Watch battery number for dakota watch

Hello I have a dakota watch radio controlled atomic time black band with a silver face. I took out the battery to replace it. But when I got to the store I lost it now I don't have the battery number. I called Dakota but I had no help. They told me that they had no technical support. I was hoping that you can help Thank You. Sincerly Peter.

    If you took out the battery, then you have to find the movement number. It is embedded on movement (some letters and numbers).
    By the movement number we can find the right battery.

I have a one year old berenger atomic time watch that has stopped working last week. May I perhaps need to get a new battery/ What does radio controlled watch mean? Thanks


I would try replacing the battery in your watch to see if it comes back to life. So-called "atomic watches" have tiny radio receivers in them that periodically listen for the official atomic time being broadcast via WWVB in Colorado. However, as you might imagine, it takes a lot more power to operate a radio receiver than it does to power a typical quartz wristwatch, and even with larger-capacity or double batteries, it's been my experience that these watches burn through batteries more quickly than traditional "set them yourself" watches.
An additional factor is that a watch that cannot find the WWVB signal will scan for long periods of time before putting its radio receiver into hibernate mode. So, if your watch has been stored in a basement, an interior room in a large building, or some other place where a radio signal can't penetrate, that would also shorten the watch's battery life.

My casio 3054 Waveceptor atomic watch isn't adjusting to atomic time even thought I placed it by a west window at night.


It's depends on where you are. For instance, where there is no time signal radio station, your (radio-controlled) watch can't turn itself (adjusted to atomic time).

How do I get the battery cover off of the 2005 logoart pitts steeler watch? Has spinning face with gold/silver plated band..


At a watch shop is the only safe way.
I've done it with needle nose pliers and scratched the watch every time.
At the watch shops they have a tool, even most wal marts and sears have watch battery replacement centers where they do it for the cost of the battery (no extra fees)

My best advice to you is to contact Dakota or send to Dakota. It may not be what you want to hear, but its probably going to be your best interest to send back to them so they can properly care for your watch.

I live 20 miles, south of Seattle, WA. Please give me hints, how I can receive Radio signal, for my E. Howard, E23GA, Atomic watch. I haven't been getting daily signals. Thank you, Dave Harvey,


Place the watch near a window that faces Colorado. best reception is at night although you should get a signal during the day where you are. The signal comes from a transmitter in Colorado. Also, make sure your watch is a model with the US frequency as there are different frequencies used in other parts of the world. Read more at http://www.ntp-time-server.com/atomic-clock.htm.

How to set time on my National Geographic Dakota Atomic Watch?


For the national geographic radio controled watch.
The easiest way to rest this watch is to remove the battery.
Once replaced the watch will flash set to 12. Push and hold the upper button till the hands spin. Press this button again to stop the hands. Tapping the upper button will make the hands move forword 1 sec. Set all the hands to 12. becareful, if you pass 12 you will have to go around again. to start the hands spinning again press and hold the upper button untill the hands move. Once all the hands are at 12, press the lower button and the screen should flas LON for london. Set the city code using the upper button to your area. press the lower button hard to confirm the information. The watch should set itself to the correct time. If it starts running from 12, place it on the window sill for the night so that it can get a signal.
