We feel most alive when we’re furthest from life’s routine. The air seems fresher when we ski unmarked slopes, define our own trail, or escape to our secluded fishing spot. Creating a relationship with nature nourishes like no technology can. Timex® Expedition® watches reflect the secluded terrain that inspires adventure, and are built to endure the depths and elements you subject yourself to.
For active explorers of every stripe, the Timex Men's T49826 Expedition Rugged Chronograph Analog-Digital Watch combines a classic analog dial with a convenient digital display. The durable silver-toned case and bezel offer a sophisticated, sports-inspired look. The black dial features 24-hour chronograph with lap and split option, 24-hour countdown timer, daily alarm, day and month function, and three time zone settings. Both the analog dial and digital display include Indiglo® features for easy viewing in low-light conditions. With a silver-toned stainless steel bracelet, this watch can go from the office to active, outdoor environments with ease. This Timex watch relies on analog movement and is water-resistant up to 165 feet (50 meters).
Timex Group B.V. is one of the best-known American watch companies. Timex's U.S. headquarters are located in Middlebury Connecticut and it has substantial operations in China, the Philippines and India and full scale sales companies in Canada, the UK, France and Mexico.
The company began in 1854 as Waterbury Clock in Connecticut's Naugatuck Valley, known during the nineteenth century as the "Switzerland of America." Sister company Waterbury Watch manufactured the first inexpensive mechanical pocket watch in 1880. During World War I, Waterbury began making wristwatches, which had only just become popular, and in 1933 it made history by creating the first Mickey Mouse clock under license from Walt Disney, with Mickey's hands pointing the time.
During World War II, Waterbury renamed itself U.S. Time Company. In 1950 the company introduced a wristwatch called the Timex. Over the next three decades, Timex was sold through a series of advertisements which emphasized its durability by putting the watch through "torture tests," such as falling over the Grand Coulee Dam or being strapped to the propeller of an outboard motor, with the slogan "It takes a licking and keeps on ticking." With the help of former Olympic broadcaster, spokesman John Cameron Swayze, sales took off. The company later became Timex Corporation, then Timex Group and, to date, has sold over one billion watches.
The company has remained very competitive and the Timex brand continues its dominance through present day. Its primary market remains the United States and Canada, although the Timex brand is sold worldwide due to its ability to capitalize on its strong brand image and reputation for quality.
One of the most successful and important features available on many Timex watches is the Indiglo backlight system. Indiglo is a brand name of Indiglo Corporation, solely owned by Timex for licensing purposes. Timex electroluminescent lamps, branded Indiglo, were introduced in 1992 in the Ironman watch line. They were an immediate success. The Indiglo lamp uniformly lights the surface of the Timex’s watch dials in a manner that makes the dial read very easily in many different light settings. In some newer watches the Indiglo backlight only lights up the numbers, rather than the entire LCD display, which is achieved by means of a specialized film that inverts the LCD transmissivity.
Today, Timex Group products are manufactured in the Far East and in Switzerland often based on technology that continues to be developed in the United States and in Germany. With a large and varied line of watches, Timex has the style for everyone. From the locker room to the board room, there is a great Timex style time-piece for you.

Easy to adjust watch, stylish looking and an adequate display. Watch band is a little difficult to adjust and needs a very thin punch or screwdriver to remove links. Read morePublished 5 days ago by Don Kramer

As other have said, the band is generously sized for big guys. My teen son has beefy wrists, so I knew this would fit him no problem. Read morePublished 21 days ago by P. Drew
I am returning this watch. First off, the band is HUGE; obviously Timex believes elephants need watches. Read morePublished 27 days ago by Wolfeye
