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 ended up putting the watch between two layers of a shop rag and tightened it in my garage vise. First try didn't work so the second try I turned the vise another /14 turn. Voilla! Stupid watch!!

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

Hope this tip helps

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


Hi,
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,

Indiglo has died on over 10 of my Timex watches


If they have replaced that many watches in that short period, I'm going to say that it isn't the watch.

Timex watches are equipped with some of the largest and strongest batteries in the industry and have some of the best reserve potentials. Have you ever replaced a battery and did it make a difference?

Do you use a magnetic bracelet or work around strong magnetic fields - either of which can deplete a battery - generally in about four months? If so, put the bracelet and watch on opposite wrists. This is usually not a problem with a digital watch. I suspect it's because the magnet makes the analog movement work harder and depletes the battery faster.

And some people just can't wear a certain watch. My mother is one of them. There is something electrical or magnetic about my mother that keeps her from wearing a mechanical watch. When I was a kid, the only watch she could wear was a green plastic Davy Crockett watch.

And 50 years ago, my left handed brother gave me his hand-me-down Timex when it quit working for him. I put it on my left wrist and got several more years of wear out of the watch. I think he wore out the movement on one side wearing it on his right wrist and I wore out the jewels on the other side wearing it on my left wrist.

Timex indiglo. Indiglo feature died.


The indiglo technology is time limited (it dims over the years with use) and cannot be repaired - have you had the watch a long time? if so, I'm afraid it's time to get a new one. Sorry!
