Time and calendar settings

Table handle:
 1. When the second hand points to the 12 o’clock position, pull it out to the second position.
 2. Rotate to either side to set the time and date.
 3. Push it back completely according to the hour signal.
 a. The date begins to shift between the hours of 11pm and 1am. If the watch is in operation, if you turn the crown clockwise to move the hands forward, the time zone between 9 pm and 10 pm rotates the crown counterclockwise to move the hands forward, you need to pay attention to the following.
 AM / PM inspection
 When setting the hour hand, check that the AM / PM setting is correct.
 When turning the hands forward to set the time, let the hour hand pass the 1 o’clock mark. The date changes, indicating that the time zone is set in the morning. If the date does not change, the time zone is in the afternoon.
 When you turn the hand back to set the time, let the hour hand pass the 9 o’clock mark. If the date returns to one day, the time zone is set to the afternoon. If the date does not change, the time zone is in the morning.
 b. When setting the minute hand, move it forward 4 to 5 minutes beyond the reserved time to return it to the correct time.
 c. After setting the time and date, if the calendar display is not correct, confirm whether the AM (AM) / PM (PM) setting is wrong. Even if the AM / PM setting is correct and the calendar display is still incorrect, it means that there is a problem with the setting of the initial position of the calendar. At this point, follow the steps in ‘How to confirm and adjust the calendar’ to set the initial position of the calendar.
 How to confirm and adjust the calendar
 1. Start checking and adjusting the calendar. Pull the crown out to the first compartment.

 2. The initial position of the second hand

 Press the button for 2 seconds. The second hand starts moving and stops at the 12 o’clock position (initial position). The numbers in the calendar box will automatically move and stop to show 1.
 If the second hand is not set to the 12 o’clock position, turn the crown clockwise or counterclockwise to set the second hand to the 12 o’clock position.
 After turning the crown until it clicks, the second hand moves forward or backward at 1-second intervals.
 3. Initial setting of the calendar

 Press the button once. The numbers in the calendar box start to rotate and stop (the numbers stay on 1)
 If the number is not set to ‘1’, turn the crown clockwise or counterclockwise until 1 appears in the calendar frame, and slowly turn the crown to center the calendar frame.
 4. Current date

 Press the button once. The second hand starts moving backwards and stops at the 9 o’clock position. The number in the calendar box will return to the current date.
 If the number in the calendar box does not return to the current date, turn the crown clockwise or counterclockwise to set the number to the current date.
 If you keep turning the crown, the number moves quickly. To stop the number movement, turn the crown in the opposite direction until it clicks
 5. Current month

 Press the button once. The second hand starts moving forward and stops at 10 o’clock. The month now appears in the calendar box
 If the current month does not appear in the calendar box, turn the crown clockwise or counterclockwise to set the number to the current month (the number varies between 1 and 12).
 6. Current year

 Press the button once. The second hand starts moving forward and stops at 11 o’clock. The last two digits of the year now appear in the calendar box.
 If the current month year does not appear in the calendar box, turn the crown clockwise or counterclockwise until the last two digits of the current year appear.
 7. After confirming and adjusting the calendar

 Push the crown back to its normal position. The watch will resume normal operation (the hands will show the current time again). The number in the calendar box returns to the current date.
 More watch knowledge is in the watch home.
