We add a Leap Day on February 29, almost every four years. The leap day is an extra, or intercalary, day and we add it to the shortest month of the year, February.
In the Gregorian calendar three criteria must be taken into account to identify leap years:
The year can be evenly divided by 4;
If the year can be evenly divided by 100, it is NOT a leap year, unless;
The year is also evenly divisible by 400. Then it is a leap year.
What a great watch! It has a super-fine piezo-electronic motor to move the date wheel! Very cool. Its quite a show to go through the date/leap-year check, and then observe the watch catch back up to the correct time afterwards. Battery lasts ~five years.
I downloaded the manual (your model number on watch back) after a short search online (beware of trojans/viruses).
Setting after a battery replacement requires shorting certain pins inside the watch to set the leap-year, and date. The back unscrews, and may require the special watch-wrench, available online. I unscrewed mine VERY CAREFULLY with fine pliers, confirming that I was doing this in a clean, dust-free location. The instructions are quite specific, must be followed carefully to set up correctly. Have a fine wire jumper to set the leap-year. I learned this because I did not want to pay an inexperienced jeweler $100 to replace the battery.
You have to set the year, the month and the date. Then you set the time zone. After that you can set the local time. You may also have to set the Daylight Savings Time. The watch has a built in calendar that may run from let's say January first 2000 to the year 2070 (just a guess). If you set the calendar correctly you do not have to adjust the date when a month has 30 days, or when it is a leap year.
in order to set the repeater chime you need to set the watch and the sub watch to the same time.
This watch has comes with crown in position 0 , if you pull it out one level it becomes position 1 and if you pull it out one more time it is position 2 .
There are 3 buttons on the watch also. The button directly above the crown is button A the button below the crown is button B and the button directly across the crown is button C.
To set time you must first pull out crown to position 2 when the small second hand is at 12 o'clock position and it is stopped.
The mode will also at this time go to 0 and the sub watch second hand( the long second hand with the sun on it ) will also go to 0.
At this time you can just move the crown to set the proper time to the main watch . Now if you press the B button to set the sub watch . Each time you press the B button it will advance one minute hold down the B button and will advance time faster.
Do this to set the sub watch time make sure you watch the am and pm to make sure you are getting the proper time of day.
if the sub watch second hand ( the long second hand) is not aligned to 12 oclock then press the A button keep pressing button or hold it down to go faster until it is aligned at the 12 oclock position
Now push crown in back to 0 position for your time for your watch and sub watch should be set.
Set leap year. Pull crown to position 1 Press the B button to adjust leap year. the leap year is set by how many years from the previous leap year it has been . So 2008 was the previous leap year so we will h ave to set leap year at year 2 . The hands of the leap year are connected to the month so you must hold down a and b button or just press the b button to get to year 2 .
once you do that your leap year should be set.
to set the Repeater ( this is a beep from the watch to tell you the time with sound) make sure crown is in 0 position and hold a button for a couple of seconds to activate Reapter.
you can press any other button to end the chime .
also to get to leap year view while crown is in 0 position hold down the b button for 2 seconds . Pushes any button to return to normal calendar.
Hi,here is a solution to help you out:
1. Pull the crown out one click. A. Turn dial until function hand rests on "CAL" 2. Pull dial out one more click (should be all the way out) A. hold down button "A" (top button) until the second hand completes one counter clockwise rotation (should be pointing at current month) B. Press "A" button a second time and the Day/Leap year hand will move. 3. At this point spin the crown either backwards or forwards and watch as the Day/Leap year hand spins clockwise or counter-clockwise. The Date will adjust per each revolution. However,you still have every reason to own the manual of your wrist watch for future references,so follow the link below to download the manual of your wrist watch; http://www.citizenwatch.com/COA/English/settings.asp
There are so many aplications use of the manual will be manditory.
Use the numbers on the back of your watch and you will have a PDF version of your instruction manual. Thanks and take care
1. Pull the crown out one click.
A. Turn dial until function hand rests on "CAL"
2. Pull dial out one more click (should be all the way out)
A. hold down button "A" (top button) until the second hand completes one counter clockwise rotation (should be pointing at current month)
B. Press "A" button a second time and the Day/Leap year hand will move.
3. At this point spin the crown either backwards or forwards and watch as the Day/Leap year hand spins clockwise or counter-clockwise. The Date will adjust per each revolution.
Hope this helps as it took me using the correct movement number on the url in the previous post (for Calibre 8700 the movement number is "E870").
Pull out crown to the time setting position (second click) and set time to 5.30 pm or am. Push crown back completely. Pull out crown to the date setting position (first click) and set it to 26th, then pull out crown further out to the time setting position (second click) and adjust watch hands forwards until the date changes to 27th. Date is changing at midnight, so, continue to adjust hands forward to the right time. Rate me, plz.
