Unfortunately there is NOTHING you can do. As Timex is one of the cheapest watch brands worldwide, they are not using the best materials for the cases and straps. Take your watch with you to the nearest jewellers shop and they will fit any strap you like.

Hi. How do i set date on a mans black leather band, large face indiglo watch. I tried to move the hands clockwise for a long time and that didnt do it. Model T2H281


Hi Barbara, I have an easy fix for you. Pull the winding knob half way out and then you can twist it to set the desired date. Here is a website for you with instructions if you need. Just copy and paste the following into your Windows search engine box .....http://besttimexeasyreaderwatch.blogspot.com/2012/01/timex-men-t2h281-easy-reader-black.html

Can't turn off the alarm on a timex Expedition Watch


buy a Casio wrist watch at KMart for around $17.00. They last five years, then the
band breaks and you buy a new watch. I timed the traffic signal system of our city for 20 years from a Casio wrist watch. Now in retirement, I have a Time Expedition which has several alarms which I do not need, and can't turn off. We change the time twice annually, so having alarms and chimes go off without warning ca bve a nuisance.I found some instructions on a website which shows how to turn the alarms off.

Purchase watchbands for the timex 1440 sport


My son's watch (WR 50M) broke... so I have a strap, if you'd like it.
He loved this watch and it would cost about the price of a new one to repair, so I'm buying him a new one. He's had the same watch for years... bless, huh?
If you anywhere I can purchase another WR 50M - 1440 Timex, I'd be most grateful.

What I would love is for an EXPERT to solve a very small problem that exist with every Lap - Ironman style watch I have ever owned over the past 20 years. There is no exception!!! After about 1 to 1-1/2...


This is a common problem with all watches with rubber or leather straps, not just with Ironman. In fact, there isn't anything our experts can do, as the responsibility is entirely on watch band producers. We just can hope that when the nano technologies will develop to the higher level, there will be a possibility to produce brand new materials yet unknown to human. These materials will have no wear and tear at all and everyone will be happy with forever lasting bands, shoes, e.t.c. For a while we can only wait. By the way - if you will buy Casio, it will make no difference, as all watch straps are made by using same technologies and chemical formulae. One of my friends went very upset for the same reason as you, so, I did find a solution for him using piece of scrapped copper pipe. This is how you do that: Measure that small loop of your watch band and find or buy the piece of copper pipe of same size. Cut off 1cm piece of the pipe and file off any imperfections, then polish it if needed. Get an old leather belt, fold it into half and put the copper ring in between, then flatten it with hammer. Do it step by step, always checking that there is enough space for band and band end to go through the newly formed copper loop. When flattened enough, spray the loop with band matching paint and leave to dry. Respray if necessary. Now you are done and this loop will last very long time.
Rate me, plz.

Replacement band for nike watch wa0018 oregon alt


I wear the smaller, womens' version of the Nike Oregon. Nice watch. I was attracted to it by the replaceable battery feature, but found out the strap goes long before the battery and the joy of ownership goes out the window with the price of Nike wrist-band replacement. I held onto my broken banded watch for awhile, and came up with a solution. First, don't try removing the screws that secure the watch-band pins. Not sure how they work, but I tried several times without luck. Even had a jeweler look at it without success.

I went to Kohl's and purchased a black velcro Timex replacement band for $8. Again this is the for the smaller version of the Oregon. The width of the timex band in 3/4". It includes a elastic band to secure the watch. This elastic band runs under the back of the watch and over the two pins. It is secured to a faux leather tab (with emblems), which is in turn attached to the velco band. Using a razor knife, I detached the faux leather pad from the velcro band and ran it under the watch pins, then reattached it with a touch of Gorilla glue. Be careful to wipe off any excess as Gorilla glue expands as it dries. Finally I blacked out the Timex advertising with a black felt permanent marker.

No reason to think this wouldn't work on the larger, mens' version of the same watch.
