TCM Digital Watch

Hi there, I was given a black digital watch with the letters TCM on the back as a second hand gift. There is no model number other than 222908 written on the back. I don't have the instructions as they were lost. It's got a barometer, digital compass, stopwatch and 2 alarm function as well as a rotating bezel with compass points thereon. It has 4 buttons 2 on the left and 2 on the right side of the watch face. The lower button on the right is orange in colour. I am looking for instructions on how to set the digital compass as this would help in my daily work capacity. I know it's a long shot but any assistance would be greatly appreciated as I've had no joy on the internet.

Thanks, Bluenose2

    I have had the same problem. I was given a digital watch with TCM as the brand. Same buttons and controls as the previous watch owner. I can't find ANYTHING on the internet regarding a manual as to how to work this. As far as I have seen, it's made in Italy and evidently they don't use the web for much of anything. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Cmpass (COM)
The integrated compass tells you the direction (e.g.SSW for south­southwest) as well as the number of degrees. To determine a direc­tion,hold the watch horizontally with the 12 o'clock position poin­ting in thedirection you want to know.
General information about the compass
The compass always points to the magnetic north pole.Maps are always drawn in alignment with the geographic north pole (verticallyupwards at 90 ). The declination angle denotes the deviation between themagnetic north pole and the geographic north pole. This deviation depends onwhere you are located. To obtain exact results, the declination angle must beentered into the compass.Remember to change the angle when travelling abroad.Within the UKthere is no need to change the angle because deviati­ons are only slight.Overleaf you will find a table showing the declination angles for a number ofcities around the world.A fault has occurred if the display shows"ERR" while taking a direction or calibrating the compass. Thecompass must be re-calibrated (refer to section after next) .

    Calibrating the compass




    The compass must be calibrated before using it for the
    first time, after resetting it or changing the battery and whenever you travel
    abroad. The compass is a highly sensitive instrument. When
    taking a . bearing and calibrating the compass, keep away from magnetic and
    electrical fields. Fields of this type will corrupt the reading. The best
    results are generally obtained out of doors.



    1.
    Repeatedly press S3 until the display shows COMPo The watch changes to the
    compass function.



    2.
    Press S4 for approx. four seconds until the display shows CAL.


    3.
    Hold the watch
    horizontally and slowly rotate the watch twice about itself. Each rotation must
    take at least 15 seconds .



    4.
    Press 54.The first digit on the display will
    flash if calibration was successful. Continue at step 5. If the display shows
    ERR, a problem was encountered during calibration. Check your surroundings for
    potential sources of interference and, if necessary, move away from them.
    Repeat steps 2 to 4.



    5.
    Refer to the table
    to look up the declination angle for your location. Perform the following
    settings one after the other: First digit of the degree number - Second digit
    of the degree number - E!W (east or west)



    6.
    Press 51/52
    to set the first digit and confirm
    your entry by pressing 53. The
    second digit flashes.



    7.
    Press 51/52
    to set the second digit and confirm
    your entry by pressing 53. The
    direction E flashes.



    8.
    Press 51/52
    to set the direction E or W.


    9.
    Press 54 to quit the setting mode. The display briefly shows END CAL
    and then the current reading.



    Pressing any
    button during calibration will abort the function, and the compass will not
    indicate any clear direction.

SmokeyK asked about setting the temp to celsius. To do this go into barometer mode then the stop key alternates between the two temp scales. Hold the stop key for a few seconds to change it.

Here are instructions for finding out your geographic specific declination angle.

If you dont know your latitude and longitude, go to Google Earth to find out.

Then go to
http://www.ngdc.noaa.gov/geomagmodels/Declination.jsp
and input your your latitude and longitude.

This will give you the correct declination angle for your location.

How to submit questions about watches


To submit correct question about any watch here on FixYa you have to give as much details of particular watch as possible. There are hundreds of people asking for help, but it makes no sense if the question, for example, is: How can I adjust my Citizen stainless steel watch? Citizen, as any other watch manufacturer produces thousands of watch models and every year few hundreds of new models are added. This makes impossible to recognize any watch by the brand name given only.
So, to make sure that you will receive proper help with your watch, please always submit:
1. Brand name;
2. Model name;
3.Type of display ( Analog or digital or both);
4.Type of movement (Mechanical, quartz, kinetic, solar e.t.c.);
5.Number of the watch (Usually written on watch's case back);
6.All the writings you can find on watch's case back.
If you are not sure what type of movement your watch has, here is a tip how to find it out: Observe watch's seconds hand. If it is moving in jumping action second after second - your watch has a quartz movement which is battery driven. If the seconds hand is moving in sweeping action - most likely your watch has mechanical movement which is driven by spring.
The more information you will submit, the better.

Set time on MSP74810W


Instructions for setting an MSP74810W watch.

Press the "Mode." button three times (the "Mode" button is the one next to the lower left of the dial when facing it).The first time you press you'll see the ST, or stop watch function, the second time you'll see the AL, or alarm function, the third time you'll be back to the time of day function but the seconds will be flashing.

Change the flashing seconds digits to read 00 by pressing the "Start" button (the "Start" is the button next to the upper right of the dial when facing it).

-To advance from the flashing seconds' reading to the hour of the day's digit/digits you press the "Reset" button at the lower right of the dial,
-To advance from the flashing hour digit/digits to the minutes digit/digits you again press the "Reset" button,
-To advance from the flashing minutes digit/digits to the month's digit/digits you again press the "Reset" button,
-To advance from the flashing month's digit/digits
to the day of the month's digit/digits you press "Reset,"
To advance from the flashing day of the month's digit/digits to the day of the week's abbreviation you again press "Reset,"
-To advance from the flashing name of the week's abbreviation back to the seconds' of the minute you again press "Reset," and from there you can go through the cycle again.

While the hour of the day with its A[M] or P[M] designation, the minutes of the hour, the month of the year's number, the day of the month's number, or the abbreviation of the day of the week's name is flashing press the "Start" button once, repeatedly, or hold it down to advance the number or letters to their correct designations.

Once all designations are correct push "Mode" so that none of the numbers or letters are flashing. Your watch is now set.

I'm not 100% certain but I believe Role serial numbers are usually a mixture of letters and numbers. A couple of quick checks you can do are to open the back of the case and check the movement for a serial number and markings. Also another quick thing to note is the action of the second hand, does it "jump" or sweep round.

This is a tough question. Rolex has always been very secretive of manufacturing information so there is no definitive list of "born on dates" The serial number 2534788 is most likely from 1969 or 1970. The problem is that I know of no Rolex from that time period that has the small seconds hand. The off-set seconds hand was a feature of pre WW2 watches. The case number on the inside of the case back would help in identifying the movement and being able to provide more information

Stuck second hand


You need a new battery, as there is not enough power to move both gears. You can send it back to Wenger and get battery replaced or just pop into your nearest watch repair shop and get it replaced. It will cost you $5.oo and will be done in 10 minutes time instead of months of waiting it back from Wenger. Rate me, plz.

Analog clock not in sync with digital clock


This problem may be due to your analog hands being improperly zeroed. To find out, try this: 1. Put the watch in chronograph mode by rotating the crowon in its normal position to "chr" 2. Pull out the crown two clicks. This should cause all of the hands to point to zero. If you do this and your minute hand points to 1 o'clock, or five minutes, you will know that this is the problem. If this is the problem, you can can correct it by zeroing the hands as follows: 1. Put the watch in chronograph mode by rotating the crowon in its normal position to "chr" 2. Pull out the crown two clicks. This should cause all of the hands to point to zero, or close to it. You should also notice the letters "HR" in the lefthand digital display. This allows you to move the hour hand by rotating the crown. If the hour hand is not pointing at 12 o'clock, rotate it so that it does. 3. Push the top button once. The letters "MIN" should appear in the lefthand digital display. This allows you to move the minute hand on the large dial, and the minute and hour hands on the small UTC dial. Rotate the crown so that the minute hand points directly to 12 o'clock. 4. Push the top button again. The letters "SEC" should appear in the lefthand digital display. Rotate the crown to point the second hand directly at 12 o'clock. 5. Push the crown back into its normal position. Set the digiatl time and date in your tie zone, and your analog hands should match the digital read-out. If the zeroing of the hands is not the problem, I don't know what is wrong with the watch.
