The tell-tale watch
4 February 2012
Summary: I've had this watch for about 6 months. Pros: - Still works - Very light weight - Small Cons: - Cheap strap - Clear (glass/plastic?)scratches easily - LOUD I cannot overstate that last con one bit. This watch is LOUD - like, really really loud. When I am not wearing this watch I usually store in in my sock drawer, so its obnoxious ticking doesn't drive me insane at night.
Summary: I've owned 3 of these over the last 12 years. One was lost, the other stolen, and my current one I've had for 3 years. The size of this watch takes a while to get use to. The strap stretches a bit after a few wears. Since it has a ribbon strap, expect it to get sweaty-all you need to do is wash the strap with anti-bacterial soap when this happens and you're good to go.
Maybe not for camping (if it rains and you fall in the lake to any great force) but GREAT EVERYDAY WATCH: it's a good thang!

Summary: VERY comfortable. Even the web band does not irritate as I thought this material might. Great advance over the leather band my long time Timex Men's T44921 Expedition Classic Analog Watch (or some other design in this line, probably discontinued years ago) had, especially for a vegan like me. No animal had to die to make my watch band, and it is as comfortable as silk.
Summary: Good looking watch if you're looking for that simplistic or classy look. Like someone mentioned below, you can wear it with anything. It doesn't have fancy bells or whistles like a built in stop watch or count down timer, but it tells the time, and if that's all you need this is it right here.
Summary: OK, it's just a plain watch, tells the time. I've had this watch for a few years now, seems to keep good time, no surprise. But a couple of weeks ago, I must have taken the watch off, put it in the pocket of my pants, and somehow put the pants in the washing machine. The watch came out of the pocket while being washed, and I found it in the bottom of the drum. Still working, there was some condensation under the crystal cover, but just fine otherwise. And clean!
