Resetting Chronograph Hands:
Note: Some Nixon watches come equipped with a "screw-down" crown; the crown must be unscrewed by turning it counterclockwise before it can be pulled out)
1. Pull the crown all the way out to position 2.
2. Push the crown in slightly to position 1.
3. Push top pusher button to advance the second hand to line up with the 12:00 position
4. Push the crown back in. (Make sure it is screwed in if it is a screw crown)
If your watch is changing date before midnight (12 hours earlier as it should) - Pull out crown and turn watch hands clockwise for exactly 12 hours and push crown back. If it changes the date after midnight (12 hours later as it should) - Pull out crown and turn watch hands anti-clockwise for exactly 12 hours and push crown back. Don't do it from 00:00 till 04:00.
Either the crown or the case tube threads are stripped. Which ever part is stripped needs to be replaced. Keep in mind that both could be the problem. Be sure you don't get your watch wet until this is fixed. Your watch is NOT sealed for water resistance if the crown does not screw down.

Your need the following tools to take out the crown...fix the hands and fix the hands.
1. Pointed Small Forcep
2. 7 or 8 no. small screw driver
You can these tools from a hardware store.
As this work is of high perecesion you need to be very careful and need high concentration.
As you have already opened the back cover of the watch you may find an arrow(--->) mark, when you press it and pull out the crown it may come out.
Now you can fix the hand by holding it by forcep and then setting it on the pinion(centre) of the dial or the position you want to fix.
In case of any difficulty you may take the watch to service centre.
