How to Program a Nixon Watch

by Joshua Black

If you have just purchased a Nixon watch or you need to remember how to set a watch that you already own, you can set it yourself with a little training. Nixon watches have been around since their inception in 1997, where they were designed for the sports-oriented crowd of surfers, skaters, and snowboarders.

Step 1

Set the time. Pull the crown (winding stem) out halfway. Adjust the hands in either direction to set the proper time.

Step 2

Set the date. Pull the crown all the way out. Turn the crown counterclockwise and set it to the correct date. If you want the date to be set to change at midnight, make sure you set it before noon.

Step 3

Push the crown all the way in and screw it down if your watch has that option.

Watches With a Day and Date Display

Set the time. Pull the crown all the way out. Turn the crown clockwise to set the time.
