Bulova Watches - Popular Questions, Answers, Tips & Manuals


I have changed batteries on watches before but none were bulova. I opened the back which you have to do to change battery find what battery you need and order online. I have been able to find at stores year ago but most watches now days people don't change batteries they buy new watches. It is a little harder to find batteries in stores.
When you find the type battery google to get the place to buy it.

Maybe "Bulova" have "Energy save mode" like my "Casio ProTrek"? Both models are quartz movement. When I don't wearing my watch he go sleep after 1 day and wake up when I pick up.

If there is a dead battery in the watch, when it is opened, that is one way to identify the battery size.

A second way, if no battery left in it, is to go to a local jeweler or watch battery replacement kiosk at the shopping mall.

Third, contact Bulova at phone number shown:

FIXYA unpaid volunteers seriously would not be able to appraise them through the internet. It will result in many more unanswered questions with little detail to assist anyone. In my case, I have an old watch from my grandfather - can you tell me if it is worth anything and how much? (How can that question be answered without being rude?)

You can use http://www.google.com to search for more information, and perhaps check for an appraiser.

Another approach is to search http://www.ebay.com and see if the model name you enter appears for sale anywhere.

The battery you put in may also be defective to start with. You need to have a proper watch battery tester to know if the battery is actually good.

As for cleaning a watch the watch maker will take all the tiny mechanical pieces apart, put them in to a very fine screen basket, and submerge the pieces in to the cleaning solution inside of an ultra sonic cleaning machine. Once cleaned he will maliciously re-assemble all the pieces in back in to the casing structure and lubricate with the very fine 000 viscosity oil used for watches. Then he will perform all the necessary mechanical adjustments.

Personally, if not properly trained and not having the proper tools and jigs I do not think you would be able do this type of work without ruining the watch...

Yes you do. There is a screw head at the top and the rest is pin. You need a set of jewelers screwdrivers.
