You would have to remove the movement from the case, remove the hand and reinstall it, to where you want it.

SOURCE: minute hand and second hand

There is a tool available in the market to remove second hands.

If you have a watch screwdriver you can easily remove both the hands. Just keep the screwdriver in between minute hand and second hand and gently twist the screwdriver. But be careful, it may damage the dial.

SOURCE: Tissot PRS 200 hour and mnute hands not advancing.

I may not be clear on the problem here but it sounds like you may only need a battery change. If the battery is not the problem you can ask that your watch by placed on a cyclonic to force the gear train and free up small particle(s) that might be holding it up. This will be the fastest and least expensive. There is the chance this may require a more complicated repair but this till give you a starting point.
I suggest going to a watchmaker/technician who is familiar with working on this brand and be able to seal the watch back to its water resistant rating. This will take having a pressure chamber on site.

It could have 2 batteries! 1.5 volt for analog and lithium for digital! Take it to a reputable watch repair business and let them check! :-)

Good luck!

You should change the battery, it is the cheapest thing to try. The batteries can be very old before they are installed and could have been in the watch a long time before you got it.

If the battery had been replaced, the central timing hand defaults to the 10 minute position. If the battery had not been replaced, the central timing hand will return to the previously set position.

If the problem started immediately after you dropped it, then the impact is likely to have damaged it and a trip top the dealer is unavoidable.

Whatever the cause of your problem it is best left to watch repairer to sort it out.

I've recently found an old Elgin pocketwatch (Hunter Case, 1904?)


If you wish to return this watch to a working condition you need to find a skilled watch repairer who is willing to take on a challenge.

It could prove to be very expensive is parts have to be made to replace anything that is worn out or broken.

Good luck!

What are the 3 inner dials for? How do I set them?


one of them is the seconds hand of your watch, this sub dial will keep on moving even if the watch is not used as a stop watch. the other 2 sub dials are for the stop watch function. one is for tracking the minutes and the other is for hours. the big seconds hand will only work if you use the stop watch function. you can reset your stop watch to zero by pressing the pusher located at the 4 o,clock location of your watch.

Fossil ch 2470 watch. I have no idea what the extra little dials are for on the face and how to set them. Please help


The dials are part of a Chronograph (stop watch) I assume there is a second, minute, and maybe a date function. Usually the large second hand is part of the stop watch on only moves when you start the stopwatch (top right button) push again to stop and reset back too zero is the bottom button. Usually to set or zero out those dials pull out the crown to the first click (also sets date) then push the top button to set the seconds (big hand) and the bottom button to set the other. sometimes you may need to pull the crown out to the second click (also sets hour and minutes) to set add'l dials. This is generally how you set most chronograph watches the button you push and what moves may be different.
