If you feel resistance do not force the date advance. Go around to the 10 - 11 position again, push in the stem and try again, as you may only be at the 12 and not 24 hour position. if you miss it, go around again. Do not force the fast date advance. To fast advance the day of the week, pull the stem out and advance the hour to midnight, after the day changes, back the hour hand (counter clockwise) to the 6 pm position and go back to midnight and repeat as necessary. When backed off enough you should hear a slight click. To assure you are in the correct day date sequence, set the day of the week and date one day prior to what you want to show after setting the correct time.
