    Question Timex Expedition Chronograph Problem

    Hi guys, I hope you can help me out on this one!

    After sending this watch (Timex Expedition T49904) to change the battery, it came back with the chronograph working partially and the time keeping not precise. I brought the watch back to the jeweler and he said the watch was broken when he fixed it and he doesn't know what's wrong with it. Liar.

    I know this is a cheap watch but it has an emotional value to me.



    EDIT: Time keeping is working fine, my bad saying it doesn't. Problem is only on the chrono reset button.

    You probably have to replace the whole module ...

    In 98% of cases, the module can not be repaired. Try to find out how to calibrate the hands for that module, maybe it helps (if I don't believe it)

    Is there a g10.211 in that watch ?

    Thanks for answering. I entered before into calibration mode and it works partially as one of the buttons won't work anymore.
    I found a video on YouTube with a similar problem but solution is different as it's a different module. Mine doesn't have that 'cover' in the back plate, nor the spring for contact.
    Is there a g10.211 in that watch? No. Something else, trying to find the model name now.

    You need to find out, which module is in your watch.... Then look for calibration information.
    Whatever module it is in it, I do not think it's a big investment to buy a new one...

    The manual doesn't mention what module it is specifically, but the manual 'version' is for W91 watches, so I assume this is the module.
    It is a cheap watch indeed, but I want to fix this one. Like I said, emotional value.

    Sounds like you may have a poorly movement on your hands. If so you really need to find out what module is in the watch. I had a very quick look but drew a blank. Once you know this you can think about having a new movement fitted not by the guy who changed the battery though.

    So, I emailed Timex asking for the info and they sent me this:

    Re: Timex Expedition Chronograph Problem

    Is there any possibility of the movement being a bit 'misplaced', being further enough from the case button to reach the mechanism?

    It's a common movement - the M921 (sometimes called an M927, but I don't know why) - used in most of Timex chronos made in the last 10 years.
    Some of Timex' chronos are offered without Indiglo (I don't know the module number). Something to keep in mind when sourcing a replacement.

    The plastic movement retaining ring has small metal pins in it to bridge the gap between module switch and push buttons.
    Maybe one is missing, crooked or otherwise messed up?

    A button malfunction combined with a change in time-keeping is odd.
    Maybe the movement is just crooked in the case causing binding of buttons and gear train???

    Good luck.


    Here's the calibre printed on the dial:

    Thanks for answering. I will open the case again tomorrow and try to see if I spot anything.
    Strangely enough, time keeping now is okay... It's only the Chronograph reset button not working now.
    This watch face from the picture is really, really gorgeous!
