Seiko H449 Instructions

Updated February 21, 2017

Seiko's H449 is a classic '80s-styled quartz display wrist watch. The dressy timepiece was released in 1986 and features a dual display with a three-hand analogue clock face, and a liquid crystal readout strip below the clock face for sundry time and date items like alarm and stopwatch. The loss/gain is less than 10 seconds a month. Using the watch involves adjusting the analogue function with a crown and making changes to the digital function with buttons and crown.

Pull the crown out to the second stop and watch for the second hand to stop moving. Turn the crown to adjust the time on the analogue clock face. The crown can be turned either clockwise or counter-clockwise without damage to the H449. Push the crown back in.

Press the button repeatedly on the side of the Seiko near the "8" mark on the clock face. The liquid crystal display will toggle between the "Alarm I" display, "Alarm II," "Stopwatch," "Day and Date" and "Month and Date." Toggle to one of the options, like "Day and Date," but not "Stopwatch."

Pull the crown out to the first stop and rotate the crown clockwise or counter-clockwise to change the settings. Turning the crown will move between days of the week, for example. Follow the same procedure for other functions like "Alarm I," "Alarm II" and "Month and Date."

Choose "Stopwatch" and press the button adjacent to the "10" mark on the face to start, stop and reset the stopwatch.
