    SOURCE: How do I adjust the

    Hi, the upper of the two watch stems is turned counter clockwise (looking at the stem) until the desired function (i.e., format, date, time, chrono, timer) appears. To set that function, pull the upper stem out and turn CW to advance & CCW to go back. Once hours & minutes are set, the stem can be pushed in upon a mark to start at zero seconds. For the day of the week, turn the upper stem CCW until date appears. Pull out the stem, to detents or positions, and this will allow the day to be adjusted.

    Take care

    SOURCE: How to set the correct date on a timex expedition

    There are several models of Timex Expedition.

    The one that has a stem and 4 buttons is set by holding in the set button until the seconds start flashing. The set button is the one that's recessed slightly. There should also be a button for the light and two other buttons. Forget about the light button for now. One of the two other buttons is liks an "advance" button, and the other is the "change" button. If you press the Advance button, the minutes will be flashing instead of the seconds. Us the other button, the Change button, to change the minutes until they are correct. Press Advance again and the hours will start flashing, and press Change to change them. Pressing Advance again will get you to the date, and you use the Change button to change the day and date the same way as you did with the hours and minutes. If you mess up, you can keep hitting Advance until you get back to where you were, and then use the Change button again until it's correct. Once the time and date are set, press Set again to get back to Normal timekeeping mode, and you're done.
    If this is the Expedition watch with two stems instead of buttons, you have to use the bottom stem to set the hands, and the top stem sets everything else. Rotate the top stem until the word TIME appears and the time shows in the display. Pull that stem out ONE click to change the hours, then rotate it until the number changes. Then, pull it out more for a SECOND click, and change the minutes by rotating the stem. When done, press the stem all the way back down. The date is basically the same, rotate the top stem until DATE appears, then pull out ONE click and rotate for the month, then pull the stem out a little further for the SECOND click and rotate to change the day. Press back down to save it if you have any further questions message me back and please rememeber to rank how this opinion has helped it allows me to help others in similar situations thanks rick

    How can I change the day on the watch (timex model T2E581). I am able to change the date and time ok, but not the day. Thanks for the help.

    When you pull the stem out all the way (two clicks) it should set the time. Pulling the stem out one click you noticed sets the date, you turn it one way for the date and in the same postion you turn it the other way for the day. For some reason on some watches the day will stick, if that still happens you will need to turn the hands around and around until you get to the right day, then keeping in mind the 12 hour interval you are in... set the date and time. If the day still does not change then you need to return the watch if its new or send it to timex! Caution: when sending a watch to Timex sometimes they send back a different watch without asking so if its sentimental do NOT send it to Timex!! Hope this helps! have a great day!

    Where do I find a user manual for a Timex Expedition (H2Y518)? I had Timex install a new battery and although the date 3-17 is correct, the day of the week is SUN. I have tried changing the date for over...

    You are very observant! Timex watches don't have a way to adjust the day.
    However, if you turn the hands clockwise you will see the day advance.
    So, heres the secret, follow exactly:
    1. Turn the hands until the day of the week shows the day before. If today is Wednesday then turn the hands until the watch shows Tuesday
    2 Adjust the date to the day before. If today is the 17th then adjust it to the 16th
    3. Now pull the crown all the out and and advance the hands until the date changes to the correct date, 17 in this example. This happens at midnight. Continue the movement in a clockwise direction for a few more hours and you should see the day change to the correct day.
    4. Now continue to move in a clockwise direction until you have the current time. Remember that your date/day changed at midnight so if the current time is after lunch(noon) you must continue past noon to get to the correct time. If you don't do this correctly your date will change every day at noon instead of midnight.
    If you don't succeed the first time, try, try again! Good luck, Michael, Watchmaker to the Stars!

    If you have the crown in the first click position (date set position) the date set wheel is most likely damaged. Otherwise, if it does not change in 24 hours, it is the date wheel itself that is damaged.

    This happens in all watches over time, as even quartz watches must technically be serviced every 3-5 years. 90% of manufacturers quote this as the standard service rate for quartz and mechanical watches.

    If this watch has sentimental value, and you will want to contact a local Certified Master Horologist or Certified Quartz Technician about replacing the movement. Replacing Timex movements is generally more expensive than purchasing a new watch.

    If the watch is still in warranty, you may consider contacting Timex about replacing the watch free of charge at: [email protected]

    How do you set the day and month?

    Mcdevito75 here, The stem on your Timex shou;ld have two (2) positions, slip a finger nail just under the crown and gently lift to the first position, it may take a little practice to get but you will. In this first position you"ll see by turning the crown one way you can change the date (number) and turning in the other direction you can change the month or day, if so, set the day and date to one (1) day before the day and date you want. Push the stem back in and lift the stem all the way to set the time of day, now cycle thru the watches 24 hours to set the day and date you want. Your Timex is now set and will change at the proper time of around midnite. If your Timex has the month and day you may have to cycle the 24 hours to reach the correct month other than that these instructions should help.

    Date and time on my new watch do not change

    mcdevito75 here, Sounds like part of the mechanism has broken in your Timex watch, and, if so too repair it may cost twice a new Timex watch, chances are this is why watch shops have told you to return the watch to Timex, and without a warrantee, even timex will charge for the repair. Ask the watch repair shop straight out if it pays to repair your watch, chances are no. Also you can try to contact Timex online at Timex or by phone.

    Setting day and date on timex watch

    For the analog Timex Indiglo with both day and date (CR 2016 Cell on back) and only the single crown available you must first pull out the stem and turn through the hours 24 at a time to get to the correct day(MON,TUES,etc.). Then you can pull the stem out only half way and set the date (1,2,3,etc.). Be careful to attend to the AM/PM time as you turn the stem for the day. Go too far and the day will change at noon and you have to wind through seven more 24 hours to correct it.
