Unable to zero hands and reset skyhawk eco drivewatch

Posted by on

  • Grantward Jun 06, 2008

    When zeroing, all hands are at the 1200 position, except the UTC hour hand, which is at 2100 position. I want to set it to the correct UTC time of 1600. What is the procedure?

  • lwnortur May 18, 2009

    Watch shows no power bars. I can only move the set, time, cal, etc dial on the bottom. no matter what I do the UTC and time LEDs just flash on-off.

    Any ideas?

1. set mode to CHR with the bezel fully in.
2. pull bezel out 2 notches. This will set all (or most) hands to 12.
3.press A (top button) repeatedly until you get MIN in the left window
4.turn the bezel to move the min hand forward.
4a. turn the bezel several clicks in quick sucession to get the minute hand to continue to move in the forward direction. This will "drag" the 24 hr UTC hour hand froward 1 hour per 1 revolution of the minute hand. if the minute hand stops before you want it to repeat step 4a. continue till the 24 hr UTC hour hand points to 24.
5. to stop the minute hand turn the bezel backwards 1 click. remember however to approach the 12 position with the minute hand in a clockwise direction.

    Bugger, I forgot to add the rest of the proceedure.

    6. Press the Bezel in two clicks.
    7. set mode to TME with the bezel.

    cheers, David.

I have the correct time set in the watch, the main analog clock shows the correct time, but the UTC analog hands19:00 when the UTC digital time is 12:00. How do I reset the UTC analog hour hands?


The hands are driven by the digital. It seems to me you have the wrong digital city. Please review the setting instructions for your Skyhawk at: http://www.citizenwatch.com/

BTW, I love my Titinimum Skyhawk

My Citizen Skyhawk analog UTC hour hand is alway 1 hour ahead of the UTC digital hour. I've tried reset and the hour/min hand alignment process without success. Any ideas other than sending in the watch...


You've gotta go to the set setting, one click out on the knob and cycle through all the timezones using the B button (the lower one) to change all the settings to OF (for winter) or ON (for summer time). According to their website FAQ, they can't determine when daylight savings time goes into effect for all the different time zones so there is no automatic changeover from SMT to normal and back again. Disappointing, I know. I just spent half an hour going through their website looking for some master switchover as well.

Utc Dial does not match Digital utc readout and I can't for the life of me figure out how to sync them


I finally figured this out... You must zero all the hands by setting the mode to CHR and pulling the stem to the second stop. Go through the process of setting the hour and second hand to zero. The secret is that zeroing the MINUTE hand also controls the UTC display zeroing. You will have to crank it until the UTC display reads 0:00 (24:00). Then go back and set the time and so on as usual.

The watch is dead i tried to charge it and it will not turn on ..how do you reset the citizen eco-drive skyhawk


DO NOT TRY TO CHANGE THE BATTERY! There is no battery! Eco drive watches have a capacitor that is charged by light! Put it in a sunny window for a day OR set it under a cool light. Check it often to see if it starts working, if after a few hours its still not running then take it to a local watch repair business. Its possible that the capacitor is bad. They are also very difficult to set so you will need your manual if you want to attempt it on your own!

You can find your model number on the case back! We use their site often at our watch repair business!

I can't get the clock hands to correspond with the digital time.


You must set the "Zero" position for your watch. Follow the instructions at this address and your problem should be corrected.

Citizen Skyhawk Time Adjustment Problem


It is possible to set the main analogue hour and minute hand 30 minutes out of phase with the digital readout, but doing so will also put the analogue UTC dial 30 minutes off. It can be done by using a variation of the proceedure for zeroing the watch hands as follows: 1. Rotate the crown in its normal opering position to set the watch in chronograph mode (mode dial pointing to "chr") 2. Pull out the crown to the second click. This should cause all the hands on the watch to return to zero. "HR" should appear on the left-hand digital display. This will allow you to move the hour hand by twisting the crown. Advance it to about half way between the 12 o'clock and 1 o'clock positions. 3. Press the top button. "MIN" should appear in the left-hand digital display. This allows you to adjust the minute hand. Twist the crown to advance it to the 6 o'clock, or 30 minute, position. Note that this will also move the minute hand on the small UTC dial to the 30 minute position. 4. Press the crown back into its normal position. 5. Reset the digital time and date according to a time zone that is in a one-hour offset from UTC. This is not a perfect solution. Your digital readings will show the correct time for all one-hour offset time zones while your analogue nads are 30 minutes out of phase. Your small UTC dial will also be 30 minutes out of phase with the digital UTC. Hope this helps.
