    Talis 25 jewel - how to set day/date

    I bought this as part of a job lot of "junk" watches but it's running fine and keeping good time - but I can't for the life of me see how to set the day and date.

    Help!

    The movement looks to be a Felsa cal. 4466, which would be correct for a Day/Date display. I don't know offhand just how the setting operates on these, but you may be able to use this info to search on Google, etc.

    There's generally only a few ways - pulling the crown out to the first or 2nd (if there is one) setting position and turning either way, or perhaps one of the displays is set by pushing the crown in or pulling it out.

    Thanks for your reply. Yes, those were the ways I were aware of but I've tried them and no go - don't want to force anything.

    Ill use your info re the movement to do some research - ta.

    To set the day/date you turn the crown back and forth between 9-12 o clock. Remember that you need to turn the crown to midnight before you can change the day/date so first turn the crown clockwise until the day and date change.

    Ok. Now I can set this watch I'm pleased with the result for under $10.

    Can anyone tell me the age of this Talis? It has a 60s or 70s look but seems quite large for that era (38 mm).

    I found this nice brochure for sale and you can see some picture of watches made by them.
    Antiques Atlas - Talis Watch Co., Export Catalogue Of C.1930's

    Thery didn't only sell their own branded watches.
