Timex Watches - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support


I can't get the cover to close on a timex watch.

I used to work with jewelry. !!BEWARE!!
This method is for face crystals that are completely FLAT! Any convex crystal will shatter without proper tools!!!
Any method of putting the watch cover back with the watch remotely near water/moisture is a mistake. The watch will rust sooner or later.
So if you don't want to pay a jeweler five dollars to put it back on, this is what I did to my sister's watch cover when I could not snap it back.
I took my cushy 1/4 inch mousepad to a vise. You may not have a vise. If you don't, stop reading now and take the watch to a jeweler --one who replaces batteries.
Inside the vise jaws, I used a 5 inch square piece of wood, then my cushy mousepad, then the watch facing the pad, then the back in the right place for restoring.
!!!!NOTE: Not having the back in the right place will smash the stem and damage can/will result!!!
To push the back on, I picked a 12 point socket out of my socket set that was the same DIAMETER as the watch back and placed it CENTERED behind the back.
Recapping, inside vise:
  • small board
  • cushy mousepad (to avoid scarring and crystal breakage
  • watch crystal facing mousepad
  • watch back in correct position
  • ratchet socket the same diameter as watch back centered behind cover
Slowly I positioned all these items with minimal pressure. Then when I was sure that I was ready (and prepared to hear the crystal break) I put as little pressure closing the vise that I could. The I heard a snap, and to my relief, it was the back going in!

I DO NOT RECOMMEND THAT YOU DO WHAT I DID. People with broken watch crystals become very IRATE when "all it needed was a battery"!

A screw clamp would also give adequate pressure. Any unsupported direct pressure over the crystal will shatter it!

Hope this helped.
Good luck!!!!

Timex Expedition Indiglo WR 50M. How do I remove the back panel to replace the battery please

Question edited for clarity. The watch is waterproof so it has a screw back with a gasket, or a VERY tight press back with gasket. You need a special tool to remove it without damaging it and you need the skill to replace it without cross-threading it. With press on backs, there is a tool to remove and another to press the back on squarely without smashing the glass face. All explained in this tip I wrote. https://www.fixya.com/support/r27181038-changing_watch_batteries Videos if you wish to proceed. ..

I left my timex solar watch in my watch case too long - and it stopped working. How do I repower the watch. (I have had it out in sunlight for a couple of days).

I am thinking you need a new battery. It appears to be a battery operated watch that runs on solar power IF there is light. How long will a Timex Solar watch last? The solar movement functionality creates an environmentally-friendly and maintenance free timepiece that can be charged through indoor fluorescent light or outdoor sunlight. Once fully charged, the battery life can reach two months. If worn daily, there is very little chance the watch will stop.

My timex watch changes the date at noon instead of

This is because you have reversed am with pm.
Set your watch 12 hours back and the problem should be solved.
You might want to wait till midnight or noon to check it's fine.

Note: if you see the day shows the previous day rather than the present day, you have to set the clock 24h ahead.
Problem solved!

Indiglo does not work after changing battery

On a Timex a lot of times the back has to be on for everything to work. But I am going to assume the back is on. The indiglo could just be out. Timex repairs their watches for little or no cost. You would have to mail it to them for repair as they do not release parts to anyone. I believe their number is 1-800 for time

Timex Expedition with Hydra Timer started randomly changing time and functions. Battery was replaced 1 year ago.

Either a loose connection inside or it just needs a new battery. They can be power hungry depending on how you use it and what battery technology type was used in the last one.

Battery replacement Timex T2H381

This will depend on the back of the watch. Totally smooth watch back is usually a push fit. Using a small precision screwdriver you Gently lever around the back plate until it 'Pops' off. the battery should hook out by CAREFULLY using the screwdriver you used to remove the back plate. *Note* check which way up the battery is fitted BEFORE you remove it. The back plate should just push on and should quietly click when seated correctly. Some back plates are 'screw on'. You can usually spot these by the dimples or notches on the back plate where the removal tool fits.

It's not that old, did you ask them direct? Servicing is their responsibility normally for at least 10 years. I can't find a battery with three wires either. The Garmin watches have a circular wired battery but only 2 wires.

I Don't know to set up of the TIMEX DIGITAL WR100M IRONMAN CLASSIC 100 THAT I JUST GOT/// HELP

A lot of watch manufacturers use the American style date layout of Month/Day/Year. Try this. Looking at the watch press and hold the bottom right SIDE button for 3 seconds. It should enter setting mode where the seconds display will flash. Press the Right FACE button once. It should switch to the Hour display flashing. Press the same button again to go to minutes and them again to go to the date display. Repeated pressing of the top Right SIDE button changes the numbers upwards, (1,2,3,4), and the Left FACE button changes the numbers downwards, (4,3,2,1). Press the Bottom right SIDE button once to finish and go back to the normal display. http://assets.timex.com/manual/W-9.pdf
