Top Customer Reviews
1. Look at the dial—white arabics with inner 24 hour arabics on a black background. Clean, timeless, easy to read.
2. Look at how nicely they integrated the date window into the 24 hour ring. They could have just slapped a white date wheel under there, but with the choice of black, the dial is so beautifully balanced. The date is instantly available if you want it, but otherwise if just disappears.
3. At 40mm the case isn't exactly vintage proportions, but it doesn't look unusually large on my 6.5 inch wrist. Believe me--I am hyper sensitive to oversized watches. This watch looks really nice on the wrist, and I think it would work well for most wrists.
4. The large crown really adds to the vintage vibe.
5. The strap is fine. I bought the tan version because I didn't want the yellow seconds hand of the olive strapped version. While the tan strap is comfortable, the color doesn't look good on me (according to my better half). No worries. At 20mm, the world is your oyster. A quick change to an olive zulu band solved my problems. I really think buying the tan strap version is the way to go just for the white seconds hand. I think the olive strapped version has a grey finish to the case as opposed to the brushed stainless look of the tan strap version. You may like that look. I think it's cool, but I'll gladly give it up to lose that yellow seconds hand.
6. Ticking volume has been fine. I briefly owned a Weekender that ticked very loudly. This one is much quieter. Not as quiet as my nicer quartzes, but I hardly notice it ticking on my wrist. It seems to get louder when it take it off and out it on a table.
7. Lume on the hands is decent, but I haven't tested the duration yet. But with Indiglo, I guess I don't care.
Highly recommended if you like field watches. It's very classic looking. I looked down at my wrist the other day and thought, "Man, that looks good. Some designer at Timex really has a passion for classic field watches." And then I thought, "Oh, yeah, what time is it?" (You have to be a bit of a watch nut to relate to that one.)
1. Indiglo face with luminescent hands (see attached photos)
2. Gorgeous! styling, classic "pilot watch"
3. Cool dial, unobtrusive branding
4. Date window, settable without changing time
5. Durable, metal construction, mineral crystal
6. Hacking second hand (stops moving when setting minutes)
7. Super accurate, no gain/loss after six weeks!
8. Awesome leather strap
1. Loud ticking
2. Jittery second hand
3. No manual included (get it online)
I have two versions of this watch. One I gave to my seven year old boy and he's not put a scratch on it in over a month, which is pretty impressive. He did get paint on the crystal by smashing his wrist into a wall, but with some elbow grease I cleaned it all off, and no scratch. Love that mineral crystal! The other one I gave to my wife and she really prefers it to the Seiko automatic (mechanical) I got her last year. It's smaller, lighter, and she likes the styling more. Which is odd as it's definitely more of a "man's watch", even to the extent of military styling. But it's been the trend for women to wear men's watches, so who am I to judge?
My only real complaint is that it's noticeably loud. At night when trying to sleep the ticking is quite audible, a steady tick... tick... tick... once per second (never a tock). One of the great things about the indigo lighting is being able to use the watch in the early AM to see if it's close to wake-up time, obviating the need for a bright bedside clock. But with the loud ticking, this watch isn't really great to wear at night. A pretty serious flaw that cost it a star in this reviewer's opinion. Another negative, the tick marks only perfectly align partway around the dial, which is a common flaw with budget quartz watches.
Other than that, it's pretty awesome. The time was set in mid December, and as of late January, it remains dead on accurate. That's outstanding for any watch, even quartz. The hacking second hand makes it easy to synchronize the time to an accurate source. I do have a suspicion you get the "luck of the draw" in the accuracy department, however, so don't blame me if yours is less. The styling is superb, in my my opinion. The leather strap is tough, but soft, far more comfortable than the nylon and better looking to boot, not yielding the "military" vibe but ditching any scratchy stiffness. The strap alone is well worth twenty five smackaroos. Keep in mind the great value, and forget about the ticks or the jittery second hand. It's accurate and good looking, a great choice.
I've attached two pics, both showing the luminescent hands charged up, one with indiglo off and the other showing indiglo activated.
TLDR; loud ticking, but great value for the price, having otherwise minor flaws only a watch nerd would notice, being simply gorgeous with a fabulous leather strap.
