Tag Heuer Aquaracer reset red hand

Hi,

I am trying to reset the red hand on my watch to the "12" position. The manual seems to refer to this as the GMT hand that indicates a second time zone. I know how to reset the 1/10 second hand and the second hand but I can not seem to find anyway of resetting the red hand on my chronograph. I do not see anything in the manual that explains how to do this. Any assistance you can offer would be much appreciated.

Very nice! I just had my battery changed by a jewelry shop in LA, and when I got it back the reset point for all the stopwatch functions were screwed up. the guy gave me a "not my problem" answer and I thought I'd have to send it in. thanks to this forum I got it figured out. thanks!!

The red hand is not for GMT on the chronograph model (the one with push-buttons above and below the crown) but for chronograph (stopwatch) seconds. It can be adjusted with the crown pulled out into either the first or second setting position- I forget which, you'll have to try each one out- and then pushing one of the buttons to advance it to zero (again, I forget which button, you'll need to try them both out). The small seconds sub-dial at the 6'oclock position is for constant seconds, not chronograph seconds, and cannot be set, but only stopped at whatever position you want and then restarted again, by pulling the crown all the way out to the second position, and then pushing it back in again at the right moment.

    Pull the crown out 1 level, bottom button then advances the red hand. Advance it to the position you want then push the crown in and tighten it.

You have to push the button repeatedly not hold it down or press it once as you would to get it to reset to 12.

There a four (4) setting positions using the two crowm positions and the two pushbuttons. The combination yields all four required settings in the rest position.
1. Seconds,2. Minutes, 3. hours, 4 1/10 second. Each press of a button, advances each dial (depending on the crown position and the button being pressed) by 1 second. Holding it in for 2 seconds, the hand runs continuously like a second hand. The manual is brief on reseting zero. I had the same problem and was getting a replacement watch, after just 2 days, really. When I accessed the FIXYA web-site and now DONE !!!

    THANKS! My chronograph is a TIMEX, but it works exactly the same way.

Unscrew the crown and try pressing the buttons...they'll adjust the hands. Note that there are two adjustment positions when you pull the crown out, so you'll have to figure out which one works.

SOURCE: Resetting GMT hand

I have CL1180 and had the same problem, pulling the winder out to position 2 (fully out) and using the buttons resets the second and 10th second hands and putting the winder in position1 and using the buttons does the same for the minute and hour hands. However finding position1 was tricky, only seems to work on the way out from fully home and not on the way back from pos 2.

Hope that helps.

How do I set the alarm on model wau111a tag watch


  • Pull out the crown to the alarm setting position. The crown is located on the right side of the face of the watch. Pull the crown out until "AL", the alarm indicator, is shown on the watch. Depending upon the model of your Tag Heuer Aquaracer watch, you will either pull the crown out in the first or second position.
  • Select the hours and minuets for the alarm. Once your watch is in the alarm setting position, press the bottom right button on your watch. This will enable you to select the hours and minuets that you want to set the alarm for.
  • Set your alarm. To begin setting your alarm turn the crown clockwise until the desired hour or minutes are displayed on your Tag Heuer Aquaracer watch. If you happen to accidentally pass the alarm time, turn the crown counter-clockwise the get back to the desired alarm time.
  • Save your alarm. When you are ready to save your alarm, simply push in the crown. Once your alarm sounds, to silence it press any button on your Tag Heuer Aquaracer watch.

    How to reset the chrono function of a Tag Heuer Aquaracer Calibre S CAF7113.FT8010 after a battery change


    Pull the crown out to the first position, and then you may find that successive pushes of the upper pushbutton will move one of the chrono hands by one division, and the lower pushbutton will move a different chrono hand. Similarly if you pull the crown out to the second position, the pushbuttons will control the other chrono hands. In this way you can set each of the chrono hands to their zero positions. Hope this works..

    Date change on my Tag Aquaracer Calibre S


    Do as follows:1) At any time of the day pull the crown out and advance watch hands forward for EXACTLY 12 hours ( for example: if it's 6.35 on your watch, then after advancing hands it will be 6.35 again, just minute hand will be forwarded clockwise 12 full circles, while hour hand will be forwarded 1 full circle). Push the crown back in.
    2) Pull the crown out to the date setting position and change to the desired date. Pull the crown back in.
    Now your watch will be changing dates at midnight continuosly.
