Question about Bulova Chronograph Marine Star #96B99 watch

Open Question

I have a Bulova 96B99 that the user manual has been long lost. How do I set the date (specifically the top right dial that I'm assuming is the year)? Thanks in advance.

SOURCE: Day, date and time for a Bulova TFX watch

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!

SOURCE: where can I buy a dial window for my bulova super seville

You can probably buy one at the jewlery store. Problem will be that you cant put it in unless you have the special tool to do it.

B.m.w. geneve 250 watch what are the four small dials for how to operate them denis


If it's the same watch I have, the four dials from right to left are day of week, hours left in the day, date 1-31, and possibly a chronograph (mine makes 2 revolutions/minute). On the case, there are three large knobs on the right and two small flush screw-like objects on left. The large knobs (top to bottom) are month selection, time set, and day of week select. Month and day can be selected by pushing the knob to the desired date. On the left, you will need a fine pen or stylus to press the center. Top to bottom, these two buttons control year and date selection.

You didnt have a manual when you purchased the watch? That is very odd...I would see if you could go back to store and get one.

The date will not change, it will with the crown but when i advance the hands it will not change.


Try to advance hands for full circle more (12 hrs more). If this does not work, then you will have to find your nearest watch repair shop, because one of the date change gear wheels is faulty.
Rate me, plz.
