I have that watch. It does have the date feature and it is utilized with the crown in the second position as you said, rolled towards you. Did you double (triple?) check to make sure the crown is in the correct position, because I've found that it tends to slip occasionally. Also, can you make the date change via advancing the hands?I cannot get the date to set with the crown in the second position on my Seamaster Pro 300. It has the 1120 caliber. Tried rolling date forward
at 4pm. Does this caliber not have a date set function? I thought it did and am hoping nothing inside is amiss.
Got out the owners manual for it, there is no date forward feature for the 1120 movement. The second position is empty. Maybe now that I have written it I will remember it.
