If you can't set the alarm function follwing the instructions of a new watch, might mean that this watch is defective and should be covered by warranty. If you mess with it, you'll lose the right to claim warranty service, so should return it to the shop where you bought it or take it to authorized servce according to warranty terms.
Hey Malcolm, just bought this watch so I hope it is the same. Press the MODE button (bottom left) until you get AL. Then press the STAR/LAP (top left) this gives you the options of turning it off : ON with Alarm or ON with Alarm and CHM (I think this is the hourly chim) or OFF. (Located above the Quicksilver brand mark) Hope this helps! Carla
From the normal time position, press Mode and the AL function will come up which is where you set the alarm. Instead of pressing SET, press the up arrow. Each time you press the up arrow it changes function. When the alarm function is on a little bell appears above the colon in the time. The snooze has a ZZ that appears below the colon.The unique feature of this clock, is that it is the only one I have seen where the alarm works in the time zone selected. Most others, the alarm only works the home time zone, not the selected time zone. This is a huge improvement.
Twist the crown until you can pull it back one notch. This will set the alarm by twisting in one direction. If you twist it in the other direction, you will set the date. Pull back one more notch and this will set the time. One you've done this, push and tighten the crown back in and press the bottom right hand button. The second hand should begin moving.
the middle dial on the right side of the watch is used to switch from watch settings to alarm settings..
pull the middle dial out to put it in alarm mode.
To set alarm:
-pull the center knob out.
-with it out you can now use the bottom (right) knob to set the alarm.
-pull the bottom right knob out one notch
-turn the knob clockwise or counter clockwise to set the alarm time
-push the knob back in (all the way)
the alarm is now set
if the center (right) knob is pulled out the alarm is ON
if the center (right) knob is pushed in the alarm is OFF
I have owned this watch for about 10 years now and love it.
the past few years the chronograph buttons (on the left side of the
watch) were not working well rendering the chronograph and count down
timer functions unusable.
repairing a chronographs is expensive and watch makers usually charge
several hundred dollars which is not a feasible fee for a watch of this
value so i decided to open it up my self and clean it up and that did
the trick.. its working like new!
what you have to do is
1. press the mode button until you get to the setting that has "AL" at the bottom right.
2. then you press the "receive" button to switch between the four alarms.
3. as you are going through each alarm time, you need to look in the circle at the top right. When you are going through the alarm times, if there is a mark next to "ALM", you need to press the "time memo" button so that the mark next to "ALM" is no longer there.
4. repeat step fout for all of the alarms, and the problem should be fixed.
