My atomic watch is 5 minutes slow, do not know how to change the time to the correct setting


I would suspect that your watch is not picking up the radio signal to reset itself to the correct time. There are several reasons for this - the battery might be very low, or you are in a poor reception area, or you are just too far from the transmitter, or the hands need realigning. If the watch claims to pick up multiple transmitters, then be sure that it is set to the correct one. Try taking off the watch at night and placing it face-up on a window sill to give it the best chance of a signal.
I can't offer anything other than general advice as you do not give the make/model of your timepiece. Some radio-controlled watches have a facility to realign (or 'zero') the hands - again, can't be specific without more information.

How do I set the Chimes on the Ergo Westminster Clock


The controls on the back of the Ergo brand Wall Chime Clock are different than that of the Seiko. I'm not sure who makes the movement - probably Chinese or Asian. Anyway, always take the pendulum off the hook before moving the clock about as it can damage the mechanism. On the back, there is a dial for adjusting the time setting of the clock hands, which is awkward to use, but does work, easiest to leave it alone and use the minute hand, NEVER the hour hand. There is a dial for volume. There is a switch for type of chime - Westminster or Wittington. There is the night-time shut off or volume reduction. Some models have a switch for chiming every quarter hour. My advice is make sure you have fresh batteries, and set the switches on the back for the settings you want. Hang the clock, grasp the pendulum arm and re-hang the pendulum, making sure it's hooked in properly. Now, whatever the hands say the time is, ignore it for now, and gently move the minute hand backwards, slowly, to about 5 minutes before the top of the hour, then forwards to a couple of minutes past the top of the hour. This will cause the chimes to start. Let the melody play, then listen for how many "clangs" you get. That will tell you what the clock thinks the time is. For example, if it "dongs" 5 times, and you've set it to run silent at night, the clock thinks it's 5 p.m. If it's actually only 3:15 p.m., then gently run the minute hand backwards til the hands indicate about 10 minutes behind the correct time (it'll take you several minutes to complete the process) then gently move the minute hand back to about 5 minutes before the top of the hour, then forward to a few minutes past, and the chime will start to play the melody. If you let it, it will play out the full melody, then it will "clang" one more time than your previous test. Each time you move the minute hand back to 5 minutes before the hour, it advances the chimes by one hour. Here's a tip - you don't have to let the melody and "clangs" play fully, each time, once you know how it works. If you have it set to run silent at night (pre-programmed to silence after 10 p.m. to 6 p.m.), keep moving the minute hand back to 5 minutes before the hour, keeping track of how many times you've done it until you reach 10 p.m., or not, until you get to the point where you move the minute hand back and there's silence. At that point, the auto-silence mechanism is active, and the clock thinks it 11 p.m. So, from that point, keep repeating the process of gently moving the minute hand back and forth, from about 5 minutes to the hour, to a few minutes past, keeping track of how many times you've done it. After 8 sequences, you hear it start to chime again, at 6 a.m. So, at that point, go through the back-up and advancing of the minute hand sequence 9 more times, and on the 9th time, let the melody play, and let in "clang" to determine that you're indeed at 3 p.m., which you should be. Then simply gently advance the minute hand to the correct time, 3:10, 3:12, whatever, and you're done. You'll know for certain soon enough.

Well, thats a good watch. however, based on the conditions of your watch, probably, its battery is not dead. some of its mechanism were not in place or broken. Repairing it is advisable. Afterall it has no scratches like what you've said. So go for repair men!

How do you set the day of the week?


Since you didnt tell me what KIND of watch it is I am giving you a general instructions.

  • Wait until the second hand is at zero (the top of the dial). Then pull the crown knob out as far as it will go to set the time on your watch. Turn the knob in either direction and look at the three additional hands on the time dials of your watch: the minute hand, the hour hand and the 24-hour hand.
  • Step 2 Stop turning the knob when all minute and hour hands are pointing to the correct time. Pay special attention to the 24-hour hand so that you have a.m. or p.m. correct.
  • Step 3 Push the knob back in exactly when a new minute is starting so that your second hand will be correct. Use another clock you know to be accurate as a reference, such as the government clock available online.
  • Step 4 Pull the knob out halfway so you can set the date. Turn it counterclockwise until you notice the date on the watch changing. Stop it and push the knob back in to its starting position once you reach the correct one. Try to set the date before 9 p.m. If you set it after that time, it may not register with your watch that it should switch the date at midnight. If this happens with your watch, just fix it the next day.
  • Step 5 Set the chronograph, or big dial, on your watch. It works like a stopwatch to let you time activities for up to one hour. Push the top button on the side of your watch to start it. Push it again to stop it. Push the bottom button on the side of your watch to reset it.

  • It would certainly help if next time you let us know what kind of watch it is you have, Best of luck.

    Resetting stopwatch dials - Armani AR5331


    When you reset the big seconds hand to zero, the hour and the minute hand are not engaged in this function, so, there is no fault with the watch movement.
    Do as follows:
    1) pull out crown and set the hour and minute hands at 6 o'clock (they must be lined perfectly in opposite directions)
    2) push the crown in half way back (not completely)
    3) push and hold the button at 2 o'clock (set the big seconds hand to zero) and release it when done
    4) when big seconds hand is zeroed push the crown back in
    5) pull the crown out again and set desired time
    6) push the crown back in.
    If all actions described do not work, you will have to visit your nearest watch repair shop and ask to refit chronograph hand as in this case it is out of balance (not pointed at exact mark).

    Rate me, please.

    Need instructions on National Geographic Men's watch #NG010GYSK




    go to Buliva web site and look for the chorograph 561/598
    FEATURES
    1. Hours, minutes, seconds and date display.
    2. 60 minute Chronograph (CHRONO) with minutes and
    seconds display.
    3. 24 hour hand, permanently synchronized with the normal
    12 hour hand.
    A. SETTING THE TIME
    1. Pull the crown out to position “3” (See diagram). If the crown has
    a “screw-down” lock, then unscrew the crown lock first by turning
    the crown toward you, then pull it to position “3”. Do not forget to
    screw the crown back “IN” after all setting is completed.
    2. Turn the crown towards you (hands moves clockwise) until the
    date changes at approximately midnight.
    3. Continue turning the hour and minute hands to the correct time.
    If it is afternoon you must go past 12 o’clock again (noon) to set
    the correct time.
    4. When the correct time is set,push crown back to position “1”.
    B. SETTING THE DATE
    1. Pull crown to position “2”(See proceeding diagram).The watch
    will continue to run.
    2. Turn the crown away from you until the correct date appears.
    3. Once the date is set, push the crown back to position “1”.
    Note: Do NOT set the date between the hours of 8:00 PM and
    3:00 AM.This would not damage the watch,but the date may need
    to be reset later.
    C. CHRONOGRAPH (CHRONO) ADJUSTMENT
    If the chrongraph second hand is not positioned at the proper
    starting position (12 o’clock or “zero” position), use the below
    procedure.It does not need to be repeated unless the watch
    receives an impact sufficient to move the hand out of position, or
    the Battery has been changed.
    1. Pull crown out to position “3”.
    2. Push button “A” to move the Chrono Second hand (long hand) to
    the “0” or 12 o’clock position. Each button push will move the
    hand one step – BUT holding the button down will advance the
    hand rapidly.
    3. Push crown back to position “1”.
    D. USING THE CHRONOGRAPH (CHRONO)
    Note:
    The maximum chrono reading is 60 minutes, However the
    chrono will continue running once 60 minutes has passed. The
    resulting one hour periods may be added together mentally to keep
    track of longer periods.
    For example – If you know that approximately one hour has
    passed since you started the chronograph, and the chrono reads
    25 minutes, then you know that the chrono has been running 60
    minutes plus 25 minutes, which is one hour and 25 minutes.
    1. Push Button “A” to start the chronograph. Push button “A” again
    to stop the chronograph.
    2. Push button “B” to return the two chronograph hands to the
    “Zero” or starting point.
    3. The Chronograph can be stopped and started again
    (Button “A”), repeatedly, to “ADD” times together.

    Citizen Skyhawk Time Adjustment Problem


    It is possible to set the main analogue hour and minute hand 30 minutes out of phase with the digital readout, but doing so will also put the analogue UTC dial 30 minutes off. It can be done by using a variation of the proceedure for zeroing the watch hands as follows: 1. Rotate the crown in its normal opering position to set the watch in chronograph mode (mode dial pointing to "chr") 2. Pull out the crown to the second click. This should cause all the hands on the watch to return to zero. "HR" should appear on the left-hand digital display. This will allow you to move the hour hand by twisting the crown. Advance it to about half way between the 12 o'clock and 1 o'clock positions. 3. Press the top button. "MIN" should appear in the left-hand digital display. This allows you to adjust the minute hand. Twist the crown to advance it to the 6 o'clock, or 30 minute, position. Note that this will also move the minute hand on the small UTC dial to the 30 minute position. 4. Press the crown back into its normal position. 5. Reset the digital time and date according to a time zone that is in a one-hour offset from UTC. This is not a perfect solution. Your digital readings will show the correct time for all one-hour offset time zones while your analogue nads are 30 minutes out of phase. Your small UTC dial will also be 30 minutes out of phase with the digital UTC. Hope this helps.
