    The problem is that the clock was not able to receive the signal for the clock to set itself. There is actually a small antenna built in to the clock. When the clock was not able to receive the signal, it is because of interference in the area.

    If the battery is good...my best advise is to place the clock to where signal was strong. It should be at least 6 feet away from any electronic or electrical devices inside your home.

    The clock rotates very fast and stop every four hours.. this is how the clock search for the signal. it will not stop for every fours hours until it acquires the right signal to set its timer to standard time.

    I hope this is the advise you want. You can also verify this from this manual.

I put a new battery box with new hands on my wall clock and hr hand don't stay tight


Make sure you squeeze it in tightly before putting on the minute hand.

Unless you have a faulty mechanism/hand.

Min are incorrect & hr. is on 24hr.. SkyScan


Suggest you pull the batteries out and do all of the settings from scratch.

As you press the settings button, you will be able to pick 12 or 24 hour. Don't enter a time. Just leave it on auto.

If you don't get the signal receive icon (looks like a radar antenna) move the clock around and try some other locations.

Minute hand on atomic clock keeps moving


Take the battery out and put it back in the opposite direction. Wait 5 seconds. Put it back in the correct position. The minute hand will go around very fast and eventually come to a stop. This can take a couple days. That means it is waiting for a radio signal from Colorado. For a better signal, place the clock in a window that is facing Colorado. The minute hand will begin to spin very fast until it stops at the correct time. Again, this could take up to 2 days.

The crown has 3 positions.

Normal screwed down.
First pull out position.
Second pull out position.

Setting the Time:
Pull out the crown to position 3.
Rotate the crown to set the exact time.
Ensure that you are in the daytime12 hour segment by allowing the hands to pass 12 o'clock and notice if the date moved on or not.
If the date changed, then you will need to advance at least 2 hours before moving on to set the date.
If you do not need to change the date, return the crown to position 1.


Setting the Date:
DO NOT DO THIS IF THE WATCH IS BETWEEN 8pm & 2am
Pull crown to position 2.
Rotate the crown clockwise to set to the correct date.
Return the crown to position 1.


Setting the Alarm [12 hour]
Pull the crown to position 2.
Rotate the crown anti clockwise to move the alarm hand to the desired time.
Return the crown to position 1.
To activate the alarm, press the 8 o'clock button. You will hear 2 beeps.
To deactivate the alarm, press the 8 o'clock button. You will hear 1 beep.
NB If the alarm is not cancelled while it sounds the first time, it will repeat again in 2 minutes time. The alarm sound last for 15 seconds. If the alarm time coincides with 1 beep of the countdown, the alarm function will be cancelled.


Battery EOL [End Of Life]
The Swiss ISA 8270 movement uses a 395 cell and will signify a low power state by advancing the small seconds hand 4 steps every 4 seconds.

You can specify a countdown of between 1 and 10 minutes.
Press the 4 o'clock button to enter setting mode. You will hear 1 beep.
Press the 4 o'clock button to move the central timing hand successively to the desired countdown time.
Wait 3 seconds for the watch to automatically exit the setting mode.
You can change the duration of the countdown [except in the last minute] at any time.
e.g. If the countdown is set to 10minutes, and you now want to change the countdown to 9 minutes, press the 4 o'clock button. The hours/seconds counter sub-dial will perform one complete turn and then stop at 60, before continuing.

The hours/seconds counter sub-dial will perform one complete turn and then stop at 60, before continuing.

Countdown tone:
There are 2 beeps every minute.
in the last minute:
50 seconds=1 beep.
40 seconds=1 beep.
30 seconds=2 beeps.
20 seconds=2 beeps.
10 seconds and less=1 beep every second with zero being 1 second long beep. Timer function automatically starts.

Press the 4 o'clock button to see the timer hours.
The timer has a maximum time of 96 hours [4 days] after which the hour/seconds sub-dial counter will stay at 0 and the central timing hand will stay at 12.

Setting the Countdown & Timer:
Countdown reset:
Press the 2 o'clock button to stop the countdown. You will hear 1 beep.
Press the 4 o'clock button to reset.


Setting the Timer:
Press the 2 o'clock button to stop the timer. The hour/seconds counter sub-dial will show the elapsed hours and the central timing hand the elapsed minutes.
Press the 4 o'clock button to view the seconds elapsed on the hour/seconds counter sub-dial.
Press the 4 o'clock button to reset.


Resetting the Hands:
If the hands do not zero correctly, which might occur after a battery change or a violent shock, you can make adjustments by doing the following settings as long as the countdown is not in operation.
To correct the hour/seconds counter sub-dial, pull the crown out to position 2 and wait 1 second.
Press either the 2 or 4 o'clock button; the central timing hand will turn and stop [not necessarily at 12].
Press the 2 o'clock button to increment the hours/seconds counter sub-dial hand to position it at 60.
To correct the central timing hand, press the 4 o'clock button to increment the hand to the 12 position.
Return the crown to position 1.



If the battery had been replaced, the central timing hand defaults to the 10 minute position. If the battery had not been replaced, the central timing hand will return to the previously set position.

It does that until it receives a signal. Leave it overnight and it will probably get one. Instructions for this clock are at skyscaninfo.com

Acqua Indiglo Digital Watch


My watch has 4 buttons (2 on the left, 2 on the right) plus the "Indiglo" button. Use the "Mode" button (lower left) to move between the time and the stopwatch. When seeing the stopwatch, hold the "Mode" button. This will get you to the alarm setting mode. Press the "Mode" button again to switch to the time setting mode. Use the "Start/Stop" button (upper right) to move from seconds > minutes > hour > date > day of week. Use the "Spl/Reset" button (lower right) to change the numbers.

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.
