Question about Watches

1 Answer

I have a Tissot PR 50 Chrono,,, I have replaced the battery 3 times in the past two years. Then it got to where the second hand only would run. Now, nothing. If I hold the lower button in, the second hand runs around clockwise at a rapid rate, but once I let go it stops. Is this another battery problem or something else?

When a battery is replaced, but doesn't last long, that indicates an internal electrical problem with your watch. The fact that the hands are operating incorrectly is also an indicator that something has shorted out inside the watch. I wish whomever sold you batteries 2 & 3 knew what they were doing!
As the Tissot is a fairly expensive, quality watch, I would suggest finding a locally-owned, high-end jeweler to recommend a watch repair shop, or alternatively, go online and Google "Tissot repair" to find an authorized repair shop. Good luck! Sorry I couldn't help you.

The date and time are changing by themselves


I had the problem with locking on chrono function. Then I decide to replace battery, after replacement watches become crazy, hands were moving all the time, it was impossible to stop it. I remove the battery and leave watches on the table for 5-6 days, then install the battery again. No problem any more, all functions are available. May be you have the same kind of problem. Good luck!

Touch function is not working


I had the same issue. After installing the battery and trying to calibrate several times... to no avail.I tried pressing the T button, keeping it pressed down and then install the battery. It give you a mode or function setting ( I'm not sure what it means). i then press the T button and it cycles through these mode setting. I synchronized the hands and then was able to get the: altimeter, compass, meteo, date and time working. The temp, chrono still doesn't work.
I think getting all the functions to work, depends on the mode setting... but i don't know the correct setting.

SECOND HAND - INVICTA MODEL 2692


Hi Ed,

I have been in the industry for the past 2 years as a watchmaker's assistant. So I'll see if I can help.

The larger second hand you see in this Chronograph model, using it is only available in the Chronograph mode.

How long a battery should last (if I had a dollar for everytime I've heard that one! :)

Well generally a battery should last about 2 years. It all depends on how many functions that watch has, as for a chrono the more you use that function the more the battery power it uses. I have not seen this watch but as it looks to be the 'standard' kind of format of a chronograph, just one battery would surfice.

In regards to 1/10 lap, please take the to a watchmaker as the hands need to be reset, this either can be done manually or can be done by pulling out the crown slightly (please as if you are to forcefull you will pull the crown and stem out) NOT GOOD!. if you pull it out to 'quick date change' where only the date can be changed try pressing one of the pushers and see which sub dial hands move, if that doesn't work try the other pusher.

Again if the above doesn't work, pull the crown out to time set mode (where you can adjust the time) and try the same steps as above. If this fails and it's still off, take it to a watchmaker and he/she will realign the hands for you!

Kind Regards
Shenlun

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.

How do I use my watch???


I also own a PRS200. The two buttons on the right and top two subdials are for the chronometer function.

The top right button starts and stops the chronometer function: First press starts the chrono. Second press freezes/stops it, so you can record your time. Third press resets the chrono.

The bottom button is for the lap function: on the first press, it freezes the chrono in order for you to be able to record your "lap time", but keeps the chrono running in the background (you don't see this, it's the movement that does this mechanically). When you press it a second time, it jumps back to the running chrono time. You can then press it again to get another lap time, and so on...

In chrono mode, the top right subdial shows the milliseconds, the second hand shows the seconds, and the top left subdial shows the minutes (up to 30 minutes).

I also own a PRS200. The sub dial at the top left shows the minute count when you use the chronometer function. In chrono mode, the top right subdial shows the milliseconds, the second hand shows the seconds, and the top left subdial shows the minutes (up to 30 minutes).

Tissot PRS 200 cannot reset counter hand (the counter stuck especially in the morning)


The owners manual mentions how to fix this but the instructions are not 100% clear. You can download the PRS200 manual here:
http://www.tissot.ch/data/usersmanual/134-en.pdf

Each of the 3 chrono hands are reset separately. Unscrew the crown and pull it all the way out (2 stops out). Press button A (top right) as many times as necessary until the hand is on the 30. Each press moves the hand one tick so you may need to press it several times.

Next push in the crown one click.
Press button B (bottom right) as many times as necessary to advance the 60 second hand to 12'oclock.
Press button A to advance the 1/10th hand to 0.

The part I did not get at first is the fact that you need to press the A and B buttons several times to advance each hand 1 tick at a time until they are all pointing to 12'oclock.
