Hans,

The date is changed using the pusher at 2 o'clock on the case.. Day is set using the crown at first position..

Thanks for the tip for changing the date. One more please, I see that the watch has 4 hands: hour, minute, second and what is the 4 smaller hand for? Also, do you have a link for the watch's manual.

Hi Tony,

Thanks for the great tip for changing the date. I have another question for you: I see the watch has 4 hands: hour, minute, second and a smaller hand, what is this for? Do you have a link for the watch's manual?

Cheers!

Luis Bernardo.

Hi Luis,

There are only the three hands.. What you are seeing as a fourth hand is a line on the dial that represents GMT..

Sorry, no manual..

Cheers

Tony

"...a fourth hand is a line on the dial that represents GMT..",
No, it is not.
It's rather IDL, "an imaginary line of longitude on the Earth's surface located at about 180 degrees east or west of the Greenwich Meridian".

* Do you perhaps know specs and the manuf. number for a "WD" model with a common window for the day of the month and the week? This one can't be #3 as it hasn't "World Diver" sign, only "WD".
I have original one, it was purchased almost 40 years ago and it is still working.

* BTW, great blog about Orient watches, congratulations.
Rgds.
