Great watch value
on October 24, 2012
I have too many watches. So of course, I just added a second Timex Weekender to my collection. My first watch was a Timex in the 1970s, back when you still had to wind the mechanical movement. This is only my third Timex, and is easily one of the least expensive watches I own.
It's a nicely made, really good looking casual watch and a fantastic value. The black nylon band is flexible and has an orange stripe running down the center with a gray stripe on either side of the orange. The case (38mm diameter) has a glossy smoked chrome finish, and it has a stainless-steel back. The face is a nicely done black/charcoal gray color with light gray numbers. The hands are simple light-gray units. Pushing in the crown activates the Timex Indiglo backlight system that makes it really easy to read in the dark. The watch doesn't have a date display. The band has a shiny smoked-chrome buckle and two smoked-chrome loops that cleverly fold down to secure the end of the strap.
The Weekender a little smaller in diameter than most of my watches, and thinner too. It feels good on my wrist though and I think it successfully avoids screaming "I was really cheap." The strap loops under the watch case, making it easy to remove. It will fit on any of the 20mm "NATO" nylon watch bands that are available on countless colors. Timex did a great job on this Weekender, the design is classic and timeless...no pun intended. And at these prices, it is a wonderful value that looks like it costs more than it does. That doesn't happen very often these days. Highly recommended.
