Bill B. Wrote in reply to:waikato7 Wrote:I'm guessing if the watch has come to a stop thru not being wound, it would be ok to change the date 1st before winding? Or is that wrong?I may misunderstand your comment. But, the gears in the date change train are engaged between 20:00 and 02:00 regardless of whether or not the watch is running. If the hands are between these times, but the watch is stopped, I would not use the quick date option. The gears are still engaged and you can do damage.
