    Manuals for automatic watches rarely contain any unique information.

    I'm sure if you posted a pic of your watch we would be able to supply any info you need.

    OK, got it!

    Now, what do you need to know? Anything specific, or do you just need to know how to use/set the watch in general?

    Your watch is an "Automatic" which means that normal wearing on your wrist will wind the mechanism and keep it running. If you don't wear it, it will eventually run down. No problem, just reset it again when you want to wear it and you're good to go.

    First thing you want to do is pull the crown out to its furthest position. This is the time setting position. Turn the crown in the direction that makes the hands turn clockwise and set the time for 6:30 - doesn't matter whether it's AM or PM.

    Next, gently push the crown in one detent position. This is the Day and Date setting position. Gently turn the crown either clockwise or counterclockwise until either the Day or the Date changes. Continue turning until the Day or Date that is changing is one day BEFORE what you want finally set on the watch. Now turn the crown the other way to change the Day or Date that did not just change until it also is one day BEFORE what you want finally set.

    Next, pull the crown out again to its furthest position. Turn the crown so the hands turn clockwise past midnight (you will see the date change to the date you want) and as you continue advancing the hands, the Day will also change to the Day you want. Continue turning until you are about 30 minutes before the time you want finally set on your watch.

    Gently push the crown in one detent position to the Day/Date set position, then gently push it in one more detent position. This is the position in which you can manually wind your watch. Gently turn the crown clockwise about 40 turns. As you are turning, if the seconds hand was not moving before, you should see it start to move now.

    After winding the watch, pull the crown out to its furthest position. In this position, the seconds hand may or may not stop. Either one is OK. If the seconds hand does stop, push the crown back in to restart the seconds hand and then pull the crown out to its furthest position when the seconds hand reaches 12 so the seconds hand stops at the 12 position. Turn the crown so the hours and minutes are set to the next correct hour and minute and then push the crown in all the way to start your watch running when it is exactly that time. If the seconds hand did NOT stop when the crown was pulled out to its furthest position, simply turn the crown until the hours and minutes are correct then push the crown in all the way to complete the process.

    I don't think your watch has a screw-down crown, but if it does, you will have to unscrew it (counterclockwise) before you can pull it out and then will have to screw it back down (clockwise) when you are done setting the watch.

    Do NOT change the Day or Date when the time is between 9:00 PM and 4:00 AM. This could damage the Day/Date changing mechanism.

    Turning the hands backwards to set/reset the time is OK if only for an hour (e.g. STD time to DST time) or less as long as the time is after 5:00 AM and before 9:00 PM. It is always safe to change time by advancing the hands clockwise.

    Wearing the watch for 8 hours or more per day should be enough to keep the watch running for 30 hours or more.

    Avoid shocks, avoid water. Other than that it's pretty much wear it and enjoy it.

    It looks like your watch is an older watch. It may require professional cleaning and adjustment. If you wear it for awhile and the timekeeping is way off, or simply erratic, it would probably be a good idea to have a professional watchmaker look at it.

    If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.
