SOURCE: watch battery replacement
I have a Timex Expedition Indigo with a metal case. Not sure of the exact model number but on the back there an M6 below Expedition. Anyway, I had the same problem of snapping the back back on. I found a "battery" website that had some suggestions that should be typical of any snap back case watch. http://www.online-batteries.co.uk/whichbattery.shtml specifically they said that when you try to press the back on it must be flat (not one edge down as I had been trying) Put the watch face down on a non scratch surface and press with both thumbs evenly. If that doesn't work a press will be needed. If you have a vice a couple of blocks of wood to distribute the load on the front and back may work, otherwise take it to a jeweler with the proper equipment. The thumb routine didn't work for me. I have a vice but figured many wouldn't so I tried something else first. I put the watch face down on a piece of wood. I found a small 2" long scrap of wood (3/4" x 1.5" approx) that spanned the back. I centered the back (aligned properly) placed the block of wood squarely and centered across the back and tapped the end of the block with a hammer. First try didn't work, second one did. I used a rubber mallet as the hammer but a regular hammer or other heavy object would work. The trick, I think, is to get everything lined up and square so the blow is centered and even. Also, I'd suggest cleaning the back and the groove in the case and be sure the rubber gasket is properly positioned. This will give you the best chance of retaining the waterproofing. And remember to check that the watch is running before you do this. Some need to be reset (usually with a very small screwdriver or pin) after replacing the battery. There should be a small hole with some printing next to it. You may need a magnifying glass to see/read it. Good Luck, Richard

I bought this for my son and he has been living with it for 4 months, and hour and ten min. off ! I just want to set the time, and I'm at the top of the world, no radio shack down the road. Turn right at the polar bear.

SOURCE: have timex watch had battery
If you had the battery replaced, I'm guessing that the watch wasn't working when you brought it in for a new battery. It may not have needed a new battery. You might need a new watch. I've never heard of anyone needing a clamp for a Timex digital watch. In my experience, they use phillips screws to hold the back to the case. I have a case press for snap-on backs, but that's still unusual for a Timex unless it has a BIG case. I think your watch was shot before you replaced the battery.

I received an email from Timex customer tech support to take it to a jewler which pretty much means buy a new one. Not worth the cost of the battery and repair. I have the tools so I might as well try it myself. Either way, I will either fix it or buy another watch.

This watch will have what is called and "AC" or All clear to reset it. There should be a white sticker with very small print on the back lid that will walk you through doing this procedure. It typically involves pressing down a tiny lever onto a small metal pad that will reset the watch.
