Timex Compass Watch,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Timex Intelligent Quartz Men's Compass Watch with Black Dial Analogue Display and Green Fabric and Canvas - T2N726 (Watch)
Good service as usual from Amazon, ordered on 19/2 received 21/2. Just one thing on Amazon's product description, the item weight is given as 250g but this is the packed weight. I nearly didn't order the watch because of this. However two other sites gave the item weight as 77g which is correct. Other than that the watch is good quality, rugged, easy to operate and looks good on the wrist. The Timex indiglo system for night reading is the best there is. The watch strap is nylon on top with leather stitched on the inside for next to skin comfort which is great for when the going gets a bit sweaty. The only MINOR criticism is the size of the date window which is quite small. With an uncluttered 40mm watch face the date window could have been larger.
the manual is over 300 pages but, as is normal these days, it's in three other languages and spans more than one watch type. For this watch all you need to know are the date, time and compass instructions and these can be found on pages 9 and 39 to 45 respectively.
I've had a Timex (Expedition) before which lasted years and took a few knocks along the way and I think I'll be as pleased with this one as I was with the previous. I do a lot of long haul travel combined with a bit of off the beaten track stuff and I want a watch that is practical, rugged, light to wear on the wrist, not too complicated and simple to change the time manually between time zones and this does the job very well.

Leather? Description says strap is 'green fabric and canvas' - no mention of it being leather? Are you sure? Only asking as I won't wear leather and trying to find a decent watch with non-leather strap is really difficult
