Pull out crown to the first click. Push and hold pushbutton at 2 o'clock till the seconds hand reaches desired position. Push the crown back. You may need to operate pushbutton at 4 o'clock instead of pushbuttton at 2. Try both.

Rate me, please.

On my new Victoronox 24332, the sweep hand for the stop watch does not reset to zero but rather to about 17 seconds past '12' O'clock. The split second hand also stops just past Zero on...


Follow the instructions on the following link. I believe it works on all or most Swiss quartz chronographs. Worked like a charm for my Mondaine and my Zodiac. Hope it works for you too.

I just bought the armani ar0142 but the second hand doesn't work. Is this normal?


Take closer look and you will notice the small seconds hand which should be working. The dig seconds hand actually is chronometer hand and will work only when the chronometer function is engaged. Push the top button once=chronometer will start. Push the top button once more=chronometer will stop. Push the bottom button once=chronometer will return to zero. Rate me, please.

The small seconds hand do not stop because it has nothing to do with chronometer. It is ordinary seconds counter and will move independent of chronometer.Click on my profile (escapement), then click on Tips and Tricks. There you will find link to Tag Heuer watch manuals.

Chronometer won't start


Not sure this is worded right. A chronometer is watch that has been certified by a Swiss organization to keep time within a set +/- seconds per day in several positions and temperatures.

A chronograph on the other hand is a watch that has push buttons on the side for starting/stopping/resetting a set of hands to mark time elapsed.

If this is truly about a chronometer not starting it is either a broken part or needs cleaning.

If it is about the chronometer not starting most likely if it is a mechanical watch the pusher is stuck or broken or a lever is out of place or bent. If the whole watch does not run then it could be a broken mainspring.

If it is a quartz chronometer it could be a bad battery or if the battery has been changed it is most likely the person that changed the battery has damaged one of the coils and or circuit.

A qualified watchmaker can help with any of these problems.

Hope this helps,

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!

Luminox 8152 chrono


If you have your instruction manual it should tell you how to reset the chrono. i have the Luminox 8352 and it says to pull the crown out to the 3rd position. then press and hold both the start/stop and lap/reset buttons for a couple of seconds. you'll see the second hand rotate, then you can single click the start/stop button to manually move the second hand 1 second, or you can hold it and it will continue move for a longer period until time desired. if you need to adjust the other chrono hands, click the lap/reset button and then you can click the start/stop button again. repeat for the minute/hour chrono hand. when you're finished push the crown back in. it might work even though it's a different model, worth a shot? hope that helps. these are really great watches.
