### I have model fs-2919 would like to know what the other dials are for i dont have the booklet thanks for your help

The three small dials on this watch are all part of a "stopwatch" system. The small dial at the 12 o'clock is for tenths of a second( each half circle completed is one second or 1 whole rotation equals 2 seconds.) the small dial at the 6 o'clock counts a full 60 seconds for each revolution, and the dial at the 9 o'clock counts minutes(one full circle equaling an hour.) when the stop watch is started the 12 o'clock and 6 o'clock dials will start at the same time. you will notice that every half turn on the top dial equals one "tick" on the bottom dial. After the first minute of timing the top dial will stop ticking as it is for more precise timing of things that take less than 1 minute. each full rotation of the bottom dial will then equate to one "tick" of the 9 o'clock dial. hence the three dials counting tenths of a second, seconds and minutes. the setting of these dials is fairly easy once you understand the purpose. on the side of the watch there are two buttons(one top and one bottom) with a setting wheel in the center. When in use the top button starts and stops the stopwatch and the bottom button resets the counters. To set the watch simply pull the center wheel away from the watch all the way(2 clicks) set your minute hand and hour hand and then tap the bottom button repeatedly until the small dials all line up straight up. once that is done push the center wheel button halfway into the watch or one click to set the date. then simply push the wheel the rest of the way in and voila!!! hope this answers some questions

### Please clarify use of the 3 smaller dials and how the hands to each are set and reset

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. Rate me, please.

### I am wondering what is the bottom dial hand is for? The number on the case is JR-8675 then has BAW 250506 it has the main dial then three small dials one in the( day 45min )and one at (date15min) and one...

The subdial at 6 is ment to show you what part of the day it is. Example: if you are in Arctic, where the day or night can be a few months long, it would be very difficult to tell it's morning or evening, as the light conditions still the same in both cases. This small dial tells you exactly, because full day is divided to 24 hours and the hand of this subdial makes 1 full circle in 24 hrs.

### Just bought a Fossil FS4446 sports chrono but it looks like the hour on the chrono is stuck just after 19 on the small dial on the right i just want to check that this is indeed the hour dial. and if it...

The small dial on the right is 24 hour counter and it does one full circle in 24 hours. The purpose of this counter is to tell the wearer what part of day or night is exactly (p.m. or a.m.). There are some places on our planet where the night/day lasts for months and it would be difficult to realise it's morning or evening without 24 hour counter. Try to advance watch hands forward/backward for few hours and you will see this counter hand moving. If it does not move, your watch has faulty/broken wheel and needs to be sent back for replacement/repairs.

### My analog stopwatch needle at 11 instead of 12o'clock

The procedure for the Classima Chronograph watch is different. You need to pull the dial all the way out, press on both buttons and hold for 5 sec, until the seconds dial makes a full cirlce (signalling that the chronograph is now ready for manual reset, then press the button on 2 o'clock until the seconds dial reaches the 12 o'clock position, then press button at 4 o'clock, to transfer control to the 1/10 dial, press button at 2 o'clock again a number of times until it resets to 0, then press 2 o'clock dial again to transfer control to the little hours dial, and press 4 o'clock button number of times until you reset this one to 0 too. Now just push back the dial crown to original position to close the operation. Viola

### Anne Klein chronograph watch

The button advances the numeric day. After the numeric day is advanced one full month, the month dial advances to the next month. I just about got a blister pressing the button enough times to advance the month from January all the way around to December. Then I had to advance the numeric day to the current numeric day. The previous person told you by turning the dial 24 hours you can advance the alphabetic day of the week by one day (Sun, Mon,etc.).

### Trouble with Fossil ME1014

I looked at a picture of the watch. I see the date. the dial that is right below the hands is a moon dial which does the phases of the moon & below that you have a separate second hand. A lot of times on a watch that looks like that if you pull the crown where you set the watch with out half a click it will set the date if you turn it on way and the moon dial if you turn it the other way. To set the moon dial on the watch you need to put it on the full moon when the moon is full again then it will keep up with the phases of the moon. I hope this helps.
