How do I set a Patek Philippe Geneve watch?

How do I set a Patek Philippe Geneve watch?
Most Patek Philippe Geneve watches are similar in their adjustments. Turn the crown clockwise to wind the watch once per day, and use the small push buttons on the side of the case to set other parameters like month and day. On some less complicated models, everything is adjusted by unscrewing the crown and putting it in different positions. Consult the brand’s website for more specific setting instructions. On 1stDibs, find a collection of vintage and contemporary Patek Philippe watches from some of the world’s top sellers.
