How do I reset my Sekonda 3850 Stopwatch Dials as every time I try the bottom one refuses to reset to 12 o clock position and instead goes to about 8 minutes past the hour.

Well the main problem is that the buttons on the watch have stopped working to an extent or at least the one to zero the stopwatch has

SOURCE: Resetting stopwatch dials - Armani AR5331

When you reset the big seconds hand to zero, the hour and the minute hand are not engaged in this function, so, there is no fault with the watch movement.
Do as follows:
1) pull out crown and set the hour and minute hands at 6 o'clock (they must be lined perfectly in opposite directions)
2) push the crown in half way back (not completely)
3) push and hold the button at 2 o'clock (set the big seconds hand to zero) and release it when done
4) when big seconds hand is zeroed push the crown back in
5) pull the crown out again and set desired time
6) push the crown back in.
If all actions described do not work, you will have to visit your nearest watch repair shop and ask to refit chronograph hand as in this case it is out of balance (not pointed at exact mark).

Rate me, please.

SOURCE: Bulova 96R31 keeps time + date, but the chronograph does not work

The problem is in chronograph module or related gear train. To find what exactly the problem is, special tools and equipment is needed as well as watchmakers knowledge and skill. There may be just an underpowered battery, but according to your explanation, I tend to think that the first causes mentioned by me are the right ones. Visit your nearest watch repair shop and ask to check your watch for any faults. Rate me, please.

Let the 3 buttons on the left hand side be labelled A, B and C from top to bottom.

Hold C for 3 second until it beeps and display flashed.

Press B to move to whatever you need changing (e.g. hour, day, area)

Press A to change.

I have model fs-2919 would like to know what the other dials are for i dont have the booklet thanks for your help


The three small dials on this watch are all part of a "stopwatch" system. The small dial at the 12 o'clock is for tenths of a second( each half circle completed is one second or 1 whole rotation equals 2 seconds.) the small dial at the 6 o'clock counts a full 60 seconds for each revolution, and the dial at the 9 o'clock counts minutes(one full circle equaling an hour.) when the stop watch is started the 12 o'clock and 6 o'clock dials will start at the same time. you will notice that every half turn on the top dial equals one "tick" on the bottom dial. After the first minute of timing the top dial will stop ticking as it is for more precise timing of things that take less than 1 minute. each full rotation of the bottom dial will then equate to one "tick" of the 9 o'clock dial. hence the three dials counting tenths of a second, seconds and minutes. the setting of these dials is fairly easy once you understand the purpose. on the side of the watch there are two buttons(one top and one bottom) with a setting wheel in the center. When in use the top button starts and stops the stopwatch and the bottom button resets the counters. To set the watch simply pull the center wheel away from the watch all the way(2 clicks) set your minute hand and hour hand and then tap the bottom button repeatedly until the small dials all line up straight up. once that is done push the center wheel button halfway into the watch or one click to set the date. then simply push the wheel the rest of the way in and voila!!! hope this answers some questions

I have a Victorinox ST1500. Since fitting a new battery when I reset the dials they no longer go back to the zero/12oclock position.


I can find no manual for this watch, so can only offer a general solution. With this type of watch there is usually a means of setting the dials to 'home' position. Reset the dials, then pull out the crown (this may have 1 or 2 different positions) and try pressing each of the top and bottom buttons and see if the 'dials' move. Sometimes, some are set with the crown in one position and others when it is in another position. Trial and error should allow you to set the dials to home position. Once you've done that, press the crown back in and retry the stopwatch.

Stopwatch min hand off center


The crown needs to be pulled out 1 time and then push the upper button to synch the hand if you have other dials then pull crown out 2 times and push the plungers on the top of the crown and bottom of the crown to synch the dials

I have a chronograph watch with a white and a red


The trick is to pull out the stem 2 times and use the plugers to adjust each of the dials. Some watches have 3 dials and you have to pull out the crown 1 time or click and use the plungers or buttons to adjust the other dials.

Try setting the crown to position 2 - i.e. the position normally used to adjust the date.  Then use the top and bottom stopwatch buttons to adjust the minute hand and 1/10th hand respectively.
