Tips & Warnings
  • Do not set the date or time between 8 p.m. and 3 a.m. to avoid damage to your Geneva watch. The gears sit too close together during these times.
  • If your Geneva watch becomes wet, wipe it dry as soon as possible. Keep your watch away from saunas and hot tubs, as the extreme heat diminishes the watch's water resistance.

HOW TO SET DAY / DATE ON AN ANALOG (STEM) WATCH


mcdevito75 here, Over Forty (40) years ago, watch manufactures added, to some of their ANALOG (wind up) and almost all of their DIGITAL (button display) watches the FEATURE of the, MONTH or DAY of the WEEK and the DATE, not only was the time of day available but also the DATE which you no longer had to go searching for, it was readily available on your wrist. The PROBLEM came with SETTING the CORRECT MONTH or DAY of the week and the DATE as some MONTHS HAD 31 DAYS rather than 30 DAYS, this meant you had to CYCLE your watch at least 62 times to get to the CORRECT DATE and mant times, when you finally did reach the CORRECT DATE, the day of the week was off, meaning more CYCLES thru the 24 hours.-------- HERE is the EASY way to SET the MONTH or DAY / DATE on your QUARTZ / MECHANICAL (STEM) watch without haveing to go thru the 24 hour cycle so many, many times. Not only is this, WEAR on your fingers, you can also damage your watch with some many cycles of the 24 hours to SET the correct MONTH or DAY / DATE. ------ HERE ARE THE BASICS,---------- Your ANALOG or STEM watch either QUARTZ or MECHANICAL should have a TWO (2) position STEM we are only familiar with the ONE (1) position we use to set the TIME, there should be TWO (2) positions to the STEM. First pull out the STEM to adjust the MONTH or DAY depending on your watches display, if your watch DISPLAYs the DAY of the week, set the DAY to one (1) DAY before the DAY you want, don"t worry about the DATE (number) yet. Once you have the MONTH or DAY set, push the STEM back into the watch, NOW with a finger nail just under the STEM (usually from the back of the stem as there is more room) gently lift the STEM to it"s first position, It may take some practice so be patient, once the STEM is in it"s first position you should be able to turn the STEM to adjust the DATE (number), if so Adust the DATE (number) to ONE (1) DATE before the DATE you want, This way your watch will be adjusted to change the DAY / DATE at the correct time. Once you have the DATE (number) adjusted to ONE (1) DATE before the DATE you want, push the STEM back into the watch, NOW pull the STEM out to adjust the time, go thru the 24 hour cycle to adjust to the correct DAY DATE (number) and time of day.------------ Your QUARTZ or MECHANICAL (stem) watch is now adjusted to the correct DAY / DATE and will change at the correct hour which is generally 12--1 AM.

Gossip watch, has only the stem ( no other stem or buttons) watch has small dials one with day of week, one with date, I don't how to change thEM. Thank you


If you have only the stem to set your watch, then you have very few options.

I would expect your watch crown (stem) to have three positions;-

1) The home (normal position); this is used to wind the watch.

3) Fully out; this one is usually for setting the time; clockwise to advance and anticlockwise for retarding the the hands.

2) Between 1) and 3); this setting should be for setting the day of the week and the date. You will have to experiment to find which way tor turn for date and day.

You should have the DAY or Month and correct date and your watch will change the DAY, DATE at the proper time also.

How do I adjust the time and date on my Timex Expedition watch


Hi, the upper of the two watch stems is turned counter clockwise (looking at the stem) until the desired function (i.e., format, date, time, chrono, timer) appears. To set that function, pull the upper stem out and turn CW to advance & CCW to go back. Once hours & minutes are set, the stem can be pushed in upon a mark to start at zero seconds. For the day of the week, turn the upper stem CCW until date appears. Pull out the stem, to detents or positions, and this will allow the day to be adjusted.

Take care

When I pull out the stem 1 notch I can only change the 1 to 31 date setting. When I pull out the stem to second notch this changes the hour and minute hands. I cannot figure out how to change the 1 to 24...


Try turning the stem the opposite direction. The last watch I had with that feature required a clockwise turn to advance the time or date and a counter clockwise turn to change the day of the week.

Setting month, date, and day of the week on non-digital watch


Try pulling the stem out. Turn the stem in the counter clock wise direction and see if that changes the date/day

Watch has correct day and date only 1/2 each day


The watch thinks at Noon it is really midnite, so you must scroll 12 hours ahead to repair this. There are usually 2 "clicks" on the stem of the watch when you pull it out, 1 will set time, 1 will set the day/date, be careful to pay close attention to which is happening when you pull out the stem, and setting should go well after that.
