Vostok Komandirskie watch - setting the time so the hour advances


I have a 70s vintage Vostok Komandirskie Paratrooper watch with the green face and a manual wind It has a screw in crown at the 2 o clock position. I picked it up on ebay - appears to be unused . The issue is that the hour hand does not want to advance. You can set the time OK . It appears to keep the correct time minutes and seconds wise but won't advance the hour with normal operation.
This is the first russian watch I've owned. Am I missing something?
Any ideas. The watch is in mint shape and the luminosity is still present but faint.
Is there a quirk to setting the time or did I get an attractive Russian paperweght?

The crown holds in place by one little screw inside of the watch. It is a very easy fix - you just need too open the watch and tighten the screw.
Or even better solution - send it back for repair. All Vostok-Europe watches are covered by 24 months warranty.

Watch Manual for Sergio Valente model# F-IAGAG


These are operating instructions for an SV F-IAGAG (Sergio Valente) watch.

There are four buttons on the watch.

A: upper left
B: lower left
C: upper right
D: lower right

Pressing A turns on the watch face backlight.

Pressing B changes the mode.

From the normal time display mode, one press of B enters the stopwatch mode. In this mode, pressing C will start the stopwatch time count. Pressing C again will stop the count. Each additional press of C will start/stop the count. While the count is proceeding, pressing D will freeze the display of stopwatch time, yet the count will continue. Pressing D again will cause the display to begin updating with the running count. Each press of D will freeze/unfreeze the display update. When the count is stopped (with a press of C), pressing D will reset the count to zero. From this mode, press B again to return to time display mode.

From the normal time display mode, two presses of B enters the alarm time set mode. In this mode, either the hour or minute portion of the time display will be flashing. That which is flashing can be changed by pressing C. Pressing D will switch to the other portion (hours or minutes). Any time the alarm mode is entered and a change is made, the alarm is set to "on". This is indicated by a check mark in the circle display next to the "9" on the watch face. The alarm can be toggled "on" and "off" from the normal time display mode by holding down button D and pressing button C. Return to the normal time display mode by pressing button B while in the alarm time set mode.

From the normal time display mode, three presses of B enters the time set mode. Upon first entering this mode, the seconds display in the circle near the watch face "3" will be flashing. Pressing button C will reset the seconds to zero. Each press of the D button will advance to a different value field for adjustment. The field of adjustment will be flashing. The sequence of fields is (seconds - minutes - hours - date day - date month - date day). Pressing C will change the value. When adjusting the hours, both 24hr format, and 12hr AM/PM format is available. Each press of button C will advance the hour value. The sequence of 24hr format will be indicated with an "H" in the "seconds" circle (near the watch face "3"). After hour value 24 of the 24hr format, the next hour is a "12" value, with an "A" in the seconds circle. Twelve presses of button C will step through the AM hour values and present an "12" value with a "P" in the seconds circle. Twelve more presses advances through the PM hour values and returns to the 24hr format. Pressing button B will return to time display mode.

Pressing button C while holding down button D will toggle the alarm "on/off" state. The "on" state is indicated with a check mark in the display circle next to the "9" on the watch face.

My Emporio Armani 5330 has a problem in that the date advances at noon instead of at midnight so the 24 hour indicator on the bottom of the face is not in sync. How do I correct this?


Simply advance hands 12 hours forwards (clockwise). Just pull out crown to the time setting position and turn the watch hands forwards if the date is changing before midnight. If the date is changing after midnight - turn the hands 12 hours backwards. Don't do this when the actual time is between 10pm - 2am.

How to set the wr330 watch lost instructions.


On the face of the watch, there are four buttons arranged around the circle of the watch face in four positions. Starting with the upper left hand button (labelled SET), and working clockwise around the face of the watch (to ADJ., EL, and MODE), I'll label the buttons "A", "B", "C", and "D".

In other words...
Button "A" is the button labelled "SET" in the upper left hand corner of the watch.
Button "B" is the button labelled "ADJ." in the upper right hand corner of the watch.
Button "C" is the button labelled EL in the lower right hand corner of the watch.
Button "D" is the button labelled "MODE" in the lower left hand corner of the watch.

Setting the Time.
1. Press and hold D as if you were setting the alarm. As above, the stopwatch will momentarily appear and then after 2 seconds the alarm time will appear with the hour flashing.
2. Press and release D and the seconds on the time of day will begin to flash.
3. Press and release B to reset the seconds to zero provided they are below 30. If they are above 30, the seconds will reset and the minutes of the time of day will advance by one.
4. Press and release A to change from flashing seconds to flashing minutes/flashing hours/flashing day of the month/flashing month of the year/flashing day of the week. In each flashing mode, pressing and releasing B advances the value by one unit.
5. Press and release D to exit time setting mode.

    The automatic function is set by pressing and holding the lower right button. When the automatic function is set, an indicator icon will display on the watch face above the seconds unit. You can turn off the automatic backlight function by pressing and holding the lower right button until the icon disappears.

    Note that backlight causes a drain on the battery, and overuse of the backlight will greatly reduce battery life.

How do you change the time setting to 24 hours?


  • Press the "MODE" button---usually on the lower left side of the watch, but sometimes on the right center side---to cycle through to the time display.
  • Step 2 Press and hold the "SET" button---usually on the right lower side of the watch---until the seconds flash.
  • Step 3 Press "MODE" repeatedly to cycle through the displays that flash: from hours to minutes to month to date and day. At the end of the cycle is the hour display option. Make this option flash.
  • Step 4 Press the "SPLIT/RESET" button below the face of the watch to change the hour display option to "24-hour display." This is the same as military time. If there is a "NEXT" button on the upper-right side of the watch, use this to advance to the 24-hour option instead of using the "SPLIT/RESET" button. You may need to press a "START/SPLIT" button instead a "SPLIT/RESET" button to cycle between 12- and 24-hour display. The "START/SPLIT" button could be located below the watch face or on the upper-right side of the watch, depending on the model.
  • Step 5 Press the "SET" button again. You are now done. All PM hours should be displaying hours between 12 and 23.
