Nice looking casual watch, can't beat the price.
on August 14, 2011
I have too many watches. So of course, I just added this 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 second Timex, and is easily the least expensive watch I own. It's a really nicely made, good looking casual watch. Its gray nylon band has an orange stripe running down the center. The case (38mm diameter) is finely chrome plated, and it has a stainless-steel back. The face is a nicely done silvery-gray color with white numbers. The hands are simple chrome 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 chrome buckle and two chrome loops that cleverly fold down to secure the end of the strap. It's a little smaller in diameter than most of my watches, and thinner too. It feels good on my wrist though and I think it avoids screaming "I was really cheap." The strap loops under the watch case, making it easy to remove. At the store where I purchased this watch, there were extra straps available in different colors for those who like to customize. A welcome addition to my watch collection, and one that won't break the bank.
