Nice watch, misleading picture and description - 3.5 stars
on November 6, 2014
This is my second Timex Flyback Chronograph, the first being a T2P381, which is comfortable to wear, keeps time well, and I like the unique look, display and features. Overall, the Flyback Chronograph series "look and feel" is above its price point.
I would prefer conventional luminous markings, and the "Indiglo" feature is a bit lame, but better than no illumination at all.
The quality of the band doesn't live up to the rest of the watch.
I didn't "need" another Timex Flyback Chronograph, but the watch was visually appealing, and when Amazon put it on sale for 20% off, I couldn't keep from pressing the BUY button....
The watch I received has the correct part number (T2N931DH) on the box, however is visually different than the picture and the description (see pics attached). I suspect that Amazon used a Timex stock photo for the posting, but the Timex website does not list the T2N931DH watch, and web searches for other sites show similar pics to the one Amazon posted. :(
The Amazon description reads: "Silver-tone watch in stainless steel with gold-tone contrasts..."
The watch received is MATTE BLACK. Nice looking, but not what I expected.
The hands in the photo show distinctive yellow/gold highlights that contrast with the black face and the white hands. The yellow is actually polished gold that must be positioned exactly right in the correct light to look like the photo...
The band in the picture is a medium brown leather with a patina finish. The band on the watch is actually a very dark brown, nearly black, matte finish.
None of these are deal breakers, and I still think the watch is a good value, but the watch I ordered was not the watch I received...
Overall, the watch as advertised would be is a 4.5 star (half a star off for the band), but the borderline "bait and switch" advertising cost another star... Since 3.5 stars is not an option, I gave it four...
