Small hand on Millennia not keeping time

Hello, The small hand on my Millennia isn't keeping correct time. It used to mirror the big hands when the alarm wasn't set. Not sure what's going on. Any help would be appreciated... Thanks! Will

Re: Small hand on Millennia not keeping time

From your book, start from square one. Second hand to 12 Pull crown to stop second hand.Set sub hands to duplicate main hands (correct time) Push crown in. I'm not that clever , I got the jeweler to do it for me.

Second hand not moving

If the Chronograph is running, the second hand may be paused as on of your dials is recording seconds instead of the larger second hand. You shouldn't be running the chronograph timing all the time.

Hi I have a g-shock watch, problem is that even though I have synced the time to the correct area (London) my watch appears fast. I feel the watch has the correct time because on the little digital display...

all you have to do is to set the analog time, to do this just simply press the mode button until the H-SET in the digital face appears then press and hold the adjust button on the upper left until the digital time appears, then press the upper right button until the analog time reaches the exact time of the digital. last, press once the adjust button... I hope this will help you..

Swatch diaphane second hand stuck

Hello, a week ago the small second hand (not long chrono second hand) got stucked and my irony swatch just stop moving. Although the chronometer could be running if started... The small hand just didn't move.
I tried different tricks, like removing battery, pull out main wheel and use chrono buttons to reset arms. Etc.
Today I noticed that when turning the wheel backwards a couple of times (one or two hours back) the little hand moved one second back... Pushing wheel back to On possition made the small hand move forward one second and get stucked again.
Then I did this procedure a couple of times, at some point I turned the wheel back for a while (may be 5 full turns) and noticed the small hand moved more than one second (5, 10, 15 seconds backward)... when I noticed it was moving freely I pushed wheel to on position and noticed the small second hand was running normal.. I hope it works for some of you. Greettings from Canada

I have a sport watch fossil CH2470. the second hand is not moving, stuck on 12, but everything else works. how do i fix this?

Your watch is Chronograph watch and the big centre seconds hand is for chronograph function only - not day to day seconds counting. Check the small dials and you will see that the small seconds hand is already counting seconds- this small one is seconds counter. To engage chrono hand push the upper push button once. To stop it - push the same button again. to return to zero- push lower button. For users manual use this link: Rate me, please.

Tissot PRS 200 My watch is not keeping time. It is not a batery problem. I have been told that it is because the chronograph is always working. How do I shut it down ?

Your true actual time second hand is on one of your subdials. That big "second" hand is really your chronograph seconds timer. It should start and stop when you depress one of the plungers/ buttons on the side of your watch.
Again, that big hand does not need to be turning all the time (or ever if you never use your advanced stopwatch/ chronograph). The true seconds hand is very small on one of the smaller dials.
Good luck, I hope that's all it is
