According to the directions: Press B - bottom left button,to go into Alarm Mode. Press D - upper right button - to activate the alarm and press again to activate the Chime, which shows on bottom left as a bell. To activate these press D. To DEACTIVATE them press D again. Press B 3 times to return to Time Telling Mode. It took a few tries, but D and B are the keys to stopping that annoying chime!
I know it's been a year since this question was asked, but I was trying to find the answer today and finally figured it out. I thought I would answer for someone else.
I have a sportek SP1020ZEL. Pressing mode first and then alarm did not work for me. Pressing mode first on my watch only put it into the stopwatch mode, and then pressing the alarm button is for reseting the stopwatch. So I tried it the other way around, and it worked.
First, press and HOLD the alarm button (bottom right button) and then the mode button (bottom left button). My sportek doesn't show a little bell symbol, but I noticed that with one press all the days of the week showed and when I pressed again all the days disappeared. So I waited for the hour and found that when there is no days of the week visible the hourly chime is off. I don't think this works with all sportek watches but it is worth a try. (I did not try holding all the buttons for 5 seconds).
Push and hold the reset button on the bottom right of the watch and then push the mode button on the bottom left. When you push the mode button, all the days of thge week should no longer be illuminated. This is the same to turn the beep on, only you need to see the days of the week on not off.
mcdevito75 here, The stem has 2 positions, Carefully slip a fingernail under the stem and lift, it may take a few trys to get used to it, in this first position you should be able to set the DATE very easily and Maybe the DAY of the wwek also, turn the stem 1 way to change the DATE and the other way For the DAY of the week., Let"s figure you can only set the DATE in this first position, First thig to do is set the DAY of the week, go thru the watches 24 hour cycle and set the DAY to 1 DAY before the DAY you need, now in that first position of the stem, set the DATE to 1 DATE before the DATE you need, now in the 2nd position we all know pull the stem out to set the time of day, go thru the 24 hour cycle to bring up the DAY of the week and DATE you need. Now your watch is set and will change on tome at around mid-nite.
I have an Arnette watch as well and have long lost its manual. The model of my watch is AR 2201. Before it didn't beep, but after my move (where the watch must have been bouncing around a lot), it started to on the hour, EVERY HOUR. It has been driving me crazy. Hopefully this will help you, though the answer comes so late. For my watch, I pressed the ST/STP and RESET buttons (which both happen to be on the right side of the face) simultaneously. The watch beeped when I did this and I saw the little bell icon disappear! Good luck with yours.
To turn hourly beep on/off: Hold the RESET button (lower right) and press the MODE button (lower left). When the days of the week light up, the hourly beep is on; when the days of the week are off, the hourly beep is off.
To turn the alarm on/off: Hold the RESET button and press ST/STP (upper right). Alarm light will go on/off.
in order to unset the military time on the watch you must hold down the two top buttons until the the 12 hour format comes back. in order to turn off the alarm you must hold down the two right buttons until they beep..and then the alarm will go off
