20 Most Recent Citizen Eco Drive Perpetual Calendar BL5334 04E Gents Watch Questions & Answers

Mechanically operated date changes occur at 12 O'clock. If your watch thinks it is midnight when it is noon then it will change date.

The solution is to wind your watch on 12 hours.

The point of a radio-controlled watch is that you should not have to move the hands manually. It is meant to respond to a time signal send from various places in the USA, UK, Germany, Japan and (I think) China.
The signal's strength varies considerably, depending on where you are located and the ambient temperature. It may need some application and persistence to get the watch synchronized with the signal, this will cause the hands to move to the correct local time - even then it may need correction if you are in a different UTC time zone or on Daylight Saving Time (DST) locally. Not knowing the make complicates the validity of any information.

I have found that the sync signal is broadcast on the hour for about five minutes and is best received at night where the signal travels further.
Ensure your watch is fully charged and leave your watch by a window overnight for best results.
If you still have difficulty, use an internet search to find the nearest broadcast station to where you are and work out which direction-facing window is best sited to face it.

I have two RC watches - one Citizen and one Casio. One likes to have the left side of the watch facing the window and the other favours the 12 o'clock facing the window, As I don't know the make of your watch I would recommend trying to place it in various orientations until you find one that works for you. I have found the whole set up performs best in cold air situations - and so are more reliable in the winter.

Guessing further, If you bring up the signal display function it may force the watch into signal sync mode - always remembering the 'on the hour' signal broadcasts. You may also find a way of adjusting the hour to suit if it differs for you once it is synced.

Best check out the Citizen website, or vintage watch sites. :-)

It will be very difficult if you don't have the right tools
You would need a hand press of the right size. You would need a tool to open the case back, you would need to know how to remove the crown and stem in order to remove the dial with the movement. It would be also a good idea to have it tested for water resistance and you would need a special aparatus to do that. You may also need to replace the I ring or gasket.

On the bottom of the battery there is a connector with a nub sticking out in one direction only on the bottom and one on the opposite side that juts out and then up. The nub that does NOT stick up should line up with the tiny arrow that is in the battery slot, and you will notice a tiny slot on the opposite side for the other one that juts up. it should stick up and is suppose to touch the back plate of the watch i believe.
