Question about Watches
Hi all, I recently changed the battery in my watch, but now the buttons no longer work. So I can't amend the time or date. Any advice?
When you opened it up, you inadvertently broke the seals around the buttons that keep out moisture and dirt. Now, that you have closed the watch, the dirt is pressing against the seals instead of being the blocks against the dirt. Instead of tahing the whole watch apart again I suddest you get some WD 40 or CRC sprat and spray it on one button at a time and exercise it in and out until it is free. If that doesn't work...open the watch and clean each pin with the spray and a cue tip!

Instructions To Set The Time On The Diesel DZ7071 Watch
Ok the first and most important thing to know about this watch is that it has an unusual timezone function (unusual to me at least). This allows the watch to display two different times. Time 1 (or T1) is the primary time (the time of the place where you spend most of your time!). The time can only be adjusted whilst the watch is in the T1 mode (T1 should be displayed in the bottom left corner of the screen). Holding down the top right button for one or two seconds will temporarily replace the current T1 time with the T2 time. Holding down this same button for several seconds will toggle the current time mode to T2 and the watch will continue to function in the second time zone until you toggle it back to T1.
The second most important thing to know is that you can only set the time whilst in the T1 mode. When in T1 mode hold down the top left button until the watch enters the settings menu (it should say "Light" at the top of the screen) now use the bottom left button to toggle through the settings menu until you get to the time settings. I think this part of the process if sufficiently straight forward so I'm not going to go into more details here, all I'll add is that once you have the watch set to the desired time mode 12h/24h time and date you just need to press the top left button to save the settings and return to the main time screen.
To set a secondary timezone time you have to first toggle the watch to the secondary time zone mode (hold the top right button for several seconds and the T1 indicator should change to T2 (and the watch will now be displaying the time that is currently set for the secondary timezone). This time is based on the primary time by simply telling the watch a number of whole hours ahead or behind the primary time. To adjust this hold down the top left button for several seconds, the watch will then say "offset" now use the buttons on the right to add or subtract hours from the primary time. Once set press the top left button again to return to the main time screen. Finally hold down the top right button for several seconds once more to return the watch to the T1 mode.

These are the instructions for the AD0721. They might apply to your model, too. I hope this helps:
The analog setting of the watch takes place by pulling out the knob (kind of tough) and adjusting, like a regular analog watch. The analog and digital displays are will NOT stay in sync, unfortunately.

You can use the manual to manually reset the time. After you succeed in setting UK time zone, wait until midgnigth: it should synchronize itself with the time signal from Germany. If unsuccessful to do so, it will keep attempting to synchronize itself at 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5.
Read the manual to figure out how to place the watch on a window sill. It might be better to be outside.
Keep in mind that the success of the operation depends on meteorological conditions.
