SOURCE: Chronograph hand not resetting to 12 o'clock

don't know if you have this fixed or not yet, but this worked for me.

pull the crown all the way out. then press the chronograph start/stop button. the chronograph hand should tick forward every time (or every couple times) you press the button. I'm not sure if you go past 12 if you'll have to go all the way back around. but try not to.

anyways, when it's lined up, push the crown back in and then start the chronograph and let it go for at least a full minute. now when you press the chronograph reset button it should reset back to 12. hope this works!

SOURCE: MY Omega Speedmaster watch runs fast. How do I

Hi dgcgo. My advice, unless you're a watchmaker, is to take it to an authorised dealer or trusted watch repair shop, and get it done properly. The speed on automatic watches is adjusted by means of a tiny regulator, but the adjustments are minute and the watch is then usually bench-tested to make sure it is running ok. It's an expensive watch, so worth the effort, although if it's new, you can probably get it done under guarantee. Cheers; Eagle58

SOURCE: Second hand does not return to zero caliber 3606

Yes, this can be recalibrated from the outside. To get your chrono hands pointing in the right direction pull the crown out to the first position then click the plunger/ chrono button. This should move your chrono hand one click at a time to get it to the right place. If this does not work try pulling the crown out to 2nd position (all the way out) and try clicking the plunger as described above.
If this STILL does not work, which it should, then you'll need to go to an Omega dealer and have them take a look at it.

SOURCE: The chronograph second hand now resets to the 5 O-Clock position?

I have found instructions that tell you how to reset the hands but there are several buttons on your watch and to avoid confusion you really need to see a diagram.

You can do this by going to the Seiko web site (seiko.com), click on "support", then "instruction booklets".

Scroll down the next page and you will see a list of the watches made by Seiko. Select yours and download.

Go to page 16.

Lady's Omega De Ville Chronometer - has 3 small dials: what are they and how do I adjust them? Can I download a manual?


Hello Larry,

The push button at 2 o'clock is to start or stop the chronograph function and the push button at 4 o'clock is for resetting the chronograph.

The middle knob is used to adjust the time.

How do you reset the second hand so it sits at the 12 o clock position on an Ingersoll diamond automatic chronograph watch


I don't know if it's the same, but I just solved this problem on a Victorinox (Swiss Army) Chrono Classic XLS. The process involves:
1) Pulling the plunger out to position 3 2) Holding both buttons down for 2 seconds 3) When the hands stop moving press the top button. Each time it's pressed it will advance the second hand one tick. Keep tapping the top button until the second hand is in the 12 position. 4) Push the plunger in.

I have a police chronograph watch about a year old if that and the chronograph dials have reset themselves at random points does anyone know why and if so is there a fix? many thanks david


hi,
all you need to do is pull the centre bezel out (to where you adjust the time) and by pressing the top button the chronograph needle will move round. Once it is the correct place simply push the centre bezel back in.

Hope this helps.

Need instructions on National Geographic Men's watch #NG010GYSK




go to Buliva web site and look for the chorograph 561/598
FEATURES
1. Hours, minutes, seconds and date display.
2. 60 minute Chronograph (CHRONO) with minutes and
seconds display.
3. 24 hour hand, permanently synchronized with the normal
12 hour hand.
A. SETTING THE TIME
1. Pull the crown out to position “3” (See diagram). If the crown has
a “screw-down” lock, then unscrew the crown lock first by turning
the crown toward you, then pull it to position “3”. Do not forget to
screw the crown back “IN” after all setting is completed.
2. Turn the crown towards you (hands moves clockwise) until the
date changes at approximately midnight.
3. Continue turning the hour and minute hands to the correct time.
If it is afternoon you must go past 12 o’clock again (noon) to set
the correct time.
4. When the correct time is set,push crown back to position “1”.
B. SETTING THE DATE
1. Pull crown to position “2”(See proceeding diagram).The watch
will continue to run.
2. Turn the crown away from you until the correct date appears.
3. Once the date is set, push the crown back to position “1”.
Note: Do NOT set the date between the hours of 8:00 PM and
3:00 AM.This would not damage the watch,but the date may need
to be reset later.
C. CHRONOGRAPH (CHRONO) ADJUSTMENT
If the chrongraph second hand is not positioned at the proper
starting position (12 o’clock or “zero” position), use the below
procedure.It does not need to be repeated unless the watch
receives an impact sufficient to move the hand out of position, or
the Battery has been changed.
1. Pull crown out to position “3”.
2. Push button “A” to move the Chrono Second hand (long hand) to
the “0” or 12 o’clock position. Each button push will move the
hand one step – BUT holding the button down will advance the
hand rapidly.
3. Push crown back to position “1”.
D. USING THE CHRONOGRAPH (CHRONO)
Note:
The maximum chrono reading is 60 minutes, However the
chrono will continue running once 60 minutes has passed. The
resulting one hour periods may be added together mentally to keep
track of longer periods.
For example – If you know that approximately one hour has
passed since you started the chronograph, and the chrono reads
25 minutes, then you know that the chrono has been running 60
minutes plus 25 minutes, which is one hour and 25 minutes.
1. Push Button “A” to start the chronograph. Push button “A” again
to stop the chronograph.
2. Push button “B” to return the two chronograph hands to the
“Zero” or starting point.
3. The Chronograph can be stopped and started again
(Button “A”), repeatedly, to “ADD” times together.

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.
