Question about Bulova Watch
The instructions that came with my watch only shows how to get to the area needed to make the change of date and time but it does not tell you how to make the changes once you are there.
I just dug my watch out after not wearing for a few years and had the same problem. There is an easy way to adust this watch's time and alarm, basically one way to enter both.
1) With the watch in the regular time display mode (doesn't matter if 12 hour or military time), depress and hold the lower left hand button (mode button). After a few seconds the watch appears to shift to alarm mode and it is blinking. This puts you into the mode for adjusting the alarm.
2) If you want to adjust time, date, etc rather than alarm time, after you have done step one, simply press that same lower left button again, and then it will put you into the time mode, but this time the time mode is blinking and you can adjust the various components (seconds, minutes, hours). You can only move minutes, hours, etc forward, no way to move backward. You will start off with the second display blinking, probably skip that unless you need to adjust seconds. Depress the upper right button to shift to the next option (minutes) and you will see the minute display blinking. Adjust the minutes by depressing the lower right button. When finished depress upper right button to move to next option (hours) depress the lower right button to move the minutes/hours/month/date forward as necessary, when you finish just press the lower left button again and it pulls you out of adjust mode and you are back in regular time viewing.
I had to post this because I've had this problem in the past and it killed me. Its kind of intuititve after you get into the adjusting mode by pressing the lower left button- remember, initially it will put you into adjust alarm mode, but press again and you will get into adjust time mode.

hold the left, bottom button (marked ....) for a few seconds....then press the top right button (marked with 1 dot) to change between the hour, minute, date etc. use the bottom right button to advance the flashing number, and when finished setting time and date, use the bottom left button to stop the numbers flashing and return the watch to normal. hope this helps, this is also how to change the date for the other question asker (works on 2 other starck/fossil watches i have and i assume the controls are the same).

SOURCE: Timex Indiglo Acqua watch
For analog Acqua watches adjust date when month has less than 31 days:
3-Position Crown: Pull crown to "MIDDLE" position and turn CLOCKWISE or
COUNTERCLOCKWISE until correct date appears.
2-Position Crown: Pull crown to "OUT" position and turn CLOCKWISE until date
changes (approx.1:00 a.m.). Then turn COUNTERCLOCKWISE to 7:30 p.m. Repeat until correct date appears.

I found users instructions on roxy website at:
We were able to program our watch completely!!!
If you look on the back of the watch that you bought on the metal plate, it tells you the style. Ours was the Roxy 70's digital watch, and I found specific instructions at (even if this is not your style, the instructions may work):
