    Chronograph hour hand reset problem

    Hi,

    I recently bought a used Speedmaster, with everything in almost new condition. I've had it for about 6 months now, and recently after using the chronograph, I found that the hour totalizer did not reset back to 12--instead, it is at just before the "10" marking. When I run the chronograph the hour totalizer no longer moves.

    Does this mean the reset mechanism is not catching the hour hand? Is there anything I can do? Since this watch is out of warranty, can I take this to a local watchsmith?

    Thanks so much for your help.

    Welcome to the forum and congrats on Speedy!

    I'm not a watchmaker, so I couldn't tell you what is causing the problem, but it would be fine to take it to someone local to look at.

    Incidentally, what kind of Speedmaster do you have?

    I've got a Speedy Pro--the only way to go. Seeing the chronograph hour hand stuck is really getting to me... I will probably have to spend quite a bit to get it fixed.

    I'd try not to stress out about it too much, yet. The c.x861 is a pretty straightforward movement and parts, if necessary, shouldn't be too difficult to source.

    Hang in there and good luck.
