How to adjust the time on a watch

Many of you wear a Charlie Paris watch, but when the time change  happens, you're wondering how to adjust your watch. So in this article we'll explain how to change the time of your watch.

  1. How do you set the time on your watch?
  2. How do you set the time on your watch with a screwed-up crown?

 

1. Set the time on your watch

For a quartz watchas a automatic watch, the procedure is the same to set the time.

How to set the time on a watch

 

1 - Pull the crown in position 2.  You know you're in position 2 when the trotter stops turning

2 - Turn the crown to set the time as you wish.

3 - When you're done, press the crown to put it in position 0. Make sure the crown is properly engaged, it is the crown that guarantees the waterproofing of your watch

 

2. Set the time with a watch with a screwed crown

If like our diving watch Concordia, your watch uses a screwed crown, please follow the same instructions as before, except that you have to unscrew the crown of your watch before you can pull the crown and set the time. To make sure you don't damage the screw step and your watch, when you review it take this simple precaution: use the thumb and forefinger, press the crown against the screw step and turn it down (anti-clockwise). After a little while you will hear and feel a "click" which will mean that the crown is well engaged, you can then screw it (clockwise) with peace of mind.
