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 alarm on model wau111a tag watch


  • Pull out the crown to the alarm setting position. The crown is located on the right side of the face of the watch. Pull the crown out until "AL", the alarm indicator, is shown on the watch. Depending upon the model of your Tag Heuer Aquaracer watch, you will either pull the crown out in the first or second position.
  • Select the hours and minuets for the alarm. Once your watch is in the alarm setting position, press the bottom right button on your watch. This will enable you to select the hours and minuets that you want to set the alarm for.
  • Set your alarm. To begin setting your alarm turn the crown clockwise until the desired hour or minutes are displayed on your Tag Heuer Aquaracer watch. If you happen to accidentally pass the alarm time, turn the crown counter-clockwise the get back to the desired alarm time.
  • Save your alarm. When you are ready to save your alarm, simply push in the crown. Once your alarm sounds, to silence it press any button on your Tag Heuer Aquaracer watch.

    How to reset the chrono function of a Tag Heuer Aquaracer Calibre S CAF7113.FT8010 after a battery change


    Pull the crown out to the first position, and then you may find that successive pushes of the upper pushbutton will move one of the chrono hands by one division, and the lower pushbutton will move a different chrono hand. Similarly if you pull the crown out to the second position, the pushbuttons will control the other chrono hands. In this way you can set each of the chrono hands to their zero positions. Hope this works..

    Set reserve indicator on invicta 6106


    Here is how to set the Invicta 6106 Invicta 6107 and other similar models with the ISASWISS 8173 movement with the following functions:
    TIME - DATE - DAY - ALARM - GMT - POWER RESERVE

    DO THINGS IN THIS ORDER AND YOU WILL FIND IT TO BE VERY EASY! After you understand how to set ALL the functions you can skip steps later to set individual functions but for now just do it exactly step by step:
    1. Unscrew the center crown (if it is a screw down crown) and pull it all the way out (this is position 2) and turn it until you see the DAY sub-dial at the 6:00 position set to the day BEFORE today. There is no QUICK SET for the day on this movement so you must just keep turning the crown and hour hand past 12 midnight and watch the day pointer until it gets to the day you want - the day BEFORE today.
    2. Now set the time to 6:00 (am or pm doesn't matter at this point). This is very important because you do not want the time to be between 9:00pm and 12:00pm when you set the date later on - we are using 6:00 just to be safe.
    3. Push the crown all the way in - you don't have to screw it down.
    4. Now pull out the crown very gently to the 1st position - just one "click" out. Now turn the crown AWAY from you to set the date to the date BEFORE today - this appears in the small window at the 4:00 position.
    5. Now pull the crown all the way out again to position 2 and turn it away from you until it goes past 12 midnight and TODAY's DAY AND DATE are showing and then adjust the hour and minute hands to the current time - be sure to set the hour to AM or PM and push the crown all the way in. If you wish to set the seconds exactly - with the crown pushed in watch until the small seconds hand in the sub-dial at 2:00 is exactly at 60 and then pull the crown out to Position 2. Set the time ahead a minute or so and push the crown in when the actual time is the time you have set - you can set it to atomic clock time on the internet or by another watch that sets itself to atomic time.
    6. Now the DAY, DATE and TIME are set to current. Now when the hour hand passes 12 at midnight tonight the DAY and DATE will advance correctly.

    YOU CAN STOP HERE IF YOU WISH - but you can continue on to set the ALARM and the GMT indicators as follows:

    7. To set the GMT hand (the one with the red-bordered pointer) the crown is pushed all the way in and screwed down. Now simply hold the bottom pusher in for a few seconds until you hear a beep - now you can start pushing it and watch the GMT hand moving - one push at a time for small adjustment or hold it down to make it move faster. When you stop pushing it another beep indicates that it is OUT of the setting mode - so if you want to adjust it again just hold it in until short beep and start pushing the lower pusher same as above.

    Understanding GMT (or second time zone): Note that the GMT hand time is indicated on the 24 hour dial (think in military time where 3:00AM is 0300 and 3:00PM is 1500) using the very small numbers around the very outside of the dial. When the local time is 3:00PM if GMT is adjusted for the SAME TIME ZONE as you are in now the GMT HAND will be pointing at the small "15" which is between the 7:00 and 8:00 hour markers. If the local time is 3:00AM and the GMT is adjusted for the SAME TIME ZONE as you are in now the GMT HAND will be pointing at the small "3" between the 1:00 and 2:00 hour markers. So lets say you are in Pacific Time Zone and it is now 3:00pm local time and showing on the minute and hour hands - and for example you want the GMT hand to show Eastern (New York) time which is 6:00pm (in military time that is 1800 indicated by the very small 18 which aligns with 9:00) - hold in the bottom pusher until you hear a beep - now start pushing it in short increments or hold it down to move it faster until it points to small 18 (large 9). Now the GMT will indicate the hour in the EASTERN time zone while the main hour hand indicates your local time.
    7. To set the ALARM - unscrew the crown and pull it to Position 1. Turn it TOWARDS you (if you turn it way from you will set the date which you don't want to do) and you will see the hand with the white pointer and the word "Alarm" in tiny writing on it move clockwise. Set the ALARM to the time you want. Push in the crown and screw it down.
    8. To activate the ALARM push the TOP PUSHER once - the small hand in the POWER RESERVE sub-dial will move slightly and then it will move again (give it a second or so) and you will hear a BEEP - now the alarm is activated and the small hand points to the "ON" label. When the alarm sounds if you wish to stop it push the top pusher. But it will stop on its own and then repeat a few minutes later - you can just leave it alone if you wish. Note that the Alarm will turn OFF after sounding - so if you want to wake up for work on time tomorrow be sure the ALARM indicator is pointing to "ON".
    9. To deactivate the ALARM when the small hand is pointing towards the "ON" label simply push the top pusher again and and the small hand will move clockwise down to the "OFF" label.
    10. POWER RESERVE sub-dial. To align the Power Reserve sub-dial hand (after battery change) pull the crown out to Position 1 and push the top pusher until the hand points to 0%. Push the crown back in and screw it down.
    11. Reserve Indicator - the instructions for this movement states that holding down the top pusher for 3 seconds will move the POWER RESERVE hand to the power reserve scale - but this is confusing because the hand never actually stays on the power reserve scale - it will only stay on "ON" or on "OFF".
    However - I believe that this is the way it works. When you push the top pusher with the small hand in the "OFF" position it will momentarily move to the power reserve scale and stop for a second before it moves again to "ON" - I believe that this reading indicates the POWER RESERVE just before it moves again to the "ON" position..

    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.
