Try JCPenneys first to get the manual.

    Is it a chrongraph watch?

    There are three buttons
    A. Button (top)
    B. Button (bottom)
    C. Button (middle)

    Middle is standard for setting time.

    Using your Chronograph Function

    Measure a single time span

    a.) Press pusher A to start the chronograph. The large second handle will begin sweeping clockwise. This allows you to visualize the elapsed time on the second graduations.

    b.) To stop the Chronograph, press pusher A again. The elapsed time is measured in hours (Counter 1), minutes (Counter 2) and 1/5ths of a second by viewing where the large second hand stops.

    c.) To return the chronograph to a zero setting, press pusher B.

    Measuring an interrupted time span

    a.) Press pusher A to start the chronograph. The large second hand will begin sweeping clockwise. This allows you to visualize the elapsed time on the second graduations.

    b.) To interrupt the time measurement process, press pusher A again. If you wish to resume with your time measurement press pusher A. Numerous separate time spans can thus be measured cumulatively.

    c.) To return the chronograph to a zero setting, press pusher B.

I just got this watch but the alarm function doesn't seem to work after following the manual's instruction and trying it several times? Any suggestions on how to fix it?

If you can't set the alarm function follwing the instructions of a new watch, might mean that this watch is defective and should be covered by warranty. If you mess with it, you'll lose the right to claim warranty service, so should return it to the shop where you bought it or take it to authorized servce according to warranty terms.
