It sounds like DST setting that needs to be cancelled.

If you do not have any instructions you should go to "www.pulsarwatches-europe.com", select "instructions" and enter the watch number in the "instruction finder" box and download instructions.

The crown has 3 positions.

Normal screwed down.
First pull out position.
Second pull out position.

Setting the Time:
Pull out the crown to position 3.
Rotate the crown to set the exact time.
Ensure that you are in the daytime12 hour segment by allowing the hands to pass 12 o'clock and notice if the date moved on or not.
If the date changed, then you will need to advance at least 2 hours before moving on to set the date.
If you do not need to change the date, return the crown to position 1.


Setting the Date:
DO NOT DO THIS IF THE WATCH IS BETWEEN 8pm & 2am
Pull crown to position 2.
Rotate the crown clockwise to set to the correct date.
Return the crown to position 1.


Setting the Alarm [12 hour]
Pull the crown to position 2.
Rotate the crown anti clockwise to move the alarm hand to the desired time.
Return the crown to position 1.
To activate the alarm, press the 8 o'clock button. You will hear 2 beeps.
To deactivate the alarm, press the 8 o'clock button. You will hear 1 beep.
NB If the alarm is not cancelled while it sounds the first time, it will repeat again in 2 minutes time. The alarm sound last for 15 seconds. If the alarm time coincides with 1 beep of the countdown, the alarm function will be cancelled.

Press the 4 o'clock button to enter setting mode. You will hear 1 beep.
Press the 4 o'clock button to move the central timing hand successively to the desired countdown time.
Wait 3 seconds for the watch to automatically exit the setting mode.
You can change the duration of the countdown [except in the last minute] at any time.
e.g. If the countdown is set to 10minutes, and you now want to change the countdown to 9 minutes, press the 4 o'clock button. The hours/seconds counter sub-dial will perform one complete turn and then stop at 60, before continuing.


Activating the Countdown:
Press the 2 o'clock button to start the countdown. You will hear 2 beeps.
The hours/seconds counter sub-dial will perform one complete turn and then stop at 60, before continuing.
When the countdown begins, the hour/seconds counter sub-dial indicates the seconds with 1 step every 2 seconds, and the central timing hand indicates the minutes with 1 step being 2.4 seconds.


Countdown tone:
There are 2 beeps every minute.
in the last minute:
50 seconds=1 beep.
40 seconds=1 beep.
30 seconds=2 beeps.
20 seconds=2 beeps.
10 seconds and less=1 beep every second with zero being 1 second long beep. Timer function automatically starts.


Timer:
After countdown has finished the timer starts automatically.
The central timing hand indicates the minutes with 1 step every 12 seconds. The hour/minutes counter sub-dial indicates the hours up to a maximum of 96.
Press the 4 o'clock button to see the timer seconds [display lasts up to a minute].
Press the 4 o'clock button to see the timer hours.
The timer has a maximum time of 96 hours [4 days] after which the hour/seconds sub-dial counter will stay at 0 and the central timing hand will stay at 12.


Start/Stop Timer:
Press the 2 o'clock button to stop the timer. You will hear 1 beep.
Press the 2 o'clock button to resume the timer. You will hear 2 beeps.


Setting the Countdown & Timer:
Countdown reset:
Press the 2 o'clock button to stop the countdown. You will hear 1 beep.
Press the 4 o'clock button to reset.


Setting the Timer:
Press the 2 o'clock button to stop the timer. The hour/seconds counter sub-dial will show the elapsed hours and the central timing hand the elapsed minutes.
Press the 4 o'clock button to view the seconds elapsed on the hour/seconds counter sub-dial.
Press the 4 o'clock button to reset.


Resetting the Hands:
If the hands do not zero correctly, which might occur after a battery change or a violent shock, you can make adjustments by doing the following settings as long as the countdown is not in operation.
To correct the hour/seconds counter sub-dial, pull the crown out to position 2 and wait 1 second.
Press either the 2 or 4 o'clock button; the central timing hand will turn and stop [not necessarily at 12].
Press the 2 o'clock button to increment the hours/seconds counter sub-dial hand to position it at 60.
To correct the central timing hand, press the 4 o'clock button to increment the hand to the 12 position.
Return the crown to position 1.



If the battery had been replaced, the central timing hand defaults to the 10 minute position. If the battery had not been replaced, the central timing hand will return to the previously set position.

I have an aquatech watch and don't know how to set it.


Thank you for contactng FixYa.
Setting the Time and Date
  • To set the time and date on your Aquatech watch, begin by pressing the "Mode" button three times to access the time setting screen. Use the "Lap/Reset" button to set the hour on your watch. Use the "Start/Stop" button to advance the numbers to reach the correct hour. When you've set the hour, use the "Lap/Reset" button to set the minutes, using the "Start/Stop" button to advance to the correct minute. Repeat the procedure to set the seconds, month, date and day of the week on your Aquatech watch.
  • Setting an Alarm
  • To set an alarm on your Aquatech watch, begin by pressing the "Mode" button two times to access the alarm setting screen. Use the "Lap/Reset" button to set the hours place, using the "Start/Stop" button to reach the correct hour. Repeat the same procedure to set the minutes for your alarm. When you have finished setting the alarm, activate it by simultaneously holding the "Lap/Reset" and "Start/Stop" buttons until the alarm icon appears. When the alarm sounds, silence it by pressing the "Lap/Reset" button.
  • Deactivating the Hourly Chime
  • Many Aquatech watch models feature an automatic hourly chime. This can be inappropriate and inconvenient in many situations. To deactivate the hourly chime on an Aquatech watch, simply press and hold the "Lap/Reset" and "Mode" buttons simultaneously. After you have correctly deactivated the hourly chime, the hourly chime indicator icon will disappear from the watch's main screen.

    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.

    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.

    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.
