Question about Timex 5B841 Wristwatch

1 Answer

Adjusting date, time, anything...

I really had my hopes up when I saw the picture - which is my watch - and the supposed link that led to the instruction manual. However, the manual that is linked isn't for my watch. Same picture - looks like the same watch...butthe manual shows a watch with six buttons, not four. I thought I could ignore the two middle ones. But this didn't work at all. Everytime I hold down adjust, my watch just says 16:00. It won't start flashing. Very frustrating.

Can't figure out how to set the ana part of the watch

You should have a "mode" button which steps you through the setting options on your watch.

When you press this you can adjust various things (time, date, location etc.) and it should also include an option to adjust the hands.

(On my Casio, the setting for this is "HS", short for hand setting I suppose, and then I pressed the 2 O'clock button to advance the time or the 4 O'clock button to ****** it; )

I would expect your watch to have the same functions, so you should be able to find out which abbreviation is the one that is for adjusting the hands of the analogue section.

Keep trying and have patience!

Date dial is not moving when adjusting. No problem when you turn the dial in full turn to adjust the date.

The date dial is turn by two mechanisms. By turning the crown one set of wheels are engaged to change the date but when the watch is running or the time is being set another set of wheels is used to change the date.

Because it will not change on it's own when the watch is keeping time the wheel that is supposed to turn the date needs to be replaced.

A qualified watchmaker can do this for you.

Hope this helps.

Adjusting band on Invicta 4901

I was having the same problem with mine. Even though the band has arrows, those really are screws in the band. Two really small screwdrivers and you can take out the unneeded links. They are in there really tight, so expect some resistance until they pop loose, after that its easy.
