first position set the date to 1 day before the date you want, now pull the stem out to set the time of day, go thru 1, 24 hour cycle to set the date you want and time of day. The date is now set and will change on time, approx. Mid nite. Hope this helps.

Date on my watch


It sounds like your still off by 12 hrs. You can usually set the date between 12 am and 11:59 am on most watches, but the best thing to do in this case is to set the date right after midnight, to be sure.

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.

Setting time on Seiko watch 7N43


Mike 1935 if your watch has hands only & no digital display the crown where you set the watch pulls out half a click to set the date and should pull out a little further to set the time try that.

bjbc I am assuming your seiko watch is a digital watch. Try holding in the top rt button if its the watch I think it is it should change to 12yr time.
