Hi, Klik and Crane & Viceroy are excellent and robust watches, but due to the radio control batteries need to be changed more often than ordinary watches. Instructions for resetting the time on a Klik or Crane & Viceroy watch. With the watch face upwards and the buttons on the right assume the buttons to be; top button - "A", middle button "B" For setting the watch to GMT all hands need to point to 12 oclock exactly. To achieve this press Button A until the hands start spinning. Stop the spinning when the time reaches a couple of minutes before 12 oclock by repressing A. Inch the time forward by repressing Button A until all hands are at 12 oclock.(EXACTLY). Press Button B within 10 seconds and the time will advance 1 hour and stop. The radio signal will be picked up automatically and time will set itself in a few minutes. Notes: If you have radio dead spots avoid these when resetting the watch and do it away from magnetic or large metal objects. i.e. trays etc. If you are refitting a new battery and have a battery that isn't quite dead, do the advancement of time with the old battery and fit the new one near to 12 oclock to get the best life out of the new battery. If for any reason you want the watch to be in radio mode but read a time other than GMT ( no adjustment is needed for BST ), then instead of stopping the watch at 12 oclock stop it at the time in relation to 12 oclock. i.e. if you wanted the watch to read 30 minutes fast then stop the watch at 12.30. if you want any other info my email is; Charles@adept.fsbusiness.co.uk

Require instructions on how to reset my Crane & Viceroy radio controlled watch details as PH16251 & cvw0002


Hi, to reset, remove battery, short out the -ve battery spring terminal to the ATM movement, this is the part of the watch in the centre of the lower part of battery holder, it has a small access hole through some clear insulator material. You need to pull up the battery spring a bit to see this. use tweezers to short it out. This discharges the watch circuit and resets it.

hope that helps and thanks for using fixya!

Setting analogue time on a Crane & Viceroy Radio controlled watch


I haven't been able to locate your watch but since watches tend to be similar in operation, I suggest that you look at the instructions for my watch and try a similar settings.

Go to "http://ftp.casio.co.jp/pub/world_manual/wat/en/qw2735.pdf" and instructions for a Casio watch will appear. Go to page 4 and read instructions under "to adjust analogue time".

Having fitted a new battery I need to re-set a Crane & Viceroy atomic watch but cannot find the re-set button.


The reset is typically not a button. If you look at the back lid with the watch open you might have instructions to reset or "AC" the watch. Usually this involves using tweezers or lever to contact the battery and circuit board to clear it. My suggestion for this procedure is to see a watch maker/technician since the circuit board is easily damaged.

Viceroy sapphire ladies watch instructions


Looking at this watch I believe the lower right button changes the watch between chrono & time. Push that button until the hand in the bottom dial is on time. Then see if the bottom right button pulls out. If it does then this will put the watch in time setting mode. Now push the top right button. This should move the hands around so you can set the time. I hope this works I'm trying to go by what the watch looks like.
