SOURCE: Citizen BL717459L - Alarm sound is too low

No, there is nothing wrong with the alarm in your watch.
The sound in all watches are generated by passing vibrations to the metal tweeter which is connected to the watch caseback inside the watch. As the surface of the watch is quite small, there is not efficient power to spred the vibrations over the caseback surface, hence low volume of the alarm. No wristwatch in the world is capable of loud alarm sound yet. This is something the scientists have to work with.
The plastic protector is definetly affecting the volume. Take it off and you will notice slightly better sound. This protector actually is ment to protect watch caseback from scratches prior to selling it to the customer and have no use after that. In fact it only collects the dirt and bacteria and can affect your skin as the caseback as well.
Another sound improvement can be the new battery if the original is underpowered. Alarm feature uses the most of the energy stored in battery and the power consumption is higher than all watch movement parts put together.

Rate me, please.

SOURCE: beep and chime will not work

I think there would have been a minute spring coming from the back of the watch module to the backplate of the watch - this spring carried a vibration / beep which echoed off the backplate. Chances are you have damaged this spring during battery change - as i did with my gShock. Basically it's nackered!

SOURCE: setting a Citizen Chronograph watch

assuming the battery isn't dead (IF IT IS DON'T TAKE THE BACK OFF, YOU WILL LOSE THE SPRING THAT MAKES THE ALARM SOUND) the button on the bottom right click it until the function selector is pointed to time, then pull the button out, then the top two buttons i believe change the hour hands. before setting the time you will need to zero this watch out, or calibrate it or the date will not change in synch with the time at midnight.

my battery is dead and i am a truck driver and am therefore having a difficult time (no pun intended) finding a place i can get parked to have my battery changed. please believe me when i tell you that you will lose this spring, a jeweler lost mine once and it took months to order a new one

SOURCE: New Battery but Alarm sound doesn't work

You will find an arrow head on the outside back of your watch where all the printing is. When you put this lid back on, this arrow needs to be aligned with a notch on the inside edge where the cover goes on. As you are looking at the watch from the back with the cover off this notch is in a northwesterly direction. If you doubt it then just hold the back on without popping it in all the way and hit your mode button to make sure that you hear the beeps again. If you do, then you've found the right spot.

Citizen QA4360 Sporty watch after battery replacement dont alarm. What is the problem wit it?


If the watch now makes no sound at all, no beeps ever, It seems like the alarm unit noise generator, has been disturbed when you opened it. Ignore the battery and look for the sound transducer behind the holes in the case where the sound comes out. Is it dirty or have any wires to it broken?

I have an older citizen promaster - 410487 5862-F80103TA - the alarm wont turn off


The alarm-setting process for your Citizen Promaster watch is similar to the process used to set the time and date. Access the Alarm mode on your watch by pressing the bottom left button until "AL" is displayed. Use the watch's bottom left button to advance the flashing and the buttons on the right side of the watch to set the alarm to the desired time. If that doesnt help, then I would HIGHLY suggest you ask Citizen at their website as follows: http://www.citizenwatch.com good luck

I have citizen navihawk and the alarm chime is not working. What could be the problem??


Did this start after you had the battery changed? It is not uncommon for the alarm contact spring to get broken off that way.

The battery was changed two weeks ago. A week


Greg it sounds like you should take your watch to a propper watchmaker. (qualified) Most jewellers are not well educated in regard to watches and their servicing.
