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

This watch hasĀ anolog hands on a plain black face. I was always fine with that until it stopped. I had the batteries (2) changed and discovered that there also is a digital display of the minutes. Apparently, one of the batteries was already dead when I received this watch.

After both batteries were replacesĀ it works great BUT I can't set the digital display of the minutes to the correct time. Any ideas?

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.

How to change battery -can't open case on Nouveau quartz men's watch


Take it to K-Mart jewelry dept. and ask them to take the back off to determine the battery you need. They'll do it and only charge you for the battery.

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.

How do I set my pod 535 watch after I have changed the batteries


Just tried this procedure to replace a watch battery in a POD 535 and did not work...my version of the watch might be different, all I am saying is it did not work with my watch.
The procedure that worked with my watch
When you have replaced the battery reset the watch by placing a small screw driver across the two recessed contact next to the lower battery clip. The digital display will reset and you will see four zero's flashing...if not press the winder button once, or reset the watch again. This process is to get all the hands at twelve O clock position...press and hold the top right hand button and the hands will start revolving...you can let go of the button once the hand are moving. Pressing the top button again will stop the hands and a short press will move the hands in small increments. Once the hands get close to 12 press then press the button once and then press the same button in short pulses to align all the hands on the 12 position. Wait a short time and the watch will find the time signal and both the digital display and hands will be aligned and showing the correct time.

I have a big tic fossil watch. The flashing second is working properly, but the hand doesnt. It looks like slowing down. How can I fix this problem. Thank you


your watch has two batteries inside, the small battery is the one that had to be replaced. it is under the big battery, the small battery makes the minute and hour hand move while the big battery makes the seconds flashing. i hope that i had been helped you.

The watch shows time in digital plus has hands on it like a regular watch the digital shows one time and the hands show another


Hi jessestaton,

All you would have to do is change the time from either the digital mode or the anolog hands , you can choose one which is incorrect and try to change it.

Now to change the analog clock's settings , you would have a button which you can manually rotate and set the time, this is how you would be able to recognise that it's for the anolog time modification.

If you need to change the digital time , all you have to do is find out buttons that are present on the watch , and then try to change the time.

Note:- If you find a circled knob , remember that could only be for anolog time change as digital time is never changed using such knobs or screws , but have seperate button for that function.

In case you have any queries, feel free to get back.

Hope this helps ..:)

I have a BIG TIC JR-8529. Is this model obsolete? The watch was not working properly (stopping/slowing down), so I replaced the battery. It seems fine now, but still no digital display in the background...


Since Fossil do not list their instructions under model numbers it is difficult to be sure that you rmodel still exists but if you go to their web site for instructions http://www.fossil.co.uk/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ContentView?langId=10&storeId=32553&catalogId=20002&page=instructions

(click on this link to go there) and you will see some instructions for various big tic watches and you can select the one that suits yours.

The only one that I could find that had a single button above the winder used it to cahnge the colour. Pressing this button for 2 seconds will change the colour to "alternating" and the same again will produce a fixed colour. Perhaps this will make the change of display you need.

Often with watches, you need to use a pair of tweezers to short the battery case to the chassis ((often marked "ac"). This seems to be a re-set function, although I have never found an explanation for the need to do this.

If all else fails, look up their contact details and speak to them about your problem.
