One of the must useful functions available on the Citizen's Eco-Drive watch is the alarm feature, which allows two alarms to be set for different times. This article uses Citizen's E860 movement calibre as an example; your watch might be similar. If it is not, please consult the Citizen website to learn more about your particular model.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Turn the crown to set the mode to Alarm 1 or Alarm 2. The crown of the watch is the turning button located by the 3 o'clock marker on the watch face. The mode hand is located in the small bottom dial near the 6 o'clock time marker on the watch face. Alarm 1 is designated by the AL-1 abbreviation, while Alarm 2 is designated by the AL-2 abbreviation.

  2. 2

    Gently pull the crown out as far as it will go. This puts the crown into the alarm setting position and automatically turns on the alarm setting.

  3. 3

    Turn the crown to set the alarm time. Moving the crown to the right turns the hour hand and minute hand clockwise; moving the crown to the left turns them in the opposite direction. Use the 24-hour hand, located in the 24-hour face between the 10 o'clock and 11 o'clock markers on the watch face, to differentiate between an AM or PM alarm setting.

  4. 4

    Turn the alarm setting on and off by pressing the A button, located above the crown, while the crown is pulled out into the alarm mode.

  5. 5

    Stop the sound of the alarm by pressing either the A button or the B button, the latter of which is located below the crown.

Tips and warnings

  • Citizen carries many Eco-Drive watches, so settings and instructions vary. For more detailed instructions tailored to your particular model, please visit the Citizen website for a PDF of the instruction manual. You will need the movement calibre number for your watch; look for it on the back.
  • Be gentle when pulling out the crown. Don't force it, as this could damage or even break your watch.
