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.
A sporty, durable watch, the Timex Men's T49854 Expedition Rugged Digital Vibration Alarm Brown Nylon Strap Watch belongs to the great outdoors. The 43mm case and dial creates a fantastic appearance on this sleek, stylish watch. The brown nylon strap helps to bring the look together for something that is sure to catch the eye. The digital display features a high quality quartz movement and is water resistant to a depth of 330 feet (100 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.

I purchased this watch as a replacement for a previous model which had both the Indiglo feature and a compass. Read morePublished 10 days ago by Henry Carnaby
Has worked fine for about 6 months so far, although at one point it acted up. Fortunately, simply removing and re-inserting the battery took care of whatever issue there was. Read morePublished 20 days ago by John Doe
I chose this watch because it has a vibration alarm. I am usually a heavy sleeper and I wanted something different then the usual beep. The vibrations do the trick for me. Read morePublished 23 days ago by Bluejeep
All functions work but band had broke off twice now in 30 days. Will not buy again. Love features but watch casing chips easily. Watch is now unusable.Published 1 month ago by blurunner
It's cool and works well, but the watch resets itself if you accidentally push two buttons at once, and that happens about twice a week. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Mary
