How to Reset the VD53B Chrono Hand to Zero?

There are many Invicta watches with the caliber VD53, so here are some handy instructions provided by Invicta…

Vd53 Chronograph Reset Instructions

If these don’t work, it’s likely that your watch does not have the VD53, so try these instructions to reset your chronograph hand.

About SII from Wikipedia:

Seiko Holdings Corporation (SEIKO) delegates a large portion of the manufacturing in its watch business to SII and EPSON. Most of watches manufactured by SII are sold through the Seiko Watch Corporation, a subsidiary of Seiko Holdings Corporation. In recent years Seiko Instruments has tried to establish its own marketing channel and brands – Sizukuishi Watch, appetime, J.SPRINGS, ISSEY MIYAKE, tsumori chisato, ALESSI, cacharel, etc.

On January 26, 2009, Seiko Instruments and Seiko Holdings announced that the two companies will be merged on October 1, 2009 through a share swap. Seiko Instruments became a wholly owned subsidiary of Seiko Holdings on October 1, 2009.

Someone else may want to add their input here, but I do not believe it is possible to adjust the speed of this movement. Is it running fast or slow?

A bit slow, maybe the battery, maybe just a bit slow, the reason I might want to adjust it. So if anyone knows a way please let us know.

Just as it is with mechanical movements, accuracy can differ between quartz movements even if they are identical due to the quartz crystal themselves having slight differences. Temperature can also affect the oscillation of quartz crystals.

I’ve got an Invicta 10701 watch with this movement. Does anyone know the hand sizes for the subdials? I know that the diameter is .20 but I’m not sure of the length of the hands. Thanks!

Wouldn’t it depend on the dial design and not the movement? You might have to do your best to measure it yourself. Doubtful this info will be available anywhere.

I have a Triumph Motorcycles model 3019 watch which uses the VD53B movement. I wore it a lot – too much judging by the scratches! – until the stem broke flush with the crown. Can you recommend a source for replacement parts please?

The movement is like $30 but you can find cheap watches with this movement for that price. Just buy an entire new movement or new watch.

The Fossil CH2600 Decker uses the VD53B movement as well. It easily meets the accuracy spec of the movement, which is +/- 20 seconds per month.

I have SEMPRE PO6885 PLU91743 that i got for around 30e or so in Germany in supermarket new. Watch has incredible sunburst dale and it works for me well for now 5 years. I had 3 battery changes in mid time. It takes time to reset the cronograph because chrono seconds need to unwind every second that it timed to come back to starting 12.

I’ve been told it’s a Seiko S11 mechanism in it and I’d like to confirm.

There is no such thing as a Seiko S11, it’s SII (Sii) for Seiko Instruments Inc. That is the movement brand but not the caliber number. It’s possible it has a movement made by Seiko, but that still won’t tell you enough. The best way is to open it up and see for yourself.
