How to Reset a Citizen Blue Angels Watch

Updated February 21, 2017

A Citizen Skyhawk Blue Angels watch consists of stainless steel, mineral glass and a linked wrist strap containing a push-button safety buckle. The watch features a four-year power reserve, a 30-city world time clock, coordinated universal time (UTC), a calendar, dual time displays, three alarms and a chronograph. The watch also supports split-countdown timing up to 99 minutes. If the Blue Angels watch behaves irregularly or you'd like to start from scratch, you might wish to reset it.

Pull the "Crown" knob in the centre of the right edge of the Citizen Blue Angels watch out to the first position. Turn the knob to align the mode hand with "CHR" (chronograph mode).

Pull the "Crown" knob out farther to its second position. The hands start to rotate quickly.

Push the "A" button on the lower-right edge of the Blue Angels watch and "B" button on the upper-right edge of the watch in unison after the hands stop rotating. The digital display and lights turn on after you remove your fingers from A and B. A beep sounds, the hands move in both directions and the watch moves into reference position checking status.

Pull the "Crown" knob out to the first position to check the reference position and twist it to align with "CHR." Pull the "Crown" knob out farther to the second position. The hands move quickly and stop at the set the reference position. The correct reference positions include a charge level indicator setting of "EUR"; a UTC hour and minute hand reading of "12:00"; the hour, minute and second hands at 12:00 and the 24-hour hand at 12:00.

Move the "Crown" knob to the first position, if the reset reference positions are incorrect. Align the knob with "CHR."

Pull the "Crown" knob out farther to the second position. The hands move quickly, stopping at "12:00," which is the reference point.

Hold down the "B" button for two seconds, until "CHA" flashes on the display. Twist the "Crown" knob to align the charge level indicator to the centre of "EUR."

Push the "B" button to display "UTC," and adjust the UTC hour and minute hands. Twist the "Crown" knob to align the hour and minute hands with "12:00." Press the "A" button during this time to move the minute hand back three minutes to make the "UTC" hands more visible. After adjustment, press the "A" button to move the minute hand back to its original position.

Push the "B" button to display "HR" and adjust the hour hand. Twist the "Crown" knob to line up the hour and minute hands with "12:00."

Push the "B" button to display "MIN" and adjust the minute hand. Twist the "Crown" knob to line up the minute hand with "12:00."

Press the "B" button for two seconds to save the settings.
