Is it a chronograph model? If so, reset the chrono. If not, you are going to have to send it in to a repair shop or the mfr to repair it...probably bumped it hard

### 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 sport watch fossil CH2470. the second hand is not moving, stuck on 12, but everything else works. how do i fix this?

Your watch is Chronograph watch and the big centre seconds hand is for chronograph function only - not day to day seconds counting. Check the small dials and you will see that the small seconds hand is already counting seconds- this small one is seconds counter. To engage chrono hand push the upper push button once. To stop it - push the same button again. to return to zero- push lower button.

### Tissot PRS 200 cannot reset counter hand (the counter stuck especially in the morning)

The owners manual mentions how to fix this but the instructions are not 100% clear. You can download the PRS200 manual here:
http://www.tissot.ch/data/usersmanual/134-en.pdf

Each of the 3 chrono hands are reset separately. Unscrew the crown and pull it all the way out (2 stops out). Press button A (top right) as many times as necessary until the hand is on the 30. Each press moves the hand one tick so you may need to press it several times.

Next push in the crown one click.
Press button B (bottom right) as many times as necessary to advance the 60 second hand to 12'oclock.
Press button A to advance the 1/10th hand to 0.

The part I did not get at first is the fact that you need to press the A and B buttons several times to advance each hand 1 tick at a time until they are all pointing to 12'oclock.
