    The Ball watch had a note saying not to set the date during this time window and it is also mentioned in the manual. I've seen this mentioned elsewhere but none of my other watches came with any instructions say not to set the date during that time window.

    Yes? Assume those instructions are in effect, and get used to the idea of not changing your watch's date anytime around midnight. Do it while you wait for your morning coffee to brew or your lunchtime BLT to arrive, or while you're watching the 5-o'clock news.

    Follow,those,directions. I accidentally set the date during those hours on my Omega SMP. I need a repair and had a nasty-gram from an Omega watchmaker.
