SOURCE: Festina Dashboard watch - Adjusting the hand of the stopwatch

Your watch has quartz movement and stopwatch adjustment by one step (one full second) only. That means you will not be able to adjust stopwatch hand by using pushers on your watch as each push of the pusher will advance stopwatch hand for the full second, not the fifth or the tenth of the second, and the hand will stay slightly off anyway.
This happenened because the IC (integrated circuit) in your watch miscalculated the teeth count on chronograph wheel and stopped one or two teeth past or under the zero point. It doesn't happen very often, but in your case it did and the only solution is to find your nearest watch repair shop and ask for resetting stopwatch hand to zero.
This procedure needs partial disassembling of the watch and quite a great skill as the stopwatch hand must be removed and then refitted with great accuracy. All this needs to be done by very specialized tools as well.
I think this is the only solution of your problem unless you can live with that and just leave it as it is.

SOURCE: 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).

SOURCE: 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.

The sweep hands don't align back to zero after replacing battery


Pull out the stem to the second position then push the chronograph start/stop button a few times to move the minute hand to the zero position. Then pull the stem out to the 3rd position and adjust the second hand again by pushing the start/stop (top) button to move it to the zero position. Once you get them both to top zero push the stem back all the way and screw it in tight. Tim

Reset Stopwatch Hands on CL1111 ?


Try setting the crown to position 2 - i.e. the position normally used to adjust the date.  Then use the top and bottom stopwatch buttons to adjust the minute hand and 1/10th hand respectively.

Analog clock not in sync with digital clock


This problem may be due to your analog hands being improperly zeroed. To find out, try this: 1. Put the watch in chronograph mode by rotating the crowon in its normal position to "chr" 2. Pull out the crown two clicks. This should cause all of the hands to point to zero. If you do this and your minute hand points to 1 o'clock, or five minutes, you will know that this is the problem. If this is the problem, you can can correct it by zeroing the hands as follows: 1. Put the watch in chronograph mode by rotating the crowon in its normal position to "chr" 2. Pull out the crown two clicks. This should cause all of the hands to point to zero, or close to it. You should also notice the letters "HR" in the lefthand digital display. This allows you to move the hour hand by rotating the crown. If the hour hand is not pointing at 12 o'clock, rotate it so that it does. 3. Push the top button once. The letters "MIN" should appear in the lefthand digital display. This allows you to move the minute hand on the large dial, and the minute and hour hands on the small UTC dial. Rotate the crown so that the minute hand points directly to 12 o'clock. 4. Push the top button again. The letters "SEC" should appear in the lefthand digital display. Rotate the crown to point the second hand directly at 12 o'clock. 5. Push the crown back into its normal position. Set the digiatl time and date in your tie zone, and your analog hands should match the digital read-out. If the zeroing of the hands is not the problem, I don't know what is wrong with the watch.
