Reviews and Problems with Timex Camper Watch - Black Dial - Olive Nylon Strap
Showing 1-10 of 70

Summary: Nothing really special. It has military time, and has really showed its endurance. The glass/whatever material the cover is made out of shows quite a bit of scratches. However, I've moved onto a digital watch.
Summary: I had two watches I liked but they had the Velcro wrist band which kept loosening and eventually falling off the wrist. This TIMEX stays put as it has a worthy buckle arrangement. And I no longer have to waste time to set the correct date or other obstructions. The watch at the price I paid, keeps time on time, which is the basic reason to have a watch. I guess they call it the "camper watch" because the band is greenish.
Reminds me of my watch in Army Basic Training - Nostalgic!

Summary: This is like the Timex I had in Army Basic Training that I was able to get at the PX (the main difference is that I believe back in the early 80's ... these were wind-up watches). I needed a nice, simple watch with a second hand (and I love the 24 hr clock) for EMT school and volunteer work in EMS. The sweeping second had is very visible and that was my main concern for taking vitals. There is a lot of nostalgia accompanied with this watch and it brings back memories.
Summary: When I was 18 I was just getting into basic training and needed a watch. Everything I owned was in a backpack and I had all of $45 to my name, but the Army gave me a small advance on my first paycheck and I invested in some essentials at "Clothing and Sales" such as sneakers, socks (btw, if you're headed to basic training, stay away from cotton socks), and a watch.
Summary: This isn't the first of these that I've owned and so I was already aware that it's a small faced watch and that it does tick quite loudly, so neither of those common complaints were bothersome for me. I tend to also wear a bracelet or two on the same wrist as my watch and so the smaller size is a plus for me and as for the ticking, well yes, it ticks. It's a $20 watch. You can hear it pretty well when it's quiet but that's not something that bothers me really.
Summary: my dad had this watch and wore it for years (like years upon years--- i remember him wearing the same watch when i was 5) well just a few months ago it broke and he has not been able to find another one (mind you, he never gets online and doesn't know that you can find just about anything on the internet) my mom bought him a more sporty version by timex from wal-mart, and he wears it, but is secretly broken inside because it wasn't "his" watch.
Summary: This is a good watch. It took awhile to get shipped but I didnt really care too much. It does exactly what its supposed to do, and i have gotten it wet from doing the dishes, washing cars etc.., and its still going strong. This is a great simple watch, that does what its supposed to, and looks good while doing it.
Summary: Hey everyone, I read a lot of customer reviews on this watch and after much debating between this one and other ones I went for the Timex camper watch. It's true what people say that the band is cheap but it will last a long while if taken care of properly along with the watch itself. Even though it's water resistant....I never will test it at all in water, because obviously watches are not made to be in water anyways.
Summary: This is a no frills basic watch. Simple but looks good casually. The case is a little too small for a men's watch but it kinda grows on you. Very light on the wrist. Overall a very basic and clean looking watch.
