    Adidas Chronograph: minute dial doesn't go to zero

    Hello everyone!

    I've just bought this used Adidas Toronto Scuba Lux Chronograph on the picture, and all works fine, except that the minute dial (at 9 o'clock) doesn't go to the correct zero position. I guess it needs to be calibrated somehow, but I just couldn't find out how.

    I've tried pulling out the crown to time-setting mode, and pushing the upper and lower chrono buttons (even tried pushing them together). The upper button calibrates the upper (1/10 second? dial), the lower button calibrates the seconds dial, that's fine, but I couldn't figure out the minutes dial.

    The dial seems to be working, counting minutes, just goes to the wrong point when I'm zeroing the chrono. Anyone have an advice on how to set this right?

    Thanks in advance for your help! :)

    What movement ? What does the manual say re re-setting ?
    Usually the sub counter at 9 is the permanent second ?
    Kind regards

    I'm not sure about the movement, but I've made a picture of it:

    Sadly I don't have the manual, and couldn't find it online either.
    The permanent second is the central large second hand, the dial at 9 is definitely the minute counter.

    Now that you suggested the movement, I've looked for VD57B, and found this manual:

    http://www.timemodule.com/upload/PDF/VD57_TG_E.pdf

    And I seem to found my answer. I have to pull out the crown all the way, then push the lower chrono button as long as the seconds subdial turns as much that it moves the minute counter as well, until it reaches the desired zero position. A bit fiddly, but works.

    Now it's only weird that the 1/10 second subdial is stops automatically after 1 minute of starting the measurement with the upper button.
    I guess it's designed to work like that for some reason, but I'm not sure, why. Not that I'd really need such precise measurements, but still, interesting. The seconds and minutes are keep counting after that.
