These basic instructions are for most digital watches (and these are for regular to military but you can just follow same instructions to get to oposite) Hope this helps!

  1. Press the "MODE" button---usually on the lower left side of the watch, but sometimes on the right center side---to cycle through to the time display.
  2. Press and hold the "SET" button---usually on the right lower side of the watch---until the seconds flash.
  3. Press "MODE" repeatedly to cycle through the displays that flash: from hours to minutes to month to date and day. At the end of the cycle is the hour display option. Make this option flash.
  4. Press the "SPLIT/RESET" button below the face of the watch to change the hour display option to "24-hour display." This is the same as military time. If there is a "NEXT" button on the upper-right side of the watch, use this to advance to the 24-hour option instead of using the "SPLIT/RESET" button. You may need to press a "START/SPLIT" button instead a "SPLIT/RESET" button to cycle between 12- and 24-hour display. The "START/SPLIT" button could be located below the watch face or on the upper-right side of the watch, depending on the model.
  5. Press the "SET" button again. You are now done. All PM hours should be displaying hours between 12 and 23.
jQuery('.article ol .image').each(function(i,e){ var $this = jQuery(this); $this.find('img').error(function(){ jQuery(this).remove(); $this.remove(); }); });

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/

Describe your Citizen Skyhawk Eco-Drive JR306059F Wrist Watch Problem: How to correct 0 position of 24 four hour hand. I think its done in conjunction with hour hand but how?


Here is how to correct the 0 Position for your watch.

While your the crown of your watch is down in the starting position , turn the crown until the mode hand (this is the circle at the bottom of the face) reaches CHR

At this time now pull out the crown until it clicks two times, two the second setting of the crown.

This will bring the watch to the 0 position correction function.
you can turn the crown clock wise to correct the hour hand.

press the a button to switch hand to second, or press again to switch to minute. Then use crown again to correct 0 position.

The hour and the 24 hour hand is in conjunction with each other.

then push down the crown all the way in and you should be all set.

How do you set the day of the week?


Since you didnt tell me what KIND of watch it is I am giving you a general instructions.

  • Wait until the second hand is at zero (the top of the dial). Then pull the crown knob out as far as it will go to set the time on your watch. Turn the knob in either direction and look at the three additional hands on the time dials of your watch: the minute hand, the hour hand and the 24-hour hand.
  • Step 2 Stop turning the knob when all minute and hour hands are pointing to the correct time. Pay special attention to the 24-hour hand so that you have a.m. or p.m. correct.
  • Step 3 Push the knob back in exactly when a new minute is starting so that your second hand will be correct. Use another clock you know to be accurate as a reference, such as the government clock available online.
  • Step 4 Pull the knob out halfway so you can set the date. Turn it counterclockwise until you notice the date on the watch changing. Stop it and push the knob back in to its starting position once you reach the correct one. Try to set the date before 9 p.m. If you set it after that time, it may not register with your watch that it should switch the date at midnight. If this happens with your watch, just fix it the next day.
  • Step 5 Set the chronograph, or big dial, on your watch. It works like a stopwatch to let you time activities for up to one hour. Push the top button on the side of your watch to start it. Push it again to stop it. Push the bottom button on the side of your watch to reset it.

  • It would certainly help if next time you let us know what kind of watch it is you have, Best of luck.

    How do i set the the 24 hour hand in a rolex 16758


    Yours is the original GMT Master. The GMT Master II allows the GMT hand and the regular hour hand to be set differently but not on your older model. On yours, the regular hour hand the the GMT hand are fixed so that if the triangle on the rotating bezel is at the top, the GMT hand will indicate local time. To indicate time in a 2nd timezone, rotate the bezel to orient the time to the GMT hand. There's a copy of the original instructions posted at: http://www.rolexforums.com/showthread.php?t=45269

    Activate the 24 hr clock function


    Press the mode button until you find the setting for 24 hour or 12 hour setting. (It is likely that the message will be abbreviated because of the limitations of the display, so some interpretation may be needed.).

    You change the setting by pressing one of the other buttons on your watch - some experimenting may be needed.

    Changing from 24 hr system to 12 hr system


    • Press "MODE" (lower left hand button) three times to get to the screen where the numbers are blinking, indicating that you can adjust the time
    • Make note of the hour if you don't have another clock handy
    • Press "LAP/RST" (lower right hand button) once to get the hour numbers to blink, indicating that you can change them
    • Press "ST/STP" (upper right hand button) to move the hour forward until you go past 24
    • At this point, you will notice a little "A" next to the time to indicate AM, and if you keep going past 12 hours, it will cycle back to 1, this time with a "P" next to it to indicate PM

    How to set time on a bulova marine star 96C30


    For some reason you cannot find the manuals on the Bulova web site any longer. But don't worry....
    I have the manual for the Bulova Marine Star 96C30 Watch. This is easily fixable.
    Below, I have typed the instruction on how to fix this issue as well as reset the time and calendar and a few extra tips in case you forgot....

    Here is what it says to do if the hands don't match up with the display time (usually happens after you change the battery).
    First, you must locate the buttons on the watch.
    The "A" button is at the 2 o'clock position (upper right). The "B" button is at the 10 o'clock position (upper left) The "C" button is at the 8 o'clock position (lower left) The "M" (mode) button is at the 4 o'clock position (lower right), and is the only button you can pull out to set the times, calendar and programming.
    To RESET the watch and do the ZERO POSITIONING after changing a battery or having a display error, do the following.
    RESET 1. Pull the "M" button out to the setting position. 2. hold down the "A", "B", and "C" buttons simultaneously for 3 seconds, then release them. All digit segments will turn on and display completely.
    ZERO POSITIONING 1. Press the "B" button and all the segments in the digital time will reset to zero, with "UTC" showing in the main digital window. 2. Zero the "UTC" minute and hour hand (located in 12 o'clock sub-dial) to the 24 o'clock maker (straight up). Button "A" will move the hands clockwise, and button "C" will move the hands counter clockwise. 3. Press button "B" - "HR" shows in the main digital window. Adjust the main (large) hour hand to the 12 o'clock (midnight) position using "A" and "C" buttons. At the same time, observe the synchronized 24 hour hand (small dial to the left of the main dial), to insure that it also moves to point to "24". 4. Press button "B". "MIN" shows in the display window. Adjust the large minute hand to also point to the 12 using the "A" and "C" buttons. 5. Push the "M" (mode) button back in to its normal position. The watch beeps and at the same time the hands jump slightly. ALL RESET and ZERO POSITIONING are now complete. 6. Reset the time, calendar and other modes.
    To set the time. Note that changing the time in any of the cities will automatically update the time for all the cities. 1. Press the "M" button to move the mode hand to (TME) 2. Press either the "A" or "C" button to move to the desired city. 3. Pull the "M" button out to the setting position. 4. Press the "A" button. SECONDS will blink. Set them with "C". 5. Press the "A" button again, and MINUTES will blink. Set them with the "C" button. 6. Press the "A" button again, and HOURS will blink. Set with the "C" button. 7. Press the "A" button again, and 12 or 24 hours tim format will appear. 8. Push in the "M" button to its normal position.
    To set the calender 1. push the "M" button to move the mode hand to (CAL) 2. Set the city using the "A" or "C" buttons. 3. Pull out the "M" button to the "setting" position. The numbers of the "month" starts to blink. this is an "american" date system with the month first, day second, and year third. Use "C" button to adjust the month. 4. Push the "A" button. The date (day) will flash. Adjust with the "C" button. 5. Push the "A" button. The YEAR flashes. Adjust with the "C" button. 6. Push the "M" button back in. The calender is simultaneously adjusted for all cities.
    Couple of other "tips".
    Switching the time on the digital display with the time shown on the hands: 1. Press the "M" button until the mode hand is in (TME) or (CAL) mode. 2. Pressing the "A" and "C" button together. The time will switch the between the main hands (analog) and the digital display.
    Temporary Hand Retraction Pressing and holding the "B" button will move the hands out of the way of the display. Repressing the "B" button will put the hands back at the correct time.
    hope this helps.

    1. Press the lower right button to move the mode indicator
    hand to CHR.
    2. Pull the lower right button out one click. The hour, minute
    and UTC hands will retract towards the straight up 12 O’clock
    position. You will see UTC on the top half of the digital display.
    3. Press the upper right button to advance the hands to the

    reverse.

    of the digital display. Press the upper right button to advance
    the minute hand clockwise or the lower left button to move

    6. Push the lower right button back in one click.
    The watch malfunctions in some way and the above
    procedures do not work.
    1. Press the lower right button until the mode indicator hand
    points to TME.

    3. Press the upper left button. You will see UTC on the top half
    of the digital display. Press the upper right button to advance
    the hands of the top dial to the straight up 24-hour position.
    Use the lower left button to go in reverse.
    4. Press the upper left button. You will see HR on the top half
    of the digital display. Press the upper right button to advance
    the hour and 24-hour hand clockwise until they both point
    straight up at the 24-hour position. Use the lower left button to
    move the hand anti-clockwise.
    5. Press the upper left button. You will see MIN on the top half
    of the digital display. Press the upper right button to advance
    the minute hand clockwise or the lower left button to move
    anti-clockwise until it is pointing straight up at the 12 O’clock
    position.
    6. Push the lower right button back in one click

    Hello I have the same watch and had the same problem. You press the mode button till you get to the point to change the main time, you then press the reset button (bottom button on right side of the watch)to toggle to the hour place, you then cycle thru the time untill the "h" in the top right hand corners disappears and then the watch will be back on regular time.
