Question about Citizen Skyhawk Eco-Drive JR306059F Wrist Watch

# Analog clock not in sync with digital clock

My analog watch is currently 5 minutes faster than my digital clock Example: I live in Seattle. The Seattle digital clock shows 12:04pm. However, the analog watch hands show 12:09pm. My battery level indicator presently shows 2 out of 3 bars. Is this due to a low battery?

This problem may be due to your analog hands being improperly zeroed. To find out, try this: 1. Put the watch in chronograph mode by rotating the crowon in its normal position to "chr" 2. Pull out the crown two clicks. This should cause all of the hands to point to zero. If you do this and your minute hand points to 1 o'clock, or five minutes, you will know that this is the problem. If this is the problem, you can can correct it by zeroing the hands as follows: 1. Put the watch in chronograph mode by rotating the crowon in its normal position to "chr" 2. Pull out the crown two clicks. This should cause all of the hands to point to zero, or close to it. You should also notice the letters "HR" in the lefthand digital display. This allows you to move the hour hand by rotating the crown. If the hour hand is not pointing at 12 o'clock, rotate it so that it does. 3. Push the top button once. The letters "MIN" should appear in the lefthand digital display. This allows you to move the minute hand on the large dial, and the minute and hour hands on the small UTC dial. Rotate the crown so that the minute hand points directly to 12 o'clock. 4. Push the top button again. The letters "SEC" should appear in the lefthand digital display. Rotate the crown to point the second hand directly at 12 o'clock. 5. Push the crown back into its normal position. Set the digiatl time and date in your tie zone, and your analog hands should match the digital read-out. If the zeroing of the hands is not the problem, I don't know what is wrong with the watch.

I have a watch(found) and need to know what type of watch it is and makes it, the initials of the manufacturer is VS(WRITTEN ON TOP OF THE OTHER LETTER), the part/model # is F-IAFGI, it uses 377 battery,probably 2-377 batteries,I need what VS stands for and a picture or description of the battery, please.

Thank you SO much. Even at the Citizen website their instructions do not tell you how to sync up the analog and digital time INCLUDING the second hand. This is important to me. I like everything to match. Big help. "Zeroing the analog hands", I gotta remember that one.

howie 50... U are a genius Sir. My Sailhawk was suffering exactly the same 'out of sync' digi VS analog issue by around 4 minutes. And your fix... simply fixed it! It was driving me crazy! My sad old eyes can no longer read the (tiny) digi display so it was all hands for me.. and they were annoyingly out of time. All fixed now thank you thank you thank you (And hey Citizen, how about sending howie 50 a brand new watch for his trouble... and including his 'fix' in your manual.) Cheers from Mark - QLD Australia

### Setting the hands on this watch

press your "mode" button 5 times until it says on lower display "H-SET". Then press the "adjust" button until it beeps.

Now hold the "forward" button and the minute hand is moving.

Enjoy :o))))
