Product Description

Product Description

Ideal for high-performance athletes or occasional swimmers, the Timex Men's T5K496 Ironman Traditional 50-Lap Black/Silver-Tone/Blue Resin Strap Watch is a trendy, durable watch with classic styling rooted deep in Ironman tradition. With a wide variety of useful functions including a daily/weekday/weekend alarm, 50-lap memory recall, 99-lap counter, 24-hour countdown timer, and stopwatch with lap and split times, this sports watch is also water resistant to 330 feet (100 meters). A stylishly contoured silver-tone resin case transitions smoothly to the blue resin bezel and black band, and this Ironman watch wraps comfortably around the wrist and fastens with a traditional buckle. The digital dial with Indiglo® night light can be read in any light conditions and offers a month, day, and date display along with options for different time zones.

The Timex Story

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.

After receiving my first Timex Ironman watch as a gift more than 20 years ago, I refuse to ever spend a day without one.

Overall this watch is dynamite! The blue on silver face is stylish the LARGE readout is easy and clean to view and the face is sleek and conforms to your wrist...in comparison to other "sport watches" that are bulky, have much smaller readouts, are 3 to 4 times as expensive and always get caught up when you wear long sleeve shirts. To be honest, this face is a little bit larger than the traditional Timex Ironman watches so beware if you have skinny or smaller wrists. Timekeeping is about 100% accurate based on time.gov over a 3-4 week period of time. The only drawback is the face gets scratched easily, but what can you expect for a $35 watch??? that's the tradeoff. I recommend.

I do like the Timex Ironman watches, but after one to two years the wrist bands seem to break, the retaining band breaks, or the clasp breaks. The fact that I keep buying them should signify that the replacement cycle although frustrating, is worth it for me. The watch itself is always reliable, it's the strap that isn't reliable for the long-term.

The watch itself is mid-sized and comfortable to wear. The band, while comfortable, tapers too much for my taste. I like a little beefier watch band.

The dial is a little deceptive in that the the display is just as large as the 150 lap sleek ironman that I have but the face is smaller.

If you're looking for a light weight, mid-sized, nice looking watch and don't mind a narrow band, this is a strong contender to consider.

I bought this watch at almost half price of a chain sports store. It is nice looking watch with easy to read digits. Easy to operate. I think Timex makes great sporty watches that are the easiest watches to operate. Casio and citizen make goog watches but every time you need to look at the manual to chane settings not so with Timex. For my money Timex is the best watch in the market.

Great watch but the clasp broke off band after 2-3 times of wearing watch. I repleaced my old 10 plus year old Ironman watch because the band was about to break and this band broke within a few times. I called Amazon and they would not replace watch but sent a free band replacement. I had to take the band to a jeweler to try to attach the band to the watch. The jewler stated that the band did not fit. Now, I have 2 items that are useless.

I like the watch. Good water resistance and features. The only complaint I have is the upper line of the display is partially obscured by the Ironman logo. Still useable, but come on. The picture in the ad doesn't display this quirk, so maybe it's just mine. If so, I'd give it 4 stars. I'd give it 5, but the watch band isn't the greatest.
