20 Most Recent Swatch Diaphane Chronograph Blooded Silver SVCK4038G Watch for Men Questions & Answers

Hello, a week ago the small second hand (not long chrono second hand) got stucked and my irony swatch just stop moving. Although the chronometer could be running if started... The small hand just didn't move.
I tried different tricks, like removing battery, pull out main wheel and use chrono buttons to reset arms. Etc.
Today I noticed that when turning the wheel backwards a couple of times (one or two hours back) the little hand moved one second back... Pushing wheel back to On possition made the small hand move forward one second and get stucked again.
Then I did this procedure a couple of times, at some point I turned the wheel back for a while (may be 5 full turns) and noticed the small hand moved more than one second (5, 10, 15 seconds backward)... when I noticed it was moving freely I pushed wheel to on position and noticed the small second hand was running normal.. I hope it works for some of you. Greettings from Canada

i'm not sure if your swatch is simply clicking over at 1:30am, or if it is actually starting to switch over much earlier, and then completing the switch at 1:30.

the latter is how most watches work...especially my beloved seiko SKX diver automatic. the switchover begins prior to midnight, and ends after midnight...sometimes starting the slow turnover as early as 11:30pm in some watches and ending at as late as 1:30.

however, if this is not the case with you, and it's just flipping over late, i don't know what can be done with something like a swatch. you don't mention if it's an automatic or quartz, but literally most swatches are NOT built to be repaired. they were conceived as a throwaway watch when done with, and the cases are not made to be opened for repairs.

they have become such a cult item that if you look ******* google you can find companies or people who have learned how to open a swatch without destroying it, can source parts, and can fix/repair the watch. but it's not an easy slam dunk deal. it's different with each model.

so, with a timepiece like a swatch, with its unique character of having an endlife, kind of like a replicant from Blade Runner, you will need to likely accept what you have bought with its limitations, and the one you've mentioned is minor compared to the watch just breaking and needing to be thrown out or put in a drawer.

the swatch definitely has limits set out by its very concept. and to go back to the movies, as Dirty Harry once said: 'A man's got to know his limitations'.

that goes for watches too.

Gently pull the middle button, (or 'crown'), outwards away from the side of the watch. It won't move very far but if you do it slowly and gently you should feel it move 2 clicks or 'notches'. Pull to the first 'notch' for the Date settings and the second for the Time settings. For the date twist one way for the day of the week and twist the opposite way for the date number. Pull the crown out to the 2nd 'notch' and you can move the hands to the correct time. Push the crown all the way back In when you have finished doing any of these settings.

It's made to be about the width of the edge of a coin. Try your smallest coin currency, and work up from there.

  1. The buttons on your watch have 3 positions: the normal position I will call "A", pulled out once "B", and pulled out twice "C"
  2. Turn the upper button to "COMPASS" and pull it out to the "C" position and select your your declination angle. Declination Angle reference chart: http://lh3.ggpht.com/_XhazifOyjUc/S5VCL88i9GI/AAAAAAAAAF8/kaEksl600tU/image_thumb%5B2%5D.png?imgmax=800
  3. Adjust the upper button to the "B" position and place the watch on a flat surface.
  4. Leaving the watch flat, carefully rotate the watch two full rotations at a rate of 15 seconds per rotation.
  5. Press the upper button to the "A" position.
  6. You're watch's compass is now calibrated.
  7. Always double check the calibration before choosing to depend on it
