This is a simple, inexpensive (not cheap) design that matches any attire for any occasion. The original band doesn't last long, but that's OK because there are a million choices out there. The light is nice if you're in a movie theater or some place not well light. The time is always precise. I have another one in a dark face (sort of charcoal) so that I can mix and match. I highly recommend this.

I bought this for a valentine's day gift for my husband. He loves it! The one problem that he kept having was the date kept changing at noon. To solve that problem you have to change the time. The clock will think it is midnight when it is only noon, so that is why that happens. He has had it for a month now and no problems :)

Timex T49870 is everything I expected in the watch and less expensive than my previous selection. It has a face that is lighted when I need light and not with luminesence that fades with time. Not too large, not weighted down with jewels. Large enough to read. What I like in a watch.

Watch preference is obviously a matter of taste, so either you like the looks or you don't. I like the looks, and it keeps time. Can't go much further than that. I did darken the band by dabbing some baseball-mitt oil on it, and in doing so, may have preserved it a little longer. As you probably know, leather watchbands can start to smell like dirty socks as they absorb sweat day after day. I've ordered a new watch band, and may try treating the inside of the band with something that doesn't absorb sweat (something with a wax to it? Lip balm?--Dunno for sure), but will still darken the band with some kind of oil. I'm told that neatsfoot oil will deteriorate the stitches, so I'll probably go back to the baseball glove conditioner. Sorry to ramble on, but the short version is that I like the numeral face instead of the slashmark face, and the overall look is pretty unpretentious. And, did I mention, it keeps time.

I'm here ordering a replacement for this same watch. The one I have now I bought at a department store. The watch is great, keeps good time and I like the looks, the light and the numbers. I had another one of these before the one I have now. The weak point of this watch is the band. I have the one I have now because the band wore out and broke on the one I had before this one and I'm buying a new one today because this band did the same thing. I can buy a band on Amazon for $13, but between the hassle of putting it on and probably a battery replacement in the near future, I figured it was better to just buy the whole watch for $33.

Great watch for back country skiing and bushwacking. Great with rainy weather and forgetful dips in the sea. Unlike some other very good Timex models this one has a firm clasp and strap holder which can take a lot more punishment from the elements. Inexpensive (through Amazon; I've seen it for sixteen dollars more at my local outdoors shop and it glows it the dark when you want it to. What's not to like? It even looks great.

I like this watch a lot its an upgrade from my last Timex. It is not easy to set the date and the winding knob for a left hand wearer is larger than my last Timex and digs a little into my wrist. The leather band is well made and I expect it will last with my rigorous outdoor wear but also expect it to spoil with sweat and grime and I'll probably replace it with a cloth band.

I've owned the watch for a week or so now, so I can't really comment on long-term durability and reliability. So far it seems to offer great value though. Nice design, gives off a rugged feeling. I think for the price the item offers very good value.

The light failed after using it three times?? Other than the light it does keep time but I am worried about the longevity. I thought Timex would take a beating and keep going but like everything else that was back when they made things to last. It is hard to find quality items that are worth your hard earned money!
