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.

For the analog Timex Indiglo with both day and date (CR 2016 Cell on back) and only the single crown available you must first pull out the stem and turn through the hours 24 at a time to get to the correct day(MON,TUES,etc.). Then you can pull the stem out only half way and set the date (1,2,3,etc.). Be careful to attend to the AM/PM time as you turn the stem for the day. Go too far and the day will change at noon and you have to wind through seven more 24 hours to correct it.

Some watches won't let you 'decrease' numbers. You might have to count forward, (2023, 2024, 2025....), until it comes full circle back to an earlier year. I have attached a web page for a Timex digital watch. It should be close enough to yours to help.

This link will take you to the official Timex page where you can download the instruction manuals for any of their watches. All you need to know is the model number.

Your Timex may have a separate battery for the display.

I had the same problem with the watch my wife bought me. On the mode make sure it doesn;t say T2 in the top right hand corner. if it does you are in the wrong mode. Hit the mode button until it shows the day of the week highlighted and a date and then go through the normal time set procedures. That worked for me.

If it is the same Outward Bound, might try contacting them using web site:


Try search on Google.com and Ebay.com

Also, Etsy.com often has used items for sale that are over 10 years old.
