Question about Watches

1 Answer

Hi, i received a Pulsar Chronograph watch for Christmas. The problem i have is that it stops when i wear it but works perfectly when i take it off however the second hand continues whether is is on or off. I dont know if it makes any difference but i have experienced a lot of static over the last few months e.g. touching car doors and other metal objects. This has never happened before with any other watches, or with watches i currently have apart from this one. Many thanks

This is interesting, since my ex always said she couldn't wear the battery operated Pulsar watches, but that was years ago. Apparantly, the jeweler she bought it from said some people have electrolytes or chemistry in their system that somehow interferes with the battery controlled mechanism.
However, the static issue could be affecting it also.
I'm also wondering, if the watch isn't getting "flexed" just a bit, to physically affect the minute and hour hands or gear bezels.
Obviously, it or you aren't getting along, and it's too new to be going bad. Get and exchange or refund, since another one might not work for you.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

Pulsar Chronograph 100 m - The second hand on the left small dial (not the sweep second hand of the stop watch) has begun moving erratically. It appears to move for two counts and pause for three and then...

If your watch is solar powered the second hand performs this characteristic when it's in need of a charge. Try placing your time piece under a bright light for short time or in direct sunlight and see if this helps you with your problem.

I have a pulsar chronograph 100m the time keeping seems to be ok but, the buttons for stop watch, when stopping the sec,1/20 etc hand are not returning to zero. can u help. richard

Thanks for using Fixya.
Try this: pull out crown to the first click, then push and hold button at 2 o'clock. When the hand is adjusted to the desired time, push the crown back in.
If this do not work, do the same using the button at 4 o'clock.

Good Luck and have a nice day.

The timer on Pulsar watch does not line up at 12 when reset.

To set the timer hand on these models of Pulsar watches, do the following: 
Looking at the face of the watch, there are two buttons and a crown on the right side. The TOP button is Button "A". - The BOTTOM button is Button "B".
There are 3 positions on the crown: IN (#1), FIRST CLICK (#2) & SECOND CLICK (#3).
First, pull the crown out to the second 'click' position (#3) ... This is all the way out. (STOP THERE! Pulling harder will harm your watch! Don't try to pull past position #3!)
Push and hold Button "A" for two (2) seconds. The dial will sweep around to the 12 O'clock position. You can advance the timer while the crown is in position #3 (second click out) to reset it back to the default position. 
The manual says that if you pull the crown out to position #3 while the timer is measuring, the hand will reset back to the 12 o'clock position... I haven't tried that, so I can't confirm.
