Question about Michele MW Square Chrono 71-750-CC-311-180 Wrist Watch

1 Answer

I just purchased a Michele chronograph watch and need assistance with stopping the "seconds counter". I don't know if it's suppose to constantly run or not. I also noticed my second hand seems to stop when I'm not wearing the watch. Is this normal? Your assistance would be greatly appreciated!

It might have something to do with the timing function. Perhaps when you're not wearing it, you pull the stem out but not all the way? If it's pulled to the second notch and hit one of the 2 pusher buttons, you may be stopping it. And likewise, perhaps you're starting the seconds counter? Google Michele watch instructions for the PDF instruction manual for details.

SOURCE: Chronograph hand not resetting to 12 o'clock

don't know if you have this fixed or not yet, but this worked for me.

pull the crown all the way out. then press the chronograph start/stop button. the chronograph hand should tick forward every time (or every couple times) you press the button. I'm not sure if you go past 12 if you'll have to go all the way back around. but try not to.

anyways, when it's lined up, push the crown back in and then start the chronograph and let it go for at least a full minute. now when you press the chronograph reset button it should reset back to 12. hope this works!

Anyone who says they can't open your watch is NOT a repairman. Take it to a mom and pop repairman, NOT a big store, because most of the big stores send all their repairs out to someone like the mom and pop store. If you still have problems finding someone please feel free to get ahold of me and I will assist you. Good Luck!!

raebarb,
I had the same problem, you can fix it without an expensive watch maker. The online instructions are not perfect, but are better than the ones that come with the watch. Go to www.michele.com/.../Michele/.../instructions/michele_instructions.pdf
Refer to page # 10 "Adjusting the Chronograph Hands to Zero Position" even though these instructions refer to adjusting only 2 hands on a different model, with a little playing around you can reset all 4 hands. The trick is to pull out the stem, 2 clicks to position III and then using buttons A and B. You will have to do the 2 hands then push the stem back in. Repeat the process and reset the other 2 hands.

Good luck, YOU can do it, I just did.

MICHELE CSX HAND ALIGNMENT


You don't say if your "CSX" is a battery powered watch or a mechanical or windup type watch. The solution for a mechanical watch is take it to a watchmaker. If it is a battery powered watch you may be able to do it yourself. Not all work the same way so without knowing what a "CSX" is I will give you one way to try. Pull the crown out two clicksHold the lower button in until a hand moves.You have now selected that hand to adjustUsing the upper button now, press and adjust the hand until it lines up with 12Now hold the lower button againAnother hand should moveUse the upper button to adjust this hand to the 12 positioncontinue this until all the hands line up with 12Press the crown in and press the upper button,the chronograph hands should startPress the upper button again and they should startPress the lower button and they should all go to the 12 o'clock position

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.

Want to use larger second hand and set other to zero. have small one working now and the larger one would work if i pressed the top button on side of watch now it wont do anything if i press button dont...


This watch is a chronograph. The true second hand is the one you mentioned that is currently running (what is called the subdial hand).

To use the chronograph hand,

1) Press the button at the 2:00 location to start timing.
2) Press the button at the 2:00 location to stop timing.
3) Press the button at the 4:00 position to reset the chronograph hand(s) to zero.

To reset the chronograph hands to zero, set the crown to either click position one (usually date setting) or two (usually time setting), and use each button to test which subdial hand it will zero out.

Usually it is the first crown click position, and pressing the 2:00 or 4:00 button to zero out.

Warning: Leaving the chronograph function running will drain your watch battery much faster than using the standard second hand, as it is a complication meant for the purpose of timing an activity or other event.

If this does not zero your watch, you must either send it back to Michele, or visit your nearest Certified Master Horologist to assess the issue, as the movement may have a defect.

I have a new chronograph Michele watch. How do I change the day of the week without changing the date?


As per the instruction PDF that I just read, the day of the week only changes with each 24 hour rotation. Therefore to change it, you might pull the crown out all the way and wind it through every hour in each day until it advances to the day you want. Then set the correct time. Push the crown in one notch to the second position and wind the dates forward until it stops on the one you want. It doesn't appear that going backwards for either the time (for day of the week) or date works.

Need a user manual for the time magazine free chronograph watch


I have NO ideal what kind of watch it is so I am giving general chronograph instructions. You will have to use as it applies to the watch you were given.

care.gif
These instructions are provided for users who are not familiar with using a mechanical/analog chronograph. The instructions may be applied to any chronograph that has a seconds counter, 30 minute counter, and hour counter.
Please refer to the instructions of the appropriate model to determine the location of each counter on the dial. Note: some of the features described here may not be available on your particular model. Again, refer to the specifications to see if they apply to your model.
Using the chronographe functions:
How to read the chronographe:
For a chronographe that has a center seconds register, a 30 minute register and an hour register. Example 1: If the hour register is between the 1 and 2, but closer to the 1, and the minute register is at 20, and the seconds register is at 35, then the elapsed time is 1 hour 20 minutes and 35 seconds. Example 2: If the hour register is between the 1 and 2, but closer to the 2, and the minute register is at 20, and the seconds register is at 35, then the elapsed time is 1 hour 50 minutes and 35 seconds.
How to read the tachymetre:
If you are driving and want to determine the speed of the car using your tachymetre, start your chronograph when you pass a mile marker, stop your chronographe when you pass the next mile marker. Look at the center seconds hand and read the number on the Tachymetre scale, this number will indicate the miles per hour that the vehicle is travelling.
How to read the pulsometer:
Some watches have a pulsometer instead of a tachymetre. Use it as follows: Start the chronographe and begin counting the pulse. When you have counted 30 beats, stop the chronographe. The number on the pulsometer scale will indicate the pulse rate per minute.
How to read the telemeter:
Some watches have a telemeter instead of a tachymetre or pulsometer. Here is an example of one use for a telemeter: Start the chronographe when you see lighting. Stop the chronographe when you hear the thunder. Read the center seconds hand on the Telemetric scale and the number will indicate the distance separating the observer from the place where the lighting struck. This can give you a good indication of how far off a storm might be.
The many uses of a chronographe:
A chronograph has many practical uses, from timing a plane flight, a car ride, or simply being curious. There are also some uses for the chronographe that may not be so obvious. For example, you can use the chronographe on your watch as a dual timezone indicator. This is done as follows: If it is currently 6 A.M. in your home location and it is 12 noon in London, start your chronograph at exactly 6 o'clock. The number of hours displayed on your chronographe hour register will then show you the current time in London. Of course, these are just some uses of a chronographe. There are hundreds of uses for chronographes.
