Via the crown with the position #2. However no quick set on the date, instead the crown moves the hour hand in one hour increments (handy when travelling and changing time zones). By moving the hour hand forwards or backwards the date follows.

My wrist is 18cm / 7in.

Far and away my favorite non-Rolex. Possibly my favorite of all my watches. This thing tics every box for me.

Many non-Rolex have come and gone. Among the past favorites were Ball and Marathon on the tool side. Zenith tank on the dress side.

But the long term favorite is a basic Omega thatís been with me 50+ years.

Brilliant watch and the engraving is outstanding.

For sentimental reasons (and because I genuinely fell in love with it from the moment I saw the press photos).
