The 24 hour face on the right of the watch is the time, not the stop watch. The minute timer on the left of the watch face is the minutes for the stopwatch, if this is not resetting to 0 after holding down the lower button on the right hand side of the watch, contact your manufacturer.

SOURCE: how to access older timex automatic watch second hand

You should be able to open the back by popping it off with a sharp knife blade. Sometimes, the lip where you'd open it is hard to see and usually under the band, between the lugs. The movement will just come out. If I read you right, you know how to do this, once the movement is removed. You can't just pull the hands off. Hopefully, you'll be able to just VERY EASILY bend the one that is causing the problem.

When you reset the big seconds hand to zero, the hour and the minute hand are not engaged in this function, so, there is no fault with the watch movement.
Do as follows:
1) pull out crown and set the hour and minute hands at 6 o'clock (they must be lined perfectly in opposite directions)
2) push the crown in half way back (not completely)
3) push and hold the button at 2 o'clock (set the big seconds hand to zero) and release it when done
4) when big seconds hand is zeroed push the crown back in
5) pull the crown out again and set desired time
6) push the crown back in.
If all actions described do not work, you will have to visit your nearest watch repair shop and ask to refit chronograph hand as in this case it is out of balance (not pointed at exact mark).

Rate me, please.

SOURCE: I have a Benrus watch from the early years I'm

You should probably take this to a watchmaker.  Many of the older Benrus models are notorious for being made so that the only way into the works of the watch is to remove the crystal from the front.  The back does not come off as the case is made in one piece.

SOURCE: Large second hand not running, Stop Watch function?

Hey, it sounds like your watch is just fine! A nice watch to inherit.
The small second hand on the sub-dial is your normal second hand.
The large second hand is the second timer for your chronograph feature.
It should only move when you hit the side buttons. One of them (usually the top plunger/ button) will start the Chrono timer and then hitting it again will stop it. The bottom button should reset the hand to the 12 o'clock/ zero marker.
If the large hand is not functioning at all then there may be something wrong with the watch; perhaps the buttons are not making full contact within the watch or the hand may be stuck and need repair.
Hope this answers your questions. Post more questions if need be.
Congrats on your new watch.

Lucien Piccard is a brand with distant Swiss heritage, which now has the same address as Invicta, SWI group, Stuhrling/Akribos and World of Watches. Asian manufacture and always a deep "discount" from list price. This isn't to say that they don't have some great looking watches, only intended as a bit of background to the company.

Hi, in my seamaster 2221.80 quartz most of the clicks of the seconds hand does not align with the second markers.is this normal & can it be re-calibrated. its a little out of character from an...


A competent watch repair technician can remove and reset the second hand on your watch so that it more precisely aligns with the seconds markers on your dial. However, it may not be possible to get the hand to perfectly align with all 60 markers around the dial. It is not uncommon in cheaper watches for this misalignment to occur, either because the dial has shifted slightly from its original placement on the movement (for glued-on dials) or because the second hand was not carefully aligned when it was initially installed. This problem is less common in watches where the watch dial is more precisely attached and aligned with the movement via screws.
To perform this service, the movement is typically removed from the watch, so this is not a 10-second job. Sometimes, the watch crystal is removed instead, but this may take more time and reduce the water resistant properties of the watch. Either way, if your Omega is still under warranty, this may be a valid claim for service.
Once the second hand is properly aligned, this problem should not re-occur.

Sweep second hand sticking on colibri pocket watch. How can I correct. I just had battery replaced.


mcdevito75 here, This is a very common problem easily fixed, when the battery was change the repair prerson could have interfered with the seconds hand bending it ever so slightly so it hits the other hands or it became loose, return to the person who changed the battery, they"ll take the back off and fix that seconds hand. Remember this may be no ones fault so I don"t know about any extra charges for service on your watch. This is just my info to you.

Have a waltham pocket watch in an illinois case enameled dial with a recessed seconds dial at bottom with a numeric 6. seconds on face also. can't find year or pic of this watch


If you go to the web site "www.antique-pocket-watch.com/waltham-pocket-watch.html", you will find information about Waltham watches and if you read the serial number off the movement (open the back and read it off the back plate), you may be able to find out the year of manufacture.

Cant set the second hand to move


The "second" hand on this watch is not actually a 'sweep' second hand, as on other watches.
This is a timer dial. ["Stopwatch 1/5 Second Hand"]
To start/stop this, use the top button (Button "A").
To reset this dial to 12 O'clock, use Button "B", after first stopping it with Button "A".
The "second" hand is the small dial at the 9 O'clock position.
In actuality, you 'could' start this and just not stop it...  Then it would function as a "large second hand". That would be up to the owner. (it might use more battery power though... ?)

It would be very easy to mess up the watch by trying to replace it yourself. The part you are working with is very delicate and can end up costing you much more in additional parts and repairs. The repair is easy enough that you should be able to go to a local watch maker/technician and have it be fast and inexpensive.

Using the stop watch feature


Dennis,
"Chronograph" is watch terminology for 'stop-watch'.
There are 3 small dials on the watch.  The main dial has a minute hand and an hour hand.  The big second hand on the main dial is not for the main time of the watch.  It is for measuring seconds for the stopwatch.
The 2 small dials at 10 o'clock and 2 o'clock will give you minutes and 1/10 of a seconds.  
There are 2 buttons on the side of the watch. Top Button:  Start/Stop Bottom Button: Reset
To set the chronograph to its default position, you would pull out the stem to the first position and push the buttons.  Also, pull the stem out further to the 2nd position and push the buttons.

Trouble with Fossil ME1014


I looked at a picture of the watch. I see the date. the dial that is right below the hands is a moon dial which does the phases of the moon & below that you have a separate second hand. A lot of times on a watch that looks like that if you pull the crown where you set the watch with out half a click it will set the date if you turn it on way and the moon dial if you turn it the other way. To set the moon dial on the watch you need to put it on the full moon when the moon is full again then it will keep up with the phases of the moon. I hope this helps.
