Set watch to CHR mode, pull out crown, all dials will return to 0 posn. HR shoul be displayed on left digital panel. Move hour hand by turning crown to posn half way between 12 and one, press top button (MIN should appear in left panel), set min to 6 o'clock posn. Push crown back in and set time for timezone nearest to where you are that is offset by one hour.

SOURCE: Citizen Skyhawk SMT date?

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.

SOURCE: 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).

My red hour hand doesn't stay the same time difference . Sometimes it's two hours behind BST and sometimes six!


mcdevito75 here, Sounds like your watch is showing a different time zone, refer to your owners manual or vist a locl jeweler for adjustment on timeing, setting your watch. Your watch may be set up to show different world time zones, if so, you may have hit a button and now your watch is showing time in a different time zone as an example London / New York.

Can you change UTC time to current time xone


If the store you purchased the watch at has not set the time to the correct time zone then obviously the different time zone (UTC in this case) that is showing on your digi face isnt exactly helpful....

Best bet is to go to the interactive watch instructions on www.citizenwatch.com to follow along on how to get it into your own time zone.
Just type in your model number exactly JR3060-59F into the search field. On the right side of the page is the Get Technical Info link..click on this choice. Now on this page is the next link...right side at the bottom of the list> Interactive setting instructions. The page changes again and you see the choice menu. Find Zone Settings...click and follow the instructions (note there is sound to it so turn your speakers on if you have them)

Setting instruction for Accurist world time wrist watch


Same just happened to me, performthe following:

The analogue hands are not precisely synchronised with
the digital time?

1. Press the lower right button to move the mode indicator
hand to CHR.
2. Pull the lower right button out one click. The hour, minute
and UTC hands will retract towards the straight up 12 O’clock
position. You will see UTC on the top half of the digital display.
3. Press the upper right button to advance the hands to the
straight up 24-hour position. Use the lower left button to go in
reverse.
4. Press the upper left button. You will see HR on the top half
of the digital display. Press the upper right button to advance
the hour and 24-hour hand clockwise until they both point
straight up at the 24-hour position. Use the lower left button to
move the hand anti-clockwise.
5. Press the upper left button. You will see MIN on the top half
of the digital display. Press the upper right button to advance
the minute hand clockwise or the lower left button to move
anti-clockwise until it is pointing straight up at the 12 O’clock
position.
6. Push the lower right button back in one click.
The watch malfunctions in some way and the above
procedures do not work.
1. Press the lower right button until the mode indicator hand
points to TME.
2. Pull the lower right button out one click. Press the other
three buttons down simultaneously for three seconds and
release. You will see 8’s on the digital display.
3. Press the upper left button. You will see UTC on the top half
of the digital display. Press the upper right button to advance
the hands of the top dial to the straight up 24-hour position.
Use the lower left button to go in reverse.
4. Press the upper left button. You will see HR on the top half
of the digital display. Press the upper right button to advance
the hour and 24-hour hand clockwise until they both point
straight up at the 24-hour position. Use the lower left button to
move the hand anti-clockwise.
5. Press the upper left button. You will see MIN on the top half
of the digital display. Press the upper right button to advance
the minute hand clockwise or the lower left button to move
anti-clockwise until it is pointing straight up at the 12 O’clock
position.
6. Push the lower right button back in one click

Citizen Skyhawk Time Adjustment Problem


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.
