You have to get in the right time zone, that’s why you are an hour off (and this may also occur if you are in an area that switches between daylight savings time each spring and fall).
Press mode until ZO appears on the watch face.
Press and hold ADJ. Time zone will begin to flash.
Select start/stop or adjust to get to the right time zone P, C, M, E (pacific, eastern, Mountain, central)
If desired , press mode to select DST (daylight savings time) and press start/stop or adjust to turn it on or off.
Press adjust when done.

How do I reset a Marquis radio controlled watch that indicates the wrong time minutes?

Simultaneously press two buttons. It reset all, you show "Po". Press buton two (down placed) once quickly or more to set 12:00. Press buton 1 for longer as 3 s. You see 59. After watch synchronized if have good connection with sender, if not you must wait or adjust time by "hand". In Poland I must wait for automatic adjusting ca 3-4 hours.

Crane & Villeroy watch (radio controlled) After fitting a new battery it shows the time 1 hour behind the correct time.

It sounds like your watch is on daylight saving time (DST) or it is set to the wrong time zone.

If you press the "Mode" button you will enter the settings menu and you should be able to change this by pressing one of the other buttons. Some experimenting will be needed.

If it is 1 hour out it could be on daylight saving time setting (DST).

If you haven't got any instructions you can get instructions from the Timex web site "".

At the bottom of the screen click on manuals/downloads", then on "product
manual download"

Enter your watch type in the search box and click on "search"

It seems likely that the setting instructions for radio controlled watches of one make are very similar so almost any of their radio controlled watch instructions may be used.

The user instructions list includes ones labeled "universal radio controlled book". Choose the one for your area and follow the instructions. You have nothing to loose!

Good luck.
