5.0 out of 5 stars this watch literally saved the day, December 21, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Timex® Men's Analog Camper Watch #T41711 (Watch)
my dad had this watch and wore it for years (like years upon years--- i remember him wearing the same watch when i was 5) well just a few months ago it broke and he has not been able to find another one (mind you, he never gets online and doesn't know that you can find just about anything on the internet) my mom bought him a more sporty version by timex from wal-mart, and he wears it, but is secretly broken inside because it wasn't "his" watch. i decided to buy him the timex expedition in green canvas because it is identical to the watch he had that had broke and give it to him for Christmas. so today, my mom and dad were late for lunch because they were at radio shack trying to get his wal-mart timex fixed (apparently the second hand broke---long story short, it's shot)he looked all sad and depressed because he was without ANY watch--- he looked like a beat puppy when showing me his naked wrist with a tan mark where the watches had once resided. and it just so happened that the brand new timex expedition original "his" watch i had ordered came in the mail THIS MORNING!!!! so i gave him his Christmas present early and i kid you not, i'm pretty sure i saw a single tear drop roll sentimentally down his stubbled cheek. it was like something you see in the movies. epic. thanks timex for making such a nostalgic memory. and thank you for creating such a watch that would move my salty hardass dad. i know it made his day. and it made my day seeing a simple thing like a watch (a great quality watch) bring a little joy to an old man :)

I just had to say, this is probably one of the most epic reviews I've ever seen! :) I'm glad your dad is happy with his new watch.

As you get older Sameness grows more important. Great story ! Timex should do a commercial on this as Timex is a part of our lives at one time or the other
