    Had same problem. Posted solutions are close but names/placement of buttons was different for me. For me, use the mode button (lower left) to get to what you want to change, then press and hold set (top left) until it beeps and item blinks (such as the hour value). Use the start/stop button (top right) to change values. Keep using the mode button to go from hour to minute to date to day. When done, press set button again.

I think I figured it out by accident. Press and hold the top left button (mode) until the numbers start blinking. On mine this is the alarm time set. Press the mode button one more time to get to time set. The hour will be blinking. Press top right button (start/stop) to cycle through hour, minute, date, etc. and press bottom right button (adjust) to change the number which is flashing. Press mode to finish

Everyone's model of this watch seems to work a little differently. :) Here's what worked for me. My model has 4 buttons.

1. Press and hold mode (upper left). Seconds will blink.
2. Press lower left button (sorry, don't know the button's name). Hours will start to blink.
3. Press upper right button to move ahead one hour.
4. Press mode button again to return to standard operating mode.

Three different buttons for one simple operation...setting your watch for daylight savings time.

This watch is radio controlled & should automatically set itself. The signal comes from Colorado and is the strongest between the hours of 10:00 pm & 2:00am. Also weather can interfere with the signal so I tell people to give them a couple of days to pick up. It also helps to put the watch near a window to help pick up the signal. If you tried all these things & it still isn't right you can set if manually by doing the following.

To set watch press & hold the adjust button until the time digits start to flash.

Press start/stop or split/reset to set time go through 12 hours to get to AM/PM

Press mode to select date press start/stop or split/reset to set date go through 12 months to set year day will change automatically.

Press adjust when done.

My suggestion is to not buy this watch at all if you did take it back or throw it away its not worth the aggravation trying to figure it out as it is not user friendly because the instructions given do not match the watch!!!!

Why does the date on my seiko sne881 change at 12 noon?


probably because you have it set to 12 pm midnight and not 12 noon so at 12 noon it is actually midnight when the date will change
reset the time of the day to am or pm and any pm settings will change the date at 12 midnight.

Set date on 1440 sports watch 504-t5k085


My watch has model number 504-tsk085, labeled Timex 1440 Sports, and Timex provides the incorrect manual for it online. I wrote these instructions after careful experiment:

Upper left button: press to switch to a stopwatch, or...

Press and hold to enter alarm setting mode. Once flashing press again to enter time/date setting mode.
-- you can only do one or the other without exiting the setting
mode (time or alarm set).
- within the setting mode you use the two right side buttons
in obvious ways to set times/dates
Exit setting mode by pressing upper left again

Lower left button: light
Upper right button (when not setting time): reveal date while pressed

Lower right button (when not setting time): reveal alarm time while pressed.

ALSO: WHILE lower right button is pressed you can change alarm
on/off and chime on/off through the four possible settings by
secondarily pressing the upper right button repeatedly.

SETTING DATE JUST ROLEX


After you unscrew the crown it is already in winding position. If you pull the crown, it will go to the date setting position. Further pull of crown will set it in time setting position. Try to pull the crown till you get it in correct date setting position and change the desired date. Do not use the date setting between 10pm - 2am, as this can damage date mechanism. The best way is to pull out crown to the time setting position and set the time to 6.30(anytime) and then push the crown in to date setting position and change the date to the previous day's date. Then again pull the crown out to the time setting position and advance hands forwards (clock wise) till hands pass 12.00 (midnight) and the date changes automatically to the desired one, then adjust the time, push the crown fully in and screw the crown on.

Don't know how to set the date except by winding the time dial repeatedly past 12 to get to present date--must be an easier way


I presume that you are winding the watch 24 hours to change the date.

You can shorten the time it takes to change the dates in the following manner:-

Wind the watch until the date changes, then turn it back until it passes 12 again and then turn it forward. Each time it passes 12 the date should increase by a day.

You may have to experiment to find how far past 12 in both directions to get the date to change.

I have a Tissot Automatic PR 516 from the early 70s. Time is kept well. Date moves forward correctly but it is the wrong date. I am unable to turn back the date. I am able to turn back the day. Any...


The crown wheel (winder) should have 3 positions, (1) the normal winding position (3) fully out; at this position the watch stops and the time can be adjusted.

(2) This position is between the 1 & 2 and is used to adjust the day and date. If you wish to change the date by winding the crown backwards or forwards.

Since watches can very a little, if turning the crown when in position 2 the date does not change, pull the crown to position 3 and turn the hands until you pass the midnight position, when the date will change and then re-set the time. If you wish to advance the time more than one day, when it changes, wind the crown backwards past the midnight position and then wind it forwards again. Repeat until the correct date is showing and then re-set the time. The exact distance you need to turn the crown to change the date will have to be found by experimenting!

I have an eco drive and recently in trying to set the clock back to regular time, I must have done something wrong. The time is correct but the date, and day are one day forward. How do I correct this?


the crown of the watch has two clicks, pull it gently once and you can set the date and day, pull it gently again a second time and you can set the time. The proper way to set the time and date is to set first the day,date late at the actual date, then move the hands around the clock until the date change at 12 oclock this is evening, then moving the hands around until you reach the actual time. By doing so you will set the day, date and time in syn to 24 hrs change.

example: you want to change it to sat 12th 11am
set the day and date to fri 11th
then move the hands around clockwise until the day and date change at 12 oclock continue moving the hands until you reach 11am
