When cycling through the moves, it passes from Golf to alarm 2. We can not seem to access alarm one, which is set and we would like to turn it off.

    I know that is how to turn the alarm off when it is in alarm mode. This watch has three alarm modes and it will not enter the alarm mode #1 which is set.

    I can not find the AC pad. The little arrow did not seem to point to anything like it, and I tired shorting everything around the watch that looked like it could be.
    The interior of the watch is not the same as the diagram, although it seems to have the same parts in different places.

    I've tried several ways to get a good picture of the watch. I have been unable to fine the CA pad. I may have accidentally changed the arrow 180 degrees, but I can find it on neither side. Here is a picture:

    The next best thing to do is to reset the watch so that it will return back to it's factory settings. The memory of the watch will be cleared as well.

    Here's how to reset a Timex Ironman watch:


    • Open the back cover. There are four screws at the back of the watch.

    • Test the tightness of the screws on the back of the watch by slowly
      loosening one. Remember how tight they were so you can re-tighten them
      in the same way.

    • Remove all the screws.

    • Remove the back of the watch. You may need to gently insert a fingernail
      or the end of your screwdriver between the watch and the back plate to
      loosen it
      . You will see a clear sticker on the battery with an arrow
      pointing to the AC (meaning All-Clear) pad
      --a metal plate near the
      battery.Touch the AC pad and the battery at the same time with a pair of metal
      tweezers or paper clip.





    The watch may display random numbers for a few
    minutes, but soon will reset to 12:00.Return back the back cover onto the watch.

    • Insert the four screws and tighten.


    Take extreme care when completing this procedure; doing it incorrectly could damage the watch.

    I hope this helps.
    Keep me posted.

My watch is 3 hours and 5 minutes off its a shp8948


1. Since all of the settings seem to go through the start/stop button, hold it down for three seconds to put it in "set the watch mode" (when the seconds at the bottom start blinking).
2. Do a quick press of the start/stop button to move from seconds to minutes to hours to years to months to days. The mode button subtracts & the reset button adds.
3. Setting alarms & so on require putting it alarm mode via the mode button. Use the reset button to move to the selected alarm (1-5). 
4. Hold the start/stop button for three seconds to "set the alarm mode."
5. Quickly press the start/stop button to between things to set (kind of alarm, hours, minutes).
6. Again, the mode button subtracts & the reset button adds.
7. A three-second press of the start/stop button exits the setup mode.

Set reserve indicator on invicta 6106


Here is how to set the Invicta 6106 Invicta 6107 and other similar models with the ISASWISS 8173 movement with the following functions:
TIME - DATE - DAY - ALARM - GMT - POWER RESERVE

DO THINGS IN THIS ORDER AND YOU WILL FIND IT TO BE VERY EASY! After you understand how to set ALL the functions you can skip steps later to set individual functions but for now just do it exactly step by step:
1. Unscrew the center crown (if it is a screw down crown) and pull it all the way out (this is position 2) and turn it until you see the DAY sub-dial at the 6:00 position set to the day BEFORE today. There is no QUICK SET for the day on this movement so you must just keep turning the crown and hour hand past 12 midnight and watch the day pointer until it gets to the day you want - the day BEFORE today.
2. Now set the time to 6:00 (am or pm doesn't matter at this point). This is very important because you do not want the time to be between 9:00pm and 12:00pm when you set the date later on - we are using 6:00 just to be safe.
3. Push the crown all the way in - you don't have to screw it down.
4. Now pull out the crown very gently to the 1st position - just one "click" out. Now turn the crown AWAY from you to set the date to the date BEFORE today - this appears in the small window at the 4:00 position.
5. Now pull the crown all the way out again to position 2 and turn it away from you until it goes past 12 midnight and TODAY's DAY AND DATE are showing and then adjust the hour and minute hands to the current time - be sure to set the hour to AM or PM and push the crown all the way in. If you wish to set the seconds exactly - with the crown pushed in watch until the small seconds hand in the sub-dial at 2:00 is exactly at 60 and then pull the crown out to Position 2. Set the time ahead a minute or so and push the crown in when the actual time is the time you have set - you can set it to atomic clock time on the internet or by another watch that sets itself to atomic time.
6. Now the DAY, DATE and TIME are set to current. Now when the hour hand passes 12 at midnight tonight the DAY and DATE will advance correctly.

YOU CAN STOP HERE IF YOU WISH - but you can continue on to set the ALARM and the GMT indicators as follows:

7. To set the GMT hand (the one with the red-bordered pointer) the crown is pushed all the way in and screwed down. Now simply hold the bottom pusher in for a few seconds until you hear a beep - now you can start pushing it and watch the GMT hand moving - one push at a time for small adjustment or hold it down to make it move faster. When you stop pushing it another beep indicates that it is OUT of the setting mode - so if you want to adjust it again just hold it in until short beep and start pushing the lower pusher same as above.

Understanding GMT (or second time zone): Note that the GMT hand time is indicated on the 24 hour dial (think in military time where 3:00AM is 0300 and 3:00PM is 1500) using the very small numbers around the very outside of the dial. When the local time is 3:00PM if GMT is adjusted for the SAME TIME ZONE as you are in now the GMT HAND will be pointing at the small "15" which is between the 7:00 and 8:00 hour markers. If the local time is 3:00AM and the GMT is adjusted for the SAME TIME ZONE as you are in now the GMT HAND will be pointing at the small "3" between the 1:00 and 2:00 hour markers. So lets say you are in Pacific Time Zone and it is now 3:00pm local time and showing on the minute and hour hands - and for example you want the GMT hand to show Eastern (New York) time which is 6:00pm (in military time that is 1800 indicated by the very small 18 which aligns with 9:00) - hold in the bottom pusher until you hear a beep - now start pushing it in short increments or hold it down to move it faster until it points to small 18 (large 9). Now the GMT will indicate the hour in the EASTERN time zone while the main hour hand indicates your local time.
7. To set the ALARM - unscrew the crown and pull it to Position 1. Turn it TOWARDS you (if you turn it way from you will set the date which you don't want to do) and you will see the hand with the white pointer and the word "Alarm" in tiny writing on it move clockwise. Set the ALARM to the time you want. Push in the crown and screw it down.
8. To activate the ALARM push the TOP PUSHER once - the small hand in the POWER RESERVE sub-dial will move slightly and then it will move again (give it a second or so) and you will hear a BEEP - now the alarm is activated and the small hand points to the "ON" label. When the alarm sounds if you wish to stop it push the top pusher. But it will stop on its own and then repeat a few minutes later - you can just leave it alone if you wish. Note that the Alarm will turn OFF after sounding - so if you want to wake up for work on time tomorrow be sure the ALARM indicator is pointing to "ON".
9. To deactivate the ALARM when the small hand is pointing towards the "ON" label simply push the top pusher again and and the small hand will move clockwise down to the "OFF" label.
10. POWER RESERVE sub-dial. To align the Power Reserve sub-dial hand (after battery change) pull the crown out to Position 1 and push the top pusher until the hand points to 0%. Push the crown back in and screw it down.
11. Reserve Indicator - the instructions for this movement states that holding down the top pusher for 3 seconds will move the POWER RESERVE hand to the power reserve scale - but this is confusing because the hand never actually stays on the power reserve scale - it will only stay on "ON" or on "OFF".
However - I believe that this is the way it works. When you push the top pusher with the small hand in the "OFF" position it will momentarily move to the power reserve scale and stop for a second before it moves again to "ON" - I believe that this reading indicates the POWER RESERVE just before it moves again to the "ON" position..

I have a Casio 50M. I can't stop the alarm function. It seems to beep when it wants to. This watch has the REM feature. Help !!!


Hi trapmanjohn,

Man what an aggravating problem! Try this procedure.

1. To turn the daily alarm and time signal on and off:

2. In the Alarm mode, press "B" , upper right button, to cycle throught the on and off settings as follows:

Alarm on Indicator/Hourly Time Signal On Indicator
a. }}}} with Bell = Both alarms on
b. Display Blank = Both alarms OFF
c. }}}} = Daily alarm on only
d. Bell = Hourly time signal on only

The Alarm ( }}}} ) indicator flashes while the alarm is sounding.

The Alarm ( }}}} ) indicator and hourly time signal on BELL indicator are displayed in all modes.

To Test The Alarm: In Alarm Mode, hold down the "B" to sound the alarm.

Your Module number is #3171. Down an Operation Guide for the 3171 from here for more clarity:

This should help you with nuisance...Good luck.

Help needd to find out how ro set Alarm on my Bulova Millennia 98A48. A users guide would be appreciated. I have lost mine.


Pull out the winding stem (crown) when second hand reaches 12 o'clock, set main time by ajusting stem, next press and hold A button "near 9 o'clock" hands will move quickly, when close to matching main time, release A button and press in and out quickly until it matches main time. Next push winding stem in, this will start the main and the sub-hands together for normal time. To set alarm press and hold A button until set time is reached, select B button alarm mode "2 o'clock" for beep or vibra, to turn alarm on/off press C button "4 o'clock" for 1 or 2 seconds, the sub hands will move rapidly until it reaches normal time and alarm will sound 3 times indicating it is set, finally when alarm goes off early in the morning for example you can press any button to stop. To reset alarm press C and it will go back to the original alarm setting.

I have a spare set of instructions if required.

I don't know how to enable the Golf Scoring Mode.


This is out of memory so bare with me. Push and hold the "set" button as if you were going to set the time. Now continue to push the "mode" button that moves from hours, minutes, date, beep setting, alarm setting, etc. Eventually you will come to the Golf setting which will ask whether or not you want to display it. Select yes, push the "set" button again, scroll through, and voila.

I just bought a Mondaine travel alarm pocket watch. Instructions say the crown has 3 positions. 1> Home normal for a quartz watch. 2> Pull out 1/2 way to set alarm. 3> Pull out all way to set time. My...


It seems like your watch has a little short stem and that's why it has only 2 positions. This does not affect battery in any way, nor the timekeeping.
The only downside of this is that you can accidentaly reset alarm time without knowing it as your watch crown is in permanent 1/2 way position.
If you are happy with that - keep your watch.

My watch has 4 buttons (2 on the left, 2 on the right) plus the "Indiglo" button. Use the "Mode" button (lower left) to move between the time and the stopwatch. When seeing the stopwatch, hold the "Mode" button. This will get you to the alarm setting mode. Press the "Mode" button again to switch to the time setting mode. Use the "Start/Stop" button (upper right) to move from seconds > minutes > hour > date > day of week. Use the "Spl/Reset" button (lower right) to change the numbers.
