You've probably heard people go on and on about the "sweep" or talk about how top quality watches don't make that tell-tale "tick-tock." For all intents and purposes, these people are right. When you pick up a Cartier or Chopard, the tiny hand measuring the passage of seconds glides effortlessly, like a toothless hockey player. In actuality, all wristwatches tick-tock. However, in a true quality watch, the internal mechanism (the movement) is so finely tuned and so well constructed, that these ticks happen as often as nine times a second, producing a flawless sweep. This is the difference between a five-dollar movement and a movement costing hundreds of dollars.

WHY DOESNT THE SECOND HAND MOVE?


It probably isn't the second hand, but the sweep timer hand that is only used in Chronograph mode. If it is indeed the small second hand down at the bottom of the watch face, try pulling the crown, and moving the hands and then depress the crown again.

    2 - Push the bottom button on the left-hand side of the watch until the hours flash and then the top button on the right-hand side of the watch to increase the hour on the watch display. Note that "PM" will appear on the watch display for PM times, but there is no "AM" indicator on the display.


    3 - Press the bottom button on the left-hand side of the watch until the minutes flash on the display.Press the top button on the right-hand side of the watch to increase the minutes on the display.


    4 - Repeat to set the month, date and weekday on the watch. Press the top button on the left-hand side of the watch to return to time mode.

Press one more time to stop timing. Press the top button on the left-hand side of the watch to reset the stopwatch to zero and the bottom button on the left-hand side of the watch to return to time mode.


    6 - Press the bottom button on the left-hand side of the watch twice to set the alarm. Press the top button on the left-hand side of the watch until the hours flash on the display. Press the bottom button on the left-hand side of the watch until the alarm number flashes. Press the top button on the right-hand side of the watch to choose Alarm Time 1 or Alarm Time 2. Push the bottom button on the left-hand side of the watch again until the hours flash.

    How to get the second hand to move


    If you are referring to the large orange colored hand, it is NOT the second hand. It is the hand of the depth indicator when the watch is used for diving. Or it is the timer hand when the watch is used as a stop-watch. The second hand is actually on the bottom sub-dial.

    Second hand doesnt move. The ''stop watch'' second hand moves instead of the ''main'' second hand. also the stopwatch feature doesn't work. My watch is a Fossil Blue Titanium model TI-5071


    Sounds like a job for Fossil!

    Go to their web site "www.fossil.com" and at the bottom of their page is a menu which includes "store locator".

    My Stauer Atomic won't stay connected to time signal


    These watches only need to see a signal several times a day, not necessarily continuously.

    If it keeps good time, don't worry about it.

    Large second hand not running, Stop Watch function?


    Hey, it sounds like your watch is just fine! A nice watch to inherit.
    The small second hand on the sub-dial is your normal second hand.
    The large second hand is the second timer for your chronograph feature.
    It should only move when you hit the side buttons. One of them (usually the top plunger/ button) will start the Chrono timer and then hitting it again will stop it. The bottom button should reset the hand to the 12 o'clock/ zero marker.
    If the large hand is not functioning at all then there may be something wrong with the watch; perhaps the buttons are not making full contact within the watch or the hand may be stuck and need repair.
    Hope this answers your questions. Post more questions if need be.
    Congrats on your new watch.

    Need to know how to operate Cartier Tank Francaise Chronography W


    The top button is for chronograph function and puts the chronograph seconds hand in motion. The bottom button is for resetting chronograph seconds hand to zero.
    Do as follows:
    1) push the top button once- seconds hand starts moving,
    2) push the top button once more- seconds hand stops,
    3) push the bottom button once- seconds hand returns to zero.
    You can repeat as many times as you like- seconds hand will allways start the countdown from zero.
    Depending on what movement your watch has(mechanical or quartz), there can be more variations, but the basics are as described.
    If you need more info, supply full info of your watch(make, model, numbers, etc.), please.
    Do not forget to rate, please.
