The Timex Men's T2N751 Weekender Slip Thru Strap Watch is an excellent timepiece to add to your collection. Featuring a white dial and a nylon band, this watch is the epitome of style and utility.
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.

Keep an eye out on Groupon or just in your wishlist, sometimes this watch and others will go on $19.99 sales. If you must have a white-face weekender, that's the only time I can truly say it's worth it. But otherwise, it's just kind of unreliable and gives me a little bit too much problem compared to any other color in the Weekender series, or any other brand of watch I own.
2) It is very easy to remove the band and machine wash it in a mesh bag to keep the band looking clean;
3) Others have commented that the band is a little short - I agree, but it fits on the third last hole on my wrist so that's OK;
4) The face is clear and simple and the Indiglo illumination is perfect for viewing in low-light conditions;
5) Tick is audible up close, but not perceptible in most situations.
I look forward to adding other colour combos of this watch to my fleet.
I am very happy with this watch.
Let's start off with what Timex Weekenders are not: fancy, buy-it-for-life designer timepieces with fine crafted precision timekeepery.
This is unabashedly a casual watch, and shouldn't be expected to be anything else.
So, this is what it is: A solid-built, attractive budget watch that can be worn in a variety of casual situations (including but not limited to: going to the store, going to class, going to the game, mowing the lawn, baking a souffle, and writing Amazon reviews). You can (and totally should) pick up a variety of NATO straps to mix and match with your outfits. You can even grab a leather strap and pass this off as a serviceable watch to pair with the right suit, if you're feeling fancy enough to wear a suit but casual enough to wear a Timex Weekender.
The battery holds up nicely, the face is resilient (but not impervious) to scratches, and it is comfortable to wear. Not much more a person could ask for. Even when you own more expensive (how the kids say, "nicer") watches, buying a Weekender is still a fine idea. There's just something satisfying about starting your day by putting on a brightly colored nylon strap.
Honestly, the only negative about these watches is that it ticks sort of loudly. You can't hear it in class or really in any public situation, but sitting on your desk in a quiet room gets a little annoying. It's an easy enough fix: just put it in a drawer or in your closet.
The biggest downside I've found is, for one, the lighter-colored watch bands collect dirt over time. Since they're canvas, it gets even worse if you're sweating. They can even get smelly if you're really sweating a lot. They can be hand-washed, but it's something you'll have to think about.
It claims that it can withstand rain, but after hiking in the rain, there was moisture behind the face of mine. It eventually evaporated and worked for another couple of years before losing it, but the light didn't work right after that.
I haven't had a problem with the strap, but I love that I have options to simply slide and switch it with another color, no jeweler visit required. It's been mentioned that it has a loud tick, it does, it's yet another thing I actually like. The audible tick isn't annoying, doesn't keep me awake, (I sleep with my watches on), and I find it kinda comforting. (Really, how bad can things be if time is still ticking? :)
I am thrilled with this watch, great price, great construction, water resistant. Plus, I've already ordered another for my husband, (who this was intended for before I commandeered it), at the regular amazon price, so you know I think it's worth it!

As others mentioned, it's pretty loud, although it doesn't bother me at all.
