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.

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!!

For some reason you cannot find the manuals on the Bulova web site any longer. But don't worry....
I have the manual for the Bulova Marine Star 96C30 Watch. This is easily fixable.
Below, I have typed the instruction on how to fix this issue as well as reset the time and calendar and a few extra tips in case you forgot....

Here is what it says to do if the hands don't match up with the display time (usually happens after you change the battery).
First, you must locate the buttons on the watch.
The "A" button is at the 2 o'clock position (upper right). The "B" button is at the 10 o'clock position (upper left) The "C" button is at the 8 o'clock position (lower left) The "M" (mode) button is at the 4 o'clock position (lower right), and is the only button you can pull out to set the times, calendar and programming.
To RESET the watch and do the ZERO POSITIONING after changing a battery or having a display error, do the following.
RESET 1. Pull the "M" button out to the setting position. 2. hold down the "A", "B", and "C" buttons simultaneously for 3 seconds, then release them. All digit segments will turn on and display completely.
ZERO POSITIONING 1. Press the "B" button and all the segments in the digital time will reset to zero, with "UTC" showing in the main digital window. 2. Zero the "UTC" minute and hour hand (located in 12 o'clock sub-dial) to the 24 o'clock maker (straight up). Button "A" will move the hands clockwise, and button "C" will move the hands counter clockwise. 3. Press button "B" - "HR" shows in the main digital window. Adjust the main (large) hour hand to the 12 o'clock (midnight) position using "A" and "C" buttons. At the same time, observe the synchronized 24 hour hand (small dial to the left of the main dial), to insure that it also moves to point to "24". 4. Press button "B". "MIN" shows in the display window. Adjust the large minute hand to also point to the 12 using the "A" and "C" buttons. 5. Push the "M" (mode) button back in to its normal position. The watch beeps and at the same time the hands jump slightly. ALL RESET and ZERO POSITIONING are now complete. 6. Reset the time, calendar and other modes.
To set the time. Note that changing the time in any of the cities will automatically update the time for all the cities. 1. Press the "M" button to move the mode hand to (TME) 2. Press either the "A" or "C" button to move to the desired city. 3. Pull the "M" button out to the setting position. 4. Press the "A" button. SECONDS will blink. Set them with "C". 5. Press the "A" button again, and MINUTES will blink. Set them with the "C" button. 6. Press the "A" button again, and HOURS will blink. Set with the "C" button. 7. Press the "A" button again, and 12 or 24 hours tim format will appear. 8. Push in the "M" button to its normal position.
To set the calender 1. push the "M" button to move the mode hand to (CAL) 2. Set the city using the "A" or "C" buttons. 3. Pull out the "M" button to the "setting" position. The numbers of the "month" starts to blink. this is an "american" date system with the month first, day second, and year third. Use "C" button to adjust the month. 4. Push the "A" button. The date (day) will flash. Adjust with the "C" button. 5. Push the "A" button. The YEAR flashes. Adjust with the "C" button. 6. Push the "M" button back in. The calender is simultaneously adjusted for all cities.
Couple of other "tips".
Switching the time on the digital display with the time shown on the hands: 1. Press the "M" button until the mode hand is in (TME) or (CAL) mode. 2. Pressing the "A" and "C" button together. The time will switch the between the main hands (analog) and the digital display.
Temporary Hand Retraction Pressing and holding the "B" button will move the hands out of the way of the display. Repressing the "B" button will put the hands back at the correct time.
hope this helps.

Start with watch in normal clock mode. press and hold bottom right "lap reset" - alarm time appears. Keeping "lap reset" held, I can then toggle the alarm on and off using top right "start/stop".
Qiu: Circle segment lights up (only a black point in the middle, NO ALARM)
Circle segment with a black section on the above middle point, ALARM ON.

take it to MACYs and say , can you pop in a new battery.
or any watch repair shop, can.
this is very old cheap watch and manuals are not easy to find.

While I can find "Marine Star" in the list of models, I could not find one with the same refernce number.

There are a number of models so if you go to http://www.bulova.com/brands/bulova/bulova.aspx?brand=bulova#coll_id=30&coll_name=Marine%20Star&gender=1 ", you may be able to find one that looks like yours.

If you click on a watch, details appear and these include operating instructions.

mcdevito75 here, Even a so called new battery could be weak, who knows how long it was in the store before being sold. Try another Battery from another store.

Bulova's manual for setting the 90A07 is a Technical Letter, Book No. 442, Model 3S10.

Otherwise, the movement in the watch is a Caliber 3530 by Miyota, and Miyota and Citizen publish an instructions and repair manual for it.

This is merely a video on how to reset the second hand on your Marine Star.

But perhaps it has some information that will be helpful to you.

The FC 270 does not have a second hand, the red tipped hand points to the month.

Google (Bulova)(97C106)(manual) without parens for instructions.

I just got a M.Z. Berger AW206 366 so the setup should be identical.
The watch has four buttons total. I'll name then by their positions. Top Left (TL), Top Right (TR), Bottom Left (BL), and Bottom Right (BR).
(BL) is your mode switch. Press it once at a time to toggle between modes, (Time, Chronograph, and Alarm). From the Time mode press (BL) three times. This will put you back in time mode with the seconds flashing. Press (TR) to toggle seconds back to '00'. Press (BR) to toggle to the next setting point, and (TR) to advance it. Just keep pressing (BR) until all the settings points are the way you want them. Note: In time setting mode it only advances the setting forward when you press (TR). So when using it to change hours display for 12/24 hour display or daylight savings time you just have to keep advancing the hour until it shows up correct. There is no DST or 12/24 display toggle on this watch. You just have to change the hours display manually. To exit time setting just press (BL) once.

Take your Bulova watch to a jeweler who will demonstrate how to open the back.
