The hands are not setting themselves.

Just got new battery while in Edinburgh, but moved to Skye, and the hands are not setting themselves.
Am I now out of range, and if so, what can I do?

The controlling radio signal for the National Physical Laboratory's clock is transmitted on the MSF 60kHz signal via the transmitter at Rugby, operated by British Telecom International. This should have a range of some 1,500 km or 937.5 miles. All of the British Isles are of course within this radius.
The National Physical Laboratory's role as keeper of the national time standards is to ensure that the UK time-scale agrees with Co-ordinated Universal Time (UTC) to the highest levels of accuracy and to make that time available across the UK. As an example, the MSF (MSF being the three-letter call sign to identify the source of the signal) radio broadcast provides the time signal for, electronic share trading, the clocks at most railway stations and for BT's speaking clock.

I would take it into a jeweler and they will put a new battery in it for $4. If that fixes it all well and good, if not it cost you 4 bucks to prove it needs to go back under warranty.

The date and time are changing by themselves


I had the problem with locking on chrono function. Then I decide to replace battery, after replacement watches become crazy, hands were moving all the time, it was impossible to stop it. I remove the battery and leave watches on the table for 5-6 days, then install the battery again. No problem any more, all functions are available. May be you have the same kind of problem. Good luck!

When I pull out the crown, I can move the hands but the second hand does not stop. How do I get the second hand to stop so that I can set the time to a time signal?


Most of the watches in their range have instructions on the details page.

I suggest you go to "http://www.bulova.com/", choose your area, click on one of the pictures to move onto the next page, then do a search on their range of watches.

When you find yours, click on its' picture and details of the watch will appear. You will find instructions there.

I have a police chronograph watch about a year old if that and the chronograph dials have reset themselves at random points does anyone know why and if so is there a fix? many thanks david


hi,
all you need to do is pull the centre bezel out (to where you adjust the time) and by pressing the top button the chronograph needle will move round. Once it is the correct place simply push the centre bezel back in.

Hope this helps.
