Setting the time and date
1. To change the hour (e.g. because of a change of time
zone), adjust the crown (A) from Operating Position 1
(P1) to Set Position 2 (P2) and turn in either direction
to display the correct time. This mode allows you to
change the hour and date without any loss of minutes
or seconds. The date changes each time the hour hand
passes midnight.
Please note: If the date is set between the hours of 9pm
and 1am, the date will not change correctly.
2. To set the time adjust the crown to Set Position 3 (P3).
This will stop the second hand. Turn in either direction
until the correct minutes are displayed.
3. After setting the correct date and time, push the
crown back to Operating Position 1 (P1). The second
hand will resume. At the end of each month you may be
required to change the date manually.
Please note: Whilst the crown is in Position 2 (P2) or
Position 3 (P3), the watch is not moisture resistant.
Chronograph operation
This chronograph watch features traditional watch
functions: hours and minutes, jumping seconds sub dial
at 6 o’clock (1) and date indicator (2), plus a stopwatch
measuring minutes, seconds and 1/10 second.
This watch is able to measure time with an accuracy
of 1/10 second. The watch’s movement is therefore
equipped with a small dial (3) indicating 1/10
second. This sub dial uses a line index with a total
of 10 subdivisions from ‘0.0’. 10 times 1/10 second
= 1 second.
The second counter
In the centre of the dial, apart from the hour and minute
hand, is another hand called the second counter.
This counter indicates the number of seconds in the
measuring period. The number of seconds is read on
the outer main dial indicated through the mid-line
index with a total of 60 divisions. 1 round for the second
counter = 1 minute. The minute counter
The other small dial (4) shows the number of minutes
in the measuring period. Each time the second counter
completes one rotation, the counter hand moves one
step forward equal to 1 minute. This sub dial uses a line
index with a total of 30 divisions. 1 round for the minute
counter = 1/2 hour.
Function: chronograph
All the functions of the chronograph are controlled
through the two push buttons: (A) and (B). Push button
(A) has two functions: (START) and (STOP). Push button
(B) also has two functions: (SPLIT) and (RESET).
When you need to measure a specific event, push
button (A) once. You will see the second counter
hand in the centre moving forward. The 1/10 second
counter hand stays at ‘0.0’, which is correct. A separate
component inside the watch movement keeps track
of the 1/10 second.

When the timed event is over, you must push button
(A) again. The chronograph hands stop and you can
read the result. Notice that the 1/10 second counter
hand rotates to display this value.
Function: reset
After you have read the time, the chronograph hands
must be returned to the default position. Push button
(B) and the hands will return to Position 0, also know as
zero position. The chronograph is now ready to time
another event.
Function: split
The movement has another important function
called (SPLIT), used for timing intermediate times
during an event.
Start the timer by pressing button (A). When you
reach the instant you wish to read an intermediate
time (without stopping the chronograph and only
‘freezing’ the time on the dial) push button (B). The 1/10
second counter hand is placed and the second counter
hand stops moving. You can now read the (SPLIT) time
result whilst the chronograph movement continues to
record the event.
When you have finished reading the (SPLIT) time,
push button (B). You will notice now that the hands
move at a faster rate for a short while until they have
caught up with the current timed event. Once this has
happened, they will continue to move as normal. You
may repeat the (SPLIT) function more than once in one
timed event. When the timed event has ended, press
button (A) as normal to read the total timed result then
return the chronograph hands to the zero position by
pressing button (B).
Setting the hands of the chronograph
After a battery change or if the function is affected
by a severe knock or exposure to a strong magnetic
field, the hands of the chronograph should be reset
to zero position.
Resetting the minute counter hand
1. Adjust the crown to Set Position 2 (P2).
2. By means of short, successive pushes on the
chronograph button (B), turn the minute counter hand
back to zero.
Resetting the second counter hand
and 1/10 second hand
1. Adjust the crown to Set Position 3 (P3).
2. By means of short, successive pushes on the
chronograph button (A), turn the second counter hand
back to zero.
3. Repeat this for the chronograph button (B), turning
the 1/10 second counter hand back to zero. Once all
chronograph hands are reset to zero position, push the
crown back to Operating Position 1 (P1).
Please note: DO NOT push the crown back to Operating
Position 1 (P1) until all chronograph hands have been
returned to zero position.
Please note: DO NOT keep the crown in Position 2 (P2)
for more than 20 minutes.
Watch care
Your Uniform Wares watch requires a certain amount of
care. The following guidelines will enable you to ensure
its reliability and protect its appearance over time.
Cleaning
Please use a clean, lint-free cloth with warm water
or, if required, a mild detergent diluted in water to
remove any dirt from the case. To clean the lens use
a clean chamois cloth. Avoid submerging the watch
case in water.
Battery
Your watch’s power source is a Swiss-made Renata cell
which has an estimated lifespan of 51 months. The life
of the battery will depend upon the frequency with
which you use the chronograph functions. When your
battery requires replacing, please refer to the Uniform
Wares website www.uniformwares.com/service for
information on battery replacement.
Water resistance
This watch is designed to withstand everyday use and
has a 5ATM water resistance rating. Exposure to high
humidity and light rain showers is acceptable. However,
you should avoid wearing the watch whilst showering,
swimming, diving or during any other activity where
it may be subjected to abnormal water pressures or
environments where abnormal heat and moisture are
present (e.g. saunas or hot tubs). This combination
may have a negative effect on the seals and gaskets
of the watch.
Condensation
If your watch experiences a sudden change in
temperature or pressure, a slight condensation may
appear under the sapphire glass. This mist should
disappear by itself and will not affect the functioning
of your watch. If the condensation persists, please
contact www.uniformwares.com/service.
