The caliber 9039 is a no-date movement so the crown only has two positions: winding (position 1) and time adjusting (position 2). The set the time on your 9039 powered watch, pull the crown out one click to position 2. You may need to unscrew the crown if it is a divers style watch with a screw-down system.
