    Hi Jeff, Can't seem to locate that sketch, but since I have an Indigo in my watch drawer I'll try to redraw it. I hope it is as good as the old one, if not feel free to ask questions.

    I just removed stem on an Indiglo wr10M. It looks different from the picture; but there is a thing to push down somewhat outboard of what's shown.

SOURCE: Timex Expedition Compass watch stops randomly.

Some watches have crowns that screw in after being pushed home, is this the case with yours? If it is then that could cause the problem described. (Turn crown clockwise).

I looked at one or two of the Expedition instructions (the are a lot) but couldn't find any mention of a screw in crown.

I suggest that you go to Timex.com and at the bottom of the page is "manuals/downloads" select this and the "product manuals". Put your watch type in the search box to obtain your manual.

If you are still not able to solve the problem, the I suggest you take it back to a Timex dealer to sort it out.

mcdevito75 Here, I've myself ruined a number of watches with Quartz movements trying to remove the stem, see your local jeweler and have them do it. Look for the small watch repair shops to save some money.

SOURCE: Can't get the back plate of a Timex Indiglo WR30M watch back on

To open watch case, hold back of watch up with arrow pointer on the back plate pointing to the right. There is a pry point on the upper edge where you will see a small arrow pointing. Use a small flat end screw driver to pry the watch case open. Be sure to replace the back the same way with the arrow pointing away from the setting knob.
Take a 1-1/4 inch paddle bit and drill a hole in a 1-3/4 inch wide piece of wood about 1/8 inch deep. Then take another piece of wood about 2 inches long by 3/4 inch thick by 1 inch wide to lay across the back of the case plate. Place the crystal of the watch in the drilled hole. Used a vise or clamp with the watch between the two blocks of wood to press the back on. Be careful not to over press. Works great

How to remove stem on timex indiglo WR 30M ?


Insane as it seems, apparently the Indiglo wr30m watch stem does NOT have either a set screw or a release button. No vice needed though, just good fingernails. Pull it out one click to the 'set time' position and pull it out some more and it comes out.

Hello, I just bought a Timex Acqua with Indiglo


Depending on when you bought your Timex, you shouldn"t need a battery just yet, your Timex came with a good battery. Look under the stem (winder) for a small piece of plastic that is not allowing the stem to go all the way down, remove that piece of plastic and push the stem down and your Timex will start. Or if your Timex has buttons, look for a tab of plastic on the back cover, this tab of plastic is keeping the battery from (ground) a complete circuit remove this tab of plastic to start your Timex. Changeing the battery while fairly easy, you"d need jewelers screwdrivers and of course the new battery, Best Bet, look for a small watch repair shop in your area for the battery change.

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,

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)
