WHY DOESNT THE SECOND HAND MOVE?


It probably isn't the second hand, but the sweep timer hand that is only used in Chronograph mode. If it is indeed the small second hand down at the bottom of the watch face, try pulling the crown, and moving the hands and then depress the crown again.

Cant set the second hand to move


The "second" hand on this watch is not actually a 'sweep' second hand, as on other watches.
This is a timer dial. ["Stopwatch 1/5 Second Hand"]
To start/stop this, use the top button (Button "A").
To reset this dial to 12 O'clock, use Button "B", after first stopping it with Button "A".
The "second" hand is the small dial at the 9 O'clock position.
In actuality, you 'could' start this and just not stop it...  Then it would function as a "large second hand". That would be up to the owner. (it might use more battery power though... ?)

Second hand not sweeping but jumps at 5 secs intervals. Appears to be keeping accurate time.


When the second hand moves in short jumps rather than a smooth sweep or a second-by-second hop, it means that the battery is about to run out. Usually, with a week or two the watch will stop working altogether. You should go and have it changed as soon as possible.

SECOND HAND - INVICTA MODEL 2692


Hi Ed,

I have been in the industry for the past 2 years as a watchmaker's assistant. So I'll see if I can help.

The larger second hand you see in this Chronograph model, using it is only available in the Chronograph mode.

How long a battery should last (if I had a dollar for everytime I've heard that one! :)

Well generally a battery should last about 2 years. It all depends on how many functions that watch has, as for a chrono the more you use that function the more the battery power it uses. I have not seen this watch but as it looks to be the 'standard' kind of format of a chronograph, just one battery would surfice.

In regards to 1/10 lap, please take the to a watchmaker as the hands need to be reset, this either can be done manually or can be done by pulling out the crown slightly (please as if you are to forcefull you will pull the crown and stem out) NOT GOOD!. if you pull it out to 'quick date change' where only the date can be changed try pressing one of the pushers and see which sub dial hands move, if that doesn't work try the other pusher.

Again if the above doesn't work, pull the crown out to time set mode (where you can adjust the time) and try the same steps as above. If this fails and it's still off, take it to a watchmaker and he/she will realign the hands for you!

Kind Regards
Shenlun

Second hand sweeping five second increments


Yes, it is sign for time to replace the battery. Your watch is fitted with EOL (end of life) device. This device forces the integrated circuit board to move seconds hand in 2 - 5 seconds increments when the battery power level is less than necessary for smooth running of the watch movement. At the same time the timekeeping of the watch is not affected and it will still keep good time for about 2 weeks.
Rate me, please.

Second hand on my watch now goes in 5 second intervals


Check the instruction manual if you have one. Tag-Heuer watches move in 5 second intervals to let you know the battery needs replacing. A neat feature. Now you know that you have a real Tag!

Navy Seal Luminox watch second hand problem


It is a feature of this watch, it is referred to as the end of life (EOL) feature, it is a way of letting you know its time to change the battery before it dies to the point where it cannot keep time anymore

Seiko chronograph alarm


Solution #3 (Posted by Guest on 5 Mar 08) is spot on. Quick and easy method to reset the chrono hands (it was not in my Seiko manual).
Interestingly, this can also be used to set the chrono ahead (or behind--with a little math) for offset timing measurements.
