Summary: This was an exact replacement for my previous watch which I had for over a year. I broke the crown moving some furniture. The watch band on this new watch is horrible. It's a really cheap leather. It's so cheap that within a week the band color had worn away and a purple/white color had come through around the buckle, then spread. Looks like Timex is saving money on the band. Mechanically it's a great watch, cheap band.
Summary: My Dad went to Hawaii for a holiday in the mid 70s and came back with a Timex watch for me. I loved that watch so much I wore it every day at school for the next 5 years. The other day I saw this watch on Amazon and thought, what the hell, I'll take a punt on it! Well I'm pleased to say I love it in every way! It looks great, the indiglo works a treat, and it keeps better time than my $2000 Raymond Weil! Best thirty bucks I ever spent.
Summary: This is a nice-looking time piece with a clean face, clear crystal, and slim profile. My only gripe is the band is somewhat narrow, particularly for a man's watch, but this is more a matter of preference than a serious problem with the watch. I haven't had it long, so I can't speak for its durability, but I've owned Timex pieces in the past and they've always held up well. I expect this one will too, though if it doesn't, I will post an update.
Summary: I got this watch as a Christmas gift for my husband and he loved it! It's simple, functional and stylish. We just purchased a couple of J. Crew straps on sale and switched out the band. It's like a new watch each time! Would highly recommend this! I want one myself!
Summary: I do love Timex. They are a great American brand and have awesome, inexpensive watches that don't look like you bought them at a toy store. This watch is no exception. I swapped the band out and can wear it with anything. I wear it to work everyday and also don't think twice about wearing it out to meet a pretty lady (not that it happens much). However, I did have to exchange it. I had the watch about 2 weeks when it started loosing 2 hours every night.
Summary: I agree that this watch is a good choice for either a man or a woman. I bought it for me (female) and absolutely love it! Big but not ridiculous. Asked my brother just how much he thought it cost -- he looked at it, noting the band and said $200. I could not be happier with it -- great watch, exceptional value!
Summary: This may be a men's watch, but it is beautiful for women, also. Nice black band, great size (can easily see the date!) and lights up when needed. Exactly what I was looking for at an excellent price.
