If its digital that makes it more difficult to give setting directions online. Need to know the exact model #. I would do a google search to try and find your watch and you might find a manual online. OR you could seek out a local watch repair business and they should be able to set it with no problems. Most Sears have a watch repair kiosk in their stores! I woudlnt take it back to Walmart because they are just sales people! They have limited watch knowledge!

SOURCE: I have a Ricoh watch that has
Ricoh Elemx AT Corp. is subsidiary company of Ricoh Elemex Corp.
The Hamilton Ricoh Watch Company, Ltd. was a joint venture (60% owned by Hamilton) and only existed between 1962 and 1964. Electric parts were made in Lancaster, PA while the mechanicals parts were made in Japan, the watches also being assembled in Japan. The movements are marked "Ricoh 555E", but are the same as the Standard Time Corp. 130E (fitted in Hamilton's Vantage range), which in turn is very similar to the Hamilton 505.
Although the factory was turning out 1000 / month, very few were sold. Marketing was handled by Ricoh but they failed to break the stranglehold and monopoly that Seiko had in the Japanese stores; in the end, most were sold on US military bases in Japan.
The partnership was dissolved in 1965; some of the Hamilton Ricoh movements were re-cased as Vantage and sold in the US.
Now Ricoh is owned by Elemex and they still producing watches. Follow this link and see for yourself:
Unfortunately, I cant give you any details about your watch, except that the 10BAR means your watch can withstand 10BAR pressure, and that is 10 meters under water.
The bar (symbol bar) is a unit of pressure equal to 100 kilopascals, and roughly equal to the atmospheric pressure on Earth at sea level.
Rate me, please.
