Invicta Model 2876 second hand

I recently purchased the Invicta Model 2876 watch. Once I had the watch adjust, I began to wear it. The second hand on the watch seems to have some sticking action between the 2 and 3. The hand will freeze, then move backwards, then forwards. This action will happen a few times a revolution. The watch actually loses a significant amount of time, at least 10 mins an hour. Any suggestions would help, thanks

This is most likely the "battery change indicated" feature of your watch.  Change the battery, and see if the problem goes away.  If it does not, then it could be a problem with the stepper motor, which will require a watchmaker.  Of course all of this is dependent on the assumption that your watch has a quartz movement.  If it is an automatic, or mechanical you have bigger problems.

There can be hundereds of causes why your watch isn't working properly, so, I'll not name them.
One is clear- without help of skilled watchmaker your watch will NEVER work properly.
NOTE: It may sound very strange, but mechanical watches do NOT like to be left without job.
Next time you decide to leave mechanical watch aside for long time- do not forget to wind it up once in a 2-3 days even if you are not wearing it.
This will help to prolong watch movements life and keep timekeeping steady and accurate.

You have tiny dirt particles in gear train or one of the gear wheel teeth is damaged. As a result of this the seconds hand is behaving erraticly when the damaged point on wheel reach the junction point with another gear wheel.
There is nothing you can do yourself. Find the nearest watchmsker and ask to overhaul your watch.

The second hand won't tick

On many Invicta watches, the large hand which points towards 12 o'clock is not a second hand. It is the hand used with the stopwatch function. If yours is a chronograph, the second hand, if there is one, may be one of the three small dials on the watch face. There are a number of movements used in Invicta watches and the operating instructions can differ from movement to movement. The battery also will be different depending on the movement.

Invicta Watch Setting Instructions By Ashley Brown eHow Contributor Found This Helpful A watch is only useful if it displays the correct time. Over time, your watch may display the incorrect time as the battery wears down. After installing a new battery, you will also need to reset the time. All Invicta watches have similar instructions for setting the time. Setting the time does not require any tools or equipment.

The seconds hand on my invicta subaqua reserve does not move. It only moves when I start the chronograph. I've read the instructions time after time and can not get it to work.

The hand that moves when the chronograph is working is not a second hand. It will rest at the 12 o'clock position unless you are using the stopwatch. If your Invicta has a second hand, it is one of those small dials on the watch face.

If hand winding does not work then try waving it gently from side to side for 100-200 times (yes! that is what some makers recommend).

Since self winding watches thrive on use, it is best to wear it daily to keep it functioning.

Watch has started

We had the same issue. Replaced new batteries etc. Since it was an expensive Invicta watch and less than a year old we assumed it was perfect. However, you need to take it into a upper end service center and have it "serviced" they will oil, align, etc and it will probably solve your issues.

The second hand on my invicta chronograph watch doesn't reset to zero

Easier than you think.
Pull your Crown out to the FIRST stop (were you would normally set your date). Push the "A" button (top chrono button) for your dial at the "3 oclock" area, Push the "B" button(bottom chron button) for the second hand.

I can't figure out how to adjust the offset chronograph

This is to adjust the seconds hand or minutes hand for the chronograph. Pull the crown out either one click or two ... depending on the models. Squeeze and hold the top and bottom buttons at the same time (timer stop and reset buttons). Hold down together for 2+ seconds. The chronograph hands should reset by spinning around and stopping at 0. If the don't stop right at zero, you can now adjust where they stop. Leave the crown where it is in that same position out. Press the top chronograph button and hold it down for fast movement or short presses for fine movement to adjust til it stops at the top. This will adjust where the seconds hand stops. Then click the bottom chrono button once. Repeat what you did with the top chrono button and it should allow you to fine tune the position for the next dial, and so on. When you are done, press the crown back in all the way to the normal position.

Invicta model 3209 watch

Your watch is fitted with chronograph movement 5040D made by Ronda (Switzerland). If you take a closer look, then you will realise that the subdial at 3 o'clock is counting seconds allready. This is your seconds dial, not the big one.
The big seconds hand actually is the chronograph hand (stopwatch) and, when activated, works together with 1/10th counter.
Follow this link and see for yourself:

Find movement 5040D and click on INTERACTIVE version.

Invicta Speedway 9223 not keeping time

It sounds to me as it is a quartz chronograph and it is right that the centre seconds hand moves only if the pushbutton is pressed. If you look close enough, you will notice that the small subdial finger is ticking and counting seconds. It is recommended to replace battery, as sometimes watches been laying in stores for a few years before selling and the battery is flat or underpowered.
