    ive had this ? up for awhile maybe nobody knows. i really don' t want to take it to repair if i can help it. But it is an important watch to me. I guess i'll wait a little while longer before i take it in, then ill report back to the forum.

your watch is chronograph,. and it is not in the picture. probably your problem is the second hand won,t move, it is because that the sub dial on the lower part it is the real second hand. the big second hand is for the stopwatch. the to sub dial on the upper sides of your watch. the upper button/bumper is to start and stop the stopwatch or the big second hand and the bottom bumper/button is to reset it. i hope this can solve the problem...

The second hand jumps forward every 5 seconds but the watch still keeps time OK.

You need to replace battery.
Q/A from swiss army website.
Q. How do I know when the battery needs changing?
A. In select models, the battery end-of-life indicator signals that the battery should be replaced within two or three days. When the battery is low, the second hand stands still for 2-4 seconds, and then speeds up to the correct time. This indication will last for approximately one week, and then the timepiece hands stand still.

Why isn't the second hand on my Wenger Commando SR not working? The red seconds hand is not moving. The small seconds counter of the chronograph works and the minute and hour hands work.

The large seconds hand will remain at 12 unless you press the upper right button to start it. Pres again to stop it and press the lower button to reset it. The small seconds hand that always runs is the seconds for the time. The large seconds hand is for the stopwatch function. If you like to have it running all the time just start it and leave it running - it won't harm the watch.

The second hand stops on the minute hand

If the hands are binding the movement needs to be removed from the case and the hands set right. i.e. parrallel and not binding.

I can not change the date on my Wenger Swiss Military Watch. How can I do this?

As you pull the mainstem out, there will be a position, a 'notch' if you will, whereby as the hour and minute hands are rotated the date will change. Rotate ONLY clockwise, and when the desired date appears, be sure to turn an additional 360 degree turn on the hands if you are setting the date in the afternoon. Otherwise, the date will lag by 12 hours.
