Great information. Is there any danger of harming the movement by turning the crow too quickly?Hi, and welcome to the Forum. Most Russian watches don't have quick set dates, so you have to do it the long way, unfortunately! Wind the hands round until you reach "midnight" , and the date will change.When this has happened, wind the hands backwards to 8 o'clock (some watches will work going back to 9 o'clock), then wind them forward to "midnight" again, and the date will change once more. Carry on doing this until you reach the required date - and don't worry about winding the hands backwards - they are built to accept this (like some vintage Omegas are). Best of luck. ;-)
I wouldn't think so. Like all Russian/CCCP watches, the Vostoks are very robust, and built to last, and I'm sure they cater for people winding at different speeds. The only problem I have if I wind backwards too quickly is that I suddenly find I am at 4 o'clock instead of 8 o'clock!!:-D :-DGreat information.
