You have to reset your watch. Pull out crown to first click and try to move stop watch hand by pressing one of the pushbuttons. If this do not work, push the crown back in. Now pull out crown fully tto the second click and try to manipulate with pushbuttons again.
After resetting stop watch hand to 0 push the crown in completely.
Job done.

HOW USE TACHYMETER & WHAT TACHYME3TER MEANS


A Tachymeter helps you estimate the speed you are going.

It uses the basic formula that speed = Distance/time

Here is how to use it: (For the full article see the link below)

To use tachymeter, simply start the chronograph or stopwatch when the object measured passing the starting line. When the object reaches the next mile or kilometer marker, stop the chronograph or stopwatch. The point on the tachymeter scale that adjacent to the second hand of the watch indicating the speed (in miles per hour or kilometers per hour) of object traveling between the two points.

For example, we want to measure the average speed of a vehicle is moving. Start the chronometer or stopwatch function when the car passes the starting line, and stop the timer after the vehicle traveled exactly 1 mile or 1 kilometer. Then look at where the chronometer hand (the second hand of the watch) is pointing to, and get the reading or value of the corresponding number at the tachymeter bezel or dial. Let's say the stopwatch stop at 3 o'clock position, meaning 15 seconds had elapsed for the car to travel 1 mile or 1 kilometer. At 3 o'clock position, the tachymetre value shows that number of 240, which means the average speed of the vehicle was 240 mph or km/h.

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

Just a quick question On my Omega Double eagle, I went to mexico for the week left my watch at home and when I return I gave it a shake to start the movement being it is a chroncile watch and for some...


A mechanical watch will tend to stop in the same place if an internal gear is slightly unbalanced and/or there's a spot of grease/dirt that makes that particular point on a gear slightly more difficult to pass. I've often seen watches with day/date indicators stop just around midnight, as it takes more energy to advance those dials than just move the hour and minute hands.
Try winding your watch with the crown as opposed to shaking it to wind it via the automatic rotor. Actual winding will bring your mainspring up to full power much faster than a whole lot of winding via automatic rotor. See if this changes the behavior of the watch. If it doesn't, you probably need to have a watchmaker take a look at the watch. He or she will probably recommend cleaning the movement to clear any dirt that might be causing the problem.

I just bought the armani ar0142 but the second hand doesn't work. Is this normal?


Take closer look and you will notice the small seconds hand which should be working. The dig seconds hand actually is chronometer hand and will work only when the chronometer function is engaged. Push the top button once=chronometer will start. Push the top button once more=chronometer will stop. Push the bottom button once=chronometer will return to zero. Rate me, please.

Stopwatch second hand stops/jams at 57 seconds point jamming the whole works. Watch stops. Keeps excellent time otherwise if stopwatch not used. 2003 ss model. Bought new from rolex.


This may sound obvious but it needs to be repaired by a jeweler/watch repair shop. Although it is possible that the stop watch second hand is out of sync it would usually mean that the stop watch is starting at 3 seconds before 00:00 for 57 stop. If that's the case you should be able to readjust the start/stop position by pulling the crown out to 1st or 2nd position and then pressing the stop watch start stop buttons. One press, one position. Although I am not certain of the exact sequence.
However if you are unsure or it starts at the 00:00 position you need to find a jeweler you can trust to do the work. Check out a few places and ask to see the credentials of the watch repair person then compare and make an informed decision. Don't just use the jeweler at purchase point.
Most times, if it's a simple repair, like readjusting the hands a good jeweler will do it for nothing.

Good luck

I have lost the back cover of my watch. Had a new battery put in and the first time I wore it afterwards , I noticed the back covering was missing. Can you send my a new back or advise where I can a


Alot of times the company will help you with this problem, get ahold of them first. If you have no luck there, fined yourself a reputable watchmaker who probibly will be able to fit one on for you. You are lucky it is a round back,any other would probibly be near imposible to fit. If you still have problems let me know . I have been a watchmaker for 24 years, my father was a watchmaker for 50, and my grandfather was a watchmaker for 50., between what I have gathered in 24 years and my family, I should be able to help. Good Luck!!

Rolex Daytona Chromograph


ok. bear with me. lol. on most watches without a chronograph. the second is the largest hand on the watch and naturally that's what most people refer to as the second hand. On a chronograph the "true" second hand is the little middle dial. It should always be constantly moving and the large hand should only move when the stop watch funtion is in play. The way to employ the stopwatch funtion is by unscrewing both buttons. The top button starts the action. Once pressed then large hand will begin. The little dial on you left will keep up with each minute that passes. To stop the function, press the top button again. To reset the stop watch, press the bottom button. The little dial on your right is simply military time. Hope that helps. Good luck!!
