Watch Chronograph:
The start/stop pusher located at two starts and stops the countdown. The reset pusher located at four has three functions: programming, synchronising and setting the countdown.

With one hand, the user can rapidly program the countdown. Likewise, he can start, stop, set or synchronize it, while it is in progress, to the official countdown with a simple press of a pusher. To time the start of a regatta, press the start/stop pusher to start the countdown. At the end of the countdown, the minute hand stops by itself at 0. The seconds hand continues to turn. If necessary, to synchronize the countdown, at the time of the official signal, sound or visual: press the reset pusher briefly and firmly. The minute countdown hand repositions itself to the nearest minute, while the seconds countdown hand returns to 0. When the reset pusher is released, the minute countdown hand and the seconds countdown hand are automatically activated. To stop the countdown, press the start/stop pusher. To set the countdown, ensure that the countdown is stopped. Press the reset pusher. The minute countdown hand returns to the minute programmed at the last setting and the seconds countdown hand returns to 0. The countdown is ready to be started. To program the countdown, first, ensure that the countdown is stopped. Turn the bezel 90 counterclockwise. The inscription Yacht-Master II should be aligned with the winding crown. This locks the start/stop pusher. Press the reset pusher. A click is heard. The pusher remains depressed. The winding crown is then unscrewed to position 1, without pulling on the stem. (The same as for manual winding). The hand is positioned at the desired minute by turning the winding crown in the winding direction. The minute countdown hand moves from 0 to 10 minutes by increments of one minute. At 10 minutes, if the user continues to turn the crown, the hand returns to 0. Return the bezel to its initial position by rotating it 90 clockwise. A click is heard. This returns the reset pusher to its initial position and unlocks the start/stop pusher. Push and screw down the winding crown. The countdown is ready to be activated according to the time programmed.
