Weird - All I would try personally is, as a last resort: holding every button down in turn at the same time you're inserting the battery and re-checking operation.

It's possible you could have zapped it with ESD , but unlikely in my view.

I wonde if some sand or grit has gotten between the pushers and the electronic switches holding at least one of them in and permanetly on. The fix would involve removing the movement.

Is the chrono expensive or sentiment? Another good reason to buy a new watch. :p

bit of a comedian are we ???? i think not.
No, not trying stand-up or sit-down comedy. I take it that you really are not looking for a way to fix your watch but only to post poorly thought out responses. Yes a movement can be removed without much difficulty or skill involved if one is careful. It can also be done by a watch repairman.
