    Seiko 7s26 adjusting day by turning hands?

    I have a new Seiko snkk27 with a 7s26 movement. It has the day and date setting.

    I pulled the crown out 1 click to adjust the date. I didn't know that you could adjust the day of the week by turning the crown backwards.

    So I pulled the crown out 2 clicks to adjust the day of the week by turning the hands all the way around the dial for 6 days. So 6 times completely around to adjust the day.

    Is this bad for the watch?

    No, shouldn't be bad for the watch. Like you said, though, spin one way for day, the other way for date. You'll save a bunch of time. :)

    Thanks for the help. This is my first auto watch and I'm glad I got it. I'm obsessed with watches now and it's probably the only thing I've actually wanted to collect in the last 15 years

    Oh, boy....there goes your wallet. ;)

    First it's a Seiko 5, next thing you know it's a Grand Seiko. :)

    Back in the day when only posh folk could afford watches with fast set the only way of adjusting the date on the watches worn by us peasants was to advance them all the way round manually so I very much doubt that a modern movement will come to any harm if you do the same.

    That will be fine for the watch, it's a strong movement and that should be fine for any movement. Enjoy the strong automatic.
