My Tag Heuer chronograph will not reset to zero.
Try the following, which I discovered by accident on my Tag Professional.
Pull the crown out to the first position, and then you may find that successive pushes of the upper pushbutton will move one of the chrono hands by one division, and the lower pushbutton will move a different chrono hand. Similarly if you pull the crown out to the second position, the pushbuttons will control the other chrono hands. In this way you can set each of the chrono hands to their zero positions.
Hope this works for you.

Usually when a watch with a mechanical movement is running fast its is because the adjustment on the hairspring is advanced to far. Since it wasn't running fast to begin with I can assume its because something was knocked loose. It is possible that a tiny drop of oil was on the hairspring and by knocking the watch two coils are stuck together by the oil. (this usually only happens if it has been over oiled by an amature watch repairer) Magnitization is possible but pretty unlikely, unless you play with Big coils of wire that are carrying a LOT of current. Either way, unless you know what you're doing and have the right tools, you are looking at taking it to a Tag repair center. Since a simple tune up can cost about $250, I'd expect to pay $400 to $500 for that one. Welcome to the wonderful world of high end watches.

What kind of watch winder do I need for this watch
You have selected a wonderful watch... Heuer and TAG/Heuer should be gently wound by the motion of the human wrist and the falling of a centrally pivoting weight (there is no ideal direction).
AUTO-WIND function is NOT at all unique to your watch...
After a couple of CHEAPER "winders" failed me... and after I figured about 4 watches was more than enough to keep wound... I found the greatest BASIC watch winder... to run year over year (efficiently and quietly)
MTE watch winder (their very basic WTS-4).
Good luck: I WILL try to include the URL (see page 6)
