Excellent style, timely functionality at a reasonable price.

I bought this watch about six weeks ago and love it! It has tons of style, it's easy to read for us nearly blind folks and it's a Timex! It is a large and very heavy watch but that weight screams quality! It is approximately 1-3/4" in diameter and 1/2" thick, which seems to be pretty standard for watches, in this day and age. I'm a fairly small person, at 5'7" with a medium build, but it looks fine on my wrist. The crystal is so clear, it's nearly invisible. One feature that you would never know about until you see it up close is that the case sides are knurled to match the pattern of the center links in the band. You can't see this detail in the photos above. I have found this watch to be very accurate; I have a Guess Water Pro that I set my Timex to and they are still right on the minute with each other after six weeks.
The Indiglo feature isn't what I expected, (it's kinda like a negative of a photo, not a back light) but it's functional, plus the hands are luminous, so given enough light to gather, they glow on their own.
The only negative that I can find is with the watch band, it only adjusts by taking out links, it has no micro adjustment and it's either a little tight or loose enough to slide up over my wrist joint. So, I keep it a little tight.
All in all, it's a fine watch that I would recommend. I hope it lasts for the rest of my life.
