Times weekender review,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Timex Unisex T2N649 "Weekender" Watch with Gray and Orange Nylon Strap (Watch)
I bought this watch as a "test" watch. This is the first watch I've owned and here are my thoughts:
-Price. As a first-time watch buyer, I didn't want to spend much money and at $30, this one was a steal.
-Size. One of my pet peeves with men's watches is their size, however this watch is small, but not so much that it looks too feminine. About 35mm diam.
-Indiglo. A Timex classic, with the press of a button, you can have a glowing dial tell you the time in a dimly lit room.
-Woven Strap. Comfortable yet feels sturdy and durable.
-TIME! Almost forgot, but the day I got it I set it to US Atomic Time (online) and 6 weeks later, I'm only 10 seconds behind Atomic Time. Pretty good for $30 Watch.
-Loud. I know that everybody has said it about this watch already, but this is a noticeably loud watch. TICK-TOCK!
-WR30m I realize this is a cheap watch, but it would be nice if it were more water resistant, say 100m so that you could swim while wearing it like the design suggests to the wearer.
-Shiny Case. It's not really a CON, but the picture in the ad suggests a "brushed aluminum" finish. Not the case (no pun intended). This is a shiny, mirror-like finish so if that doesn't float your boat, don't get it.
Overall, this watch has been great and I highly recommend it to anyone trying to get into watch-wearing or just needs a cheap, classic looking daily watch.
