Question about Timex 1440 Nylon watch
The buttons on my watch don't seem to correspond to any instructions which I can find. I have a Mode, Start/Stop, Adjust and Indiglow buttons. All I want to do is set the right time. Should it be this hard?
Solution #2 by Guest, posted on May 13, 2008 solved my problem. OUTSTANDING solution #2!
1. Hold in the MODE button until the alarm time appears.
2. VERY IMPORTANT - release and TAP the MODE button AGAIN, and the time should appear with the seconds flashing.
3. Use StART/Stop to choose among seconds, hours, and minutes, and
4. Use ADJUST to increase the selected number
5. Press MODE to put the thing back in regular operational mode.
After several attempts with other directions over the last four months, these 5 steps WORKED.

Setting the Timex 1440 Sports WR50MT5G891:

You may also want to try holding the LAP/RST button until you see the digital read-out say "SET". From there, you can use the mode button to alternate through different settings and you use the ST./STOP button to change the settings. From my experience different products have different ways to be set and Timex does a poor job of making that known, if none of these solutions work for you, you might also try different things, just takes some playing and a little bit of time.

HOW do I change my wr50m watch from army time to regular time??????

I have just bought mine. Maybe this will help. Keep pressing the Indiglo button for about 3 seconds, then you will see the numbers blinking. Set the numbers using the Start/Stop button, go to the next set of number by using the Split/Reset button. And after you're happy with the setting, click the Indiglo button again, and you're done.

Okay. I was looking for a solution to this problem as well. My 1440 Sports is a few years old now, and, of course, I don't have the manual. Anyway, here's what to do: Hold in the Mode button until the alarm time appears. Tap the Mode button again, and the time should appear with the seconds flashing. Use St/Stop to choose among seconds, hours, and minutes, and use Lap/Reset to increase the selected number. Use Mode to put the thing back in regular operational mode.

I have the same problem. My buttons are Mode, Start/Stop, Set and Indiglow. The pictures on the directions that came with the watch have the buttons in different positions. In addition my buttons don't do what the direction buttons say they will do. No button combination I've found will change the time. HELP - otherwise I'm returning it to the store.
