    I've finally dug mine out of the cave-like hovel called my room. So, I was looking at other places online, and I found several models with the label of "WR165"; So, what's the deal? Just to keep things as clear as they've been so far, mine is digital, has a timer/stopwatch function, says "WATER RESIST" on each side of the strap from the display, and the buttons (going from what would be 12 o'clock, clockwise) are:"ST/STP" - "LIGHT" - "MODE" - "ADJ." And, oh, yeah, I need the time set on mine, too.

When you're in the regular time mode press "set". The secons should blink. Pressing "mode" brings you to the hour spot (hour should blink). Press "adj" to change the hour. To set the min., press "mode" again and the min. spot should blink press "adj" to change. Keep pressing "mode" then "adj" until all necessary time components are set correctly. Press "set" to get to regular time mode.

The watch is stuck on military time, and it's really annoying. I lost the instructions years ago, and have no idea how to change it. It is an Armitron WR165 All-Sport watch, and the number on the bottom...

go to and you will see a list of illustrations of various watches. Find the one that looks like yours and download the pdf file.

(If there isn't an exact match, choose the nearest- there can only be a limited number of alternative ways of using four buttons!)

How do you set time on the Armitron Women's Sport Large Digital Pink Resin Strap Watch #456963PNK+

Here is what I found....

Hi, I have a 40/6753 and here is what I found to set the watch

Press and Hold down the MODE button until the display starts to flash that you are Adjusting the alarm. If you need to adjust the alarm here ya go :)
Press the mode button again and it switches from adjusting the ALARM to adjusting the TIME.
At this point the display will be flashing the seconds. Press the ADJ button and it will switch to Adjusting the Minutes. Press the AdJ button to advance the minutes.
Pressing the Start/Stop will switch to Adjusting the Hour. Again pressing the ADJ button will advance the Hour until you get to the correct one.
Once correct press the Start/Stop to switch to Adjusting the DATE. Press the ADJ to advance Month and Day.
Pressing the Start/Stop will finally switch to Adjusting the DAY OF THE WEEK. (little circle to the left hand side). Again, pressing the ADJ will advance the Day until correct.
This took me an hour just pressing buttons until I could figure this out. I hope this helps everyone.

1.To set the time hold the mode button until the alarm flashes, then hit it one more time and the time will flash to be changed. Once the alram or time is flashing use the ST/STP button to navigate between hour, minute, month, day and day of the week, the ADJ button changes the numbers.
2.While holding down the ADJ button use the ST/STP button to turn off the hourly CHIME and the ALARM chime.
Hope this helps!! K~~
