Hi all, having just had the crown refitted to my watch after it popped out and stored for a few years l find l have forgotten how to set the date without damaging the mechanism. It has a day / date combination and l can, by trial, change the date by winding and rewinding the day setting between 10 and 2 to get the date to change over but it doesn't seem to engage properly. The option of pulling the crown out to a third setting doesn't seem to be there and l am reluctant to pull it out with any force. So apart from waiting for the correct date and adjusting the day accordingly can anyone confirm the correct setting technique ?. By the by, l took it in for a service as well but the watchmaker said the mechanism is in fine condition and doesn't require one. A little fettle on the balance and it is good to go again. Not bad after 40 odd years untouched !
