Summary: Beginning in the 1930s i have had numerous watches from wind ups,to auautomatics to the current quartz. Some inexpensive, some quite expensive. some military as I was Marine Pilot, some for civilian flying and some for show ;-). But NONE equal the utility of the Timex 'Easy Reader.' I have had four and keep a spare. the one problem, as someone else pointed out, is that after a couple of battery changes the little light may go out.
Summary: This Timex Easy Reader is a great watch. The price is very fair, the day and date features work well, though one does have to manually adjust the day and date at the end of each month, the Indiglo light is very reliable and handy, the face looks like a good old Railroad Station clock and the watch is very nicely proportioned. I live 700 yards from the ocean and have not had one bit of condensation or fogging or sweating problems.
Summary: My husband loves this watch. It is easy to read for those with poor eyesight, and the light is an added plus. I was surprised that it was so inexpensive. The quality is very good, and I would recommend it to anyone.
Summary: I HAVE HAD THIS WATCH 5+ YEARS. THE WATCH AND BAND SHOW NO SIGNS OF WEAR. THE METAL USED IN EACH IS VERY DURABLE. IT IS EASY TO SEE THE TIME AND DATE, DAY (BLACK NUMBERS ON A WHITE FACE) OR NIGHT (HAS INDEGLO). I LOVE THAT FEATURE. KEEPS EXCELLENT TIME. EXCELLENT VALUE!!
Summary: I've had this watch since around 8/11. It keeps very accurate time, unlike my Seiko 5 automatic which is ~2 minutes fast per day. The band is very comfortable (to me) and fits my 7.5 inch wrists very well. Yes it ticks more loadly than say a Citizen eco-drive but it doesn't bother me in the least. It is extremely easy to read at a glance, unlike digital watches (especially Casio G-Shocks).
Summary: The watch is fine,but hard to see day and date. Took a while to set it up and you have to manually reset on shorter months, less than 31 days. Would have got a better rating if it was truly a MAN'S watch. The band was so small it cut into my wrist so I had to buy a larger band to be able to wear it without cutting off my blood circulation to my hand. When are Manufactures going to realize that when they say Men's watch it should be for a man and not a boy?
Summary: I purchased this watch to replace another Timex I've had for years as a work watch. It's easy to read and I like the Indiglow feature for low-light times. I wear it in all weather working outdoors. It takes a lot of abuse. The old Timex advertising line, "It takes a lickin' and keeps on tickin'" is still true.
