this is probably obvious...

I've just never seen it remarked on. By far the easiest way to deal with date or day and date in a 30 day month is to quick set the date to "31" on the afternoon of the 30th. Day should look after itself. Works with all of my watches.

Or just wait until the next morning and move it from 31 to 1 before putting it on your wrist.

Take these. Then you only have to adjust it once a year.

As per the previous poster. I just like having it right at 7 A.M. on the 1st when I'm usually not noticing much at all.

Try owning non-quickset date watches - huge pain in the ass if you go too far ahead.
