As per title, what happens? Does it damage the movement?

Reason I ask is because I pressed the reset button on my El Primero , thinking it was the start/stop button. Now the button that starts/stops the chronograph feels stiffer than normal when I push i, I.e it takes slightly more force to push it.

Watch is running fine and everything else seems good. I'm just afraid I might have broken it or bent something in the movement!

Im sure its no big deal, but what do you guys think? Would something like this be covered under warranty if i did press it and it broke in the future?

On a flyback, it does no damage at all. On a normal chronograph, there will be stiff resistance; if you force it (and manage to reset), you break the mechanism. There is the possibility of something having got bent slightly in the start/stop mechanism but if it still operates, I'd wait until the next service when they will replace worn parts (as long as it's at Zenith!).
