Set Timex chronograph to zero

Hi, I'm having trouble resetting my Timex chrograph to the zero position. The model is 2M704. After I use the chrograph and stop it and reset it, it resets to a position slightly off zero. I don't have the instructions to set each dial to zero. Please help me!

Thanks

To adjust the chronogragh hands:

Pull the crown out to the "B" position (Timex defines the "A" position as all the way in, "B" as half way out and "C" as all the way out).

Press "Pusher B" (the button at the 4 o'clock position) repeatedly until the hand in the "10 o'clock eye" is at the 30 min (straight up) position.

Pull the crown out to the "C" position.

Press "Pusher A" (the button at the 2 o'clock position) repeatedly until the second hand resets to the "0" (or "60" or "12 o'clock") position.

Press "Pusher B" repeatedly until the hand in the "2 o'clock eye" is in the "0" (straight up) position.

Push in the crown all the way to the "A" position.

This has worked sucessfully on both my T2M467 and T2M552.

    I could not find anything to get the chronograph on my to the correct reset positions, not even in the Timex provided manual. This fixed it.

How do i change the time on the three small dials


Hello Garrett,

"Three small dials"... My guess is that we are talking
a chronometer... (stopwatch)... "ZERO Process".

Not only are the three sub-dials usually settable... but also the sweep second hand.

Trouble: After resetting the watch... the hands go back to the same position...

Solution: You want to "ZERO" your dials... one by one.

These watches typically need to have the stem out to the third position... then press the top "start" timer button... observe ONE of your dials is moving. As it approaches the desired number release the button and step it into position with single button pushes.

Go to the bottom "stop" button... Repeat the process!

Push the stem in to the middle "set" position...
Repeat the process!

Again... press the top "start" timer button... zero
and finally press the top "stop" timer button... and zero.

Set the time and date... push that stem back into the home position... and record 35 seconds on your watch... stop and reset...

If everything does not come back exactly to ZERO...

Then that is called an iterative process (do it again).

Fine tune it!

Good Job.
(comment me back if I didn't hit the spot)

Procedure to set the mode using Push Buttons

Pusher A: Start/Stop Chronograph
Pusher B: Change to Chronograph mode/ Reset to zero

Note if by pressing button B and it doesn't reset to zero, you can adjust the time by following the procedure below

1. Set crown to position 3
2. Press pusher A to realign second hand
3. Press pusher B to realign counter hand at 6H
Note: For faster hand adjustment, hold pusher for 2 seconds or more

Hope this information will help you!

I have a Timex I bought in 2007 on the back of the watch it says CR 2016 cell and WR 100m. The time started to catch on a certain time and stopped the date from working properly, I need to know how to...


Hi,

You should probably replace the battery using a new CR2016 battery. Let the watch set a while without the battery to help it reset. WR 100m just means the watch is "Water Resistant to 100 Meters". Then use the following info.

Timex has two ways to find information about your particular watch. Some of these models only have a guide consisting of a few pages. If you don't have the manual, Try this link:

Complete Timex link site:
http://www.timex.com/info/Product_Instruction_Guides_Downloads

Now, look up the model number, or if you cannot find that, check the three-digit Module Number from the back of the watch. Click on it in the Module Table, and download a PDF of your watch setting-instructions/manual.


If you need further help, call Timex in Little Rock, Arkansas, phone 1-800-448-4639.

I hope this helps you. Thanks, Bill

Pressing reset doesn't go to zero. sweep second hand goes to 57 seconds


Pull out the crown and use either a combination or one of the cronograph buttons, this will allow you to adjust the hand positions

How do tou reset the review function on a timex 30 lap ironman triathlon?


Yeah...it took me awhile to figure this one out too.

You can't actually reset the Review function back to zero. Instead, you replace the data with your latest workout.

Here are the steps:
1) turn on heart rate monitor
2) setup HRM zone
3) start chronograph
4) do your workout
5) stop chronograph
6) review your results

Starting the chronograph is the key. This is the step I missed

Reset Stopwatch Hands on CL1111 ?


Try setting the crown to position 2 - i.e. the position normally used to adjust the date.  Then use the top and bottom stopwatch buttons to adjust the minute hand and 1/10th hand respectively.
