Hi people, just bought a seamaster quartz and date on the watch was 15th so didnt bother to read the manual and turned the crown by maybe 30 rotations to get 29th real fast. Is there any consequence by doing so? leaded to internal damaged? Thanks!

It is possible if you are really rough with it but if your watch is still working properly, it no doubt, is fine. Perhaps in the future though you might like to treat it a bit better because parts for Omegas are very expensive.

Thanks for the answer, but i was turning the timing position fast forward 24 hours at a time to change the date, i am an idiot o|. should have read the manual first set crown into another position to change the date.

Do not worry, the only thing damaged is your skin on finger and you got sore on muscles. Some old watches do not have quick set feature, special tool was made to help you wind the stem.
