Ensure you have only pulled it out one notch as two notches only disconnects the battery.

How do i set the time on a timex Expedition T49949

Hello. You just have to pull and turn the crown found in the 3H location of your watch. Normally for timex watch with date function, you have to pull the crown on the 2nd pull position or until the hands move when you turn the crown.

Can not set the date and day

I assume you are talking about a day-date Timex. Timex watches do have a quickset feature meaning the day and date can be set without having to simply advance the time by 24 hours to adjust the Day-Date. Not all watches have a quickset, but I'm sure your Timex does. Unscrew the crown from the stem by turning it counter clockwise until it is free from the threads. At this point pull the crown all the way out so that you can adjust the time. That's position 2 the quickset is in position 1 but the tricky part is getting the crown in the proper position to engage the quickset. Push the crown in very slowly while turning once you see the day or date window advance stop turning you are in position 1. Day and date can be set in this position by turning the crown in either direction. If your watch does not have a quickset or you cannot figure out how to engage it you must set the date by advancing the time forward 24 hours. This will make the date window advance by one day. Once the right date is displayed turn the time backwards 24 hours and this will cause the day window to move without affecting the date window. And that's all there is to it.

I have Timex SR 920 SW watch, how to adjust the date and day?

Adjust the day of month (1-31) by pulling the crown pin out part way, and turning the pin counter clockwise, incrementing the date arm. Counterclockwise does nothing.

To adjust day of week (Mon-Sun), pull the pin out and rotate to turn minute/hour hands. Each time you pass 12:00, the weekday hand will increment by a half step.

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.

mcdevito75 here, Your Timex stem (winder) has 2 positions, slip a fingernail just under the crown (winder) and lift the crown to it"s first position this will allow you to change the DATE (number) with out haveing to go thru the 24 hour cycle some many times. It may take a little practice but the stem has those 2 positions.

I need to set the day, I can change the date. On a Timex WR 30M watch.. reply to [email protected]

Usually, with crown pulled out to first position, turning the crown in one direction will change the day and the other direction will change the date.
If this does not work try moving the hands to different positions then attempt to adjust the day/date.
If this does not work, there are some models that just don't have a way to set the day short of turning the crown 1000 times cycling through the days manually and blistering your fingers.

No instruction manual

For Compass Adjustment search on Google or FixYa

For Temperature calibration:
1. Pull the crown to most extended position (2 notches)
2. Temp hand moves to a default position
3. Move hand in + or - direction by pressing temp or tide buttons (above and below crown button)
4. When done, push crown to 0 position
(I used melting ice water to calibrate and fix to 0 deg C)

For Tide calibration:
1. Pull crown to middle position (1 notch)
2. Move hand in + or - direction by pressing temp or tide buttons (above and below crown button)
3. When done, push crown to 0 position

Hope this helps

I have a Timex T42351 tachymeter chrono alarm wristwatch which needs the time adjusting. Unfortunately, only the hour hand moves (also altering the date). I need to adjust the minutes. How do i go about...

This watch has a cool feature that allows you to change only the hour if you are changing time zones. But if you want to change the minutes as well, then pull the crown out farther. You'll find that it has four positions: Normal, pulled out one notch, pulled out two notches, and pressed in to turn on the light.


As long as we're at it, notice the crown in the four o'clock position also has three positions. In: set alarm. One notch out activates an alarm including the hour and minutes. Two notches out only activates the minute setting, so you don't have to move the hour hand all the way around.

Also cool.

Just got a new timex expedition and I pulled the crown and pushed in and the hands are still not moving, what can I do to fix it?

Just pulled the crown,half pull for DAY / DATE adjustment and full pull is for the hands HOUR /MINUTES setting, while pulling you wind it.Even you wind and the hands are not moving,then there is something wrong to the winding gear maybe it is worn out already.

hope this may help;

3-Position Crown: Pull crown to "MIDDLE" position and turn CLOCKWISE or
COUNTERCLOCKWISE until correct date appears.
2-Position Crown: Pull crown to "OUT" position and turn CLOCKWISE until date
changes (approx.1:00 a.m.). Then turn COUNTERCLOCKWISE to 7:30 p.m. Repeat until correct date appears.
