Nowhere in the little operations manual that came with my watch does it give the accuracy of the timepiece. Where can I get that information? I have a movado ESQ bracer chronograph.


Interesting question. I know little about watches but, as you would know, your watch does have a quartz movement, so, from Wikipedia, 'Quartz clock':

Standard-quality resonators of this type are warranted to have a long-term accuracy of about 6 parts per million at 31 degrees C (87.8 F): that is, a typical quartz wristwatch will gain or lose 15 seconds per 30 days (within a normal temperature range of 5 deg C / 41 F to 35 deg C / 95 F) or less than a half second clock drift per day when worn near the body.

If a quartz wristwatch is "rated" by measuring its timekeeping characteristics against an atomic clock's time broadcast, to determine how much time the watch gains or loses per day, and adjustments are made to the circuitry to "regulate" the timekeeping, then the corrected time will easily be accurate within 10 seconds per year. This is more than adequate to perform celestial navigation.



Assuming that you have a computer with internet-synced time and good internet, meaning around 1/100 second accuracy, why not compare the watch to the computer over the space of a week?

How do i set my alarm and when do i know it is on or off....keeps coming on and i dont know how to shut off the alarm...thank you


This clock radio features a dual alarm system, with two separate alarms that can be operated independently. The alarms can be set to wake two people at different times, or to have a main alarm and a backup. One alarm features your choice of radio stations as an alarm wake sound, while the second features a buzzer wake sound. You can set the radio alarm, the buzzer alarm, or both alarms.
Setting Radio Alarm
1. Press the "Alarm Set" Button. The display will flash and the Radio Alarm Indicator will appear. If you do not begin setting the time within ten seconds of pressing the it, the display will stop flashing andd you will need to press the "alarm Set Button again. 2. While the display flashes, press the "Tuning/Set" Buttons to set the wake time. Hold a button for a few seconds to advance the time rapidly. Be sure to set the correct AM/PM time, as shown by the PM Indicator. 3. After setting the radio alarm time, you will need to select the station to wake up to. First, press the "AM/FM" Button to select a radio frequency. Next, select a station using the "Radio Preset Buttons". Rotate the Volume Thumbwheel to set a wake sound volume level. 4. After setting the radio alarm wake time and sound, you will need to select your 7-5-2 setting. The 7-5-2 setting lets you set the alarm for a full week, weekdays only, or the weekend. Before setting the alarm, be sure that the correct date is set. 5. After you have set the radio alarm wake time, wake sound, and 7-5-2 setting, press the "Alarm Set" Button twice so that the display shows the standard, non-flashing display.
Setting Buzzer Alarm
1. Press the "Alarm Set" Button twice. The display will flash and the Buzzer Alarm Indicator will appear. 2. While the display flashes, press the "Tuning/Set" Buttons to set the wake time, as described above. 3. After setting the buzzer wake time, use the "Date/7-5-2" Button to select the buzzer. 4. After you have set the buzzer wake time and 7-5-2 setting, press the "Alarm Set" Button once so that the display shows the standard, non- flashing display.
Activating the Alarms
1. To activate the radio alarm, press the "Radio Alarm" Button so that the Radio Alarm Indicator appears on the display. As long as this indicator appears, the alarm will sound at the set time and days. 2. To activate the buzzer alarm, press the "Buzzer Alarm" Button so that the Buzzer Alarm Indicator appears on the display. As long as this indicator appears, the alarm will sound at the set time and days. 3. When the alarm sounds, press the " Off/Reset" Button to turn off the alarm while still maintaining the programmed 7-5-2 alarm settings. To turn off an alarm and cancel its 7-5-2 settings, press its "Alarm Button" so that its Alarm Indicator no longer appears on the display. 4. To activate the snooze feature, press the "Snooze/Night-Light" Bar when the alarm sounds. The alarm will shut off for approximately nine minutes before sounding again. The feature can be repeated several times during the one-hour snooze cycle. 5. If it is not turned off, the alarm will sound for an hour before stopping. As long as an Alarm Indicator appears on the display, the alarm will sound at the set time, according to the 7-5-2 settings.

Set clock, date, alarm on SI686 CD/ Radio / Alarm Clock with Sound Soother


Can you clarify what you need help with? To SET THE CLOCK push the "Mode" button twice. (The current time setting flashes on the display) Once it is flashing, Decrease the hours by pressing "1" Increase hours by pressing "2" Decrease minutes by pressing "3" and increase minutes by pressing "4". If no additional buttons are pressed the time will reset in about 10 seconds and the display will stop blinking.

TO SET THE DATE press the "mode" button 4 times. The current date setting will flash on the display. Decrease the date by pressing 3. Increase the date by pressing 4.

Decrease months by pressing 1. Increase the months by pressing 2. The date will reset in about 10 seconds when you stop pushing the buttons.

TO SET THE ALARM Press the "mode "button once. The display will begin to flash. Change the hours by pressing either 1 (increase) or 2 (decrease). To change the minutes, press 3 or 4. 3 decreases the minutes and 4 increases the minutes. Once you have the time reset, leave the unit alone for about 10 seconds. the display will stop blinking indicating the time has been reset.

TO ACTIVATE THE ALARM push the round button on the far right. You will see the alarm icon come on or off on the LCD display on the right side. Be sure you have set the AM or PM time correctly on the alarm time. It helps to recheck this now as I have made this mistake several times.

If you get stuck on military time and want the 12 hour clock the answer is posted on this site, as well.

Hope this helps.

Two clocks are set at 6am one clock gains 30 seconds every hour and the second clock loses 1 minute every hour. at what time will the faster clock be 30 minutes ahead of the second clock


Compute the difference in clock-speeds, namely 90 seconds per hour.
Convert the units of time: 30 minutes becomes 180 seconds.
So, divide 180 by 90 to get '2', namely 2 hours after the 6 o'clock "start" time, which makes it 8 PM.











P.S. There is at least one error in the above solution. If you truly understand the solution, make the necessary correction, and submit the corrected "homework" to your teacher.

Clock is faster than should be


I have the same problem. Don't try using the auto clock update from antenna/cable either, that always sets it way off, if it even works at all I just keep setting it back manually. But now my unit has more major problems. It won't record anymore, its time to buy a better box.

Here is how you adjust the time zone:
1.) push MODE till "AL" appears after the minute.
2.) tap "SET" (tap means push but do not hold) and time zone will advance.

3.) THE TRICK: The Time Zone can only be set in the Alarm Mode. Make sure you so not push and hold "SET" until the hour flashes as you would to set the alarm time. You just go into Alarm Mode and tap "SET" to advance the Time Zone by one zone per tap. When the Time Zone is where you want it, tap MODE to return to the clock and set the correct time.

RCA alarm clock - RP3721 - crystal or AC for time?


They used to use crystals to help the timer ics to keep time but since the development of Micropros. all this is built in to one chip. Now they will use a resonator or a small crystal for the timing clock of the micro but nowdays the manufacture uses that clock to keep all in check. If your gaining time you probably are having problems with your ac duty cycle as this also keeps clocks in check.. This would not affect most devices but could be a problem. But of course a defective Micro could also cause this gain in time And probably is?? Now a battery backup is nothing more then a battery in line with the Microproccesors B+ terminal through of course a diode as well as a voltage limiter resistor to take over the B+ when the units ac supply is absent..
