It is always best to turn the hands in their normal direction of rotation, to avoid the risk of damaging the mechanism if there is anything to stop the hands going backwards.

I need the manual of breil milano shosholoza.the model is bw0480


The crown has 3 positions.

Normal screwed down.
First pull out position.
Second pull out position.

Setting the Time:
Pull out the crown to position 3.
Rotate the crown to set the exact time.
Ensure that you are in the daytime12 hour segment by allowing the hands to pass 12 o'clock and notice if the date moved on or not.
If the date changed, then you will need to advance at least 2 hours before moving on to set the date.
If you do not need to change the date, return the crown to position 1.


Setting the Date:
DO NOT DO THIS IF THE WATCH IS BETWEEN 8pm & 2am
Pull crown to position 2.
Rotate the crown clockwise to set to the correct date.
Return the crown to position 1.


Setting the Alarm [12 hour]
Pull the crown to position 2.
Rotate the crown anti clockwise to move the alarm hand to the desired time.
Return the crown to position 1.
To activate the alarm, press the 8 o'clock button. You will hear 2 beeps.
To deactivate the alarm, press the 8 o'clock button. You will hear 1 beep.
NB If the alarm is not cancelled while it sounds the first time, it will repeat again in 2 minutes time. The alarm sound last for 15 seconds. If the alarm time coincides with 1 beep of the countdown, the alarm function will be cancelled.


Battery EOL [End Of Life]
The Swiss ISA 8270 movement uses a 395 cell and will signify a low power state by advancing the small seconds hand 4 steps every 4 seconds.


Setting the Countdown
You can specify a countdown of between 1 and 10 minutes.
Press the 4 o'clock button to enter setting mode. You will hear 1 beep.
Press the 4 o'clock button to move the central timing hand successively to the desired countdown time.
Wait 3 seconds for the watch to automatically exit the setting mode.
You can change the duration of the countdown [except in the last minute] at any time.
e.g. If the countdown is set to 10minutes, and you now want to change the countdown to 9 minutes, press the 4 o'clock button. The hours/seconds counter sub-dial will perform one complete turn and then stop at 60, before continuing.


Activating the Countdown:
Press the 2 o'clock button to start the countdown. You will hear 2 beeps.
The hours/seconds counter sub-dial will perform one complete turn and then stop at 60, before continuing.
When the countdown begins, the hour/seconds counter sub-dial indicates the seconds with 1 step every 2 seconds, and the central timing hand indicates the minutes with 1 step being 2.4 seconds.


Countdown tone:
There are 2 beeps every minute.
in the last minute:
50 seconds=1 beep.
40 seconds=1 beep.
30 seconds=2 beeps.
20 seconds=2 beeps.
10 seconds and less=1 beep every second with zero being 1 second long beep. Timer function automatically starts.


Timer:
After countdown has finished the timer starts automatically.
The central timing hand indicates the minutes with 1 step every 12 seconds. The hour/minutes counter sub-dial indicates the hours up to a maximum of 96.
Press the 4 o'clock button to see the timer seconds [display lasts up to a minute].
Press the 4 o'clock button to see the timer hours.
The timer has a maximum time of 96 hours [4 days] after which the hour/seconds sub-dial counter will stay at 0 and the central timing hand will stay at 12.


Start/Stop Timer:
Press the 2 o'clock button to stop the timer. You will hear 1 beep.
Press the 2 o'clock button to resume the timer. You will hear 2 beeps.


Setting the Countdown & Timer:
Countdown reset:
Press the 2 o'clock button to stop the countdown. You will hear 1 beep.
Press the 4 o'clock button to reset.


Setting the Timer:
Press the 2 o'clock button to stop the timer. The hour/seconds counter sub-dial will show the elapsed hours and the central timing hand the elapsed minutes.
Press the 4 o'clock button to view the seconds elapsed on the hour/seconds counter sub-dial.
Press the 4 o'clock button to reset.


Resetting the Hands:
If the hands do not zero correctly, which might occur after a battery change or a violent shock, you can make adjustments by doing the following settings as long as the countdown is not in operation.
To correct the hour/seconds counter sub-dial, pull the crown out to position 2 and wait 1 second.
Press either the 2 or 4 o'clock button; the central timing hand will turn and stop [not necessarily at 12].
Press the 2 o'clock button to increment the hours/seconds counter sub-dial hand to position it at 60.
To correct the central timing hand, press the 4 o'clock button to increment the hand to the 12 position.
Return the crown to position 1.



If the battery had been replaced, the central timing hand defaults to the 10 minute position. If the battery had not been replaced, the central timing hand will return to the previously set position.

How do i change date on longines oposition l3.618.4.52.6


Changing the date on the Oposition is done by pulling out the crown to the first stop (pulling out to the second stop sets the time). Turn the crown clock-wise/counter-clockwise to change the date.

How to set the date?


Pull the watchs winder to the first detent then turn either clockwise or counter clock wise. Then stop the day before the date you want it set, pull it all the way out to its last detent and manually turn the hands with the winder until it changes (around 3 or 4pm usually) so you know it's the AM and set your watch for the correct time.

Setting the correct time on Seth Thomas clock.


Correct technique definitely is CLOCKWISE ONLY. You are unbelievably lucky person if did not damage striking mechanism within 25 years while adjusting hands anti clockwise. If I'd have such a luck, I'd try to play lottery. :))

Bakelite antique mantle clock just bought, but no instructions of how to get it going. Ive got the key and pendulum but dont know how to set it up. Can you help?


First you have to wind up your clock using the key supplied. The pendulum suspension spring should start to swing quite fast. Stop it swinging with your fingers and hook up the pendulum. When done, push the pendulum to whatever side and release it to start the swing - the clock should start ticking in normal order. If there is no special bar on the back of clock movement for adjusting hands, then hands must be adjusted from the dial side by moving minute hand clockwise. Move the minute hand with your finger clockwise to the desired time, at the same time do not catch hour hand, as this may end up with the incorrect time displayed. Rate me, plz.

Does anyone know where to get a replacement 'movement' for the Michael Graves's Alessi mantle clock.


Yep - I know a clock repairman in California who still has some of the original Hechinger Quartz Movements for the Alessi pendulum clock . Definately worth repairing .

Help setting the time


Tags have a screw down crown (winder knob) turn the knob counter clock-wise until you feel the crown unscrew (not off) then pull the crown carfully. It will pop once this is for date adjust. Then pull once more and you can now adjust the hands, set accordingly then push crown back in. After you push it back in gently compress the crown and tighten clockwise until it stops. CAUTION!!!!!!! Tags are not waterproof if the crown is not screwed back down. I hope this helps I am actually a car guy (just happen to own a couple)
