SOURCE: Tag Heuer CA 1211-RO Min. Hand resets to 59 Min.

Unscrew the crown and pull out halfway. Use the stopwatch buttons to advance the hand to where you want it. Then push the crown back in and screw it down. You may need to pull the crown out all the way--I cannot recall which setting controls the minute hand and which the hour hand on the stopwatch function. This has to be done every time the battery is changed.

Enquire with either a Pulsar dealer or a watchmaker they may be able to get it for you. If you have a trade supplier near you they may also be able to order one if available.

SOURCE: eddie bauer watch runs slow

This usually means the battery is dying. Usually the backs on these are very tight, and the back has to be taken off to replace the battery. You might be able to get the back off without damaging the watch, but you probably will not get it back on without breaking the crystal. Best thing to do is take it to a reputable watch repair place or jewelry shop and have them replace the battery for you. Before they begin, make sure they are willing to replace the crystal for free for you if they break it!

Watch Manual for Sergio Valente model# F-IAGAG


These are operating instructions for an SV F-IAGAG (Sergio Valente) watch.

There are four buttons on the watch.

A: upper left
B: lower left
C: upper right
D: lower right

Pressing A turns on the watch face backlight.

Pressing B changes the mode.

From the normal time display mode, one press of B enters the stopwatch mode. In this mode, pressing C will start the stopwatch time count. Pressing C again will stop the count. Each additional press of C will start/stop the count. While the count is proceeding, pressing D will freeze the display of stopwatch time, yet the count will continue. Pressing D again will cause the display to begin updating with the running count. Each press of D will freeze/unfreeze the display update. When the count is stopped (with a press of C), pressing D will reset the count to zero. From this mode, press B again to return to time display mode.

From the normal time display mode, two presses of B enters the alarm time set mode. In this mode, either the hour or minute portion of the time display will be flashing. That which is flashing can be changed by pressing C. Pressing D will switch to the other portion (hours or minutes). Any time the alarm mode is entered and a change is made, the alarm is set to "on". This is indicated by a check mark in the circle display next to the "9" on the watch face. The alarm can be toggled "on" and "off" from the normal time display mode by holding down button D and pressing button C. Return to the normal time display mode by pressing button B while in the alarm time set mode.

From the normal time display mode, three presses of B enters the time set mode. Upon first entering this mode, the seconds display in the circle near the watch face "3" will be flashing. Pressing button C will reset the seconds to zero. Each press of the D button will advance to a different value field for adjustment. The field of adjustment will be flashing. The sequence of fields is (seconds - minutes - hours - date day - date month - date day). Pressing C will change the value. When adjusting the hours, both 24hr format, and 12hr AM/PM format is available. Each press of button C will advance the hour value. The sequence of 24hr format will be indicated with an "H" in the "seconds" circle (near the watch face "3"). After hour value 24 of the 24hr format, the next hour is a "12" value, with an "A" in the seconds circle. Twelve presses of button C will step through the AM hour values and present an "12" value with a "P" in the seconds circle. Twelve more presses advances through the PM hour values and returns to the 24hr format. Pressing button B will return to time display mode.

Pressing button C while holding down button D will toggle the alarm "on/off" state. The "on" state is indicated with a check mark in the display circle next to the "9" on the watch face.

HOW TO SET NEW PIRELLI YACHT TIMER WATCH? MANUAL NOT SENT WITH WATCH. IS THERE A FREE MANUL POSTED ON INTERNET? MODEL 41008, S# 7951903215 Many thanks for the help.


This information comes from the movement manufacture and helps figure out what does what. I also have a yacht timer with no instructions.....hope this helps

A combination of design and technology, ISA 8270 is a precise racing timer developed especially for yachting races, displaying count-down during regatta departures with audible signals, followed by cumulated time during races. The dimensions (25.60mm, H 4.60mm) offer a large variety of opportunities for watch designs. It is suitable for the manufacture of models for gents and ladies watches.

This new calibre is an analogue quartz timer fitted with an alarm function. It displays the hours, minutes, seconds (small jumping seconds at 2 o’clock counter), and date shown by a date window at 6 o’clock. In addition, it allows count-down and race timing. The small hand at 10 o’clock counter and the central hand facilitate the display of count-down and time measurement clearly visible.

Count-down, Racing Timer and Alarm features

ISA 8270 yachting movement not only provides the traditional count-down at 10, 6 and 5 minutes, but also the versatility of setting count-downs at any minute from 10 to 1 minute.

One special feature is that it allows the possibility of recalibrating the count-down at every minute up to the last minute before departure. This latter function allows the navigators to readjust the watch at any time during the count-down to the closest full minute in order to be in line with the official procedure announced by the racing committee (RC) boat so as to get off the best possible start. Audible signals are emitted every minute to alert the progress of count-down. To give higher accuracy, every-second audible signals are emitted during the last 10 seconds count-down to ensure knife-sharp precision. Immediately after the departure, the count-down automatically shifts to the racing timer mode to measure the time of the race event for a maximum of 96 hours. Setting, start/stop and recalibration of count-down and race timing are facilitated by the pushers (at 2 o’clock and 4 o’clock), which are easier to operate.

Thanks to an oversized counter hand and a highly visible flange on the dial that our customers may design, the navigators can best monitor the time remaining before departure and during the entire procedure.

The alarm time is displayed in an analogue mode. Alarm start/stop is enabled by a pusher at 8 o’clock and is displayed by a central alarm hand (12 hours).

Superb performance

Born of precision, accuracy and innovation, ISA 8270 offers excellent quality and performance. Intended for yachting races, this movement gives answer to sports watches requiring indispensable qualities: strength, endurance, agility and outstanding speed.
When the trend of sportive and fashionable quartz watches prevails, this new Swiss Made ISA 8270 priced competitively with outstanding performance answers the expectations of an increasing market demand and customers, who wish to add a number of value-added exceptional designs to their next collections with strong sporting character.

Specifications
Calibre: ISA 8270 Yachting Movement
Size 11 1/2’’’
Swiss Made quartz movement, 9 jewels
