Question about Timex 40131 Wristwatch

Setting perpetual calendar

I have a timex perpetual calendar wrist watch with day (MON TUE WED etc) and date (1 2 3 4 ... 10 11 etc) showing.  Changing my watch for day light savings, I somehow got the date going, and am now having a hard time getting the date to stop on the right number, as it keeps spinning and then randomly stops.  The day does not turn.  
Please, any help?
Thanks,
Dateless in Vancouver

    Same problem. When you move the date it then goes back once you push the winder in. I tried advancing the time by 48 hours - now I have the right date but wrong day!

    Same problem here - is there any guides that can teach us to do it on our own rather than having to send back the watch?...

Hi isengard03,

Setting the day on your Timex analog watch is a simple process. Please follow the steps below.

Multi-Function Models

1. Pull the crown on the side of the watch case all the way out. This will be position "C," with position "A" having the crown pushed all the way in and position "B" being pulled out halfway.

2. Turn the crown clockwise until the correct day appears on the small face displaying the day.

3. Press the crown all the way in, to position "A."

Chronograph Models

1. Pull out the crown on the side of the case to position "B." This is halfway out. You will feel a slight click when the crown is in position "B."

2. Turn the crown clockwise until the watch face shows the correct day.

3. Push the crown all the way into position "A" to complete the process.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

I cannot set the calendar for this watch...can anyone help me?


mcdevito75 here, Your watch (Timex) may have a 2 position stem. Push the stem (winder) all the way in, NOW just lift the stem a little to it:s first position, this should allow the date, (number ) to change, change that number to the date before the date you want, NOW pull the stem out to set the hands, rotate the hands to set proper date and time.

How do i adjust the date on my classic watch?? pull the pin and rotate cw or ccw no changes.i have an indigo classic watch. does date need to be adjusted every 30 day months? thanks


You have to adjust the date every February (28 or 29 days), April, June, September and November (each 30 days). Self adjusting calendars are called Perpetual Calendars and this feature is quite expensive, especially in mechanical watches. Your watch has calendar ring with 31 days printed on and the simple calendar mechanism which is changing dates from 1 to 31 inclusive,day after day, so, when the 30-day month is ending and there is no 31st date to follow, your calendar is showing 31st anyway,instead of 1st of the next month. This is when you have to adjust date. Now about the date adjusting. If you pull out crown gently, you will notice there are two clicks (positions), not just one. So the first click, when crown is not pulled out fully, is exactly for day/date adjustment. If you pull the crown further out, watch is in hand adjustment mode. Try it carefully and you will find out the right position.

Day and date not synchronized with actual day and date


The watch does not have a "perpetual" clock so it does not know what month it is in. It will treat every month as a 31 day month, so you will have to re-set the date anytime a month is not 31 days.

If you appreciate me answering this for you then please rank this solution as "fixya" or at least "helpful" as what I have said will solve your problem. :-)

Setting day and date on timex watch


Pull the stem out part of the way not all of the way. This will allow you to change the date quickly without the day moving.
