Hello, a week ago the small second hand (not long chrono second hand) got stucked and my irony swatch just stop moving. Although the chronometer could be running if started... The small hand just didn't move.
I tried different tricks, like removing battery, pull out main wheel and use chrono buttons to reset arms. Etc.
Today I noticed that when turning the wheel backwards a couple of times (one or two hours back) the little hand moved one second back... Pushing wheel back to On possition made the small hand move forward one second and get stucked again.
Then I did this procedure a couple of times, at some point I turned the wheel back for a while (may be 5 full turns) and noticed the small hand moved more than one second (5, 10, 15 seconds backward)... when I noticed it was moving freely I pushed wheel to on position and noticed the small second hand was running normal.. I hope it works for some of you. Greettings from Canada

SOURCE: Swatch Irony Battery replacement will not work

mcdevito75 here, I am thinking your watch ran fine before the battery change. It sounds like the new battery is not makeing good enough contact, you can try, removeing the battery and cleaning the contacts in the watch carefully with a Q tip, dip the Q tip in anything containing alcohol cologne, rubbing alcohol, perfume wet the Q tip good, then sqeeze most out of the Q tip as not too saturate the battery contacts, also clean the battery itself, the oil on your fingers could give it a poor contact on the watch. The stop watch section doesn"t take as much battery power as the second hand. You may also be able to jump start your watch also, You"ll need a needle and a magnifier glass, With the back off your watch, right in the middle of the movement, just below where the stem (winder) goes, you"ll just see part of a little gear, this is the hour hand gear, see if you can gently move that gear just a fraction, place the needle between the teeth of the gear and try to move it as gentle as possible then se if the gear will move on it"s own., be very carefull with the movement. Swatch watches are collectables. If you don"t feel comfortable doing the above, look for a small watch repair shop in your area for help.

Swatch, irony, men's watch, doesn't work


the second hand, the small one at about 6 o'clock is moving which indicates your watch is working. the other large hand is not the second hand but the chronograph hand or stopwatch hand. You start it in motion by pushing the button a 2 o'clock. You also stop it this way. The button a 4 o'clock is the button than resets it to zero (12 o'clock). You didn't say what wasn't working. Does this help?

I have a swatch irony chrono, but when I stop the stop-watch and push the bottom button, the sweep hand ends up at the 11 o'clock and not the 12 position. My quartz Parnis does this, and its driving me...


Assuming the mechanics work ok (thay all do 360 degree turns) it's just a calibration issue: download from SWATCH support a PDf which describes how to zero the watch hands, it's simple as taking the crown out to 3rd step, the pushing the buttons repectively till they point 12 direction. Exact details in the PDF.

Using the stop watch feature


Dennis,
"Chronograph" is watch terminology for 'stop-watch'.
There are 3 small dials on the watch.  The main dial has a minute hand and an hour hand.  The big second hand on the main dial is not for the main time of the watch.  It is for measuring seconds for the stopwatch.
The 2 small dials at 10 o'clock and 2 o'clock will give you minutes and 1/10 of a seconds.  
There are 2 buttons on the side of the watch. Top Button:  Start/Stop Bottom Button: Reset
To set the chronograph to its default position, you would pull out the stem to the first position and push the buttons.  Also, pull the stem out further to the 2nd position and push the buttons.
