SOURCE: Hands of watch out of synch
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.
