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.

press and hold mode button until the digits flash (it is to set the alarm) then press again once the mode button, this time the time flash to be set, the digit that flash is changeable, the lower right button is for adjusting, the upper right button is to choose what you are going to change, while pressing the upper right button you will see all you have to change the time , the date, the day of the week. if your done with all of this. press mode button once, i hope i had been helped you.
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.

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.
These are settings for the Timex SPORTS 1440 Magnetism (5b841 -W163US) These are for the 4 button SPORTS 1440 (not 6 button) - they will also work for the 1440 SPORTS "Informer" model wrist watch - you will NOT find these instructions on the Timex website - only the 6 button which will not work on these watches is on that site!
