I've just bought this watch but i don't know what the red hand does ?
Somebody knows ?
There are 2 red hands. The big one is a chronograph hand. It times seconds when you operate the chronograph (stopwatch) function. The other tracks hours (I think - can't really see properly).
yes there are two big hands , a black and a red . The black acts normal but I don't know what the red is for
Ah, sorry, small picture and didn't spot that there were two big hands. I'm not that familiar with this complication, but believe it's to measure the split time, i.e. so you can keep the chrono running and measure intervals. The instruction manual for this calibre is this one I believe:
I can not see the The instruction manual ! link doesn't work ...Access denied !
do you have another link ? Much appreciated .
OK, sorry. Go here: https://secure.eta.ch/CSP/DefaultDesktop.aspx
Then select "Technical Documents".
Then enter "251.262" into the caliber search
Interesting. Why have independent reset of hour and minute subdial hands other than "Because we can."?
Thanks a lot for the manual , not easy to understand !
