Chronograph hand not resetting to 12 o'clock

My chronograph hand for this watch is resetting to the 1 minute to 12 position rather than 12 o'clock. My instruction book does not seem to cover this watch. The nearest instruction advises there is a corrector which can be pressed to solve this problem, however these is no corrector button. Service centre number is not recognised.

    i have a wenger watch it works fine apart from the alarm and chronograph do not work, also the second hand moves at 5 second intervels can anyone please help

  • Secko Mar 09, 2009



    Hoping someone can help?

    My TW Steel watch's chronograph second hand slips which makes the watch lose time. If the chrono is in the correct position the time is correct, however every few days it slips a few seconds and when resetting it it returns to the same position. 




    Has anyone ever experienced this and if so, any ideas what is causing it. Its happened with my last 2 watches.


    Thanks in advance

    Second hand moving 5 second intervals likely means your battery is low.

For my victorinox, the crown out one position and the reset button (lower chronograph button) changes the minute hand and the top (start/stop button) does the 10th's of a second...crown all the way out and top (start/stop button) does 30 second intervals for the minute counter.

I have a Festina Chronograph and my second hand was sitting on 26" past. What I did was to pull the crown out all the way and then with the top button (the one that will activate the second hand under normal conditions) push it several times to get it back to the 12. You will see that every time you push it the second hand will move up by one hand. once your second hand is reset you can replace the crown. BUT.... my chronograph has a minute hand as well.... yep... you have to move your second hand like a million time to reset the minute hand. Good luck

You can also use the start/stop button to ajust other chronograph hands while pulling the crown full and half way.

My seiko chronograph second hand, 1/20 sec and the minute hand all didn't line up. What I did was to pull the crown all the way out and press the top button to cycle thru the above 3 chronograph. You then press the bottom button to advance them. Say you press the top button and it the second hand that move. You then press the bottom button to advance to 12 o'clock. Repeat the sequence for the next chronograph hand.

For longines .
If i pull the crown out to half position the top and bottom buttons move the chronograph hour and minute hands forward a notch.
If i pull out the crown fully the top and bottom buttons move the chronograph second and 1/10th of a second hands forward a notch .
holding the button in spins the hand round quickly .
once all hands pointing straight up push crown back in and bingo!! all is good and resets correctly to due north.

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!

Reset chronograph hands on Accurist 7344

To reset the chronograph hands on an Accurist 7344 watch, you will need to follow these steps:
  1. Pull out the crown to the second click (time-setting position)
  2. Press and hold the top button (located at 2 o'clock) until the chronograph seconds hand returns to the 12 o'clock position.
  3. Release the button and then press and hold the bottom button (located at 4 o'clock) until the chronograph minutes hand returns to the 12 o'clock position.
  4. Release the button and push the crown back in to the normal position.
It's important to note that these steps may vary depending on the specific model of your Accurist 7344 watch. If these steps don't work, refer to the manual or contact the manufacturer for more detailed instructions. Additionally, if the chronograph hands don't move at all, check the battery and make sure it's properly inserted and the watch is working properly after replacing it, if not, contact Accurist customer service for more assistance.

How it works invicta clock mechanism ?

Your watch is battery powered or a 'quartz' watch. It is commonly refered to as a 'chronograph'. That is another word for stop watch.As well as telling time and the date, your watch can time how long an event lasts. For example, a horse race. You start the chronograph or stop watch when the horse starts and stop it when it crosses the finish line. When the next horse starts you need set it back to zero to time the next race.Operation is simple. The upper push button starts and stops the chronograph. Try it. Now with the chronograph stopped, push the bottom button. The hand return to the 12 o'clock position or the 'zero' position. Also notice the small dials on the dial or face of the watch. They record minutes and other increments of time. The large hand going around when you push the upper button is recording seconds. Hope this helps, Michael

I just recieved my Movado 800 series watch today and the large chronograph timer hand won't reset to zero (top of dial @ 12 o'clock) when I press the zero button. It resets to 56 minute position....

you do not need to return, as this is re-settable. Pull out crown to the first position (date setting) and then toggle with upper push button. If upper button do not do the job, try the bottom one. When you reach 12, then push the crown back in. Start the chrono, stop it and check if it returns to 12.

The chronograph second hand now resets to the 5 O-Clock position?

I have found instructions that tell you how to reset the hands but there are several buttons on your watch and to avoid confusion you really need to see a diagram.

You can do this by going to the Seiko web site (seiko.com), click on "support", then "instruction booklets".

Scroll down the next page and you will see a list of the watches made by Seiko. Select yours and download.

Go to page 16.

I have a police chronograph watch about a year old if that and the chronograph dials have reset themselves at random points does anyone know why and if so is there a fix? many thanks david

hi,
all you need to do is pull the centre bezel out (to where you adjust the time) and by pressing the top button the chronograph needle will move round. Once it is the correct place simply push the centre bezel back in.

Hope this helps.

Need instructions on National Geographic Men's watch #NG010GYSK



go to Buliva web site and look for the chorograph 561/598
FEATURES
1. Hours, minutes, seconds and date display.
2. 60 minute Chronograph (CHRONO) with minutes and
seconds display.
3. 24 hour hand, permanently synchronized with the normal
12 hour hand.
A. SETTING THE TIME
1. Pull the crown out to position “3” (See diagram). If the crown has
a “screw-down” lock, then unscrew the crown lock first by turning
the crown toward you, then pull it to position “3”. Do not forget to
screw the crown back “IN” after all setting is completed.
2. Turn the crown towards you (hands moves clockwise) until the
date changes at approximately midnight.
3. Continue turning the hour and minute hands to the correct time.
If it is afternoon you must go past 12 o’clock again (noon) to set
the correct time.
4. When the correct time is set,push crown back to position “1”.
B. SETTING THE DATE
1. Pull crown to position “2”(See proceeding diagram).The watch
will continue to run.
2. Turn the crown away from you until the correct date appears.
3. Once the date is set, push the crown back to position “1”.
Note: Do NOT set the date between the hours of 8:00 PM and
3:00 AM.This would not damage the watch,but the date may need
to be reset later.
C. CHRONOGRAPH (CHRONO) ADJUSTMENT
If the chrongraph second hand is not positioned at the proper
starting position (12 o’clock or “zero” position), use the below
procedure.It does not need to be repeated unless the watch
receives an impact sufficient to move the hand out of position, or
the Battery has been changed.
1. Pull crown out to position “3”.
2. Push button “A” to move the Chrono Second hand (long hand) to
the “0” or 12 o’clock position. Each button push will move the
hand one step – BUT holding the button down will advance the
hand rapidly.
3. Push crown back to position “1”.
D. USING THE CHRONOGRAPH (CHRONO)
Note:
The maximum chrono reading is 60 minutes, However the
chrono will continue running once 60 minutes has passed. The
resulting one hour periods may be added together mentally to keep
track of longer periods.
For example – If you know that approximately one hour has
passed since you started the chronograph, and the chrono reads
25 minutes, then you know that the chrono has been running 60
minutes plus 25 minutes, which is one hour and 25 minutes.
1. Push Button “A” to start the chronograph. Push button “A” again
to stop the chronograph.
2. Push button “B” to return the two chronograph hands to the
“Zero” or starting point.
3. The Chronograph can be stopped and started again
(Button “A”), repeatedly, to “ADD” times together.
