Problem figuring out puritan chronograph watch

I bought a puritan chronograph watch at walmart - model number PUR60901W as it says on the metal plate in the back of the watch.
I can pull the time setting pin out twice. First pull is to set date and second to set the time. But the 3 choronograph needles never moves. Is it just for show or do they really work?

    I can only pull the pin out once; the day and date features won't move at all.

SOURCE: Setting date and time

I don't know how much significance this post would make to any now, but I was playing with the watch trying to figure out how to set the time and I have figured it out...

1. Hold the "Adjust" button until where it displays the day of the week starts blinking (This will display the major airport in your area to determine your time zone, mine is "LAX"...to change this, while it is still blinging press either "Time Memo" or "Recieve" to move up or down)

2. Press "Adjust" again so you see "12H" (I guess meaning 12 hour intervals)

3. Press "Mode" (at this point your seconds will start blinking) to change these, againg press "Time Memo" or "Recieve" to move up or down. (usually I skip past the seconds)

4. Repeat step 3 to do your hours, minutes, year, then the date...(order is as follows)

5. When you are done press "Adjust" then everything will stop blinking, and you are done


This is as much as I figured out and I hope this is helpful to anyone that needs it...

SOURCE: Can not figure out how to remove links from Casio watch band

You may or may not have arrows inside bracelet. Arrows are pointing the way the pins must come out.
First you have to find out what sort of pins or even screws are used to keep links together.
Examine both bracelet sides and find the side where pin ends have a groove.
Start with a tiny screwdriver and unscrew one of the screws. If it turns, but doesn't come out, that means you have a pins instead.
For removing pins the best would be pin removing tool (approx.5GBP on ebay), but it's possible to do the job without it.
Take a hardened steel needle and blunt the sharp end to the approx. size of pin end diameter using any sharpening stone or sandpaper. Get an old towel and fold it to make a soft base for work (like small cusion). As you don't have a special bracelet holder you will need a pair of helping hands to hold the bracelet steady upright. You will need small hammer and pair of flat nose pliers as well.
NOTE: The pins MUST be driven split end out first, not vice versa. Make sure that the grooved pin ends are facing towel, not the needle and hammer!!!
Now place the watch on the folded towel, take that needle and smallest hammer you have and start driving the pin out using light blows. Do Not hit hard, as you will brake the needle, scratch your watch or even injure yourself. Watchmakers are using 45 gram hammer, so, calculate your strength of blows.
After a few blows check if the split end is coming out and when you see that the end is long enough to grab it with pliers, pull the pin out with pliers. When pulling, do NOT turn pliers, as pins tend to brake when twisted. Use firm grip and your strength to pull the pin without twisting.
After shortening the bracelet or adding extra link(s) make sure that the pins go back EXACTLY the same way as they came out- the blunt end first in the hole and the split (grooved) end last. Before doing that check remaining pins in bracelet to make sure that you put them back from the right side of bracelet.
It is recommended to use plastic hammer to drive pins back in or you will scratch or damage bracelet. If plastic hammer is not available use an old toothbrush handle (or some plastic item) as an absorber. Simply put pin into the hole as deep as you can with your fingers, put the toothbrush handle on split pin end and hit handle, not the pin. 
Make sure that pin ends are flush with bracelet. If needed- hit few more times.
Job done!
If you do not want to do it yourself, any jeweler will do it in a matter of few minutes.

SOURCE: time does not match

Press the lower left knob till it shows 'H.S.' and then release. Then press the upper left knob once and release. Then press the lower right knob continuously. The analog setting starts.

Were is the serial number on a tag heuer 1990's formula 1 chronograph model 571.513T


It is located on the right side of the Tag Heuer logo on the back of the watch. It is not as deeply engraved as the rest of the markings on the back, but rather is very lightly 'tapped' into the metal. 71e414e4-eb33-401b-8e97-f7f3c2c92292.jpg

Just bought the 96r000 bulove 16 diamond watch. Trying to figure out what the 2 little buttons above and below the crown do. Help! It's not described at all in the manual that came with the watch.


The two buttons are the start and stop buttons for the chronograph function (that's a posh name for a stop watch).

If you want to see a full set of instructions, go to http://www.bulova.com/dynamic_repository/instructions/561.pdf m and you will see how your watch operates.

If you have any problems with the linjk, go to "Boluva.com" , select your region, and then click on the Boluva picture. When all the models appear, there is a small box in the top right of the table, put your model number in there and you will get a full description of your watch and there is a user instructions tab, click on this.

Need a user manual for the time magazine free chronograph watch


I have NO ideal what kind of watch it is so I am giving general chronograph instructions. You will have to use as it applies to the watch you were given.

care.gif
These instructions are provided for users who are not familiar with using a mechanical/analog chronograph. The instructions may be applied to any chronograph that has a seconds counter, 30 minute counter, and hour counter.
Please refer to the instructions of the appropriate model to determine the location of each counter on the dial. Note: some of the features described here may not be available on your particular model. Again, refer to the specifications to see if they apply to your model.
Using the chronographe functions:
How to read the chronographe:
For a chronographe that has a center seconds register, a 30 minute register and an hour register. Example 1: If the hour register is between the 1 and 2, but closer to the 1, and the minute register is at 20, and the seconds register is at 35, then the elapsed time is 1 hour 20 minutes and 35 seconds. Example 2: If the hour register is between the 1 and 2, but closer to the 2, and the minute register is at 20, and the seconds register is at 35, then the elapsed time is 1 hour 50 minutes and 35 seconds.
How to read the tachymetre:
If you are driving and want to determine the speed of the car using your tachymetre, start your chronograph when you pass a mile marker, stop your chronographe when you pass the next mile marker. Look at the center seconds hand and read the number on the Tachymetre scale, this number will indicate the miles per hour that the vehicle is travelling.
How to read the pulsometer:
Some watches have a pulsometer instead of a tachymetre. Use it as follows: Start the chronographe and begin counting the pulse. When you have counted 30 beats, stop the chronographe. The number on the pulsometer scale will indicate the pulse rate per minute.
How to read the telemeter:
Some watches have a telemeter instead of a tachymetre or pulsometer. Here is an example of one use for a telemeter: Start the chronographe when you see lighting. Stop the chronographe when you hear the thunder. Read the center seconds hand on the Telemetric scale and the number will indicate the distance separating the observer from the place where the lighting struck. This can give you a good indication of how far off a storm might be.
The many uses of a chronographe:
A chronograph has many practical uses, from timing a plane flight, a car ride, or simply being curious. There are also some uses for the chronographe that may not be so obvious. For example, you can use the chronographe on your watch as a dual timezone indicator. This is done as follows: If it is currently 6 A.M. in your home location and it is 12 noon in London, start your chronograph at exactly 6 o'clock. The number of hours displayed on your chronographe hour register will then show you the current time in London. Of course, these are just some uses of a chronographe. There are hundreds of uses for chronographes.
