Yes, your watch is battery driven. The best way is to find your nearest watchmakers shop and ask for replacement. If you want to do it yourself, then open the watch caseback, release the battery and memorise all the writings on battery. You have to buy exactly the same one and replace it.

Hi please make sure that the knob is pulled all the way out. If it is you need to take it to a watchmaker.

How do I change time and date on timex indiglo

  • How to Set Dial Indiglo Watches

    • 1Pinch the winding knob on the right side of the watch between your thumb and forefinger.

    • 2 Pull the knob out from the watch slowly until it clicks into the first position.

    • 3Turn the knob to move the hour and minute hand to set the time. Move the knob clockwise to move the settings forward and counterclockwise to move them backwards.

    • 4 Pull the knob out further until it clicks into the second position. In the second position (the one furthest from the face), turn the knob to set the calendar, if your Indiglo has one. Turn the knob clockwise to move the settings forward and counterclockwise to move them backward. Push the knob back in to the watch face when you are done.
    How to Set Digital Indigo Watches

    • 1 Press the button on the lower right side of your Indiglo watch to unlock the mode function of the watch.

    • 2 Press the button on the lower left side to move through the modes. Each time you are in a mode, the digital display will flash. For example, when the time display begins to flash, you are in the correct mode to set the time.

    • 3 Change the time (or date) by pressing the button on the upper right side to advance the numbers or the button on the left side to move the numbers down. When you do this, you will be changing the first set of numbers (the hour or month, for instance); to change the minutes, press the button on the right side of the face until the second set of numbers is flashing and begin the process again.

    • 4 Press the button on the lower left side of the watch to save your settings. The button on the upper left side of the watch is not used in this process--it is the switch to turn on your Indiglo light.

    I've lost the owner's instructions and need directions for setting the alarm.

  • Unscrew the crown (the main knob on the center right side of the watch casing), wait until the second hand is at the 12 o'clock position, and pull the crown knob up so that it clicks once.
  • 2 Press the button below the crown knob repeatedly until the hands of the alarm dial point to the time within the next 12 hours that you want the alarm to ring. Pressing the button once will move the alarm one minute forward. Pressing and holding the button will move the alarm forward quickly.
  • 3 Pull the crown knob one click further out and turn to adjust the main hands to the correct time, to take into account the time you took to set the alarm.
  • 4 Push the crown knob two clicks back into its normal position, and screw it into place until it locks.

    Need instructions on National Geographic Men's watch #NG010GYSK

    go to Buliva web site and look for the chorograph 561/598
    1. Hours, minutes, seconds and date display.
    2. 60 minute Chronograph (CHRONO) with minutes and
    seconds display.
    3. 24 hour hand, permanently synchronized with the normal
    12 hour hand.
    1. Pull the crown out to position “3” (See diagram). If the crown has
    a “screw-down” lock, then unscrew the crown lock first by turning
    the crown toward you, then pull it to position “3”. Do not forget to
    screw the crown back “IN” after all setting is completed.
    2. Turn the crown towards you (hands moves clockwise) until the
    date changes at approximately midnight.
    3. Continue turning the hour and minute hands to the correct time.
    If it is afternoon you must go past 12 o’clock again (noon) to set
    the correct time.
    4. When the correct time is set,push crown back to position “1”.
    1. Pull crown to position “2”(See proceeding diagram).The watch
    will continue to run.
    2. Turn the crown away from you until the correct date appears.
    3. Once the date is set, push the crown back to position “1”.
    Note: Do NOT set the date between the hours of 8:00 PM and
    3:00 AM.This would not damage the watch,but the date may need
    to be reset later.
    If the chrongraph second hand is not positioned at the proper
    starting position (12 o’clock or “zero” position), use the below
    procedure.It does not need to be repeated unless the watch
    receives an impact sufficient to move the hand out of position, or
    the Battery has been changed.
    1. Pull crown out to position “3”.
    2. Push button “A” to move the Chrono Second hand (long hand) to
    the “0” or 12 o’clock position. Each button push will move the
    hand one step – BUT holding the button down will advance the
    hand rapidly.
    3. Push crown back to position “1”.
    The maximum chrono reading is 60 minutes, However the
    chrono will continue running once 60 minutes has passed. The
    resulting one hour periods may be added together mentally to keep
    track of longer periods.
    For example – If you know that approximately one hour has
    passed since you started the chronograph, and the chrono reads
    25 minutes, then you know that the chrono has been running 60
    minutes plus 25 minutes, which is one hour and 25 minutes.
    1. Push Button “A” to start the chronograph. Push button “A” again
    to stop the chronograph.
    2. Push button “B” to return the two chronograph hands to the
    “Zero” or starting point.
    3. The Chronograph can be stopped and started again
    (Button “A”), repeatedly, to “ADD” times together.

    Rolex 1992 daytona watch

    There should be 3 knobs on the right side of your watch. Unscrew the middle knob with the crown on it until it pops out. After it springs out, it will be in winding mode. You want to gently pull it out past this point, it will click into place and you will be able to set the time by turning the knob. After time is set just push the middle knob back in and turn clockwise unitl it is tight.

    I hope this has been helpful,

    1) un-screw the pin by turning it towards you, until the spring pops it out. 2) pull the pin out to the next notch 3) turn the pin towards you and watch the date change (if the minute hand is moving when you turn the pin, you pulled out too far).

    Aquaswiss trax watch


    For clarity:
    There are three adjustment knobs on the right side of the watch. Two are smaller than the main time adjustment knob. For clarification I will label:

    Top knob: #1
    Middle knob: #2
    Bottom knob: #3

    To adjust the stopwatch feature:

    1. Turn #2 counter-clockwise until it pops out to its adjusting position.

    2. Pull #2 towards the right until you feel the first click. (There are two click positions).

    3. Simultaneously hold both #1 and #3 down until you see the 1/16 hand and the 30 minute hand rotate automatically to a fixed position.

    Now you are ready to calibrate the stopwatch feature.

    4. Click mulitiple times on #3 and you will see the 30 min. had move clock wise incrementally with every click. Keep clicking on #3 until the 30 min. hand reaches its apex (to its 12:00 position).

    5. Now click multiple times on #1 and you will see the 1/16th hand move in very small increments clockwise. You may be bold and try to hold down #1 and let it swing as close as possible to the 12:00 position and then multiple click #1 to get it precisely to its apex.

    You are almost done.

    6. Now simultaneously hold #1 and #3 until you see both the 1/16th second hand and the 30 minute hands auto-rotate clockwise to their respective 12:00 positions.

    Fantastic! However, now you have to return the watch back to its original locked position. This is where it could get a little tricky.

    7. Make sure the time is correct. Using #2 fully extended to its 2nd click position you may adjust the time.

    8. Using #2 extended to its 1st click position you may adjust the date. (Here's the trick, do not set the date for today's date. Rather, set it for the day before or in some cases, 2 days before. I will explain in a moment).

    9. Now, depress #2 fully back towards the main body of the watch as best as possible and while holding down #2 turn it clockwise until it locks into position.

    During this operation you may notice that the date will go forward until the watch locks into position, ergo, I had to make sure the date was for the day before...and it some cases, 2 days before.

    Your watch is ready to use.

    The stopwatch feature for this analog watch works very similarly to that of an actual stopwatch.

    Press and hold #1 once to stop the 1/16 hand. Press and hold #3 to have both the 1/16th second hand and the 30 minute hands return to their 12:00 positions. Now you are ready to race!

    Press #1 to start the stopwatch. Press #1 to stop the stopwatch. Press #3 to return the hands back to their respective positions. You may even press #3 after you press #1 to get a second reading but I will let you figure that out for yourself.

    Hope this was helpful!
