I have previous great experience with Timex watches, and feel they present a great value package of durability, good timekeeping, and style. This is my third.

As soon as I saw the color on the face I knew I had to purchase this with the Nato Orange White and Navy strap also here on Amazon:

While it is a hair on the large side, most people will find it adequate, but I wouldn't recommend it if you have very small wrists.
Changing out the strap was only as difficult as I expected, using a jewelers screwdriver.
Once it was fully swapped out it does an awesome job of highlighting the details and pops much better, with many compliments.
An added bonus is that with the dark numbers, the Indiglo is much easier to read in at night than my other watches.
I've only had this about two weeks, but I am more than pleased with the purchase.

It looks better in the flesh than on the screen.
I am delighted with this purchase, a handsome watch at a bargain price, mine arrived in Jewelry Store packaging with the RRP label adhered to it, it is marked for sale at $53 plus the shrapnel, so a bargain too!
I have removed the standard strap and replaced it with a simple blue and white NATO jobbie for $11.99 here on Amazon, and I think it looks terrific.
Anyone moaning (unless theirs arrives broken) is being a little too picky about such a bargain watch, it is not a Seiko, Citizen, etc and at a tenth of the price should not be compared, but it is a nice time peice.

Pros:
* It's a pretty attractive watch for how cheap it is.
* I like the simple and clean design, and time is immediately obvious from glancing at it.
* The resin band keeps it from stinking up your wrist (if you use it as a sports watch or need to wear a watch in the shower/bath).
* The Indiglo dial lights up when you need to tell the time in the dark.

Cons:
* Not terribly accurate. I just set the time less than a week ago, the watch has already lost four seconds. It may not be fair to compare this watch to a Citizen watch nearly 4x its cost, but the Citizen Men's BM8290-05E Eco-Drive Titanium Watch would only lose about a second every six months.
* The clockwork is incredibly loud. When it's quiet at night, it's clearly audible half way across the room. Again, the Citizen is whisper quiet, and you have to hold it next to your ear for it to be barely audible.
* The case finish is slightly brushed stainless steel and makes it look kind of cheap.

I do like the watch overall, but am disappointed by how loud and inaccurate it is.

Funny, but google "Timex loud." Apparently this is something Timex's are known for.

Good basic watch for the price. Indiglow feature useful in dark settings. Very readable face and numbers. Fits well on wrist.

It's nice looking but kind of heavy - maybe some people will appreciate the heft. Arrived with a dead battery. Asked seller for a new battery, no can do, would only offer a refund. The price goes up & down like a yo-yo, was patient and got it for $19.99.

This was an impulse purchase for me. I liked the looks of it and the price was right. I have a few mechanical watches, but I wanted another quartz watch that I could grab at any time and not worry about setting the time. I immediately replaced the band with a nato strap, but the blue band looked decent, just too flashy for my taste. The watch itself is average quality, what you would expect at this price point. It has kept accurate time so far and the indiglo feature is great. I have found myself wearing this watch more than anything else on weekends working around the house.
To be very nit-picky, the seconds hand doesn't line up with the second marks and the date window and crown are too small. The only reason I docked a star though is, as other reviewers have mentioned, the ticking noise is very noticeable. I started to look for a dripping pipe in my house before I realized it was my watch. Its not really a big deal, but something to consider if you work in a quiet environment or are sensitive to noise when going to sleep. All in all, I'm happy with the purchase.

When I ordered this I had planned to switch the blue band with a black one but when it arrived, it looked good with the blue so I left it alone. I really like this watch...it is a metal casse (not plastic), looks good and the indigo lighting is awesome, I can finally see the time on a watch at night. I am 50 so I also now appreciate the bigger dial and numbers.
