20 Most Recent Bulova Men's Watch Questions & Answers

Most Bulova Watches have PRESSURE TIGHT backs. Meaning the back is applied with EQUAL amounts of pressure to the entire back. There are two(2) solutions:

1. Take the Bulova watch to an experienced watch dealer/repaiman, to have the back applied, or

2. CAREFULLY MAKE SURE THE BACK IS IN THE PROPER POSITION, then WRAP THE ENTIRE watch with a soft, cushy clothe and with a pair of pliers, CAREFULLY apply pressure to the center of the back plate, until the back covers seats to the proper depth(closed), at the same time BEING VERY CAREFUL not to crack the watch crystal!!

Hello I have the same watch and had the same problem. You press the mode button till you get to the point to change the main time, you then press the reset button (bottom button on right side of the watch)to toggle to the hour place, you then cycle thru the time untill the "h" in the top right hand corners disappears and then the watch will be back on regular time.

Some have a pop off case, find the "lip" on the case back and put a small screw driver or anything else metal that will fit under it and pry it off that way. Others have a screw on case back and will have 6
square slots around the outer edge, you will need a wrench for this that you can find on ebay

You could always ask the maker (go to Boluva.com and get the address of your nearest service center).

It seems s unlikely that they will be able to help with such an old watch but you never know your luck. I'm sure that they will be pleased to hear that your watch is still working after such a long time!

One of the two buttons is a mode button when you push on that button digits on your watch start blinking. Once the digits start blinking keep on pressing the other button till you get the desired digit and then press the mode button again to fix the digits and likewise you can set it for minutes also.

If you go to http://www.bulova.com/brands/bulova/product.aspx?origin=sku&sku=96B141&brand=bulova you will see a menu in the center of the screen. Choose operating instructions and download them.

Have a Merry Christmas!

You need a special tool called a case opener, if you flip the watch over you should see 6 square slots on the outer rim, this means that the back case is screwed on and probably has a water proof seal, keep in mind there are different sizes. I suggest you check ebay for watch tools, you might find what you are looking for.
