I have a Fossil Speedway watch (FS2895). The second hand was on the 2, and I wanted it on the 12. Like the above suggestion says, pull out the winder twice as if you are going to reset the time. However, leave the winder alone after that and, instead, press and hold the chronograph start/stop button (above the winder) until the second hand reaches the desired position. If you want to move the hand a small bit at a time, just press and release that same button until the hand reaches the desired position.

Hi,

usually you pull out the winder, once for minutes and twice for seconds, or vice-versa.

I have a seiko chronograph sports 150 watch; had the battery changed a few day ago and just noticed that the second hand & stopwatch hands are not 'centered'. is ther a way to reset this ? cheers


As jimmyguru said.
1. Pull the crown to the second position (all the way out)
2. Push and hold the reset button and allow the chronograph hand to rotate near the 12 o'clock position.
3. Release the reset button.
4. Repeatedly push and release the reset button to find tune the hand position until it is right at 12 o'clock.
5. Push the crown back in.

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,
