Has anyone had to re calibrate one of these watches? I have the same model that Fred Olsen wears (day/date)and the date is indicating the 28th instead of the 30th. I contacted Timex in Little Rock, AK and the lady suggested that I send it to them to be re-calibrated. Timex recommends that you send these watches back to them for battery changes. Thanks for your comments in advance!

Timex perpetual setting instructions...

Score 5.0 (1 person)

I found the instructions below, but can't you just manually advance the hour/min hands until you reach the correct day/date?  Will that work?

Set time:

To set time, simply pull crown all the way out and turn. Day and date

change automatically when time is adjusted past midnight; there is no

additional step for setting day or date. Push crown in when done.

 

Set Date (after battery change):

Set time and day of the week first (see above). Then, set date as follows.

Please read all instructions before continuing. All steps must be performed.

If setting is not done properly, push reset switch arm (see picture

above) or remove and re-install battery, and repeat procedure in

order for perpetual calendar feature to work.

 Pull crown to MIDDLE position.

If necessary, turn crown until date is centered in date window.

Push crown in.

Pull crown to MIDDLE position and wait for at least ten seconds (date

moves back and forth).

Turn crown until '1' is displayed in date window and push crown in.

Date moves back and forth to indicate start of date setting.

Pull crown to MIDDLE position.

Turn crown until correct date (1-31) is shown and push crown in.

Watch displays '2' in date window to indicate start of month setting.

Pull crown to MIDDLE position.

Turn crown until correct month (1-12) is shown and push crown in.

Watch displays '3' in date window to indicate start of year setting.

Pull crown to MIDDLE position.

Turn crown until correct year (last two digits) is shown and push

crown in.

Watch displays correct date and setting is done.

Watch will show correct date for battery's life. If date changes at noon,

adjust time by 12 hours. If incorrect date is shown at beginning of

month, date may not have been set. Follow procedure above. If date

does not move back and forth after waiting ten seconds, in the fourth

step, push reset switch arm (see picture above) or remove and re-install

battery and repeat procedure.

Thanks gigfy!

I searched the web for over an hour trying to find this procedure and you were the only person I could find who was willing to post these instructions. Most links only want to sell you a watch. The owner's manual is of no help. I used your directions on the Timex Men's T-Series Perpetual Calendar Watch (T2M455) with great success.

As you point out it is essential that one follow the recipe exactly - not omitting any steps.

I had to reset the watch a few times by depressing the "reset" arm until it contacted the base.
I discovered that this was much simpler than removing and reinstalling the new battery over and over.
Eventually I got it right.

It should be noted that a special wrench is needed to unscrew the back and a tiny phillps-head screwdriver is required to release the battery assembly.

Timex claims to offers "free" battery replacement and recalibration, but wants an $8.00 mailing fee.
This post is a real time and money saver!

Thanks again!

How do you set the day of the week?

1st, the PDF link on gigfy's post returns a 404 - page not found.

But the problem I'm having is that in his instructions, he says "set the time and day (see above)" but there is no "above".

I've tested the year and month (and it's very geeky wonderful to see that dial spinning to the year, then back to the date), and they're both correct, but the weekday is wrong.

I messed it up somehow when setting the time, but can't figure out what I did or how to get the weekday back.

Suggestions appreciated

Correct date, wrong day - easy solution!

This one is easy to be solved - just pull the crown to the time setting position and by changing the time reach the correct day. Then pull back and that's all - the date remains correct.

Hi Mel,

Any chance that you can send or post to this blog the PDF for resetting Timex perpetual after a battery change?

The link that Gigfy posted in 2009 returns a 404 error.

Thanks,

ljsanna@yahoo.com

Hi Folks, here it is Feb 2014 and when I tried the link to the PDF instructions for re- calibrating my Timex perpetual after a battery replacement..... It appears that Timex has pulled it down. Does any one have the PDF that Gigfy posted back in 2013?


Thanks, ljsanna@yahoo.com

He provided the instruction text from the pdf.
i.e. The text after "Set Date (after battery change):"

I found a pdf file Timex-Perpetual-Setting.pdf in another forum. Google it.

I just changed my battery today. The only thing not in the pdf is a picture of the "reset switch arm". The instruction says to push the reset switch arm or re-install battery.

My watch had the "reset" area clearly marked but it is not a switch. I just took a paper clip and momentarily touched the back of the battery to the reset area, then follow the instruction after "Set Date (after battery change):"

Here is a picture of my watch with the back cover removed:
