    Confused Need help - Longines Flagship clicks twice when changing date

    Hi guys, I need your help on this. Here's what happened in details:

    A few days ago, while trying to change date & time for my wife's Longines Flagship (L4.274.4.276 with L592 movement), I accidentally quick set the date in 'danger zone' (around 1:50am, Longines' zone range in manual is 8pm - 3am) by only pulling the crown to date position instead of time position. When I turned the crown and realized that it was in the wrong position, I immediately stopped to leave the date in between (like between 3 and 4) and started to pull the crown out to set the time, and I did moved the time forward so that the date snapped forward to normal position. The date changing happens normally afterwards, I went to Longines service centre to have a quick chat with the service guy and he said the watch is ok as long as it still changes date normally.

    This afternoon when I try to change time again, I've noticed that the date got 'clicked' twice when changing. The 1st click happens as usual around 12:40am when the date officially changes, and the 2nd click happens around 2:20 (no date change whatsoever, just a click and the number got moved slightly a bit). I will try to post a video link in my next post since I just created my account.

    Is this normal? I don't know if this is something that already happened before the above incident, or this was due to the quick date setting in danger zone.

    My Oris Aquis Date doesn't have this occured but I understand every type of movement is different.

    Appreciate your thoughts and help on this!

    Might want to have it checked again just to be safe, IMHO.

    It’s not a cheapo watch so I’d have it checked out just to be sure.
