Battery Replacement
Dear Customer
Thank you for purchasing the Tavistock & Jones Radio Controlled Talking Watch.
The Tavistock & Jones radio controlled, multi-band atomic watch picks up the official
time and date signals from radio transmitters across the UK, Europe, Japan and
North America, ensuring it’s always accurate to the correct local time. It never needs
setting; however it can also be adjusted manually for countries with no signal. Plus it
automatically adjusts for British summer and winter time without you having to touch it.
Quick Start
Your Radio Controlled Talking Watch will arrive with the batteries in ‘sleep mode’.
Radio
In order to ‘wake up the watch’ simply press either the button next to 2 o’clock (A)
controlled
talking
or the button next to 4 o’clock (B) for around 3 seconds or until the hands start to
watch with
spin. The hour and minute hands will spin round until they reach the correct time.
luminous
Setting to BST (British Summer Time)
hands
If the time is not correct once the hands have stopped spinning simply leave
the watch by a window ledge or an area where it will receive the strongest,
uninterrupted signal. The watch is programmed to update and transmit a time check at 3am every day.
Leaving the watch by a window and in a position where the back of the watch will receive the best
signal (see section on Watch Positioning) the time will re-set itself to the correct BST and thus tell the
correct time.
Unfortunately until the watch re-sets itself at 3am it will show the incorrect time. This is perfectly normal
and the watch is not broken or damaged, it is how radio controlled wacthes are designed. By the time
you wake up the next morning the watch will show the correct time.
Automatic Time Setting
Your Radio Controlled Talking Watch recalls the selected atomic clock signal automatically at 03:00AM
every morning. After receiving a signal it will show the official local time on the watch. Everything is done
automatically. However, your watch can also be manually set (see Set Country with manual
signal settings).
At night position the watch face down on a flat surface near a window (please see the diagram
opposite). The signal will be updated at 03:00AM.
If your watch is unable to make contact with the radio signal, it will continue to function in the same way
as a standard watch. The time will then be corrected whenyour watch receives an updated signal.
PLEASE NOTE: Make sure the overnight position for the watch is at least six feet away from any
household electrical appliances as they could cause interference with the signal. Never let metal
(including the metal clasp touch the case back as may affect the signal.
The watch must be set to the correct country before it can receive a signal (please follow Set Country
with automatic time settings).
The watch has stopped at 12 o’clock and there is no talking function - when the battery is low the
watch hands will stop and the talking function will stop altogether. It is now time to change the battery
according to the “BATTERY REPLACEMENT” procedures.
This watch uses a CR2032 type battery, trained jewellers or watch specialists should fit new batteries to
avoid any damage to the watch.
• Open the watch at the back. Unscrew the back cover and carefully remove, make sure you do
not lose this as it acts as a waterproof seal.
•
Pick up the battery spring on the right.
•
Take out the battery and insert a new one (noting the polarity”+” is up).
•
Now push the battery spring down.
Before you put the waterproof seal on again, make sure
12
the waterproof seal is correctly in place by aligning the
numbers printed on the case-back with the numbers on
the face (see diagram on the next page).

The watch will not work after a battery is replaced until
the following has been done.
Back
Front
1. After replacing the battery push the stop / rest dial
in so the second hand begins to move as normal..
2. Wait until the second hand stops at precisely 12 o’clock and pull out the stop / rest dial immediately
so that the second hand stops on the 12 o’clock position.
3. Using the stop/reset button position the hour and minute hands to 12 o’clock. Now all hands should
be set to 12:00:00.
4. Press and hold the A button (next to 2 o’clock) for 5 seconds and then push the stop / reset dial in
5. Place your watch near a window to get a radio signal. The watch will start to update its first signal. It
will continue updating over the next 24 hours if the first signal reception is not successful. After receiving
a valid time signal, and the hands move on to the correct time. Please allow up to 15 minutes for the
watch to synchronise with a local radio signal.
PLEASE NOTE: If the watch does not show you the right time after battery replacement, please reset
your watch by following the Set Country (with automatic time settings) instructions.
PROCEDURE IF APPEARS FAULTY
1. Check correct polarity of battery. Select a location to place your RC clock where it will be at least
six feet away from a TV, computer, air conditioning unit, or other household electrical appliances. The
optimum location is near a window.
2. Remove the battery and start again.
3. There is a breakdown at the transmitter. Wait for a few hours, then repeat the time setting
procedure. Further information about the UK’s radio transmitter can be found at:
http://www.npl.co.uk/science-technology/time-frequency/products-and-services/time/msf-radio-timesignal
PLEASE NOTE: Your watch has been fitted with a test demonstration battery at the factory. This may
need replacing or be running low when you start to use the watch. The battery life will depend on how
often you use the talking function. Please follow the Battery Replacement instructions in this manual.

4. Press the B button to confirm your selection once the watch has said the local signal / reception
you require.
• After the confirmation, the watch will run to the local time of the country / signal you have selected.
• Please wait until the watch hands stop spinning fast and resume to normal running.
• During “British Summer Time” or “Daylight Saving Time” you may find the time is incorrect by
one hour. This will be corrected after a local signal / reception has been updated. The watch will
synchronise with the local atomic clock automatically at 03:00AM so you have to make sure that
the right country has been set or the watch will not be able to pick the local signal.
• Please allow up to 15 minutes for the watch to successfully pick up the local signal you have
requested. If the signal has not picked up using the automatic time settings please follow the next
set of instructions for the manual signal settings.
Set Daily Alarm (with automatic time settings)
The watch must be set to the correct country / signal before can proceed with the following manual
signal settings (see the previous set of instructions “Set Country with automatic time settings”).

signal. The watch can take up to 15 minutes to synchronise with the radio signal. Once the radio
signal has been found the watch will show the time again.
4. Press the A button 3 times after the watch has resumed to normal running in order to check the
reception status.
If the reception / update was successful the watch will say “Country name” followed by “Time Updated”.
If the reception failed the watch will say”Country name” follow by “Time Not Updated”. If this happens
please try repeating the process again. If the repeated process is still unsuccessful then we suggest
you leave it on a window ledge or a place where it will pick up an interrupted radio signal and the watch
will then re-calibrate to the correct time at 03:00am the following day.
It is possible that having followed the manual and automatic Set Country instructions that the time is still
incorrect but when you press the A button (next to 2 o’clock) it says the correct time. Although this is not
correct as the time shown on the clock face is different to what the watch says the watch it is however
not broken or damaged. In order to re-correct this simply follow the steps below:
1.Unscrew (anti-clockwise) but do not pull out the stop / reset dial (in-between the A and B button).
The second hand must still be moving correctly.
2.Wait until the second hand stops at 12 o’clock exactly and immediately pull out the stop / reset dial
so that the second hand stops at 12 o’clock position.

TROUBLESHOOTING
Time Signal (not received)
This may be due to:
•
Being outside of the UK, Germany, USA and Japan (60 KHz) signal area
•
Being in a built up area •
Metal objects blocking the radio signal
•
Interference by computer monitor or TV
Ensure that the watch is left by a window, as this gives the best reception, you may have to try different
windows in the house to see which is best. You can test this using reception status test described
earlier. Please note that reception is always better at night.
If your watch is unable to make contact with the radio signal, it will continue to function in the same way
as a standard watch. The time will then be corrected the next time your watch receives the time signal.
Calibration
Your watch is a very delicate and precise instrument. Although uncommon, sometimes hard knocks or
vibrations can cause the hands to move irregularly and therefore display the incorrect time although
the internal clock is keeping an accurate time. You may notice this when the time announcement does
not match with the position of hands. Then you then need to reset the watch hands by the following
procedures.
Re-calibrate the watch hands:
1.Unscrew (anti-clockwise) but do not pull out the stop / reset dial (in-between the A and B button).
The second hand must still be moving correctly.
2.Wait until the second hand stops at 12 o’clock exactly and immediately pull out the stop / reset dial
so that the second hand stops at 12 o’clock position.
3.Position the hour and minute hands using the stop / reset dial so the hour, minute and second
hands now all point to 12 o’clock.
4. Press and hold the A button (next to 2 o’clock) for 5 seconds and then push the stop / reset dial in.
5.The watch will now spin to match the internal time and resume normal running. Please wait until
the clock face resumes to the correct time. You can now press the A button, the time on the clock
face and the internal voice settings will be correct.
