SOURCE: Festina Dashboard watch - Adjusting the hand of the stopwatch

Your watch has quartz movement and stopwatch adjustment by one step (one full second) only. That means you will not be able to adjust stopwatch hand by using pushers on your watch as each push of the pusher will advance stopwatch hand for the full second, not the fifth or the tenth of the second, and the hand will stay slightly off anyway.
This happenened because the IC (integrated circuit) in your watch miscalculated the teeth count on chronograph wheel and stopped one or two teeth past or under the zero point. It doesn't happen very often, but in your case it did and the only solution is to find your nearest watch repair shop and ask for resetting stopwatch hand to zero.
This procedure needs partial disassembling of the watch and quite a great skill as the stopwatch hand must be removed and then refitted with great accuracy. All this needs to be done by very specialized tools as well.
I think this is the only solution of your problem unless you can live with that and just leave it as it is.
Do not forget to rate, please.
