Question about The Watches

1 Answer

What do you do if the two set buttons on the Dakota Radio-controlled Atomic Watch do not work properly after battery replacement?

After the battery was replaced, the sweep hands began to move, but the set buttons failed to function according to the directions. Without the set buttons working, the watch cannot be reset manually.

Purchase some contact cleaner either online or at an electronics store. Remove the back from the watch and then drip the contact cleaner onto the contact side of the set buttons inside the watch. Then depress the set buttons repeatedly to work in the solution. You may have to repeat a few times. By cleaning the contacts it is likely the set buttons will work again.

SOURCE: My watch hands don't move

The best way is to go back to the shop and ask for users manual or ask to set the watch.
If you still need any further advice- upload watch model, number, all the details e.t.c.

SOURCE: Large second hand not running, Stop Watch function?

Hey, it sounds like your watch is just fine! A nice watch to inherit.
The small second hand on the sub-dial is your normal second hand.
The large second hand is the second timer for your chronograph feature.
It should only move when you hit the side buttons. One of them (usually the top plunger/ button) will start the Chrono timer and then hitting it again will stop it. The bottom button should reset the hand to the 12 o'clock/ zero marker.
If the large hand is not functioning at all then there may be something wrong with the watch; perhaps the buttons are not making full contact within the watch or the hand may be stuck and need repair.
Hope this answers your questions. Post more questions if need be.
Congrats on your new watch.

If the problem started immediately after you dropped it, then the impact is likely to have damaged it and a trip top the dealer is unavoidable.

Whatever the cause of your problem it is best left to watch repairer to sort it out.

Weide wh1103 watch.hands stopped working.function buttons work ok.battery powered.hands move when turning winder button.


The Weide watches use springs for their electrical connectivity and I've found that they don't work very well. I had the same problem and after tinkering with all of the connections I came to the conclusion that they were built to not have the battery replaced.

My watch will work as a stopwatch but the time will not progress and I am not sure if it a battery or mechanism issue


Yes it is not a battery problem , you say the second hand remains static therefore I presume the other hand is moving ? if this is the case it might be because the second hand is not attached to the shaft properly although you say you can set the time and it will work for a short period and then fail it still might be the case which is a fairly simple job , hopefully it is not in the watch mechanism that causes it to not work .

How do I set my pod 535 watch after I have changed the batteries


Just tried this procedure to replace a watch battery in a POD 535 and did not work...my version of the watch might be different, all I am saying is it did not work with my watch.
The procedure that worked with my watch
When you have replaced the battery reset the watch by placing a small screw driver across the two recessed contact next to the lower battery clip. The digital display will reset and you will see four zero's flashing...if not press the winder button once, or reset the watch again. This process is to get all the hands at twelve O clock position...press and hold the top right hand button and the hands will start revolving...you can let go of the button once the hand are moving. Pressing the top button again will stop the hands and a short press will move the hands in small increments. Once the hands get close to 12 press then press the button once and then press the same button in short pulses to align all the hands on the 12 position. Wait a short time and the watch will find the time signal and both the digital display and hands will be aligned and showing the correct time.

Touch function is not working


I had the same issue. After installing the battery and trying to calibrate several times... to no avail.I tried pressing the T button, keeping it pressed down and then install the battery. It give you a mode or function setting ( I'm not sure what it means). i then press the T button and it cycles through these mode setting. I synchronized the hands and then was able to get the: altimeter, compass, meteo, date and time working. The temp, chrono still doesn't work.
I think getting all the functions to work, depends on the mode setting... but i don't know the correct setting.

Cant set the second hand to move


The "second" hand on this watch is not actually a 'sweep' second hand, as on other watches.
This is a timer dial. ["Stopwatch 1/5 Second Hand"]
To start/stop this, use the top button (Button "A").
To reset this dial to 12 O'clock, use Button "B", after first stopping it with Button "A".
The "second" hand is the small dial at the 9 O'clock position.
In actuality, you 'could' start this and just not stop it...  Then it would function as a "large second hand". That would be up to the owner. (it might use more battery power though... ?)

CAN'T SET TIME


I have an AW 150 watch. I looked everywhere for a solution to setting it. I found nothing. It appears that all types of this watch are hard to set. I happened upon the correct procedure for at least setting the watch.

My watch has 4 set buttons that you can push. 2 on each side. Hold the upper right hand button until something starts flashing on the watch. On mine it was the seconds. Then release the button. Now each time you push that button for a very short moment, the flashing part of the watch will progress through each area (minutes, hours, date, etc). When you get to the area you want to set/adjust, use the bottom right hand button to move up/forwards and the bottom left hand button to move down/backwards. When you have fixed one function push the upper right hand button to move to the next function you want to change and repeat the procedure. When you are done, hold the upper right hand button in until the watch quits flashing anywhere and then release the button. Your watch is no longer in the adjust mode. Hope this works for you. It drove me nuts until I figured it out.

Need instruction manuel for elgin fg010-007 sports watch


The movement in this Elgin is made by Citizen. After you change the battery, you need to reset the hands so that the watch functions properly. Select chronograph function with lower-right button. Then pull-out the same button. Push the upper left button to select the UTC, hour, and minute hands. Then use lower-left and upper-right buttons to make sure everything is aligned to 12:00 position. After setting the hands to 12:00, push in lower right button. Now you can set the time by selecting the SET using the lower right button. Pull out the same button and choose your time zone to set.
