Seiko Chronograph 7T32 minute hand inactive after battery replace

The darndest thing, after battery replacement, it does not want to count up the minutes, remaining in the 30 position (straight up). At the Seiko support page - http://www.seikousa.com/pdf/SDW_Series.pdf - a brief overview of setting the alarm, resetting second hand... but no advice on getting the minute hand to count up.

The watch wasn't jostled or gnarled on - the minute function simply doesn't work anymore. Would be willing to DIY if it's a simple procedure.

Thanks in advance!

You often need to do a full reset on 7T32s (& other seikos) after a battery change. there is a small reset contact in the rear of the movement which needs to be shorted to the top of the battery (the movement is engraved with wording to this effect, something like "AC reset", I can't remember exactly). you might also try pulling out the crown all the way (2 clicks) then holding both upper pushers in for a few seconds. it's unlikely to be a buggered motor unless it's one of the subdials that's failed.

    OMG! I have had the same problem with my Seiko Coutura stop watch stopping about 7 seconds after the 12:00 position. I found that if I push the crown all the way in, and hold just the lower button, it allows the second hand to move. You release it wherever you want it to stop and it now stays and resets back to there when I use the stop watch. Thanks for the ideas!

Hello. I have a Seiko 7t62 ojpo chronograph. The small second hand will run for about 20 minutes then stops. As a result, the main minute and hour hands stop working. Everything else works. Any ideas?


You have a fairly premium watch and some versions are more premium than others. Your watch clearly needs attention and that should be entrusted to a Seiko dealer or to the manufacturer. Once the case has been opened the sealing must be retested to ensure it meets specification. If this isn't done as part of the repair or service or battery fitting there is little point in having a watch with such a high specification.

The chronograph second hand now resets to the 5 O-Clock position?


I have found instructions that tell you how to reset the hands but there are several buttons on your watch and to avoid confusion you really need to see a diagram.

You can do this by going to the Seiko web site (seiko.com), click on "support", then "instruction booklets".

Scroll down the next page and you will see a list of the watches made by Seiko. Select yours and download.

Go to page 16.

I have a seiko chronograph sports 150 watch; had the battery changed a few day ago and just noticed that the second hand & stopwatch hands are not 'centered'. is ther a way to reset this ? cheers


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.

Seiko chronograph alarm


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.
