Casiotron s14 X1

Post24 Mar 2018, 14:37

Hello,

I have just received an Casiotron S14 X1 module S17, it’s a beautiful watch but I don’t understand how to use the features.
I tried to find the user’s guide on the internet but nothing, I just found the user’s guide for the module s15/s16 or s18/s19 on the website « Casiodigitalwatches ».

Maybe somebody on the forum has the user’s guide ? :Hi:

Hi,
I knew that I have seen somewhere the setting instructions for Casiotron with module 17.
Than I found where: on the former excellent Gafortiby Blog, unfortunately now unavailable. :-(
Here are the former URL http://watches.gafortiby.com/how_to/Cas ... tructions/
And below are the instructions from that page:
Regards,
:dwf:

Casiotron watch, module 17 :
==============
BEGIN INSTRUCTIONS!
==============


Let's say that the following shows the watch's button layout. There are two on the right and one recessed button on the left.

A
B C

In this guide:
{A} means press A
-{A}- means hold A



**So the way this watch works is like this: You can switch between regular timekeeping mode and ONE special mode with {A}.
The watch can only be set to use ONE of FOUR special modes at a time. It cannot use all four special modes at the same time!


==============
SETTING THE WATCH
==============

Setting current time and/or date:
*When in time/date set mode, the selected digit will automatically advance by one every 2 seconds.
*When in time/date set mode, pressing B will abort time set mode.

set time:
When the [5] (50 second marker) is flashing, {B}.
Wait until the hour digit shows the current hour. (Remember, PM is indicated by a [+] on the top right corner.)
{C} to move to the tens minutes digit:
Wait until the first minutes digit shows the current time.
{C} to move to the singles minutes digit:
Wait until the first minutes digit shows the current time.
{C} to finish setting the time.

Set Date:
While -{C}- {B}. This can be done at any second.
Wait until the month digit shows the current month.
{C} to move to the tens days digit:
Wait until the first minutes digit shows the current date.
{C} to move to the singles days digit:
Wait until the first minutes digit shows the current date.
{C} to finish setting the date.


To quickly compensate for 30 second errors in time:
{B} when [0]~[4] is lit flashing -> entire display will start flashing.
To adjust for watch being too fast, {A} when seconds is [0] [1] or [2]. This will round down the seconds to zero.
To adjust for watch being too slow, {A} when seconds is [3] [4] or [5]. This will round up the seconds to zero, advancing to the next minute.

==============
USING THE WATCH: BASICS
==============

To see day/date, -{C}- while in regular timekeeping mode.


To select your special mode:
while -{A}-, {B}
The digits will disappear and only the seconds will show.
Stop watch: {C} when [0] is flashing.
Counter: {C} when [1] is flashing.
World Time: {C} when [2] is flashing.
Time Memory: {C} when [3], [4] or [5] is flashing.
**All settings are erased if you switch to a different special mode.
**Once you select your special mode, it will be in indicated by a solidly lit (not flashing) seconds number. For example, if the [3] is solidly lit in regular timekeeping mode, the selected secondary function is World Time.


==============
USING THE SECONDARY FUNCTIONS
==============

How to use special modes (secondary functions):
For all of these, {A} to enter special mode, {A} to return to regular timekeeping mode.
The following assumes you have selected the correct mode and have already entered the mode.

Stopwatch:
{C} to start stopwatch.
{C} to end stopwatch.
{C} to reset stopwatch.

Counter:
{C} to advance count.
-{C}- to reset.

World Time:
{C} to select the next city.

**To set the correct time zone/ time difference:
Select a city which time you already know.
{B}
Wait until the hour digit shows the current hour at that city. (Remember, PM is indicated by a [+] on the top right corner.)
{C} to move to the tens minutes digit:
Wait until the first minutes digit shows the current time at that city.
{C} to move to the singles minutes digit:
Wait until the first minutes digit shows the current time at that city.
{C} to finish setting the time.
The times at all other cities will be automatically calculated.
**All Cities are set to the same minute & seconds.

Time Memory:
{B}.
Wait until the hour digit shows whatever time you want to remember. (Remember, PM is indicated by a [+] on the top right corner.)
{C} to move to the tens minutes digit:
Wait until the first minutes digit shows whatever time you want to remember.
{C} to move to the singles minutes digit:
Wait until the first minutes digit shows whatever time you want to remember.
{C} to finish setting the time memory.

**This is NOT an alarm. It's basically like writing down some special time inside your watch.
Every watch should have its own story...consequently, a watch collector has to be a good storyteller :)

I already had found the Gafortiby website but it doesn’t run on my computer :scratch:
In any case, thank you again for your help.

As I have told You already, the excellent blog of gafortiby is NO LONGER available online, for unknown reasons and from some time now :-(
Thus, in order to access its content from the past, one need to know how to search for a specific information in the so-called "cache" of the WWW, but even with such type of knowledge, there is not guarantee that one may find exactly the desired information :-(
Glad that I could find it for You and other forum's users that may need it :-D
