You need to reset your watch completely and to do that, you have to start from battery.
Extract watch battery completely and leave your watch without energy supply for an hour. This will erase any data kept in watch memory.
Then put the battery back in watch exactly the way it was and reset your watch using pushbuttons.

How to exchange leather straps for almost any watch brand


Most of the people are pretty sure that when their watch leather straps are worn out they have to replace them with new ones, made by exactly the same brand as their watch brand is. This is completely wrong. About 95% of all watch brand models can be fitted with leather straps from any watch strap producer without loosing brands identity. All you have to do is: 1. Release the strap from the watch; 2. Measure the width of the strap where the spring bar (pin) goes through and write it down or memorize it; 3. Undo the buckle/clasp; 4. Measure the width of strap in place where the buckle/clasp was fitted and write it down or memorize it; 5. Measure the length of the strap (both parts together) and write it down or memorize it. Now you have everything you need for strap replacement. Visit any shop selling leather straps or even find it on the internet. You will find thousands of different colours, patterns and leather variations. The choice is yours. Just one thing to remember: The strap you are buying must match all the measurements you took of your original strap. This is not difficult to match, as the watch straps usually are made to global standards. When you have your new strap delivered, just fit it to your watch and undo the buckle/clasp that came with it. Fit your old, original buckle/clasp on to the new strap and you are done. Most watch manufacturers impress, engrave or laser engrave their logos on buckles/clasps, not on the leather straps itself. So, when you fit the original buckle/clasp on brand new strap of different make, it becomes the original strap of the watch you own. And nobody knows that the strap is, for example, from Hong Kong, but watch is from Switzerland (except you, of course} as they look together as one nicely designed piece and the buckle/clasp works as the proof of identity. In case if your watch has some unusually shaped fixing for the strap, this shape can be easily cut in to the strap by modellers scalpel. At the very end I just want to remind to all readers: Watch straps sold under watch brand names are 2-10 times more expensive. In fact - they are not produced by watch manufacturers themselves, but in Italy, Germany, China and Hong Kong and then sent to watch manufacturers. Just because these straps were fitted to the watches and the buckles or clasps were added to them, these straps automatically becomes their brand straps and cost a lot, lot more. Hope it helps to save your hard earned money.

How to change original setting on citizen blue angel


Did you register the watch with Citizen UK? because they can give support, after you registered. I don't think they mind if you bought the watch outside the UK, as long as it is not on a list with stolen watches.

It's rarely possible to give any kind of definitive valuation without seeing a watch (pocket or wrist) in person, but it sounds like you have an inexpensive pocket watch that was probably made in the 1960s, less likely made in the 1970s or 1950s. The use of the term "antimagnetic" on the watch, as opposed to "17 jewels," suggests that the watch is powered by a 1-3 jewel pin lever movement, rather than a more expensive movement. These movements can keep quite good time, but they are not valued by watch collectors unless the rest of the watch is of compelling interest.

In terms of value, your pocket watch has more value as a piece of jewelry than as a vintage timepiece. Most watch collectors would not be particularly interested in your watch. In the United States, I've seen similar watches, in running condition, sell for $5-10 at vintage watch fairs. Around where I live (the Northeast), as a piece of jewelry, your watch may be worth twice that but not more. I cannot speak to pricing in other parts of the country or internationally.

I have an OCW-M 800. I have downloaded the manual from mfg. website and cannot seem to get it to set the time for EST correctly. THis watch cost me over $500.00 and is so complicated that I fear I have...


I am not American, so I am not familiar with the definition of "EST" or which of the four "city" settings is correct for you.

Having read the instructions I see that for America you have to select "USA" first and then the appropriate city, have you done this?. The list of four options covers 4 time zones, so you should be able to get the correct time for your area.

When I bought an atomic watch recently, I had to leave it overnight to catch the timekeeping signals. I see that you posted your question only 14 hours ago. How long have you had it. GIve your watch a day or so for it to latch on to the correct time.

Check that the "autoreceive" is "on".

Check that the daylight saving time (DST) is correctly set. The manuals indicate that some areas may not be using it?

Keep trying - it is nice to have a watch that is always correct!

I have purchased some cheap wrist watches from Hong Kong. They are the rubberised type with a digital display but have no instruction as to how to alter them. Can you help please?


mcdevito75 here, I'm figureing you have only one (1) button on your watches, some, even cheap digitals have two (2) buttons, one of which is ususlly for a light. Some have two (2) buttons, one says MODE the other says SET. For one button (1) digitals, This will usually say set, when you press this button you should see the display change, to month then press set agin to see date, press set again to go back to time of day. NOW!! look for a DIMPLE, an INDENTATION on the side of the watch fairly close to the other button, press this DIMPLE in with a tooth pick, pin or the point of a pen, this is your MODE, press once, see the display flash, now with the set button, set whatever display is flashing, press MODE again, set this next display, when all displays, Month, Day, Date and time of day, hour and minute are set, press MODE again to see steady display. when you press set now, you can see the corrected display, press the set button for each display you want to view until you come back to the time of day display. That"s it.

Broken galss


mcdevito75 here, helloarcus, look for a small watch repair shop in your area in Hong Kong you shouldn't have any problems getting a new glass (crystal) for your calvin Klein watch, However since you say the watch is new, contact Calvin Klien and let them know of the broken glass, see if it's on any kind of warranty, the paper work with your watch should have the contact info.
