    Date Change on a Speedmaster Quartz

    Hi All. I recently purchased this truly nice Speedmaster. I went to change the date and it doesn't change at the first crown stop like I thought it would. The hour hand moves. I am wondering if that is how the date is changed on this movement? I don't know the movement #. I will be taking it in for a new battery tomorrow but, thought I could get a little insight regarding the correct movement operation. This appears to be a watch from the late 90's?????????? Wave face and back. Thanks for any help.

    When the hour moves, does it do so in one hour increments? If so, this is the quick set quartz movement, and yes, that is how the date is changed. It’s great for international travel.

    yes, those kind you just turn the hour hand- quickset version for its generation- around to the date you want. The minute hand remains still, then pull crown out again to set both....
    I have some Omegas which do this..like the prebonds and Polaris quartz models.

    Yep! My bad. For some reason I must have had "Speedmaster" on the brain.

    Yes, that is how the date changes. I am happy to see another Seamaster 120 on the forums. Mine makes it into rotation with my 2500 PO. I really enjoy the smaller size of the 120.
