    Had the same problem. The seconds hand stopped at 3 minutes before 12 position.(new watch) After pulling the crown to the far end you have to press both stoppers at the same time first. Then adjust the seconds hand with the upper stopper. It works. Thanks for the initial solution, which helped a lot.I strongly recommed Luminox to mentioned this. It's not described in the manual.

    when using the stop watch function on chrono pro, the second hand stops at 2 o'clock instead of 12. I've tried every reset option does this need $400 fix that victorinox suggests?

That's easy. You need to calibrate it. In normal time mode, pull the crown out all the way and then use the pushers to step it back to the zero position. When finished, push the crown back in. You can also calibrate the sub-dails in a similar fashion.

This works fine on Diesel DZ4140. Pull the crown till the end, then press the chrono start/stop button and the chronograph moves one sec at a time. Set it to 12 o' clock and you're good to go.

Grand Carrera Chronograph Calibre 17 RS Seconds hand My GRAND CARRERA 17` HANDS RUNS FOR ABOUT 10 MINS BUT STOPS AT 12 in a cycle of 10 minutes but doesn't lose time. What is the solution if there b?


That sounds like it is on a chronograph split timing cycle. Read the manual and reset it.

When you hit the cancel or reset, all the hands will spin a circle and end up at 12.

Manuel for yacht timer 700 please. Best regards P.Hessner


Could not find a download for instructions on this watch, but I did manage to find some basic instructions for the Sector brand. I hope this helps as this is the best I can come up with.
Good luck.
Sector Chronograph Watch Instructions
  • Most chronograph watches have screw-down crowns for water resistance. You must unscrew the watch crown before you can make any changes to the watch time. After time is set screw the crown back in. To utilize the chronograph dials, use the buttons on the side of the watch. One button will be for the second timer. Press once for the second hand to start timing. Press again to stop it. Another button will be to reset the second hand timer back to zero. Sector Chronograph watches may have different dial functions (see link in References).
  • Sector Dual-Time Watch Instructions
  • Because Sector watches are known for their sports capabilities, the Dual-Time watches have screw-down crowns. For Dual-Time timepieces, unscrew the crown counterclockwise. Pull the crown to middle position to set the date. Pull the crown out to its fully extended position and rotate it to set the day of the week, hour and time. Press and hold in the crown and turn clockwise to seal the crown back in to the watch.
  • Sector Ana-Digi Watch Instructions
  • Sector Ana-Digi timepieces have analog hands plus digital timekeeping functionality. To set the time, unscrew the crown counterclockwise and then clockwise to the appropriate time. The digital functionalities are programmed by the buttons on the side of the case. Depending on the style of the Sector watch, you can set the digital time with one button, set the date display, 1/100 seconds chronograph timer, altimeter, thermometer and alarm functions.

    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.

    Need instructions on National Geographic Men's watch #NG010GYSK




    go to Buliva web site and look for the chorograph 561/598
    FEATURES
    1. Hours, minutes, seconds and date display.
    2. 60 minute Chronograph (CHRONO) with minutes and
    seconds display.
    3. 24 hour hand, permanently synchronized with the normal
    12 hour hand.
    A. SETTING THE TIME
    1. Pull the crown out to position “3” (See diagram). If the crown has
    a “screw-down” lock, then unscrew the crown lock first by turning
    the crown toward you, then pull it to position “3”. Do not forget to
    screw the crown back “IN” after all setting is completed.
    2. Turn the crown towards you (hands moves clockwise) until the
    date changes at approximately midnight.
    3. Continue turning the hour and minute hands to the correct time.
    If it is afternoon you must go past 12 o’clock again (noon) to set
    the correct time.
    4. When the correct time is set,push crown back to position “1”.
    B. SETTING THE DATE
    1. Pull crown to position “2”(See proceeding diagram).The watch
    will continue to run.
    2. Turn the crown away from you until the correct date appears.
    3. Once the date is set, push the crown back to position “1”.
    Note: Do NOT set the date between the hours of 8:00 PM and
    3:00 AM.This would not damage the watch,but the date may need
    to be reset later.
    C. CHRONOGRAPH (CHRONO) ADJUSTMENT
    If the chrongraph second hand is not positioned at the proper
    starting position (12 o’clock or “zero” position), use the below
    procedure.It does not need to be repeated unless the watch
    receives an impact sufficient to move the hand out of position, or
    the Battery has been changed.
    1. Pull crown out to position “3”.
    2. Push button “A” to move the Chrono Second hand (long hand) to
    the “0” or 12 o’clock position. Each button push will move the
    hand one step – BUT holding the button down will advance the
    hand rapidly.
    3. Push crown back to position “1”.
    D. USING THE CHRONOGRAPH (CHRONO)
    Note:
    The maximum chrono reading is 60 minutes, However the
    chrono will continue running once 60 minutes has passed. The
    resulting one hour periods may be added together mentally to keep
    track of longer periods.
    For example – If you know that approximately one hour has
    passed since you started the chronograph, and the chrono reads
    25 minutes, then you know that the chrono has been running 60
    minutes plus 25 minutes, which is one hour and 25 minutes.
    1. Push Button “A” to start the chronograph. Push button “A” again
    to stop the chronograph.
    2. Push button “B” to return the two chronograph hands to the
    “Zero” or starting point.
    3. The Chronograph can be stopped and started again
    (Button “A”), repeatedly, to “ADD” times together.
