Question about Watches
Have an older Marine star (80's) with What appears to be a "motor drive" that will set the hour/minute hands going clockwise or counter if you quickly twist the stem. They roll along until you get close to the time, then a reverse turn stops it. I am sure it wears the batteries out sooner, but have never seen a watch that set this way.

Take it to your citizen dealer. There is probably a problem with the actual movement of the watch and unless you know how to take the watch apart and diagnose the movement then you would not be able to figure it out.

I have a Surface Watch. Not sure if it's the same model number, but the button set up is the same. Here's what I did:
Hold down the bottom right button. While you're holding it down, press the top right button. My bottom right button doesn't seem to always work, so it made it rather difficult to figure out what has going on.

SOURCE: watch running fast about 5
mcdevito75 here, Depending on how new your IWC watch is, without running at all can be bad in the way that the oil in the movement can settle and more or less drain off the moveing parts, and without the oil distributed thru out the movement, your watch could run a bit fast. Re--starting your watch as you"ve done will help, re-distribute the oil, in the mean time switch your watches position on your wrist every couple of hours, crystal on top of wrist, then 2--3 hours later crystal turnned under the wrist, it may take a day or two for the condition to correct itself, if I'm right. Hopefully you have a warrantee with IWC on your watch. Hope this helps.

Testimonial: "good feedback. hopefully will work "
I have the exact same issue with the minute hand resting at the 1 minute mark and now I have condensation under the glass. The watch is only 2 months old so I think I will return it.
