Once you have set the date, push the dial back in to secure it.
- Using the stopwatch function of the chronograph watch. There should be three small circular designs located on the face of your watch. If there is no visible stopwatch on the side of the face of the watch, these small designs should have show the seconds elapse with moving hands on them.

If your chronograph watch has stopwatch buttons provided, you can find them located above and below the center adjustment dial. To start and stop timing, press the top button, and when you need to reset the stopwatch, press the bottom button.
