    Hey, just played with mine, hope this helps:

    * Top left button cycles thru "once in a lifetime" time settings [yr, mo, day etc]. Click thru each one, watching what flashes.
    * Bottom left button cycles thru "everyday" settings, ex: alarms, +/- GMT timezone. Again, watch what flashes.
    * While something is flashing, based on what you chose on the left... The RIGHT buttons will go Up/Down in value. Top=increase, Bottom=decrease.

    Example: Crossing a timezone boundary? Press the bottom left button thru the alarm sets, till you get to a -5 (ET) / -6 (CT) / -7 (MT) / -8 (PT). If you just went EAST you need to press the bottom right button once [ex: MT to CT - go from -7 to -6] If you went WEST, press the top right button once [ex: ET to CT - go from -5 to -6]

    Land in Hong Kong? Probably change the number to 8 or so.

    Hour in main time display seems to immediately be incremented/decremented appropriately.

    Try this exxtra step (underlined: Press the bottom left button thru the alarm sets, till you get to a -5 (ET) / -6 (CT) / -7 (MT) / -8 (PT). Then, press the upper left MODE button once. Now the -5 will flash, allowing a change. If you just went EAST you need to press the bottom right button once [ex: MT to CT - go from -7 to -6] If you went WEST, press the top right button once [ex: ETt0CT-gofrom-5to-6]

    To Change Time Zone on a Silicon Scientific Atomic or Radio Controlled Watch:

    There are 4 buttons, 2 on left and 2 on right.

    1. Press bottom left 3 times which will display the hour offset digit.

    2. Press and hold top left until hour offset digit starts to flash.

    3. Press either top or bottom right to adjust offset hour to correspond with your time zone as follows: Eastern -5, Central -6, Mountain -7, Pacific -8. (These are negative numbers, not positive.)

    4. Then press top left button once.

    5. Then press bottom left button to return to time display.

How do I adjust the time zone on my E.Howard atomic watch? The T2 button doesn't activate anything when it's pushed?


No, just set properly. This watch is very difficult to set. A watchmaker may be able to help you. The instructions are not very clear. You might try a watchmaker for assistance or try calling them although I have not had much luck along those lines.

Silicon scientific atomic projection clock did no reset for daylight saving. Help


I have one of these, and look for the manual on the 'Net every time DST changes, and eventually figure it out. Here's how: (1) Hold down the ALM/SET button until you get past the alarm setting and you see 24H or 12H. (2) Step through the settings by pushing the ALM/SET button, changing each as desired by pressing the +/CYCLE button. Eventually you'll wind up with the time zone indication flashing (it's really tiny, and appears just below the time indication). Press the +/CYCLE until you get to the desired time zone. (3) After the screen quits flashing, press the -/DST button to get the desired setting. I hope this helps, and that I can find this post again next time change!

How do you set the time


This watch has the time set automatically by a radio signal. Leave the watch in a windowsill overnight whichever direction would face Denver Colorado. At 2am, and again at 3am, it will attempt to make radio contact and automatically set your watch! All you'll have to do is to set the correct time zone. Good luck, and let us know if this worked for you.

Cannot change from 24 hour to 12 hour also did not change to daylight savings time


To change from 24 hour to 12 hour, you hold down the "Mode" button until it switches from 24 hour to 12 hour or vice versa. To change the time zone, you hold down the "Set" button until the time zone that you set it in flashes (like "LAX" on my watch). Then you press the "Receive/Start/Stop" button to choose the specified time zone you want. To set for daylight savings time ("DST" on the watch), after holding the "Set" button and having the time zone flash, you could press the "Mode" button. It will give you a few options for the daylight savings time (Auto, On, or Off). I chose the "On" option, which immediately changed for daylight savings time. If you manually want to change the time, you could hold down the "Set" button and keep pressing the "Mode" button until the time starts flashing on your watch, then pressing the "Receive/Start/Stop" button until you change it to the time that you want. You could also set the watch to beep or chime after pressing the set button if you wanted to know that piece. You hold down the "Set" button when you are done to get it to stop flashing. These instructions worked for my Timex T5G341 Universal Radio Control Watch. I hope this helps.

Silicon radio control watch, what # is the eastern zone


It depends which way you are looking at- West or East.
5th time zone on West is for: Greenland, Canada, USA, Bahamas, Jamaica, Columbia, Peru.
On East: Russia, Kazakstan, Uzbekistan, Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, Maldives.
I just do not understand why you do need this. All radio controlled watches are receiving the signal from the place in country where watch is worn- in my case its Rugby in England.
Use your user manual to sort this out.

How do I set a LaCrosse WT-961 (B) watch?


This watch automatically sets itself. I you live in the eastern time zone, you just have to wait for the watch to receive the signal then it will set itself to the correct time & date. The signal is strongest at night between the hours of 10:00 pm & 2:00 am so it normally takes over night to set. Sometimes the weather interferes with the signal so I tell people to give them a couple of days to pick up. Also if you are having trouble receiving the signal try placing the watch by a window. If you do not live in the eastern time zone try these instructions:

Hold down the button for 2 seconds until the time zone abbreviation & zone flash the keep pressing the button until your correct time zone is displayed. Then wait about 8 seconds for the watch to return to normal display. Then you just have to wait until it picks up the signal & sets itself. I hope this helps.
