Without violating anybodys copyrights I think I can give you a short description how to set the watch
You enter the time seperated with colons:
HH ":" MM ":" SS
The colon is in the 3rd row, 1st column of the keyboard
Then press the "shift" key "^" and "T"
"^" is in the 4th row, 4th column and "T" is in position 4/7
"T" "^" followed by "." will switch between 12 and 24 hour display mode.
Setting the date works this way:
Enter (in example) 22/12/02
then "^" "21" (for the 21st century)
and then "^" "D"
A decimal point at the right side of the display shows, that you have set a date after year 2000.
For changing the date display between "MM-DD-YY" and "DD-MM-YY" just press "D" "^" and then "." similarly to switching between the different time modes.
I assume you know, that you need to push "D" or "T" for a short time to see date or time for some seconds.
Have fun with your HP-01. It's a great toy and I sometimes wear it in business meetings. I own two IWCs, but the HP is a completely different watch. Currently there is a movement to larger and larger watches and the HP-01 is absolutely compatible with this trend :-)
