Question about Watches

2 Answers

2 watches, 2 questions. One runs fine, dial facing down, stops immediately when dial faces up.

The other runs for anywhere from seconds to a couple of hours max, then stops. Starts right up again with tapping or gentle shaking. Advice? Thanks in advance. [Edit: Don't know why this didn't show up originally, but both watches are Seiko 5, Cal. 7009. Thks again.]

What are the three little faces for? do not have instructions


Your watch is a chronograph or a watch that includes a stopwatch. Two of the three dials are for recording minutes and hours with the large sweep second hand recording seconds. Pushing the upper button starts and stops the stopwatch function. Pressing the lower resets everything to zero. The small bottome dial is the seconds hand for the watch, it always is moving.

Watch erratic. Slows suddenly between days of working well.


Sounds like a failing battery to me. Its very common for a watch to loose time when battery needs to be changed.

I just bought my wife a michele csx-36 watch. Its brand new. The watch runs for about one day then stops . What do you think it is. We did replace the battery already. Thanks


that happened to me too...the watch repair man told me that I had the stop watch on. The stop watch should serve as a stop watch, not the second hand. The second time on your watch is the small dial at the bottom middle of the face. Once I turned off the stop watch feature, my battery life is fine...I have not had to change my battery in over 2 years now. HOpe this helps.

I need instructions on setting the alarm for the Pulsar Chronograph 100M. I'm able to set everything else. Your response is greatly appreciated. THANKS!!


I answered this for different Fossil watch post, but I believe it will be the same for your watch.
I'll re-post the answer below.
------

To set the alarm on these models of Pulsar watches, do the following:
Looking at the face of the watch, there are two buttons and a crown on the right side. The TOP button is Button "A". - The BOTTOM button is Button "B".
There are 3 positions on the crown: IN (#0), FIRST CLICK (#1) & SECOND CLICK (#2). 
The small dials located at the bottom of the watch face (6 O'clock) are the alarm minute and hour dials.

First, pull the crown out to the second 'click' (position #2) ... This is all the way out. (STOP THERE! Pulling harder will harm your watch! Don't try to pull past position #2!)
Second, set the correct time. (plus one or two minutes... time to complete this.)
Third, with the crown still out to position #2, push button "B" (bottom) until the alarm minute and hour hands are set to the present time (same as the large dials).
Fourth, push the crown all the way in- to position #0.
The current time on the large dial should read the same as the small alarm 'time'. {This is the CURRENT TIME, not the alarm SOUND SET.}
To set the alarm SOUND time, pull the crown out to the first click (position #1).
Push button "B" until the dials of the alarm are at the time you want the alarm to sound... It can only be set within 12 hours! ... It does NOT know "am or pm".
When the desired time is set for the "alarm sound", push the crown all the way in (position #0).
The alarm dials will now indicate the time for your alarm to sound, NOT the current time. (this way, you know that the alarm is engaged.)
To reset the alarm- or disable it, pull the crown out to the first click (position #1) and hold button "B" down until the dials advance and stop at the current time... it will stop at the current time- then release button "B". --- Push the crown back in (position #0) and the alarm will now be disabled.

If the alarm dials are always moving and at the current time, you know that the alarm is disabled.
If the alarm dials are stationary and not moving with the time, you know that the alarm is engaged and set to the time shown.

I hope this helps.

Large second hand not running, Stop Watch function?


Hey, it sounds like your watch is just fine! A nice watch to inherit.
The small second hand on the sub-dial is your normal second hand.
The large second hand is the second timer for your chronograph feature.
It should only move when you hit the side buttons. One of them (usually the top plunger/ button) will start the Chrono timer and then hitting it again will stop it. The bottom button should reset the hand to the 12 o'clock/ zero marker.
If the large hand is not functioning at all then there may be something wrong with the watch; perhaps the buttons are not making full contact within the watch or the hand may be stuck and need repair.
Hope this answers your questions. Post more questions if need be.
Congrats on your new watch.

How to access older timex automatic watch second hand


You should be able to open the back by popping it off with a sharp knife blade. Sometimes, the lip where you'd open it is hard to see and usually under the band, between the lugs. The movement will just come out. If I read you right, you know how to do this, once the movement is removed. You can't just pull the hands off. Hopefully, you'll be able to just VERY EASILY bend the one that is causing the problem.

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.

I have a seiko flight watch, unknown of the model, second hand doesn't reset


I guess the blue faced SEIKO is a Flightmaster (Model: 7T92- OCFO)and it is a great watch. This is a common problem with most chronographs and this happens due to misalignment with usage.

All you need to do is pull out the locking crown all the way out (2nd Step) as if setting time. and then press and hold the top / left button and at first the milli seconds hand resets. after which you have to press the borrom / right button to move the seconds hand in to place. and then reset the time and lock the crown. You can repeat this for Milli Seconds, Seconds, Minutes & hours hands.
Hope this helps,
Krishna Chaitanya GT.
