Well, thats a good watch. however, based on the conditions of your watch, probably, its battery is not dead. some of its mechanism were not in place or broken. Repairing it is advisable. Afterall it has no scratches like what you've said. So go for repair men!
This is a symptom of what is usually several possible issues:
1) The most common is that the battery must be changed. Insist on Energizer batteries only (as they do not leak) and visit your local Certified Master Horologist for assistance in changing the battery and resetting the watch. 2) The movement must be serviced every 3-5 years by a qualified professional. Dust and debris can cause the symptom of stopping and starting the movement. If you have owned it for less time than this, remember that the watch may have been manufactured and in the retail location longer than this period of time before it was purchased. 3) The movement is defective or damaged. If the watch is under warranty, and it was purchased through an authorized dealer, Armani will take care of this issue for you at no charge.
To properly assess this issue, I recommend taking the first step, as a CMH also has the proper tools to test the movement and battery to determine the best next course of action.
Not sure this is worded right. A chronometer is watch that has been certified by a Swiss organization to keep time within a set +/- seconds per day in several positions and temperatures.
A chronograph on the other hand is a watch that has push buttons on the side for starting/stopping/resetting a set of hands to mark time elapsed.
If this is truly about a chronometer not starting it is either a broken part or needs cleaning.
If it is about the chronometer not starting most likely if it is a mechanical watch the pusher is stuck or broken or a lever is out of place or bent. If the whole watch does not run then it could be a broken mainspring.
If it is a quartz chronometer it could be a bad battery or if the battery has been changed it is most likely the person that changed the battery has damaged one of the coils and or circuit.
A qualified watchmaker can help with any of these problems.

It's broken. Mine is doing the same thing. Others online have experienced the same defect. I bought mine from woot.com in July and just gave it to my son for Christmas. Check the Seiko website and send it in for repair. It has a 3 yr warranty.
Check out if you have two batteries in your watch - one for LED display, another for analog movement. If there is only one battery, your watch has a mechanical fault and you will need help of a watchmaker.
I have been in the industry for the past 2 years as a watchmaker's assistant. So I'll see if I can help.
The larger second hand you see in this Chronograph model, using it is only available in the Chronograph mode.
How long a battery should last (if I had a dollar for everytime I've heard that one! :)
Well generally a battery should last about 2 years. It all depends on how many functions that watch has, as for a chrono the more you use that function the more the battery power it uses. I have not seen this watch but as it looks to be the 'standard' kind of format of a chronograph, just one battery would surfice.
In regards to 1/10 lap, please take the to a watchmaker as the hands need to be reset, this either can be done manually or can be done by pulling out the crown slightly (please as if you are to forcefull you will pull the crown and stem out) NOT GOOD!. if you pull it out to 'quick date change' where only the date can be changed try pressing one of the pushers and see which sub dial hands move, if that doesn't work try the other pusher.
Again if the above doesn't work, pull the crown out to time set mode (where you can adjust the time) and try the same steps as above. If this fails and it's still off, take it to a watchmaker and he/she will realign the hands for you!
First, you need to set the hands at midnight. Press the upper button for 3 secs and let go. The hands will start to advance. Watch them, and when you are almost at the position of 00:00:00, press the upper button again briefly and the hands will stop. Then pulse the upper button to finish advancing the second hand to a perfect 00:00:00. Within 10 seconds, press the middle, knurled, button briefly (if you don’t, the watch will just to back to where it was). When you have done this, the watch will start to run (albeit at the wrong time). Now you need to tell it to set itself from the time signal. Press the upper button and the lowest one *at the same time* for 3 secs and let go. The watch will acknowledge your request by moving the second hand (only) to 12. Leave the watch somewhere it is likely to get good radio reception. In a few minutes, you will see its hands start to move to the correct time, and they will eventually get there and your watch will be working again.
