You need to open your watch and let the condinsation out. Does your watch have screws in the back? Alot of times when you have the battery changed (in plastic watches) it is hard to tighten down the back properly because many people strip the tap because the screw is metal and the casing is plastic. Either way open the watch, let it dry out for at least 45-1 hour ,and if you can find some silicon ( a heavy grease) put that around the inside back seal, and close as good as you can. If this is not a plastic watch please let me know so I can assist you further.

Need to set just the time on a timex WR100M mens watch


SETTING
  1. First, find the regular time mode by pressing the MODE button until the time (with the date at the top) shows.
  2. Press & hold the SET button until the word ENTER disappears and is replaced by the word TIME. Release that button. You'll notice that at the top of the display, the words SET T1 or SET - T2. This is where you select between setting the 1st time zone or the 2nd time zone. Select between T1 or T2 by pressing the RECALL button or the STOP/RESET button.
  3. Press either the MODE or the START/SPLIT button. You'll notice that whatever is blinking is what you can change. You can make the changes by pressing either the RECALL or the STOP/RESET button. You can change the Seconds, the Hours, the Minutes, the Month, the Date, the Year, and choose between 12 hour (civilian) or 24 hour (military) time. If you keep MODE or START/SPLIT button, you will go through all the things you can change and start again at the beginning. The START/SPLIT button goes through these things forward, and the MODE goes through the backwards, so if you pass something and want to back up, just switch buttons. In the same way, the RECALL changes things by making them larger, and STOP/RESET changes them by making them smaller, so if you accidentally pass the number you're trying to set it to, just switch to the other button and go back.
EXAMPLE OF SETTING THE WATCH Suppose you want to set the hours and the date in the 2nd Time Zone. (Just as an example, but setting any other time or date settings would be the same.)
  1. Press the lower left button on the side (MODE) until you see the date & time.
  2. Press & hold the lower right button on the side (SET) until the word TIME appears on the display, then release it.
  3. If SET T1 is showing, then press & release the upper right button on the side (RECALL) to change it to T2 (because we're wanting to set the 2nd Time Zone we'd leave this unchanged if we wanted to set the 1st time zone, T1.)
  4. Press & release the lower right button on the face (START/SPLIT) twice, skipping the seconds. You should see the hours flashing.
  5. Press & release the upper right button on the side (RECALL) repeatedly until you have the hours position set to what you want it to be. If you pass the hour you want, go to the lower left button on the face (STOP/RESET) and press & release it to back up.
  6. Press & release the lower right button on the face (START/SPLIT) three times, skipping minutes and months, so that the date begins flashing. Press the RECALL button until you have the date you want. (You can go backwards by pressing the STOP/RESET.)
  7. When you're done, and you've set everything you want to, press & release the SET button once to tell the watch you're through setting and to lock those settings in.

This is very difficult to say if your watch is genuine or fake just by the numbers given, but if you will pop in to any decent watch repair shop, they will be able to tell you within a matter of few minutes.

  4. Setting the Alarm
  5. The G-Shock has an alarm that emits an audible tone for approximately 20 seconds when it turns on. To set the alarm, press the lower left button until "AL" displays in the upper left corner of the timepiece. Press and hold the upper left button until the hours unit starts to blink.

In "Time Mode" when time is displayed, hold the "mode" button until the alarm flashes. Press the "mode" button again and the display should change to the seconds flashing. Press the st/stop button to change location between seconds, minutes, hours, date, month, and day. Use the lap/reset button to make any changes.
