"All-reset" function inaccurate

During an "all-reset" procedure, all the the hands should rapidly advance to the 0 position. Carrying out this procedure with my watch, the "second" hand moves to the 0 position, but all other hands move slightly move from their current positions but never indicate 0 as they should. As you know, if the "all-reset" does not work properly all the other functions will follow accordingly. Thank you in advance for any help you can provide.

SOURCE: the second hand is not moving

I have the same problem with my watch. The second hand
tends to stop even if it's not dim. Leave the watch outside
in bright sun for several hours. I've found that this will charge the watch so that afterwards,
the second hand will work even inside (well, not all the time,
but if it's fairly bright).

SOURCE: new watch will not move from "NG" position

This watch is known to have a long "startup" time, i.e., it takes a while to get a full charge. I suggest that you expose the watch to sun light directly for at least a day if possible, or put it under strong fluorescent lights for 24 hours to see what happens. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: I cannot get the first and second hands to reset

If you put the watch into the CHR mode, then pullthe knob out two clicks, you can then see "HR" displayed on the left display. If you push the top right button in once it will say "MIN", then "SEC" if you push it in again. What you need to do is roll the knob when each of these modes are lit up, and get each hand to rest in the 12 o'clock position on the face. Once they are all pointing exactly at the 12 then push the knob back in all the way and roll it back to the TME mode and the watch should sync up. If this doesn't work it's a different issue. Hope this helps.

24 hours hand in advance of 2 hours from the hours hand

You need a watchmaker. This probably occurred when you had a dead battery replace. It is possible to reset the different hands through a procedure involving pressing different buttons with the crown in different positions.

Need an expert on the new minute repeater by campanola, sold one at the retail jewelry store i work at, gentleman wants step-by-step hands on instruction as to the minute repeater function as well as the...

in order to set the repeater chime you need to set the watch and the sub watch to the same time.

This watch has comes with crown in position 0 , if you pull it out one level it becomes position 1 and if you pull it out one more time it is position 2 .

There are 3 buttons on the watch also. The button directly above the crown is button A the button below the crown is button B and the button directly across the crown is button C.

To set time you must first pull out crown to position 2 when the small second hand is at 12 o'clock position and it is stopped.

The mode will also at this time go to 0 and the sub watch second hand( the long second hand with the sun on it ) will also go to 0.

At this time you can just move the crown to set the proper time to the main watch . Now if you press the B button to set the sub watch . Each time you press the B button it will advance one minute hold down the B button and will advance time faster.

Do this to set the sub watch time make sure you watch the am and pm to make sure you are getting the proper time of day.

if the sub watch second hand ( the long second hand) is not aligned to 12 oclock then press the A button keep pressing button or hold it down to go faster until it is aligned at the 12 oclock position

Now push crown in back to 0 position for your time for your watch and sub watch should be set.

Set leap year.
Pull crown to position 1
Press the B button to adjust leap year.
the leap year is set by how many years from the previous leap year it has been . So 2008 was the previous leap year so we will h ave to set leap year at year 2 . The hands of the leap year are connected to the month so you must hold down a and b button or just press the b button to get to year 2 .

once you do that your leap year should be set.

to set the Repeater ( this is a beep from the watch to tell you the time with sound) make sure crown is in 0 position and hold a button for a couple of seconds to activate Reapter.

you can press any other button to end the chime .

also to get to leap year view while crown is in 0 position hold down the b button for 2 seconds . Pushes any button to return to normal calendar.

If your Decade watch is like mine it has 4 push buttons (10, 2, 4 and 8 "o'clock" positions respectively; and one pull and turn stem (at 3 o'clock position) -
For the purpose of setting the watch and functions mentally label the push buttons as follows:
10 o'clock position "A"
8 o'clock position "B"
2 o'clock position "C"
4 o'clock position "D"


1) In normal time readout press B (3x) to get to normal time setting mode: "SEC" will start flashing, press C for synchronization
2) Press D once: "MIN" will be flashing, press C to advance
3) Press D once: "HOUR" will be flashing, press C to advance ("A" is for am, "P" is for pm, "H" is for 24 Hour format)
4) Press D once: "DATE" should be flashing, press C to advance
5) Press D once: "MONTH" should be flashing, press C to advance
6) Press D once: "DAY OF WEEK" should be flashing, press C to advance
7) Press B once: Setting is completed, return to normal time readout


1) In normal time readout press B (2x): Alarm time "HOUR" should be flashing, press C to advance
2) Press D once: Alarm time "MIN" should be flashing, press C to advance
3) Press B once: Setting is completed, return to normal time readout

1) In normal time readout press C and D simultaneously: Alarm signal should appear
2) In normal time readout disarm alarm by pressing C and D simultaneously: alarm signal should disappear

Note: Alarm (when activated) will stop itself after 1 minute; or can be silenced by pressing D or press C to snooze for 5 minutes (operates for 1 hour)


1) In normal time readout press D and B simultaneously: Chime signal should appear
2) In normal time readout disarm chime by pressing C and D simultaneously: alarm signal should disappear

While in Chrono mode there are two options
a) During a counting event: press C to stop counting, press D to clear and reset stopwatch to 0:00
b) During a counting event: press D to see a "split" time (IE first leg of a relay time is shown while the counting event continues, press D again to return to running counting event; press C at end of event, press D to reset stopwatch to 0:00

Need instructions on National Geographic Men's watch #NG010GYSK

go to Buliva web site and look for the chorograph 561/598
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.
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”.
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.
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”.
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.

The crown is probably a screw down style. The screw down stem is designed to keep the water out and should be screwed shut when not adjusting the watch. Look at the watch stem from the side, look from the 3 oclock to the 9 oclock, you should see the end of the stem. Now turn the stem counterclockwise. After a number of turns, the stem should pop out a bit, it is now ready to set. Most waterproof automatic day/date watches have 4 positions for the stem:

1: screwed down (locked)
2: unscrewed position A
3: unscrewed position B (stem pulled out to first "click")
4: unscrewed position C (stem pulled out all the way.)

Position A:
This is usually used to wind the watch, although some automatic watches cannot be wound by the stem.

Position B:
Used to set day/date. Turning the stem one direction will advance the day and turning it the other direction will advance the date.

Position C:
Used to set the time. Some watches will "hack," a term used to describe the ability to stop the second hand for accuracy purposes.

Be sure the watch is at least a little bit wound before starting theis procedure or it will not run when you get it set!

Unscrew the stem and pull it all the way out to position C. Now turn the stem to advance the time clockwise. Continue turning until the day/date advances, now you know you are in the AM 12 hrs of the day. It is important not to advance the day/date with the stem during the 3 hours before and the 3 hours after midnight, so go ahead and move the time to 8 am.

Now push the stem in sligthly until you are in position B. Sometimes it is easier to go to position A, the out to position B. Once in position B, advance the day/date until it is set for the current day/date.

Pull the stem out to position C. Adjust the time to one minute past the current time. Watch your reference timepiece until it matches your watch and push the stem in when they match.

Your watch is now set! Screw the crown down and wear it in good health.

Hacking. If you stop the second hand at 0 seconds, and wait for your reference timepiece to reach 0 seconds also, you can set the watch to within a second accuracy.

Movement slop. If you advance the time past the time you wish to set your watch and then "backup" to your chosen time, you will remove the slop from the geartrain and make your watch set more accuretly
