I had the same problem and tried everything. Here was my solution. Use a double-sided 2" rubber mallet. (Below is a photo of a similiar mallet.)

  1. Place the watch, crystal side down, on a vinyl padded notebook.
  2. Place one of the rubber mallet heads on the watch back.
  3. With all your force, push down on the other end of the mallet's head. (Don't hammer it!)
  4. Voila, you should hear a slight pop and the back will again be secure on the watch

The rubber mallet distributes the weight across the diameter of the watch back and it gives you more leverage when you push down on it. It worked great for me! Good luck!

Hi. How do i set date on a mans black leather band, large face indiglo watch. I tried to move the hands clockwise for a long time and that didnt do it. Model T2H281


Hi Barbara, I have an easy fix for you. Pull the winding knob half way out and then you can twist it to set the desired date. Here is a website for you with instructions if you need. Just copy and paste the following into your Windows search engine box .....http://besttimexeasyreaderwatch.blogspot.com/2012/01/timex-men-t2h281-easy-reader-black.html

I need to change the date


Changing the date for the FT500WVB watch is easy. Just pull out the stem of the watch to its first stop. Then turn the stem counter clockwise a couple of twists and the displayed date will increment (that is increase) by one day and you will hear a little click. Keep twisting the stem counterclockwise and the date will increase by one each time with a little click. Stop when you reach the correct date and push the stem back in to its fully seated rest position. Note- be careful not to change the date when the watch displays a time between 9pm and 1 am as setting the date in this time range may cause the watch to increment the date at noon rather than midnight.

Note also that if you want to set the time you just pull out the stem to its second stop position and twist the stem to advance the position of the hands of the watch. Then when the time is set, push the stem back in to its lowest rest position. So remember- first stem stop sets the date and second stem stop sets the time. That's it.

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!

How to set the date and time on timex t20471


There are two crown positions on this timepiece. The furthest out, or second position, sets the analog time hands. The first crown position in one direction sets the day, and in the other sets the date. To access the first crown position, pull the crown out very slowly until you feel a "click" or pull the crown out all the way and push it in slowly until you feel a "click" with your fingers.

To set the watch:

1) Pull the crown to the second position and bring the hour and minute hand to the 12:00 position, if it switches the day and date after moving past, you are then in AM time.

2) Set the time appropriately to AM/PM. Use http://www.time.gov/ for the most accurate time.

3) Put the crown in the first click position. Set the Date and Day appropriately, having determined the AM/PM time setting. This will ensure that the day/date change at 12:00 midnight instead of 12:00 noon.

How do I re-wind the date on my Timex Easy Reader Woman's Watch?


mcdevito75 here, The stem (crown) on your timex shou;d have 2 positions, this allows you to set the date without haveing to turn the hands around so many times. Place a fingernail just under the crown (winder knob) and lift to it"s first position, it may take some practice so if you don"t get it the first time keep trying, Once you lift the crown to it:"s first position you shoulsd be able to set the date, set the date a day before the date you need, Now, push the stem back in all the way, now pull out the stem and set the date and time you want, you"ll have to go around the 24 hours once to set the correct date and time. Hope this helps. If you can"t do this adjustment, see a small watch repair shop in your area.
