Re: second hand stops.
If you want to do it yourself you have to get the movement out first. When its done, take tweezers and carefully lift the seconds hand by the pointed end. Hand is made of flexible material and will not brake if lifted just a tiny bit.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Press the centre pusher (T). The watch should beep once.
Touch the centre of the touch-sensitive face until opt appears, in opt select 24H Cm (or 12H Fft or 24H Fft or 12H Cm) is shown in the digital LCD display.
Press and hold the centre pusher (T) for approximately 5 seconds. The watch will beep once and then again, a second time, after 5 seconds have passed. After the second beep, the digital LCD display should read SYNCHRO. If not, return to step one.
Press the upper pusher (+) to advance the hour hand until it is positioned exactly at 12:00. (PH press T button to to switch to minute hand adjust)
Press the lower pusher (-) to advance the minute hand until it is also positioned exactly at 12:00.
When both hands are aligned together and pointing directly at 12:00, press the centre pusher (T) to save the setting. The hands of the watch are now synchronized
mcdevito75 here, Sounds like your Guess watch neds some service, cleaning, oil etc. You can check with the repairservice directory right here at fixya, bottom of this page click on repair service directory then watches.
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.
Sometimes a watch will be off center due to shock, dead battery etc. Symptoms are; hands don’t line up, digital and analog time doesn’t match, Compass function doesn’t have the hands exactly opposite etc. This can all be fixed. The Synchronization function can be used:
1. Activate Crystal 2. Tap center until you are the unit’s screen (12h or 24h, F ft or C m). 3. Push and hold (at least five seconds) the center crown 4. Watch will beep and word (SYNCHRO) will appear in the display. 5. Use the top + button to line up the minute hand right on the 12. 6. Use the bottom – button to line up the hour hand right on the 12. 7. When finished, press crown and you will go back to time.
To reset the stop watch unscrew the stem and pull it out 1 click. Then press the buttom to the top of the stem and it will move the minute stop watch 1 minute continue to press to get it set to 12. Do the same with the bottom button to get the second hand stop watch to 12.
If you are sure the hands are not touching as they pass, perhaps the minute hand and hour hand are binding together at the hub. Try this: Gently pull on the minute hand by gripping its hub with the nails of your finger and thumb. It should slide forward a little (or come off). Also the same for the hour hand, to ensure it is not binding on the face of the dial.
I don't know the particular clock, but if it has a SECONDS hand, this is often the one that needs to be freed.
If all the hands are free, all should be good. If it has a seconds hand and the clock stops when this hand is going "uphill", try a fresh battery. If this doesn't fix it, remove the seconds hand and use the clock without it. Or you could try to counterbalance the hand by adding a little weight to the opposite side... this could work, but as it increases the mass of the hand also, it still might be a problem.
Another way might be to shorten the seconds hand..!
Got the same problem guys. i have one of the new electronic diving eco drives.
First time i managed to get it going again, by forcing all the hands to the top for diving mode, then back to normal, this action ´nudged´the minute hand back into motion, but a little later it stuck again at the same spot.
I guess mines going back to the factory, and i´m gonna b watchless for a few weeks :(
