Citizen BL717459L - Alarm sound is too low

I have a brand new Citizen BL717459L watch, but the alarm sound is too low. Is it a defect or is there any setting to increase the sound violume? I didn't remove the plastic protector at the back of the watch. Can it affect the sound volume? Would appreciate any help. ... Thanks in advance.

No, there is nothing wrong with the alarm in your watch.
The sound in all watches are generated by passing vibrations to the metal tweeter which is connected to the watch caseback inside the watch. As the surface of the watch is quite small, there is not efficient power to spred the vibrations over the caseback surface, hence low volume of the alarm. No wristwatch in the world is capable of loud alarm sound yet. This is something the scientists have to work with.
The plastic protector is definetly affecting the volume. Take it off and you will notice slightly better sound. This protector actually is ment to protect watch caseback from scratches prior to selling it to the customer and have no use after that. In fact it only collects the dirt and bacteria and can affect your skin as the caseback as well.
Another sound improvement can be the new battery if the original is underpowered. Alarm feature uses the most of the energy stored in battery and the power consumption is higher than all watch movement parts put together.

Citizen QA4360 Sporty watch after battery replacement dont alarm. What is the problem wit it?


If the watch now makes no sound at all, no beeps ever, It seems like the alarm unit noise generator, has been disturbed when you opened it. Ignore the battery and look for the sound transducer behind the holes in the case where the sound comes out. Is it dirty or have any wires to it broken?

I have an older citizen promaster - 410487 5862-F80103TA - the alarm wont turn off


The alarm-setting process for your Citizen Promaster watch is similar to the process used to set the time and date. Access the Alarm mode on your watch by pressing the bottom left button until "AL" is displayed. Use the watch's bottom left button to advance the flashing and the buttons on the right side of the watch to set the alarm to the desired time. If that doesnt help, then I would HIGHLY suggest you ask Citizen at their website as follows: http://www.citizenwatch.com good luck

I have citizen navihawk and the alarm chime is not working. What could be the problem??


Did this start after you had the battery changed? It is not uncommon for the alarm contact spring to get broken off that way.

I purchased thr Citizen BL717459L at an auction. How do I set it?


Pull the crown out 2 clicks and rotate it to set the hands push it one click in to set the date. If you need to set your chrono hands or resynchronize them then pull the crown out 2 times and push the upper button until the hand is synchronized with the 12, the lower button should adjust the other dial the same way. If you have a third dial that needs synched only pull the crown out 1 click and push the top button to synch the hand on the dial.

Setting a Citizen Chronograph watch


assuming the battery isn't dead (IF IT IS DON'T TAKE THE BACK OFF, YOU WILL LOSE THE SPRING THAT MAKES THE ALARM SOUND) the button on the bottom right click it until the function selector is pointed to time, then pull the button out, then the top two buttons i believe change the hour hands. before setting the time you will need to zero this watch out, or calibrate it or the date will not change in synch with the time at midnight.

my battery is dead and i am a truck driver and am therefore having a difficult time (no pun intended) finding a place i can get parked to have my battery changed. please believe me when i tell you that you will lose this spring, a jeweler lost mine once and it took months to order a new one

In case you didn't get the other one.
Now sure if you are still looking for a solution or not but just came across your problem. The lower right-hand button, the one used to turn the alarm off and on, can actually be pulled out to set the alarm. Pull out the knob, adjust the alarm time, push back in and push one more time to actually set the alarm. Hope this helps.
