Re: how to access older timex automatic watch second hand
You should be able to open the back by popping it off with a sharp knife blade. Sometimes, the lip where you'd open it is hard to see and usually under the band, between the lugs. The movement will just come out. If I read you right, you know how to do this, once the movement is removed. You can't just pull the hands off. Hopefully, you'll be able to just VERY EASILY bend the one that is causing the problem.

1Pinch the winding knob on the right side of the watch between your thumb and forefinger.
2 Pull the knob out from the watch slowly until it clicks into the first position.
3Turn the knob to move the hour and minute hand to set the time. Move the knob clockwise to move the settings forward and counterclockwise to move them backwards.
4 Pull the knob out further until it clicks into the second position. In the second position (the one furthest from the face), turn the knob to set the calendar, if your Indiglo has one. Turn the knob clockwise to move the settings forward and counterclockwise to move them backward. Push the knob back in to the watch face when you are done.
How to Set Digital Indigo Watches
1 Press the button on the lower right side of your Indiglo watch to unlock the mode function of the watch.
2 Press the button on the lower left side to move through the modes. Each time you are in a mode, the digital display will flash. For example, when the time display begins to flash, you are in the correct mode to set the time.
3 Change the time (or date) by pressing the button on the upper right side to advance the numbers or the button on the left side to move the numbers down. When you do this, you will be changing the first set of numbers (the hour or month, for instance); to change the minutes, press the button on the right side of the face until the second set of numbers is flashing and begin the process again.
4 Press the button on the lower left side of the watch to save your settings. The button on the upper left side of the watch is not used in this process--it is the switch to turn on your Indiglo light.
Your watch is a chronograph or a watch that includes a stopwatch. Two of the three dials are for recording minutes and hours with the large sweep second hand recording seconds. Pushing the upper button starts and stops the stopwatch function. Pressing the lower resets everything to zero. The small bottome dial is the seconds hand for the watch, it always is moving.
mcdevito75 here, Sounds like your Guess watch neds some service, cleaning, oil etc. You can check with the repairservice directory right here at fixya, bottom of this page click on repair service directory then watches.
Im sorry, but it is not that simple. You will need to take to watchmaker as they need to remove the whole inside of the watch to get to the face and that requires removing the dial also. No other way to do this. Sorry
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).
"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.
The dials are part of a Chronograph (stop watch) I assume there is a second, minute, and maybe a date function. Usually the large second hand is part of the stop watch on only moves when you start the stopwatch (top right button) push again to stop and reset back too zero is the bottom button. Usually to set or zero out those dials pull out the crown to the first click (also sets date) then push the top button to set the seconds (big hand) and the bottom button to set the other. sometimes you may need to pull the crown out to the second click (also sets hour and minutes) to set add'l dials.This is generally how you set most chronograph watches the button you push and what moves may be different.
