This drove me mad when I had a battery changed! In the manual there was a section on zeroing the Chrono hands on my Seiko. Pull the crown to the first (or may and been second) stop and press the button nearest the dial. Each push will move it one second. Stop when you get to 60 and push in the crown.
Pull the crown out to the first position, and then you may find that successive pushes of the upper pushbutton will move one of the chrono hands by one division, and the lower pushbutton will move a different chrono hand. Similarly if you pull the crown out to the second position, the pushbuttons will control the other chrono hands. In this way you can set each of the chrono hands to their zero positions. Hope this works..
The small bottom dial is seconds counter and there is no option to set or reset it as it is part of the main gear train - it just counts the seconds. Top right dial is 1/10 seconds counter and runs only when the chronograph function is engaged. One full circle indicates 1 second. Top left dial is 30 minutes counter and runs only when the chronograph function is engaged. One full circle indicates 30 minutes, two circles = 1 hour. The big centre seconds hand is actually Chronograph hand and runs only when the chrono function is engaged. So, the chronograph hand and two top dials works all together when chrono function is engaged. To start chrono: push upper button once. To stop chrono: push upper button again (once). To return all hands to zero: push lower button once. There is another option: if you already stopped chrono by pushing upper button, but want to continue counting without returning hands to zero, push the upper button once more and the counting will start from the point where it stopped. You can repeat this as many as you wish - it will count on and on, till you will stop it and reset to zero. Fine tuning of chrono hands can be made by pulling the crown half way out and while leaving in this position pushing and holding one of the push buttons (which one - depends on movement caliber). Watch has an tachymeter function as well (big inner ring). Learn how to use it by browsing through my Tips and Tricks- it is explained there.

Try the following, which I discovered by accident on my Tag Professional.

This is chronometer that's need reset. Tachymeter is usually located on bezel or inclined ring and is used for speed calculations of moving object over the given period of time. Ok, back to your chrono hand resetting. Pull out crown and then push the upper button and hold it. The chrono hand should start move and you should be able to adjust it. If this doesn't work, try the same with lower button. When adjusted - push the crown back in. In fact there are very many variations how to reset chrono hand, but exact advise can be given if the movement caliber of particular watch is known.

As jimmyguru said. 1. Pull the crown to the second position (all the way out) 2. Push and hold the reset button and allow the chronograph hand to rotate near the 12 o'clock position. 3. Release the reset button. 4. Repeatedly push and release the reset button to find tune the hand position until it is right at 12 o'clock. 5. Push the crown back in.
Do as follows: 1) pull out crown and set the hour and minute hands at 6 o'clock (they must be lined perfectly in opposite directions) 2) push the crown in half way back (not completely) 3) push and hold the button at 2 o'clock (set the big seconds hand to zero) and release it when done 4) when big seconds hand is zeroed push the crown back in 5) pull the crown out again and set desired time 6) push the crown back in. If
all actions described do not work, you will have to visit your nearest
watch repair shop and ask to refit chronograph hand as in this case it
is out of balance (not pointed at exact mark).
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
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.
