Citizen Skyhawk Time Adjustment Problem

I just ordered this watch from Amazon and I found out that you cannot adjust for time zones which are in increments of 30 minutes and since I lived in India - I am in the +5.5 hr time-zone. and hence I was wondering whether I have to live with looking at my watch and always having to add 30 minutes to the time ! Does anyone know of a way to set the watch up to show the correct time in India (GMT +5.5)? It would be disappointing to get my Skyhawk and never wear it coz its always 30 minutes ahead or behind (!!) . Thanks much.

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.

My Citizen Skyhawk analog UTC hour hand is alway 1 hour ahead of the UTC digital hour. I've tried reset and the hour/min hand alignment process without success. Any ideas other than sending in the watch...


You've gotta go to the set setting, one click out on the knob and cycle through all the timezones using the B button (the lower one) to change all the settings to OF (for winter) or ON (for summer time). According to their website FAQ, they can't determine when daylight savings time goes into effect for all the different time zones so there is no automatic changeover from SMT to normal and back again. Disappointing, I know. I just spent half an hour going through their website looking for some master switchover as well.

Citizen Skyhawk - analogical time displaying incorrectly


Go to the "citzenwatch.com" website

Select "technical support"

You will see "setting instructions", where you must enter details of your watch.

Since they have a "setting "selection, your problem seems to be a common one!

Echo drive skyhawk,My watch's time zone is always one hour behind


You posted this in January, which is not during daylight savings time. The SMT setting doesn't turn on automatic DST switching for a particular timezone; rather, it is a manual override to adjust timezones to DST when it is actually active. There is no automatic DST adjustment for this watch (according to their FAQ). Turn SMT to OF for all timezones during winter months, and ON for applicable timezones during SuMmer Time (SMT).

Changing analoge time with citizen skyhawk


mode is time, press both buttons simultaneously. This did not work for some time. I tried pulling the crown in and out and then doing it. Probably not related. The buttons may not have been making good contact?
At any rate, this changes the analog hour to the selected zone.
