User Manual for EVAA:
The watch is non-winding, that means you best sway the watch in ca. 8 inch
circles for about a minute, that will wind the watch sufficiently so it
can be worn. During the wearing, the watch will gradually wind itself
further, after wearing the watch for about 24 hours it should be fully
wound. This of course depends on your level of physical activity during
this time. Do not shake the watch or hammer it against the palm of your
other hand please, mechanical watches do not like to be shaken
For the setting of your watch best follow the
Setting the Day and Date
1) Pull the crown out
2) Turn the crown to move the hour hand over midnight to select the
correct Day of the Week.
3) Use the button at 2 o'clock to set the correct Date
4) Leave the crown out to proceed with Time Setting or push it back
in if done.
Due to the use of the quick set button for setting the date, there is no
restriction as commonly found on automatic calendar watches regarding not
to set the date during the hours near midnight.
Setting the Time
The watch is non-hacking. That means if you pull out the crown to the
first position, the second hand will not stop. However by applying a
slight backward pressure - remember, I said slight - the second hand will
most likely slow down or stop. This is the same trick often used also for
the many Seiko models using the caliber 7S26 and the same method can be
used to "hack" most of the non-hacking watches.
1) Pull the crown out
2) Turn the crown clock-wise to advance the time to the desired
3) Since you have just set the correct Day of the week, you will
know whether your watch is now displaying e.g. 8 AM or 8 PM. If you are
setting the watch while being in PM hours, simply advance the hour hands
for another 12 hours.
4) Push the crown back in and you are done.
