Wich battery number may i use in this watch bulova 96t63 ??thanks


cant see that model watch on the Bulova web site user manuals
http://www.manualslib.com/brand/bulova/watch.html
if unsure if it needs a battery go to a jeweler or watch or battery seller

some model Bulova Watched instructions
IF YOUR NEW WATCH IS A MECHANICAL WATCH
(no battery)
Mechanical watches differ from Quartz watches in several
respects:
1. No battery changes are needed - they are powered by a main-
spring, which is wound either by wrist movement; or in some
models by daily winding of the setting crown.
2. Because it is a mechanical device, it's accuracy is subject to
the effects of gravity and temperature. You can expect, on the
average, a daily variance of up to 10 to 20 seconds for
mechanical watches.
3. Just like automobiles, these watches require routine mainte-
nance. Due to their mechanical complexity, mechanical
watches require cleaning and new lubrication every 3 to 5
years to run at optimum efficiency.
FOR THE AUTOMATIC SELF-WINDING
MECHANICAL WATCH
it must be wound at least six or seven times before you wear it.
After that, your daily activity should wind the watch sufficiently
to keep it running at night when it is not being worn. If your
normal daily activity is not sufficient, occasional supplementary
manual winding may be necessary. It is suggested that your
mechanical watch be cleaned and oiled periodically to insure
optimum performance. As a mechanical watch, quartz watch
accuracy cannot be expected. References to the power cell do
not apply to Automatic watches

Winder for automatic watch


When you wind it manually (forward or clockwise) it winds the mainspring. Only need to watch it 5 or 6 times if it's completely stopped you wearing it will do the rest. If you going to get a automatic winder get one that will wind in both directions. It will give a few revolutions clockwise and then we'll go reverse counterclockwise.
Hope this answers your questions thank you.

I'm not sure about this arm movement.


if the watch as not been worn for a long time it's best to wind it by hand first to get it started, just make sure the winder is pushed all the way in and then just keep winding it clockwise till it start going..

New watch bulova 96R-19 women, and dont know how to start...


I have read the instruction for this watch and I am surprised how little they tell you!

The description of the watch does not say if it is automatic or battery driven so I shall give you two alternatives to try:-

1) If it is battery driven, then there may be a wedge under the winder to prevent it going into the running position (to save the battery while it is on the shelf). Pull this out and push the winder home.

2) If it is automatic, then it is mechanically driven by a spring and needs to be wound up. This is done by either turning the winding knob or gently shaking it from side to side form some minutes. Once going, such a watch needs to be worn daily to keep it running. They will normally run for 1 - 2 days before stopping when not being worn.

If you were not given instructions with your watch, you can get them from their web site http://www.bulova.com/brands/bulova/product.aspx?origin=sku&sku=96R19&brand=bulova.

How do you get started to wind a BMW watch. There is no resistance when I wind the crown. There does nt seem to be any plastic or anything in the way. I ve set the date successfully. Its a BMW Chrono...


mcdevito75 here, BMW watch, nice watch, Actually there are 2 ways to start winding an automatic or self wind watch. Since you feel no resistance in the winder (crown) which if you did, would mean the automatic mechanism is attached by gear to the mainspring and winding the crown (stem) would start the winding process. Without any resistance winding the crown, your automatic mechanism is free-lance as a way of saying, in your watch which simply means your BMW watch winds solely on wrist / arm motion. First, make sure you hear the automatic mechanism moveing inside the watch when you move the watch in almost any direction, now simply hold the watch in your hand and with a rocking motion, say from 12--to 6 rock your hand back and forth for about 30 seconds. You can also make circular motions with the watch in your hand for 30 seconds, any motion that will cause the automatic movement in your watch to move will, start the winding process. After you see you watch has started, simply wear your watch to keep it wound.

Bulova Millennia Motion Quartz Watches (kinetic watche)needs no battery,but i put it on a automatic winder all night and it will run about 10 hours and quite running. jerdel@zoominternet.net jerdel 29


It seems as though it needs some attention, i.e. serving might be needed.

If servicing proves to be unsuccessful in improving performance, then it should be sent to their service center (see Boluva.com).

Bulova Watch Millennia Motion 96B17 - stops - needs battery????


Dude, of course it stops during the night - it's a perpetual motion / kinetic watch. It doesn't have a conventional battery. When you move your arm (while wearing it), the natural motion of your arm will 'automagically' wind the watch. There's nothing wrong with it - these types of watches always have to be re-set in the morning if you don't wear it to bed (or you don't toss and turn in bed).

Anne Klein 10 8755svtt watch will not keep ticking


First you have to find out if your watch is (as you say) automatic. If it is, then it is NOT kinetic and you will need a proper watchmaker to get it going.
My experiance is: there are NO automatic or kinetic watches in Anne Klein range. All of them are or were battery driven. Might be you came across the one auto, but it's hard to believe.
To make sure: Try wind it up. If you don't hear the specific sound, this is not an auto watch. If the winder(crown) is easily moving back and forth- your watch is battery driven.
Do not rate me yet, as this is not a solution, just an advice.
Want your watch working again?- Let me know, I'll guide you how to do that.

Patek Phillipe replica watch starts & stops


Try to wind it up using crown (winder). If it has automatic winder it will wind itself up while you wearing it on wrist.
