Hi Frank

Does the watch have a 'screwdown' crown on it or pull out crown (also known as a dust proof crown). A screwdown is usually on a model which has a waterproofing of around 100 meters (330ft) +

To change the date ( the quick way usually but not always) GENTLEY pull out the crown (or first unscrew if it's a screwdown) to the first 'click' you will feel it. then gentley wind the crown down towards the six or up to the tweleve (some change mostly its down towards the six) and Hey Presto the date changes automatically. This beats winding it through 24 hrs.

Now to change the time, from the date set one more gentle click, or two from the original (standby position). then you are free to move the hands as you please.

Hope this helps Frank

How do I set my watch


It all depends on the type of watch you have.

Manually, the time (and date) are set by releasing the crown wheel and turning it so that the hands move clockwise to the correct time. If you have a date function, you may have to cycle the crown wheel quite a few times to reach the correct day and date.

On digital watches, the user guide will indicate which buttons should be pressed to set the time and date. Refer to the user guide that came with your watch, go onto the manufacturer's website or go back to the store where you bought the watch and ask them to show you how to do it.

On smart watches, the time should be set automatically when the watch synchronises with your smartphone or wifi signal.

My cat watch shockmaster s1143 is delayed by 12hrs. the date indicator didnt match for the current day today. pls help.


When you set the time and date, you set it to (example:) 12 noon rather than 12 midnight. Just turn your time back by 12 hours.

I cannot set the time on a wr165


here's a simple instructions of setting your watch


Watch setup instructions
for the Armitron Instalite All-Sport :

Mode B / \ C Date
' '
Light A \ / D Alarm

_____________________________________

Set time time / date

Press and hold B (Mode) untill alarm hours flash
Press D (Alarm) to advance these

Press B (Mode) again, seconds will flash,
press D (Alarm) to advance these

Press C (Date), minutes flash, press D to advance these

Press C again, hours flash, press D to advance these

Press C again, month flashes, press D to advance these

Press C again, Date flashes, press D to advance these

Press C again, Date flashes, press D to advance...... [suggestion from Chikita]]

Activating/Deactivating Hourly Chime

1. From "Normal Time Mode", press and hold "D" (Alarm) and
at the same time press "C" (Date) once. Hourly chime symbol,
( a house shape) appears in "chime" windows to indicate
the hourly chime will beep every hour.

Activatin/Deactivating Alarm

2. With "D" (Alarm) still pressed, press "C" (Date) again. Alarm symbol
( a clock shape with waves above it) appears in the
upper right to indicate the 24 hour alarm is now activated.

[I assume this "toggles" between off and on states,
so performing it again should turn off the alarm]
i hope this will help you.

How to advance date 4 or 5 days on a Timex T40021


This watch should have a "quick set" date function that lets you advance the dates by turning the setting crown. To get the watch in this mode, pull the set stem out half-way. At that point, turning the setting crown will advance the date on the watch without turning the hands. One some watches, finding the right position for the set stem can be a bit tricky--either it's not out far enough or it's out just a bit too far and the time hands turn. You may have to try pulling the stem in and out a few times to get it just right.

A word of advice: watches are generally designed to advance the date, not to turn it back. It's suggested that if you need turn the date back, you actually advance the date wheel up to 30 days to get to the date you want. Some watches do permit you to turn dates backwards, but I prefer not to risk the chance of hanging up the little springs and mechanism that are designed to advance the date indicator.

One final note: I have serviced several Timex mid-size (ladies or kids size) Expedition watches that lack a quick-set date. Many Timex watches in that size do have a quickset date like I've just described to you, so I have no idea whether these watches happen to have a cheaper movement or if they have some internal damage (it's been the same model each time). At any rate, for those watches, I have had to use the incredibly slow and painful process of advancing the time 24 hours to advance the date. With those watches, if the date is too far advanced by a day or two, it may be easier to stop the watch for 24-48 hours until the date is correct, rather than spend a huge amount of time spinning the crown to advance the time. Hopefully, your watch will have the more sophisticated movement, though.

I have a Fossil DQ 1138 and I cannot set the time or date.


You can get instructions for your watch from the Fossil web site.

Go to "fossil.com", go to the bottom of the page and you will see a
menu, click on "customer care", and then look under "Product Info" on
the left and you will see "watch instructions"

Click on this and a list of diagrams and watch descriptions will appear. Put your cursor over any of the descriptions and a diagram of the watch face will appear. Search the list until yours appears and download.

Unable to reset brietling colt, even after ajusting stem to 1st and 2nd postions.


mcdevito75 here, Let"s hope your description of the problem with your watch is wrong. Try this sequence, First, wind your watch, the automatic continues to wind your watch when you where it but to get it started, wind it 20--30 times. 2nd, your crown locks down, turn the stem Clockwise to un-lock it (the stem) now pull the stem all the way out then back in 1/2 way to set date. Set DATE to DATE before the real date turn crown counterclockwise. Now pull out crown all the way and turn clockwise to set the DATE and time (real Date) push the crown back in and turn counterclockwise to lock the crown. If this doesn"t work, look for a small watch repair shop in your area for this adjustment.

My me1020 came without instructions and i do not know how to set the date, min nor theday please help


Actually there is no instruction manual for ME1020 available on Fossil website except for how to replace the battery. When you try to match ME1020 model with the available diagrams, there is no match (4 eyes). To set the time, pull the crown out to the second position. Now set the min/hour hands. Date hand is linked to it so keep rotating the crown till the date is set is set correctly. Now remaining is the day setting. Notice that the day changes every 24 hour mark on the 24 Hour sub-dial, so cross this mark to change the day. Go reverse & again cross the 24 hour mark to get the next day. Repeat this till you get the correct day setting. Now your day is also set along with date & time!
