Question about Pulsar Watches

Pulsar V145 runs very fast in sunlight

My pulsar V145 OC10 Titanium watch was obtained second hand, history unknown. It was stopped so I placed it in light. At first it was slow to start up, then gained a bit of time. Gradually settling down until it is accurate indoors but if I wear it outdoors, it can gain about 15 minutes a day! The more light - the faster it goes. Can someone give me a clue as to the problem please? Thanks in anticipation Rob

D you mean battery drain, not gain? Possible other causes are: Maybe you got an old battery put in, this does happen sometimes. Or, maybe the lubricants have dried out causing the gears to get sticky/gummy and causing excessive battery drain. I use an instrument than spin the movement and loosen up sticky gears after using a spray cleaner.

SOURCE: Sweep 2nd hand operation & watch time setting on my Pulsar watch.

The larger second hand on the Pulsar PF8036 is part of the stopwatch feature. The upper button starts/stops the stopwatch feature, and the lower button operates the lap/reset function. Why they made the larger hand work only with the stopwatch instead of the smaller hand to the left is beyond me, but that's how it is designed.

SOURCE: watch running fast about 5

mcdevito75 here, Depending on how new your IWC watch is, without running at all can be bad in the way that the oil in the movement can settle and more or less drain off the moveing parts, and without the oil distributed thru out the movement, your watch could run a bit fast. Re--starting your watch as you"ve done will help, re-distribute the oil, in the mean time switch your watches position on your wrist every couple of hours, crystal on top of wrist, then 2--3 hours later crystal turnned under the wrist, it may take a day or two for the condition to correct itself, if I'm right. Hopefully you have a warrantee with IWC on your watch. Hope this helps.

Click on the crown (the stem in the middle on the right side). There are three settings, and one of them will change the minute hands' behavior to normal. You might also check out this guide:

Pulsar Chronograph 100 m - The second hand on the left small dial (not the sweep second hand of the stop watch) has begun moving erratically. It appears to move for two counts and pause for three and then...


If your watch is solar powered the second hand performs this characteristic when it's in need of a charge. Try placing your time piece under a bright light for short time or in direct sunlight and see if this helps you with your problem.

I need a manual for a Pulsar watch calibur #7T62


Pulsar are made by Seiko and support can be obtained from their web site. (The number your quoted is a Seiko number- all Pulsar models seem to start with two or three letters).

Put "www.seiko.co.uk/support/instructionbooklets" into you search engine and you should come to the Seiko instructions list. Scroll down to find your watch and download the instructions.

The timer on Pulsar watch does not line up at 12 when reset.


To set the timer hand on these models of Pulsar watches, do the following: 
Looking at the face of the watch, there are two buttons and a crown on the right side. The TOP button is Button "A". - The BOTTOM button is Button "B".
There are 3 positions on the crown: IN (#1), FIRST CLICK (#2) & SECOND CLICK (#3).
First, pull the crown out to the second 'click' position (#3) ... This is all the way out. (STOP THERE! Pulling harder will harm your watch! Don't try to pull past position #3!)
Push and hold Button "A" for two (2) seconds. The dial will sweep around to the 12 O'clock position. You can advance the timer while the crown is in position #3 (second click out) to reset it back to the default position. 
The manual says that if you pull the crown out to position #3 while the timer is measuring, the hand will reset back to the 12 o'clock position... I haven't tried that, so I can't confirm.

How do I set the Pulsar Alarm-Chronograph N944-6A00


Short answer: You download the Operational Guide from Pulsar:

http://www.pulsarwatches.com/home2.asp#FAQ (look for N944 which is PGC series).

Longer answer: It is baffling to do this without the manual. You put the watch in -0- mode (crown fully in), pull the crown out to first stop, then us the A and B buttons to zero the 1/10th and second hands, then pull the crown out to second stop, then use the A and B buttons to zero the minute and hour hands. Then, you put the watch in "Time" mode (crown fully in), pull the crown out to the second position, and use the A and B buttons to set the time. You have no functioning second hand except for the stopwatch - in Time mode it acts as the calendar hand.

The hour & minute hands on my pulsar nx14-x001 do not move. the second hand quivers, but also does not move. the digital time and other functions are okay. HELP!


Without knowing the model of the watch i would say you need a new battery. It is typical for this style of watch to have two batteries or one lithium battery. In either case the analog movement will drain faster than the digital portion of the watch and will stop working first.

My Pulsar 4005's second hand twitches and stays in place, which throws off timing. Can I fix it, and how?


If your watch is still running acording to hrs and mins then the second hand must be slipping so would need to be attended to by removing the module, In some watches the second hand appears to twitch because the battery has become too flat so maybe the battery needs to be replaced.
