Have you ever looked down at your trusty Timex watch only to realize the date is completely wrong?
It’s frustrating, right?
The good news is that learning how to change the date on a Timex watch is super easy, whether you have an analog or digital model.
In this blog post, I’ll walk you through the steps on how to change the date on both types of Timex watches.
With the instructions I have shared, you’ll be able to keep the date accurate on your Timex watch all year round.
How to Change the Date on an Analog Timex Watch?
If you have an analog Timex watch with hour and minute hands, here is how you can change the date:
Step 1 — First, pull the crown of the watch out to the date-setting position. The crown is the knob on the side of the watch face. Pulling it out stops the hands from moving so you can change the date without interrupting the time.
Step 2 — Next, turn the crown clockwise or counter-clockwise to change the date on your Timex watch. As you turn the crown, you’ll hear the date click over to the next day. Go slowly and listen for the click to know when the date has advanced forward or backward.
Step 3 — The last step is to return the crown to the normal position when you have the correct date showing. Pushing the crown back in restarts the hands and keeps the watch ticking with the new date change.
Pro Tip: Some Timex analog watches have a handy "quick date" feature. To use this, turn the crown counter-clockwise several times quickly - about 4 or 5 times. Your watch is now in quick-date mode. When you turn the crown clockwise in this mode, the date will cycle through the days very quickly. It's a great way to get the right date dialed in faster.
How to Change the Date on a Digital Timex Watch?
For digital Timex watches, here are the steps to adjust the date:
Step 1 — First, press and hold the Mode button to enter Time Mode. The Mode button toggles through the various modes like time, date, alarms, etc.
Step 2 — Once you are in Time Mode, press and release the Set button. This will make the month’s digits flash on the screen. Now you can use the Mode button to change the month up or down to the correct month.
Step 3 — Press and release the Set button again and the date digits will begin flashing. Use the Mode button again to change the date up or down to the correct date of the month.
Step 4 — Finally, press and release the Set button one more time to save your settings and exit the date setting mode. The new date is now set!
