I can find no manual for this watch, so can only offer a general solution. With this type of watch there is usually a means of setting the dials to 'home' position. Reset the dials, then pull out the crown (this may have 1 or 2 different positions) and try pressing each of the top and bottom buttons and see if the 'dials' move. Sometimes, some are set with the crown in one position and others when it is in another position. Trial and error should allow you to set the dials to home position. Once you've done that, press the crown back in and retry the stopwatch.

How do i change the time on the three small dials


Hello Garrett,

"Three small dials"... My guess is that we are talking
a chronometer... (stopwatch)... "ZERO Process".

Not only are the three sub-dials usually settable... but also the sweep second hand.

Trouble: After resetting the watch... the hands go back to the same position...

Solution: You want to "ZERO" your dials... one by one.

These watches typically need to have the stem out to the third position... then press the top "start" timer button... observe ONE of your dials is moving. As it approaches the desired number release the button and step it into position with single button pushes.

Go to the bottom "stop" button... Repeat the process!

Push the stem in to the middle "set" position...
Repeat the process!

Again... press the top "start" timer button... zero
and finally press the top "stop" timer button... and zero.

Set the time and date... push that stem back into the home position... and record 35 seconds on your watch... stop and reset...

If everything does not come back exactly to ZERO...

Then that is called an iterative process (do it again).

Fine tune it!

Good Job.

Pressing reset doesn't go to zero. sweep second hand goes to 57 seconds


Pull out the crown and use either a combination or one of the cronograph buttons, this will allow you to adjust the hand positions

Re-set quartz chronograph sweeping second hand


Easy Soultion worked for me. Believe Me I was worried only had the Seiko Sportura for a week now. My second dial for the stopwatch was re-setting to 5 seconds instead of zero. The Solution is
1. pull the Crown all the way out ( In the position you take the crown to set the time , second click ).
2. To set the minute face of stop watch , keep pressing the top button untill it is zero. To set the second needle to zero keep pressing the bottom button untill it reaches zero or where you like it to re-set each time. Depend on you.
3. Once all neddles of stopwatch are at resting postions ( usually zero) secure the crown back to its normal postion. Test your stop watch , hopefully it will go back to zero when you press the reset button. C

Glad to help. ashfaque.r@googlemail.com

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,

Reset Stopwatch Hands on CL1111 ?


Try setting the crown to position 2 - i.e. the position normally used to adjust the date.  Then use the top and bottom stopwatch buttons to adjust the minute hand and 1/10th hand respectively.
