the crown at the 2 o'clock position is for adjusting the time and date.

1) unscrew the crown by turning counter-clockwise until you feel the crown 'pop' out slightly. this is called the '0' position, you can manually wind the mainspring at this position.

2) from the '0' position, if you pull on the crown gently again, you will feel it click. this is the '1' position and you can adjust the hr and minute hands

3) from the '1' position, if you pull the crown out a little more, you will feel another click. this is the '2' position and you can adjust the date. warning: never adjust the date between the hours of 10pm-2am.

after adjusting the date or time, make sure you press the crown in and securely screw the crown clockwise to ensure it remains water-resistant.

the crown at the 4 oclock position adjusts the inner bezel.

thanks for the reply

i figured it would be the same way as my omega, but it won't go to "2".

it's stuck at adjusting the time........it won't pull out any longer.

the above is mainly for ETA movements or ETA based movement only.

In brief, the date wheel is 'locked' in preparation to move to the next number. Hence, by forcefully turning and trying to adjust it, you just might break something.

In technical terms.......oops, I am not that technical o|

yeah, i'm not technical either. when i first got my pilot chrono, i adjusted the time- at the wrong time- 500.00 bucks and several weeks later i got it back. not between 10-2... :-(
