I just got an older Tissot quartz with a moon phase display, but I have no idea how to set the moon phase. It seems that pulling the crown out halfway allows me to set the date, and pulling it out all the way allows me to set the time, but neither position seems to affect the little moon. Is there a standard way to do this on all watches, is it specific to a model, or do I have to take it to a watchmaker/jeweler? This is probably a really newbie-type question, but, well, that's me! Thanks for any help you can provide :)

The crown pulled out to the first stop controls the moon phase function on my Citizen quartz. Turning the crown counter-clockwise sets the date and clockwise takes care of the moon phase.

EDIT: Some watches have an inset button to handle the setting of moon phase functions. It would be flush with the case and you'd need a pencil point or something similar to push it - sort of like the reset button on electronic gear.
