    Question What Does This Button Do?

    I've seen pics of watches that have this button on the side of the bezel (bottom pic). Not sure what it is intended for.

    Anyone??

    Most likely a push of that (with tip of a pen or something) will advance the month, date,etc (look at what is on the face near that button).

    Can't tell exactly

    Either it is a helium escape valve (doubtful) or s pusher to adjust some setting on the dial, like month, moon, or such...

    Check out some of the very complicated Pateks, or an Omega triple date and you will see the same thing used for that.

    Not sure what watch that is, but some of the Sinn's have something similar to view a capsule to absorb any moisture that may enter the case.

    Really kinda looks like an HRV though.

    Which watch are you talking about?????

    If it's a quartz watch it could be used for a wide variety of things from setting the date to zeroing the hands. If it's a mechanical it could be used to set a complication like the GMT hand or a moon phase.

    HEV or can also be for the bezel like on a Breitling Airwolf.

    It's a self-destruct button.

    It could also be the activation button for a homing device.


    ....or maybe I just watch too many movies.

    Re: What Does This Button Do?

    A lot of watches have Valjoux 7753 movements (automatic chrono with 3/6/9 subdials, date usually at 6). Those have the date adjustment at pusher at 10, usually recessed (something Orient could learn about). The stem only has positions 1 & 2 for winding and time setting.

    The pictured watch is similar to that situation, but not the same (pusher is at 8?).
