How To Set A Vintage Fossil Watch

Need to know how to set a vintage Fossil watch? If you are lucky enough to get your hands on a vintage Fossil watch, you will need to know how to set it. Fossil watches are some of the best in the business. Vintage watches are not like the watches found today. Setting a vintage Fossil watch requires following some simple steps. The Fossil brand of watches was established in 1984. Remember, even the nicest Fossil watches are useless if you cannot properly set the time. In order to set a vintage Fossil watch, you will need to know the current time.

  1. The first Fossil watches were digital. For a vintage Fossil digital watch, begin by pressing the "A" button. Press and hold the "A" button. It will then begin flashing the time or date. To select the numbers, press "B" until you reach the desired number. The "B" button will allow you to switch between the time, month, day and year. When you enter each, press "A" to save and exit.
  2. Analog watches began appearing shortly after their digital counterparts. To set an vintage Fossil analog watch, pull out the crown and turn it counter-clockwise. Continue turning until the hands display the desired time. Once the time is correct, push the crown back in.
  3. If you have a multi-function watch, set the time as you would with an analog watch. As you move the crown, the small dial displaying the days of the week will also move. To set the date, pull the crown out, but not all the way. Turn it counter-clockwise to display the date. Once the time and date are correct, push the crown back into place.
