The dials on my chronograph wristwatch do not move
I recently just got a D & G sandpiper chronograph wristwatch as a christmas present.
the watch has the hour,minute and seconds dials.
it also has 2 push buttons and 3 other small faces(don't know what exactly to call them)each having a single dial.
the first push button (A)sets the dial in one of the faces moving,it also stops it.
the other push button (B)also does the same thing to the same dial,once or twice it set the dial on another face in motion but since then the dial's on the 2 other faces don't move on pressing any of the push buttons
i like to know the cause of this and any possible way of fixing this.

The seconds hand is purely a 60 second timer mate! It's the small crono dial at the top which is actually the real seconds hand! To get it going you need to unscrew your top adjusting wheel and push it once.....and it will start and the watch will hold time fine! To stop the large seconds timer hand undo the bottom adjusting wheel and push it! Boom job done! It caught me out aswell until a watch maker told me Rolex works the same and what you think is your seconds hand is just a timer the other hands won't follow hope this helps chaps
The dials are part of a Chronograph (stop watch) I assume there is a second, minute, and maybe a date function. Usually the large second hand is part of the stop watch on only moves when you start the stopwatch (top right button) push again to stop and reset back too zero is the bottom button. Usually to set or zero out those dials pull out the crown to the first click (also sets date) then push the top button to set the seconds (big hand) and the bottom button to set the other. sometimes you may need to pull the crown out to the second click (also sets hour and minutes) to set add'l dials.This is generally how you set most chronograph watches the button you push and what moves may be different.
It sounds to me as it is a quartz chronograph and it is right that the centre seconds hand moves only if the pushbutton is pressed. If you look close enough, you will notice that the small subdial finger is ticking and counting seconds. It is recommended to replace battery, as sometimes watches been laying in stores for a few years before selling and the battery is flat or underpowered.

Try this method. Set the date until it reads a couple of days in the past and then set the correct time. Of course do not touch your date or time settings between the hours of 9PM-1AM. Wait until the next day, then move the hour hand forward until you reach the current date with the correct time.
