Summary: An excelent watch. I've been use this model for the past ten years, and it was a good experience, the design of the case, the light on the back, and the resistence to the elements, including water.
Thicker and Heavier than my last 2 Expedition Combos

Summary: I was disappointed that this Expedition Metal Combo is almost 2 times thicker and heavier than my last 2 Expedition Combos, even though from the picture it appeared to be identical except for minor cosmetic differences of the face design. I only ordered it online because I could no longer find an Expedition Combo anywhere locally, including stores that used to carry them. I am very disappointed that I cannot get another of the Expedition Combo watches that I like!
Summary: I have had mine for about 5 years. It is tough as nails, not to heavy, water, dust, dirt and mud proof. This is my second one. I had the first one about 8 years and took it to wal-mart to get the battery replaced and she used a HAMMER to close it and cracked the glass. It still worked but was no longer water proof. Great watch at a good price.
Summary: I spend, at least, 2 weeks out of each month traveling the world for my business. I wanted a watch that does have style, yet is reasonably priced and will allow me to keep track of different time zones. This watch is perfect! It is easy to read and set and is very comfortable to wear all day and all night.
Summary: I am now on my 4th timex expedition. I love it and use it constantly. The only time it comes off is to sleep. I love all the features..Rugged, Value, Worn all the timeBattery lifeI have been using timex for over 25 years it is a reliable watch that can take a beating!
Summary: I had a Timex analog/digital combination when I was younger and loved it. I broke my last analog Timex, and the T49828 is a great replacement. The features are all that I want, and the white face goes with anything I wear. The only downside I've found so far is summer sweat staining the band; I've used saddle soap a couple of times to clean it and it comes right back. Great purchase if you want a casual watch you can dress up and still take camping!
Summary: Overall this is a good watch. It is durable and keeps accurate time. However, the instructions for the digital are incredibly bad. There is nothing intuitive about setting the digital settings and that includes the date. I still haven't been able to figure out how to get the alarm not to go off at midnight each night, and I am not a technophobe or neophyte.
