Returned goods sold as new
on 12 January 2012
A little larger than you might expect and stands higher on the wrist, but this suited us. What didn't suit us was finding that the watch had clearly been returned by someone else after they had tried it - the thing was running and set to GMT+2 hours. It comes from Timex with a small plastic tab under the watch crown to stop the battery running down; you pull the tab out when you want to start it. It was already gone. So - quite unambiguous: returned goods sold as new (which is illegal). Battery died completely within 2 months. The strap also broke in a few months - poor quality.
The watch itself is what we wanted - clear, plain, simple, unfussy and cheap. The Indiglo illumination is excellent. It doesn't look stylish or anything, but if you are prone to leaving watches lying around and want a cheap one for work, this fits the bill.
