My CL1111 (after having new battery fitted) now has the stopwatch hands not pointing toward 12. I have tried to loosen the crown fully then adjust "seconds" timer hand (then tighten crown) This works great for the "seconds" hand. How do I re-position the "minutes" + 1/10th of seconds hands??
Chronograph Zero Reset
This procedure should be performed when the chronograph second and 1/20 second hands do not return to the zero position after the chronograph has been reset.
1. Pull crown out to position 3.
2. Press A to set chronograph second hand to the zero position. Press and hold A to move the hand quickly.
3. Press B to set chronograph 1/20 second hand to the zero position. Press and hold B to move the hand quickly.
4. Once the hands are "zeroed," reset time and return crown to position 1.
5. Press B to check that chronograph hands are reset to zero position.
Note: Do not return crown to position 1 while chronograph second hand or chronograph 1/20 second hand is returning to zero. Doing so will cause the position of the hands to be recognized as the new zero position.
It's easy to fix yourself! Unscrew the crown all the way and pull out until it reaches the stop position. Then hold both buttons down until the second hand does a full rotation around the clock face. Now yu can use the top button to adjust it forward a second and the bottom button to adjust it back. Mine sometimes doesn't respond but if you keep trying it will work and you can reset it without sending it off to get it fixed... hope this helps - from www.zigzag.digital!

If the stopwatch facility is a digital LCD display, then you probably have a watch with TWO batteries. One for the electronics and one for the analogue hands movement. The Electronics circuit board can be lifted out, revealing the smaller hands battery.
As jimmyguru said. 1. Pull the crown to the second position (all the way out) 2. Push and hold the reset button and allow the chronograph hand to rotate near the 12 o'clock position. 3. Release the reset button. 4. Repeatedly push and release the reset button to find tune the hand position until it is right at 12 o'clock. 5. Push the crown back in.
let's call the top stopwatch button "a" and the bottom stopwatch button "b." eg, for normal stop watch function press "a" to start timing, press "a" to stop timing, and press "b" to reset.
to reset: press button "a" and "b" simultaneously and release (an easy way to do this is press and hold down "b" then press "a" and release both). this will send both hands spinning. next press "a" intermittently until the second-hand is back to it's desired reset location. then, likewise, press "b" intermittently until the minute hand is zeroed. now with both hands at the correct reset location, again press and release "a" and "b" simultaneously to save these resets and return the watch to normal function mode.
When you reset the big seconds hand to zero, the hour and the minute hand are not engaged in this function, so, there is no fault with the watch movement. Do as follows: 1) pull out crown and set the hour and minute hands at 6 o'clock (they must be lined perfectly in opposite directions) 2) push the crown in half way back (not completely) 3) push and hold the button at 2 o'clock (set the big seconds hand to zero) and release it when done 4) when big seconds hand is zeroed push the crown back in 5) pull the crown out again and set desired time 6) push the crown back in. If all actions described do not work, you will have to visit your nearest watch repair shop and ask to refit chronograph hand as in this case it is out of balance (not pointed at exact mark).
Your watch has quartz movement and stopwatch adjustment by one step (one full second) only. That means you will not be able to adjust stopwatch hand by using pushers on your watch as each push of the pusher will advance stopwatch hand for the full second, not the fifth or the tenth of the second, and the hand will stay slightly off anyway. This happenened because the IC (integrated circuit) in your watch miscalculated the teeth count on chronograph wheel and stopped one or two teeth past or under the zero point. It doesn't happen very often, but in your case it did and the only solution is to find your nearest watch repair shop and ask for resetting stopwatch hand to zero. This procedure needs partial disassembling of the watch and quite a great skill as the stopwatch hand must be removed and then refitted with great accuracy. All this needs to be done by very specialized tools as well. I think this is the only solution of your problem unless you can live with that and just leave it as it is. Do not forget to rate, please.
Pull crown out to position 2 [in between unscrewed (1) and pulled all the way out (3)]. Tap Button B (bottom) to reset by step back to zero.
Incidentally, Button A works Hours register in same manner for position 2. You can similarly reset second and 1/10th with Buttons A and B, respectively, while in position 3. Cheers!
There are three adjustment knobs on the right side of the watch. Two are smaller than the main time adjustment knob. For clarification I will label:
Top knob: #1
Middle knob: #2
Bottom knob: #3
To adjust the stopwatch feature:
1. Turn #2 counter-clockwise until it pops out to its adjusting position.
2. Pull #2 towards the right until you feel the first click. (There are two click positions).
3. Simultaneously hold both #1 and #3 down until you see the 1/16 hand and the 30 minute hand rotate automatically to a fixed position.
Now you are ready to calibrate the stopwatch feature.
4. Click mulitiple times on #3 and you will see the 30 min. had move clock wise incrementally with every click. Keep clicking on #3 until the 30 min. hand reaches its apex (to its 12:00 position).
5. Now click multiple times on #1 and you will see the 1/16th hand move in very small increments clockwise. You may be bold and try to hold down #1 and let it swing as close as possible to the 12:00 position and then multiple click #1 to get it precisely to its apex.
You are almost done.
6. Now simultaneously hold #1 and #3 until you see both the 1/16th second hand and the 30 minute hands auto-rotate clockwise to their respective 12:00 positions.
Fantastic! However, now you have to return the watch back to its original locked position. This is where it could get a little tricky.
7. Make sure the time is correct. Using #2 fully extended to its 2nd click position you may adjust the time.
8. Using #2 extended to its 1st click position you may adjust the date. (Here's the trick, do not set the date for today's date. Rather, set it for the day before or in some cases, 2 days before. I will explain in a moment).
9. Now, depress #2 fully back towards the main body of the watch as best as possible and while holding down #2 turn it clockwise until it locks into position.
During this operation you may notice that the date will go forward until the watch locks into position, ergo, I had to make sure the date was for the day before...and it some cases, 2 days before.
Your watch is ready to use.
The stopwatch feature for this analog watch works very similarly to that of an actual stopwatch.
Press and hold #1 once to stop the 1/16 hand. Press and hold #3 to have both the 1/16th second hand and the 30 minute hands return to their 12:00 positions. Now you are ready to race!
Press #1 to start the stopwatch. Press #1 to stop the stopwatch. Press #3 to return the hands back to their respective positions. You may even press #3 after you press #1 to get a second reading but I will let you figure that out for yourself.
