Gucci 9300 Chrono Instruction Manual

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for any instructions for this watch to reset everything after a battery change.

It's some complex series of presses on the 3 pushers and 1 crown but I can't remember the sequence and I've lost the instruction sheet that I had.

Any help would be appreciated  :geek:

Thanks guys.

Yeah it doesn't seem to work using those instructions.

The movement is Swiss with 1 battery for the time and another battery for the Chrono functions.

I found a picture of the movement here: http://www.watchrepairtalk.com/topic/1112-gucci-9300/

I seem to recall having to press 2 buttons simulateously while the crown is out but I can't recall exactly.

I even sent an email to Ronda in Switzerland but got a fairly unhelpful reply..   but at least they did reply:

 

According your description we don’t have/had such movement in our sales program. But we know, that some of our clients added RONDA watches on their modules, which they have assembled to entire watches.

So in this case we know only the functions concerning the time indication. Please contact the watch brand (Gucci) for further instructions.

Unfortunately not.

The watch has 3 pushers and 1 crown and as near as I can tell, the crown only has 2 positions.

It has been many years since I had a battery in this watch but I seem to recall needing to press some obscure combination of the pushers after changing the battery.

Welcome to the forum Watchmad. I suspect this may have a Seiko 7a28 movement in it, so try setting it using these instructions.

George.

I did spot this (incorrect) post of yours earlier and I had to chuckle to myself. :biggrin:

It's an easy mistake to make with these 7Axx clones, of which the Gucci quartz chono's are just one. There are other bone fide brands of 7A28, the most obvious being Yema, which use a (re-branded) Shimauchi Ltd V905 movement. The easy way to tell a 7Axx clone from the 'real deal' (without sight of the movement) is to check the increments on the LH minute counting sub-dial. Usually they'll go up to 60, whereas a pukka 7Axx only counts to 30 minutes. Plus they're usually 'Swiss Made'. <_<

    • As you are looking for a solution, keep in mind that you can order (or salvage from old crowns) male split stems with different length shoulders - the cylindrical section between the threads and the split coupling. The shortest are less than a millimeter, which gives you another variable to exploit since that would seem to be shorter than what you have in the picture. In their repair kit Benrus sold male split stems in Tap 8 or 10, with shoulders from 0.33-0.085 inches.
    • Nicely done. Looks good. Be cheaper than a bought one. More satisfying as well.
    • Yes well the 6497 spec sheet did mention epilam but I don’t have either the product or the bottle for it.   
    • Hello from Nashville TN!!! I’m new to the watch repair world, but I’m nerdy and loving it! I’m helping a friend out and repairing his old Benrus Square Rigger. Basically the crown was damaged (the internal pipe was bent badly…I tried to straighten it and it broke.) Anyways, I’ve learned a lot about this watch but I need some help  it’s a split stem system and I was able to source the correct stem. What I know so far. It’s a split stem, male side screws into the crown. 5mm crown. Tap 9. 2mm tube on the case. I bought a random lot of vintage crowns and was able to make one of them work. It’s the crown on the left side in the pic. The problem is, I need a gold one! I need to find a crown with a recessed “pipe.” The gold one on the right, that has a flush pipe will not work…regardless of how much you trim the stem. It’s has to be recessed like the steel one. I’m just not sure how to search for that!
    • Yes, it's a problem if you're not familiar with them as a 3rd tier brand with 90% of the cases being monoblock, especially if you get one of their chromed cases with faux joints like you ran across. The Benrus and Belforte watches (1st and 2nd tier) more often than not had some opening instructions stamped on the front loading case.  It is easier to tell when you get one of the Sovereign anodized aluminum one-piece cases, especially in Hot Wheels purple!
