Go to the citizen watch website and look for the e870 instruction manual. Look for the "all reset" function and perform.

The watch must be fully charged, and then perform instructions. It may have been jarred or emf may have hindered its process.

Try it and see if this corrects your problem.

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 have an Invicta watch Model #6193. My question is does the second hand supposed to not move? And how does the power reserve work on this particular watch? My second hand doesnt move. I wondering is this...


As to the power reserve.....It's just there to give you an estimate of how much power is left in your battery. As far as your question about the second hand.....My guess is that you are looking at the hand for the GMT function (which stands for Greenwich MeanTime...Greenwich is a place in Great Britain where the prime time zone is located, but most people just use this function as a second time zone). Can you confirm or deny that my supposition is correct or not? (in regards to you thinking the GMT hand was the second hand?? Use clarification request if I am mistaken and when you explain again what you need answered, please also post whether or not the watch is keeping correct time or not. Thanks!! and Best of luck to you!

I have a seiko chonograph couturo alarm. 100m


Many of the Seiko Chronographs have the same setting options (mine is the lightweight "Titanium Sports").

First off, the alarm dial must show the same time as the actual main dial. If not you must adjust this first.

Pull the knob at number 4 position on the watch face out, until you feel two distinct notches/clicks (around 0.5mm travel) and the alarm will make a shrill buzzing for about 1 second.

Now turn the #4 knob to move the small alarm dial at the #6, to be the same as the actual time displayed on the main face, and press the #4 knob fully back in. This sets the alarm and the main time to the same ....er....time. You do not need to do this again, unless you adjust for daylight saving times during summer/winter.

Now you can set the alarm chime point.

Pull the #4 knob out again, but just one click. You should hear one ping from the alarm. Now press the button at #8 position. It will move the small alarm hands by 1 minute intervals, and if you keep it held in, the dial spins around quickly. This allows you to adjust the time the alarm will chime.

When you've got the alarm time and it's chime point set, leave the #4 knob at one click out.

If you wish to switch the alarm off simply press the #4 knob back in, and the alarm dial will spin around to the same time as the main dial.To re-enable the alarm pull the #4 out one click again. It's quite simple once you get the hang of it.

I just purchased an Invicta Sea Wizard Chronograph Watch, and after taking it out of the box I noticed the large second hand does not move. The watch seems to keep time, but the scond hand is frozen in...


The large second hand is actually the GMT hand for a second time zone. The second hand is the small sub dial at the 2 o'clock position. The large hand with the red arrow is the alarm time.

I have a Timex T42351 tachymeter chrono alarm wristwatch which needs the time adjusting. Unfortunately, only the hour hand moves (also altering the date). I need to adjust the minutes. How do i go about...


This watch has a cool feature that allows you to change only the hour if you are changing time zones. But if you want to change the minutes as well, then pull the crown out farther. You'll find that it has four positions: Normal, pulled out one notch, pulled out two notches, and pressed in to turn on the light.

Cool.

As long as we're at it, notice the crown in the four o'clock position also has three positions. In: set alarm. One notch out activates an alarm including the hour and minutes. Two notches out only activates the minute setting, so you don't have to move the hour hand all the way around.

Also cool.

Seiko chronograph alarm


Solution #3 (Posted by Guest on 5 Mar 08) is spot on. Quick and easy method to reset the chrono hands (it was not in my Seiko manual).
Interestingly, this can also be used to set the chrono ahead (or behind--with a little math) for offset timing measurements.

Analog will not sync with digital


I just bought a 4756. Hard to follow that manual.

In the end I used these parts of the manual
Step 1 was to set the correct time zone (off PT or pacific time to ET eastern Time.)
Step 2 was to do a manual receive of the radio time.
Step 3 was to Home all the analog hands so they all pointed to 12. see manual
Step 4 then I hit B button - top right by the 2 and everything spun around to the right time received from the manual received time.

Not again . . .


Pushing all the buttons at the same time you resets the digital functions. You'll have to reset the time and date, but it will all work again. I don't know why the watch freezes up, but pushing all the buttons at least resets it. I like my watch and this quirk is an annoyance, but it's livable after finding this solution.
