DIGITAL WATCH USER INSTRUCTIONS May 27, 2006 - 05:59 PM On 5/26/2006 I bought from Walmart a $6.43 watch, on the back of which is written "AH 1175, 52, Battery CR2025, China Module, FMD, Base Metal Bezel, Stainless Steel Back, 100ft Water Resistant". It has no control buttons on top (where buttons may be accidentally pushed), the display is larger and more visible, and the color is dark, so I bought it even though I prefer models that have a fabric/velcro wrist-strap.
Four buttons on this watch are labelled: Light, Mode, Reset, and St/Sp. The instructions which I found inside its container refer to the Light button as A, the Mode button as B, the Reset button as C, and the Start/Stop button as D, but otherwise do not pertain to the watch, so I determined the button's functions by trial and error, as follows:
--
TO SELECT THE DISPLAY MODE
Push the Mode Button in order to select one of the following four display modes in the following order: Normal Time, Stop Watch, Alarm Reset, Time Reset.
In the Normal Time Mode, the Day of Week, the Hour, Minute and Second are displayed (none flash). If the Alarm and Hourly Chime icons are not displayed, the Alarm and Hourly Chime are turned off.
--
TO DISPLAY DAY OF WEEK, HOUR, MINUTE, SECOND AND WHETHER THE ALARM AND HOURLY CHIMES ARE ON:
Push the Mode button until no icon is flashing. The Alarm and Hourly Chimes are off if no Alarm or Chime icon is displayed beside the Second display.
--
TO DISPLAY THE DAY, MONTH AND DAY OF WEEK AND WHETHER THE ALARM AND HOURLY CHIMES ARE ON:
In Normal Time Mode, push the Start/Stop button. The Alarm and Hourly Chimes are off if no Alarm or Chime icon is displayed.
--
TO DISPLAY THE ALARM TIME
In Normal Time Mode, push the Reset button. The P or A beside the Alarm Time indicates PM or AM time. The P or A below the Alarm Time indicates a 12 hour clock; an H indicates a 24 hour clock.
--
TO STOP/START THE ALARM AND HOURLY CHIMES
In Normal Time Mode, hold the Start/Stop button down and push the Reset button (the Date and Day of Week will be displayed) to turn the preset Alarm and Hourly Chimes on, or off (to save the battery). To test the alarm, hold the Reset button down. The alarm and chimes are off when the alarm and chimes icons are not displayed.
--
TO STOP THE HOURLY CHIME
In Normal Time Mode, hold down the Reset button (the Alarm Time will be displayed) and push the Mode button until the Day of Week display is no longer highlighted; otherwise the hourly chime drains the battery.
--
TO SET THE TIME
To Fast/Forward until the correct number is displayed, hold the Start/Stop button down.
To set the Month of the Year, select the Time Reset Mode and push the Reset button until the Month of the Year number flashes; push the Start/Stop button until the correct Month of the Year is displayed and push the Reset Button.
To set the Day of Month, select the Time Reset Mode and push the Reset button until the Day of Month number flashes; push the Start/Stop button until the correct Day of Month is displayed and push the Reset Button.
To set the Day of Week, select the Time Reset Mode and push the Reset button until the Day of Week display flashes; push the Start/Stop button to until the correct Day of Week is displayed and push the Reset Button.
To set the Hour, select the Time Reset Mode and push the Reset button until the Hour number flashes; push the Start/Stop button until the correct Hour is displayed and push the Reset Button. For a 24 hour clock, push the reset button until an H is displayed. For a 12 hour clock, push the reset button until an A or P is displayed.
To set the Second, select the Time Reset Mode and push the Reset button until the Second number flashes. The Second number resets to Zero everytime the Start/Stop button is pushed. If the Start/Stop button is pushed as soon as the Second hand on your computer and watch are the same, the watch will be accurate to one second (to set your computer time to the second, log on to the Internet, right click on your PC's time display, select ADJUST DATE/TIME, INTERNET TIME, UPDATE NOW). The setting of the Second number will not be affected by setting the Minute number afterwards.
After the Second number is set, set the Minute number by selecting the Time Reset Mode and pushing the Reset button until the Minute number flashes; push the Start/Stop button until the correct Minute is displayed and push the Reset Button.
--
TO SET THE ALARM TIME AND TURN ON THE ALARM
Choose the Alarm Reset Mode. The alarm is turned on everytime the Alarm time is reset.
To select the Hour, push the Start/Stop button while the Hour is flashing and until the correct Hour is displayed, then push the Reset button (the Alarm and Hourly Chime icons will appear).
To select the Minute, push the Start/Stop button while the Minute is flashing and until the correct Minute is displayed, then push the Reset button.
Push the Mode button after the correct Alarm Time has been selected. The Alarm and Hourly Chime icons will be displayed beside the Second numbers.
The P icon indicates PM. The A icon indicates AM. The H icon indicates a 24 hour clock.
--
TO USE THE STOP WATCH
Choose the Stop Watch Mode. Push the Start/Stop button to begin the lap time. To pause the Stop Watch push the Start/Stop button to stop it and push it again to continue. To reset the Stop Watch to zero, stop the lap time by pushing the Start/Stop button, then push the Reset button (otherwise the Stop Watch will continue counting after other Modes are selected).

It is made in china?


Your watch is not fake. Japanese are employing workforce in China, Thailand and other countries, because labour there is much cheaper then in Japan. However, quality checks are of Japanese standards and your watch is exactly the same if it would be made in Japan. Rate me, plz.
