How to set the time and date

The watch is provided with a date function and is so designed that the date changes once every 24 hours.

The date changes around 12 o’clock midnight. If AM/PM is not properly set, the date will change at 12 o’clock noon.

CAUTION

Do not amend the date when the watch is displaying between 8 PM and 2 AM.
Amending the date during this time period may cause problems such as the date failing to change the next day.

  1. Pull out the crown to the first click.

  2. For models with screw down crown, please unlock the crown before operating it.
