Setting The Watch
With the Crown tight to the case (position one), you can manually wind the Watch in this position. Pull the crown gently out and you will be in position two, setting the time by moving the crown.
This movement features a semi-quickset date feature, more advanced from all other members of the ETA 2400 family apart from the similar hand-wound 2408. The date changes instantly at midnight. To set the date, the time is moved forward from 20:30 to 24:00, then back to 20:30 and forward again.
