Fossil Big Tic Watch - setting the correct time on the digital display
This watch has anolog hands on a plain black face. I was always fine with that until it stopped. I had the batteries (2) changed and discovered that there also is a digital display of the minutes. Apparently, one of the batteries was already dead when I received this watch.
After both batteries were replaces it works great BUT I can't set the digital display of the minutes to the correct time. Any ideas?
Re: Fossil Big Tic Watch - setting the correct time on...
The watch is scrolling through the seconds, and is not something that needs to be set. If there is a bottom it is only there to change the way the seconds are scrolling? There are many different types of these, but most are just standard seconds.

Just tried this procedure to replace a watch battery in a POD 535 and did not work...my version of the watch might be different, all I am saying is it did not work with my watch. The procedure that worked with my watch When you have replaced the battery reset the watch by placing a small screw driver across the two recessed contact next to the lower battery clip. The digital display will reset and you will see four zero's flashing...if not press the winder button once, or reset the watch again. This process is to get all the hands at twelve O clock position...press and hold the top right hand button and the hands will start revolving...you can let go of the button once the hand are moving. Pressing the top button again will stop the hands and a short press will move the hands in small increments. Once the hands get close to 12 press then press the button once and then press the same button in short pulses to align all the hands on the 12 position. Wait a short time and the watch will find the time signal and both the digital display and hands will be aligned and showing the correct time.
All you would have to do is change the time from either the digital mode or the anolog hands , you can choose one which is incorrect and try to change it.
Now to change the analog clock's settings , you would have a button which you can manually rotate and set the time, this is how you would be able to recognise that it's for the anolog time modification.
If you need to change the digital time , all you have to do is find out buttons that are present on the watch , and then try to change the time.
Note:- If you find a circled knob , remember that could only be for anolog time change as digital time is never changed using such knobs or screws , but have seperate button for that function.
In case you have any queries, feel free to get back.
that happened to me too...the watch repair man told me that I had the stop watch on. The stop watch should serve as a stop watch, not the second hand. The second time on your watch is the small dial at the bottom middle of the face. Once I turned off the stop watch feature, my battery life is fine...I have not had to change my battery in over 2 years now. HOpe this helps.
I guess the blue faced SEIKO is a Flightmaster (Model: 7T92- OCFO)and it is a great watch. This is a common problem with most chronographs and this happens due to misalignment with usage.
All you need to do is pull out the locking crown all the way out (2nd Step) as if setting time. and then press and hold the top / left button and at first the milli seconds hand resets. after which you have to press the borrom / right button to move the seconds hand in to place. and then reset the time and lock the crown. You can repeat this for Milli Seconds, Seconds, Minutes & hours hands.
Hope this helps,

if your hands aren't straight when you use the compass try this to sync the hands.
1. Press and hold the middle button to enter T-Touch mode. 2. Press the centre area on the face twice to display 24hr/12hr 3. Press and hold the middle button to enter T-Touch mode untill screen says sync.The hands will face 1200.
4. Press either the upper (East) or lower (West) button to adjust the compass hands. They should both face 1200. 5. Press the middle button to get back to 'regular' compass mode. Note that your offset setting will still show in the digital area.
