SOURCE: Setting the darn thing

If you don't have the instruction manual you can go to this link and on the right side of the page you can type in the model number. (it will tell you where to locate the model number) I tried this for a Bulova from 1998 and it worked but I don't know how far it will go back but it's worth a try.

SOURCE: how to set day of week mini dial?

Pull out the crown and advance hands forwards. When the hour and minute hand will pass 12 o'clock (midnight), you will notice the day hand will jump to the next (following) day. Advance hands as long as needed to reach the desired day.

Rate me, please.

I have a Kenneth Cole KC1683 watch. I don't understand what the dial at the top left does. There are 3 dials. The main one has the hour and minute hands. There is another small one for the seconds....


It is the dual time zone dial. Set it for another timezone, like London or whatever you're interested in, a timezone your friend is in so you don't call them at 3 in the morning.

I have model fs-2919 would like to know what the other dials are for i dont have the booklet thanks for your help


The three small dials on this watch are all part of a "stopwatch" system. The small dial at the 12 o'clock is for tenths of a second( each half circle completed is one second or 1 whole rotation equals 2 seconds.) the small dial at the 6 o'clock counts a full 60 seconds for each revolution, and the dial at the 9 o'clock counts minutes(one full circle equaling an hour.) when the stop watch is started the 12 o'clock and 6 o'clock dials will start at the same time. you will notice that every half turn on the top dial equals one "tick" on the bottom dial. After the first minute of timing the top dial will stop ticking as it is for more precise timing of things that take less than 1 minute. each full rotation of the bottom dial will then equate to one "tick" of the 9 o'clock dial. hence the three dials counting tenths of a second, seconds and minutes. the setting of these dials is fairly easy once you understand the purpose. on the side of the watch there are two buttons(one top and one bottom) with a setting wheel in the center. When in use the top button starts and stops the stopwatch and the bottom button resets the counters. To set the watch simply pull the center wheel away from the watch all the way(2 clicks) set your minute hand and hour hand and then tap the bottom button repeatedly until the small dials all line up straight up. once that is done push the center wheel button halfway into the watch or one click to set the date. then simply push the wheel the rest of the way in and voila!!! hope this answers some questions

Please clarify use of the 3 smaller dials and how the hands to each are set and reset


The small bottom dial is seconds counter and there is no option to set or reset it as it is part of the main gear train - it just counts the seconds. Top right dial is 1/10 seconds counter and runs only when the chronograph function is engaged. One full circle indicates 1 second. Top left dial is 30 minutes counter and runs only when the chronograph function is engaged. One full circle indicates 30 minutes, two circles = 1 hour. The big centre seconds hand is actually Chronograph hand and runs only when the chrono function is engaged. So, the chronograph hand and two top dials works all together when chrono function is engaged. To start chrono: push upper button once. To stop chrono: push upper button again (once). To return all hands to zero: push lower button once. There is another option: if you already stopped chrono by pushing upper button, but want to continue counting without returning hands to zero, push the upper button once more and the counting will start from the point where it stopped. You can repeat this as many as you wish - it will count on and on, till you will stop it and reset to zero. Fine tuning of chrono hands can be made by pulling the crown half way out and while leaving in this position pushing and holding one of the push buttons (which one - depends on movement caliber). Watch has an tachymeter function as well (big inner ring). Learn how to use it by browsing through my Tips and Tricks- it is explained there. Rate me, please.

Curtis and Co. Big Time 3 zone watch w/ temp gauge. What does the stem positioned at aprox 10 O'clock control? It is near the temp guage but does not seem to control anything.


Crown(stem) at 10 O'clock has air inlet for temperature, does not move. Crown at 8 O'clock is for setting 3rd time zone next to it. The two buttons on the right of the case, above and below, set 2nd time zone which is at the 6 O'clock position of the large dial. To set #2 push top button till min. hand moves 1 min., then push bottom button to move 1 min each time or hold for rapid movement. Large crown sets date and large dial. Unscrew it (counterclockwise) then pull out to first click, then set date turning crown clockwise, continue to pull out till 3rd click which is where you set the time on the large dial.

I have a Victorinox ST1500. Since fitting a new battery when I reset the dials they no longer go back to the zero/12oclock position.


I can find no manual for this watch, so can only offer a general solution. With this type of watch there is usually a means of setting the dials to 'home' position. Reset the dials, then pull out the crown (this may have 1 or 2 different positions) and try pressing each of the top and bottom buttons and see if the 'dials' move. Sometimes, some are set with the crown in one position and others when it is in another position. Trial and error should allow you to set the dials to home position. Once you've done that, press the crown back in and retry the stopwatch.

I have a seiko chonograph couturo alarm. 100m


Many of the Seiko Chronographs have the same setting options (mine is the lightweight "Titanium Sports").

First off, the alarm dial must show the same time as the actual main dial. If not you must adjust this first.

Pull the knob at number 4 position on the watch face out, until you feel two distinct notches/clicks (around 0.5mm travel) and the alarm will make a shrill buzzing for about 1 second.

Now turn the #4 knob to move the small alarm dial at the #6, to be the same as the actual time displayed on the main face, and press the #4 knob fully back in. This sets the alarm and the main time to the same ....er....time. You do not need to do this again, unless you adjust for daylight saving times during summer/winter.

Now you can set the alarm chime point.

Pull the #4 knob out again, but just one click. You should hear one ping from the alarm. Now press the button at #8 position. It will move the small alarm hands by 1 minute intervals, and if you keep it held in, the dial spins around quickly. This allows you to adjust the time the alarm will chime.

When you've got the alarm time and it's chime point set, leave the #4 knob at one click out.

If you wish to switch the alarm off simply press the #4 knob back in, and the alarm dial will spin around to the same time as the main dial.To re-enable the alarm pull the #4 out one click again. It's quite simple once you get the hang of it.

My analog stopwatch needle at 11 instead of 12o'clock


The procedure for the Classima Chronograph watch is different. You need to pull the dial all the way out, press on both buttons and hold for 5 sec, until the seconds dial makes a full cirlce (signalling that the chronograph is now ready for manual reset, then press the button on 2 o'clock until the seconds dial reaches the 12 o'clock position, then press button at 4 o'clock, to transfer control to the 1/10 dial, press button at 2 o'clock again a number of times until it resets to 0, then press 2 o'clock dial again to transfer control to the little hours dial, and press 4 o'clock button number of times until you reset this one to 0 too. Now just push back the dial crown to original position to close the operation. Viola

What are the 3 inner dials for? How do I set them?


one of them is the seconds hand of your watch, this sub dial will keep on moving even if the watch is not used as a stop watch. the other 2 sub dials are for the stop watch function. one is for tracking the minutes and the other is for hours. the big seconds hand will only work if you use the stop watch function. you can reset your stop watch to zero by pressing the pusher located at the 4 o,clock location of your watch.

Fossil ch 2470 watch. I have no idea what the extra little dials are for on the face and how to set them. Please help


The dials are part of a Chronograph (stop watch) I assume there is a second, minute, and maybe a date function. Usually the large second hand is part of the stop watch on only moves when you start the stopwatch (top right button) push again to stop and reset back too zero is the bottom button. Usually to set or zero out those dials pull out the crown to the first click (also sets date) then push the top button to set the seconds (big hand) and the bottom button to set the other. sometimes you may need to pull the crown out to the second click (also sets hour and minutes) to set add'l dials. This is generally how you set most chronograph watches the button you push and what moves may be different.
