To calibrate compass, pull crown to MIDDLE position. Keep watch level or place on level surface (if band interferes, place watch on inverted cup). Watch may be face down, but take care to protect watch face. Press COMPASS push button to begin. Indicator hand rotates two revolutions to remind you to rotate watch. While level, SLOWLY rotate watch two revolutions, taking at least 15 seconds per revolution. This is critical in achieving proper calibration. When done, press any push button, keeping watch level. Indicator hand moves back and forth to acknowledge end of calibration and then moves to current declination angle setting. If you do not wish to set declination angle, push crown in. Otherwise, to have watch automatically compensate for declination angle, turn compass ring until north is at 12 o'clock. Press either TIDE or TEMP push button to move indicator hand east (+) or west (-) to point to your location's declination angle. On the Expedition analog compass watch:
If your needle has begun returning to the rest position pointing away from 12 o'clock, it will also be off from North by the same amount. To reset the rest position, pull the crown ALL the way out, and use the top & bottom right buttons to return it to the 12 o'clock position. Fix the time (clock will have stopped with the crown all the way out.) Push the crown back into the middle position and calibrate (above).
