nice quality watch for the money,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Timex Men's T2N694 "Elevated Classics" Watch with Black Resin Strap (Watch)
I've always been a fan of Timex watches, and as someone who recently made the transition from metal bands to the rubber and resin straps, this watch is a perfect blend of function and fashion. It's a simple but attractive watch without any fancy bells and whistles....and the rubber band is pretty comfortable and fits well if you have smaller wrists. It's also a good size and weight; not too big and not too heavy. Overall, this is a very nice watch for every day practical use that looks good, feels good, and an excellent watch for the price.
I was going through my purchases and remembered this watch from when I bought it about 2 or 3 years ago and giving it some thought, I decided to update the review to mention the bezel does NOT rotate and the smaller minutes inside the face are NOT military hours. I wondered why they would put a red hour marker on the bezel and not have it rotate to mark time? I think it kind of defeats the purpose of putting a red indicator on the bezel if it's not going to turn, and secondly, having the smaller minutes inside the face is redundant; no need to have more minute markers inside when they're already on the outside. If anything, having military (24 hour) time inside the face would have been useful, but with these two 'design flaws' I give this watch 4 out of 5 stars. I originally bought this as a work watch (law enforcement) and was a little let down with the non-rotating bezel and not having the 24 hour markers but those are the only two 'bad' things I can say about this watch. The battery is still going too, by the way, which is more than I can say about my two year old Victorinox Swiss Army chrono that needs a new battery!
