OK, this guy I know was dumb enough to have lost the instruction manual for my his Coleman watch on his wrist. Now normally that would be no problem because I he already knows how to set all the functions. But this dang leap year, 2-29-08 messed things up because now the date on my his watch is one day ahead of itself and shows 3-3-08. Try as I he might, he can't figure out how to correct or reset the date. Does anyone know?

If so, thanks in advance for helping. This dope has already searched the internet for a copy of the owners instruction manual but with no luck.

Take it down to the Coleman store, and they will reset it for free.

Yep. I was surprised also when I saw it at Target. It was only $19.99 and it is a big, heavy, burly, manly watch. Kinda reminds you of the Coleman outdoor/camping gear.

Hey everybody. Here is something very weird I discovered when trying to post about this watch. You can try it yourself. Just try and type in the words "Coleman wrisWar on Terrorch" and see what actually shows up on the screen.

In red above. I did not type "Coleman wrisWar on Terrorch". What I did type (have to add spaces apparently to keep it from going crazy again) was "Coleman w-r-i-s-t-w-a-t-c-h". But instead of that being posted, instead the above in red was posted. How weird is that?

OH, I get it. The old GB autocensor hard at work. Probably GB management should have paid an American to develop that program instead of relying on those people from India.

Could you maybe go to the store that sells the watches and ask them to take a look at the instructions??

I know you don't believe in ghosts, Fox.
That is too bad, because your watch is posessed by a demonic entity.
You will need to do an exorcism.

I don't own a coleman, but I checked my watch when I read your post and mine was wrong. Analog, though, easier for me to set.

Number 40-844 on the back of the watch. It is a big, burly manly watch. About the size of a Volkswagen rim.

Haha. Nice try to weave things that don't exist, ghosts, into a Coleman watch topic. But since the only crazy thing my watch is doing is showing one day in advance, I doubt it is being controlled by demons or ghosts. If it turns out that it is I guess I will have to dip the watch in some holy water or some such.

edit:

Push the button at the 8:00 position and hold it 'til things start flashing. Then push another button until it changes what is flashing. Then push yet a third button until the flashing thing changes. I didn't exactly pay attention to which button I was pushing when, but you should be able to figure it out, right?





Thanks Henry. I got it. Like you said, it is difficult to remember the sequence of buttons and what is displayed, but someway, somehow I got it. Thanks everybody for paying attention to my minor problem. Guess it was ghosts after all.

Dang, that was what he was looking for. But for now he has taken care of the problem. Thanks all.

Update. I went ahead and printed the instruction sheet just in case he needs it again in another 4 years.

Have a funny story about Coleman, "Mr. Coleman", actually. Met him once. Experience was pretty aggrevating at the time, but looking back on it now, it's so utterly stupid it's funny. I now understand how he became "Mr. Coleman"....or any other "Mr. So and So".

Maybe I'll post it sometime.

So call it a wrist watch. Two words, not one. BTW, I didn't make that entry into the bad word filter.

Somedays it pays to still be wearing a y2K compliant Seiko- self winding with HANDS and a calendar window. IIRC, this one is about 30 yrs old, still going strong.
