How do you change day / date on Timex Marlin ??


Recommended Posts

When you`ve changed the time have you tried pulling the crown out further to change the date, and possibly a third time to change the day, sometimes dates can be set turning the crown clockwise and anti clockwise for the day...or is it the other way round,:wacko:on the info you passed on thats all i can say, im sure someone will know.

Pull button out does time change if you turn button? if yes keep turning till hour hand (small) passes 12 if date changes (good sign) if not keep turning till 12 is reached again, if nothing happens to date or day BIN IT (just kidding :laugh:)  try all again if button can be pulled out ( gently) a second stop. 

if date works just turn button opposite direction day should change if not take to watch repair shop NOT TIMPSONS

Hope this helps

I have a nice vintage 1978 (I believe) Timex Marlin watch pictured here - but I can't fathom out how to change either the day or date? The crown is either 'in' to wind it up or 'out' to change the time. Am I missing something?

Try this.

If it doesn't work on yours there is another way, let me know how you get on. :)

Thanks chaps - there was no other position than the one pull out - a nice simple design - I'm now running the correct UK time and date - EXCELLENT. Nice little watch this!
