Top 20 Timex Expedition® Metal Field 47042 Wrist Watch Questions & Answers


This watch should have a "quick set" date function that lets you advance the dates by turning the setting crown. To get the watch in this mode, pull the set stem out half-way. At that point, turning the setting crown will advance the date on the watch without turning the hands. One some watches, finding the right position for the set stem can be a bit tricky--either it's not out far enough or it's out just a bit too far and the time hands turn. You may have to try pulling the stem in and out a few times to get it just right.

A word of advice: watches are generally designed to advance the date, not to turn it back. It's suggested that if you need turn the date back, you actually advance the date wheel up to 30 days to get to the date you want. Some watches do permit you to turn dates backwards, but I prefer not to risk the chance of hanging up the little springs and mechanism that are designed to advance the date indicator.

One final note: I have serviced several Timex mid-size (ladies or kids size) Expedition watches that lack a quick-set date. Many Timex watches in that size do have a quickset date like I've just described to you, so I have no idea whether these watches happen to have a cheaper movement or if they have some internal damage (it's been the same model each time). At any rate, for those watches, I have had to use the incredibly slow and painful process of advancing the time 24 hours to advance the date. With those watches, if the date is too far advanced by a day or two, it may be easier to stop the watch for 24-48 hours until the date is correct, rather than spend a huge amount of time spinning the crown to advance the time. Hopefully, your watch will have the more sophisticated movement, though.

TURNING OFF A TIMEX IRONMAN (the wr100m is the one I made this work on) ALARM: hold "set" to set each alarm to "on," not "hide." exit. flip through the modes until each alarm shows. don't hit "set," hit "start" or "stop." it should then switch from showing as daily or whatever to showing as OFF! good luck. so, UNHIDE, SHOW ALARM, DON'T SET, STOP -> OFF.

?Quoting from the link above:
?
?"The Timex Expedition Indiglo wristwatch tells the time and date, illuminates at the press of a button, and can wake you up at a designated time. Once you receive and adjust your watch to your liking, you might have questions about how to program the date properly. You’ll want to have an accurate watch before wearing and relying on it throughout your day in class, at work or while exercising. You can set the date on your watch with a few simple steps.
Pull the plastic guard from beneath the crown knob (located on the right edge of the watch), and push the crown knob into the watch to start your watch. You will see the second hand begin to advance.
Pull the crown knob out to the middle position to set the day. The crown knob has three positions: “In,” “Middle” and “Out.” Turn the crown knob clockwise to advance the days up, until the current day appears in the window on the right side of the watch face. Turn the knob counterclockwise to move the date down in number. Push the crown knob all the way in to start the watch.
Pull the crown knob completely out, if the day doesn’t change with the knob in the middle position, and cycle the time backward or forward through 24-hour periods until you arrive at the current day. Push the knob in to start the watch.
Pull the crown out to the middle position and adjust your date to the next month for months that have less than 30 days. Your watch will cycle through 31 days every month, so manual adjustments for shorter months are required."

Setting The Alarm Time
This Timex clock radio has dual alarms that can be set and used independently. The initial default alarm settings are 6:00 AM for Alarm 1 and 7:00 AM for Alarm 2. The procedure for setting both alarms is the same.
NOTE: The alarm times can only be adjusted when the clock radio is in the OFF mode. If the radio is playing, press and hold the POWER/MODE button until the display briefly shows 'OFF'
and then reverts to the time.
1. Press and hold the ALM 1 button until the Alarm 1 time and the Alarm 1 Buzzer indicator begin flashing in the display, then release the button.
2. Press the TUN + (HOUR) button to advance the display to the desired wake-up hour. Observe the PM indicator to confirm that you have set the wake-up hour correctly. If the PM indicator is 'On' the wake-up hour on the display is PM. If the PM indicator does not appear the wake-up hour on the display is AM.
3. Press the TUN - (MINS) button to advance the display to the correct wake-up minute, and then release the button.
4. Press the ALM1 button once more to confirm the wake-up time setting or after 8 seconds the display will stop flashing and the new wake-up time will be entered automatically. The display will return to the correct time of day but the Buzzer indicator will remain 'on' in the display indicating that the Alarm 1 is now set to wake you to the buzzer.
5. To change the alarm mode from buzzer to radio, or to cancel the alarm, press the ALM 1 button again. The Buzzer indicator will turn on. Press the ALM1 button once more to select the Radio alarm. The Radio indicator turns on. Press the ALM 1 button once more to cancel the alarm function. The alarm indicators disappear and the display returns to the correct time.
6. Follow the same procedure to set the Alarm 2 wake-up time.

I wouldn't exactly call one minute per week fast, but it can be annoying to have to keep setting it. It could be your own chemistry that is causing this. It happens to some people.
Is it a wind up?

How you correct time if you needed? Just do the same, but turn time forward or back 24 hour or more. Some watches have : pull half and then turn days directly.

When you go through the set up you will see 12:00 flashing. Push the set button again and you will see 24:00 flashing, select this and move on and should be good
