    If I remember this thread correctly, it answers these questions. It's frustrating but easily fixed. That's why we made this appear at the top of the forum.

    Hope this helps.

    I must be in the boat Stu was in, I reset the hour hand multiple times from the 6 o clock to the 12 o clock position, then press the crown to return to the time. If I press the crown again to enter the chrono mode the hour marker returns to the 6 o clock position again. What the heck am I doing wrong or is this thing broke?

    Re: Resetting hands on a Carrera Calibre S?

    Hi,
    I have a Swiss Army Victorinox 500M Chrono Quartz (ETA 251.272), the hour hand of the chrono is off the 12 hour mark by 1/3 anti-clockwise, actually that it is between the 11 and 12 hour mark, but somewhat more towards the 12 hour mark.

    Does the above mentioned procedure also imply on other quartz chrono watches, and also does anybody know a procedure on how to reset the chrono on a Swiss Army with ETA movement.

    Thanks.

    ETA maintains user manuals for all its current movements on the service portal section of eta.ch.... find out the movement number and then look it up on that site.

    Re: Resetting hands on a Carrera Calibre S?

    Hello mate.

    I have a Calibre S retrograde (CV7A10). My problem is, that when I read the time - for instance 1200 hrs, the minute hand is correct, however, the hour hand is approx 30 minutes to the left (sort of in the 1130 position). I dont have the instructions, so can you please (if you would be so kind) as to identify, which button on the watch is A, B etc. Thanks very much. Rus in the UK.

    Hi, I have a CV7A10 (Tag Calibre S Retrograde). I am having problems setting the hour hand. It is not aligned (currently half an hour to the left). I have read the instructions, but there are no troubleshooting tips. Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated. When I pull out the crown, the second hand does not allign correctly to any of the settings (5 secs, 15 secs, 45 secs etc). please please help.... Thanks...

    Looks like a lot of you are having the same simular proplem here is a link to a manual with several watches in it along with how to reset the Hands. (I found it looking for the same problem for a CALIBRE ETA 251.272 )

    the calibre S is a different animal. The usual quartz resetting procedures do not apply.
