From the manufacturer
We feel most alive when we’re furthest from life’s routine. The air seems fresher when we ski unmarked slopes, define our own trail, or escape to our secluded fishing spot. Creating a relationship with nature nourishes like no technology can. Timex® Expedition® watches reflect the secluded terrain that inspires adventure, and are built to endure the depths and elements you subject yourself to.
Reminiscent of World War II-era aviation equipment, the distinctive Timex Men's T49874 Expedition Military Field Brown Dial Brown Leather Strap Watch offers a rare blend of style and strength that is simultaneously rugged and timeless. This exceptionally versatile watch is equally appropriate in a cockpit, corporate office or on a backcountry trail. Featuring a brown dial, a brown genuine leather band, and Indiglo® night light for low lighting conditions, this watch is powered by a high quality quartz movement and is water resistant to a depth of 330 feet (100 meters).
Timex Group B.V. is one of the best-known American watch companies. Timex's U.S. headquarters are located in Middlebury Connecticut and it has substantial operations in China, the Philippines and India and full scale sales companies in Canada, the UK, France and Mexico.
The company began in 1854 as Waterbury Clock in Connecticut's Naugatuck Valley, known during the nineteenth century as the "Switzerland of America." Sister company Waterbury Watch manufactured the first inexpensive mechanical pocket watch in 1880. During World War I, Waterbury began making wristwatches, which had only just become popular, and in 1933 it made history by creating the first Mickey Mouse clock under license from Walt Disney, with Mickey's hands pointing the time.
During World War II, Waterbury renamed itself U.S. Time Company. In 1950 the company introduced a wristwatch called the Timex. Over the next three decades, Timex was sold through a series of advertisements which emphasized its durability by putting the watch through "torture tests," such as falling over the Grand Coulee Dam or being strapped to the propeller of an outboard motor, with the slogan "It takes a licking and keeps on ticking." With the help of former Olympic broadcaster, spokesman John Cameron Swayze, sales took off. The company later became Timex Corporation, then Timex Group and, to date, has sold over one billion watches.
The company has remained very competitive and the Timex brand continues its dominance through present day. Its primary market remains the United States and Canada, although the Timex brand is sold worldwide due to its ability to capitalize on its strong brand image and reputation for quality.
One of the most successful and important features available on many Timex watches is the Indiglo backlight system. Indiglo is a brand name of Indiglo Corporation, solely owned by Timex for licensing purposes. Timex electroluminescent lamps, branded Indiglo, were introduced in 1992 in the Ironman watch line. They were an immediate success. The Indiglo lamp uniformly lights the surface of the Timex’s watch dials in a manner that makes the dial read very easily in many different light settings. In some newer watches the Indiglo backlight only lights up the numbers, rather than the entire LCD display, which is achieved by means of a specialized film that inverts the LCD transmissivity.
Today, Timex Group products are manufactured in the Far East and in Switzerland often based on technology that continues to be developed in the United States and in Germany. With a large and varied line of watches, Timex has the style for everyone. From the locker room to the board room, there is a great Timex style time-piece for you.

Edit: After wearing the watch for a week I have to retract what I originally said about the illumination; not only can you read the numbers when you use the indiglo feature, the watch glows in the dark on its own for at least a few hours. I wore this watch on a cruise and got several compliments on how it looked. One person asked who made the watch and could not believe it was a Timex.
I needed a brown watch and I figgered its only a 40 dollar Timex, not exactally breaking the bank. So i orderd it just to have something brown to go with a particular outfit, all i really expected is that it would be brown - didn't really have high hopes, didn't really care if it even kept time. When I got it however I ended up liking it so much more than I thought I would!
I hadn't noticed that it only has the minutes, not hour numbers. At first I was confused, but I think it makes this watch pretty unique and cool. Its just the right size on my wrist and the band feels and looks great, makes for a very nice wear. I especially like the stitching on the band. Keeps time well enough and I think it looks very nice, id say that it looks more expensive than it is.
I think that this is a good quality, good looking watch for a very reasonable price. It certainly changed my mind about Timex and I will consider buying another Timex in the future! If your on the fence about this, go for it. For the price of a parking ticket you can get a really cool watch that will get noticed.
9.5/10 really exceeded expectations!
