Question about Invicta 2306 Wrist Watch

1 Answer

When the watch sits for a period of time, usually overnight or longer, the second hand stops moving and it stops keeping time. When I reset the time it is fine until I let it sit again. Any ideas on this?

If this watch works while on your arm but not when it sits it is probably caused by the oils in the movement drying out. The warmth from your body heats them and allows them to become semi liquid again which in turn allows the watch to run. When the watch cools the oils become too thick and stop the watch.

A cleaning and service can correct this problem.

Hope this helps.

The second hand will not re-set to zero. It has stopped. The watch works perfectly during the day apart from the second hand not moving, but , the watch stops at 11.15 at night. When I get up in the...


This is a symptom of what is usually several possible issues:

1) The most common is that the battery must be changed. Insist on Energizer batteries only (as they do not leak) and visit your local Certified Master Horologist for assistance in changing the battery and resetting the watch.
2) The movement must be serviced every 3-5 years by a qualified professional. Dust and debris can cause the symptom of stopping and starting the movement. If you have owned it for less time than this, remember that the watch may have been manufactured and in the retail location longer than this period of time before it was purchased.
3) The movement is defective or damaged. If the watch is under warranty, and it was purchased through an authorized dealer, Armani will take care of this issue for you at no charge.

To properly assess this issue, I recommend taking the first step, as a CMH also has the proper tools to test the movement and battery to determine the best next course of action.

How do you reset the second hand so it sits at the 12 o clock position on an Ingersoll diamond automatic chronograph watch


I don't know if it's the same, but I just solved this problem on a Victorinox (Swiss Army) Chrono Classic XLS. The process involves:
1) Pulling the plunger out to position 3 2) Holding both buttons down for 2 seconds 3) When the hands stop moving press the top button. Each time it's pressed it will advance the second hand one tick. Keep tapping the top button until the second hand is in the 12 position. 4) Push the plunger in.

Bulova 96R31 keeps time + date, but the chronograph does not work


The problem is in chronograph module or related gear train. To find what exactly the problem is, special tools and equipment is needed as well as watchmakers knowledge and skill. There may be just an underpowered battery, but according to your explanation, I tend to think that the first causes mentioned by me are the right ones. Visit your nearest watch repair shop and ask to check your watch for any faults. Rate me, please.

Need to reset the tachymeter on my Guess Steel watch . The dial resets it's self to the "7" location instead of "12" on my watch. Is there a way to recalibrate the watch?


This is chronometer that's need reset. Tachymeter is usually located on bezel or inclined ring and is used for speed calculations of moving object over the given period of time. Ok, back to your chrono hand resetting. Pull out crown and then push the upper button and hold it. The chrono hand should start move and you should be able to adjust it. If this doesn't work, try the same with lower button. When adjusted - push the crown back in. In fact there are very many variations how to reset chrono hand, but exact advise can be given if the movement caliber of particular watch is known.
Rate me, plz.

My Wittnauer is jumping every 5 seconds


Your watch is fitted with EOL feature and let you know about insufficient battery power by moving seconds hand by 2-5-second increments. You have about two weeks time to change the battery from the EOL engagement or your watch will start to malfunction or even stop. In this case you will have to reset your watch after battery replacement. EOL = End Of Life (relates to battery only). Jumping seconds hand means it's time to change battery.

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.

The second hand of my Tissot watch T870/970 starts and stops.


Hello!
Absolutely astonished by this "solution" from escapement.
This watch is working perfectly - it is simply giving its "end of battery life warning".

I have a seiko flight watch, unknown of the model, second hand doesn't reset


I guess the blue faced SEIKO is a Flightmaster (Model: 7T92- OCFO)and it is a great watch. This is a common problem with most chronographs and this happens due to misalignment with usage.

All you need to do is pull out the locking crown all the way out (2nd Step) as if setting time. and then press and hold the top / left button and at first the milli seconds hand resets. after which you have to press the borrom / right button to move the seconds hand in to place. and then reset the time and lock the crown. You can repeat this for Milli Seconds, Seconds, Minutes & hours hands.
Hope this helps,

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.

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


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.
