Summary: I got this watch about half a year ago and it is great. I did not buy the watch only for its ability to go 200 meters deep in the water but also because it looked cool. The reviewers that said that the watch fogs up probably did not screw in the crown all the way in. You have to push on the crown and then screw it in so it does not wobble around and spin.
Summary: This is a great watch plain and simple.the face is large enough that all it takes is one look to know what time it is.The hands and number marks are large as well and they glow all night long without needing to use the back light either.It's also not seven inches thick where you catch it on everything and are constantly aware of how thick or heavy it is.Which it isn't.
Summary: I purchased this watch after a LOT of searching and trying to compare value for money across many brands and prices - including Mako, Wenger, Citizen, Seiko, Invicta, Luminox and Traser. I have an expensive and older Rolex that I wear during work days. I wanted something to wear on weekends, holidays, in the water etc. so that if something goes wrong I lose $'00s not $'000s. Two months in it is working great.
Summary: Whoever designed this Expedition Dive Style Timex Watch--T49618 should be fired! It happened to me, also--it FOGGED UP on the inside. I was just walking around in the city on a cool and sunny day--about one hour the watch became FOGGY. Granted, I am a warm bodied man but still I have never experienced a watch FOGGING UP. In addition, the blue backlight does not work now and the crystal scratch too easily. DO NOT BUY IT!
Summary: I bought this watch less than 3 months ago. Since then it has been put through relatively mild conditions but nothing even close to extreme. Within a month, the paint on the rotating bezel began to wear/chip off. And today I bumped it on my linoleum countertop (not exactly a hard surface!) and it shattered the mineral crystal between 7 and 8 o'clock (see user-submitted pictures above).. Hardly what I'd call an 'outdoor' watch, this thing didn't even last a few months.
Summary: I got the product and wore it for a couple of days with not a thing that went wrong. Then the funniest thing happened! It started FOGGING UP! I was upset with the thing and banished it to the bottom of the closet. The lady then got me a better watch... Pros: looks great, Does not glow like a nuisance, really stylish black, Watch bezel does not move unless you move it.
Summary: Looked around for a similar product with a large display, metal case and luminous dial and found them to be substantially higher priced. This watch is exactly what I am looking for and I'm glad I found it in a Timex as all my previous watches were Timex and I have never been disappointed. I'm sure I will enjoy years of use with this watch.
Summary: Excellent everyday or work watch if you work outdoors. Typical Timex reliability at a reasonable price with the indiglo that I love. I also really like the unique strap design that keeps the strap end pinned to my wrist.
Summary: This is my third Timex watch. I have an Ironman one and an old digital one that is thirteen years old which still works (I have only replaced the battery once too)! Timex just astounds me at how much better quality their watches for such a reasonable price. I have a thing for watches but I can say with confidence that the Timex ones work perfectly (I have had multiple problems with Swiss Army and Tissot, which were a lot more money too, go figure).
