Watches do not know the difference between am and pm

Posted on Apr 14, 2019

Testimonial: "When the watch changes by itself to Pm it changes the date half way through the day meaning half the day is tomorrow. I'm trying to change the am to pm so it remains correct"

SOURCE: watch battery replacement

I have a Timex Expedition Indigo with a metal case. Not sure of the exact model number but on the back there an M6 below Expedition. Anyway, I had the same problem of snapping the back back on. I found a "battery" website that had some suggestions that should be typical of any snap back case watch. http://www.online-batteries.co.uk/whichbattery.shtml specifically they said that when you try to press the back on it must be flat (not one edge down as I had been trying) Put the watch face down on a non scratch surface and press with both thumbs evenly. If that doesn't work a press will be needed. If you have a vice a couple of blocks of wood to distribute the load on the front and back may work, otherwise take it to a jeweler with the proper equipment. The thumb routine didn't work for me. I have a vice but figured many wouldn't so I tried something else first. I put the watch face down on a piece of wood. I found a small 2" long scrap of wood (3/4" x 1.5" approx) that spanned the back. I centered the back (aligned properly) placed the block of wood squarely and centered across the back and tapped the end of the block with a hammer. First try didn't work, second one did. I used a rubber mallet as the hammer but a regular hammer or other heavy object would work. The trick, I think, is to get everything lined up and square so the blow is centered and even. Also, I'd suggest cleaning the back and the groove in the case and be sure the rubber gasket is properly positioned. This will give you the best chance of retaining the waterproofing. And remember to check that the watch is running before you do this. Some need to be reset (usually with a very small screwdriver or pin) after replacing the battery. There should be a small hole with some printing next to it. You may need a magnifying glass to see/read it. Good Luck, Richard

I had the same problem, and could not find any answers on timex.com. After you place the battery in and it begins to beep, push all four buttons in at the same time. This should "reset" the watch -- at least it did for me.

I ran into the same problem w/ my new Timex Expedition. I emailed their help desk and they said that the Expedition models do not have lap memory feature. You need an IronMan watch to get lap recall. Wish I knew that before getting this Expedition watch...

SOURCE: REMOVE BACK COVER

If caseback is without grooves, it is snap on caseback and you have to insert openers blade under the lip and pry up. Lip is the tiny gap between the case and caseback.
If you have groves in caseback, it is screwdown caseback and you will need special opening tool. Insert the blades in to the grooves and unscrew the caseback.
You can find this tool on eBay.

Rate, please.

My Timex Expedition Indiglo wrist watch has had two new batteries and keeps on stopping quite frequently. The Jewler cleaned everything and it still won't work properly. Is there somewhere that I can send...


The watch would have to go back to the manufacture, try www.timex.com for customer support and ask for technical assistance, they should be able to direct you to the nearest authorized store or they may have you send it to them.

Can't turn off the alarm on a timex Expedition Watch


buy a Casio wrist watch at KMart for around $17.00. They last five years, then the
band breaks and you buy a new watch. I timed the traffic signal system of our city for 20 years from a Casio wrist watch. Now in retirement, I have a Time Expedition which has several alarms which I do not need, and can't turn off. We change the time twice annually, so having alarms and chimes go off without warning ca bve a nuisance.I found some instructions on a website which shows how to turn the alarms off.

Timex Expedition Hour-hand off


Your watch's hour hand is a bit loose or hour wheel skipped a few teeth and now is not in correct engagement. To solve this you need to visit your nearest watch repair shop and ask for help as you don't have knowledge and specific tools to carry out repairs. Any attempts to solve this without special tools and knowledge will definetely damage your watch.

Timex Men's Digital Expedition Chrono Alarm Timer Watch battery


hi
please follow the steps to change the battery
  1. Step 1 Make sure the little arrow on the back is aimed to the right. Then, insert a small flat head screwdriver into the notch on the edge, and lever the back open. Place the back to one side.
  2. Step 2 Unscrew the clip holding the battery (if your model has a clip), and remove the battery.
  3. Step 3 Use plastic tweezers to put in a new battery. Do not directly touch the new battery. Screw the clip (if it has one) back on.
  4. Step 4 Replace the gasket that seals the watch. Then lightly coat the gasket with a silicone-based grease.
  5. Step 5 Align the back with the little arrow aimed to the right again, then carefully press the watch between two pieces of wood that are being held by a small vise, until the back seats itself.
thank you....
