Sometimes the Time Setting Button on this model will get stuck or rusted. If your time setting dial is having problems, then this guide can teach you about opening up your watch carefully and identifying the internal components of the time setting dial. Doing so, you will then be able to clean or replace the dial and get back on time!

Be careful when handling the pin and scissors as both objects are sharp and be gentle when pulling the dial out, forcing it might cause internal damage.
