Question about Kenneth Cole KC3400 Wrist Watch

Open Question

Kenneth Cole Watch KC1297

My watch battery went flat only a few months after purchasing the watch. The watch is a combination analog/digital display and the battery that went flat controlled the digital function. After installing a new battery, the digital display no longer appears. I have tried to press the dials concurrently (in all combinations possible) but have been unable to reset the display. Can you please help. Mario.

Start by looking at the inside of the watchband, there should be a arrow pointing up/down. Take a pin and put it in on the side that shows the arrow going down. Take a hammer and GENTLY tapp the pin. The pin should push out a pin in the band. Do this as many times as you have to for the size you desire, and then put the pin in the same derection as you tapped the pin out. Usually you will also see a **** on the side youn DON'T want to tap out. If you still; have a problem don;'t hesitate to write me, and I will be glad to take you step by step with this. Good Luck!!

SOURCE: Kenneth Cole Reaction watch date set problem

I just dug my watch out after not wearing for a few years and had the same problem. There is an easy way to adust this watch's time and alarm, basically one way to enter both.

1) With the watch in the regular time display mode (doesn't matter if 12 hour or military time), depress and hold the lower left hand button (mode button). After a few seconds the watch appears to shift to alarm mode and it is blinking. This puts you into the mode for adjusting the alarm.

2) If you want to adjust time, date, etc rather than alarm time, after you have done step one, simply press that same lower left button again, and then it will put you into the time mode, but this time the time mode is blinking and you can adjust the various components (seconds, minutes, hours). You can only move minutes, hours, etc forward, no way to move backward. You will start off with the second display blinking, probably skip that unless you need to adjust seconds. Depress the upper right button to shift to the next option (minutes) and you will see the minute display blinking. Adjust the minutes by depressing the lower right button. When finished depress upper right button to move to next option (hours) depress the lower right button to move the minutes/hours/month/date forward as necessary, when you finish just press the lower left button again and it pulls you out of adjust mode and you are back in regular time viewing.

I had to post this because I've had this problem in the past and it killed me. Its kind of intuititve after you get into the adjusting mode by pressing the lower left button- remember, initially it will put you into adjust alarm mode, but press again and you will get into adjust time mode.

SOURCE: Kenneth Cole Wrist Watch unable to remove link

First you have to find out what sort of pins or even screws are used to keep links together.
Examine both bracelet sides and find the side where pin ends have a groove.
Start with a tiny screwdriver and start to unscrew one of the screws. If it turns, but doesn't come out, that means you have a pins instead.
For removing pins the best would be pin removing tool (approx.5GBP on ebay), but it's possible to do the job without it.
Take a hardened steel needle and blunt the sharp end to the approx. size of pin end diameter using any sharpening stone or sandpaper. Get an old towel and fold it to make a soft base for work (like small cusion). As you don't have a special bracelet holder you will need a pair of helping hands to hold the bracelet steady upright. You will need small hammer and pair of flat nose pliers as well.
NOTE: The pins MUST be driven split end out first, not vice versa. Make sure that the grooved pin ends are facing towel, not the needle and hammer!!!
Now place the watch on the folded towel, take that needle and smallest hammer you have and start driving the pin out using light blows. Do Not hit hard, as you will brake the needle, scratch your watch or even injure yourself. Watchmakers are using 45 gram hammer, so, calculate your strength of blows.
After a few blows check if the split end is coming out and when you see that the end is long enough to grab it with pliers, pull the pin out with pliers. When pulling, do NOT turn pliers, as pins tend to brake when twisted. Use firm grip and your strength to pull the pin without twisting.
After shortening the bracelet,make sure that the pins go back EXACTLY the same way as they came out- the blunt end first in the hole and the split (grooved) end last. Before doing that check remaining pins in bracelet to make sure that you put them back from the right side of bracelet.
It is recommended to use plastic hammer to drive pins back in or you will scratch or damage bracelet. If plastic hammer is not available use an old toothbrush handle (or some plastic item) as an absorber. Simply put pin into the hole as deep as you can with your fingers, put the toothbrush handle on split pin end and hit handle, not the pin.
Make sure that pin ends are flush with bracelet. If needed- hit few more times.
Job done!

Hope it'll help.

SOURCE: how to adjust time, day or alarn on Kenneth Cole

There are 2 buttons on the right side, depress the lower round button twice with a pointed object (like a pen). Only one number should appear (month) advance if desired with the top square button. Depress the round button again (once) to advance to next number and advance, continue this until you complete the settings.....

How do I reset the correct time on this watch?

That depends on the make / model of the watch.

Most mechanical watches, and some battery operated analog watches have a knob that can be pulled out half way, to set the date, and all the way, to set the time.

Most digital watches have at least two buttons: one (I'll call "A") for setting the mode, and "B" for incrementing some value.

Typically, one presses A briefly, to cycle the display through "clock, calendar, alarm, chronometer etc".

By holding A for a few seconds, likely, something will start to flash. This indicates setting mode. Pressing A briefly again, will cycle through seconds, minutes, hours, day of month, month, and possibly year. (perhaps in opposite order). Pressing B will increment whatever number is flashing. Holding A again, will save any changes, and return the watch to normal mode.

Digital display on my NEW casio baby g is too faint for me to see


I fix watches as a hobby, and I had a few that corrected this by replacing the battery. If that does not work then the quartz movement probably got wet. you would have to pop the case open remove the movement and clean it gently with a q-tip. You will also be able to see if the issue is with the plastic case that can probably be faded from wear or moisture. The plastic case can be cleaned with a q-tip with alcohol. Be careful not to get any liquids, magnets or dirt near the movement. I hope this helps! Marcelo

My DZ 7241 watch analog watch does not turn on?

please ckeck the crown of your analog time if it is pressed down, if it is pressed it is possible that even if it is a brand new watch, the battery has no power at all.. it is maybe that your newly purchased watch is been in its selling showcase fo a long time, so that the watch movement consume all the power of the analog's battery.. you have to replace the battery of your analog., Note: your watch has three batteries. I hope this will help..

After I changed a battery on R0614ZM TERNER watch, the display went berzerck and then blank altogether. Any ideas at all?

Some watches have a "reset" button or combination of buttons that must be pushed to clear all the electronic registries on the watch's little computer after you replace the battery. You might try taking off the watch back and seeing if your watch has this requirement. Even then, it's not always a perfect solution. Last week, I replaced the battery in a watch that had been dead for some time. The watch appeared to come alive again when I put the new battery in, but when I pushed the reset pin (on this movement, it was on the watch movement itself, next to the battery), the entire watch went dead. Nothing I did would wake it up. I removed the battery, waited 30 seconds, then re-inserted the battery. Problem solved; the watch powered up, and I was able to set the time and access all functions again.
On some digital watches from the 1980s, after replacing the batteries, you were supposed to push and hold all the external buttons for a few seconds to reset the watch. I don't think manufacturers still make watches that respond to this, but it is easier to try than taking off the back and re-installing the battery.
