Fossil Big Tic Watch - setting the correct time on the digital display

This watch hasĀ 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 replacesĀ it works great BUT I can't set the digital display of the minutes to the correct time. Any ideas?

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.

Need owners manual for fossil Big Tic Blue JR 8624


Inside the case back on my JR-7855 is a label with the steps to take to change the batteries. The sticker says to short the pad marked "S1" with the pad marked "+". Keep doing it quickly, then check the watch facelb_icon1.png. You got it right when the seconds start to change on the face.

I have a big tic fossil watch. The flashing second is working properly, but the hand doesnt. It looks like slowing down. How can I fix this problem. Thank you


your watch has two batteries inside, the small battery is the one that had to be replaced. it is under the big battery, the small battery makes the minute and hour hand move while the big battery makes the seconds flashing. i hope that i had been helped you.

I have a BIG TIC JR-8529. Is this model obsolete? The watch was not working properly (stopping/slowing down), so I replaced the battery. It seems fine now, but still no digital display in the background...


Since Fossil do not list their instructions under model numbers it is difficult to be sure that you rmodel still exists but if you go to their web site for instructions http://www.fossil.co.uk/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ContentView?langId=10&storeId=32553&catalogId=20002&page=instructions

(click on this link to go there) and you will see some instructions for various big tic watches and you can select the one that suits yours.

The only one that I could find that had a single button above the winder used it to cahnge the colour. Pressing this button for 2 seconds will change the colour to "alternating" and the same again will produce a fixed colour. Perhaps this will make the change of display you need.

Often with watches, you need to use a pair of tweezers to short the battery case to the chassis ((often marked "ac"). This seems to be a re-set function, although I have never found an explanation for the need to do this.

If all else fails, look up their contact details and speak to them about your problem.

The hands have stopped on my Fossil Big Tic watch but the digital display still works, like the seconds.


This watch has 2 batteries so sounds like the main one has gone flat and the display one is still going, you just need to get the battery replaced.

I have a big tic watch but after a battery change the digital number display on watch face no longer works,why?


Who changed the battery, you or a watch repair serviceman? Did you replace the battery bar after you replaced battery? Did you check and see if there was a second battery (some watches have two)
You may need to have it serviced. Or try Fossil at :

Fossil Big Tic Brown Cuff Watch - Faulty??


Hello, not much help I'm afraid, but I was wondering where you intend to get the replacement battery for the 'tic' part? I'm trying to avoid sending it to Fossil.

I imagine your fault would be covered by warranty, and you get 2 years as well I think?
