Simple Elegant and Well Made.,
This review is from: Timex Men's T2N647 "Weekender" Watch with Black Nylon Strap (Watch)
I purchased this as a replacement for a Timex Camper which was also a great watch. This watch is heavier and larger than I expected but looks great and can be worn with everything from a t-shirt to a suit. The hands do not glow but the face is backlit, something i prefer because it's easier to see when you need it. It's simple and usable and it is the best watch I've seen in the price range that is a simple, modest, and sleek design. The case is well made as is the band. However, I have to keep the watch at the last hole in order to wear it at the appropriate tightness. So if you have a large wrist you may consider purchasing a replacement band. I wanted something I could wear with anything that wouldn't get hurt if it got dropped in water and would hold up for years. So far this has been nothing but a great purchase and I would highly recommend it to anyone. On a side not I picked mine up for around $32 shipped on ebay so look around because I promise you can do better than the price listed on the timex website.

Thanks for the great review. I have one question, though. I've never had a watch with a slip through design like this and I'm used to having the metal backside against my wrist. Is the different full strap comfortable to wear? Does it take any getting used to?

The band is very comfortable and a pretty good material. I wear mine every single day and there's no discomfort from the material. I suppose it may wear out on the backside faster than the rest but I've had it for several months and there's really no signs of wear except on the first hole.

Appreciate the review and photos. I have the women's version -- which is the exact same size, but the face is white and the band is fuschia (pink). I'm ordering this black version for my son and I spotted your photos while reading the reviews. Really fantastic shots and would have been so helpful for me when I was considering ordering the "girlie" version last week. Thanks for posting them. I'm really happy with this watch. It's an awesome well-made timepiece. Definitely large on a women -- but large in a fun stylish oversized way. I've taken to calling it Big Ben. Can't wait to see the guy version in black.
