Summary: I bought this watch when I didn't really need one, but had gift card and cash card to spend at my local sporting goods store. It's a nice watch but I typically like something bigger on my wrist. I like the analog/digital combo and particularly like the way this one looks. And it was relatively inexpensive.
Summary: The main reason I bought the watch was for the rubber strap since I wear my watch when working outside in the summer and leather bands degrade badly due to sweat. This watch fills the bill for that. Maybe it's just me but I have an extremely hard time with the digital settings. Instructions are less than clear and I still haven't figured out how to get the alarm turned off.

Summary: ...that you really can't go wrong with at this price. Very similar to the blue-faced Timex T49744 Watch . The band is flexible and soft, a great choice if avoid metal bands the way I avoid them! The resin band allows you wear it comfortably loose, and still remain in place on your wrist. There is a notch in the band retainer loop that mates to a raised portion at the end of the band, so the band retainer won't slide.
Summary: My first Expedition is well over 10 years old and still works perfectly. Bought this watch because it is more stylish, has more features, and looks like a more expensive watch. It runs great, very functional, and not as loud as other reviews have indicated. Good buy for the money. Luminous hands and Indiglo nightlight are key reasons as well, and they both work as expected.
Summary: I bought this watch over a month ago and been very happy with it. It is comfortable, has kept excellent time, and has a lot of features. A couple of reviewers have complained that the watch ticks very loudly. Either I am going deaf or Timex has fixed the problem because I have no such issue. Now why I gave this watch 4 stars instead of 5.
Summary: this is an low price but high value item. I love it the only issue i have is i dont like the resign band but i knew that going in to it. so i will get one i like. other than that it works well.
Summary: The GOOD: I bought this watch from Amazon and was excited to find a good looking, functional watch for a good price. I love the fact that it has a classic analog face, yet is able to perform multiple digital functions. The indiglo light is a nice addition that I lacked on my previous watch. It also keeps time accurately. The BAD: The watch clicks so loudly that in a decently quiet setting, I can hear it tick clearly across a typical bedroom.
Summary: I bought this for work. I need the indiglow light because I am in the dark a lot, it works great. It is a little loud, so if you are a light sleeper and you sleep with it next to your head than I would consider something else, it doesn't really bother me though. I use the analog for local time. I use the digital display for military time, and the second digital time zone for Zulu time. I would say this is more of a 25.99 watch. I paid 32.50.
Summary: I purchased this watch at another retailer, but I thought I would mention a few things. The watch has Indiglo backlight in which the whole face lights up in a blue-green color so that you see silhouettes of the hands and numbers. The digital display inversely lights up (the numbers light up rather than the whole display).
