This is the first watch that I have ever purchased. I had been looking for a watch that would fit my wrists and that would look good in both a business casual and a casual setting. My wrists are 5 inches around, and so I knew that watches with case sizes above 35mm would likely look oversized and a little ridiculous on me. It might be unorthodox, but I want to note that I was looking for a watch that wasn't particularly feminine. The aesthetics of masculine watches appeal to me much more than that of feminine-marketed watches. I also prefer understated, simpler watches to the overdesigned multi-function quadruple-dial animal-patterned-leather bling look, so this watch seemed like a promising possibility, especially for the price of $30 thanks to the Timex Amazon sale.

I was at first a little concerned about the leather detailing shown in the Amazon image, but looking at the watch in person it isn't excessive and fits my preferences. The strap is slightly long for my wrist--for a snug fit, I use the second from the last tightest hole in the watch, and the end of the strap is about half an inch away from the lugs of the watch. Fortunately, the watch has a leather keeper, so that can be adjusted to keep the strap from sticking out.

The face of the watch ends up at a very good size for my small wrists. Proportionally it looks very good, neither too small for my wrists that it looks too feminine, nor too large that it looks like a child wearing an adult's watch (as tends to be the case if smaller-wristed people don some types of men's watches).

If I had a larger wrist I would have purchased the unisex Weekender. As it is, this is not a bad compromise. I see in some of the reviews that there are people who thought the watch was too big or didn't look right. I think that this watch might not be ideal for a woman with small wrists who wants a girly watch. Rather, this watch is pleasingly subtle and has a classic appeal that plenty of more expensive watches seem to lack. I'm very satisfied with my purchase.

This is a great looking watch. I got it for my girlfriend and it is too big to look right on her but she loves the look of the band so much she wears it. Numbers easy to see.

This watch is too large for a petit person. It's not just the band itself that's troublesome, the face of the watch is huge. If you're a large person, it would be perfect.

Looks lovely, but not well made. The crown, or outer knob that is used to set the watch, just fell off. I am hoping that Amazon will allow me to return it even though I do not have the original package.

I am very surprised at Timex. Very poorly made - don't buy it.

I don't wear this watch every day, so it took me a while to notice that it was losing minutes. At first I thought I was setting it by different clocks; then I thought it must be the battery, but it was not. The jeweler said that it would be about $55 to repair, more than I had paid for the watch. I bought the watch in April 2014; the return/replacement expiration date was in May, long before I realized there was a problem.

This watch is exactly what I wanted. Watch face is an easy to read size without being too large. The band seems to be well made and I like the design. The feature I was really after was the indigo light. It works great, making it easy to read at night. I strongly recommend this watch.

Watch is very easy to read & stylish. Was not happy when I tried to reset time & crown came out too far. Ended up taking it to local jeweler for quick repair or would have had to send it back to Amazon. Hope it will not ever do this again as otherwise really like it. Thx.

This watch is classic, comfortable and casual - just what I was looking for. The strap looks like something found on watches of a much higher price. I'm very pleased with the item and the service rendered by the supplier.
