According to Stella, the new day begins at 4:20am
on July 31, 2014
I chose this watch because it had a more modest amount of crystals as well as the date and weekday feature. I work overnight in an industrial setting, so I need something sturdy and reliable.
I ordered from the jewelry counter at Macy's because they had none in stock. When it arrived, I was disappointed to see that the individual links are stamped and folded stainless steel rather than solid cast stainless (my former Fossil purchased in 2003 was solid stainless). I put it on and headed off to work.
When midnight passed, the weekday and date failed to change. I have discovered that this watch moves to "half past Tuesday" at 1:30am on Wednesday morning and that Wednesday and the next calendar date are not set to begin until 4:20am on Wednesday morning. All night long I am writing dates and times on forms so I would not recommend this watch for anyone who is required to be precise in timekeeping overnight (I.e. Shipping/receiving or nursing).
I returned this item to Macy's and went to another store to inspect an identical watch. The identical watch performed the exact same way. I have come to the conclusion that my good friends at Fossil have designed this watch so that it does not confuse drunk people. It's a thoughtful gesture, however it is of no use to me.
