    AC Reset for A DW 290 Mission Impossible Watch

    Hi All
    I would be grateful for some help.
    I have a Dw 290 aka the Mission Impossible watch. It was my Dads. I have replaced the battery, but can not seem to do an AC rest. I am not sure which connector I wire up / Tweezer up with the battery.
    Help gratefully received.

    Hello,
    top left right, near the battery, you can see AC stamped on the plate.

    hope it helps

    ^ Yes, that's right. The "AC" is visible in the photo. I recommend taking a paper clip and unfolding the outer wire by about 45 degrees. You gently touch the end of it to the AC then pivot the lower end of the paper clip to touch the battery or metal cage. Hold it there for a few moments. Sometimes you may need to do the AC short a couple of times. If you have a mirror handy, keep it on the table. This makes it easy to see if the AC worked (meaning time is 12:00:00). The paper clip thickness is "just right" and the end of it is flat so that you don't scratch the AC contact point. Pointed tweezers have a tendency to cause the AC contact point to get scratched.

    I'd take the battery back out then AC Reset once you replace it.

    As mentioned the time will be 1200, and also the date will have reset to the module manufacturing date too, I reckon with that watch something in the 90's?

    I see the AC contact just to the upper right of the visible part of the battery.
