Question about Tag Heuer Kirium (CL1212.BA0705) Wristwatch
How do you adjust the time and the other features?
AQUASWISS TRAX MODEL:
There are three adjustment knobs on the right side of the watch. Two are smaller than the main time adjustment knob. For clarification I will label:
Top knob: #1
Middle knob: #2
Bottom knob: #3
To adjust the stopwatch feature:
1. Turn #2 counter-clockwise until it pops out to its adjusting position.
2. Pull #2 towards the right until you feel the first click. (There are two click positions).
3. Simultaneously hold both #1 and #3 down until you see the 1/16 hand and the 30 minute hand rotate automatically to a fixed position.
Now you are ready to calibrate the stopwatch feature.
4. Click mulitiple times on #3 and you will see the 30 min. had move clock wise incrementally with every click. Keep clicking on #3 until the 30 min. hand reaches its apex (to its 12:00 position).
5. Now click multiple times on #1 and you will see the 1/16th hand move in very small increments clockwise. You may be bold and try to hold down #1 and let it swing as close as possible to the 12:00 position and then multiple click #1 to get it precisely to its apex.
You are almost done.
6. Now simultaneously hold #1 and #3 until you see both the 1/16th second hand and the 30 minute hands auto-rotate clockwise to their respective 12:00 positions.
Fantastic! However, now you have to return the watch back to its original locked position. This is where it could get a little tricky.
7. Make sure the time is correct. Using #2 fully extended to its 2nd click position you may adjust the time.
8. Using #2 extended to its 1st click position you may adjust the date. (Here's the trick, do not set the date for today's date. Rather, set it for the day before or in some cases, 2 days before. I will explain in a moment).
9. Now, depress #2 fully back towards the main body of the watch as best as possible and while holding down #2 turn it clockwise until it locks into position.
During this operation you may notice that the date will go forward until the watch locks into position, ergo, I had to make sure the date was for the day before...and it some cases, 2 days before.
Your watch is ready to use.
The stopwatch feature for this analog watch works very similarly to that of an actual stopwatch.
Press and hold #1 once to stop the 1/16 hand. Press and hold #3 to have both the 1/16th second hand and the 30 minute hands return to their 12:00 positions. Now you are ready to race!
Press #1 to start the stopwatch. Press #1 to stop the stopwatch. Press #3 to return the hands back to their respective positions. You may even press #3 after you press #1 to get a second reading but I will let you figure that out for yourself.
Hope this was helpful!

Need advice how to change time on tag kirium
Posted on Apr 11, 2009
Warning: This is if you don't have any professional watch tools. And I definitely recommend you taking it to a jeweler first.
That being said...
I was able to adjust my band by using a small nail and a pair of needle nose pliers...and Krazy Glue or Super Glue (last warning...you really should take it to pro)...
1. Push the any one of the pins that holds the wristband together until you see it protrude from the other side. While applying pressure to the pin, quickly grab it from the protruding side with the needle nose pliers and pull off the metal cap from the pin.
2. Note you will notice that the pins are actually 2 pieces! They are not screwed together and it makes for a pretty poor design since, one the pins are taken out and then replaced after taking out the appropriate links... they tend to get loose and you will lose that tiny metal cap that holds the pin in place.
3. A professional will have a clamp that is small enough to press these two pieces together. But even that is precarious. I strongly recommend that you carefully apply a drop of crazy glue on each end of the pin, after you are finished.
Final note: I was luck to have spare pins from the links I removed to replace the pin that worked out of its cap. That little sucker is lost to the watch gods. Have fun! Also... you can make final adjustments at the 3 pin location at the wristband release.
Hope this was helpful!

You should first try to adjust the band at the Clasp first. The clasp has three holes that you could easily move your band up or down into. If you need to remove one or more of the links, try the following.
