    There is no MODE button on this watch. It is a Seiko 7T62 chronograph watch.

    Mcdevito75 here, It may not be called MODE, as each watch is different, simply go thru your settings until you reach alarm or set a time on the alarm.

    mcdevito75 here, If it was working before the battery change, you"ll have to double check your battery installation, also check that all button contacts are being made from the button itself to the movement, use a Qtip to clean all contacts as oil from your fingers could make a bad contact. also, if there is a seperate battery for the alarm as some watches have you may also have to replace that battery. Last but not least, your NEW battery could be weak right out of the package, who knows how long it was in the store or warehouse. Sorry for your troubles but welcome to the world of watches. One more thing, the alarm sounds from a speaker like device just under the back cover, double check everything for proper placement and go slow, don"t loose patience, take a break and return to your watch. Hope all works out.

How to set Seiko alarm chronograph alarm?


Without the watch model it is hard to help you set the watch. Some Seiko watches use the watch stem which has two positions. Sometimes it is hard to identify the indentations so you may want to pull the stem all the way out then carefully push the stem to the first indentation. This will activate the alarm until it is pushed all the way in. When it is in the alarm on position, you can use the buttons to set the alarm time. However, I have 10 Seiko watches, and they are all unique to their functions, so it is best that you go to the link below and put the caliber code from the case back and look at the instructions.
