I have had this watch for over 16 years, it has finally gotten worn out from constant use and more than once accidental abuse.
I am now in the process of purchasing another one. It has all the features that I need and like without all the fake glitter I don't. This watch keeps very good time for a very long time.
I love this watch! It has easily read black numbers on a white background. It has both the day and the date which for me are invaluable. The indiglo feature is very convenient when checking the time when it is dark.
I must tell you, however, that this is my second. The first, for some reason did not keep very good time so I took it back. But I have had this one for 3 days now and so far it is accurate to the second.
The watch has a nice leather band, big, clear, easy to read face, fairly easy to set - has both the day and date independently setting!!!! You wouldn't know it by looking at it but it has the "Indiglo" light feature on it that stays on as long as you hold the button. Most Indiglo watches just light for a few seconds no matter how long you held down the button. I only wish it had the "nite glo" feature that works with some Indiglo watches - you press the Indiglo button for about 4 - 5 seconds, it makes a "beep" and from then on when you press the Indiglo light, it stays on for about 4 seconds without you having to hold the button down. All in all, a nice watch to have.
This watch lasted only a few days, but I replaced it with a new one like it. I have had this same watch before and had good service from them. This was a rare faulty watch. The exchange of the faulty watch with a new one was a hastle free experience
It's a camping watch and the Indiglo works great. This watch replaced another Timex Indiglo watch that was 20 or more years old. So, I'm hoping this one lasts as long.
Setting the day and date is erratic. Initially I pulled the entire crown out of the watch! It went back in, but setting the day or date did not work. I then went through a few iterations of pulling the crown out halfway and turning to adjust. Things FINALLY lined up internally and I was able to set both day and date.
It's important to know when the time is AM or PM since it effects future day and date readings. Setting the time at PM will change the day and date when the time reaches 12. (12 represents both AM and PM.) This feature is common in most watches, just keep it in mind when setting time.
The only reason the watch did not get 5 stars is because of the erratic way in which the day and date are set. The instructions and how the watch worked in this respect did not match.
This is a great watch but it is not water proof at all.
Steam from your shower will fog up the watch to and will not clear up and shorts the batery out.
As for the batery life only two years.
The oversized numbers and Indiglo feature make this watch very easy to read at all times of the day.
Unfortunately, the fit of the watch and watch band is rather uncomfortable.
This watch was ordered for my husband who has had timex wathches in the past , and was pleased with them.This watch has a large dial, with the indiglo blue with better visualization at night.It is so easy to read.The price was good, as was the pack., and it arrived on time.It has a leather band , and looks more expensive than it cost.I would reccomend it.
I had to put my old band on it to fit my wrist comes with a standard size. I like seeing the day with the date indeglo works good looks great and has the Timex reliability.
I ordered this watch online because it was advertised as "oversized". It was NOT oversized and the specifications didn't list the diameter of the face. It was actually smaller than my old Timex and even smaller than one that I saw in the store later when I was trying to get my money back.
I also noted that the same watch cost nearly $10 less in store than this watch was online.
I also had trouble returning the watch, even though I had the "easy return" slip printed out and with me at the jewelry counter.
From here on, I'll go to stores and try to find what I want on their shelves instead of ordering a watch with unknown specifications and paying a higher price for online orders than what the store charges.
I love Timex and have worn only their watches for most of my life. This is another great one, well worth the price. It's a mans watch but the look is exactly what I wanted and didn't find in womens selections. Big, easy read face and love the indiglo feature. Only con is the band is very stiff...and of course a bit too big for my wrist....still I love it!
I had hoped the watch face would have been larger.
Just what I wanted - Nice big numbers and EASY to read !!!
The "leather" band that comes on the watch doesn't look as nice as the one in the photo. It's actually more similar to a smooth brown vinyl. What "leather" there is is sewn on top of some kind of man made material and the edge of the watch band is simply cut and painted black. Not a great compliment to a nice watch. I got this particular Timex because it always helps me to know the day of the week. I'm just that way I guess. I easily get confused. And I'm not really that old.
My father in law has trouble seeing and with the big face and numbers he has no trouble seeing what time it is. He especially likes the Indiglo for night time.
I got exactly what I wanted.The watch keeps real good time.
We got this watch for my father whose vision is not as good as he believes. The large numbers and the light switch come in handy for him.
If you are a woman and have vision problems, this "men's" watch fits the bill. I LOVE IT.
Very well made, 100% leather band - you won't be disappointed...
it was on time. they told me time &day,and its there.i had someone pick it up,they where in other town .they had no problem getting it.
i bought this watch for my 76 yr old father and he loves it. the large numerals are easy to read and the day/date is very helpful. the indiglo dial is a nice feature also.
