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!

Date changes at mid day not at mid night.


Your watch is 12 hours out of step.The date changes ever second rotation of the hour hand.

If you advance the time 12 hours, the date will change at midnight.

You may have to re-set the date.

The date on my Tissot PRC 100 changes either 1/2 day early or 1/2 day late. How can it be set so that the date changes at 12:00 am?


Your watch is 12 hours out, as it "thinks" that midnight is midday.

The solution is to wind your watch forward 12 hours and then the date will change at midnight.

I have a new tissot Prc100 T22268631 watch, but i don't know how to adjust the time and date. What will I do?


The usual way to adjust time and date is to screw out (not pull) the winder and rotate it backwards or forwards. The winder will have two "out"positions, one for the date and the other for the time. (the "screw" for the winder is to improve water resistance).

If you have already tried this and it does not work, then go to the Tissot web site "tissot.com", locate your nearest dealer and ask for advice.

Alternatively on the Tissot site find your watch under the heading "sport". To view all the watches in a section move your cursor along the dots, this moves the images along to find the one you want.

Select the PRC100 and details of your watch appear and at the bottom of the menu on the left hand side select "user manuals".

Click on "download" on the right and instructions will appear

I guess you never overhauled your watch.Every mechanism has it's limits - so does the watch movements. Your watch has ETA Swiss made mechanical movement which is very good and reliable, but you have to take care of it from time to time. Mechanical movements are designed to last almost forever if they are looked after and yours isn't an exception. Bring it down to the local watchmaker and ask to overhaul it. It will run as new again and will not let you down. It is recommended to overhaul mechanical watches every 4-6 years. If this will be done, your watch will happily tick-tock on your grand-grand-grand-grand-grand-grand children's wrist and they will remember you with a few good words and respect.

Date function notworking properly


Do as follows:
1) At any time of the day pull the crown out and advance watch hands forward for EXACTLY 12 hours ( for example: if it's 6.35 on your watch, then after advancing hands it will be 6.35 again, just minute hand will be forwarded clockwise 12 full circles, while hour hand will be forwarded 1 full circle). Push the crown back in.
2) Pull the crown out to the date setting position and change to the desired date. Pull the crown back in.
Now your watch will be changing dates at midnight continuosly.

Rate me, please.

I am trying to reset my T Touch watch from Tissot and can not find book. need to reset time and also how to convert from metric to US standards, like ferinhit and from meters to feet.


SET TIME:
1. Activate Crystal
2. Tap center of screen until digital time comes up
3. Press and hold top button (+) until watch beeps, display will be flashing
4. Use + and – key to adjust time. If several hours off, hold appropriate key and
after first hour passes, only the hour hand will move.
5. Make sure the digital display shows A or P for AM or PM
6. When finished, touch center of screen again.

SET DATE:
1. Activate Crystal
2. Tap center of screen until date appears
3. Press and hold top + button until watch beeps and display flashes.
4. Use + and – buttons to change date to correct one.
5. Make sure to set time first, if you set date first, you run the risk of the date
changing at noon rather than midnight.
