    Help with repairing Stempo 1983 vintage digital watch.

    Hello!
    I recently bought a Stempo vintage digital watch, from 1983, from the thrift shop in town for only 50¯¢. I got a new battery for it, (362) and I was excited for it to turn on, but to my suprise, it is stuck on 1:00. Since it's a vintage digital watch I did what I expected to work, held down the button in the middle with a pen, and waited for it to flash, but it wouldn't change, no matter what I press, it won't work, It has stayed at 1:00 for 2 hours and I have no idea why! If anybody can help me with this, that would be awesome! I have included some pictures below to take a better look, I cannot find the model online but I have found similar Stempo watches, So, if any of you can help, that'd be great! Thanks!
