Timex Expedition speed

Any way to adjust the speed of the watch? Watch runs slow. Loses about 5 seconds per day or is this within normal specs?

It's not ok. Usual specs are +/- 1-2 secs a month, no more.
Try battery change first and if it doesn't help, go and see your nearest watcmaker to solve the problem.

This watch says "Strong Ideas" on the back instead of a 4 digit number.

Press LIGHT briefly and your LCD will be back lit for 5 seconds.

Press MODE to cycle through normal, alarm, dual time, and stopwatch display mode.

Hold MODE for 3 seconds to enable the radio to receive time signals. Once RC is activated, the watch will search for time signal automatically every day.
Hold LIGHT for 8 seconds to disable the RC function.
Press MODE, SET, and ADJUST simultaneously to reset the watch.

Press ADJUST while in normal mode to toggle year/time display.
Press SET while in year display to alternate Month-Day or Day-Month.

Hold SET for 2 seconds while in normal mode to cycle through world atomic radios (US/GB/DE/JP) push ADJUST to change, and SET to continue. Next the language will flash (GB/FR/DE/ES/IT). Next is DST on/off. Next, in order are hour, minute, second, year, month, day, and 12/24 Hr format.
(US only) Press SET to display timezone. The default is PA, use the ADJUST button to cycle through MO, CE, or EA as desired.

Press SET while in alarm mode to toggle alarm on/off.
Hold SET for 2 seconds while in alarm mode to change the hour and minute with the ADJUST button.

Press SET for 2 seconds while in dual time mode and ADJUST +/- 23 hours from normal time.

Press MODE to exit most settings.

Press ADJUST in stopwatch mode to start/stop the timer accumulatively.
Press SET to reset stopwatch to zero, or split measurements if timer is running.

Change the battery with a new CR2025 to prevent damage that low or dead batteries can cause by leaking.
Do not use solvents to clean the watch, use only a dry or water moistened cloth.
Do not use buttons when the watch is wet. Water may penetrate the watch and cause damage to it.

Nowhere in the little operations manual that came with my watch does it give the accuracy of the timepiece. Where can I get that information? I have a movado ESQ bracer chronograph.


Interesting question. I know little about watches but, as you would know, your watch does have a quartz movement, so, from Wikipedia, 'Quartz clock':

Standard-quality resonators of this type are warranted to have a long-term accuracy of about 6 parts per million at 31 degrees C (87.8 F): that is, a typical quartz wristwatch will gain or lose 15 seconds per 30 days (within a normal temperature range of 5 deg C / 41 F to 35 deg C / 95 F) or less than a half second clock drift per day when worn near the body.

If a quartz wristwatch is "rated" by measuring its timekeeping characteristics against an atomic clock's time broadcast, to determine how much time the watch gains or loses per day, and adjustments are made to the circuitry to "regulate" the timekeeping, then the corrected time will easily be accurate within 10 seconds per year. This is more than adequate to perform celestial navigation.



Assuming that you have a computer with internet-synced time and good internet, meaning around 1/100 second accuracy, why not compare the watch to the computer over the space of a week?

I have a Harley Davidson pocket watch,battery operated,but it loses approx. 8 min per day. Is there an adjustment ? I just replaced battery.


No unfortunately there is not, the problem is in the timing module where the quartz crystal is. The only option is to have it checked out to see if anything can be done.

Dear Sirs! My new (1month) Longines automatic watch hastens each day (and night) four seconds.Model L4.721.2 Is it normal or I have to turn to the laboratoty to fix the problem?! Thanks a lot Iosif


An automatic watch that gains 4 seconds in a day is good.A new Rolex is rated at 5 seconds per day so 4 seconds is well within what you can expect for your watch.As a tip when the watch is off the wrist place on its side,gravity slows the operation of the watch just a fraction.This is called positional error and may help.

How to adjust a Lord Elgin wrist watch ca. 1950 so that it keeps good time. Currently it loses about 5 min./day.


The first thing I'd recommend for a 60 year old watch is to have a watchmaker clean and oil it. Over the years the oil gets thick and gummy and slows down the watch as you're experiencing. Once it's properly cleaned and oiled the watchmaker will test and adjust it to ensure that it keeps good time. This is not a DIY job but one for a trained watchmaker with the proper tools, lubricants and experience.

How do I adjust the time and date on my Timex Expedition watch


Hi, the upper of the two watch stems is turned counter clockwise (looking at the stem) until the desired function (i.e., format, date, time, chrono, timer) appears. To set that function, pull the upper stem out and turn CW to advance & CCW to go back. Once hours & minutes are set, the stem can be pushed in upon a mark to start at zero seconds. For the day of the week, turn the upper stem CCW until date appears. Pull out the stem, to detents or positions, and this will allow the day to be adjusted.

Take care

Watch erratic. Slows suddenly between days of working well.


Sounds like a failing battery to me. Its very common for a watch to loose time when battery needs to be changed.
