Pull out the crown of your analog watch and turn it to position 2. This is the silver or gold dial located on the right side of your watch. The positions are 1, 2 and 3. When pulled out, the first notch is position 1, the second notch is position 2, and so on.

Turn the crown clockwise or counter clockwise to set your preferred date.

Once the desired date is located, push the crown back into place to set.
