Question about Watches

1 Answer

I got a battery replaced in my fossil watch but the employee doesn't know how to reset the digital minutes to match the correct time.

My watch was purchased in Las Vegas in 1999 and it is a Fossil JR7857 model. I obviously haven't worn it in many years for it needed a new band and I just never took the time to have it fixed, I just wore a different one. Now that I went and had a new band and batteries replaced she didn't know how to set the digital minutes in the background. Please let me know what need so be done so I can take it back to the jewelry store to have it set. Thank you, Lisa.

You may have to take your watch to a different jewelry store to have it set.

SOURCE: Purchase a link for a fossil link type watchband.don't have link

My experience with Fossil has been poor customer service support for the items they sell. I could even get a flat normal crystal replaced. You can call and wait for customer service. You can also buy another one of the same model on Ebay and use the proper tools to cannibalize the links from another of the same model. You will need pin pusher tools to remove the links and replace them. Do a Google search on watch link removal to learn how this is done.

SOURCE: remove links from fossil metal band

You may have arrows inside bracelet.Arrows are pointing the way the pins must come out.
First you have to find out what sort of pins or even screws are used to keep links together.
Examine both bracelet sides and find the side where pin ends have a groove.
Start with a tiny screwdriver and start to unscrew one of the screws. If it turns, but doesn't come out, that means you have a pins instead.
For removing pins the best would be pin removing tool (approx.5GBP on ebay), but it's possible to do the job without it.
Take a hardened steel needle and blunt the sharp end to the approx. size of pin end diameter using any sharpening stone or sandpaper. Get an old towel and fold it to make a soft base for work (like small cusion). As you don't have a special bracelet holder you will need a pair of helping hands to hold the bracelet steady upright. You will need small hammer and pair of flat nose pliers as well.
NOTE: The pins MUST be driven split end out first, not vice versa. Make sure that the grooved pin ends are facing towel, not the needle and hammer!!!
Now place the watch on the folded towel, take that needle and smallest hammer you have and start driving the pin out using light blows. Do Not hit hard, as you will brake the needle, scratch your watch or even injure yourself. Watchmakers are using 45 gram hammer, so, calculate your strength of blows.
After a few blows check if the split end is coming out and when you see that the end is long enough to grab it with pliers, pull the pin out with pliers. When pulling, do NOT turn pliers, as pins tend to brake when twisted. Use firm grip and your strength to pull the pin without twisting.
After shortening the bracelet,make sure that the pins go back EXACTLY the same way as they came out- the blunt end first in the hole and the split (grooved) end last. Before doing that check remaining pins in bracelet to make sure that you put them back from the right side of bracelet.
It is recommended to use plastic hammer to drive pins back in or you will scratch or damage bracelet. If plastic hammer is not available use an old toothbrush handle (or some plastic item) as an absorber. Simply put pin into the hole as deep as you can with your fingers, put the toothbrush handle on split pin end and hit handle, not the pin.
Make sure that pin ends are flush with bracelet. If needed- hit few more times.
Job done!

SOURCE: We bought the Fossil Brown rectangle watch model

  • Change the battery. If your watch stops ticking, chances are the watch is not broken and the battery simply needs to be replaced. You can purchase a watch battery at your local department store or drugstore. Use the screwdriver to pry the back off the watch and place the new battery in the same place where the old one fit.
  • Step 2 If your watch is still not working, determine the problem. If you can hear the watch ticking but the hands are not moving, there may be a gear stuck inside. If only one of the hands does not move, the hand itself could be broken. Once you determine the problem, you can see whether it makes more sense to purchase a new watch or get the old one fixed.
  • Step 3 Check your watch warranty. If your Fossil watch came with a warranty that is not yet expired, Fossil will fix your watch if you send it to the company and pay for shipping and handling. See the "Resources" section below to fill out the Watch Repair Form provided by Fossil.com. If your watch strap is broken, however, Fossil will charge you a fee as broken straps are not covered in the warranty.
  • Step 4 Check a competing local watch repair store. There are watch repair stores located all over the United States that will repair a Fossil watch if your watch is no longer under warranty or if you do not want to pay the shipping and handling to send the watch to Fossil's watch repair department. Although the watch repair store may not have the exact strap you are looking for, it may offer a replacement strap that is similar to the one that originally came with your watch.
  • Step 5 Return the watch to the store where you bought it. If you purchased a Fossil watch that was broken when you purchased it or broke recently after you brought it home, you may be able to return the watch for a refund or store credit. Check with the store's policy before purchasing the watch if you are concerned about returns.

    Second hand and battery replacement on fossil watch


    Fossil watches have an 11 year warranty. Any jeweler can replace the battery. If that doesn't solve the problem and you registered the watch or still have the receipt call 1-800-TICTOC1 for repair.

    Battary size for fossil blue watch bq8775


    Thanks for contacting Fossil.
    The only way to know the battery size is to pull out the old one. It might also be in your manual. It might be on the outside of the watch.
    If battery is missing, then you will have to measure the cavity and match it against a battery chart.
    Best wishes.

    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!

    Need a new glass for my fossil watch fossil blue CH2435


    This is will take a jeweler or watchmaker to fit with a new crystal.
    1st take this watch to the point of purchase and see if they can assist you, sometimes they will surprise you and depending upon the age of the watch may replace.
    2nd beyond that usually only independant jewelers will work with fossils, almost all chains will not allow their employees to even change batteries in a Fossil (they are easy to break).

    Fossil Big Tic Watch - setting the correct time on the digital display


    The watch is scrolling through the seconds, and is not something that needs to be set. If there is a bottom it is only there to change the way the seconds are scrolling? There are many different types of these, but most are just standard seconds.

    If I remember correctly, these watches have two batteries.. one for the time and one for the animation.... you probably just need battery replaced.
