Day Hand between two days? Here is how to fix this,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Tommy Hilfiger Men's 1710294 Stainless Steel Watch with Brown Leather Band (Watch)
When I set the time of my new watch I've done something wrong so that the day was always between two days, which is bad.
To fix this, you have first to investigate where the day is beeing changed by the clock. It does so in 2 steps for me. 1st step at around 02am and the 2nd step at around 04am.
You have to find the 2nd step by forwarding the time (clockwise).
If the clock did step 2, rotate the crown counter-clockwise and bring the time BEFORE the 2nd step. When turning the time counter clockwise, the watch won't turn back the day hand!
Now as you have turned the watch before the 2nd step, you can now turn it clockwise and bring it after the 2nd step. After that your day-hand will point exactly at the current day.
Sorry for my bad English, I am from Germany.
Ps: I wouldn't recommend to turn the watch counter-clockwise at all because it makes some weird sound and the timezone-cycle doesn't look happy as well with that.

That is a great observation! I have had watches with the day on them since I was 12 years old, particularly an automatic Hamilton watch I bought 22 years ago which will stop if you do not use it for a few days, so I have always had to adjust the day. To change the day I fast forwarded the time until I saw the day change (on the Hamilton watch it is at 12 AM, but not all watches change then -- my original Citizen watch I got back in 1979 when I was 12 changed at 2 AM), then changed the day to the appropriate day, then adjusted the time.
And yes, watches should generally never be turned counter-clockwise.
