Activating/Deactivating Hourly Chime

1. From "Normal Time Mode", press and hold "D" (Alarm) and
at the same time press "C" (Date)  once. Hourly chime symbol,
( a house shape) appears in "chime" windows to indicate
the hourly chime will beep every hour.

Activatin/Deactivating Alarm

2. With "D" (Alarm) still pressed, press "C" (Date) again. Alarm symbol
( a clock shape with waves above it) appears in the
upper right to indicate the 24 hour alarm is now activated.

[I assume this "toggles" between off and on states,
so performing it again should turn off the alarm]

Message from Dean

Just a note to say "thanks" for the instructions on setting up my watch. It came without instructions and when it got set to 24 hour format instead of 12 hour, it drove me crazy trying to set it back. My watch is a WR165 (it has an EL button below the display, so I'm guessing it's an Eclipse, but that's just a guess) and the buttons are a little different that the one you've diagramed out. (The light and mode buttons are reversed). Using your instructions as a guide, I found out that if you hold down the alarm button (D) and press the mode button (A) the format changes from 12 to 24 hour.
