Product Description

There is only one Timex Ironman Triathlon 30-Lap watch. Don't swim, bike, run, jump, climb, throw, or kick without one. It comes equipped with a stainless steel case, and the durable stainless steel band fastens with a tenacious fold-over clasp with safety. The matte gray dial face is prominently embellished with easy-to-read digital numerals, and for additional time-keeping efficiency, there is a handy day-date-and-month calendar and a three-alarm setting. Other features include a daily alarm and an Occasion Mode reminder. Exercise enthusiasts will swoon over the 30-lap recall accessory. Powered by digital-quartz movement, this timepiece is stylish enough for a weekend warrior, yet technical enough for an extreme athlete. This watch is water resistant up to 330 feet.

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.

All have been great watches.
B. Watson
The plastic case is rubbish- the band pin tore out of it, requiring the watch to be sent in for replacement (only had the watch for 2 months when this happened).

I previously owned one like this for over 4 years and it held up well.

I've owned many of the Timex Ironman watches including 4 of this style with the metal bands over the last 20 or so years. All have been great watches. I bought this watch only because my present watch battery is dying and the casing is looking aged - letters are worn and faded - not as dressy as when new, but still a great watch.
However, this watch has a design flaw - a weak point in the pin where the band connects to the watch. I bought my watch in November and the pin broke twice - within 3 weeks each time. Both of the times the watch had slipped down against against where my hand meets my wrist. When I used my hand to get up from sitting on a bleacher seat, the leverage from the hand against the band snapped the pin. The second break happened in a similar matter. Nothing unusually stressful. Never had this happen with any of my other Timex watches. The design flaw is that the pin is not replaceable by the user. There's no way to get to the pin or to replace it. Fortunately, I was able to return my watch where I bought it each time it broke.(The store agreed they couldn't fix it). The last time was for good. I immediately had a new $4 battery put in my older Ironman and it's working like new again. Still faded, but working great. Hope Timex can correct this flaw with the band because I like the way this watch looks and functions. You expect Ironman watches AND their bands to be tougher than this.

I did not want to believe the review of B. Watson (Atlanta, GA) who said that the bracelet has a design flaw and that it breaks too easily than normal. He was right!!

I bought the watch and, 12 days after buying it, the bracelet broke!!! I just moved my arm higher within the arm of my coat and the watch was in contact only with the inside of my coat and it broke. I did not do any movement that was violent in any way or force anything in any way when I moved my arm and the watch was on me. I could not believe it!! Very shocking!!

I will ask a refund and I will try to find a watch that can be fully reliable for both the bracelet and the watch itself.

I would have liked to try the watch again but I am now too convinced that the bracelet has a design flaw to even care getting a replacement.

The irony is that the bracelet looks strong! The problem is that it is as strong as its weakest links!

Conclusion: the bracelet has a design flaw and you will break it even if you happen to be like me extremely careful with the way you use your watch. The watch itself seems fine, only the bracelet is the problem!

I liked the looks of this watch, however the band has a flaw. The band which you would think is strong cause its stainless steel. but the where it connects to the watch itself is plastic and very fragile. I broke mine with minimal effort. I did however got another timex the band is very strong but it is analog and digital and the battery doesnt last long cause although the digital part is working the analog is very slow. Just goes to show you timex isnt into takin a licking and keeps on ticking but rather keep for a year and part of this watch stops working just so you will buy another.

It's a good watch, but don't expect to be wearing it for long. Mine fell off my wrist after just 2 months. Unlike some of the other reviewers, I haven't been able to find a replacement pin that fits. I can't even find a replacement band. The band is unique and I have searched without any luck of finding one. This watch was a big disappointment. Don't wast your money on a wrist watch that you will end up carrying in your pocket.

The case cracked at the pin after 18 months due to the cheap plastic case. I knew I should have returned it, when I saw the case was not metal, despite the misleading product description. The warrenty ran out after a year, so now I cant send it back even though its clearly a fualty product not the result of normal wear. Dont buy this watch the cheap case cracked off at the ear for the band and cannot be repaired.

I have had a Citizen digital LCD that gave good service for many years!
It finally went bad and I started a search for a similar type. Out of all the watches researched online, this Timex T5H981 was the only watch that was what I was looking for. I was amazed that the price was only $37.45... It is very well constructed of stainless steel and the stainless wristband clasp is also very high quality, the same as other watches costing hundreds of dollars! It has many features beyond which I expected, but has the main ones which are; easy to set, a chronograph, a countdown timer and ability to set the time in 3 different time zones. The Indiglo backlite makes it very easy to read the LCD display at night.
Amazon's free shipping was very fast, I received the watch in less than a week after ordering.
The only con is that Timex recommends that a jeweler replace the battery when needed inasmuch as the backplate is attached with 4 phillips head type screws which are extremely small. This should not be too much of a problem as the CR2025 type battery should last 5 years or more.

While the watch part functions perfectly, the band and casing leave much to be desired. Within 5 months, the silver paint on the main watch face has flaked off and the wristband turns my wrist black. I have taken to painting the underside of the band with clear nail polish until I can buy a different watch. Don't waste your money.
