Mcdevito75, Some watches are waterproof, shockproof, and so on. But, no watch is air proof, Believe it or not air is always in your watch and---all air contains water, hot air, cold air, Heat up air and you seperate the water, the air in your watch gets hot on your wrist then cools when you go outside or when you take off the watch. The condensation you see is the tempersture change of the air in your Timex, Believe it or not. It really can"t be stopped, If you can or have a small watch repir shop remove the back and put in another seal around the back cover this should help. Try to keep your watch at a constant temp.

Hello. I own a 40 to 50 year old "Timex Electronic" watch. There is a number date at the 3 o'clock position. I see no other identifying info on the outside. I don't have a battery for it. How


Hello,

What is the exact model of the watch. I have several Timex Electronic watches that might fit your description. If you pop the caseback do you see the old battery inside? Most batteries would have a reference like: CR2016.

I returned a 3month old timex watch through JC Penney upon their recommendation since it had stopped working and they couldn't fix it. Unfortunately, I did not send in the warranty but agreed to pay...


maybe your watch is in the line up to be repaired, all you can do now is to get their contact nubers,so that you can call them for the status of your watch.

I changed the battery in my timex expedition watch, and now the alarm doesn't sound. The watch is set for Beep ON, but it never beeps.


Same thing happened to me, took watch to watch shop, they changed the battery and the chimes stopped working. Simple fix, the faceplate was put back on wrong. Unscrew the face plate and turn it upside down (or right side up depending on your POV) the circle on the inside of the faceplate will line up with the springs inside the watch and the chimes will start working again. If you have a pair of eyeglasses screw drivers, like I did, you can do this yourself.

There is no display on the watch at all, like the battery is dead but it is less than a year old. Is there some combination of buttons to push?


mcdevito75 here, Sorry, but a watch battery that is less than 1 year old can still be weak or dead, You have to try a new battery first. Battery could have gotton loose, or have dirty contacts. Look for a small watch repair shop in your area. It"s possible you shut the watch off also, Press and hold the MODE button 2-3 seconds see if the display comes back.

I can't get the cover to close on a timex watch.


I used to work with jewelry. !!BEWARE!!
This method is for face crystals that are completely FLAT! Any convex crystal will shatter without proper tools!!!
Any method of putting the watch cover back with the watch remotely near water/moisture is a mistake. The watch will rust sooner or later.
So if you don't want to pay a jeweler five dollars to put it back on, this is what I did to my sister's watch cover when I could not snap it back.
I took my cushy 1/4 inch mousepad to a vise. You may not have a vise. If you don't, stop reading now and take the watch to a jeweler --one who replaces batteries.
Inside the vise jaws, I used a 5 inch square piece of wood, then my cushy mousepad, then the watch facing the pad, then the back in the right place for restoring.
!!!!NOTE: Not having the back in the right place will smash the stem and damage can/will result!!!
To push the back on, I picked a 12 point socket out of my socket set that was the same DIAMETER as the watch back and placed it CENTERED behind the back.
Recapping, inside vise:
  • small board
  • cushy mousepad (to avoid scarring and crystal breakage
  • watch crystal facing mousepad
  • watch back in correct position
  • ratchet socket the same diameter as watch back centered behind cover
Slowly I positioned all these items with minimal pressure. Then when I was sure that I was ready (and prepared to hear the crystal break) I put as little pressure closing the vise that I could. The I heard a snap, and to my relief, it was the back going in!

I DO NOT RECOMMEND THAT YOU DO WHAT I DID. People with broken watch crystals become very IRATE when "all it needed was a battery"!

A screw clamp would also give adequate pressure. Any unsupported direct pressure over the crystal will shatter it!

Hope this helped.
Good luck!!!!
