    I have Vestal Crusader. I can't set the time. I understand to hold down the light button for three seconds, but then I still can't figure out the way to go from hours to minutes. I must be stupid! Any help is appreciated.

Not sure if you found your answer or not but I managed to locate the manual on the Columbia website. Here it is in case you haven't found yours yet:

I found the manual. If you want to reset the time: Hold el/set (light) for 2 seconds to enter real time setting mode. Press mode key to change to next setting item. Press st/sp or reset keys to increase or decrease the setting value. If el/set is pressed, it exits to real time display mode. Hope this helps. It will make sense once you enter the mode.

Can't seem to get AM & PM set properly

Had Pulsar analog watch. Couldn't set either day or date properly due to being unable to signify AM or PM. When days changed one or the other would be 12 hours off.
""googled" adjusting Pulsar watches" and found site which explained how. You set day of week and date to previous day and date and then move watch time ahead until day and date are correct. Then set watch time. Seems to work.

1. Hold down (light/el/set--the top right button) for 2 seconds to enter real time setting mode. 2. Press Mode key (bottom left button) to skip around to the different setting items. 3. Press Reset (top left button) to lower a setting. 4. Press ST/SP (bottom right button) to advance a setting (like increasing the time). 5. The day of the week will show automatically if you were correct in setting the year, month, date, and local city.
