The pin used to set the time pulled out completely
My watch looks exactly the same except for the gold finish and the date display, mine is only silver and shows the time. After changing the battery I tried to set the time right and the pin pulled out? I'm in Australia now, how much would it be to get it fixed? Should I send it in at a Fossil shop or could someone else help me the same?

All you have to do is to set the digital time.After pressing the upper left button for 2-3 seconds the display digits start to flash.By pressing lower left button (MODE) once at a time and by using the left side buttons, you can set the right time,date etc.When finished press upper left button again to complete setting.Automatically the hour and minute hands will be set to the correct time following the digital time.

A watch is only useful if it displays the correct time. Over time, your watch may display the incorrect time as the battery wears down. After installing a new battery, you will also need to reset the time. All Invicta watches have similar instructions for setting the time. Setting the time does not require any tools or equipment.
I nearly went crazy pushing buttons, but finally got the right combination. From the normal Time Display (as you would normally use the watch, no need to push any buttons) Push and Hold for a few seconds the Lap/Reset Button. The "Set" Mode will become active. Release the Lap/Reset button when Set appears in the Display. Notice in the Display a small Arrow that points to a button, either the ST/STP or Mode Button. (Initially it will be the ST/STP Button). When you depress the button to which the arrow points, the Field Flashing in the display will be set (For ST/STP) or Changed to the next Field (When the Arrow Points to the Mode Button). Simply toggle through the fields (using the Mode Button) and set (using the ST/STP Button) as needed. You will also be offered the ability to set the Month, Date, Day, 12/24 HR, and a M-D (It stands for Month - Date, in Europe it's more common to display as Date - Month). I did not change this field since by default on my watch it displayed M - D first. The setting cycle will be finished off when you have set the various fields by again pushing the Lap/Reset Button. Not related to setting the watch, but possibly useful, the Watch will completely reset if all the buttons are pushed at the same time, including pushing the Display Light (or in the case of this watch, the illumination used for the Display Characters). Hope this helps, it worked for me.
To set the digital time and date on your Timex, please follow the steps below.

5. Repeat Steps 1 through 4 of this section to set the year, month, date and day and whether to use 12- or 24-hour time for your watch.
6. When finished, press the "Set" button (on the lower right) to return to the current time view and lock in your settings.
Pull the knob out. The second hand should stop ticking.
Twist the knob clockwise until the correct time is displayed on the watch face.
Push the knob back in, and the the second hand will resume ticking.
Press and hold the "Set" button for 2 seconds. The "Set" button is on the lower right sidePress the "Date Advance" button on the upper right side. This will reset the seconds.

When finished, press the "Set" button (on the lower right) to return to the current time view and lock in your setting.
First you need to unscrew the crown (setting knob) of the watch. Turn dial from up to down (downwards), you will feel the knob loosen and then it will pop out gently.
Pull out the pin very gently and turn downwards to set the date. If you have a Day and Date watch, turn upwards to set the day of the week.
To set the time, pull the pin out futher and turn to set the appropriate time.
Finally push pin in and simultaneously turn upwards to screw back the pin.
Please make sure you push turn the pin tightly because most cases of Water Damaged watches are caused due to the pin being screwed up not tight enough.
On some watches - scuba usually - the crown has a rubber seal and that seal is engaged when the crown is screwed to the case. If your watch is like this, you need to unscrew the crown before you can pull out the stem.
Twist the crown in a counterclockwise direction several turns. You will be able to tell when it is completely unscrewed because youwill feel spring tension. Pull out the stem to set the watch. When you finish, push the stem back in.
Push against the spring tension and carefully thread the crown back onto the case.
That should do it.
for a watch face that has a day of week, date, and moon calendar: There are two click points on the set-pin. pull out 1 click to access date/moon calendar; spin clockwise to set the moon calendar. spin counterclockwise to set date.
pull out pin 2 clicks to set time, just like any other watch
