    Formula 1 Chrono Resets at 58s and also looses time

    Hi all, my Formula 1 Red Chrono CAH1112.ERC0213 has been loosing time for past few weeks, around 2-3 minutes it looses in a week or so. Watch is only 3 years old or less and battery was recently replaced. While playing around I noticed that second hand resets at 58s, could it be related. Haven't tried to reset it yet, just want some expert opinion before doing anything.

    I suspect the "new" battery was not...

    Loosing time is unrelated to the chrono second hand not resetting to 12. Just a coincidence...

    Resetting the chronograph hands is a simple process. Do a search in this forum for the video I posted a while back. But it sounds like you need another battery.

    Thanks for replies everyone, did a second hand reset and will see what happens in a few days. Just before I reset the second hand, tried one more time and it was resetting at 48s.

    agree some so called new batteries may have sat in a warehouse or such like for years before they actually get used.Only way to find out for sure is to put a multimeter or such like on the battery itself.

    It has been running fine till last night, this morning lost 15 minutes. Second hand is not jumping 4 seconds at a time, could it still be the battery?

    If it is the same battery, yes.

    If battery is known good, other problems exist.

    Battery was replaced a year ago. Synchronised with Emerald Time iPhone app yesterday at the time of my post and it has already lost 15 seconds this morning.

    Re-replace the battery with a tested and known good battery before assuming any other problems. These problems are usually due to dying batteries.
