WATCH DATE CHANGES AT NOON – 12 HOURS AHEAD?

HOW TO FIX YOUR WATCH SO IT CHANGES AT MIDNIGHT INSTEAD OF NOON

The Best Chains to Ever Buy

Watch Date Changes At Noon Instead of Midnight

This is a very common problem that people have:

Wrong Date Change!

Their Watch Day (Sun, Mon, Tue, Wed, Thu, Fri, Sat), and the Watch Date (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31), changes to the NEXT Day and Date at 12 NOON instead of 12 MIDNIGHT, when it’s supposed to!

The reason is quite simple, the Watch Gears (Dials, Cogs) work on a 24 hour cycle (actual hours in a Day), versus just 12 hours (1-12).

If you were to open up your Watch, and look at the Movement (Guts of the Watch), you’d see something showing the Days and Date, as in the example image below…



Watch Date Changes At Noon Versus Midnight

Granted every Watch is different, but you get the meaning.

When your Watch switches at Noon instead of at Midnight, that means that your Watch Cycle is set 12 hours too fast! (Or 12 Hours too slow, depending on how you look at it).

Fixing This is EASY!

All you have to do is to turn the Hour Hand of your Watch, 12 Hours MORE! (Which is 12 Hours Ahead!)

So if it’s 2 o’clock in the Afternoon, spin the Hour Hand ahead 12 more hours until it reads 2 o’clock again. If it’s 11:30 in the morning, spin it all the way around again to 11:30 once more.

It’s That Simple!

Now, depending on when you do this (what part of the day or night), you’ll probably also have to readjust the Day and Date again. But don’t worry, the Hour Hand is now set properly, so once you reset the Day and Date to the correct Day and Date, then everything will work perfectly!

Spanish Anyone?

Do note that if your Watch Day is showing Spanish Days: DOM – DOMINGO (Sunday), LUN – LUNES (Monday), MAR – MARTES (Tuesday), MER – MIERCOLES (Wednesday), JUEV – JUEVES (Thursday), VER – VIERNES (Friday), SAB – SABADO (Saturday), instead of English, just pull the crown out, and rotate the Day ahead once, so that English is showing. That way when the Day rotates at Midnight, the proper language will still be displayed!

That’s That!

You Watch is now set right and come 12 Midnight, everything will flip over and change according to plan.

It Couldn’t Be Simpler!

Don’t you feel better? ;)

    My Timex expedition starts changing the date at 7 pm in the evening and by 11 pm it slowly completes the process of changing both date and day to the next date and day!!!! which is crazy as this should be happening after midnight!!!!
    Is there any fix????

    • Hi Jayanta, it sounds like you’re going to need a new movement. I would take it into a jewelry store, for them to send it out to get an estimate to fix. That way you can find out what’s truly wrong with it, and how much it will be to fix. You’ll be able to either tell them “Yes, do the work”, or “No, send it back”. -Richard

  6. Thanks the trick worked on my Tissot. Cheers.
