5.0 out of 5 stars Best at ANY Price, January 30, 2012
This review is from: Timex Men's T20461 Easy Reader Silver-Tone Stainless Steel Expansion Band Watch (Watch)
Beginning in the 1930s i have had numerous watches from wind ups,to auautomatics to the current quartz. Some inexpensive, some quite expensive. some military as I was Marine Pilot, some for civilian flying and some for show ;-).

But NONE equal the utility of the Timex 'Easy Reader.' I have had four and keep a spare. the one problem, as someone else pointed out, is that after a couple of battery changes the little light may go out. It is some form of luminescent material and apparently just wears out. big deal!

For the price, or ANY Price, the day date and time is absolutely accurate. Easy to change when months have different number of days. The band can be replaced with any type desired. These watches are attractive, but not an attention grabber, which I really like - don't want to lose an arm with some bozo trying to steal it.

It has been a mystery to me why anyone in his right mind would own and wear a time piece that has to be wound . Want to show off?? Get a bracelet!!

I own a Awiss Army 24hr Infintry Watch that retailed for $499.00 (found it on Amazon at a Texas Jeweler for $260) It's a self winding automatic movement, but you can wind it manually. No battery. It self winds as long as you wear it and there is arm movement. If you let it sit 2 days it stops.

I bought the Swiss Army because I got tired wearing cheap, plastic / rubber Chinese watches that the batteries kept dying on. Lights / LED readouts dimming or failing and mode buttons that did nothing when you pressed them..

I also have a 1950 Hampden watch mom gave dad before he went into the Korean war in 1950. Its a wind up watch, no day / date. I just had the dial restored - case & band polished, face repainted, new numbers, word, lines, hands painted or polished. Crystal looked shot but they ground & polished it to like new condition. Well worth it to me to spend the $180.00 for this service..

And yes I like to show it off while wearing a gold bracelet on the other wrist.

I just bought the Timex T20461 at K-Marts Going Out of Business sale.....1/2 off. We'll see how long the 10 year battery lasts in this one..
