Quartz watch date not changing

Recommended Posts

On a Pulsar 7T62, the date can be changed manually, turning crown at position 1, but the date doesn't change automatically at midnight. Can anyone tell me what the problem is likely to be and how to fix it?

as above sounds like its only engaging when you pull the crown to do it manually, worn teeth stripped teeth who knows.

I never attempt to change the date manually from 9 pm to 3 am because it can damage the auto change mechanism.  If you can imagine the auto gear engaged (or starting to) and then somebody tries to manually change the date, something has got to give and it's usually the weakest point (thin plastic date wheel!).  Do it early or leave until into the following day.  When initially setting a date, make sure that the watch is in am or pm mode and adjust accordingly, or it will change 12 hours out of synch.

Yes, I'm aware of that danger. The damage was done before it came to me.
