1.0 out of 5 stars Nice but Very poor quality, January 11, 2009
This review is from: Timex Men's T20461 "Easy Reader" Stainless Steel Watch (Watch)
The watch sweats when exposed to moisture. It is definitely not waterproof or even water resistent to 50ft. Take a walk in the fog and you can bring the experience back home inside the watch. I guess this can be romantic for some people. Mine actually rusted inside. I even opened it whenever it fogged up, dried it out for a couple days, cleaned the sealing surfaces etc....
The other thing is the band is really poor quality. It dents very easily. Bump your arm and it will be dented. And I'm not talking about pounding nails in with the band. Just brush up against a door and its dented.
I was real disappointed. The watch isn't even a 6 months old. Of course I can't find the 1"x1" warrantee card I stapled my reciept onto. I'd buy another model or brand.
It's too bad because I really liked the watch.

I've had one for 7 years and it has never sweated. I live in a dry climate but have worked in very humid areas with no problem. I wonder if it has been opened, or if it got wet with the stem part way out.

You might have a leak somewhere. Mine has been in a pool, underwater doing dishes, wet when washing the car, etc, etc...
Mine is a few years old.......I got it at a Kmart going out of business sale.
I agree the band does dent easily.

One of the rectangles popped off one of my bands. I actually have 2 of these watches. The second one I bought for $5.00 at an estate sale. That one I had a brown leather band installed. I havea very skinny wrist and the stretch band is a bit loose..
