Convert Military Time Setting to Standard

I accidentally set my ancient Seiko digital watch w/4 mode buttons to military time & can't figure out how to set it back. The number on the back is 4714-5009.

    I have the timex WR50M watch (the cheap one) and I accedently (without knowing how) set it to the military time setting. I have no clue how to get it back. I've searched for the instructions but can find them no where. I don't think it is the prizefighter, but I think any instructions should work. If anyone knows how to help please post it. Thanks I tried holding practically every button and 2 at once, but nothing is working

Light button is A
Mode button is B
Start button is C
Reset button is D

Standard Time Adjustment:
1) To set time, date, etc. press button B three times (assuming you start in standard time display mode)
2) Press button D until the area you'd like to change is flashing. (i.e.: minutes, date, day, etc.)
3) Press button C to change. Press once for one unit increment of change. Hold for 3 seconds for speedy advance.
4) Press D again until the next area you'd like to change is flashing.
5) At completion of changes press Button B to resume standard time display mode.

Possibly, you could push the hour-setting button through either the military or standard time setting, i.e., there are actually 48 "hours" you can set your watch to and you need to cycle through enough of them to reach the standard or military hour you want.

If your set up is: Top-Left=Indiglo Top-Right=St./Stop Bottom-Left=Mode Bottom-Right=Lap/Reset

Than follow these steps:
1. Press Lap/Reset and hold. You should see the time the alarm was set for.
2. While holding Lap/Reset, press Mode.
3. Let go of all buttons.
4. There you go!

Hope that was a help

Setting time on Seiko watch 7N43


Mike 1935 if your watch has hands only & no digital display the crown where you set the watch pulls out half a click to set the date and should pull out a little further to set the time try that.

bjbc I am assuming your seiko watch is a digital watch. Try holding in the top rt button if its the watch I think it is it should change to 12yr time.

I have a G Shock DW-004 made in 1997. I had this same problem, and I tried everything to change TO military time and back to standard time. I just read the bit to try and was about to do it. I pressed the top left button to get the time to flash, and hit the light button by accident (the one with the big G on it) and VIOLA! It changed to military time. So in my model, anyway, the G light button (under the display on the edge of the watch body) changed the time to military from standard and back again, when the time is flashing.

Good luck!
