Fulfill your need for speed with this Timex Expedition Premium Collection chronograph watch, which features a bezel with an engraved tachymeter to help you measure time over distance. Its rugged construction makes for a very practical watch for any adventure, and the chronograph stopwatch can measure events down to 1/20 of a second. The large, round watch case measures 40mm wide (1.57 inches), and it's complemented by a sporty, water-resistant leather strap. Other features include luminous hands, an easy-set alarm (rotate inner bezel to set alarm time), and water resistance to 100 meters (330 feet)--offering protection from accidental splashes as well suitable for swimming, snorkeling, and light recreational diving.
The Indiglo night-light uniformly lights the surface of the watch dial using patented blue electroluminescent lighting technology. It uses less battery power than most other watch illumination systems, enabling your watch battery to last longer. The Night Mode feature allows you to illuminate the Indiglo night-light for 3 seconds with any button press, regardless of the mode or function.
With the launch of its first watch in November 1974, Casio entered the wristwatch market at a time when the watch industry had just discovered digital technology. As a company with cutting-edge electronic technology developed for pocket calculators, Casio entered this field confident that it could develop timepieces that would lead the market.
Today, Casio is focusing its efforts on solar-powered radio-controlled watches: the built-in solar battery eliminates the nuisance of replacing batteries, atomic timekeeping means the users never have to reset the time. Recently, Casio launched a series of Bluetooth watches that sync to the users cell phone to automatically update the time. Casio is always moving time forward.

The first thing to realize is that the traditional long second hand isn't the primary time-of-day second hand. It functions only as the Chronograph second hand. The time-of-day second hand is the sub-dial at 6 o'clock. The sub-dial at 10 o'clock is the chronograph minute hand and the sub-dial at 2 o'clock is 1/10 second chronograph hand.
The Crown(button at 3 o'clock) has 3 positions(4 if you include the indiglo); for the sake of explanation: normal, out-one, and out-two. What prevented me from figuring this watch out sooner was the fact that I thought I would break the crown off by pulling it to out-two, so much so that I was certain my watch didn't have 3 positions. It does in fact have 3 positions, though. That's one small complaint I have-it's kinda hard to pull it to the out-two position; it may just be my watch though.
To start, you need to zero the chronograph dials. To reset the chronograph sub-dials to 0, first pull out Crown to out-one, repeatedly press the button at 8'O Clock to zero the Minutes Sub-dial. Pull the Crown again to out-two, press the button at 8'O Clock to set the 1/10-Second sub-dial. Press the crown all in from the normal position for indiglo.

However, I seemed to have a need for a casual "sport-type" watch and this Timex Expedition fit the bill. I'm not a watch snob and the Timex name and quality is fine by me. The watch is very sturdy and keeps excellent time as one would expect with any watch. To my eye, the black on black of this model is very appealing. This is a great looking watch. In making this purchase I decided that I would try a chronograph because there have been a few occasions where I thought it would be handy to have this ability. I used it once already for that function and it was great to have the chrono dials. Plus, what the heck, they look cool. The Indiglo night light function and alarm settings are a nice plus.
All in all, a really nice looking functional watch at a great price.
One caveat however...and it has to do with my earlier comment about the sleeve cuff issue. Forget wearing this rather thick watch with a dress shirt. I even have problems with casual button up shirts with sleeves and cuff buttons. I am sitting here writing this with the buttons on my sleeve cuff unbuttoned. When buttoned first, even at the "loose" button, I cannot get the shirt over the watch. If I button the cuff after I put the watch on I can't get the cuff over the watch to see the time! I guess this watch, or those similar in thickness, are only meant to wear with short-sleeve shirts or stretch buttonless shirts.
Thank you Grady for your review...it helped sell me on this watch.
Substantial feel but not too heavy. Leather band is comfortable and attractive. Can select to move only the hour hand and that's handy when crossing time zones or when setting the calendar date. Alarm works well and is easy to set. Wish the minute hand was a bit thicker; it sometimes take a half-second or so to discern it on the busy watch face. Would have preferred a rotating minute bezel rather than the fixed tachymeter bezel but not a big deal.
Some have complained that the chronograph second hand doesn't reset to the 12:00 position. That's because they played with the buttons before reading all the instructions and accidentally pressed the time-set crown while the second hand was resetting (like I did). This is easily fixed by pressing the time-set crown just as the second hand crosses the 12 position (or whatever position you want the second hand to reset to).
