My tag heuer 2000 chronograph professional button hard to press

My tag heuer 2000 chronograph professional start/stop button must be pressed really hard for it to work. But still works. Watch has received bumps and knocks over years of owning but the last one being 3-4 years ago and the button became hard only now.
Tag claims it is the dial which to replace puts me in the money of nearly buying another watch.
I was under the impression it could be a swollen seal.

Yes it would seem unlikely that the dial would cause this problem. It is more likely to be the seal if the pusher seems hard to depress. Watches should be serviced every two to three years at which time pusher seals are usually replaced. Recommend you take it to a watchmaker for a service to maintain the watch properly.

My previous Kirium F1 had this problem as well.. got it fixed by my watchmaker for a nominal fee (<USD40). Apparently, the push connector needed to be repaired. After the repair, it was "clicking" again and worked fine. However, the watchmaker did warn against pushing the buttons too hard. This is apparently a common problem for this model.

Try this.

Pull the winder out fully. Then press the top right chronograph button to move the centre seconds hand on. Then push the winder back in.

on some models you should only pull the winder half way out.

good luck

The chronograph hand of my TAG Formula1 starts at 2 seconds to 12 not at 12 o clock also after reset it stops at this point. What could be the problem?


If you pull out the crown to the first stop, then press the start/stop button that should move the second had on one second per press. The reset button moves one of the other dials. If you pull the crown out to the second stop, the start/stop moves the minute hand on, and the reset button moves the other small dial round.

Hi there i have bought a second hand tag heuer carrera tachymeter,i dont have a user manual,but cant seem to get the chronograph functions to work ?


Great watch! Operation should be pretty straight forward. The top button starts the chrono and stops it. The bottom button resets it. To calibrate the sweep arm into the right position pull the crown out to the first or second set position and press the start button until the sweep arm is in the start position you desire. This is typically 12:00 or 0.
If your chrono is not working then have the battery checked. If the battery has been recently replaced then make sure the watch doesn't need to be cleared.
I recommend you take this to a watch maker/technician who will be familiar with the service requirements of this model including resealing and pressure testing the watch to be sure it is sealed to its marked water resistance specifications.

Thanks!
