How to change date on Curren watch?

Question

Hello, I bought a new Curren M8146 chronograph watch yesterday, but I am having a hard time changing the date of the watch. I can rotate the crown to change the time but pressing any of the top or bottom button does absolutely nothing. Please help!

don't you find it odd that it didn't come with a manual and any setting instructions? I was going to ask if this was a black market watch because  it seems suspicious no setting instructions. But  I found a link and  the price seems really really good for a chronograph?

then best way to get setting instructions is to ask the company  and I don't think you're going to like the answer..

Then for a better description  Amazon  has something which I'm going to quote "3 small dials can not work, just for decoration "

usually brand-new watches come with warranty and instruction books?

the problem with a lot of the modern quartz watches is the setting instructions can be complicated.

I bought it online and it didn't come with an instruction manual.

Actually that's not the answer. What is really sad is their watch companies out there manufacturing watches selling them as something they're not.

There's an interesting video similar to yours notice that just passed three minutes of him explaining what a wonderful outstanding watch this is he talks about the little second hands that are not functional. At least he tells you the hands the buttons are for show I've looked at their website and they say chronograph dial and conveniently skip over the non-functionality part it's very misleading.

Now does this mean you can't get a cheap chronograph? In a previous discussion somebody was trying to repair a chronograph and the movement can be found at the link below. You'll notice it's a chronograph movement. In quantity this movement is supposed to cost less than four dollars. So this means yes you can get cheap chronograph.
