Tag Heuer Aquaracer reset red hand

Hi,

I am trying to reset the red hand on my watch to the "12" position. The manual seems to refer to this as the GMT hand that indicates a second time zone. I know how to reset the 1/10 second hand and the second hand but I can not seem to find anyway of resetting the red hand on my chronograph. I do not see anything in the manual that explains how to do this. Any assistance you can offer would be much appreciated.

Very nice! I just had my battery changed by a jewelry shop in LA, and when I got it back the reset point for all the stopwatch functions were screwed up. the guy gave me a "not my problem" answer and I thought I'd have to send it in. thanks to this forum I got it figured out. thanks!!

The red hand is not for GMT on the chronograph model (the one with push-buttons above and below the crown) but for chronograph (stopwatch) seconds. It can be adjusted with the crown pulled out into either the first or second setting position- I forget which, you'll have to try each one out- and then pushing one of the buttons to advance it to zero (again, I forget which button, you'll need to try them both out). The small seconds sub-dial at the 6'oclock position is for constant seconds, not chronograph seconds, and cannot be set, but only stopped at whatever position you want and then restarted again, by pulling the crown all the way out to the second position, and then pushing it back in again at the right moment.

    Pull the crown out 1 level, bottom button then advances the red hand. Advance it to the position you want then push the crown in and tighten it.

You have to push the button repeatedly not hold it down or press it once as you would to get it to reset to 12.

There a four (4) setting positions using the two crowm positions and the two pushbuttons. The combination yields all four required settings in the rest position.
1. Seconds,2. Minutes, 3. hours, 4 1/10 second. Each press of a button, advances each dial (depending on the crown position and the button being pressed) by 1 second. Holding it in for 2 seconds, the hand runs continuously like a second hand. The manual is brief on reseting zero. I had the same problem and was getting a replacement watch, after just 2 days, really. When I accessed the FIXYA web-site and now DONE !!!

    THANKS! My chronograph is a TIMEX, but it works exactly the same way.

Unscrew the crown and try pressing the buttons...they'll adjust the hands. Note that there are two adjustment positions when you pull the crown out, so you'll have to figure out which one works.

SOURCE: Resetting GMT hand

I have CL1180 and had the same problem, pulling the winder out to position 2 (fully out) and using the buttons resets the second and 10th second hands and putting the winder in position1 and using the buttons does the same for the minute and hour hands. However finding position1 was tricky, only seems to work on the way out from fully home and not on the way back from pos 2.

Hope that helps.

How do i set the the 24 hour hand in a rolex 16758


Yours is the original GMT Master. The GMT Master II allows the GMT hand and the regular hour hand to be set differently but not on your older model. On yours, the regular hour hand the the GMT hand are fixed so that if the triangle on the rotating bezel is at the top, the GMT hand will indicate local time. To indicate time in a 2nd timezone, rotate the bezel to orient the time to the GMT hand. There's a copy of the original instructions posted at: http://www.rolexforums.com/showthread.php?t=45269

How to set and use the subdial on my invicta model 5749 gmt watch


While I'm not familiar with that particular model, most GMT hands are set by turning the crown "backwards" in the date setting position. IOW, if you set the date by pulling the crown out to the first detent and turning it clockwise, turning it counter-clockwise will set the GMT indicator.

The timer on Pulsar watch does not line up at 12 when reset.


To set the timer hand on these models of Pulsar watches, do the following: 
Looking at the face of the watch, there are two buttons and a crown on the right side. The TOP button is Button "A". - The BOTTOM button is Button "B".
There are 3 positions on the crown: IN (#1), FIRST CLICK (#2) & SECOND CLICK (#3).
First, pull the crown out to the second 'click' position (#3) ... This is all the way out. (STOP THERE! Pulling harder will harm your watch! Don't try to pull past position #3!)
Push and hold Button "A" for two (2) seconds. The dial will sweep around to the 12 O'clock position. You can advance the timer while the crown is in position #3 (second click out) to reset it back to the default position. 
The manual says that if you pull the crown out to position #3 while the timer is measuring, the hand will reset back to the 12 o'clock position... I haven't tried that, so I can't confirm.

I just purchased an Invicta Sea Wizard Chronograph Watch, and after taking it out of the box I noticed the large second hand does not move. The watch seems to keep time, but the scond hand is frozen in...


The large second hand is actually the GMT hand for a second time zone. The second hand is the small sub dial at the 2 o'clock position. The large hand with the red arrow is the alarm time.
