No, just set properly. This watch is very difficult to set. A watchmaker may be able to help you. The instructions are not very clear. You might try a watchmaker for assistance or try calling them although I have not had much luck along those lines.
I would try replacing the battery in your watch to see if it comes back to life. So-called "atomic watches" have tiny radio receivers in them that periodically listen for the official atomic time being broadcast via WWVB in Colorado. However, as you might imagine, it takes a lot more power to operate a radio receiver than it does to power a typical quartz wristwatch, and even with larger-capacity or double batteries, it's been my experience that these watches burn through batteries more quickly than traditional "set them yourself" watches.
An additional factor is that a watch that cannot find the WWVB signal will scan for long periods of time before putting its radio receiver into hibernate mode. So, if your watch has been stored in a basement, an interior room in a large building, or some other place where a radio signal can't penetrate, that would also shorten the watch's battery life.
Time and date setting are only necessary if automatic setting by radio broadcast is unsuccessful. To set time, date, and options: 1) With time and day showing, press and hold SET. 2) City code flashes. Press START/STOP to select city that represents your time zone. See table below for city codes. 3) Press MODE. DST (daylight savings time) setting flashes. Press START/STOP to select AUTO (obey setting in radio signal), ON, or OFF (disregarding setting in radio signal for ON/OFF). 4) Press MODE. Hour flashes. Press START/STOP to change hour (including AM/PM); hold button to scan values 5) Press MODE. Minutes flash. Press START/STOP to change minutes 6) Press MODE. Seconds flash. Press START/STOP to set seconds to zero. 7) Press MODE. Year flashes. Press START/STOP to change year. 8) Press MODE. Month flashes. Press START/STOP to change month. 9) Press MODE. Day flashes. Press START/STOP to change day. 10) Press MODE. Date flashes. Press START/STOP to select M-D (month-day) or D-M (day-month) format. 11) Press MODE. Hourly chime setting flashes. Press START/STOP to select ON/OFF. When ON is selected, watch chimes on every hour. 12) Press MODE. Button beep setting flashes. Press START/STOP to select ON/OFF. When ON is selected, watch beeps for every button press. 13) Press SET, at any step, when done setting. Press and hold MODE to switch between 12- and 24-hour time format. Press SET to view date. Year is at top of display and date is below. Press RECEIVE to view current city. Press and hold RECEIVE to begin manual reception of time signal, as described in ATOMIC CLOCK SYNCHRONIZATION section.
to reset the date manually, pull the stem out to the second position to reset TIME; manually continue setting time until the date is on the correct day/date.
I had to do this to get back to the proper date when my timex was off by a week. Nothing else worked. 14 times around (twice per 24 hour day) and each time I passed "midnight" the date advanced.
You should probably replace the battery using a new CR2016 battery. Let the watch set a while without the battery to help it reset. WR 100m just means the watch is "Water Resistant to 100 Meters". Then use the following info. 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:
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
