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.

I know it's been a while since you posted this question, but I just had to do this with mine after it was lost in a drawer for a few years, and I had no luck googling so I had to figure it out for myself.

First, you have to remove the band, but you only need to do this on one end, not both. I did this by twisting the watch body around while holding the cloth/leather portion of the band still, letting the elastic part twist around with the watch body. Then, just use a fingernail to pull on the ridges on one end of one of the pins that are holding the band on; both ends are spring-loaded, so it doesn't matter which. Twist the watch body back around, and you'll now be able to flip it over to expose the back.

Now, take a thin, strong blade (I used a butterknife) and pry off the back plate. There's a tab on the upper right edge of the back plate to make this much easier. Since it probably came off in the process, place the rubber sealant ring back around the edge of the backplate.

Once you have the back plate off, there's a thin metal piece covering the battery that's held on with one screw. Remove that with an eyeglass screwdriver or any other similarly-sized Phillips-head screwdriver. There's just a small tab holding the metal piece in place on the other side, so just flip the metal piece up a bit and pull it out. You can now take the battery (a CR2016 3-volt watch battery) right out.

But wait, what's this? Beneath that battery, separated by a small plastic insert, is another, smaller one, a 377/376 1.55-volt watch battery. The 377/376 powers the analog movement, while the CR2016 powers all the digital stuff and the backlight.

Replace both batteries, making sure to place the plastic insert back on top of the 377/376 before putting the CR2016 back in, and follow the steps in reverse to put the watch back together. You may have some difficulty getting the back plate back on, but I just pressed one side in and held it while I tapped the other side down with my fist.

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 watch has four buttons. The lower left button is labeled MODE on the face of the watch. There are four modes and pressing the MODE button will step through each mode until you return to the mode at the start of the process. Start at the "Normal" timekeeping mode and press the "MODE" button three times until the digital display rightmost two figures for seconds flash.
Press the lower right button labeled RESET until the item you want to change is flashing. Pressing RESET cycles through seconds, minutes, hours, day, month, day of the week in the top sub-dial and then back to seconds again.
When the item you want to change is flashing press the top right button labeled START to step the displayed item to the value you want. When you are satisfied all the settings are correct, press the lower left button marked MODE to return to normal operation.

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