    ETA 251.262 (Maurice Lacroix Miros Chrono Diver) faulty chronograph? Help needed.

    I've bought unworn Maurice Lacroix Miros Chrono Diver watch and need some help: watch is running, but chronograph doesn't response to push buttons, it does nothing. When crown is in position 0 or 1, chronograph hour and 1/10 hands are not zeroed (1st picture), when crown is set to position 2 (or 3), hands move quickly to new positions (2nd picture) and vice versa. I can't set the counters to zero according to the manual, no response to the push buttons in either crown position, no chronograph start/stop/zero function. Is that something wrong with the watch or am I missing something or the watch should be "reset" (battery removed and insert back)? For the moment I haven't got watch case opener, so haven't tried to open the watch. Is it possible, that battery is weak? The watch is ca. 1.5 years old. Thanks for advice.

    I'd try a new battery first. Also, they made some of these in a LE of 999 pieces that had the ETA 251.232 TC movement in them. You might want to check this out. I'm not sure that ML made a COSC quartz chrono with 251.262, but I have certainly been wrong before. Could possibly need a new circuit board ($35 if 251.262) or a complete movement replacement. I'm betting on the battery.

    Thanks. There was included ETA 251.262 manual with it, so that's why I supposed that movement.

    Good news, I sort it out! I pressed the push-buttons too gently, I should have to pushed them much "harder" until "click" was felt and the chronograph start working! Once I got "know-how" it wasn't any problem to set the counter hands to zero one-by-one. So far so good!
    This is my first chronograph watch and first HEQ watch at all, so still learning...
