1. Lift setting handle when sweep second hand is exactly at 60 second marker. All hands will stop instantly.
2. Turn hands in either direction until regular hour and minute hands indicate desired time. In doing this, advance minute hand slightly ahead of desired minute marker and then turn it back to this marker. At this point sweep-second hand may have advanced several seconds. Proceed as if hand had not moved.
3. Turn setting handle slightly forward, making certain not to turn it far enough to move minute hand. (This is to permit setting handle to return to flat position without causing hands to jump.)
4. When sweep-second hand or audible signal of time standard by which you are setting your timepiece reaches the 60th second, snap the setting handle back to normal position.
