SOURCE: How to set kenneth cole unlisted digital watch with 4 buttons

OK I'll do my best to describe the procedure...

Part 1:
Press mode button till the seconds window blinks
Press Lap/Reset button once to make minutes blink
Cycle through minutes using Start/Stop Button

Part 2:
Press Lap/Reset button once again to make hours blink
Cycle through hours using Start/Stop Button

(for this part, it's a bit tricky. Hours can be displayed in AM, PM, or 24 hour duration. AM is represented by "A", PM is shown with "P" and 24 hour mode is shown with "H", so keep an eye in the seconds window when setting your hour so you know for sure if you have the right hour)

When your done setting minutes and hours, press mode button again till you get to main screen
A helpful hint is to remember when setting up anything in this watch, mode will cycle through the different screens, lap/reset will change the value of whatever your modifying (AKA minutes/hours) and start/stop scrolls through the different fields.

Hope this helps. Sorry if it's confusing, best I could do.

If there is screw in each side- you have to use two screwdrivers simultaneously.
If not- read the rest:
You may or may not have arrows inside bracelet. Arrows are pointing the way the pins must come out.
First you have to find out what sort of pins or even screws are used to keep links together.
Examine both bracelet sides and find the side where pin ends have a groove.
Start with a tiny screwdriver and unscrew one of the screws. If it turns, but doesn't come out, that means you have a pins instead.
For removing pins the best would be pin removing tool (approx.5GBP on ebay), but it's possible to do the job without it.
Take a hardened steel needle and blunt the sharp end to the approx. size of pin end diameter using any sharpening stone or sandpaper. Get an old towel and fold it to make a soft base for work (like small cusion). As you don't have a special bracelet holder you will need a pair of helping hands to hold the bracelet steady upright. You will need small hammer and pair of flat nose pliers as well.
NOTE: The pins MUST be driven split end out first, not vice versa. Make sure that the grooved pin ends are facing towel, not the needle and hammer!!!
Now place the watch on the folded towel, take that needle and smallest hammer you have and start driving the pin out using light blows. Do Not hit hard, as you will brake the needle, scratch your watch or even injure yourself. Watchmakers are using 45 gram hammer, so, calculate your strength of blows.
After a few blows check if the split end is coming out and when you see that the end is long enough to grab it with pliers, pull the pin out with pliers. When pulling, do NOT turn pliers, as pins tend to brake when twisted. Use firm grip and your strength to pull the pin without twisting.
After shortening the bracelet or adding extra link(s) make sure that the pins go back EXACTLY the same way as they came out- the blunt end first in the hole and the split (grooved) end last. Before doing that check remaining pins in bracelet to make sure that you put them back from the right side of bracelet.
It is recommended to use plastic hammer to drive pins back in or you will scratch or damage bracelet. If plastic hammer is not available use an old toothbrush handle (or some plastic item) as an absorber. Simply put pin into the hole as deep as you can with your fingers, put the toothbrush handle on split pin end and hit handle, not the pin.
Make sure that pin ends are flush with bracelet. If needed- hit few more times.
Job done!
If you do not want to do it yourself, any jeweler will do it in a matter of few minutes.
Don't forget to rate, please.

How to set my movements on my watch

Unscrew, then pull crown out 2 clicks. Spin crown, advancing hands clockwise. Keep turning until you notice the date changing at the 12 oclock mark. This is midnight. Then set time as needed.
Push crown in all the way. Then pull out one click. Turning crown sets day of week and day of month, turning opposite way.
Push crown all the way in and slightly depress as you screw it down until it stops.

I sent my Renato watch to be repaired at the Renato place but I have not heard anything yet Eduardo Cini here at 443 794 8707

Since the Renato brand was bought out by another company, service is still done on the Renato's but in my experience it can take 3 to 6 months to return the repaired watch. Patience may be required, and not all parts are available for this discontinued brand. Luckily, some user manuals are still available online. The Worldtimers are particularly hard to set without the instructions.

How do i match the digi time with the hand time?

Some Renato anidigis are world timers tracking second times and time zones. On my Vulcan World timer for example, pressing the crown allows you to select and set a second city and time zone for the digital display while the analog dial continues to show the primary local time you entered when you did the initial setup. If you want both displays to show the same time, simply set the same city for both displays. To set the secondary digital display on mine, after pressing the crown, CITY would blink, and I would choose the same city and time zone again rather than let the indicator rest on a different one at random.

How do you take off the cap of a t-rex renato watch?

This is for the Renato Beast Ana-Digi but it should apply to other Renatos and watches in general. (There are different configurations for how the battery is held in place depending on the movement - some require removal of a screw to free up the arm that holds the battery down).

First remove the caseback with a caseback removal tool - the type with a handle and interchangeable prongs. Use the prongs that come with the tool to suit the slots in the caseback. Harbor Freight sells a decent one for around $8 - they are also available from various internet sources. The caseback may be on very tightly. Remove the strap/bracelet at the lugs just to be safe that you don't damage it. Now hold the case very tightly with fingers against he lugs (not on any of the push buttons or crown) - or use a case holder tool. Insert the tool with prongs lined up with the slots (for this watch I used 2 prongs since the slots are 180 apart, but I could have used 3). Holding the case very firmly push the tool into the case back very firmly so that the prongs do not slip out of the slots and scratch the caseback and turn it counter-clockwise. It may take a few tries - be careful and get a frim grip on both the case and the tool.

Once the caseback is removed you will see the battery has a thin cover plate over it. There are 2 tabs holding the plate to the movement. With a small screwdriver push down on the tab that is at the 6:00 position and move it slight to the left (counter-clockwise) and the plate will pop up and out. Remove it very carefully with a tweezers (plastic tweezers are best) being careful not to touch anything in the movement with your hands or the tweezers. The battery is now free - in this watch is the larger button type CR2016 (that is the Energizer number). Take the battery with you to Batteries Plus (cheapest) or your local watch repair or Radio Shack (maybe) and get a replacement.

Assembly is the reverse of disassembly. Being careful not to touch anything in the movement or the battery with your hands - use watchpaper (lint free) or in a pinch a paper towel or kleenex will do. With the battery in place and the cover installed (make sure the tabs are in place) use a bulb blower (or canned dust spray) and gently blow around the movement to get out any dust that may have settled in.

Unless you are a professional diver and need 30ATM water resistance (doubtful at any rate with this watch) you do not need to tighten it down too hard - just tighten the caseback down firmly and remember not to swim or bath with it on - unless you have a true Professional Divers watch you should not bath/swim with your watch on anyway. Now next time you need to remove it, it will come off much easier.

Once you have the tool(s) and practice a few times (practice on an ratty old watch to get the feel of things) it is only going to cost you the price of the battery around $3-6, instead of $15+ to have the watch battery changer guy do it. If you own many quartz watches the tools will pay for themselves after 2 or 3 battery changes.

How to set the digital and analog as the same time

They are supposed to move in unison, if you are setting the digital time and the analog is not moving, there is a problem with the watch and it could need service. Here is a link to the manual for the watch, the movement for the Blue Angels is a C300 and you will see the manual also states the time mechanisms move in tandem.

Citizen does have service centers all over the globe, I am sure you can get the watch fixed if it does need service, You can find the local service center at the Citizen web site. Hope that helps.

Cant se time Citizen 8988-q02047 HSB wristwatch

In the time mode, press the upper right button for 2 seconds and the time display will flash. Then press the same button untill the entire time will flash, or both hour and minutes flash at same time. When the hour and minutes flash at same time, this adjust mode is the adjusting of the analog left display (A1). Now, press the lower button for adjusting de hour shown at the digital display that shows the same hour at analog display. This method is to adjusting the 8982 that is the "father" of 8988. Like a Citizen collector, and don´t know any website that you can view the setting instruction of 8988, only the 8982 is disposable here:
