Hi Maureen, The first thing i would have checked is the battery strap if there is one to make sure it is properly fitted over the battery. Other than that as long as the batteries were from a reputable jeweler, it seem as if you watch may need a movement cleaning and or repair it could possibly be the coil. Most of our watch cleanings run around $80.00 but we do all repairs by estimate. Thank you! Lisa

Step 1. When the second hand re a ches 12 o ’ clock (the zero or 60th second mark ) , pull the crown all the way to the “OUT ”position (you will hear two “ cl i ck s ” ) .All hands will stop.
 
Step 2. Turn the crown to move hands FORWARD (clockwise) until you see the date (for date only) or both day and date change.This establishes midnight, t h e b e ginning of the day.
 
Step 3. For A.M .time, continue to move hands forward until the minute hand is approxim a t e ly 5 minutes beyond the desired minute marker ;then ,gently turn b a ck to the same marke r. For P. M .time , follow the same procedure ,but first a dvance  the hands past 12 o’clock .
 
N O T E : The date will advance automatically at midnight, p rovided that A . M .a n d P. M .h ave been established (Steps 2 and 3).The watch calendar is pro grammed for a 31-day cycle.The  refore ,on the fi rst day of any month fo l l owing a month with fewer than 31 day s , the date must be advanced manually (see Step 5).
 
Step 4. When the time standard by which you are setting your wa t ch ( e.g.,telephone beep) re a ches the 60th second, push the crown all the way to the “ I N ”position . All hands will start instantly.
 
Step 5. Pull the crown to the “ I N T E R M E D I AT E ”position (one “ cl i ck ” ) . Your watch will continue to tell time. S l ow ly turn crown one way until the correct date a p p e a rs .Then for day/date models, s l ow ly turn crown the other way until the correct day appears .
 
N O T E : The day is printed in two successive positions on the day indicator: i n English and in Spanish on U. S .m o d e l s ; in English and in Fre n ch on Canadian mode l s It is possible to make use of either position. The display will automatically re m a i n in the language ch o s e n .
The date should never be ch a n ged manu a l ly between 9:00 P. M . and 3:00 A . M .a s this might affect the calendar mechanism and the accuracy of the date. ( Theme chanism will not be damaged if the crown is turned accidentally during this
time peri o d ,howeve r. )


Hope it helped U!

I believe you are just outside your warranty. Its time to see a watch maker/technician about repairing the watch. Often times slowing is as easy to fix as lubricating the movement and forcing the gear train through the use of a cyclonic device. This fix takes minutes and is very cost effective. If the slowing is due t circuit board issues or a more sever gear train problem then the movement will need to be overhauled. I suggest comparing this cost to the cost of a replacement movement.

SOURCE: I can't seem to remove

If you take a small scredriver (one that is used to repair eyeglasses) and run it gently around the rim of the back, you will feel a slight indentation where you can insert the screwdriver to open up the back. The battery is easily accesible but then it's tough to get the back back on!

It seems as though it needs some attention, i.e. serving might be needed.

If servicing proves to be unsuccessful in improving performance, then it should be sent to their service center (see Boluva.com).

How dose chronograph work? I have millennia 96b34 and it has stopped.


Chronograph is just a fancy way of saying electric clock. Like in an automobile. Most likely, in your watch, you just need to replace the battery. Take it to Walmart jewelry counter and they can care for it.

Bulova 96b34 watch is not working


Batteries do not last forever. They corrode contacts, loose power even while in storage. Go to a different shop and have the battery replaced.

My Quartz sports watch works, loses time, had three months, .


Sounds like battery is failing. Time to replace it! :-) Sears stores usually have a watch repair counter...or find a reputable watch repair business. (Even if the watch is new...its still possible the battery could be failing because you have no way of knowing when it was originally installed! They typically last about 2-3 years depending on age and condition of watch!)

Good luck!

The watch is a marine star purchased 6 months ago and two months ago began losing time


It's under warranty so send it back to Bulova. Or if you don't want to deal with Bulova you can pay a watchmaker to repair the watch.
