# Formulas to create watch face

Hi all, I wanted to ask two questions:
1 how do I make the red hand indicate the current month? (left quadrant of the photo)
2 how do I make the circles of the quadrant to the right of the photo rotate and show me the current day (as a brown circle at the top of the photo)?

You need to rotate your month ring 45 degrees.
Try the following in the Rotation Field for the Red hand.

`((#DM#)*30)`

I see Peter @petruuccios has joined us.

`(((#Dd#)-1)*(360/31))`

Get back if you need to adjust something. You have some parts to play with now.

This post is corrected after looking a What Peter Had to say . Peter Thanks for helping us to get it right . See Descriptive Maths Model

Hello, you could use formula like (#DMYR#-45) in the rotation field. Or you could use the just the tag #DMYR#, but you would have to turn your month dial 45Â° so that the Dez stands on the top.

I am not sure what exactly are you trying to do, but to turn the date ring I would use something like ((#Dd#-1)*360/31) or (#DMR#-360/31)

#DMR# is not documented in their help center
I wonder how many other available tags are not documented.
