Caring for your solar powered watch

  • To activate the watch, press and hold the button in the two o'clock position for approximately five seconds. The hands will spin to match the internal timekeeping and will stop once they have reached the correct time. This may take up to seven minutes if the last time set is just before the 10 o'clock position.
