Changing the Time & Date 

To set the time on the majority of O.W.L watches simply pull out the crown to the 2nd position and turn clockwise until the hands show the accurate time. ( if your O.W.L watch also has a 24 hour sub dial this will also move at the same time as the hands so make sure it is at the correct am or pm setting )

If your O.W.L Watch has a day sub dial, to set this pull out the crown to the 2nd position and rotate clockwise, keep turning until the day indicator is pointing at the correct day.

O.W.L watches have two date window designs, one located as a date window at the six o’clock position and the second as a sub dial at the three o’clock position, to change and set the date the process for both is the same.  Simply pull out the crown to the 1st position and rotate the crown anti-clockwise until the correct date is chosen then simply push back in the crown.



However there is a knack to adjusting the slider to fit your wrist so I’ve added some details below which I hope you’ll find helpful.


1/ Lay the watch down so the end of the strap is towards you


2/ With a small metal tool, screwdriver or even a pair of tweezers, insert into the square hole on the top of the tab and angle, so the inserted end is towards the bottom of the strap. Press down on the end of the tool and the metal tab will pop up. This doesn’t need a lot of force and should pop open easily.


3/ The slider can then be moved up and down the strap to the position for the correct length for your wrist.


4/ Once in the correct position use your finger to push the tab back into position.


5/ Please make sure it is fully closed to ensure the slider doesn’t fall off the mesh strap.  If you are finding it difficult to close there are some slight indentations on the back of the mesh and the slider may need moving very slightly so it snaps into one of these when closing. The tab should be fully closed and touching the bottom of the slider to be secure. You will hear a click once fully closed and the tab won’t be able to be opened again without the use of a tool.


All of the steps to adjust the strap does not need excess force. If you are having problems adjusting you slider feel free to call us and we can talk you through it further.

If you’re finding setting the time on your watch or altering your mesh bracelet, a bit tricky, don’t hesitate to give us a call. Sometimes it’s easier if another person can talk you through the process TEL: +44 (0) 121 270 6678
