How to set a vintage Hoya Japan battery operated international clock-- I can set the normal time 'hands' but I don't know how to set the numbers from 1-24...

There are two small 'wheels' to adjust the clock, one for the hands of the clock, the second one rotates the numbers from 1-24 that are within a half inch border directly around the hands of the clock. At the outer edge of the clock face are the names of some of the major cities in the world. The face is then surrounded by Hoya Crystal. It runs via a Double AA Battery

Sounds like it is just worn out.
Sometimes you can replace the generic clock works in these type of clocks. Go online and do a search for battery powered clock works, and see if you can match yours. They are removed quite easily after popping off the clock hands, and removing a nut under the hands that holds the clock works in the chicken.
Here's a link to a site that sells the clock movements... http://www.clockworks.com/

UTC is coordinated universal time, based on GMT.

Try setting your watch to "JED", as you are on the same longitude as Jeddah.

Click on the crown (the stem in the middle on the right side). There are three settings, and one of them will change the minute hands' behavior to normal. You might also check out this guide:

My radio controlled watch is exactly half an hour fast according to the hands, but the internal clock appears to be correct. This happened when I tried to adjust the watch to Canadian time

If I understood correctly this watch have a analog watch display ..and it is half an hour forward..but when you set timing or the alarm it behave normal ..and so the internal one is correct ..but just do not display the correct time on the analog one ...If it do not have any means to correct manually the analog watch ..I advice to try to remove all power and stop the indicators at the exact time ...(a sharp hour...) and power it back after the exact time it is forwarded ....This way the analog clock will be stopped..and the internal one will go on and will adjust at the spot by the radio time ..and you will have both timers in correct display ...If it does have buttons or so in the back ..try to correct them by hand ..

The digital time and the analog do not match. How can I adjust the time so that the digital and analog will be the same.

You don't say what make of watch you have but working on the assumption that most watches are very similar, try the method used by Casio.

Press the mode button (at 8 O'clock?) to step through the setting program until the display says "HS".

Now press the 2 or 4 O'clock buttons to advance or ****** the hands until the correct time is shown.

Press the mode button until you return to the normal time keeping mode.

I have a quartz president wall clock, I changed the battery and set the time OK but the chime needs setting and I have no instructions as it is a very old clock

These are general quartz wall clock instructions as I dont know enough about what type/style of clock you have.
  • Open the access door to the dial and hands of the clock if required. Some battery-operated clock movements are sealed inside the clock case with a back panel that is screwed in place. To gain access to the hand set knob, remove the back panel screws using the appropriate tipped screwdriver.
  • Turn the minute hand (or turn the hand set knob at the rear of the movement if access is available) carefully counterclockwise or clockwise until the correct time is reached. Keep in mind that using the hand set from the rear would require turning the knob in a clockwise direction in order for the hands to turn counterclockwise.
  • Move the hour hand carefully with your fingers near the center of the hand to the hour that the clock is striking if the striking chime is not counting the correct hour. The hour hand is a friction fit hand and will move without engaging the minute hand.
  • Replace the back panel and tighten the screws with the screwdriver if removal of the back panel was necessary to access the hand set knob.
  • Close the front access door if required.

    The hands are not setting themselves.

    The controlling radio signal for the National Physical Laboratory's clock is transmitted on the MSF 60kHz signal via the transmitter at Rugby, operated by British Telecom International. This should have a range of some 1,500 km or 937.5 miles. All of the British Isles are of course within this radius.
    The National Physical Laboratory's role as keeper of the national time standards is to ensure that the UK time-scale agrees with Co-ordinated Universal Time (UTC) to the highest levels of accuracy and to make that time available across the UK. As an example, the MSF (MSF being the three-letter call sign to identify the source of the signal) radio broadcast provides the time signal for, electronic share trading, the clocks at most railway stations and for BT's speaking clock.

    How to set time on a bulova marine star 96C30

    For some reason you cannot find the manuals on the Bulova web site any longer. But don't worry....
    I have the manual for the Bulova Marine Star 96C30 Watch. This is easily fixable.
    Below, I have typed the instruction on how to fix this issue as well as reset the time and calendar and a few extra tips in case you forgot....

    Here is what it says to do if the hands don't match up with the display time (usually happens after you change the battery).
    First, you must locate the buttons on the watch.
    The "A" button is at the 2 o'clock position (upper right). The "B" button is at the 10 o'clock position (upper left) The "C" button is at the 8 o'clock position (lower left) The "M" (mode) button is at the 4 o'clock position (lower right), and is the only button you can pull out to set the times, calendar and programming.
    To RESET the watch and do the ZERO POSITIONING after changing a battery or having a display error, do the following.
    RESET 1. Pull the "M" button out to the setting position. 2. hold down the "A", "B", and "C" buttons simultaneously for 3 seconds, then release them. All digit segments will turn on and display completely.
    ZERO POSITIONING 1. Press the "B" button and all the segments in the digital time will reset to zero, with "UTC" showing in the main digital window. 2. Zero the "UTC" minute and hour hand (located in 12 o'clock sub-dial) to the 24 o'clock maker (straight up). Button "A" will move the hands clockwise, and button "C" will move the hands counter clockwise. 3. Press button "B" - "HR" shows in the main digital window. Adjust the main (large) hour hand to the 12 o'clock (midnight) position using "A" and "C" buttons. At the same time, observe the synchronized 24 hour hand (small dial to the left of the main dial), to insure that it also moves to point to "24". 4. Press button "B". "MIN" shows in the display window. Adjust the large minute hand to also point to the 12 using the "A" and "C" buttons. 5. Push the "M" (mode) button back in to its normal position. The watch beeps and at the same time the hands jump slightly. ALL RESET and ZERO POSITIONING are now complete. 6. Reset the time, calendar and other modes.
    To set the time. Note that changing the time in any of the cities will automatically update the time for all the cities. 1. Press the "M" button to move the mode hand to (TME) 2. Press either the "A" or "C" button to move to the desired city. 3. Pull the "M" button out to the setting position. 4. Press the "A" button. SECONDS will blink. Set them with "C". 5. Press the "A" button again, and MINUTES will blink. Set them with the "C" button. 6. Press the "A" button again, and HOURS will blink. Set with the "C" button. 7. Press the "A" button again, and 12 or 24 hours tim format will appear. 8. Push in the "M" button to its normal position.
    To set the calender 1. push the "M" button to move the mode hand to (CAL) 2. Set the city using the "A" or "C" buttons. 3. Pull out the "M" button to the "setting" position. The numbers of the "month" starts to blink. this is an "american" date system with the month first, day second, and year third. Use "C" button to adjust the month. 4. Push the "A" button. The date (day) will flash. Adjust with the "C" button. 5. Push the "A" button. The YEAR flashes. Adjust with the "C" button. 6. Push the "M" button back in. The calender is simultaneously adjusted for all cities.
    Couple of other "tips".
    Switching the time on the digital display with the time shown on the hands: 1. Press the "M" button until the mode hand is in (TME) or (CAL) mode. 2. Pressing the "A" and "C" button together. The time will switch the between the main hands (analog) and the digital display.
    Temporary Hand Retraction Pressing and holding the "B" button will move the hands out of the way of the display. Repressing the "B" button will put the hands back at the correct time.
    hope this helps.

    Analog clock not in sync with digital clock

    This problem may be due to your analog hands being improperly zeroed. To find out, try this: 1. Put the watch in chronograph mode by rotating the crowon in its normal position to "chr" 2. Pull out the crown two clicks. This should cause all of the hands to point to zero. If you do this and your minute hand points to 1 o'clock, or five minutes, you will know that this is the problem. If this is the problem, you can can correct it by zeroing the hands as follows: 1. Put the watch in chronograph mode by rotating the crowon in its normal position to "chr" 2. Pull out the crown two clicks. This should cause all of the hands to point to zero, or close to it. You should also notice the letters "HR" in the lefthand digital display. This allows you to move the hour hand by rotating the crown. If the hour hand is not pointing at 12 o'clock, rotate it so that it does. 3. Push the top button once. The letters "MIN" should appear in the lefthand digital display. This allows you to move the minute hand on the large dial, and the minute and hour hands on the small UTC dial. Rotate the crown so that the minute hand points directly to 12 o'clock. 4. Push the top button again. The letters "SEC" should appear in the lefthand digital display. Rotate the crown to point the second hand directly at 12 o'clock. 5. Push the crown back into its normal position. Set the digiatl time and date in your tie zone, and your analog hands should match the digital read-out. If the zeroing of the hands is not the problem, I don't know what is wrong with the watch.
