Question about Timex 27191 Wristwatch
Indiglo works but watch doesn't - I put in a new battery but it's still not working and it's fairly new - should I send it in with $7 - and if so - who do I make the check out to...thank you
I ended up putting the watch between two layers of a shop rag and tightened it in my garage vise. First try didn't work so the second try I turned the vise another /14 turn. Voilla! Stupid watch!!

I had the same problem, and could not find any answers on timex.com. After you place the battery in and it begins to beep, push all four buttons in at the same time. This should "reset" the watch -- at least it did for me.

I used to work with jewelry. !!BEWARE!!
This method is for face crystals that are completely FLAT! Any convex crystal will shatter without proper tools!!!
Any method of putting the watch cover back with the watch remotely near water/moisture is a mistake. The watch will rust sooner or later.
So if you don't want to pay a jeweler five dollars to put it back on, this is what I did to my sister's watch cover when I could not snap it back.
I took my cushy 1/4 inch mousepad to a vise. You may not have a vise. If you don't, stop reading now and take the watch to a jeweler --one who replaces batteries.
Inside the vise jaws, I used a 5 inch square piece of wood, then my cushy mousepad, then the watch facing the pad, then the back in the right place for restoring.
!!!!NOTE: Not having the back in the right place will smash the stem and damage can/will result!!!
To push the back on, I picked a 12 point socket out of my socket set that was the same DIAMETER as the watch back and placed it CENTERED behind the back.
Recapping, inside vise:
I DO NOT RECOMMEND THAT YOU DO WHAT I DID. People with broken watch crystals become very IRATE when "all it needed was a battery"!
A screw clamp would also give adequate pressure. Any unsupported direct pressure over the crystal will shatter it!
Hope this helped.

Use the numbers on the back of your watch and you will have a PDF version of your instruction manual.
Hope this tip helps
