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.

Just had the battery replaced on my Wenger Swiss Army watch Model : 7987X/T. The red second needle is no longer moving.. its stuck on the 30 min mark. Watch works fine otherwise. Could not find any info...


If the second hand of your watch isn't moving, but the watch is otherwise keeping time, you most likely have one of two problems. The simpler to fix problem is that the second hand might have come loose from the post onto which it's been fitted. It's a simple friction fit, and a watch technician would simply remove the watch movement from the case and very (very!) gently push down on the seconds hand to re-seat it. If that's the problem, that's all there is to the repair.

A second potential cause for this behavior could be that a speck of dust or crud has gotten into the gears that operate the seconds hand, preventing it from moving. This can easily happen when changing a battery--many watches tend to get somewhat of a buildup of crud where the watch back meets the case. Especially with screw back cases, the process of loosening the back also loosens the crud layer, making it easy for little bits to fall in. If you do have crud in your movement, you're a bit limited in what you can do. Unlike old-time mechanical movements, very few quartz movements are made to be disassembled and cleaned. Instead, a watch repairer may be able to blow some air (not compressed air from a can--that will probably wreck your movement) to try to clear the gears. If that doesn't work, there is a little device that some watchmakers have that runs your watch at about 50 time as fast as normal. Spinning the gears like that can sometimes generate enough force to clear a blocked gear train. I have done this to resurrect several watches whose hands were stuck. However, I was still able to see the "pulse" of the second hand on those watches, even if the hand itself never moved forward.

I have a Swiss Legend Monte Carlo watch. All of a sudden, the watch's hour hand seems to be stuck at time 8:00 however the second hand still functions. Popping out and spinning the time-set will not...


It seems unlikely that there is any built in function that would cause the symptoms that you describe but it could be something simple like the hand being loose on its shaft.


Yor local jeweler should be able to fix that sort of thing.

I need to know how to set my 8700 calibre watch


Hi,here is a solution to help you out:
1. Pull the crown out one click.
A. Turn dial until function hand rests on "CAL"
2. Pull dial out one more click (should be all the way out)
A. hold down button "A" (top button) until the second hand completes one counter clockwise rotation (should be pointing at current month)
B. Press "A" button a second time and the Day/Leap year hand will move.
3. At this point spin the crown either backwards or forwards and watch as the Day/Leap year hand spins clockwise or counter-clockwise. The Date will adjust per each revolution.

However,you still have every reason to own the manual of your wrist watch for future references,so follow the link below to download the manual of your wrist watch;
http://www.citizenwatch.com/COA/English/settings.asp

There are so many aplications use of the manual will be manditory.

Use the numbers on the back of your watch and you will have a PDF version of your instruction manual.


Thanks and take care

How to change the date and week?


1. Pull the crown out one click.
A. Turn dial until function hand rests on "CAL"
2. Pull dial out one more click (should be all the way out)
A. hold down button "A" (top button) until the second hand completes one counter clockwise rotation (should be pointing at current month)
B. Press "A" button a second time and the Day/Leap year hand will move.
3. At this point spin the crown either backwards or forwards and watch as the Day/Leap year hand spins clockwise or counter-clockwise. The Date will adjust per each revolution.

Hope this helps as it took me using the correct movement number on the url in the previous post (for Calibre 8700 the movement number is "E870").

How do I cahge time on french tank


  1. click the top button to stop the second hand
  2. click the bottom button to reset the timer
  3. pull the crown out all the way
  4. twist the crown forward hard and fast for a few seconds. The minute hand will start advancing very quickly.
  5. when the desired date and time is reached, push the crown back in place. If you missed the time, pull the crown back out and twist backwards. The minute hand will move slowly in reverse. If you twist hard and fast, the minute hand will start spinning in reverse again.

Guess Watch's stop watch is broken?


it's not broken.

let's call the top stopwatch button "a" and the bottom stopwatch button "b." eg, for normal stop watch function press "a" to start timing, press "a" to stop timing, and press "b" to reset.

to reset: press button "a" and "b" simultaneously and release (an easy way to do this is press and hold down "b" then press "a" and release both). this will send both hands spinning. next press "a" intermittently until the second-hand is back to it's desired reset location. then, likewise, press "b" intermittently until the minute hand is zeroed. now with both hands at the correct reset location, again press and release "a" and "b" simultaneously to save these resets and return the watch to normal function mode.

Not sure what parts should be moving on new Fossil Me1020 watch.


I have a Fossil Twist ME1011, basically the same idea behind the one you have. What happens is there is a weighted third-circle that is in the back of the watch behind the battery (you can't see it) that spins a spring (the spring is the bottom seethrough part that ISN"T moving!) the spring then moved the UPPER seethrough part, which in turn spins the second hand!

IF the second hand stops working, carefully take the back off the watch and you'll see the weighted third-circle that I was talking about. It should spin, and in the middle there is a tiny flat head screw. The screw can get loose, so gently tighten it and the second hand should work again!

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.
