Question about Watches

1 Answer

Sweep 2nd hand operation & watch time setting on my Pulsar watch.

After setting the time on my watch, the sweep second hand stops unless I press one of the buttons. Even when I do, it will stop after an hour or so at the 12 O'clock position. The watch is keeping time and the little seconds hand moves but not the larger sweep 2nd hand. It is a Pulsar PF8036.

The larger second hand on the Pulsar PF8036 is part of the stopwatch feature. The upper button starts/stops the stopwatch feature, and the lower button operates the lap/reset function. Why they made the larger hand work only with the stopwatch instead of the smaller hand to the left is beyond me, but that's how it is designed.

    I need the manual of breil milano shosholoza.the model is bw0480


    The crown has 3 positions.

    Normal screwed down.
    First pull out position.
    Second pull out position.

    Setting the Time:
    Pull out the crown to position 3.
    Rotate the crown to set the exact time.
    Ensure that you are in the daytime12 hour segment by allowing the hands to pass 12 o'clock and notice if the date moved on or not.
    If the date changed, then you will need to advance at least 2 hours before moving on to set the date.
    If you do not need to change the date, return the crown to position 1.


    Setting the Date:
    DO NOT DO THIS IF THE WATCH IS BETWEEN 8pm & 2am
    Pull crown to position 2.
    Rotate the crown clockwise to set to the correct date.
    Return the crown to position 1.


    Setting the Alarm [12 hour]
    Pull the crown to position 2.
    Rotate the crown anti clockwise to move the alarm hand to the desired time.
    Return the crown to position 1.
    To activate the alarm, press the 8 o'clock button. You will hear 2 beeps.
    To deactivate the alarm, press the 8 o'clock button. You will hear 1 beep.
    NB If the alarm is not cancelled while it sounds the first time, it will repeat again in 2 minutes time. The alarm sound last for 15 seconds. If the alarm time coincides with 1 beep of the countdown, the alarm function will be cancelled.


    Battery EOL [End Of Life]
    The Swiss ISA 8270 movement uses a 395 cell and will signify a low power state by advancing the small seconds hand 4 steps every 4 seconds.


    Setting the Countdown
    You can specify a countdown of between 1 and 10 minutes.
    Press the 4 o'clock button to enter setting mode. You will hear 1 beep.
    Press the 4 o'clock button to move the central timing hand successively to the desired countdown time.
    Wait 3 seconds for the watch to automatically exit the setting mode.
    You can change the duration of the countdown [except in the last minute] at any time.
    e.g. If the countdown is set to 10minutes, and you now want to change the countdown to 9 minutes, press the 4 o'clock button. The hours/seconds counter sub-dial will perform one complete turn and then stop at 60, before continuing.


    Activating the Countdown:
    Press the 2 o'clock button to start the countdown. You will hear 2 beeps.
    The hours/seconds counter sub-dial will perform one complete turn and then stop at 60, before continuing.
    When the countdown begins, the hour/seconds counter sub-dial indicates the seconds with 1 step every 2 seconds, and the central timing hand indicates the minutes with 1 step being 2.4 seconds.


    Countdown tone:
    There are 2 beeps every minute.
    in the last minute:
    50 seconds=1 beep.
    40 seconds=1 beep.
    30 seconds=2 beeps.
    20 seconds=2 beeps.
    10 seconds and less=1 beep every second with zero being 1 second long beep. Timer function automatically starts.


    Timer:
    After countdown has finished the timer starts automatically.
    The central timing hand indicates the minutes with 1 step every 12 seconds. The hour/minutes counter sub-dial indicates the hours up to a maximum of 96.
    Press the 4 o'clock button to see the timer seconds [display lasts up to a minute].
    Press the 4 o'clock button to see the timer hours.
    The timer has a maximum time of 96 hours [4 days] after which the hour/seconds sub-dial counter will stay at 0 and the central timing hand will stay at 12.


    Start/Stop Timer:
    Press the 2 o'clock button to stop the timer. You will hear 1 beep.
    Press the 2 o'clock button to resume the timer. You will hear 2 beeps.


    Setting the Countdown & Timer:
    Countdown reset:
    Press the 2 o'clock button to stop the countdown. You will hear 1 beep.
    Press the 4 o'clock button to reset.


    Setting the Timer:
    Press the 2 o'clock button to stop the timer. The hour/seconds counter sub-dial will show the elapsed hours and the central timing hand the elapsed minutes.
    Press the 4 o'clock button to view the seconds elapsed on the hour/seconds counter sub-dial.
    Press the 4 o'clock button to reset.


    Resetting the Hands:
    If the hands do not zero correctly, which might occur after a battery change or a violent shock, you can make adjustments by doing the following settings as long as the countdown is not in operation.
    To correct the hour/seconds counter sub-dial, pull the crown out to position 2 and wait 1 second.
    Press either the 2 or 4 o'clock button; the central timing hand will turn and stop [not necessarily at 12].
    Press the 2 o'clock button to increment the hours/seconds counter sub-dial hand to position it at 60.
    To correct the central timing hand, press the 4 o'clock button to increment the hand to the 12 position.
    Return the crown to position 1.



    If the battery had been replaced, the central timing hand defaults to the 10 minute position. If the battery had not been replaced, the central timing hand will return to the previously set position.

    Re-set quartz chronograph sweeping second hand


    Easy Soultion worked for me. Believe Me I was worried only had the Seiko Sportura for a week now. My second dial for the stopwatch was re-setting to 5 seconds instead of zero. The Solution is
    1. pull the Crown all the way out ( In the position you take the crown to set the time , second click ).
    2. To set the minute face of stop watch , keep pressing the top button untill it is zero. To set the second needle to zero keep pressing the bottom button untill it reaches zero or where you like it to re-set each time. Depend on you.
    3. Once all neddles of stopwatch are at resting postions ( usually zero) secure the crown back to its normal postion. Test your stop watch , hopefully it will go back to zero when you press the reset button. C

    Luminox 8152 chrono


    If you have your instruction manual it should tell you how to reset the chrono. i have the Luminox 8352 and it says to pull the crown out to the 3rd position. then press and hold both the start/stop and lap/reset buttons for a couple of seconds. you'll see the second hand rotate, then you can single click the start/stop button to manually move the second hand 1 second, or you can hold it and it will continue move for a longer period until time desired. if you need to adjust the other chrono hands, click the lap/reset button and then you can click the start/stop button again. repeat for the minute/hour chrono hand. when you're finished push the crown back in. it might work even though it's a different model, worth a shot? hope that helps. these are really great watches.

    How to set watch


    I just set the time on mine with these instructions 1) With the watch in the regular time display mode (doesn't matter if 12 hour or military time), depress and hold the lower left hand button (mode button). After a few seconds the watch appears to shift to alarm mode and it is blinking. This puts you into the mode for adjusting the alarm.

    2) If you want to adjust time, date, etc rather than alarm time, after you have done step one, simply press that same lower left button again, and then it will put you into the time mode, but this time the time mode is blinking and you can adjust the various components (seconds, minutes, hours) then you can use the upper right hand button to navigate thru seconds, minutes and hours. Then you can change the time with the lower right hand button you can only change the time forward. I hope this helps !!!
