I recently (4 days ago) received my Steinhart from the good folks in Germany. I LOVE the looks and heft of this watch.
Here is my question though.....
I know that you are not supposed to set the date between the hours of 9-3. I am assuming they are referring to 2100-0300. So, when I set the time on the new Steinhart it was early afternoon on Thursday and proceeded to set the date also. If I remember correctly, the time of setting was mid-afternoon.... maybe 1400 to 1600 local. Don't remember exactly. The date was set at this time too.
Today, while the wife was writing a note for one of the kids for school, she asked me what the date was. When I looked at my new Steiny it showed the 22nd. Roh Oh. I knew that was not correct. So what is up with this. Why the correct date for 4 days and now it is (or was, because I reset the date this morning) off by one day?
I did a search function here and could not find anything definitive. I really hope I do not have to send my new beauty back
