    Date won't change at midnight?

    I have an Invicta 8926ob. Nh35a movement. I'm aware that everyone hates invicta, so we can skip that part. I can't get the date to change at midnight. Anyone know what I'm doing wrong? I've set it right at the change. I've set it a day ahead. no matter what I do, it changed at noon.

    Try to set the watch 12 hours ahead...your current "noon" becomes midnight, so the date will change...

    It changed at noon?

    Right, set the date to yesterday and wind the time on 'till it changes the date. The watch now thinks it is +/- midnight. Keep winding on 'till you are at the right time. If you are doing this in the afternoon go on beyond 12 noon to the right time.

    It should then work fine.

    I tried that first. I may have not gone far enough. And I'll try it right now and check back. But before I didn't see the date ever change. It's hacking, could the time set also disconnect the date wheel?

    You guys are right. I am an idiot. I just didn't go far enough ahead the first time. I thought I had gone past midnight twice but I guess I didn't. We'll see tonight at midnight if I got it fixed. Thanks.

    Glad you guys figured it out! I was going to suggest that the problem is that it's an Invicta but I thought better of it.

    No worries. It's a surprisingly common problem for which the solution is oddly widely unknown. It is also why no date watches rock!

    Yeah, I searched google and tried to turning the hands past 12, guess I didn't go far enough. I searched in here but my search didn't turn anything up. I'm new though. I may have searched improperly.
