    Thanks for trying but number one I got the name on the watch wrong, it is a Marine Star and it is not a digital it is an analog. There are four buttons around the watch, There are three dials on the face, month, one with the numbers 6,12,18,24 and the last has TME, TMR and other words on it. Depressing the bottom right button makes the hands move but they don't stop when I want them too, no idea what the other three buttons do..

    Went to the marine star address and unfortunately it took me right to the Bulova home page which told me they couldn't find this watch. I'm going to try call their 1-800 number in hopes that someone there can help me.

Look at the face of the watch. It should read in very small print which button operates the mode button. Pressing it should change or flash the time, while it flashes, press the button that corresponds with the Start/Stop button to change the hour, press the button marking reset should go to the minutes and so on, when finished press the mode button again.

    OK. Go to www.marinestar.com. There you will find a link and photos of some watches. See if one or close to one looks like the one you have. There you can scroll down to find the watch you have and download the instructions. There is also a small section on the right side to put in the serial number located under the 6 to find your particular watch to download the instructions. Please let me know how you make out with it. Good luck!

    Also on that website, click on the link for Service Center, then under that click on the download for instructions.

Star Wars rebels led watch how to set time and date


Hi,I had the same problem. Look on the side of the watch on the right, in between the two pressable buttons. There is a small black button, size of a Byro tip. Press that in for 5 secs then the date display will start to flash. Set with the lower big button then press the small button again to cycle through month, day, hour, minute.

Phew. Takes a bit of spotting.

Rado dia star jubile womens watch stops working when i take it off......put it on and it starts again


I am not familiar with this watch but if it is a mechanical escapement (which ticks), then it could be that the balance wheel has become dislodge.

Has the watch been dropped lately? If it has, then a trip to a watch repairer is needed.

I can't set my watch.The book that came with it doesn't match my watch.Thanks


I have looked at thier web site and can't find your model listed.

I suggest you go to their web site and find your nearest service center and bend their ears about poor service. T

hey should be able to give you a set of instructions that suit your model, after all, they must have issued such instructions at some time and they should be able to dig them out for you

Go to http://www.bulova.com/brands/bulova/product.aspx?origin=collection&sku=96B113&brand=bulova and look at the list of Marine star watches but not the model you have.

I suggest you look through the models the show and select the one that looks similar to yours and click on the watch to get details, which should include operating instructions.

How to set time on a bulova marine star 96C30


For some reason you cannot find the manuals on the Bulova web site any longer. But don't worry....
I have the manual for the Bulova Marine Star 96C30 Watch. This is easily fixable.
Below, I have typed the instruction on how to fix this issue as well as reset the time and calendar and a few extra tips in case you forgot....

Here is what it says to do if the hands don't match up with the display time (usually happens after you change the battery).
First, you must locate the buttons on the watch.
The "A" button is at the 2 o'clock position (upper right). The "B" button is at the 10 o'clock position (upper left) The "C" button is at the 8 o'clock position (lower left) The "M" (mode) button is at the 4 o'clock position (lower right), and is the only button you can pull out to set the times, calendar and programming.
To RESET the watch and do the ZERO POSITIONING after changing a battery or having a display error, do the following.
RESET 1. Pull the "M" button out to the setting position. 2. hold down the "A", "B", and "C" buttons simultaneously for 3 seconds, then release them. All digit segments will turn on and display completely.
ZERO POSITIONING 1. Press the "B" button and all the segments in the digital time will reset to zero, with "UTC" showing in the main digital window. 2. Zero the "UTC" minute and hour hand (located in 12 o'clock sub-dial) to the 24 o'clock maker (straight up). Button "A" will move the hands clockwise, and button "C" will move the hands counter clockwise. 3. Press button "B" - "HR" shows in the main digital window. Adjust the main (large) hour hand to the 12 o'clock (midnight) position using "A" and "C" buttons. At the same time, observe the synchronized 24 hour hand (small dial to the left of the main dial), to insure that it also moves to point to "24". 4. Press button "B". "MIN" shows in the display window. Adjust the large minute hand to also point to the 12 using the "A" and "C" buttons. 5. Push the "M" (mode) button back in to its normal position. The watch beeps and at the same time the hands jump slightly. ALL RESET and ZERO POSITIONING are now complete. 6. Reset the time, calendar and other modes.
To set the time. Note that changing the time in any of the cities will automatically update the time for all the cities. 1. Press the "M" button to move the mode hand to (TME) 2. Press either the "A" or "C" button to move to the desired city. 3. Pull the "M" button out to the setting position. 4. Press the "A" button. SECONDS will blink. Set them with "C". 5. Press the "A" button again, and MINUTES will blink. Set them with the "C" button. 6. Press the "A" button again, and HOURS will blink. Set with the "C" button. 7. Press the "A" button again, and 12 or 24 hours tim format will appear. 8. Push in the "M" button to its normal position.
To set the calender 1. push the "M" button to move the mode hand to (CAL) 2. Set the city using the "A" or "C" buttons. 3. Pull out the "M" button to the "setting" position. The numbers of the "month" starts to blink. this is an "american" date system with the month first, day second, and year third. Use "C" button to adjust the month. 4. Push the "A" button. The date (day) will flash. Adjust with the "C" button. 5. Push the "A" button. The YEAR flashes. Adjust with the "C" button. 6. Push the "M" button back in. The calender is simultaneously adjusted for all cities.
Couple of other "tips".
Switching the time on the digital display with the time shown on the hands: 1. Press the "M" button until the mode hand is in (TME) or (CAL) mode. 2. Pressing the "A" and "C" button together. The time will switch the between the main hands (analog) and the digital display.
Temporary Hand Retraction Pressing and holding the "B" button will move the hands out of the way of the display. Repressing the "B" button will put the hands back at the correct time.
hope this helps.
