Question about Raymond Weil W1

1 Answer

The yellow chronograph hand is set between the 11 and 12 instead on at the 12. The manual says to press a "Corrector" button (near number 8 on dial) however my watch does not have this button. How can I reset the yellow hand to align to 12 on the dial? Thanks

    Solution was to pull out the crown to second notch. Press the button at the top right to move hand to 12. Press crown in 1 notch the press bottom right button. Hand will now be aligned to number 12 on face of watch.

The instructions that you will find on their web site do not mention the button you describe.

Re-setting the hands is done by pressing the button B (4 o'clock). The instructions are a little ambiguous, so if this fails, then press button A to start and A again to Stop. Then try button B to re-set.

You appear to have the wrong instructions. A new set can be downloaded by going to their web site (www.raymond-weil.com), put your cursor over "customer care" and a drop down menu will appear. Select "instructions for use" and an index of watch types will be displayed. Download the one for your watch.

How can we set the chronograph dial


From time to time, chrono sub dial hands will be off. Solution is rather simple, pull out your crown and push either top and bottom button, each button will set certain hands on sub dials. This applies to both positions of crown (depending on complication & number of sub dials).

My analog stopwatch needle at 11 instead of 12o'clock


The procedure for the Classima Chronograph watch is different. You need to pull the dial all the way out, press on both buttons and hold for 5 sec, until the seconds dial makes a full cirlce (signalling that the chronograph is now ready for manual reset, then press the button on 2 o'clock until the seconds dial reaches the 12 o'clock position, then press button at 4 o'clock, to transfer control to the 1/10 dial, press button at 2 o'clock again a number of times until it resets to 0, then press 2 o'clock dial again to transfer control to the little hours dial, and press 4 o'clock button number of times until you reset this one to 0 too. Now just push back the dial crown to original position to close the operation. Viola

Pull out the crown and use either a combination or one of the cronograph buttons, this will allow you to adjust the hand positions

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.

Re-set quartz chronograph sweeping second hand


Easy Soultion worked for me. Believe Me I was worried only had the Seiko Sportura for a week now. My second dial for the stopwatch was re-setting to 5 seconds instead of zero. The Solution is
1. pull the Crown all the way out ( In the position you take the crown to set the time , second click ).
2. To set the minute face of stop watch , keep pressing the top button untill it is zero. To set the second needle to zero keep pressing the bottom button untill it reaches zero or where you like it to re-set each time. Depend on you.
3. Once all neddles of stopwatch are at resting postions ( usually zero) secure the crown back to its normal postion. Test your stop watch , hopefully it will go back to zero when you press the reset button. C

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.

Seiko chronograph alarm


Solution #3 (Posted by Guest on 5 Mar 08) is spot on. Quick and easy method to reset the chrono hands (it was not in my Seiko manual).
Interestingly, this can also be used to set the chrono ahead (or behind--with a little math) for offset timing measurements.
