Your watch has quartz movement and stopwatch adjustment by one step (one full second) only. That means you will not be able to adjust stopwatch hand by using pushers on your watch as each push of the pusher will advance stopwatch hand for the full second, not the fifth or the tenth of the second, and the hand will stay slightly off anyway.
This happenened because the IC (integrated circuit) in your watch miscalculated the teeth count on chronograph wheel and stopped one or two teeth past or under the zero point. It doesn't happen very often, but in your case it did and the only solution is to find your nearest watch repair shop and ask for resetting stopwatch hand to zero.
This procedure needs partial disassembling of the watch and quite a great skill as the stopwatch hand must be removed and then refitted with great accuracy. All this needs to be done by very specialized tools as well.
I think this is the only solution of your problem unless you can live with that and just leave it as it is.
Do not forget to rate, please.

Take your watch to a jeweler who will demonstrate how to open it, identify the battery type, and perhaps replace it for a reasonable sum.

It would depend on the movement inside. Many times the "cell" is identified on the case back. If you have a model name & # it will help.

I would advice that you take your wrist watch to a watch store or a jewelry store so you would be able to get the perfect and compartible bracelet for your watch.

Maybe a jeweler can try some trial-and-error to find something that will work.

Pull out the crown, push the chronograph start button. You will see that the hand moves one second. once it is back to zero push back the crown. Depending on your model you might need to pull out the crown with one click for the chronograph timers and another click for the second hand.
