Changing Watch Batteries
Lots of posters ask "what is the battery in my (name of watch)" with a view to changing it yourself. This is a bad idea for many reasons. You don't have the tools or knowledge to remove a rotary screw on back, or the gasket sealant for a waterproof watch. Some fashion watches have 4 traditional screw and need professional grade jeweler screwdrivers. Also, there are about 20 batteries commonly used in watches, in various sizes and internal technology, Lithium Ion, Silver Oxide and Manganese Alkaline. If you buy them, you generally have to buy 10!

Don't sweat the details. Just take the watch to your local jeweler. They have all the batteries at hand and the tools to remove the back. It is done whilst you wait for $8 to $15!

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!!

On sale in 2003 on Amazon but no longer available. It did not appear when I searched using https://www.google.com

Another web site suggests it has an original model, but you would have to correspond with the seller to ask if a manual is included, or could be copied and sold separately to you.

The whole front square face of the clock has 4 little nails which are located in the middle of each side (inside and next to the edge of the joint), so you have to carefully insert a screwdriver and lever the front out. After this you have to remove the hands (remember to set the clock and alarm hand to 12:00 before taking those away). The face will be loose, and you'll have access to the mechanism. Clean the alarm contact (look for a double silver metal arm that touches an small bronze stick. Alarm button can be release by gently lever the little nail that shows in the center when button is up at clock's backside.

Its not unheard of depending on the age of the watch (you say you purchased it 16 months ago but it could be a 15 year old watch.) If it was a new Rolex watch you have a 5 year warranty, so it should cost you nothing. If it was a pre-owned Rolex you should have received a warranty from your jeweler, most of those are 2 years. If this is a watch with value, and one you will either hand down or at some point resell then sending an older watch to Rolex is the proper direction - save all the repair documents, with the original receipt and the box. A Rolex Explorer II in good condition in US is about $5k, so $380 for a repair, though high, is worth it. I would recommend that if you do send it to Rolex for this repair and it is an older watch have it serviced too. The watch is returned to you in perfect condition with fill documentation.
Lastly, you need not to send it to Rolex at all. Any good watchmaker/repair jeweler can do this for less than $380US.

It seems that most 4 button electronic watches have similar directions. There should be four buttons. Clockwise from top left is the Light button, followed by S2 (Stop), S1 (Reset) and finally on the lower left S3 (Mode). Who knows why they are numbered this way. To set hourly chime Hold down S1 and press S3. When all 7 day flags show the chime is on. When they are off the chime is off. To set the alarm hold down S1 and press S2. Alarm icon will display or go off. Release S1 button and display will return to normal time. Hope this works for your watch

To change the clock format, visit the General section of Momentum's Settings ??, scroll down to the Clock Format option and then click 12 hour or 24 hour to the right of it. When you switch to the 12-hour format, the AM/PM unit will display for a moment and then fade away to keep the interface clean.

HOW TO START YOUR WATCH Quartz Movement:

To start your watch remove the plastic guard from under the crown, then press the crown in against the case. The second hand will begin advancing in one-second intervals. Some deep-depth water-resistant watches require the setting crown to be screwed in to secure water-resistance. If your watch case has a protrusion with screw threads, the crown must be screwed in after setting the watch. To screw in, push the crown firmly against the threaded protrusion and hold in while turning the crown clockwise. Continue to screw in the crown until it is tight. You will need to unscrew the crown (counter-clockwise) before pulling it out the next time you want to set your watch.
