SOURCE: Surface Watch Model 31819 How do you turn the alarm off?

I have a Surface Watch. Not sure if it's the same model number, but the button set up is the same. Here's what I did:

Hold down the bottom right button. While you're holding it down, press the top right button. My bottom right button doesn't seem to always work, so it made it rather difficult to figure out what has going on.

SOURCE: Sweep 2nd hand operation & watch time setting on my Pulsar watch.

The larger second hand on the Pulsar PF8036 is part of the stopwatch feature. The upper button starts/stops the stopwatch feature, and the lower button operates the lap/reset function. Why they made the larger hand work only with the stopwatch instead of the smaller hand to the left is beyond me, but that's how it is designed.

How do you set a popart pop-693ad watch


Ok, it took awhile to remember, but to reset the analog time or the day or anything else, first push the "mode" button which is at the 8:00 position on the side of the watch, 3 times. The first push will bring up the stopwatch, the 2nd push will change the alarm time, the 3rd push will highlight the seconds which on the watch face is at the 6:00 position. Release after the 3rd push and push the "reset" button which is located at the 4:00 position. It will start flashing the hour first. If that is what you need to change, then push the "start" button which is at the 2:00 position. Either keep pushing the start button to set the hour or hold the button in if you have more than a couple of hours to change. When that is done, if you need to change the minutes, push the "reset" button again and the minutes should be highlighted and do the same thing with the "start" button until you have the minutes set where you want. When you are done changing whichever thing needs to be set, including the alarm time, push the "mode" button and everything will stay set. This is for the Pop Art 693 AD watch which if you buy through ebay, it's an awesome watch with dual analog/digital time displays, etc. it comes with no instructions. If all else fails, go to the jewelry counter at a Walmart and hopefully the worker there can help. We found that once with a different watch. I hope this helps everyone!!

Set reserve indicator on invicta 6106


Here is how to set the Invicta 6106 Invicta 6107 and other similar models with the ISASWISS 8173 movement with the following functions:
TIME - DATE - DAY - ALARM - GMT - POWER RESERVE

DO THINGS IN THIS ORDER AND YOU WILL FIND IT TO BE VERY EASY! After you understand how to set ALL the functions you can skip steps later to set individual functions but for now just do it exactly step by step:
1. Unscrew the center crown (if it is a screw down crown) and pull it all the way out (this is position 2) and turn it until you see the DAY sub-dial at the 6:00 position set to the day BEFORE today. There is no QUICK SET for the day on this movement so you must just keep turning the crown and hour hand past 12 midnight and watch the day pointer until it gets to the day you want - the day BEFORE today.
2. Now set the time to 6:00 (am or pm doesn't matter at this point). This is very important because you do not want the time to be between 9:00pm and 12:00pm when you set the date later on - we are using 6:00 just to be safe.
3. Push the crown all the way in - you don't have to screw it down.
4. Now pull out the crown very gently to the 1st position - just one "click" out. Now turn the crown AWAY from you to set the date to the date BEFORE today - this appears in the small window at the 4:00 position.
5. Now pull the crown all the way out again to position 2 and turn it away from you until it goes past 12 midnight and TODAY's DAY AND DATE are showing and then adjust the hour and minute hands to the current time - be sure to set the hour to AM or PM and push the crown all the way in. If you wish to set the seconds exactly - with the crown pushed in watch until the small seconds hand in the sub-dial at 2:00 is exactly at 60 and then pull the crown out to Position 2. Set the time ahead a minute or so and push the crown in when the actual time is the time you have set - you can set it to atomic clock time on the internet or by another watch that sets itself to atomic time.
6. Now the DAY, DATE and TIME are set to current. Now when the hour hand passes 12 at midnight tonight the DAY and DATE will advance correctly.

YOU CAN STOP HERE IF YOU WISH - but you can continue on to set the ALARM and the GMT indicators as follows:

7. To set the GMT hand (the one with the red-bordered pointer) the crown is pushed all the way in and screwed down. Now simply hold the bottom pusher in for a few seconds until you hear a beep - now you can start pushing it and watch the GMT hand moving - one push at a time for small adjustment or hold it down to make it move faster. When you stop pushing it another beep indicates that it is OUT of the setting mode - so if you want to adjust it again just hold it in until short beep and start pushing the lower pusher same as above.

Understanding GMT (or second time zone): Note that the GMT hand time is indicated on the 24 hour dial (think in military time where 3:00AM is 0300 and 3:00PM is 1500) using the very small numbers around the very outside of the dial. When the local time is 3:00PM if GMT is adjusted for the SAME TIME ZONE as you are in now the GMT HAND will be pointing at the small "15" which is between the 7:00 and 8:00 hour markers. If the local time is 3:00AM and the GMT is adjusted for the SAME TIME ZONE as you are in now the GMT HAND will be pointing at the small "3" between the 1:00 and 2:00 hour markers. So lets say you are in Pacific Time Zone and it is now 3:00pm local time and showing on the minute and hour hands - and for example you want the GMT hand to show Eastern (New York) time which is 6:00pm (in military time that is 1800 indicated by the very small 18 which aligns with 9:00) - hold in the bottom pusher until you hear a beep - now start pushing it in short increments or hold it down to move it faster until it points to small 18 (large 9). Now the GMT will indicate the hour in the EASTERN time zone while the main hour hand indicates your local time.
7. To set the ALARM - unscrew the crown and pull it to Position 1. Turn it TOWARDS you (if you turn it way from you will set the date which you don't want to do) and you will see the hand with the white pointer and the word "Alarm" in tiny writing on it move clockwise. Set the ALARM to the time you want. Push in the crown and screw it down.
8. To activate the ALARM push the TOP PUSHER once - the small hand in the POWER RESERVE sub-dial will move slightly and then it will move again (give it a second or so) and you will hear a BEEP - now the alarm is activated and the small hand points to the "ON" label. When the alarm sounds if you wish to stop it push the top pusher. But it will stop on its own and then repeat a few minutes later - you can just leave it alone if you wish. Note that the Alarm will turn OFF after sounding - so if you want to wake up for work on time tomorrow be sure the ALARM indicator is pointing to "ON".
9. To deactivate the ALARM when the small hand is pointing towards the "ON" label simply push the top pusher again and and the small hand will move clockwise down to the "OFF" label.
10. POWER RESERVE sub-dial. To align the Power Reserve sub-dial hand (after battery change) pull the crown out to Position 1 and push the top pusher until the hand points to 0%. Push the crown back in and screw it down.
11. Reserve Indicator - the instructions for this movement states that holding down the top pusher for 3 seconds will move the POWER RESERVE hand to the power reserve scale - but this is confusing because the hand never actually stays on the power reserve scale - it will only stay on "ON" or on "OFF".
However - I believe that this is the way it works. When you push the top pusher with the small hand in the "OFF" position it will momentarily move to the power reserve scale and stop for a second before it moves again to "ON" - I believe that this reading indicates the POWER RESERVE just before it moves again to the "ON" position..

I've lost the owner's instructions and need directions for setting the alarm.


  • Unscrew the crown (the main knob on the center right side of the watch casing), wait until the second hand is at the 12 o'clock position, and pull the crown knob up so that it clicks once.
  • 2 Press the button below the crown knob repeatedly until the hands of the alarm dial point to the time within the next 12 hours that you want the alarm to ring. Pressing the button once will move the alarm one minute forward. Pressing and holding the button will move the alarm forward quickly.
  • 3 Pull the crown knob one click further out and turn to adjust the main hands to the correct time, to take into account the time you took to set the alarm.
  • 4 Push the crown knob two clicks back into its normal position, and screw it into place until it locks.

    How to set Seiko alarm chronograph alarm?


    Without the watch model it is hard to help you set the watch. Some Seiko watches use the watch stem which has two positions. Sometimes it is hard to identify the indentations so you may want to pull the stem all the way out then carefully push the stem to the first indentation. This will activate the alarm until it is pushed all the way in. When it is in the alarm on position, you can use the buttons to set the alarm time. However, I have 10 Seiko watches, and they are all unique to their functions, so it is best that you go to the link below and put the caliber code from the case back and look at the instructions.

    I need instructions on setting the alarm for the Pulsar Chronograph 100M. I'm able to set everything else. Your response is greatly appreciated. THANKS!!


    I answered this for different Fossil watch post, but I believe it will be the same for your watch.
    I'll re-post the answer below.
    ------

    To set the alarm on these models of Pulsar watches, do the following:
    Looking at the face of the watch, there are two buttons and a crown on the right side. The TOP button is Button "A". - The BOTTOM button is Button "B".
    There are 3 positions on the crown: IN (#0), FIRST CLICK (#1) & SECOND CLICK (#2). 
    The small dials located at the bottom of the watch face (6 O'clock) are the alarm minute and hour dials.

    First, pull the crown out to the second 'click' (position #2) ... This is all the way out. (STOP THERE! Pulling harder will harm your watch! Don't try to pull past position #2!)
    Second, set the correct time. (plus one or two minutes... time to complete this.)
    Third, with the crown still out to position #2, push button "B" (bottom) until the alarm minute and hour hands are set to the present time (same as the large dials).
    Fourth, push the crown all the way in- to position #0.
    The current time on the large dial should read the same as the small alarm 'time'. {This is the CURRENT TIME, not the alarm SOUND SET.}
    To set the alarm SOUND time, pull the crown out to the first click (position #1).
    Push button "B" until the dials of the alarm are at the time you want the alarm to sound... It can only be set within 12 hours! ... It does NOT know "am or pm".
    When the desired time is set for the "alarm sound", push the crown all the way in (position #0).
    The alarm dials will now indicate the time for your alarm to sound, NOT the current time. (this way, you know that the alarm is engaged.)
    To reset the alarm- or disable it, pull the crown out to the first click (position #1) and hold button "B" down until the dials advance and stop at the current time... it will stop at the current time- then release button "B". --- Push the crown back in (position #0) and the alarm will now be disabled.

    If the alarm dials are always moving and at the current time, you know that the alarm is disabled.
    If the alarm dials are stationary and not moving with the time, you know that the alarm is engaged and set to the time shown.

    I hope this helps.

    Need instructions on National Geographic Men's watch #NG010GYSK




    go to Buliva web site and look for the chorograph 561/598
    FEATURES
    1. Hours, minutes, seconds and date display.
    2. 60 minute Chronograph (CHRONO) with minutes and
    seconds display.
    3. 24 hour hand, permanently synchronized with the normal
    12 hour hand.
    A. SETTING THE TIME
    1. Pull the crown out to position “3” (See diagram). If the crown has
    a “screw-down” lock, then unscrew the crown lock first by turning
    the crown toward you, then pull it to position “3”. Do not forget to
    screw the crown back “IN” after all setting is completed.
    2. Turn the crown towards you (hands moves clockwise) until the
    date changes at approximately midnight.
    3. Continue turning the hour and minute hands to the correct time.
    If it is afternoon you must go past 12 o’clock again (noon) to set
    the correct time.
    4. When the correct time is set,push crown back to position “1”.
    B. SETTING THE DATE
    1. Pull crown to position “2”(See proceeding diagram).The watch
    will continue to run.
    2. Turn the crown away from you until the correct date appears.
    3. Once the date is set, push the crown back to position “1”.
    Note: Do NOT set the date between the hours of 8:00 PM and
    3:00 AM.This would not damage the watch,but the date may need
    to be reset later.
    C. CHRONOGRAPH (CHRONO) ADJUSTMENT
    If the chrongraph second hand is not positioned at the proper
    starting position (12 o’clock or “zero” position), use the below
    procedure.It does not need to be repeated unless the watch
    receives an impact sufficient to move the hand out of position, or
    the Battery has been changed.
    1. Pull crown out to position “3”.
    2. Push button “A” to move the Chrono Second hand (long hand) to
    the “0” or 12 o’clock position. Each button push will move the
    hand one step – BUT holding the button down will advance the
    hand rapidly.
    3. Push crown back to position “1”.
    D. USING THE CHRONOGRAPH (CHRONO)
    Note:
    The maximum chrono reading is 60 minutes, However the
    chrono will continue running once 60 minutes has passed. The
    resulting one hour periods may be added together mentally to keep
    track of longer periods.
    For example – If you know that approximately one hour has
    passed since you started the chronograph, and the chrono reads
    25 minutes, then you know that the chrono has been running 60
    minutes plus 25 minutes, which is one hour and 25 minutes.
    1. Push Button “A” to start the chronograph. Push button “A” again
    to stop the chronograph.
    2. Push button “B” to return the two chronograph hands to the
    “Zero” or starting point.
    3. The Chronograph can be stopped and started again
    (Button “A”), repeatedly, to “ADD” times together.
