    Selitta SW 240-1 question

    Howdy WUS. I just received a Hamtun Nanok that I bought on indiegogo some time ago, and have a few concerns. The first is a terrible crown - too small, hard to seat and turn. Probably just the way it is.

    The other problem is with the day date function. It has a Selitta SW 240-1. When setting the watch, the day and date flip at midnight, but only partially. The day is half turned and the date is half turned leaving a blank date. It stays that way until about 7 am. Sure doesnt sound right to me. I did some experimenting, and if I turn it to a few minutes before 12 and let it flip itself, it seems to flip correctly at midnight.

    Soooooo, what say you? Problem or just the way it is? I've emailed the maker, but I would expect communication to be slow or non existent based on other's posts I'm reading.

    Super shame, because I really like the aesthetics of this thing!

    Suggest setting the time tomorrow Friday August 1 at 09:00 AM. Assuming it sets correctly , wear it but leave it alone . Check the time and date somewhere around 12:30-01:00 AM early Saturday AM . While this is very basic, I sometimes can get screwed up overly fidgeting with a newly arrived timepiece, especially chronographs and those with other complications. Hope this works for you.

    I tried generally searching a bit. Some things that I noticed from other threads is power reserve, wheel teeth, and / or magnetized.

    Aside from the day issue... any major losses of time from what you can see overnight, if not topping up the wind a bit before midnight, when you check it again at 7 am?

    It is not normal but Ive seen it on this caliber a few times...It needs some fidgeting with the calendar wheels and discs ,but will not affect the overall running of the watch if it remains like this.

    Thanks for the feedback. Sorry to report back that my experimenting did not yield reliable results. I set this watch yesterday afternoon with the day date in the right spot, and it again did not flip correctly at midnight. It's now a little after 6 and still only half flipped. ☹️

    If you email the help account at Hamtun (and not Ross's account) I'm sure he'll get it sorted for you...

    Good advice.

    Doesn’t sound right to me. Best of luck with it.
