HOW THE HELL DID THIS HAPPEN?
on June 22, 2012
Well, I must admit I was looking for something of a different style besides my diver and tactical (tritium tube) watches, and got bit by the pilot style watches bug. I almost dropped the hammer on a Hamilton Mechanical 38mm, but the shipper took forever (5+ days) to get the item processed soooooooo.......I gave up and found this little gem by accident (don't worry I am in NO way going to try and compare a Hamilton to a Timex, I would get flammed in about 30 seconds after this review was posted); however, I was extremely taken back by the style of the watch and for the price I figured what the heck? Upon receiving the watch, the first thing I did was lose the crap strap that came with it and throw on a maratac zulu 4 ringer (20mm). I have worn the watch for 2 days straight and it has replaced some of my more higher-end watches for a daily beater. Accuracy seems to be holding between 0 and -1 seconds/day for the past 48 hours and I am completely satisfied with that coming from a sub 50 dollar watch. The case is very robust (and yes it is stainless steel!), indiglo function works as it should, and bravo to Timex for the dial configuration. The seconds hand actually "NAILS" every indice marker perfectly (my Tawatec and SMW watches can't even do that!)All in all I would say if you are in the market for something as a work/beater/weekend style of watch that keeps a pilot style look then look no further.
