Orient Racer 27j "Click" to Login or Register

hi all,
I was going through an old bag of watches I have and found a 1970's vintage Orient Racer 27 jewel day date watch.
I have no idea how to set the day date, any help here ?
Thanks,
Bill

Is it like a Seiko where you need to pull the stem out to the 2nd of 3 clicks?

Bill, you can usually get that information by doing an online search for the make of watch. I have had good luck with all that I have done.
Regards,
Bruce

William,
IT does not appear to be, it only seems to pull out the one click, to change the time ?
Bruce,
I have looked for a user manual online for this watch, and I could not find one, for the racer, but I am still looking.
Thanks to both of you, I appreciate it,
Bill

Peter,
Thank you for your good info, there is a pin above the stem, and it does change the date, the stem when pulled will change the day.
Thanks again,
Bill
