Question about Bulova Watches

Open Question

I have 3 chronographs, jorg gray 6500, bulova 96b137 and invicta 6414. i can't get any of those 3 for the long second hand to work. they only work if i press on the top A button at 2'o clock for stop watch purposes. is there a way for them to work like a regular second hand? all the ads have their pictures where the large second is working. i wonder if you can help. thanks.

SOURCE: the watch stops instead of the chrono

On this type of watch the second should not be working unless you are in the chrono mode. The lower dial should be the only indication of the seconds when not in chrono mode. You probably need to have the chrono reset and shown how the functions work. Try a Fossil location they will be able to tell you how to work this watch. It does not sound like this is a major problem.

Actually the sweep arm can be set to 0 and will probably have to be every time you have the battery replaced. To set the sweep arm pull the stem and crown out to the first or second set position then press and hold down the start button. The sweep arm will move into position and you can let go of the button when it is where you want it. Make sure to set the right time and replace the crown in the time position.

Great watch!!

SOURCE: Large second hand not running, Stop Watch function?

Hey, it sounds like your watch is just fine! A nice watch to inherit.
The small second hand on the sub-dial is your normal second hand.
The large second hand is the second timer for your chronograph feature.
It should only move when you hit the side buttons. One of them (usually the top plunger/ button) will start the Chrono timer and then hitting it again will stop it. The bottom button should reset the hand to the 12 o'clock/ zero marker.
If the large hand is not functioning at all then there may be something wrong with the watch; perhaps the buttons are not making full contact within the watch or the hand may be stuck and need repair.
Hope this answers your questions. Post more questions if need be.
Congrats on your new watch.

SOURCE: Bulova 96R31 keeps time + date, but the chronograph does not work

The problem is in chronograph module or related gear train. To find what exactly the problem is, special tools and equipment is needed as well as watchmakers knowledge and skill. There may be just an underpowered battery, but according to your explanation, I tend to think that the first causes mentioned by me are the right ones. Visit your nearest watch repair shop and ask to check your watch for any faults. Rate me, please.

The instructions seem simple enough and if the watchfails to operate correctly, I suggest that you return it under the warranty.

The second hand won't tick


On many Invicta watches, the large hand which points towards 12 o'clock is not a second hand. It is the hand used with the stopwatch function. If yours is a chronograph, the second hand, if there is one, may be one of the three small dials on the watch face. There are a number of movements used in Invicta watches and the operating instructions can differ from movement to movement. The battery also will be different depending on the movement.

The seconds hand on my invicta subaqua reserve does not move. It only moves when I start the chronograph. I've read the instructions time after time and can not get it to work.


The hand that moves when the chronograph is working is not a second hand. It will rest at the 12 o'clock position unless you are using the stopwatch. If your Invicta has a second hand, it is one of those small dials on the watch face.

The second hand on my invicta chronograph watch doesn't reset to zero


Easier than you think.
Pull your Crown out to the FIRST stop (were you would normally set your date). Push the "A" button (top chrono button) for your dial at the "3 oclock" area, Push the "B" button(bottom chron button) for the second hand.

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.

Invicta model 3209 watch


Your watch is fitted with chronograph movement 5040D made by Ronda (Switzerland). If you take a closer look, then you will realise that the subdial at 3 o'clock is counting seconds allready. This is your seconds dial, not the big one.
The big seconds hand actually is the chronograph hand (stopwatch) and, when activated, works together with 1/10th counter.
Follow this link and see for yourself:

http://www.ronda.ch/e/index_bedienung.html

Find movement 5040D and click on INTERACTIVE version.

Rate me, please.
