Hi, I got my watch today, have set the time and date, gone through all the features and everything seems to be fine, apart from one thing. The seconds hand does not move unless when using the stop watch, as in it isn't counting seconds unless activated when using the stop watch. the 60 second dial counts all the time...which is like their roles have reversed?! Can someone please tell me if there is something very obvious that I am missing. thanks

Re: seconds hand not moving
The roles haven't been reversed. The seconds hand for normal timekeeping is the small one and the chronograph timer seconds hand is the large one. The reason for that is that it is much easier to determine the precise second with the larger hand. It working exactly as it should. If you like having the large second hand moving all the time you will not hurt the watch by leaving it running. All chronographs work this way. Nice watch - wear it well!

the crown of the watch has two clicks, pull it gently once and you can set the date and day, pull it gently again a second time and you can set the time. The proper way to set the time and date is to set first the day,date late at the actual date, then move the hands around the clock until the date change at 12 oclock this is evening, then moving the hands around until you reach the actual time. By doing so you will set the day, date and time in syn to 24 hrs change.
example: you want to change it to sat 12th 11am
set the day and date to fri 11th
then move the hands around clockwise until the day and date change at 12 oclock continue moving the hands until you reach 11am
go to Buliva web site and look for the chorograph 561/598
1. Hours, minutes, seconds and date display.
2. 60 minute Chronograph (CHRONO) with minutes and
3. 24 hour hand, permanently synchronized with the normal
12 hour hand.
A. SETTING THE TIME
1. Pull the crown out to position “3” (See diagram). If the crown has
a “screw-down” lock, then unscrew the crown lock first by turning
the crown toward you, then pull it to position “3”. Do not forget to
screw the crown back “IN” after all setting is completed.
2. Turn the crown towards you (hands moves clockwise) until the
date changes at approximately midnight.
3. Continue turning the hour and minute hands to the correct time.
If it is afternoon you must go past 12 o’clock again (noon) to set
the correct time.
4. When the correct time is set,push crown back to position “1”.
B. SETTING THE DATE
1. Pull crown to position “2”(See proceeding diagram).The watch
will continue to run.
2. Turn the crown away from you until the correct date appears.
3. Once the date is set, push the crown back to position “1”.
Note: Do NOT set the date between the hours of 8:00 PM and
3:00 AM.This would not damage the watch,but the date may need
to be reset later.
C. CHRONOGRAPH (CHRONO) ADJUSTMENT
If the chrongraph second hand is not positioned at the proper
starting position (12 o’clock or “zero” position), use the below
procedure.It does not need to be repeated unless the watch
receives an impact sufficient to move the hand out of position, or
the Battery has been changed.
1. Pull crown out to position “3”.
2. Push button “A” to move the Chrono Second hand (long hand) to
the “0” or 12 o’clock position. Each button push will move the
hand one step – BUT holding the button down will advance the
3. Push crown back to position “1”.
D. USING THE CHRONOGRAPH (CHRONO)
Note: The maximum chrono reading is 60 minutes, However the
chrono will continue running once 60 minutes has passed. The
resulting one hour periods may be added together mentally to keep
track of longer periods.
For example – If you know that approximately one hour has
passed since you started the chronograph, and the chrono reads
25 minutes, then you know that the chrono has been running 60
minutes plus 25 minutes, which is one hour and 25 minutes.
1. Push Button “A” to start the chronograph. Push button “A” again
to stop the chronograph.
2. Push button “B” to return the two chronograph hands to the
“Zero” or starting point.
3. The Chronograph can be stopped and started again
(Button “A”), repeatedly, to “ADD” times together.

Watch Setting Guide
1) un-screw the pin by turning it towards you, until the spring pops it out. 2) pull the pin out to the next notch 3) turn the pin towards you and watch the date change (if the minute hand is moving when you turn the pin, you pulled out too far).
There are three adjustment knobs on the right side of the watch. Two are smaller than the main time adjustment knob. For clarification I will label:
Top knob: #1
Middle knob: #2
Bottom knob: #3
To adjust the stopwatch feature:
1. Turn #2 counter-clockwise until it pops out to its adjusting position.
2. Pull #2 towards the right until you feel the first click. (There are two click positions).
3. Simultaneously hold both #1 and #3 down until you see the 1/16 hand and the 30 minute hand rotate automatically to a fixed position.
Now you are ready to calibrate the stopwatch feature.
4. Click mulitiple times on #3 and you will see the 30 min. had move clock wise incrementally with every click. Keep clicking on #3 until the 30 min. hand reaches its apex (to its 12:00 position).
5. Now click multiple times on #1 and you will see the 1/16th hand move in very small increments clockwise. You may be bold and try to hold down #1 and let it swing as close as possible to the 12:00 position and then multiple click #1 to get it precisely to its apex.
You are almost done.
6. Now simultaneously hold #1 and #3 until you see both the 1/16th second hand and the 30 minute hands auto-rotate clockwise to their respective 12:00 positions.
Fantastic! However, now you have to return the watch back to its original locked position. This is where it could get a little tricky.
7. Make sure the time is correct. Using #2 fully extended to its 2nd click position you may adjust the time.
8. Using #2 extended to its 1st click position you may adjust the date. (Here's the trick, do not set the date for today's date. Rather, set it for the day before or in some cases, 2 days before. I will explain in a moment).
9. Now, depress #2 fully back towards the main body of the watch as best as possible and while holding down #2 turn it clockwise until it locks into position.
During this operation you may notice that the date will go forward until the watch locks into position, ergo, I had to make sure the date was for the day before...and it some cases, 2 days before.
Your watch is ready to use.
The stopwatch feature for this analog watch works very similarly to that of an actual stopwatch.
Press and hold #1 once to stop the 1/16 hand. Press and hold #3 to have both the 1/16th second hand and the 30 minute hands return to their 12:00 positions. Now you are ready to race!
Press #1 to start the stopwatch. Press #1 to stop the stopwatch. Press #3 to return the hands back to their respective positions. You may even press #3 after you press #1 to get a second reading but I will let you figure that out for yourself.
