Generally the chime is turned on or off by pressing a combination of two buttons. If you don't have the instructions that came with the watch, then perhaps you can figure it out with a little trial and error. On watches similar to yours, pressing two buttons at once changes functions such as 12/24 hour time, turning the alarm or chime on/off, switching the day/month in the date display (ie. 12-6 to 6-12), etc. You will just have to figure out which combination turns the chime on and off.
Press and hold the bottom right button; this displays the alarm. At the same time, press the bottom left to toggle the hourly chime. When the chime is enabled, the 'day of week' display at the top of the dial will show all days as selected. When the chime is disabled, no days will show as been selected. I have one of these watches and it took me a while to find this out! HTH
think of the top buttons from left to right as A & B and the bottom buttons from left to right as C & D. The way to turn the chime off and on is by holding the C & D Buttons simatainiously and the pressing the B button. This will allow you to turn the Hourly Chime Off and On. When you see the digital chime pattern in the display the chime is on. When no pattern is shown the chime is off. Hope this helps the ton of people who have purchased these watches & either did not have instructions with or lost them. This perticular watch has been annoying the whole household for quite sometime and has now been put to rest..lol
Take the batteries out from the base, where the chime mechanism is. Wait till it gets close (20 seconds till) to a specific hour time, like 8:00 or 9:00, replace the batteries for the chime mechanism. And then count the chimes at the hour. If they are correct, you are set. If they are incorrect, turn the time back 15 minutes before the hour and bring it right back and monitor the chimes again. Hopefully this should fix it. Please post the results.
to turn off hourly chime on the times wr 30m, simply press (in any mode, i just use the regular clock mode) the start/stop button (top right hand button) once (for about half a second).
if you don't hear anything, you've turned off the hourly chime! if you hear two short beeps, you've turned on the hourly chime. turning the chime off/on is cyclic. if you press once and hear nothing, it's off. if you press again, you'll hear two beeps and the hourly chime is now on. a lot of times that button hits my wrist (i wear it on my left hand) by accident, and that's how the chime turns on and off. i hope this helps someone.
