Now – How to Set It?
On the rear you’ll find two buttons:
· one more in the middle, let’s call it “A” as seen in the AM imprint,
· one more towards the bracelet, on the outside, named “M”.
• A is to change mode
• M is to set details
You can set the watch to display
· hour and minute, with “Hello” blinking every second
· month and day (month on top, bigger than day, not very sensible), without any “Hello”
· changing between hour—minute and month—day
· just the current second (constant “Hello”, second below)
There must be 24 hour versions available, but I haven’t seen any. And sorry: You cannot switch an AM-PM-watch to display 24 hours.
To set the display mode
• press M
» you get the seconds-only mode
• press M
» you get the hour–minute mode with blinking “Hello”
• press M
» you see month and day for a short time, then hour and minute (not very practical)
• press A
» you get the changing mode between time and date
To set the clock
• press A twice (once: month and day are displayed for a short time)
» you see the month (large, top number),
· press M to advance the month by one from 1—12
• press A
» you see the day of the month (small),
· press M to set to 1—31
• press A
» you see the hour, large, on top, “Hello” blinks, and a small A or P (for AM or PM) below
· press M until both the hour and the part of day (AM or PM) are right. Setting the right part of day is important for the correct date function!
• press A
» you see the minute
· press M
» to set the minute from 00—59
• press A to end the setting process
PS: Before I forget – It is not recommended to set the clock while under water …
To change the battery
The battery is a SR6265W, often named 377 (see cross reference). That’s a round silver oxide cell, diameter 6.8 mm, height 2.6 mm, for a nominal 1.55 V. To change it, take out the clockworks – as seen in the picture – and continue by carefully unscrewing the four screws. Before you remove the old battery (which should last a year or more), remember the way it’s in there (+ und - should not be mixed up).
In the picture at the right you see the opened “clockworks”: to the left the cover with the black rubber sealing, at the right the fully operative watch with a capacitor (I think to buffer the DC voltage), the battery and the two contact fields for the buttons. You can bridge them with a metallic tool like a screwdriver and thus activate the buttons. Normally the two black rubber pins will do that when pressed. Their black side, visible in the picture, is electrically conductive.
Good luck. Let me know if this was useful.Fritz Jörn Further tips (mostly German)
