pull the crown out as far as it will go. the watch
will not run when the crown is in this "set"
position. if the watch has a "screwdown locking
crown," you may have to "unlock" it
before you can pull the crown out. to do this, rotate
the crown counter-clockwise (toward the bottom of
the watch.) this unlocks the crown. once it is unlocked,
gently pull the crown out as far as it will go. then,
rotate the crown clockwise (toward the top of the
watch) so the hands advance past the 12 o'clock position.
if the day/date changes you are in the am position,
if the day/date does not change you are in the pm
position. proceed to set the correct time and push
the crown all the way back in. note: it is best to
set the time and date in the am for instant day/date
how to set the day/date on an analog watch
to set the day/date on an analog watch, gently pull
the crown out to
the first click position. rotate the crown clockwise
(toward the top of the watch face). the date on the
watch will advance. if the number showing in the window
is too high, go past "31," and the counter
will start at "1" again. if your watch also
displays a day-of-the-week, set this by rotating the
crown counter-clockwise (toward the bottom of the
watch face). the day- of-the-week will advance, going
past sunday and restarting at monday, if necessary.
stop one day before the correct day-of-the-week.
next, pull the crown out another stop and turn it
clockwise so the hands move forward. when you pass
12, the day and date should change automatically to
the correct date. if you are setting the watch before
noon, stop as soon as you get to the correct time
and push the crown all the way back in. if you are
setting the watch after noon, go past 12 again before
you stop at the correct time and push the crown all
the way back in. if the watch is a "screwdown
locking crown," relock the crown after setting
the correct time by pressing down on the crown as
you turn it clockwise.
