    Not dumb at all, the chrono second can work it's way out of position.

    It looks pretty good in the pic. If that’s all it’s off I would leave as is. Otherwise, you will have to remove the movement, hold down the reset lever while in the reset position to lock the chrono second wheel, and then tap the chrono second hand to zero position. Don't try and force it if it doesn't move with a tap - remove the chrono second hand with a hand puller. Again, if that’s all it’s off, I’d leave well enough alone...

    I can provide some instructional pics if you really want to make the adjustment.

    I'd really appreciate some pics. Even though I totally lack the requisite expertise, perhaps in the future, armed with the information, I could get a local watchmaker to do it for me as I don't think there are many people out there familiar with Russian watches.

    This is my Poljot Chronograph (Export Model - Made in USSR marked) it has the 3133 movement stamped 'SU'. GREAT running watch and a real favorite of mine because it is just as smooth as a Rolex or Tag. It really needs a new crystal, so can anybody tell me a source for one? It is one of my famously CRAPPY PICTURES! LOL! Any suggestions on a crystal would be much appreciated! 3133 movements are AWESOME in anybody's book. Open o e up and it's just a work of art IMHO!
    I was thinking of the immortal words of Socrates, who said "....I drank what?"
