The second counter A 3 1 P1–2–3 8 2 B In the centre of the dial, apart from the hour and minute hand, is another hand called the second counter. This counter indicates the number of seconds in the measuring period. The number of seconds is read on the outer main dial indicated through the mid-line index with a total of 60 divisions. 1 round for the second counter = 1 minute. The minute counter User instructions Setting the time 1. Adjust the watch crown, situated on the side of the case at the 3 o’clock mark, out from Operating Position 1 (P1) to Set Position 3 (P3) where the crown is fully extended at the second adjustment click. You will notice the second hand stops ticking. 2. Turn the crown clockwise to the desired time. DO NOT turn the crown anti-clockwise. 3. When the time is set, push the crown back to the Operating Position; the second hand will resume. Setting the date 1. Adjust the watch crown out from Operating Position 1 (P1) to Set Position 2 (P2) where the crown is half extended at the first adjustment click. 2. In Set Position 2 (P2) the watch will continue ticking during adjustment. Turn the crown clockwise until the correct date is displayed. 3. When the date is set, push the crown back to the Operating Position. Please note: The date should be set before 12 noon so that the calendar indicator changes in sync at twelve midnight and not twelve noon. Please note: Whilst the crown is in either Set Position 1 or 2 the watch is not moisture resistant. Chronograph operation This chronograph watch features traditional watch functions: hours and minutes, jumping second hand right sub dial (1) and date indicator (2), plus a stopwatch measuring minutes and seconds. The left sub dial (3) shows the number of minutes in the measuring period. Each time the second counter completes one rotation, the counter hand moves one step forward equal to 1 minute. This sub dial uses a line index with a total of 30 divisions. 1 round for the minute counter = 1/2 hour. Function: chronograph All the functions of the chronograph are controlled through the two push buttons: (A) and (B). Push button (A) has two functions: (START) and (STOP). Push button (B) also has two functions: (SPLIT) and (RESET). When you need to measure a specific event, push button (A) once. You will see the second counter hand in the centre moving forward. When the timed event is over, you must push button (A) again. The chronograph hands stop and you can read the result. Function: reset After you have read the time, the chronograph hands must be returned to the default position. Push button (B), the hands will now return to position 0 also know as zero position. The chronograph is now ready to time another event. Function: split The movement has another important function called (SPLIT), used for timing intermediate times during an event. Start the timer by pressing button (A). When you reach the instant you wish to read an intermediate time (without stopping the chronograph and only ‘freezing’ the time on the dial) push button (B). The second counter hand stops moving. You can now read the (SPLIT) time result whilst the chronograph movement continues to record the event. When you have finished reading the (SPLIT) time, push button (B). You will notice now that the hands move at a faster rate for a short while until they have caught up with the current timed event. Once this has happened, they will continue to move as normal. You may repeat the (SPLIT) function more than once in one timed event. When the timed event has ended, press button (A) as normal to read the total timed result, then return the chronograph hands to the zero position by pressing button (B). Function: tachymeter The chronograph function of this watch includes a tachymeter scale. The tachymeter can be used to convert elapsed time in seconds per unit to units per hour in order to calculate speed, distance or units per hour over a maximum duration of 60 seconds. Start the timer by pressing button (A). When you reach the instant you wish to read a value from the tachymeter (i.e. 1km travelled or 1 unit produced), push button (A) again to stop the timer. The value is read off the tachymeter between the central seconds hand and the corresponding scale. For example: 20 seconds timed corresponds to 180 units on the tachymeter scale (i.e. 180km/h or 180 units produced per hour). Once the value has been read, return the chronograph hands to the zero position by pressing button (B). Setting the hands of the chronograph After a battery change or if the function is affected by a severe knock or exposure to a strong magnetic field, the hands of the chronograph should be reset to zero position. Resetting the second counter hand and minute counter hand Adjust the crown to Set Position 3 (P3). Push and hold both chronograph buttons (A) and (B) for at least 2 seconds. After which the seconds counter hand will perform 1 complete rotation. The chronograph hands are now in resetting mode. By means of short, successive pushes on chronograph button (A), turn the second counter hand back to zero. Push chronograph button (B) to select the next chronograph hand. Pushing chronograph button (A) will now reset the next counter hand. By means of short, successive pushes on chronograph button (A), turn the next chronograph hand back to zero. Once all chronograph hands are reset to zero position, push the crown back to Operating Position 1 (P1). Please note: DO NOT push the crown back to Operating Position 1 (P1) until all chronograph hands have been returned to zero position. Please note: DO NOT keep the crown in Position 2 (P2) for more than 20 minutes. Watch care Your Uniform Wares watch requires a certain amount of care. The following guidelines will enable you to ensure its reliability and protect its appearance over time. Cleaning Please use a clean, lint-free cloth with warm water or, if required, a mild detergent diluted in water to remove any dirt from the case. To clean the lens use a clean chamois cloth. Avoid submerging the watch case in water. Battery Your watch’s power source is a Swiss-made Renata cell which has an estimated lifespan of 54 months. The life of the battery will depend upon the frequency with which you use the chronograph functions. When your battery requires replacing, please refer to the Uniform Wares website www.uniformwares.com/service for information on battery replacement. Water resistance This watch is designed to withstand everyday use and has a 5ATM water resistance rating. Exposure to high humidity and light rain showers is acceptable. However, you should avoid wearing the watch whilst showering, swimming, diving or during any other activity where it may be subjected to abnormal water pressures or environments where abnormal heat and moisture are present (e.g. saunas or hot Tubs). This combination may have a negative effect on the seals and gaskets of the watch. Condensation If your watch experiences a sudden change in temperature or pressure, a slight condensation may appear under the sapphire glass. This mist should disappear by itself and will not affect the functioning of your watch. If the condensation persists, please contact www.uniformwares.com/service.
