Citizen Skyhawk Time Adjustment Problem

I just ordered this watch from Amazon and I found out that you cannot adjust for time zones which are in increments of 30 minutes and since I lived in India - I am in the +5.5 hr time-zone. and hence I was wondering whether I have to live with looking at my watch and always having to add 30 minutes to the time ! Does anyone know of a way to set the watch up to show the correct time in India (GMT +5.5)? It would be disappointing to get my Skyhawk and never wear it coz its always 30 minutes ahead or behind (!!) . Thanks much.

It is possible to set the main analogue hour and minute hand 30 minutes out of phase with the digital readout, but doing so will also put the analogue UTC dial 30 minutes off. It can be done by using a variation of the proceedure for zeroing the watch hands as follows: 1. Rotate the crown in its normal opering position to set the watch in chronograph mode (mode dial pointing to "chr") 2. Pull out the crown to the second click. This should cause all the hands on the watch to return to zero. "HR" should appear on the left-hand digital display. This will allow you to move the hour hand by twisting the crown. Advance it to about half way between the 12 o'clock and 1 o'clock positions. 3. Press the top button. "MIN" should appear in the left-hand digital display. This allows you to adjust the minute hand. Twist the crown to advance it to the 6 o'clock, or 30 minute, position. Note that this will also move the minute hand on the small UTC dial to the 30 minute position. 4. Press the crown back into its normal position. 5. Reset the digital time and date according to a time zone that is in a one-hour offset from UTC. This is not a perfect solution. Your digital readings will show the correct time for all one-hour offset time zones while your analogue nads are 30 minutes out of phase. Your small UTC dial will also be 30 minutes out of phase with the digital UTC. Hope this helps.

How do I reset the correct time on this watch?


That depends on the make / model of the watch.

Most mechanical watches, and some battery operated analog watches have a knob that can be pulled out half way, to set the date, and all the way, to set the time.

Most digital watches have at least two buttons: one (I'll call "A") for setting the mode, and "B" for incrementing some value.

Typically, one presses A briefly, to cycle the display through "clock, calendar, alarm, chronometer etc".

By holding A for a few seconds, likely, something will start to flash. This indicates setting mode. Pressing A briefly again, will cycle through seconds, minutes, hours, day of month, month, and possibly year. (perhaps in opposite order). Pressing B will increment whatever number is flashing. Holding A again, will save any changes, and return the watch to normal mode.

I have Timex SR 920 SW watch, how to adjust the date and day?


Adjust the day of month (1-31) by pulling the crown pin out part way, and turning the pin counter clockwise, incrementing the date arm. Counterclockwise does nothing.

To adjust day of week (Mon-Sun), pull the pin out and rotate to turn minute/hour hands. Each time you pass 12:00, the weekday hand will increment by a half step.

I'm trying to set my son's Timex 1440 watch. I can get the minutes blinking but when I touch the top right button it only moves the minutes in 30-minute increments. So i can set it at 8:30 or 9:00, for...


I had the same problem with the watch my wife bought me. On the mode make sure it doesn;t say T2 in the top right hand corner. if it does you are in the wrong mode. Hit the mode button until it shows the day of the week highlighted and a date and then go through the normal time set procedures. That worked for me.

I purchased a Nat. Geo. Dakota watch in past fall..It was impossible to set. Paid a watch shop to set it....now it won't change to daylight savings time...nor will it change time zones when I travel....


When changing time zones, your watch must be manually set for the new time zone you will be entering. This watch is not designed to adjust for new time zones automatically. Instructions for changing time zones can be changed using the directions found on pages 2-4 in your instruction manual. When changing to and from DST, your watch should automatically adjust for this difference with the next 24 hours after the change. If your watch has not adjusted, you may be in an area that is not receiving signal. Check if your watch has received signal by using the directions found on page 1 of your instruction manual. If your watch has received signal in the past and no longer is receiving signal, your watch may need to be serviced or exchanged. Please contact Dakota Watch Company Customer Service by email at [email protected], or by phone at 1-888-459-0404.

G-shock Wavecepter is 1 hour to fast


(I posted this solution elsewhere but it should help you as well.)

Firstly, the manual that comes with these watches is absolute garbage,which is a stark contrast from the watches themselves. ( I love casiowatches - high value)

The good news is that Casio DID make a good manual for these wavecptor watches. If you go to this url

http://world.casio.com/wat/download/en/manual/

you will be at a spot where you can type in your 4 digit module numberand get a great document that tells you how to operate your unit andsome of how it works. (Adobe Acrobat - PDF file)

You should be able to hold in the "Adjust" button until the time zone starts flashing and push "Time Memo" and/or "Recieve" buttons until you are in the right time zone. Push "Adjust" again and your are done. The Manual above was very useful for me.

Hope that helps. :-)

Aquaswiss trax watch


AQUASWISS TRAX MODEL:

For clarity:
There are three adjustment knobs on the right side of the watch. Two are smaller than the main time adjustment knob. For clarification I will label:

Top knob: #1
Middle knob: #2
Bottom knob: #3

To adjust the stopwatch feature:

1. Turn #2 counter-clockwise until it pops out to its adjusting position.

2. Pull #2 towards the right until you feel the first click. (There are two click positions).

3. Simultaneously hold both #1 and #3 down until you see the 1/16 hand and the 30 minute hand rotate automatically to a fixed position.

Now you are ready to calibrate the stopwatch feature.

4. Click mulitiple times on #3 and you will see the 30 min. had move clock wise incrementally with every click. Keep clicking on #3 until the 30 min. hand reaches its apex (to its 12:00 position).

5. Now click multiple times on #1 and you will see the 1/16th hand move in very small increments clockwise. You may be bold and try to hold down #1 and let it swing as close as possible to the 12:00 position and then multiple click #1 to get it precisely to its apex.

You are almost done.

6. Now simultaneously hold #1 and #3 until you see both the 1/16th second hand and the 30 minute hands auto-rotate clockwise to their respective 12:00 positions.

Fantastic! However, now you have to return the watch back to its original locked position. This is where it could get a little tricky.

7. Make sure the time is correct. Using #2 fully extended to its 2nd click position you may adjust the time.

8. Using #2 extended to its 1st click position you may adjust the date. (Here's the trick, do not set the date for today's date. Rather, set it for the day before or in some cases, 2 days before. I will explain in a moment).

9. Now, depress #2 fully back towards the main body of the watch as best as possible and while holding down #2 turn it clockwise until it locks into position.

During this operation you may notice that the date will go forward until the watch locks into position, ergo, I had to make sure the date was for the day before...and it some cases, 2 days before.

Your watch is ready to use.

The stopwatch feature for this analog watch works very similarly to that of an actual stopwatch.

Press and hold #1 once to stop the 1/16 hand. Press and hold #3 to have both the 1/16th second hand and the 30 minute hands return to their 12:00 positions. Now you are ready to race!

Press #1 to start the stopwatch. Press #1 to stop the stopwatch. Press #3 to return the hands back to their respective positions. You may even press #3 after you press #1 to get a second reading but I will let you figure that out for yourself.

Hope this was helpful!
