If it is an older battery powered Indiglo, try pulling the stem out about half-way, then turn the time-set knob toward you (counter-clockwise if you were looking at it from the side). They can be fussy, so you will probably have to play with it until you get the gears aligned so that you change just the date. Push the stem back in when you are done.

Your watch sounds like a mechanical type (old).

Older watches rely on the hour hand passing 12 to re-set the date.

Wind your watch until the date changes and then turn the hands backwards passed 12 and then forwards again to advance the date again. How far you need to wind it passed 12 (in both directions) is something that you will have to find out by experiment.


Have patience!

How to set day of week and date on men's Timex Indiglo easy reader analog wristwatch


The watch should have only one stem on the side, if this is so, you pull the stem all the way out two clicks to set time, but you pull it out only one click to set day and date, at one click you turn one way for date and other way for date, to use indiglo you push stem in. If your watch has more than one stem please notify me. I hope this helps!

I have a men's Timex Indiglo watch with day and day of month. It has only i stem. How can I set the date correctly? Lois


Hi,
Your question brought a smile to my face as I had one also and had the same problem. It took me hours to finally figure out that the stem pulls out to set one thing and pulls out just a little more to set the next.
Hope this helps,

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.

Changing the DAY on this analog watch.


On some analog Timex watches with a day/date window there are only two "pull-out" positions on the stem, one for changing the date and one for the time. To change the day you need to pull the stem all the way out and crank the hands through 24 hour periods until you get the day correct. Be sure that you have the correct AM/PM setting (if you are setting the watch after noon you need to advance the hands another 12 hours so that the day changes at midnight)
