Re: my bulova watch isn't working
Even you change a new battery with desame size and volts not working.The problem is in the terminal where going to put the battery.The terminal had a dirt or a film residue that comes out from the battery,you better clean terminal by scratching the old film,the lying down terminal is negative,,the side terminal is positive you better observed polarity if happen inter change the battery side it will not works.If not working, even you clean already terminal,short the terminal connection for 3 seconds,If you have a flourescent with a ballast,put your watch lying where there is strong vibration for five minutes, your watch works 100% txt me whatever the result so i know it's ok.

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
To reset the watch, you need to 'short' the reset point with the battery. To do this, with the watch face down and the back removed the 'Reset' point is in the bottom right hand corner (a gold-coloured contact point). Use a pair of metal tweezers or an unbent paper-clip (anything as long as it's metal and will touch the reset point and the back of the battery at the same time). Maintain contact for about 5 seconds and you should get the display back. I've just changed the battery in my SDB 500W and the above method worked. I did lose the audible 'beep' though and I'm currently on the net trying to find how to get it back. That's how I found your question... :)
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).
As it had a battery change since it was new? If it uses a Miyota movement, it needs resetting after a battery change to restore the 12 position for the hands. It involves shorting 2 points on the back of the movement (needs back off).
