    I think you pull the crown out half way, turn the crown until the bottom dial goes to time, press top button pull out crown and turn dial. Think thats right but not 100%

    good looking watch though, heres mine

    Dunno if this is a little too 'poor man.'

    College junior, bought my first automatic watch as a gift to myself for landing my summer internship. :)

    Seiko 5 too poor man? The SNKH47 that I'm wearing right now sure hopes not. Congrats on your internship and first automatic!

    Thanks
    Thanks, I'm not really a citizen guy so I figured I'd test drive it. I looked at the watch and was baffled on how to correct it. The times right so that's good. Ill worry about the date another day. Thank you so much for helping out. Not even 15 minutes later someone asked the time and I didn't have to reach for my cell to tell them. Your watch is more suited for my tastes by the way.

    That is a beautiful watch! Is it an auto? The dark leather really makes it look great! any chance i can bother you for the model?
    No problem i hope it worked. I got the watch about two weeks ago. Macys was having a sale on watches and with all the discounts i ended up walking out the door with it for only 230. Its a major pain in the ass to set. And i don't understand what most of it does. I actually went in to get the gold one because i dont have any complete gold watches, but they didnt have it. The silver one looked great so i picked it up. From now on im sticking to simple watches though!

    FYI, all Seiko 5s are automatics.

    Nothing wrong with the Steinhart name. It's named after the founder/owner. I don't see a problem there.

    Granted, it does indeed look a little like a pineapple, but only from a distance, and I don't think it detracts from the watch if it's a good looking watch otherwise.

    I have studied this picture for damn near an hour, and I have yet to be able to ascertain the time. However, I am closing in on solving Pi.

    No kidding. With that many numbers, there's no way that thing doesn't double as a circular slide rule.
