Because I was looking at the wrong watch. I was looking at my black one not my blue one. Ok New question. How do you set the right date and time on these perpetuals?

It is unwise to pay too much, but it is worse to pay too little. When you pay too much, you lose a little moneythat is all. When you pay too little you sometimes lose everything because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing it was bought to do ... If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is well to add something for the risk you run, and if you do that you will have enough to pay for something better.

and go through a set procedure of making 3 contacts in sequence...
here is a Reto link showing how. You could also take the watch in and have a Seiko service center do it or anyone familiar with the procedure.
If the seconds hand ticks over in 2 second increments, the battery will need changing soon and you are given 3 minutes to install the correct battery. If you take longer, then the software for setting the calendar must be reset via the above procedure! good luck haha!

Perpetuals, unless changed within seconds, have to

be reset. Unlike some quartz where its just a simple matter of shorting the battery against a "reset" point, the perpetuals need to be reset by a competant watchmaker familiar with Seikos or send it to Coserv, the factory service center in the states. I've done both and the latter cost 4X as much ($20ish vs $80+) but Coserv just won't reset it they replace the movement along with the battery (I guess its quicker for them?) and I suppose its a good deal if the watch is worth keeping.
Good luck,
