Set the reference time:
- Unscrew the crown and pull it out to position 2.
- Make sure that the bezel is in the home position. The triangle is pointing at 12 o’clock.
- Turn the crown to set the reference time. The hours are read from the bezel, the minutes from the dial as normal.
Is it bad to let automatic watches stop?
It’s not bad to let your automatic watch stop. Automatic watches are perfectly safe when stopped – that is to say that the movement doesn’t run anymore because the mainspring is fully unwound. Just wind again the next time you want to wear it, and you’re good to go.
What happens if you wind a watch the wrong way?
Wearing the watch while winding can accidentally pull the crown out, or cause you to over wind. The angle you are moving the crown at can cause stress on the movement. Removing the watch before setting both the time or winding will allow you to feel the resistance and pull the crown out at the right angle.

Fixing this is easy. All you have to do is to turn the hour hand of your watch, 12 hours more (which is 12 hours ahead). So if it’s 2 o’ clock in the afternoon, spin the hour hand ahead 12 more hours until it reads 2 o’ clock again. If it’s 11:30 in the morning, spin it all the way around again to 11:30 once more.
