To set the time, first unscrew the winding crown and haul it out to the primary score. Turn the bezel as far as possible counterclockwise to situate 2. Turn the twisting crown one or the other way and you’ll see the middle hands and 24-hour plate move as one. On the off chance that your home time region is PST and it’s presently 6 pm. Turn the crown until the middle hands show 6 o’clock and the reversed triangle over the circle focuses to 18.
