Question about Festina 6503-I Watch for Men
Mcdevito75 here, Most day / Date or just date watches with a stem (winder) even if they are quartz have a 2 position stem. Smply slip a fingernail under the crown and lift to it"s first position, this should allow you to change the date with haveing to go the 24 hours but remember the date cahnges at 12--1 Midnite, Best bet, change the date to the date before the date you want then go the 24 hours this way the date will change at midnite and not 12 noon.

SOURCE: Day/Date change
The date on mechanical and automatic watches change normally between 2-4am because this is normally when people sleep. It is not broken or in need of overhaul. It has to change sometime and that is what they have tradionally used as a time for the date to change. Also remember it is normal for an automatic or mechanical watch to loose or gain time friction is the culprit here since the gears do mesh with each other.
Fine watches like Rolex and Omega are beautiful watches but expensive to have cleaned. It should be cleaned about every 10 years or if it starts to loose a lot of time.
Incidently most agree that the Omega speedmaster manual wind (The watch that went to the Moon) is the most accurate of the bunch and is very sought after by collectors!

Testimonial: "Thankyou! This has appeased me!"
Of course, there is the way to do that. Try to pull out crown carefully and you will notice that there are two positions (clicks). Second click is when the crown is fully pulled out and the watch hands move by turning crown. But there is first click (lets say - crown is pulled just half way out). In this position the date/day can be quickly changed by turning the crown. Crown=winder.

mcdevito75 here, It takes practice, the crown does have 2 positions, slip a fingernail just under the crown and lift to it"s first position this will allow you to change the DATE (number) once you get the correct Date, push tje crown back in, NOW! pull the crown out to set the DAY itself and the time. On some watches the crowns first position allows both the day and date to be changed by turning the crown in it"s first position clock wise and counter clock wise.
