by Megan Mattingly-Arthur

The Citizen Watch Company is one of the world's largest producers of wrist watches for men and women. Part of Citizen's Eco-Drive line of watches, the Citizen Promaster is a solar-powered watch that can be recharged in both natural or artificial light. With added features like a chronograph and alarm, the Citizen Promaster is a sophisticated watch that is simple to set and use.

Set Time and Date

Press the bottom left button on your Citizen Promaster watch to access the Time and Date mode.

Step 2

Locate the crown on the right side of your Citizen Promaster. Pull the crown out to the first position.

Step 4

Press the bottom left button on your watch to advance the flashing to the Daylight Savings Time screen. Turn the Daylight Savings Time feature "On" or "Off" by pressing the bottom right button on your Citizen Promaster watch.

Step 5

Advance the flashing to the seconds-place digits on your Citizen Promaster by pressing the bottom left button. Press the bottom right button to set the seconds on your watch to "00."

Tips

  • The alarm-setting process for your Citizen Promaster watch is similar to the process used to set the time and date. Access the Alarm mode on your watch by pressing the bottom left button until "AL" is displayed. Use the watch's bottom left button to advance the flashing and the buttons on the right side of the watch to set the alarm to the desired time.

Warnings

  • If your Citizen Promaster watch has stopped, charge it in outdoor natural light for at least seven hours before attempting to adjust its settings.
