Festina Dashboard watch - Adjusting the hand of the stopwatch

The hand of the stopwatch no longer points directly to the 12 (it's slightly off). Can someone let me know how to adjust the stopwatch hand?

Your watch has quartz movement and stopwatch adjustment by one step (one full second) only. That means you will not be able to adjust stopwatch hand by using pushers on your watch as each push of the pusher will advance stopwatch hand for the full second, not the fifth or the tenth of the second, and the hand will stay slightly off anyway.
This happenened because the IC (integrated circuit) in your watch miscalculated the teeth count on chronograph wheel and stopped one or two teeth past or under the zero point. It doesn't happen very often, but in your case it did and the only solution is to find your nearest watch repair shop and ask for resetting stopwatch hand to zero.
This procedure needs partial disassembling of the watch and quite a great skill as the stopwatch hand must be removed and then refitted with great accuracy. All this needs to be done by very specialized tools as well.
I think this is the only solution of your problem unless you can live with that and just leave it as it is.

HOW USE TACHYMETER & WHAT TACHYME3TER MEANS


A Tachymeter helps you estimate the speed you are going.

It uses the basic formula that speed = Distance/time

Here is how to use it: (For the full article see the link below)

To use tachymeter, simply start the chronograph or stopwatch when the object measured passing the starting line. When the object reaches the next mile or kilometer marker, stop the chronograph or stopwatch. The point on the tachymeter scale that adjacent to the second hand of the watch indicating the speed (in miles per hour or kilometers per hour) of object traveling between the two points.

For example, we want to measure the average speed of a vehicle is moving. Start the chronometer or stopwatch function when the car passes the starting line, and stop the timer after the vehicle traveled exactly 1 mile or 1 kilometer. Then look at where the chronometer hand (the second hand of the watch) is pointing to, and get the reading or value of the corresponding number at the tachymeter bezel or dial. Let's say the stopwatch stop at 3 o'clock position, meaning 15 seconds had elapsed for the car to travel 1 mile or 1 kilometer. At 3 o'clock position, the tachymetre value shows that number of 240, which means the average speed of the vehicle was 240 mph or km/h.

My watch has had the battery changed and when you reset the stopwatch, the second hand and the small hour/minute hands no longer rests on 12. How do I reset these hands


I have the same problem with my Seiko Coutura Chronograph. Ever since battery was changed, the stopwatch resets to 32' 8" instead of 0'0". How to re-zero the hands?

Festina chronometer. The hand that shows .01 secs does not return to 12 o'clock position. I would like to reset it if it is possible to do it using the buttons.


In chronograph mode but not running use the top left button 1 press at a time to advance the hand to the 12 o'clock position. Then return to normal moe - job done.

Resetting stopwatch dials - Armani AR5331


When you reset the big seconds hand to zero, the hour and the minute hand are not engaged in this function, so, there is no fault with the watch movement.
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).

Rate me, please.

Tag Heuer Link, stopwatch seconds hand stops 2 seconds before 12


Pull crown out to position 2 [in between unscrewed (1) and pulled all the way out (3)].  Tap Button B (bottom) to reset by step back to zero.
Incidentally, Button A works Hours register in same manner for position 2.  You can similarly reset second and 1/10th with Buttons A and B, respectively, while in position 3.  Cheers!

Aquaswiss trax watch


AQUASWISS TRAX MODEL:

For clarity:
There are three adjustment knobs on the right side of the watch. Two are smaller than the main time adjustment knob. For clarification I will label:

Top knob: #1
Middle knob: #2
Bottom knob: #3

To adjust the stopwatch feature:

1. Turn #2 counter-clockwise until it pops out to its adjusting position.

2. Pull #2 towards the right until you feel the first click. (There are two click positions).

3. Simultaneously hold both #1 and #3 down until you see the 1/16 hand and the 30 minute hand rotate automatically to a fixed position.

Now you are ready to calibrate the stopwatch feature.

4. Click mulitiple times on #3 and you will see the 30 min. had move clock wise incrementally with every click. Keep clicking on #3 until the 30 min. hand reaches its apex (to its 12:00 position).

5. Now click multiple times on #1 and you will see the 1/16th hand move in very small increments clockwise. You may be bold and try to hold down #1 and let it swing as close as possible to the 12:00 position and then multiple click #1 to get it precisely to its apex.

You are almost done.

6. Now simultaneously hold #1 and #3 until you see both the 1/16th second hand and the 30 minute hands auto-rotate clockwise to their respective 12:00 positions.

Fantastic! However, now you have to return the watch back to its original locked position. This is where it could get a little tricky.

7. Make sure the time is correct. Using #2 fully extended to its 2nd click position you may adjust the time.

8. Using #2 extended to its 1st click position you may adjust the date. (Here's the trick, do not set the date for today's date. Rather, set it for the day before or in some cases, 2 days before. I will explain in a moment).

9. Now, depress #2 fully back towards the main body of the watch as best as possible and while holding down #2 turn it clockwise until it locks into position.

During this operation you may notice that the date will go forward until the watch locks into position, ergo, I had to make sure the date was for the day before...and it some cases, 2 days before.

Your watch is ready to use.

The stopwatch feature for this analog watch works very similarly to that of an actual stopwatch.

Press and hold #1 once to stop the 1/16 hand. Press and hold #3 to have both the 1/16th second hand and the 30 minute hands return to their 12:00 positions. Now you are ready to race!

Press #1 to start the stopwatch. Press #1 to stop the stopwatch. Press #3 to return the hands back to their respective positions. You may even press #3 after you press #1 to get a second reading but I will let you figure that out for yourself.

Hope this was helpful!
