Who makes this watch and how do I operate it

#1 Post by hank » Wed Aug 01, 2018 2:59 pm

Hello All and thanks for letting me on this forum

This watch was picked up at a garage sale

I cannot see who makes this watch and what model it is so I can download the users manual

There is no identification anywhere that I can see

Thanks

My guess is a modern Chinese bargain watch. Setting and operating will be coordinated by the buttons located on the side of the case.
One will be a MODE switch, one will be a SET switch. Pulling out the crow may also be part of how the various functions are selected as well.

Think of it as a puzzle you have to solve or maybe the reason it was sold a garage sale!

Is there some kind of general owners manual for this kind of watch?

no. but they all follow a logical pattern. select "mode" - 'increment" - "set" - "repeat" - or some such order as that.
example: date, day, hours, minutes or some such sequence.

If you really want a challenge, try setting a Casio G-Shock. Stick with a classic windup with no date or day feature.
