The time on these watches has to be first properly referenced to UTC. I do not have the instruction book for your watch or even have a clue to the model number since you did not put any model number. There are several dozen Eco Drive models in each of the Citizen and Casio, and other type watches that are solar powered.

I have several types of Sky Hawk watches in the Citizen, and similar ones in the Casio. Check your instruction manual about how to set the UTC time, and how to set the offset time for your location. Once properly set up your watch should stay on time. If you have the radio receiver in your watch for the auto time setting, once the watch is set up properly it will maintain proper time all the time.

Leave your watch on window sill (sunshine must be plenty) for a week. If the watch will not keep charge after that, visit your closest watch repair shop and ask to replace capacitor. Rate me, plz.

Dpfellside@hotmail.co.ukwhat is actually meant by daylight saving time. my Citizen watch always indicates this setting is off (I am in U.K.)


Daylight savings time is primarily an USA thing. We set our clocks ahead every Spring in March and hour and back an hour in the fall. The idea was invented by Ben Franklin centuries ago to save energy and it is still done with the same idea in mind. Read elsewhere to see how it saves energy, debatable. Not all part of the country observe DST. Just turn it off and you should be fine. You may need to correct the time.

When we set the alarm on the watch we cannot get the clock back to tell the proper time it stays on the time of the alarm and so we are unable to see the proper time


After the alarm has been set, press button B (lower right) to turn the alarm ON or OFF and the press the crown back to the normal running position (i.e. next to the case).

When you do this, the time should reset itself to your local time.

Citizen Skyhawk SMT date?


You've gotta go to the set setting, one click out on the knob and cycle through all the timezones using the B button (the lower one) to change all the settings to OF (for winter) or ON (for summer time). According to their website FAQ, they can't determine when daylight savings time goes into effect for all the different time zones so there is no automatic changeover from SMT to normal and back again. Disappointing, I know. I just spent half an hour going through their website looking for some master switchover as well.

I have a wacky wake up timex alarm clock and can't set it to correspond with daylight savings.


You press and hold down the time set button...once the time starts to flash you use the "fwd" or "rev" buttons to change the time to what you want it set to. The alarm is set the same way...just press and hold the alarm set button until the time flashes. :)

Echo drive skyhawk,My watch's time zone is always one hour behind


You posted this in January, which is not during daylight savings time. The SMT setting doesn't turn on automatic DST switching for a particular timezone; rather, it is a manual override to adjust timezones to DST when it is actually active. There is no automatic DST adjustment for this watch (according to their FAQ). Turn SMT to OF for all timezones during winter months, and ON for applicable timezones during SuMmer Time (SMT).
