Question about Watches

1 Answer

I just bought a Mondaine travel alarm pocket watch. Instructions say the crown has 3 positions. 1> Home normal for a quartz watch. 2> Pull out 1/2 way to set alarm. 3> Pull out all way to set time. My watch only has 2 positions. Out and In.. Out sets time and In sets alarm. Watch, Time and Alarm works fine and alarm setting does'nt get moved around from carrying around in pocket. So is there any problem with keeping this watch? Im ok with it, so long as there is not an excess battery drain or some such ailment. ?? Thanks, Eddie

It seems like your watch has a little short stem and that's why it has only 2 positions. This does not affect battery in any way, nor the timekeeping.
The only downside of this is that you can accidentaly reset alarm time without knowing it as your watch crown is in permanent 1/2 way position.
If you are happy with that - keep your watch.

How do I set a Danbury pocket watch with date display


If it is this pocket watch, then the crown (the bit you turn to wind the watch) has 3 positions. Position 1 is when the crown is pushed in all the way. Position 3 is when the crown is pulled out as far as it will go. In between position 1 and position 3 is a place where the crown will stop, this is position 2.
To set the day of the week, pull the crown out to position 3 to set the time. When you set the time, the bottom dial with also turn to set the hour on the 24 hour clock, if you turn the crown enough to cycle through a whole day the day of the week dial will also turn. Keep turning the crown until the time is set on the proper day of the week.
To set the date, pull the crown out to position 2, and turn it clockwise until the hand on the date dial points to the correct date.
Hope this helps!

I've lost the owner's instructions and need directions for setting the alarm.


  • Unscrew the crown (the main knob on the center right side of the watch casing), wait until the second hand is at the 12 o'clock position, and pull the crown knob up so that it clicks once.
  • 2 Press the button below the crown knob repeatedly until the hands of the alarm dial point to the time within the next 12 hours that you want the alarm to ring. Pressing the button once will move the alarm one minute forward. Pressing and holding the button will move the alarm forward quickly.
  • 3 Pull the crown knob one click further out and turn to adjust the main hands to the correct time, to take into account the time you took to set the alarm.
  • 4 Push the crown knob two clicks back into its normal position, and screw it into place until it locks.

    I need instructions on setting the alarm for the Pulsar Chronograph 100M. I'm able to set everything else. Your response is greatly appreciated. THANKS!!


    I answered this for different Fossil watch post, but I believe it will be the same for your watch.
    I'll re-post the answer below.
    ------

    To set the alarm on these models of Pulsar watches, do the following:
    Looking at the face of the watch, there are two buttons and a crown on the right side. The TOP button is Button "A". - The BOTTOM button is Button "B".
    There are 3 positions on the crown: IN (#0), FIRST CLICK (#1) & SECOND CLICK (#2). 
    The small dials located at the bottom of the watch face (6 O'clock) are the alarm minute and hour dials.

    First, pull the crown out to the second 'click' (position #2) ... This is all the way out. (STOP THERE! Pulling harder will harm your watch! Don't try to pull past position #2!)
    Second, set the correct time. (plus one or two minutes... time to complete this.)
    Third, with the crown still out to position #2, push button "B" (bottom) until the alarm minute and hour hands are set to the present time (same as the large dials).
    Fourth, push the crown all the way in- to position #0.
    The current time on the large dial should read the same as the small alarm 'time'. {This is the CURRENT TIME, not the alarm SOUND SET.}
    To set the alarm SOUND time, pull the crown out to the first click (position #1).
    Push button "B" until the dials of the alarm are at the time you want the alarm to sound... It can only be set within 12 hours! ... It does NOT know "am or pm".
    When the desired time is set for the "alarm sound", push the crown all the way in (position #0).
    The alarm dials will now indicate the time for your alarm to sound, NOT the current time. (this way, you know that the alarm is engaged.)
    To reset the alarm- or disable it, pull the crown out to the first click (position #1) and hold button "B" down until the dials advance and stop at the current time... it will stop at the current time- then release button "B". --- Push the crown back in (position #0) and the alarm will now be disabled.

    If the alarm dials are always moving and at the current time, you know that the alarm is disabled.
    If the alarm dials are stationary and not moving with the time, you know that the alarm is engaged and set to the time shown.

    I hope this helps.

    How do I change the date on a Colibri Pocket Watch?


    Usually all quartz watches are supplied with calendar setting mechanism and it is very simple-
    try to pull out crown and you will notice that there are two clicks,so, when the crown is pulled out to the first click, the date can be adjusted by the turn of the crown. When crown is pulled further out (second click)- the watch is in hand setting position and you can adjust time.
    Did it help?

    Re-set quartz chronograph sweeping second hand


    Easy Soultion worked for me. Believe Me I was worried only had the Seiko Sportura for a week now. My second dial for the stopwatch was re-setting to 5 seconds instead of zero. The Solution is
    1. pull the Crown all the way out ( In the position you take the crown to set the time , second click ).
    2. To set the minute face of stop watch , keep pressing the top button untill it is zero. To set the second needle to zero keep pressing the bottom button untill it reaches zero or where you like it to re-set each time. Depend on you.
    3. Once all neddles of stopwatch are at resting postions ( usually zero) secure the crown back to its normal postion. Test your stop watch , hopefully it will go back to zero when you press the reset button. C
