The Citizen Skyhawk is a radio-controlled watch that is appropriate for dressy or casual attire. The Skyhawk is a highly technological device whose operations heavily rely on the signals they receive from radio transmitters in the United States, Japan or Europe. These radio signals allow your watch to receive automatic time updates, eliminating the need for you to manually set the date or time under normal circumstances. The Citizen Skyhawk also receives a steady charge from light sources.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Remove the watch from your wrist.

  2. 2

    Face the 9 o'clock side of the watch towards a window. The 9 o'clock side of the watch is the side where the number 9 is located on the watch's display.

  3. 3

    Lay the watch on a flat, stable surface. The Citizen Skyhawk receives automatic signal updates at 2 a.m., 3 a.m. or 4 a.m., depending on when the watch is first able to successfully receive the signal.

  4. 4

    Wait between two to 15 minutes for the watch to fully receive the signal. The second hand's movements will change from rapid movements to regular movements once the signal reception has finished.

  1. 1

    Pull out the crown once so that it is in position one. Position one is the mode switching position.

  2. 2

    Turn the crown until the mode hand is on "CHR," indicating that the Skyhawk is in chronograph mode.

  3. 3

    Push the crown in once. It should now be back in its original position.

  4. 4

    Push the "B" button once to start the chronograph. If you have the Skyhawk in your hand and it is facing you, the "B" button is located on the top right side of the watch.

  5. 5

    Push the "B" button once to stop the chronograph.

  6. 6

    Push "A," the lower right button, after stopping the chronograph to reset the chronograph.

Tips and warnings

  • You will hear an audible sound when starting and stopping the chronograph.
  • Do not use the watch until it has received a full charge from a light source.
