How do I reset the millisecond hand used in the stop watch function on my nixon Ride SS watch?

I just reset the chronograph second hand to the 12 at the top of the dial but now in the small dial directly under the 12 which counts milliseconds as the stop watch is started resets every time to a little past the 1 on the dial opposed to the proper spot at the 0. How can I fix this?

Try this:
Resetting Chronograph Hands:
Note: Some Nixon watches come equipped with a "screw-down" crown; the crown must be unscrewed by turning it counterclockwise before it can be pulled out)
1. Pull the crown all the way out to position 2.
2. Push the crown in slightly to position 1.
3. Push top pusher button to advance the second hand to line up with the 12:00 position
4. Push the crown back in. (Make sure it is screwed in if it is a screw crown)

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.

Check in the instructions if there is a way to re-sync the hands. For some models of watches the hands are able to be calibrated.

It is also possible that the watch has a problem. Either the dial hand is not properly seated on to its axel, or the drive gear that is under the axel skipped a tooth. You will have to find someone who can service watches to fix this for you.

No need to go to the shop as you can reset chrono hand yourself. Read manual and follow instructions. If you don't have manual, try this: Pull out crown and then push the button and hold it. If this does not work, try push and hold the button whilst other one is held pushed. In short terms - try to use as many different combinations as you can and you will find which way is right.

Please clarify use of the 3 smaller dials and how the hands to each are set and reset


The small bottom dial is seconds counter and there is no option to set or reset it as it is part of the main gear train - it just counts the seconds. Top right dial is 1/10 seconds counter and runs only when the chronograph function is engaged. One full circle indicates 1 second. Top left dial is 30 minutes counter and runs only when the chronograph function is engaged. One full circle indicates 30 minutes, two circles = 1 hour. The big centre seconds hand is actually Chronograph hand and runs only when the chrono function is engaged. So, the chronograph hand and two top dials works all together when chrono function is engaged. To start chrono: push upper button once. To stop chrono: push upper button again (once). To return all hands to zero: push lower button once. There is another option: if you already stopped chrono by pushing upper button, but want to continue counting without returning hands to zero, push the upper button once more and the counting will start from the point where it stopped. You can repeat this as many as you wish - it will count on and on, till you will stop it and reset to zero. Fine tuning of chrono hands can be made by pulling the crown half way out and while leaving in this position pushing and holding one of the push buttons (which one - depends on movement caliber). Watch has an tachymeter function as well (big inner ring). Learn how to use it by browsing through my Tips and Tricks- it is explained there. Rate me, please.

The second hand works great but when you hit reset it does not go to 12


Sir is it in its warranty period?
If yes then take it to the shop from where you purchased. And if nott then kindly change your watch.

Stopping after 12 or 24 hours


Read your manual carefully and you will notice that the big, tall seconds hand is part of chronograph function. So, by pushing upper button you are actually engaging chronograph. This puts more strain on movement gears and consumes more battery power. When your watch is in normal timekeeping mode, the small seconds hand is counting seconds, not the big one which should be steady pointed at 12. I would recommend to put a new battery in your watch, reset it and start using it as described in users manual. You can download users manual here: http://www.oakley.com/customer-care/support/watches
Rate me, plz.

Cant set the second hand to move


The "second" hand on this watch is not actually a 'sweep' second hand, as on other watches.
This is a timer dial. ["Stopwatch 1/5 Second Hand"]
To start/stop this, use the top button (Button "A").
To reset this dial to 12 O'clock, use Button "B", after first stopping it with Button "A".
The "second" hand is the small dial at the 9 O'clock position.
In actuality, you 'could' start this and just not stop it...  Then it would function as a "large second hand". That would be up to the owner. (it might use more battery power though... ?)

HI, i have a gucci watch YA077310 and i dont know how to set it. also the second hand does not work.


To set the time, you normally pull out the crown and rotate it. The main (large) second hand is associated with the chronograph function so is stopped at 12 when no using chronograph. There should be a little second hand in a little round area on dial that is moving.
