The crown maybe a screwdown type. Try unscrewing (like jar lid)them pulling out the crown.

I cannot get my Seiko SNA304 chronograph second hand to reset after battery change. Keeps resetting to the 17 minute position, I have tried to use the manual instructions but with no success, Any help...


Hello,

Seiko watches are a popular accessory for both men and women. The history of Seiko watches goes back to 1881 long time ago, when the company that was to become Seiko began. From the beginning, the method to set a Seiko watch has been designed to be a simple process.

The following are the steps to set a Seiko watch for the time, day and date function, and for setting the chronograph on an analog watch.

Set the Time:

  • THE CROWN
Pull the button on the side of the watch carefully, the crown, out to its most extended position. You will need to unlock the crown if your watch has a locking crown. To unlock, turn the crown counter clockwise. While the crown is pulled out in the setting position, the watch will cease functioning.
  • 12 O'CLOCK POSITION
Turn the crown clockwise to move the hands of the watch past the 12 o'clock position on the dial. The day and date will change to indicate AM setting but will not change for PM setting. It is recommended that you set a Seiko watch in the morning for instant day and date setting; however,this can be done manually.
  • FINISH
To finish setting the time, simply push the crown until it is flush with the side of the watch.

Good luck and thanks for using fixya.

Need instructions on National Geographic Men's watch #NG010GYSK




go to Buliva web site and look for the chorograph 561/598
FEATURES
1. Hours, minutes, seconds and date display.
2. 60 minute Chronograph (CHRONO) with minutes and
seconds display.
3. 24 hour hand, permanently synchronized with the normal
12 hour hand.
A. SETTING THE TIME
1. Pull the crown out to position “3” (See diagram). If the crown has
a “screw-down” lock, then unscrew the crown lock first by turning
the crown toward you, then pull it to position “3”. Do not forget to
screw the crown back “IN” after all setting is completed.
2. Turn the crown towards you (hands moves clockwise) until the
date changes at approximately midnight.
3. Continue turning the hour and minute hands to the correct time.
If it is afternoon you must go past 12 o’clock again (noon) to set
the correct time.
4. When the correct time is set,push crown back to position “1”.
B. SETTING THE DATE
1. Pull crown to position “2”(See proceeding diagram).The watch
will continue to run.
2. Turn the crown away from you until the correct date appears.
3. Once the date is set, push the crown back to position “1”.
Note: Do NOT set the date between the hours of 8:00 PM and
3:00 AM.This would not damage the watch,but the date may need
to be reset later.
C. CHRONOGRAPH (CHRONO) ADJUSTMENT
If the chrongraph second hand is not positioned at the proper
starting position (12 o’clock or “zero” position), use the below
procedure.It does not need to be repeated unless the watch
receives an impact sufficient to move the hand out of position, or
the Battery has been changed.
1. Pull crown out to position “3”.
2. Push button “A” to move the Chrono Second hand (long hand) to
the “0” or 12 o’clock position. Each button push will move the
hand one step – BUT holding the button down will advance the
hand rapidly.
3. Push crown back to position “1”.
D. USING THE CHRONOGRAPH (CHRONO)
Note:
The maximum chrono reading is 60 minutes, However the
chrono will continue running once 60 minutes has passed. The
resulting one hour periods may be added together mentally to keep
track of longer periods.
For example – If you know that approximately one hour has
passed since you started the chronograph, and the chrono reads
25 minutes, then you know that the chrono has been running 60
minutes plus 25 minutes, which is one hour and 25 minutes.
1. Push Button “A” to start the chronograph. Push button “A” again
to stop the chronograph.
2. Push button “B” to return the two chronograph hands to the
“Zero” or starting point.
3. The Chronograph can be stopped and started again
(Button “A”), repeatedly, to “ADD” times together.

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

Seiko chronograph alarm


Solution #3 (Posted by Guest on 5 Mar 08) is spot on. Quick and easy method to reset the chrono hands (it was not in my Seiko manual).
Interestingly, this can also be used to set the chrono ahead (or behind--with a little math) for offset timing measurements.
