IDK... but it always helps to post a picture of the item in question.. and the movement. They are not all the same.Help! I cannot get the day to move when turning the crown in the out position. The day indicator is just stuck in the 'park' position after changing the battery. Can anyone tell me how to get this to work?
You're welcome.I recently had my Timex battery changed by my local Fred Meyer Jewelers (Oregon) who sent the watch out. "I assumed" they would set the perpetual calendar properly. I was wrong. Your post was REALLY helpful.
Have you tried this:Also, all the paperwork I've been able to find so far on this T2N613 says if the month has less than 31 days you have to st it manually. WTF? It's an intelligent quartz! It should be pre-programmed until the year 2100, right?
INTRODUCTION With your watch’s perpetual calendar feature, the date does not need adjustment until 2100. The watch automatically accounts for short months and leap years, always showing the correct day and date. The day and date were preset at the Timex factory. You only need to adjust the time.

The date hand shows the offset: 1 = 1 year after leap year; 2 = 2 years after leap year; 3 = 3 years after leap year; 4 = leap year. Push the crown in when done and the
Yeah, I've looked at all of those. The W-183 is obviously not the watch in the picture above and the W-268 users guide is just that, not a true "factory" settings manual. Pretend I just put a battery in this watch and sent it to the factory. I want the instructions that the factory uses to re-set everything. I still think this should keep track of the correct days in the month since it's intelligent quarts, don't you?
