Vivani watch has multiple dials and buttons but no response

Vivani watch has three small dials on the main face. it also has three knobs on the outside. the center knob is clearly to set the time. the other 2 appear to be buttons but don't ''push in'' or turn. They seem to have no effect on the small dials. Are these buttons/dials supposed to 'work' or are they just cosmetic? if they should work, how?

Yeah I have the same kind of watch. The three small dials are ornamental and nothing more (this is obvious because their denominations are 60, 60, and 24, instead of something useful like 1-12 month, 1-31 for date, and 7 days of week). The extra two spring buttons are probably the same... nothing but ornamental. You could verify this by taking the back off the watch and seeing for yourself that they probably press nothing at all. Are simply there for maybe some other design where the case is uses,to illuminate the dial or other thing not on the watch. Vivani watches seem to be simple watches that are very ornamental and pretty (i.e., dress watches on the cheap) but completely lacking in features at all.).

How do I use a 3 dial chronological watch with one stem?


You can't. The stem is purely for adjusting the time and date. There are three other buttons, for start, stop, split time and reset.

Make and model of the watch please?

What are the three little faces for? do not have instructions


Your watch is a chronograph or a watch that includes a stopwatch. Two of the three dials are for recording minutes and hours with the large sweep second hand recording seconds. Pushing the upper button starts and stops the stopwatch function. Pressing the lower resets everything to zero. The small bottome dial is the seconds hand for the watch, it always is moving.

The watch as four buttons plus the main button the bevel rotates but how does it work, the watch itself keeps good time but the small dials do not move.


Usually this depends on the watch which you are referring to. Some watches just have the small dials as designs. What is the exact make and model of the watch? This will help me to determine if the dials are just meant for designs or not.
But the dials usually are meant for three things, the first which usually has 7 points indicate days of the week, second which has 30 points for the month and finally a third which has 60 points for seconds of a stopwatch.
Let me know the make and model to be able to diagnose the problem better.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

B.m.w. geneve 250 watch what are the four small dials for how to operate them denis


If it's the same watch I have, the four dials from right to left are day of week, hours left in the day, date 1-31, and possibly a chronograph (mine makes 2 revolutions/minute). On the case, there are three large knobs on the right and two small flush screw-like objects on left. The large knobs (top to bottom) are month selection, time set, and day of week select. Month and day can be selected by pushing the knob to the desired date. On the left, you will need a fine pen or stylus to press the center. Top to bottom, these two buttons control year and date selection.

I have a seiko chonograph couturo alarm. 100m


Many of the Seiko Chronographs have the same setting options (mine is the lightweight "Titanium Sports").

First off, the alarm dial must show the same time as the actual main dial. If not you must adjust this first.

Pull the knob at number 4 position on the watch face out, until you feel two distinct notches/clicks (around 0.5mm travel) and the alarm will make a shrill buzzing for about 1 second.

Now turn the #4 knob to move the small alarm dial at the #6, to be the same as the actual time displayed on the main face, and press the #4 knob fully back in. This sets the alarm and the main time to the same ....er....time. You do not need to do this again, unless you adjust for daylight saving times during summer/winter.

Now you can set the alarm chime point.

Pull the #4 knob out again, but just one click. You should hear one ping from the alarm. Now press the button at #8 position. It will move the small alarm hands by 1 minute intervals, and if you keep it held in, the dial spins around quickly. This allows you to adjust the time the alarm will chime.

When you've got the alarm time and it's chime point set, leave the #4 knob at one click out.

If you wish to switch the alarm off simply press the #4 knob back in, and the alarm dial will spin around to the same time as the main dial.To re-enable the alarm pull the #4 out one click again. It's quite simple once you get the hang of it.

I need instructions on setting the alarm for the Pulsar Chronograph 100M. I'm able to set everything else. Your response is greatly appreciated. THANKS!!


I answered this for different Fossil watch post, but I believe it will be the same for your watch.
I'll re-post the answer below.
------

To set the alarm 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 (#0), FIRST CLICK (#1) & SECOND CLICK (#2). 
The small dials located at the bottom of the watch face (6 O'clock) are the alarm minute and hour dials.

First, pull the crown out to the second 'click' (position #2) ... This is all the way out. (STOP THERE! Pulling harder will harm your watch! Don't try to pull past position #2!)
Second, set the correct time. (plus one or two minutes... time to complete this.)
Third, with the crown still out to position #2, push button "B" (bottom) until the alarm minute and hour hands are set to the present time (same as the large dials).
Fourth, push the crown all the way in- to position #0.
The current time on the large dial should read the same as the small alarm 'time'. {This is the CURRENT TIME, not the alarm SOUND SET.}
To set the alarm SOUND time, pull the crown out to the first click (position #1).
Push button "B" until the dials of the alarm are at the time you want the alarm to sound... It can only be set within 12 hours! ... It does NOT know "am or pm".
When the desired time is set for the "alarm sound", push the crown all the way in (position #0).
The alarm dials will now indicate the time for your alarm to sound, NOT the current time. (this way, you know that the alarm is engaged.)
To reset the alarm- or disable it, pull the crown out to the first click (position #1) and hold button "B" down until the dials advance and stop at the current time... it will stop at the current time- then release button "B". --- Push the crown back in (position #0) and the alarm will now be disabled.

If the alarm dials are always moving and at the current time, you know that the alarm is disabled.
If the alarm dials are stationary and not moving with the time, you know that the alarm is engaged and set to the time shown.

I hope this helps.

Using the stop watch feature


Dennis,
"Chronograph" is watch terminology for 'stop-watch'.
There are 3 small dials on the watch.  The main dial has a minute hand and an hour hand.  The big second hand on the main dial is not for the main time of the watch.  It is for measuring seconds for the stopwatch.
The 2 small dials at 10 o'clock and 2 o'clock will give you minutes and 1/10 of a seconds.  
There are 2 buttons on the side of the watch. Top Button:  Start/Stop Bottom Button: Reset
To set the chronograph to its default position, you would pull out the stem to the first position and push the buttons.  Also, pull the stem out further to the 2nd position and push the buttons.
