    Confused Hamilton Chrono-matic Cal11 second hand wont reset to 12

    Like the title suggests, the second hand won't reset to 12, it even increases its place with 0.5 second for each time I try. Watch service service centers in the area I live (Trondheim, Norway) don't have much experience with vintage watches (or Hamilton watches). What can I do?

    Well, the Hamilton website mentions only a service center of the Swatch Group (which Hamilton is a part of) in Oslo. My suggestion would be finding an independent watchmaker (not in any watch/jewelry store- just a workshop), make sure that he has experience with mechanical watches (avoid the ones who are capable only of changing batteries in quartz watches), and there you go. I think we have someone else from Norway here in F11 as well, so maybe someone will be able to recommend you a good watchmaker in your area. Also, you can ask about that in the Public forum- maybe someone there will be able to help?

    Don't bother and sell it to me comes to mind ;)

    There should be a good independant watchmaker in Norway. Maybe ask around on FB or on a local forum.

    I'm not parting with this baby, sorry GhentWatch :D

    Thanks for your suggestions :) I asked around and found a watchmaker who wanted to at least take a look at it. He also fixed it pretty quickly, something was loose. Woho!
