Question about Watches

1 Answer

I have a Westclox, Calander Model 70026. I have set the clock several times to the correct time,(with the time zone at the proper setting) but, after a day or so, the hour reading, reverts back one hour, to a incorrect hour reading. This clock has done this every time over a period of 3 or 4 weeks. Again, I have checked to be sure that the zone setting is on eastern time, where I live. Whats the matter here????? Hopefully one of you 156 has a answer.

It's most likely because of Daylight Saving Time. Your clock receives a signal through the air once a day from the actual atomic clock, much like a cell phone receives the time from your cell phone service provider, and it automatically resets itself to the exact time each time it receives this signal. Remember that the middle of the year (the second Sunday in March until the first Sunday in November in the US) is Daylight Saving Time for much of the United States. The clock has an option that allows you to set whether you are observing Daylight Saving Time or not. If this is set to "off", the time will be one hour behind until Daylight Saving Time ends (November 7th). Make sure this is set properly, and your problem will be solved.

    You will see the letters DST underneath the time zone map as an indication if Daylight Saving mode is on.

Are Westclocks made in the usa?


Westclox clocks--and, at one time, watches--were once made in the United States. However, especially since the purchase of the Westclox brand and assets by a holding company in 2007, and the general disorganization that followed that acquisition, it's likely that all production has been moved offshore.

From about 1919 through the early 1980s, Westclox products were also made in Canada at their factory in Peterborough. Westclox also had a large factory in Scotland that manufactured over 50 million clocks between 1948 and 1988.

Clock is 2 hours ahead of actual cst time


If you have an atomic clock/watch that is not showing the right time, you could have one or two separate problems. First, the clock may not be set for the correct time zone. Second, the clock may have a manual switch to adjust the time for daylight savings time. Each of these problems can make your clock display the incorrect hour of the time, especially after you change the batteries and your clock "forgets" some or all of its prior settings.
Check the back of your clock to see if there is a button or switch to set the correct time zone. If your clock appears to be set to your time zone, change the switch to another time zone and see whether the clock moves forward/backward to adjust. Once it has finished adjusting to the new time zone, adjust the clock back to your time zone to see whether it will now correctly reset to display the time.
I have seen atomic clocks that have manual adjustments for these settings as well as ones that adjust automatically other than the time zone. If you provide the manufacturer and model number of your clock, we should be able to provide more detailed instructions.

The correct time zone setting for Arizona on this watch is YEA (Edmonton International Airport). Hold the adjust button for several seconds until the three code time zone starts flashing, then use the forward/back buttons to select YEA.You need to keep the DST mode off, so press mode once, then the forward button to select off in the DST select screen. From there, you can then press mode to manually adjust each time/date area individually. The final thing that you can adjust is the language, choose ENG for english. Press adjust to keep your settings, and you should be good to go.

Westclox model LTX271 instructions for setting day


mcdevito75 here, The stem on your westclox has 2 positions, First pull the stem out to set the time of day, keep cycleing the watch until you come to 1 day before the day you want. NOW! push the stem back in. NOW! slip a finger nail just under the crown and gently, gently kift the crown to it"s first position, it may take a little practice so be patient, once in it's first position you can change the DATE easily, change the DATE to 1 DATE before the DA you want, push the syem back in and pull the stem back out and set the day/date and time of day. Your watch is set and will change on time a little past mid nite.

This watch will set itself at specific time set times, this is likely to be at 0200 0400 and 0600.
You will however be required to set the time zone, the switch is likely to be on the back.

The "mode" button is there to change the function of the + & - buttons.

If you press the mode button several times you will cycle through the various setting features of the clock.

Look for the one that sets the time zone and use the + or - buttons to select your zone.

Some experimentation may be required!

This watch will set it's self in a 24 hour time frame. You need only set the time zone your in.

If it does not correct it's self change location in your house. It receives the signal at 0200 0400 and 0600 for the correction.

The transmitter is located in Fort Collins, Colorado. this station transmits the time codes2_bing.gif and is best received at night.
