20 Most Recent Seiko SGG786 Watch for Men Questions & Answers

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.

Hi Rsomekh-
I found this link.

On page 35, there is a section on "Setting the LCD Contrast".

Hope this helps.

I found a way to get my second hand ‘unstuck’. It would only wiggle when I pressed the button to show the charge. After replacing the capacitor and reassembling very carefully, I pulled out the crown halfway and turned it to advance the date by several days at once. The second hand started moving again right away. It was advancing a second at a time not two, so it had charge. When I checked the amount it showed almost full (new capacitor was already charged).
