Question about Timex Watches

2 Answers

I would like to know how to change the digital display on my TIMEX V CELL watch. The analogue part functions perfectly, but i cannot change the Day- Date function. I assume that the numbers, reading from left to right. are -month-date- day. The arrow blinks on d-d. The 2 buttons on the left hand side do not seem to operate. The tiny one on the rigfht hand side does change functions. I am a 78 yr old wrinkly, and even my more modern family can't figure out the combinations of it's workings. I am not timing the Olympic Games, but would like to show off what a Timex can do. Thank you all. Pete.

    In addition the day and date operate ok, still I suppose they should as itis hooked up to the battery. I have had the back off and the buttons operate the contacts, but are quite stiff. Whilst trying to find out a possible sequence, the day changed, but I have been unable to repeat this magic moment.

If the date won't change, chances are the button has some dust that's worked it's way in, and possibly a bit of oxidation has occurred with the switch. I have an old Seiko from the early 80's that has 4 buttons on it, and I had the same problem, so I took it apart and cleaned the switches with electrical contact cleaner (a spray cleaner), and got them all working again. I don't really recommend anyone doing this, as it is tedious, and so I would recommend you take it to a reputable watch repair service.
Most certainly it's bad contact with the "select" switch, and a good cleaning should get it in working order.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

I have a timex watch with both analogue and digital.... only the digital is working after a battery change. What do you recommend


Hi,

Take the battery out again and let the watch "rest" for a couple of hours without the battery. That sometimes resets the Quartz mechanism, and will allow a clean restart. Also, refer to the following info if needed.

Timex has two ways to find information about your particular watch. Some of these models only have a guide consisting of a few pages. If you don't have the manual, Try this link:

Complete Timex link site:
http://www.timex.com/info/Product_Instruction_Guides_Downloads

Now, look up the model number, or if you cannot find that, check the three-digit Module Number from the back of the watch. Click on it in the Module Table, and download a PDF of your watch setting-instructions/manual.

If you need further help, call Timex in Little Rock, Arkansas, phone 1-800-448-4639.

I hope this helps you. Thanks, Bill

I have been given a philip persio watch, (no idea which model) it has an analogue display and a digital display. the digital works perfectly but the analogue wont start any ideas


many of these watches require 2 batteries. One for the analog and one for the digital. I would contact a jewelry store to make sure they will change your batteries; since the watch was free to you it will surely be worth the price of new batteries to get it working.
Also, some models do take only one battery but if it is not at a full charge you may have the issue you described.
If not a battery issue, then there are other detailed steps to follow (the jeweler should be able to help you.)
Note: I recommend contacting an independant jeweler (non-chain and non-mall store) because most non-independants will not change batteries in watches they don't sell.
