I. TIME ZONE SELECTION
The default time zone is Eastern Time (EST, also GMT-5). There are 25 Time Zones

II. DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME (DST) AND 12- 24-HOUR TIME MODE
Through the WWVB signals, the watch automatically adjusts for Daylight
Saving Time. The default (factory) setting is Daylight Saving Time On and
12-hour Time mode. To change this mode:
1. Press and hold the TIME ZONE button for 4 seconds
2. “DST ON” and “12h” will be displayed in the time LCD.

4. The four selections are:

DST Off, 24-h
5. Wait 8 seconds for the automatic time-out to exit the DST On/Off,
12/24-hour time selection mode.
NOTE: At this point your watch will begin searching for the WWVB signal.

Problem: No WWVB signal (indicated by the absence of the WWVB tower icon).
Solution: 1) Check the selected Time Zone. If it is set between GMT+1 and GMT

programmed not to search when outside of the range of the WWVB signal.
Change the Time Zone to one of the time zone of the U.S and the watch
will again search for the WWVB signal overnight.
2) Move watch 10 feet (3 meters) away from any interfering sources, i.e.
electrical appliances (refrigerators, TV’s, computers), metal surfaces or
3) To help with overnight reception, place watch in a window with the
band inline with the general direction of Ft. Collins, Colorado.
4) There are a few places the signal is very weak (Los Angeles area, Some
parts of Florida and New York City). Since the watch has a much smaller
receiver than our other clocks, it is possible no reception can be made.
Please inform La Crosse Technology in this case.
Problem: The hour or minute is incorrect, even though the tower icon is on
(indicating a successful reception of the WWVB time signal the previous
night) and it is set to the proper time zone.
Solution: 1) Electrical interference caused the time signal to be improperly received.
Be sure the watch is at least ten feet from any source of electrical activity
(television, computer). Overnight it should correct itself.
2) You may need to perform a manual
