Some 70s quartz watches used quite a different system where you push the crown in, hold for a while (perhaps 5-10 sec) then release it and push and hold it back in again immediately. At this point, the ends should set off advancing at many time their normal rate so you can alter the time.
Complex, I know.

SETTING DATE&TIME


i cant get a manual for this but watches have standard mechanical function so maybe this will do.
the center crown of the watch right side of the picture, loosen the crown. Be careful, some crown have a screw function so if your bulova has this don't force to pull it to prevent damage. if you have loosen the crown, check if can be turn it, if yes pull gently the crown, first pull date adjust,second pull time adjust.
This is the proper way to adjust you day and time.
say you want to adjust your watch to (date)10th (time)10:15am
adjust your date to 9th, then move your watch hands clockwise until the date change at 12oclock this is the evening time (PM) continue moving your watch hands until you reach 10:15am.
if your crown is a screw time remember to turn it close tightly for waterproofing.

I'm tryng to set the date without changing the day and time. I've tried to just pull the pin out half way but its not working. How do I do this? My watch has three dials on the face - 1)date, 2) day and 3)...


mcdevito75 here, It takes practice, the crown does have 2 positions, slip a fingernail just under the crown and lift to it"s first position this will allow you to change the DATE (number) once you get the correct Date, push tje crown back in, NOW! pull the crown out to set the DAY itself and the time. On some watches the crowns first position allows both the day and date to be changed by turning the crown in it"s first position clock wise and counter clock wise.

How do i set time back and have watch work again


This model has a pull out crown (the middle "button") on the side of your watch. Simply pull the crown out and turn to set the time. If your watch is not working after this then it likely needs a battery change.

How to set time, date, and alarm


there should be a manuel online that is downloadable from Bulova. This is the best way to find out how to set it short of taking it to a jeweler.
Generally, with the crown pulled out in different positions the push buttons will change the position of your subdial hands.

I cant adjust the minite hand backwards if the watch is gaining


Unfortunately your watch do not have reverse action, so, you have to go all the way forwards till you reach designated time again.
One more way how to set the right time is to disconnect the battery and wait till the real time reaches the hands of your watch, then put battery back and set again. If watch has a STOP function (crown pulled out), then you don't have to disconnect the battery- just pull out crown and wait.
By the way: pushing the button in accelerates minute hand constantly, but if you'll push the button rapidly, it will move mimnute hand bit by bit. Use this feature to set desired time more precisely.
Do not forget to rate, please.
