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.

Want to use larger second hand and set other to zero. have small one working now and the larger one would work if i pressed the top button on side of watch now it wont do anything if i press button dont...


This watch is a chronograph. The true second hand is the one you mentioned that is currently running (what is called the subdial hand).

To use the chronograph hand,

1) Press the button at the 2:00 location to start timing.
2) Press the button at the 2:00 location to stop timing.
3) Press the button at the 4:00 position to reset the chronograph hand(s) to zero.

To reset the chronograph hands to zero, set the crown to either click position one (usually date setting) or two (usually time setting), and use each button to test which subdial hand it will zero out.

Usually it is the first crown click position, and pressing the 2:00 or 4:00 button to zero out.

Warning: Leaving the chronograph function running will drain your watch battery much faster than using the standard second hand, as it is a complication meant for the purpose of timing an activity or other event.

If this does not zero your watch, you must either send it back to Michele, or visit your nearest Certified Master Horologist to assess the issue, as the movement may have a defect.

Reset chronograph


Hi, I had the same problem and was able to fix it by reading the manual:

Basic Settings for the chronograph hand -
After changing the battery, or in exceptional circumstances, following incorrect operation, it is necessary to reset the Chrono indicator to zero (starting time).
- Leave the winder in Position 1 (pushed all the way in)
- Press button H (top) and button I (bottom) at the same time
- Now set the 30 minute (small hand) counter to zero by pressing/holding button I (bottom button)
- You can now set the 60 second counter to zero by pressing/holding button H (top button).

This worked for me... it took me a while to figure it out, but that

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

Re-set quartz chronograph sweeping second hand


Easy Soultion worked for me. Believe Me I was worried only had the Seiko Sportura for a week now. My second dial for the stopwatch was re-setting to 5 seconds instead of zero. The Solution is
1. pull the Crown all the way out ( In the position you take the crown to set the time , second click ).
2. To set the minute face of stop watch , keep pressing the top button untill it is zero. To set the second needle to zero keep pressing the bottom button untill it reaches zero or where you like it to re-set each time. Depend on you.
3. Once all neddles of stopwatch are at resting postions ( usually zero) secure the crown back to its normal postion. Test your stop watch , hopefully it will go back to zero when you press the reset button. C

Glad to help. ashfaque.r@googlemail.com

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.
