The waterproof seal is not woking, or one of the controls was used while the watch was wet, and water came in to the watch. If this is not serviced soon, there will be eventual damage to the movement of the watch.

Yes, pulling out crown prolongs battery life, but this is only for allmost unnoticeable period of time.
With the seconds hand there are only one solution- you have to take your watch to the nearest watchmaker as you will not be able to deal with it without appropriate knowledge and skills.
There can be two reasons why the seconds hand is jumping:
1) Fault within integrated circuit ( watch 'brain' is not giving an impulse in a specific period of time),
2) Few teeth may be damaged on second wheel as well as there can be tiny dirt particles sticking onto it.
Both need attention of professional.
If that seconds hand do not annoy you too much, wait till the watch needs battery replacement and then replace battery and check the watch at once. It will be cheaper then to do both jobs separately.

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!

If your watch band have UV sensitive pigmentation in it, there is nothing you can do, but buy the new band.
Find your nearest jeweller and ask to clean watch band in ultrasonic cleaner for 1 hour. If this kind of cleaning doesn't help, that means your watch band is UV sensitive and is and will be discolouring more and more by the time.
Alternatively you can try to clean it with the lighter fluid (ZIPPO). Soak a soft cloth in to lighter fluid and clean the band. Start with a small area inside band to make sure the fluid is not reacting as dissolver, as some resins react quite vigorously and tend to transform into chewing gum sort of state.
And again- if this cleaning doesn't help, the band is UV sensitive and discolouring is taking place.
That discolouring is happening becouse some of the colour pigments used in resin manufacture are sensitive to ultraviolet light and when exposed to sunlight or daylight, they react in a chemical
way, changing molecular structure, wich we see as the colour change.This process can not be reversed and this is why the band can not be cleaned.
Do not forget to rate please.

When you reset the big seconds hand to zero, the hour and the minute hand are not engaged in this function, so, there is no fault with the watch movement.
Do as follows:
1) pull out crown and set the hour and minute hands at 6 o'clock (they must be lined perfectly in opposite directions)
2) push the crown in half way back (not completely)
3) push and hold the button at 2 o'clock (set the big seconds hand to zero) and release it when done
4) when big seconds hand is zeroed push the crown back in
5) pull the crown out again and set desired time
6) push the crown back in.
If all actions described do not work, you will have to visit your nearest watch repair shop and ask to refit chronograph hand as in this case it is out of balance (not pointed at exact mark).
Rate me, please.
