SOURCE: nixon super rover..need to know how to reset the chronograph

Pull the stem all the way out...like your setting the date. Then hit the upper button and that will move the hand 1 second at a time until it gets here you want.

SOURCE: Second hand does not return to zero caliber 3606

Yes, this can be recalibrated from the outside. To get your chrono hands pointing in the right direction pull the crown out to the first position then click the plunger/ chrono button. This should move your chrono hand one click at a time to get it to the right place. If this does not work try pulling the crown out to 2nd position (all the way out) and try clicking the plunger as described above.
If this STILL does not work, which it should, then you'll need to go to an Omega dealer and have them take a look at it.

SOURCE: Heuer chronograph second hands will not reset to

Pull out crown and then push the upper button and hold it. The chrono hand should start move and you should be able to adjust it. If this doesn't work, try the same with lower button. When adjusted - push the crown back in. In fact there are very many variations how to reset chrono hand, but exact advise can be given if the movement caliber of particular watch is known.
Rate me, plz.

SOURCE: The chronograph hand of my TAG Formula1 starts at

If you pull out the crown to the first stop, then press the start/stop button that should move the second had on one second per press. The reset button moves one of the other dials. If you pull the crown out to the second stop, the start/stop moves the minute hand on, and the reset button moves the other small dial round.

I just recieved my Movado 800 series watch today and the large chronograph timer hand won't reset to zero (top of dial @ 12 o'clock) when I press the zero button. It resets to 56 minute position....


you do not need to return, as this is re-settable. Pull out crown to the first position (date setting) and then toggle with upper push button. If upper button do not do the job, try the bottom one. When you reach 12, then push the crown back in. Start the chrono, stop it and check if it returns to 12.

Please clarify use of the 3 smaller dials and how the hands to each are set and reset


The small bottom dial is seconds counter and there is no option to set or reset it as it is part of the main gear train - it just counts the seconds. Top right dial is 1/10 seconds counter and runs only when the chronograph function is engaged. One full circle indicates 1 second. Top left dial is 30 minutes counter and runs only when the chronograph function is engaged. One full circle indicates 30 minutes, two circles = 1 hour. The big centre seconds hand is actually Chronograph hand and runs only when the chrono function is engaged. So, the chronograph hand and two top dials works all together when chrono function is engaged. To start chrono: push upper button once. To stop chrono: push upper button again (once). To return all hands to zero: push lower button once. There is another option: if you already stopped chrono by pushing upper button, but want to continue counting without returning hands to zero, push the upper button once more and the counting will start from the point where it stopped. You can repeat this as many as you wish - it will count on and on, till you will stop it and reset to zero. Fine tuning of chrono hands can be made by pulling the crown half way out and while leaving in this position pushing and holding one of the push buttons (which one - depends on movement caliber). Watch has an tachymeter function as well (big inner ring). Learn how to use it by browsing through my Tips and Tricks- it is explained there. Rate me, please.

I have a police chronograph watch about a year old if that and the chronograph dials have reset themselves at random points does anyone know why and if so is there a fix? many thanks david


hi,
all you need to do is pull the centre bezel out (to where you adjust the time) and by pressing the top button the chronograph needle will move round. Once it is the correct place simply push the centre bezel back in.

Hope this helps.

Pressing reset doesn't go to zero. sweep second hand goes to 57 seconds


Pull out the crown and use either a combination or one of the cronograph buttons, this will allow you to adjust the hand positions

Need instructions on National Geographic Men's watch #NG010GYSK




go to Buliva web site and look for the chorograph 561/598
FEATURES
1. Hours, minutes, seconds and date display.
2. 60 minute Chronograph (CHRONO) with minutes and
seconds display.
3. 24 hour hand, permanently synchronized with the normal
12 hour hand.
A. SETTING THE TIME
1. Pull the crown out to position “3” (See diagram). If the crown has
a “screw-down” lock, then unscrew the crown lock first by turning
the crown toward you, then pull it to position “3”. Do not forget to
screw the crown back “IN” after all setting is completed.
2. Turn the crown towards you (hands moves clockwise) until the
date changes at approximately midnight.
3. Continue turning the hour and minute hands to the correct time.
If it is afternoon you must go past 12 o’clock again (noon) to set
the correct time.
4. When the correct time is set,push crown back to position “1”.
B. SETTING THE DATE
1. Pull crown to position “2”(See proceeding diagram).The watch
will continue to run.
2. Turn the crown away from you until the correct date appears.
3. Once the date is set, push the crown back to position “1”.
Note: Do NOT set the date between the hours of 8:00 PM and
3:00 AM.This would not damage the watch,but the date may need
to be reset later.
C. CHRONOGRAPH (CHRONO) ADJUSTMENT
If the chrongraph second hand is not positioned at the proper
starting position (12 o’clock or “zero” position), use the below
procedure.It does not need to be repeated unless the watch
receives an impact sufficient to move the hand out of position, or
the Battery has been changed.
1. Pull crown out to position “3”.
2. Push button “A” to move the Chrono Second hand (long hand) to
the “0” or 12 o’clock position. Each button push will move the
hand one step – BUT holding the button down will advance the
hand rapidly.
3. Push crown back to position “1”.
D. USING THE CHRONOGRAPH (CHRONO)
Note:
The maximum chrono reading is 60 minutes, However the
chrono will continue running once 60 minutes has passed. The
resulting one hour periods may be added together mentally to keep
track of longer periods.
For example – If you know that approximately one hour has
passed since you started the chronograph, and the chrono reads
25 minutes, then you know that the chrono has been running 60
minutes plus 25 minutes, which is one hour and 25 minutes.
1. Push Button “A” to start the chronograph. Push button “A” again
to stop the chronograph.
2. Push button “B” to return the two chronograph hands to the
“Zero” or starting point.
3. The Chronograph can be stopped and started again
(Button “A”), repeatedly, to “ADD” times together.

I don't know if this is the same for you, but on my watch I can pull the winder all the way out for the time setting and then I hit the start button for the chronograph and it will adjust the second hand. Hope this helps.

Reset Stopwatch Hands on CL1111 ?


Try setting the crown to position 2 - i.e. the position normally used to adjust the date.  Then use the top and bottom stopwatch buttons to adjust the minute hand and 1/10th hand respectively.
