Digital watches all work from a memory chip on the movement. The most common problem is the memory is filled or corrupted when you cannot seem to re-set them. In most styles, pressing and holding all the set buttons in at the same time for three or four seconds can fix this error. The dial will clear and the time and alarms must then be reset. If not you may need to have a watch technician use the AC button inside the case on the movement. He will need to use a metal tweezers and touch the + side of the battery to the AC contact point on the movement.

How do i set the background minutes?


I finally got mine adjusted by pressing the top right button (time) and the "pin" button (bottom left) at the same time. The numbers should start flashing then you can let go of the "pin" button and adjust the time. Hope that helps. Date button works the same way.

Need owners manual for fossil Big Tic Blue JR 8624


Inside the case back on my JR-7855 is a label with the steps to take to change the batteries. The sticker says to short the pad marked "S1" with the pad marked "+". Keep doing it quickly, then check the watch facelb_icon1.png. You got it right when the seconds start to change on the face.

Here is a view at the inside of the watch. The two points you are looking for are highlighted in red.

My me1020 came without instructions and i do not know how to set the date, min nor theday please help


Actually there is no instruction manual for ME1020 available on Fossil website except for how to replace the battery. When you try to match ME1020 model with the available diagrams, there is no match (4 eyes). To set the time, pull the crown out to the second position. Now set the min/hour hands. Date hand is linked to it so keep rotating the crown till the date is set is set correctly. Now remaining is the day setting. Notice that the day changes every 24 hour mark on the 24 Hour sub-dial, so cross this mark to change the day. Go reverse & again cross the 24 hour mark to get the next day. Repeat this till you get the correct day setting. Now your day is also set along with date & time!

Changing the date on a fossil watch- how do you do it?


Which Fossil do you own?

Analog Date Watch:
Date Setting
  1. Pull the crown out to position 2.
  2. Turn the crown either clockwise or counter-clockwise and set the date for the previous day. The direction that moves the date varies on different watch models.

Analog Automatic:
Time and Date Setting

  1. Pull crown out to position 2 and rotate clockwise to set time.
  2. Pull crown out to position 3; date will advance automatically. To set to required date, continue to rotate crown between positions 2 and 3.
  3. Push crown back to position 1.
Analog Digital:
Time and Calendar Setting

  1. Press and hold pusher A for 2 seconds to enter setting mode. Year will begin flashing.
  2. Press pusher A to select year, month, date, hour, minute, second, and then exit setting mode.
  3. Press pusher B to adjust digit.
  4. Press and hold pusher B to adjust digit automatically.
  5. If no pushers are operated for 30 seconds, setting will be returned to Normal Time Display.





These are the three most common Fossils. If yours isn't here please let me know which model you have and I'll get you the instructions.
Hope this helps.
