Watches - Answered Questions & Fixed Issues


The point of a radio-controlled watch is that you should not have to move the hands manually. It is meant to respond to a time signal send from various places in the USA, UK, Germany, Japan and (I think) China.
The signal's strength varies considerably, depending on where you are located and the ambient temperature. It may need some application and persistence to get the watch synchronized with the signal, this will cause the hands to move to the correct local time - even then it may need correction if you are in a different UTC time zone or on Daylight Saving Time (DST) locally. Not knowing the make complicates the validity of any information.

I have found that the sync signal is broadcast on the hour for about five minutes and is best received at night where the signal travels further.
Ensure your watch is fully charged and leave your watch by a window overnight for best results.
If you still have difficulty, use an internet search to find the nearest broadcast station to where you are and work out which direction-facing window is best sited to face it.

I have two RC watches - one Citizen and one Casio. One likes to have the left side of the watch facing the window and the other favours the 12 o'clock facing the window, As I don't know the make of your watch I would recommend trying to place it in various orientations until you find one that works for you. I have found the whole set up performs best in cold air situations - and so are more reliable in the winter.

Guessing further, If you bring up the signal display function it may force the watch into signal sync mode - always remembering the 'on the hour' signal broadcasts. You may also find a way of adjusting the hour to suit if it differs for you once it is synced.

There is a very good chance that the pendulum regulator wheel and rocker assembly is out of adjustment or has a bent tooth or finger that is jamming the movement.
The adjustment of this is extremely sensitive and so a slight misalignment will at some point show up when the causes of the misalignment rotate to align once again, which is why it is a periodic fault.
Despite it being a very sensitive area and in need of a light hand to remedy, for anyone experienced in working on this kind of movement, it would be a simple and speedy repair.
Unless you have experience of working with such movements, I would recommend leaving it alone and seeking help from a professional, because of the risk of making it worse rather than better, so making it more difficult to repair in the long run.
I have a 1840 Mauthe wall clock that had that exact fault, and once it was properly aligned, it has kept excellent time for the last seven years so be gentle with it.

Tip & How-To about Watches
Changing Watch Batteries
Lots of posters ask "what is the battery in my (name of watch)" with a view to changing it yourself. This is a bad idea for many reasons. You don't have the tools or knowledge to remove a rotary screw on back, or the gasket sealant for a waterproof watch. Some fashion watches have 4 traditional screw and need professional grade jeweler screwdrivers. Also, there are about 20 batteries commonly used in watches, in various sizes and internal technology, Lithium Ion, Silver Oxide and Manganese Alkaline. If you buy them, you generally have to buy 10!

Don't sweat the details. Just take the watch to your local jeweler. They have all the batteries at hand and the tools to remove the back. It is done whilst you wait for $8 to $15!

Ground the positive post of battery to the case with something metallic like tweezers! It will start working immediately!

You don't unless you are a watchmaker with the tools and know-how.

To set time and date, you must in "Time Keeping Mode" (display day, date & time) then press and hold the left-up button until it start flashing. To set press right-down button, to go next setting press left-down button.

To toggle between 12-hour to 24-hour, again, must in "Time Keeping Mode" then press right-down button.

Take your relic watch to a jeweler who will open it, identify the battery, and perhaps sell and install a replacement.

The second hand should start automatically if the battery was replaced correctly.

The above link includes an international contact. That direct contact should provide at minimum whether they can supply a band and/or what would be necessary.

However, you may be able to use a Nato band on the watch as an alternative. www.clockworksynergy.com

Lastly, you might take it to a watch repair shop, have them exactly measure the band (the broken one) and see what they might supply.
