Product Description

The Timex Unisex Weekender Purple Slip Thru Strap Watch offers casual, yet fashionable styling for the relaxed lifestyle. The purple colored slip thru strap makes this an ideal accessory for any wardrobe. The 24-hour time and Indiglo® night-light make this timepiece truly unique. The 38mm silver-toned brass case holds the dial, which is protected by a hardened mineral crystal. For reliable timekeeping, the watch hands are powered by analog quartz movement.

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 love this watch! I needed something that would keep the metal back off my wrist, so this seemed perfect. J.Crew sells several $100 - $200 versions of this Timex. I have no idea how they are selling any when you can get this nearly identical version for less than $30. This watch has a pretty large face. I would guess it is 1.5 inches across. I have the purple watch band, which I love, and hope to purchase some of the cute J.Crew bands that they come out with - if they fit (I don't see why they wouldn't). Super cute watch!

    I love this watch. The face is very large and numbers are easy to read (even without my reading glasses). I also like the fact that it lights up with the push of a button. The band is perfect, even with my small wrists. I intend on purchasing more bands in different colors.

    I purchased this watch for my 91 yr old mother. Her last watch was not working, and could not even be wound.

    I had previously purchased her the (not the one I just referred to) a Timex "Easy Reader" watch. However, despite the name of that watch, THIS watch, the "Womens' Weekender" has a much larger face. The face is 38mm and the "Easy Reader's face is 25mm. ( Timex Women's T2H341 Easy Reader Black Leather Strap Watch 25mm dial face).

    I think Timex should consider reversing the names of these two watches!

    The purple strap for the Weekend watch (there are several colors) is a DARK purple, not bright. It almost appears black.

    Main thing is my mother loves it. Or, as she put it: "For the first time in two years I can read the watch!"

    The strap fits well. She has small wrists, and the strap does not look inappropriate, in my opinion. It has enough holes for the watch to be placed where she needs it, and it is not too large, doesn't slide around on her arm. Nor did I need to cut off part of the strap so that it would not appear far too long.

    I would suggest Timex make available a leather or faux leather band, but not discontinue the current straps. Some people prefer the leather appearance on the watch. The current strap is a soft, light material, and the entire watch is not too heavy or clunky as some are.

    I have to say we're both very happy so far with the Weekender Watch.

    I was looking for a watch that had a larger face (since that is what is "in") but didn't want to spend over $200 to test out this trend -- this watch is perfect! I had a Timex + Indiglo when I was a kid and absolutely love this watch. It is retro while still being extremely cute. I am a tiny gal (100 pounds) and found that it wasn't TOO overwhelming on my small wrist. It is large don't get me wrong, but it isn't TOO large.

    I am actually going to buy the pink watch so I can have both strap colors + with a price this low, why not?

    I ordered this watch as a gift for my wife and she has enjoyed it ever since she first put it on. Although the face is larger than other watches she wears, she says it feels light, fun and easy to wear. She likes the way it lights up so well in the dark and the large face is easy to read. It's an excellent watch for regular daily wear. It's a Timex, so you know it will keep the time well and stand up to activity.

    This is a fun watch that I wear on the weekend & for casual Fridays. I like the size & weight of it. It's a nice mix of sporty & feminine. The cloth strap is comfortable, but already has frayed a bit around the clasp "holes." (That's why I'm giving this a 4/5 stars.) I put some clear nail polish on the little bit of frayed cloth so hoping that will hold up. But I'm still very happy with this purchase and have gotten many compliments! Very happy with the price and would buy this again or for a gift.

    There are two weekender purple watches. They appeared the same except this one had more of a plum colored strap, but when I received it, the face is much larger than the ones I had seen in the stores--larger than a standard sized men's watch face. I have a small wrist and this is just too big for my comfort. Unfortunately, I didn't read the return policy and it is not worth it to return it. I will hold onto it and regift...disappointing. Now to order the other one from a place it can be easily returned for a full refund;-)
