My watch is the Timex Indiglo WR30M analog watch with a big white face and black numbers/hands. The strap is metal. I know how to change the date and the time (by pulling the stem out to either the date or the time position), but how do I change the DAY? Right now, it's stuck on Monday the 2nd, however today is Sunday the 2nd.
I have the Indiglo WR 30M but there is only ONE "stem out" position. I was able to change the date by repeatedly winding forward to 1:00 am position, then going back to 7:30 pm,, and repeating. However, I can find no way to move the "day" indicator, which doesn't conincide with the present date. I've dilligiently tried finding intermediate "stem out" positions, to no avail. I've also tried pulling ******* the stem to see if there is a far out position . . . also to no avail. This watch seems to be one of the dumbest purchases I have ever made.
On some analog Timex watches with a day/date window there are only two "pull-out" positions on the stem, one for changing the date and one for the time. To change the day you need to pull the stem all the way out and crank the hands through 24 hour periods until you get the day correct. Be sure that you have the correct AM/PM setting (if you are setting the watch after noon you need to advance the hands another 12 hours so that the day changes at midnight)

1Pinch the winding knob on the right side of the watch between your thumb and forefinger.
2 Pull the knob out from the watch slowly until it clicks into the first position.
3Turn the knob to move the hour and minute hand to set the time. Move the knob clockwise to move the settings forward and counterclockwise to move them backwards.
4 Pull the knob out further until it clicks into the second position. In the second position (the one furthest from the face), turn the knob to set the calendar, if your Indiglo has one. Turn the knob clockwise to move the settings forward and counterclockwise to move them backward. Push the knob back in to the watch face when you are done.
How to Set Digital Indigo Watches
1 Press the button on the lower right side of your Indiglo watch to unlock the mode function of the watch.
2 Press the button on the lower left side to move through the modes. Each time you are in a mode, the digital display will flash. For example, when the time display begins to flash, you are in the correct mode to set the time.
3 Change the time (or date) by pressing the button on the upper right side to advance the numbers or the button on the left side to move the numbers down. When you do this, you will be changing the first set of numbers (the hour or month, for instance); to change the minutes, press the button on the right side of the face until the second set of numbers is flashing and begin the process again.
4 Press the button on the lower left side of the watch to save your settings. The button on the upper left side of the watch is not used in this process--it is the switch to turn on your Indiglo light.
Insane as it seems, apparently the Indiglo wr30m watch stem does NOT have either a set screw or a release button. No vice needed though, just good fingernails. Pull it out one click to the 'set time' position and pull it out some more and it comes out.
Turning it backwards didn't work on my watch. I ended up winding the time ahead several days worth to show the right day of the week (being careful to turn it to the correct 9 o'clock of the day, for me is was the first for morning.) Then I could go ahead and change the date using the first click postition of the stem.
I see that light bulb going off and you whispering "why, of course!"
