You have tiny dirt particles in gear train or one of the gear wheel teeth is damaged. As a result of this the seconds hand is behaving erraticly when the damaged point on wheel reach the junction point with another gear wheel.
There is nothing you can do yourself. Find the nearest watchmsker and ask to overhaul your watch.

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

Stopping after 12 or 24 hours


Read your manual carefully and you will notice that the big, tall seconds hand is part of chronograph function. So, by pushing upper button you are actually engaging chronograph. This puts more strain on movement gears and consumes more battery power. When your watch is in normal timekeeping mode, the small seconds hand is counting seconds, not the big one which should be steady pointed at 12. I would recommend to put a new battery in your watch, reset it and start using it as described in users manual. You can download users manual here: http://www.oakley.com/customer-care/support/watches
Rate me, plz.

Watch erratic. Slows suddenly between days of working well.


Sounds like a failing battery to me. Its very common for a watch to loose time when battery needs to be changed.

My stopwatch resets to the 7 instead of the 12. Can you help


On most watches all you have to do is pull the crown to position 2 (the last) and depress pusher A (on the top). The second hand should advance in 1 second intervals. Keep pushing the A pusher until the second hand lines up with 12 hour marker. Push the crown back in and your done!

Luminox 8152 chrono


If you have your instruction manual it should tell you how to reset the chrono. i have the Luminox 8352 and it says to pull the crown out to the 3rd position. then press and hold both the start/stop and lap/reset buttons for a couple of seconds. you'll see the second hand rotate, then you can single click the start/stop button to manually move the second hand 1 second, or you can hold it and it will continue move for a longer period until time desired. if you need to adjust the other chrono hands, click the lap/reset button and then you can click the start/stop button again. repeat for the minute/hour chrono hand. when you're finished push the crown back in. it might work even though it's a different model, worth a shot? hope that helps. these are really great watches.
