It sounds like one of the hands is pausing as it brushes against something. It sounds like a treasured watch. I would take it to a professional watch repair shop. Mine was losing a minute or two per hour from the hand being slightly bent. Good luck!
1Pinch the winding knob on the right side of the watch between your thumb and forefinger.
2 Pull the knob out from the watch slowly until it clicks into the first position.
3Turn the knob to move the hour and minute hand to set the time. Move the knob clockwise to move the settings forward and counterclockwise to move them backwards.
4 Pull the knob out further until it clicks into the second position. In the second position (the one furthest from the face), turn the knob to set the calendar, if your Indiglo has one. Turn the knob clockwise to move the settings forward and counterclockwise to move them backward. Push the knob back in to the watch face when you are done.
How to Set Digital Indigo Watches
1 Press the button on the lower right side of your Indiglo watch to unlock the mode function of the watch.
2 Press the button on the lower left side to move through the modes. Each time you are in a mode, the digital display will flash. For example, when the time display begins to flash, you are in the correct mode to set the time.
3 Change the time (or date) by pressing the button on the upper right side to advance the numbers or the button on the left side to move the numbers down. When you do this, you will be changing the first set of numbers (the hour or month, for instance); to change the minutes, press the button on the right side of the face until the second set of numbers is flashing and begin the process again.
4 Press the button on the lower left side of the watch to save your settings. The button on the upper left side of the watch is not used in this process--it is the switch to turn on your Indiglo light.

Press "mode" again and the left minute number will flash. Press "mode" again and the hour will flash. Press "mode" again and the month will flash. Press "mode" again and the date will flash. Any time any groups of these numbers are flashing, you can change the numbers by pressing the "start/stop" button. When you get the numbers you want, press "set" to lock in those numbers.
To change from 12 to 24 hour, get the hour numbers flashing and press

Hi Debra, yours might be similar to my IronMan watch...... 4 small Philips head screws to remove then back comes away to reveal a sticker that has 2 clips either side, use a safety pin point to release the clips and the battery comes off with the sticker! The battery is placed with the total flat side upwards! Hope this helps!
