Time Adjustment

When adjusting the time, there are different settings that need to be adjusted depending on the situation of your watch.
If you are having trouble adjusting the time, we recommend trying the operations listed in this guide before considering repair or making an inquiry.

Please check your watch's module number

Operation Guide
Please check that your watch's module number appears in the list below before operation.
*The module number is a 4-digit (or 3-digit) number marked on the back cover of your watch. Please check the number in a square in the center or around the edge of the back cover.

For models other than those listed above, please check the user manual.
*When checking the user manual, please try the steps in "Time Adjustment Points" below.
