How to change time on marathon watch

Marathon watches are popular among athletes and outdoor enthusiasts because of their durability and reliable timekeeping. However, if you travel frequently or if daylight saving time changes, you may need to adjust the time on your Marathon watch. In this blog post, we will go over the steps for changing the time on a Marathon watch, and some frequently asked questions about the process.

Step 1: Locate the crown

The crown is the small knob on the watch case’s right side. It is used to adjust various functions of the watch, including the time. Depending on the model of your Marathon watch, the crown may be positioned differently. Some models may have the crown located at the 3 o’clock position, while others may have it at the 4 o’clock or 2 o’clock position.

Step 2: Pull out the crown

You will need to pull out the crown to adjust the time on your Marathon watch. To do this, gently rotate the crown counterclockwise until it comes out from the case. The amount of resistance may vary depending on the model of your watch. Be careful not to pull too hard, as this may damage the crown or the watch case.

Step 3: Set the time

Once the crown is out, you can begin adjusting the time. To set the time, rotate the crown clockwise or counterclockwise. The watch hands will move in the direction you are turning the crown. If you set the time for a specific time zone, set the watch to the correct time zone before adjusting the time.

Step 4: Push the crown back in

Once you have set the time to your desired time zone, pushing the crown back into the watch case is important. To do this, rotate the crown clockwise until it snaps back into place. Ensure that the crown is fully seated in the case, as this will prevent moisture or debris from entering the watch.

Step 5: Reset the date (if necessary)

Some Marathon watches have a date function that is adjustable using the crown. If your watch has this feature, you can set the date by pulling out the crown and rotating it until the date changes to the correct day. Once the date is set, push the crown back into the case.

FAQs:

My watch has multiple crown positions. Which position do I use to adjust the time?

The position of the crown determines which function of the watch you can adjust. In most Marathon watches, the first position (fully seated in the case) is used for normal timekeeping. The second position (partially pulled out) adjusts the time and date. The third position (fully pulled out) manually winds the watch. If you need help deciding which position to use, consult the user manual for your specific watch model.

My watch is running slow/fast. How can I fix this?

If your Marathon watch is running slow or fast, you can try a few things to fix the issue. First, try adjusting the time using the crown as described above. If the watch is still running slow or fast after adjusting the time, try manually winding the watch using the crown. 

It can help to ensure that the watch is running at the correct speed. If these steps do not fix the issue, your watch may need to be serviced by a professional watchmaker.
