My watch just did the same thing. I unscrewd the back off as to change the battery then the pulled up gently on the insides (on the opposite side of the time ajusting knob) just enough to allow a staight pin to slip between the glass then I advanced the adjusting knob while holding back the hour hand untill it was properly aligned.

SOURCE: Hands seem to be 180

Hello there, the problem with the watch is most likely the synchronization. The problem arises when the inner engine inside the unit is not fitted properly after it has been fixed. Usually the front face might have shifted when the unit was being fixed back or the hands would have been adjusted by touch mistakenly when the watch was being assembled. Get them to push both hands to the 12 position and then check why the watch has stopped functioning. Usually the first thing to check is the battery if your model has one or the engine timing. But as soon as they can get the watch to work all they have to do is push both hands to the 12 position this should synchronize the watch hands.
Hope this solution has been helpful?
Thank you for visiting FixYa.

Swatch diaphane second hand stuck


Hello, a week ago the small second hand (not long chrono second hand) got stucked and my irony swatch just stop moving. Although the chronometer could be running if started... The small hand just didn't move.
I tried different tricks, like removing battery, pull out main wheel and use chrono buttons to reset arms. Etc.
Today I noticed that when turning the wheel backwards a couple of times (one or two hours back) the little hand moved one second back... Pushing wheel back to On possition made the small hand move forward one second and get stucked again.
Then I did this procedure a couple of times, at some point I turned the wheel back for a while (may be 5 full turns) and noticed the small hand moved more than one second (5, 10, 15 seconds backward)... when I noticed it was moving freely I pushed wheel to on position and noticed the small second hand was running normal.. I hope it works for some of you. Greettings from Canada

Swatch, irony, men's watch, doesn't work


the second hand, the small one at about 6 o'clock is moving which indicates your watch is working. the other large hand is not the second hand but the chronograph hand or stopwatch hand. You start it in motion by pushing the button a 2 o'clock. You also stop it this way. The button a 4 o'clock is the button than resets it to zero (12 o'clock). You didn't say what wasn't working. Does this help?

I have a swatch irony chrono, but when I stop the stop-watch and push the bottom button, the sweep hand ends up at the 11 o'clock and not the 12 position. My quartz Parnis does this, and its driving me...


Assuming the mechanics work ok (thay all do 360 degree turns) it's just a calibration issue: download from SWATCH support a PDf which describes how to zero the watch hands, it's simple as taking the crown out to 3rd step, the pushing the buttons repectively till they point 12 direction. Exact details in the PDF.

Setting instruction for Accurist world time wrist watch


Same just happened to me, performthe following:

The analogue hands are not precisely synchronised with
the digital time?

1. Press the lower right button to move the mode indicator
hand to CHR.
2. Pull the lower right button out one click. The hour, minute
and UTC hands will retract towards the straight up 12 O’clock
position. You will see UTC on the top half of the digital display.
3. Press the upper right button to advance the hands to the
straight up 24-hour position. Use the lower left button to go in
reverse.
4. Press the upper left button. You will see HR on the top half
of the digital display. Press the upper right button to advance
the hour and 24-hour hand clockwise until they both point
straight up at the 24-hour position. Use the lower left button to
move the hand anti-clockwise.
5. Press the upper left button. You will see MIN on the top half
of the digital display. Press the upper right button to advance
the minute hand clockwise or the lower left button to move
anti-clockwise until it is pointing straight up at the 12 O’clock
position.
6. Push the lower right button back in one click.
The watch malfunctions in some way and the above
procedures do not work.
1. Press the lower right button until the mode indicator hand
points to TME.
2. Pull the lower right button out one click. Press the other
three buttons down simultaneously for three seconds and
release. You will see 8’s on the digital display.
3. Press the upper left button. You will see UTC on the top half
of the digital display. Press the upper right button to advance
the hands of the top dial to the straight up 24-hour position.
Use the lower left button to go in reverse.
4. Press the upper left button. You will see HR on the top half
of the digital display. Press the upper right button to advance
the hour and 24-hour hand clockwise until they both point
straight up at the 24-hour position. Use the lower left button to
move the hand anti-clockwise.
5. Press the upper left button. You will see MIN on the top half
of the digital display. Press the upper right button to advance
the minute hand clockwise or the lower left button to move
anti-clockwise until it is pointing straight up at the 12 O’clock

Setting model number jr3060-59f


1. set mode to CHR with the bezel fully in.
2. pull bezel out 2 notches. This will set all (or most) hands to 12.
3.press A (top button) repeatedly until you get MIN in the left window
4.turn the bezel to move the min hand forward.
4a. turn the bezel several clicks in quick sucession to get the minute hand to continue to move in the forward direction. This will "drag" the 24 hr UTC hour hand froward 1 hour per 1 revolution of the minute hand. if the minute hand stops before you want it to repeat step 4a. continue till the 24 hr UTC hour hand points to 24.
5. to stop the minute hand turn the bezel backwards 1 click. remember however to approach the 12 position with the minute hand in a clockwise direction.

Analog clock not in sync with digital clock


This problem may be due to your analog hands being improperly zeroed. To find out, try this: 1. Put the watch in chronograph mode by rotating the crowon in its normal position to "chr" 2. Pull out the crown two clicks. This should cause all of the hands to point to zero. If you do this and your minute hand points to 1 o'clock, or five minutes, you will know that this is the problem. If this is the problem, you can can correct it by zeroing the hands as follows: 1. Put the watch in chronograph mode by rotating the crowon in its normal position to "chr" 2. Pull out the crown two clicks. This should cause all of the hands to point to zero, or close to it. You should also notice the letters "HR" in the lefthand digital display. This allows you to move the hour hand by rotating the crown. If the hour hand is not pointing at 12 o'clock, rotate it so that it does. 3. Push the top button once. The letters "MIN" should appear in the lefthand digital display. This allows you to move the minute hand on the large dial, and the minute and hour hands on the small UTC dial. Rotate the crown so that the minute hand points directly to 12 o'clock. 4. Push the top button again. The letters "SEC" should appear in the lefthand digital display. Rotate the crown to point the second hand directly at 12 o'clock. 5. Push the crown back into its normal position. Set the digiatl time and date in your tie zone, and your analog hands should match the digital read-out. If the zeroing of the hands is not the problem, I don't know what is wrong with the watch.
