Re: How to set the digital and analog as the same time
They are supposed to move in unison, if you are setting the digital time and the analog is not moving, there is a problem with the watch and it could need service. Here is a link to the manual for the watch, the movement for the Blue Angels is a C300 and you will see the manual also states the time mechanisms move in tandem. http://www.citizenwatch.jp/support/pdf/coa/c300.pdf
Citizen does have service centers all over the globe, I am sure you can get the watch fixed if it does need service, You can find the local service center at the Citizen web site. Hope that helps.

Ignore the instructions I found its not as easy as they say first you need to sync the digital and analog to do this press all four buttons at once and hold for 3 secs tho sets the digital clock to 12 Now press mode till you see h-s hold reset till h-s flashes hold the start button in the analog will start moving its slow so be patient set analogue to 12 exactly ignore the minutes that have passed press preset the minute hand will automatically adjust once done press mode go to the main watch screen hold preset use mode to select hours minutes date year month etc and start to change the values keep it on 12 not 24 hour clock set the clock and press preset the analog will now automatically adjust to the time once done you can change to 24 hr mode if you wish
If its a super fibre 3 series with 4 butons ( set, adj, mode, light)
Just keep the set button pressed for about 5 seconds, then use mode to select next( date, time, year etc) and adj to change the respective data. Then press Set once and its done.
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.
Pull the knob out. The second hand should stop ticking.
Twist the knob clockwise until the correct time is displayed on the watch face.
Push the knob back in, and the the second hand will resume ticking.
Press and hold the "Set" button for 2 seconds. The "Set" button is on the lower right sidePress the "Date Advance" button on the upper right side. This will reset the seconds.
Press the "Change Mode" button on the lower left to set the hour. The hour will flash. Press the "Date Advance" button until the correct hour is displayed.
Press the "Change Mode" button again to set the correct 10s unit (first digit 1 or 0) for the minutes. Press the "Date Advance" button until the correct first digit of the minutes is displayed. Repeat this step to set the second digit of the minutes.
Repeat Steps 1 through 4 of this section to set the year, month, date and day and whether to use 12- or 24-hour time for your watch.
When finished, press the "Set" button (on the lower right) to return to the current time view and lock in your setting.
Press and hold the "Mode" button on the right side of your Arnette digital watch for three seconds to change the watch's mode. Press and hold the "Mode" button repeatedly until flashing digits indicate that you have entered the watch's time-setting screen.
Use the top and bottom buttons on the left side of your Arnette digital watch to increase and decrease number values as desired.
Press and hold the "Mode" button repeatedly to exit the time-setting screen and return the watch to time-telling mode.
Set Analog Watch
Pull out the watch crown on the right side of your Arnette analog watch.
Turn the watch crown clockwise to adjust the hands of your Arnette analog watch to the appropriate time.
Push the watch crown back in when you are finished setting the time on your Arnette analog watch.
The digital timepiece on a watch is set using the function buttons on the outer part of the watch face. To set the digital time, press and hold the upper left button until the seconds starts blinking. Press the lower right button to reset the seconds to "00."
Push the lower left button to move to the Daylight Savings Time portion of the watch. Use the lower right button to toggle between "On" and "OFF."
Press the lower left button twice. The hours unit will start blinking. To advance the hour, press the lower right button repeatedly until the correct hour is displayed. If you need to move the hours unit backwards, press the middle right button until the correct hour is displayed. When the hour is set, press the lower left button to switch to minutes, and use the same commands to change the minutes unit.
After the time is set, press the upper left button to exit the digital time setting function.
Setting Analog Time
You may find after setting the digital timepiece that the analog display does not match. When this occurs, you need to set the analog time. To set the analog time, press the lower left button 6 times. Next, press and hold the upper left button until the digital time starts to blink. This indicates that you are in analog time setting mode.
Analog time adjustment is completed using the lower right button. Every time you press the button, the analog time will advance 20 seconds. If you need to make a big change to the analog time, press and hold the lower right button to make the hands move faster. Once the analog time is set, press the upper left button to exit the analog time setting mode.
Hold "set" button until it starts blinking, then use "set" and "mode" buttons to switch between things to change/change them (I forget which does which, but it will become clear when you push a button.)
Also, when setting, it reads in 24-hour time; if you're setting it in the afternoon, keep going under the hour is current+12 (e.g. 16:00 for 4pm), otherwise the date will be wrong half the time.
In the time mode, press the upper right button for 2 seconds and the time display will flash. Then press the same button untill the entire time will flash, or both hour and minutes flash at same time. When the hour and minutes flash at same time, this adjust mode is the adjusting of the analog left display (A1). Now, press the lower button for adjusting de hour shown at the digital display that shows the same hour at analog display. This method is to adjusting the 8982 that is the "father" of 8988. Like a Citizen collector, and don´t know any website that you can view the setting instruction of 8988, only the 8982 is disposable here: http://www.citizenwatch.com/downloads/techguides/8982.pdf
