just bought a sturmanski space pioneer quartz chrono vk64 3354851 , £40 inc postage , and im confused about its workings , as I understand it the top pusher , starts the second hand timer , but the watch is working while no other chronograph dials are moving , so in theory if the second hand is in the stationary position and the 2 small chrono dials are also not moving the watch still keeps time , I thought a quartz watch had to have one dial moving to show its working 

I think its a Seiko movement

Top pusher should start central seconds and left hand dial, it is also used to stop both hands. Bottom pusher returns hands to zero.

Right hand dial is a 24 hour dial and should be moving constantly along with hour/minutes hands.

Think it's supposed to be a Seiko VK-64 movement.

Where was it purchased from?

but why aren't any dials moving to show a seconds ticking action 

There is no constant seconds ticking action on this movement

bottom  pusher certainly is returning dial to 12 o clock position and top pusher starts 2nd hand , but top pusher dosent seem to be starting left hand chrono 

the left hand chrono seems to be moving though , so the left hand chrono might be moving every 60 secs 

the right hand chrono dosent seem to be doing much

Center seconds records when pushing top chrono button, left hand dial records chrono minutes, right hand dial is 24 hour indicator running constantly but hardly noticeable at a glance.

ok mate , as brum has said there is no running seconds hand - so when not using the chronograph (stopwatch) the only hands that will move are the hour and minute hands and the 24hr hand (on the right)

bottom button resets - then top button to start and stop the chronograph hands - the seconds and the minutes (on the left)

to see correct operation of chronograph minutes (on the left) wait at least one minute after pressing the start button

What is the right hand chrono on at the moment?

never had a sturmanskie , seemed ok for £40 delivered
right hand chrono is between 2 and 3 o clock position

Well it's set at 5:05 am then.
This is what it should be looking like. 5:05 pm
Different watch same movement.

£40.00 delivered seems a Good deal compared to retail price.

Nothing wrong with it I believe just understanding what it does and setting correctly, .

Hope this helped.

Hey everybody, it doesn't seem like it has a running seconds dial?

 

I wish I wish I wish the 24r dial was running seconds.
