    Default Problem changing time on Tudor Pelagos

    I've got a problem with my Pelagos with a 2824 Asian clone movement.

    When I try to adjust the time it wont wind forward at all - I can only change it by winding backwards. I am careful with how I treat my watches so I'll be surprised if I've stripped a gear or similar. It happened when I went to change the time when flying to Europe recently. The watch works perfectly but a I rotate my watches a lot I often need to change the time. Is it okay to do this backwards and do I actually need to try to fix this problem?

    Try pulling out the crown a little more, it maybe that its not fully in time setting position.

    backwards is no problem but it should not be like that....If you did not pull out the crown entirely, I think then it would not wind backwards either....Something blocking a gear should prevent it from running good and you say it is...strange...
    The date should not be adjusted when the movement is between 8pm and 2am as the cogs/cams/gears are engaged to move the date ring during those hours and could be damage by reversing their progression.
    If one is going to regress the date one day then note where in the cycle the movement currently is, progress the hours beyond the danger period and perform the adjustment to the date then reset the hour as required.
    To finish off the process, progress the date to one day before the required date and then move the hands forward until the date changes over and you can then set the time accurately for that day.
    There is no need to grind the hands through 30x24hrs to adjust the date back one day. The quick date mechanism is just that if used correctly.
    Slow date movements are another matter. These movements usually require the hands to be cycled between 8pm and the change of date and then reversing the hands back to 8pm to reengage the date change mechanism for the next change of date. Slower but still manageable.

    I always do it this way:
    1. use handwind mechanism 25 times
    2. pull out crown to time level and turn hands until date changes, so I know that now the hands are "in the morning" and after 3 a.m.
    2. click in the crown to date level and adjust the correct date.
    3. pull out crown to time level again and adjust the correct time.

    --> Good or bad this way?

    Thanks for the replies. I'll try those and see how I go. I think it may have been because of the time of day when I tried to make the adjustment. I have been gentle in not wanting to do any damage, which I don not appear to have done thankfully.

    Kind of reminds me of the first time I tried to adjust the time on a chrono between 8pm and 2am when I didn't know any better! I felt resistance so i stopped and left it until the next day. That watch has never missed a beat in about 7 or 8 years so no harm done!

    I tried the suggestions above and it is still not possible to advance the time forwards except a little at the start. Date change is fine but the time just seems to be missing something. The date changes automatically and the watch runs perfectly so I have no clue what to do. Maybe nothing?

    Very weird.

    I also do this. It makes sense to me.

    I actually can't do it that way as it won't wind forward! I might just try it at different times of the day to see if that makes a difference.
