The National Maritime Museum has your answer: "The first leap year in the modern sense was 1752, when 11 days were 'lost' from the month September with the adoption of the Gregorian calendar by Britain and her colonies. After 1752 we adopted the system still in use today where an additional day is inserted in February in years wholly divisible by 4, other than years ending in 00 with the exception of those divisible by 400 which are still leap years (like 2000). This is certainly not the first use of leap years, the Julian calendar we used before 1752 had a simpler system of leap years, and remember, no calendar is universal."
All watches open from the back. Closely inspect the back cover and find the depression in the edge that a thin knife edge can pry open the cover. Search carefully and pry open but do not force. Most watches are very tightly sealed to prevent moisture from entering, however, if you can pry open at some point along the back cap, look for a thin rubber gasket. If there is not a gasket no worries. Use a C-clamp or hand-vise to clamp the back cover tightly. Be sure to allow the stem slot, adequate clearance so you don't damage it. Look for a "dip" in the case back and locate stem. Hold in place with tape while you squeeze the back into place using the c clamp or vise slowly.
It should slide into/under a slot from the side, and be held in place by tension (not familiar with the exact model, so bear with me...). Some covers are held in place with a screw; you'll know this is the case if one end has a hole in it. Eyeglass screw kits are a good source for tiny screws. Hope this helps!
It appears that the watch was malfunctioning which I thought was due to a change of battery being required.
(It was running slow and giving the wrong time - so my mother told me)
I subsequently found instructions for the watch on an internet site, changed the battery and the watch is still failing to set to the U.K. time zone therefore, I deduce that it is a failure in the watch rather than the need for a new battery or ranything I have or have not done.
No, there isn't any buttons you are missing.
My first advie is to test battery for full power. If it is, then clean all contacts in battery hatch.
If it still do not work, the gear train can be jammed or the integrated circuit faulty and repairs can be undertaken by skilled watchmaker only.
lendoris I cannot find your exact watch. But if you go to www.fossil.com on the opening page click watches, at the bottom of the new page click on Customer care, on new page click on Watch instructions, its under Product information. types of watches can be viewed, choose one like yours and follow instructions
Take a small flathead screwdriver, or maybe a metal nail file and pry up the catch.DO NOT pry up by placing the tool on the rod used for hooking the clasp side to this side. Just stick in the metal piece that is folded over ( it should have a little notch in it) and pry it up. If you still don't understand I will be glad to send you a picture later on today. PLEASE let me know either way!!
