Great looking and functioning watch !!
on May 18, 2015
I love the look of this watch as it's not clustered with too much information (ie you can see at a glance what you need vs menus and buttons!!). The watch itself is fairly big (1/2 inch thick) but if you like diving/water sport this is probably no big deal (it's probably required due to the 200m pressure capability). As far as functions: the bottom button turns on/off the depth gauge, which also turns off automatically after 2 minutes if you're at a depth reading of below 2m (6ft) to save batteries. The top button is the indiglo light which is plenty bright enough to see the time. The inner (flat) orange surface lights up green-ish. The sloped orange depth gauge dial does not. The second hand moves all the time and the temperature gauge is always on. The temperature gauge updates every minute (or faster if there is radical temperature changes). Obviously when you wear it. it will measure your skin temperature. The crown is screw-in to seal for higher pressures at depth. The bezel on the top only rotates counter-clockwise in 1/2 minute steps (ie 120 clicks per revolution). The crystal is clear without an AR coating. The dial has luminous paint as well as indiglo. The watch-strap is rubber and is large enough to sit on a wetsuit. There is laser etched on the body of the watch a small table that has Depth vs N.D. Time. Too be honest, it's too small to read and I suspect even with diving goggles magnification it's still to small.
Bottom line is that it's a great looking watch and good value for the price. All these people who can't get over the fact that it's a TIMEX should get over themselves. It works, it looks good, it's functional and it's a great price. TIMEX should be proud of this one !!
