Accutime watch in roman numerals, has 3 small circles on inside of the face of the watch . i don't kno what they are for or how to run them?


I'm not familiar with Accutime watches, but it may be that the 3 sub-dials are there just for decoration.
If they're not, then the upper and lower buttons on the right will control the hands on the sub-dials.
Check the following:-
Is there any movement in the buttons when you press them, or do they feel solid as if they are part of the casing?
Do the hands on the sub-dials look as though they are slightly raised or do they look as though they are glued on?
Does pressing either of the buttons cause any of the hands to move?
If pressing the buttons has no effect at all then you can be sure that the sub-dials are decorative only.
If the sub-dial hands do move when you try the above suggestions, then get back in touch for further instructions.

I just bought a police kickers timepieces watch i dont know how to set the day i've tried hundreds of time but its not working can some one help me !!


Since you have stated ABSOLUTELY nothing about provinance... model, year... owners manual POLICE being a pretty decent watch from the UK (I'm going to skip right on past the AUTHENTIC notion... Chronograph (shown).

If your your watch is a REGULAR knock-off (replicant)... t has the miyota movement...

A highly precise and reliable motor
in it's own right.
(sets very much like the high end valjoux cousins)

It is a crown-set... typically a three position stem set.

Force nothing... !!

Some GENTLY unscrew the crown... others will pull out
to set: 1, TIMW 2, DATE... THREE (back to normal -closed).
.
In the closed position

The stop/start butons do precisely that on those SUB-DIALS.

In the SET positions the start/reset buttons are used to ZERO those sub-dials (press & hold... then individual clicks will move each hand to zero).

Hope this helps!

How do i change the time on the three small dials


Hello Garrett,

"Three small dials"... My guess is that we are talking
a chronometer... (stopwatch)... "ZERO Process".

Not only are the three sub-dials usually settable... but also the sweep second hand.

Trouble: After resetting the watch... the hands go back to the same position...

Solution: You want to "ZERO" your dials... one by one.

These watches typically need to have the stem out to the third position... then press the top "start" timer button... observe ONE of your dials is moving. As it approaches the desired number release the button and step it into position with single button pushes.

Go to the bottom "stop" button... Repeat the process!

Push the stem in to the middle "set" position...
Repeat the process!

Again... press the top "start" timer button... zero
and finally press the top "stop" timer button... and zero.

Set the time and date... push that stem back into the home position... and record 35 seconds on your watch... stop and reset...

If everything does not come back exactly to ZERO...

Then that is called an iterative process (do it again).

Fine tune it!

Good Job.
(comment me back if I didn't hit the spot)

Reset fossil mens es3380


fossil mens es3380 (assuming chronograph)

If you are talking about resetting the "sub-dials"

ZERO (RESET THE watch timers...
Obviously they are going to the "zero" spot ... or
we wouldn't be talking ... writing (whatever).

((but this is where they must be to start))

Simply pull out the stem to the furthest position and
press & hold the top button... You will see a sub-dial rotating...
release it when it gets close to ZERO and single click it where you want it...

Repeat the process with the OTHER (bottom) button...

Repeat the process...

Push the stem... HALF-WAY HOME and figure out for yourself which button move what hand.

When everything is ZEROED CORRECTLY...

Set the time & date "normally"

Normal the stem ...

and happy TIME - KEEPING...

If all that fails... as Tom Chichester says... "RTFM"
(read the manual... (but where's the fun))...

How can we set the chronograph dial


From time to time, chrono sub dial hands will be off. Solution is rather simple, pull out your crown and push either top and bottom button, each button will set certain hands on sub dials. This applies to both positions of crown (depending on complication & number of sub dials).

I need the manual of breil milano shosholoza.the model is bw0480


The crown has 3 positions.

Normal screwed down.
First pull out position.
Second pull out position.

Setting the Time:
Pull out the crown to position 3.
Rotate the crown to set the exact time.
Ensure that you are in the daytime12 hour segment by allowing the hands to pass 12 o'clock and notice if the date moved on or not.
If the date changed, then you will need to advance at least 2 hours before moving on to set the date.
If you do not need to change the date, return the crown to position 1.


Setting the Date:
DO NOT DO THIS IF THE WATCH IS BETWEEN 8pm & 2am
Pull crown to position 2.
Rotate the crown clockwise to set to the correct date.
Return the crown to position 1.


Setting the Alarm [12 hour]
Pull the crown to position 2.
Rotate the crown anti clockwise to move the alarm hand to the desired time.
Return the crown to position 1.
To activate the alarm, press the 8 o'clock button. You will hear 2 beeps.
To deactivate the alarm, press the 8 o'clock button. You will hear 1 beep.
NB If the alarm is not cancelled while it sounds the first time, it will repeat again in 2 minutes time. The alarm sound last for 15 seconds. If the alarm time coincides with 1 beep of the countdown, the alarm function will be cancelled.

Press the 4 o'clock button to enter setting mode. You will hear 1 beep.
Press the 4 o'clock button to move the central timing hand successively to the desired countdown time.
Wait 3 seconds for the watch to automatically exit the setting mode.
You can change the duration of the countdown [except in the last minute] at any time.
e.g. If the countdown is set to 10minutes, and you now want to change the countdown to 9 minutes, press the 4 o'clock button. The hours/seconds counter sub-dial will perform one complete turn and then stop at 60, before continuing.


Activating the Countdown:
Press the 2 o'clock button to start the countdown. You will hear 2 beeps.
The hours/seconds counter sub-dial will perform one complete turn and then stop at 60, before continuing.

Countdown tone:
There are 2 beeps every minute.
in the last minute:
50 seconds=1 beep.
40 seconds=1 beep.
30 seconds=2 beeps.
20 seconds=2 beeps.
10 seconds and less=1 beep every second with zero being 1 second long beep. Timer function automatically starts.


Timer:
After countdown has finished the timer starts automatically.
The central timing hand indicates the minutes with 1 step every 12 seconds. The hour/minutes counter sub-dial indicates the hours up to a maximum of 96.
Press the 4 o'clock button to see the timer seconds [display lasts up to a minute].
Press the 4 o'clock button to see the timer hours.
The timer has a maximum time of 96 hours [4 days] after which the hour/seconds sub-dial counter will stay at 0 and the central timing hand will stay at 12.


Start/Stop Timer:
Press the 2 o'clock button to stop the timer. You will hear 1 beep.
Press the 2 o'clock button to resume the timer. You will hear 2 beeps.


Setting the Countdown & Timer:
Countdown reset:
Press the 2 o'clock button to stop the countdown. You will hear 1 beep.
Press the 4 o'clock button to reset.


Setting the Timer:
Press the 2 o'clock button to stop the timer. The hour/seconds counter sub-dial will show the elapsed hours and the central timing hand the elapsed minutes.
Press the 4 o'clock button to view the seconds elapsed on the hour/seconds counter sub-dial.
Press the 4 o'clock button to reset.


Resetting the Hands:
If the hands do not zero correctly, which might occur after a battery change or a violent shock, you can make adjustments by doing the following settings as long as the countdown is not in operation.
To correct the hour/seconds counter sub-dial, pull the crown out to position 2 and wait 1 second.
Press either the 2 or 4 o'clock button; the central timing hand will turn and stop [not necessarily at 12].
Press the 2 o'clock button to increment the hours/seconds counter sub-dial hand to position it at 60.
To correct the central timing hand, press the 4 o'clock button to increment the hand to the 12 position.
Return the crown to position 1.



If the battery had been replaced, the central timing hand defaults to the 10 minute position. If the battery had not been replaced, the central timing hand will return to the previously set position.

Try this.

Pull the winder out fully. Then press the top right chronograph button to move the centre seconds hand on. Then push the winder back in.
