None of that matters, set it any way you like. Remember the "quick set trick"? That is winding it backwards.
Collecting Zodiacs is not for the meek; be an educated collector.

To change the date on a non-quick set date watch:
Turn hour hand back to 9 (past OK) then forward to 3 (past OK).
Repeat until you are 1 day  behind correct date.
Then turn crown forward until you have correct day being careful to get AM & PM right.*
* If you screw this step up, you will spend the next hour repeating these steps for at least 30 times.


Best,
dmh
