    Re: Resetting hands on a Carrera Calibre S?

    Hi All,
    I have just bought a used Tag Regatta Cal S, and my question is not actually to do with the hand setting, altho this thread is extremely useful. Thanks.
    My question is, should the crown screw down to be waterproof, cos mine does not appear to, if it should how the hell do you do it?
    Thanks in anticipation, Oh please be gentle with me, if I am being an idiot. The book does not appear to be clear on this.
    Regards, Graham

    AFAIK the crown doesn't screw down, no, and based on the way you change modes (push the crown in), it would be a problem if it did

    Thanks Webvan,
    That's my thinking , so why on page 8 of the instruction manuel does it say "The crown has three positions:-
    -in position (0)
    -Neutral(Position 1)
    -out(Position 2)
    Is it any wonder I was confused!!
    Still a super watch...I love it.
    Regards, Graham.

    Number of positions has nothing to do with it being scewdown or push pull. The carreras and Monacos three positions as well but are push pull crowns.

    any tips on how to set the retrograde counters? mine keep on getting misaligned - going beyond 9 in the right side counter when displaying the date.

    thanks!

    figured it out - pressing a won't let it reset to zero. have to hold down a until the indicator springs back then press a until it aligns.

    follow the instructions of the original poster. when pressing Button "A" adjusts the retrograde hands, hold down button A to reset the retrograde counters. they should reset to the extreme end (before 0) press "A" again until the hands are properly aligned.

    goodluck!
