Key for setting time can be pulled fully (to set time) or shortly (only 0.5-1 mm) for setting alarm. then you should turn it and watch how it moves (automatic, without your turning). when it comes to desired time just push key in. the watch will automatically rewind to present time and it will re-start running.

How on earth do you set the time on this damn thing?

If you have the same watch as me I figured it out. When you are on the timer, press and hold mode. That brings you to alarm set, then press mode again and that brings you to time set. Hope it helps
