How to change the time on a marathon watch

Marathon watches are known for their durability and functionality, making them popular for athletes and outdoors enthusiasts. In this blog post, we will discuss how to change the time on a Marathon watch.

Determine the type of movement

Before you begin changing the time on your Marathon watch, it’s important to determine the type of movement your watch has. Marathon watches can either have a quartz movement or a mechanical movement. The type of movement will determine the steps you need to take to change the time.

Find the crown

The crown, also known as the winding knob, is typically on the watch case’s side. You will use the part of the watch to set the time.

Set the time

Quartz Movement:

If your Marathon watch has a quartz movement, you can pull the crown out to the first position and turn it clockwise or counterclockwise to set the time. Once you set the time, push the crown back in to secure it.

Mechanical Movement:

If your Marathon watch has a mechanical movement, you must wind the crown to power the watch before you can set the time. To do this, turn the crown clockwise until it stops. Once the look is powered, you can pull the crown out to the first position and turn it to set the time. As with the quartz movement, push the crown back in to secure it in place once you are finished.

Set the date (if applicable)

Some Marathon watches also have a date feature, which can be set similarly to the time. Pull the crown out to the second position to set the date and turn it clockwise or counterclockwise until the correct date is displayed. Push the crown back in once the date is set to secure it in place.

Conclusion:

Changing the time on a Marathon watch is a relatively straightforward process. By following the steps outlined in this blog post, you can easily set the time on your watch, whether it has a quartz or mechanical movement. Always refer to the product documentation or contact the manufacturer with any questions.

FAQs:

How do I know if my Marathon watch has quartz or mechanical movements?

You can typically find this information in the product documentation that came with your watch or by contacting the manufacturer.

Can I set the time on my Marathon watch using the buttons on the side of the case?

This will depend on the specific model of your Marathon watch. Some models may allow you to set the time using the buttons, while others may only allow you to use the crown. Refer to the product documentation or contact the manufacturer for more information.

My Marathon watch is running slow/fast. How do I adjust the time to fix this?

To adjust the time on your Marathon watch to account for variations in the watch’s accuracy, you can use the crown to set the time to a reference time source such as a radio-controlled clock or smartphone. Pull the crown to the first position and turn it to the correct time.

Can I change the time on my Marathon watch while on my wrist?

Removing the watch from your wrist is generally recommended before setting the time. It will allow you to easily access the crown and avoid accidental damage to the watch.

My Marathon watch has a digital display. How do I change the time on it?

To change the time on a Marathon watch with a digital display, access the watch’s settings menu. It is typically done by pressing a button on the side of the case. Once in the settings menu, you should be able to navigate to the time setting and use the buttons to adjust the time. Refer to the product documentation or contact the manufacturer for more specific instructions on accessing the settings menu and changing the time on your particular model of Marathon watch.

Can I set the time on my Marathon watch while it is in the water?

It is generally not recommended to set the time on a Marathon watch while it is in water, as this can cause damage to the watch. If your watch is water-resistant, it should withstand brief periods of immersion, but it is still best to avoid setting the time while it is in water.

I accidentally set the time on my Marathon watch to the wrong time zone. How do I fix this?

Some Marathon watches have a feature that allows you to set the time zone, which can be accessed through the settings menu. If your watch has this feature, you can change the time zone to the correct one. If your watch does not have a time zone feature, you can still change the time to the right time for your location by using the crown to set the time to a reference time source.

I need help setting the time on my Marathon watch. What should I do?

If you need help setting the time on your Marathon watch, refer to the product documentation or contact the manufacturer for assistance. Try setting the time using a different reference time source, such as a radio-controlled clock or smartphone, to ensure that you accurately set the time. If you are still having difficulty, consider taking your watch to a professional jeweler or watch repair specialist for assistance.
