Is this a lost cause?

Recommended Posts

It's a Pulsar 7T62, which appeals in a quirky kind of way. Problem is, the hour and minute hands are out of alignment, the alarm hands don't sync with the main hands as they should and the date wheel, while it turns with the crown, doesn't move over after midnight. Can it be saved?

I'd suspect that the hands became misaligned when the battery was last changed.  This is quite common on analogue quartz chronographs.  The manual details a procedure to re-align the hands: https://www.manualslib.com/manual/1049984/Pulsar-7t62.html#manual

In the manual I can only see a process to align the stopwatch hands, but they aren't the problem. It's the main hour and minute hands. The picture below is set at 12 o'clock and the hour hand is not under the minute hand. Also, I set the date on the 18th and this photo was taken on the 20th, but the date hasn't changed.

not sure if u seen or it will work but good luck 

Thanks, but that's the same as the manual. It resets the stopwatch hands (red). My problem is with the minute and hour hands (white).

Yes, seems unlikely. Especially as most of it, except the case, seems to be plastic.
