Question about Timex 27191 Wristwatch

2 Answers

I have a ladies timex indiglo watch that I was able to get the back off and replace the battery but now I can NOT get the back on again. It doesnt seem to have any grooves on it. It seems as if it would just snap back on but I can't seem to either push hard enough OR that is not the way to get it back on. Please help, I want to wear this watch.

I have an old Timberland Indiglo watch in which I had the same problem. I folded up a paper towel for padding and I used two sets of pliers, one to hold one side of the watch while I used the other set of pliers to snap the back cover closed. It took two seconds to do.

Ok I had an Indiglo watch . Changed the battery and no matter how hard I tried ,I could not apply pressure sufficient enough to get the back to click.Nothing worked! Finally, I had another watch that I was in the process of changing the battery in as well. I noticed the back of this watch was almost the exact same size as the Indiglo, so I put the other watch back against the Indiglo's back while it was in place , I stepped on it over the carpeting. With very little effort, I heard it immediately snap into place. I'm thinking any hard ring that can apply pressure evenly around the outer circle will do the same thing, but another watch back was the perfect size for the job.

The light in my watch stopped working. How do I get it fixed? It is a Timex Indiglo(ladies) I don't have any other info.


Most watches of this type have 2 batteries - 1 for the light and 1 for timekeeping. If you use the light a lot, you may have flattened the battery but the watch keeps going because it's running on the other battery. Take it to your local jewellers/watchmakers/watch repair shop and get them to test the battery and replace if flat. If the battery isn't flat and the light doesn't work then you have a faulty watch - if it's still under guarantee fine, if not buy yourself another watch if you can't put up with the fault.

Display disappears when Indiglo is pressed


That means your watch has two batteries - one for the movement and another one for INDIGLO. It may have just one battery, but in this case INDIGLO is taking up too much power. Replace the battery and you will be sorted. Rate me, plz.

Indiglo does not work after changing battery


On a Timex a lot of times the back has to be on for everything to work. But I am going to assume the back is on. The indiglo could just be out. Timex repairs their watches for little or no cost. You would have to mail it to them for repair as they do not release parts to anyone. I believe their number is 1-800 for time

Timex indiglo. Indiglo feature died.


The indiglo technology is time limited (it dims over the years with use) and cannot be repaired - have you had the watch a long time? if so, I'm afraid it's time to get a new one. Sorry!

THE INDIGLO DOES NOT COME ON WHEN THE BUTTON IS PUSHED. THE WATCH CONTINUES TO RUN HOWEVER. THE WATCH WAS A GIFT THAT HAD NO ENCLOSED WARRANTY FOR ME TO FILL OUT/MAIL IN. WHAT CAN YOU DO FOR ME?


Many of Timex watches has two separate batteries- one for watch and another for indiglo feature. It looks like you have to replace indiglo battery. Nearest watchmaker will do that for you.
