Hi,
all you need to do is pull the centre bezel out (to where you adjust the time) and by pressing the top button the chronograph needle will move round. Once it is the correct place simply push the centre bezel back in.

Hope this helps.

Stormer has the right idea but is incomplete in the solution. Quartz chronographs often need the hands zeroed when the battery has run down and been replaced. This instruction is a generic one. Your watch may differ in the sequence things happen. Good news is "Jesus loves you" and you can't do any harm to your watch trying different sequences. So first of all you have probably three hands that need to be zeroes. The sweep second hand, the minute hand for the chronograph and the hour hand for the chronograph. Don't confuse these with the min and hr hands that tell the time. Pull the crown(not bezel) out to the first position. Now push the upper button and see which hand moved. If it is the sweep seconds hand hold the button until the hand lines up with the 12 o'clock position. Now try the bottom button. If the the minute recorder or hour recorder moved then set it to the 12 position. If nothing happened move on to the next step. Pull the crown out to the 2nd position. I bet you are already pushing a button. If a hand moved then set it to 12. Try the other button. By this time all three should be pointing to the 12 o'clock position. Now push the crown in all the way. start the chronograph(upper button usually) and stop it(upper button also). Now press the lower button. All ahands should move to the 12 position. Oh, and don't forget the good news!

I just bought a police kickers timepieces watch i dont know how to set the day i've tried hundreds of time but its not working can some one help me !!


Since you have stated ABSOLUTELY nothing about provinance... model, year... owners manual POLICE being a pretty decent watch from the UK (I'm going to skip right on past the AUTHENTIC notion... Chronograph (shown).

If your your watch is a REGULAR knock-off (replicant)... t has the miyota movement...

A highly precise and reliable motor
in it's own right.
(sets very much like the high end valjoux cousins)

It is a crown-set... typically a three position stem set.

Force nothing... !!

Some GENTLY unscrew the crown... others will pull out
to set: 1, TIMW 2, DATE... THREE (back to normal -closed).
.
In the closed position

The stop/start butons do precisely that on those SUB-DIALS.

In the SET positions the start/reset buttons are used to ZERO those sub-dials (press & hold... then individual clicks will move each hand to zero).

Hope this helps!

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.

HOW TO WORK THE SUB DIALS


This is an Architect Chronograph. To start the chronograph press the top start button. To stop it press it again. To reset it press the reset or bottom button. The sub dials are minutes, hours, and seconds.

Resetting stopwatch dials - Armani AR5331


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).

Rate me, please.

What are the dials? How do you set knobs? Can't move center knob.


The 3 dials are the chronograph for timing an event such as motor racing(a stop watch). The centre know (the crown) has to be unscrewned counter clockwise and then pulled out from the case at, first stage will allow changes to date, second to set the time.
The outside bezel is used as a means of measuring time, eg. 20min, from a random starting point and is often used for 'oxygen' time for diving.
