    For lack of a better manual (the manual came with the watch, but it is so tiny, you probably didn't recognize it as such...), I shall attempt to write down the usage of the buttons and how to set the 'Bold Chronograph' Elgin watch from Avon.

    First there are 4 buttons, because they have various functions, for the sake of simplicity, I will refer to them as LU (left upper), RU (right upper), LL(left lower, and RL (Right lower) buttons, this is as the watch is worn, with the 12 facing away from the user.

    1. To set the time: Press the LL button 3 times, and the upper circle (seconds) will flash the number being displayed. Press LR button until minutes are displayed flashing, then press UR button until proper minute is showing. When proper minutes are set, push LR button 1 time, and hours should flash. Push UR button until proper hour is displayed. NOTE: when cycling through the hours, watch will first run 1-12am, then 1-12pm, THEN 1-24 hours, so be aware of this if you are in 24 hour mode and you wish to change to 12 hour mode.

    Press LR button 1 time after proper hour is displayed, and date will flash in center circle, press UR button until proper date is shown, then press LR button once again to cause month to flash in bottom circle. Press UR button until proper month is displayed, then press LR button once, and black bar will flash in upper circle (this is the day of week indicator, if you look very closely at circle of face surrounding this circle, you will see (from 12o'clock positon clockwise) Mon, Tu, Sa, Fr, Th, We, and Su, push UR until proper bar for proper day of week is flashing. Then press LR button once, and corrct time, (hours, minutes, seconds and day of week) should be displayed, with seconds (top circle) flashing. Pushing UR will reset seconds (ie for co-ordinating watches), or pressing LL will exit watch setting function,

    2. To set alarm: press LL 2 times, watch will display 'A' in top circle, and bottom circle will flash, press UR until desired hour is displayed, NOTE: changing alarm time will automatically arm the alarm function, I will cover arming/disarming alarm later... once desired hour is displayed press LR once and minutes will flash, press
    UR until desired minutes are displayed, Press LL button, and watch will return to normal operation, however; you will note black bar at bottom of middle circle, this indicates that alarm is armed, to disarm alarm, press and hold LR, and press UR while holding LR and alarm function will toggle from armed to disarmed, do same to activate alarm.

    3. Chronograph function: Press LL once and 00 will show in all 3 windows, press UR to start/stop chronograph, pressing UR will stop chronograph and 'pause' counting, pressing UR again will resume counting where it was when UR was pressed prior.

    If chronograph is running and LR button is pressed, display stops, but counting continues (ie. lap timer), so that when LR is pressed again, display will resume with display of 'unpaused' count.

    When UR is pressed, and LR is pressed thereafter, chronograph will reset to all 0's, from there, pressing UR will restart counting, or pressing LL button will return watch to normal display funciton.

    I have heard rumors that the watch can be set to display the date by default in the digital displays, but from my experimentation, I would guess this person has gone through the 'time setting' steps above until they came to 'setting the day of the week', and rather than continue from there, which resets the watch to normal display, they leave the watch displaying the date, with the day of the week flashing. I would not recommend this, as it prevents you from using the other functions of the watch properly, and it probably runs the battery low unneccesarily quickly.

Currently watches with the Elgin name are manufactured by M. Z. Berger & Co. I found the company web site and found information regarding how to obtain instructions for an Elgin brand watch the company manufactured.

Setting chimes and time for elgin e77


I thought I had some instructions on that Elgin clock, but it was for a mechanical wind up unit. There were many different models of these programmable clocks manufactured and the instructions differed. And they are just not readily available. I received a sports watch in a trade (with no instructions)and after 3 months I am still trying to determine how to program it!

It might be that the "H" stands for hours and the "S" for set. So how do we set the minutes? I will pose this question to my Internet Clocksmiths Group and see if anyone knows. If I do receive some instructions, I will get back with you.

If you are able to, send it back where you got it, most companuies have 30day return policies...if its been longer take it to a reputable jeweler or watchmaker and have the battery replaced...sometimes watches have been sitting in a warehouse for awhile before they are sold and the batteries have run down.
