Timex T42351 Indiglo Malfunction

I recently bought this watch (it is about 4 months old). I took it off my hand and kept it in my pocket for an entire night in minus degrees temperatures. At first the indiglo was working fine but when I pressed it again in the early hours of the morning it was not.


I think the low temperature has something to do with it but not sure what and how to fix it (or I also don't know if it can be fixed in a watch mechanic shop).


The worst thing is i bought it second hand from ebay from USA

SOURCE: Timex Expedition, beeps very quietly and indiglo doesn't work.

To clarify... Replace the cover with the arrow on the back pointing directly at the stem. The Indiglo backlight, alarms and chimes should all work when the back cover is in this position.

I had the same problem, and could not find any answers on 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.

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

Do new James Michael pocket watches come with a battery?

Yes, if it is of the battery type

Movement Type
The movement, or inner workings, of a watch are what make up the main timekeeping mechanism. This mechanism measures the passage of time and displays the current time and other information including date, day and month. These movements can be entirely mechanical, entirely electronic or a combination of the two.
Mechanical movements, such as hand wound or automatic watches require winding in order to run. An automatic watch uses the force of gravity to constantly wind itself. Automatic watches have a greater consistency of power and therefore can be more accurate.
An electronic watch employs the use of a tiny quartz crystal that vibrates in the presence of electricity. This type of watch is powered by a battery and their time is regulated by the tiny quartz crystal. This is why most electronic watches are also called quartz watches. Solar powered watches convert energy from light into electricity which is then stored in a rechargeable battery. These watches do not need to have the battery replaced as long as they are regularly exposed to a fairly strong light source.
Kinetic powered watches use a combination of mechanical and electronic elements. Usually a weight rotates with the motion of the wearer?s arm which turns a generator to supply power. It is similar to an automatic watch except that electrical power is generated by the mechanical motion.

The 60-second counter hand shakes slightly when watch is tilted.

I don't think it is normal for hand to move when tilted. what about the warranty? Tissot must cover your watch under the warranty. Mind you I had a similar experience with Samsonite luggage and despite International guarantee, they did not honor. I have lost faith in some brand names.

How remove watch back

Hi, I have lately been going through several lazy watches. I finally bought a really nice second hand watch. The battery didn't work, so I took the older battery (a couple of months old), removed the backs on both watches. I knew one of the watches was just dead, and the battery had to be o.k. Guess my new/old watch is working really well. Sometimes we can save a bit, by using our heads, and trying to fix things ourselves. Try it, especially if one of the watches isn't working anymore, and you know that the batter should be fine. It was just fine, and I'm less broke from another repair. Good Luck!

I have a men's Timex Indiglo watch with day and day of month. It has only i stem. How can I set the date correctly? Lois

Your question brought a smile to my face as I had one also and had the same problem. It took me hours to finally figure out that the stem pulls out to set one thing and pulls out just a little more to set the next.
Hope this helps,
