Still love the Timex Dual Display range
on 7 May 2014
I've had various models of the Timex dual display range. This model is slightly dated now in that it has been around for a good 10 years, however the only limitation is that the countdown timer can only go up to 99 minutes 59 seconds. This is a shame as I often use the countdown timer for flights as I find it hard to track how much of the flight is left when trying to factor in time-zone changes and not always remembering exactly when we took off.
This is a heavy watch, but I actually like that. The black bezel and styling give the watch a slightly military feel, but classy too (at least in my opinion).
With other dual display watches, the digital display is often too small, but this one, as with all the Timex dual display range, has good sized digits and is very easy to read. The backlight could be a little brighter but it's basically fine. The T5K399SU version which I previously had is definitely better in respect of the backlight and the digital display is even easier to read, however I much prefer the styling of the model on this page.
The only downside to this and all of the Ironman Dual Display range is the resin strap; I have owned 4 of these, maybe 5 (various versions) and the resin strap always gives up first after about 18months - 2 years. That aside, after 10 years, I have still not found a better watch of this dual display variety so I return time and again to the Timex range.
