I have the manual (although it seems to cater for many different models and subsequently is confusing) and think that I am following it correctly but am getting 2 problems - 1) the manual seems to suggest that there are 4 crown positions - I can only find 2 (open and closed) 2) the manual stated that with the crown open, I can set the time by rotating the crown in either direction. This only makes the hour hand move - the minute hand twitches but will not budge? Any suggestions? - I just bought the thing today and am really frustrated with it (and myself if I'm doing something wrong!).

The WR-100M is not actually the model number of your watch, but rather only an indication of the Water Resistance rating of that particular model (100 Meters) and is found on many different models of Timex watches. You should be able to find the actual model number on the back of the watch under the strap.
Here is a direct link to the TIMEX SUPPORT page where you can download the appropriate USER'S MANUAL for your particular model of TIMEX watch:
Just use your mouse to click on the link, which is the underlined and blue highlighted text just above.
This will open a new web browser page automatically for you and allow you to view the information at the website indicated and the complete list of available TIMEX Watch Owner's Manuals for you to download.
You may need ADOBE READER installed on your computer to read PDF documents, although many computers already have this type of utility pre-installed.
You can download this free at WWW.ADOBE.COM if necessary. Click on the DOWNLOAD ADOBE READER button on right side of the ADOBE home page when you get there, then follow the onscreen instructions to install the software on your computer.
If you cannot find the automatic way of setting the hands, you can manually reset the analogue hands by pressing the mode button until you reach the "HS" mode and using the 2 or 4 o'clock buttons to adjust the hands.
Take the battery out again and let the watch "rest" for a couple of hours without the battery. That sometimes resets the Quartz mechanism, and will allow a clean restart. Also, refer to the following info if needed.
Timex has two ways to find information about your particular watch. Some of these models only have a guide consisting of a few pages. If you don't have the manual, Try this link:
Now, look up the model number, or if you cannot find that, check the three-digit Module Number from the back of the watch. Click on it in the Module Table, and download a PDF of your watch setting-instructions/manual.
If you need further help, call Timex in Little Rock, Arkansas, phone 1-800-448-4639. I hope this helps you. Thanks, Bill

It's broken. Mine is doing the same thing. Others online have experienced the same defect. I bought mine from woot.com in July and just gave it to my son for Christmas. Check the Seiko website and send it in for repair. It has a 3 yr warranty.
press the T button until the crystal is activated.
press the middle of the glass until the time format appears (24hb Cm appears)
hold the T button for 5secs (SYNCHro appears)
move the hands until they are at 12 o'clock. ( + button moves the minute hand. - button moves the hour hand)
press the T button to set.
It is possible to set the main analogue hour and minute hand 30 minutes out of phase with the digital readout, but doing so will also put the analogue UTC dial 30 minutes off. It can be done by using a variation of the proceedure for zeroing the watch hands as follows:
1. Rotate the crown in its normal opering position to set the watch in chronograph mode (mode dial pointing to "chr")
2. Pull out the crown to the second click. This should cause all the hands on the watch to return to zero. "HR" should appear on the left-hand digital display. This will allow you to move the hour hand by twisting the crown. Advance it to about half way between the 12 o'clock and 1 o'clock positions.
3. Press the top button. "MIN" should appear in the left-hand digital display. This allows you to adjust the minute hand. Twist the crown to advance it to the 6 o'clock, or 30 minute, position. Note that this will also move the minute hand on the small UTC dial to the 30 minute position.
4. Press the crown back into its normal position.
5. Reset the digital time and date according to a time zone that is in a one-hour offset from UTC.
This is not a perfect solution. Your digital readings will show the correct time for all one-hour offset time zones while your analogue nads are 30 minutes out of phase. Your small UTC dial will also be 30 minutes out of phase with the digital UTC.
Hope this helps.
