A good looking combo watch,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Timex Sport Ironman Triathlon 30 lap combo black dial - T5K202SU (Watch)
Watches can sometimes look quite different from the Ad pictures, so I am please to find this one looks even better in flesh than on the webpage. The dial has a subtle metallic sheen, setting it apart from the black casing, which feels sufficiently tough. Beware the whole thing is rather thick, but it does offer something good, in that the face is in a recess, so is protected by the raised outer rim. The lack of a second digital time is a shortcoming but, being a combo, one can always use the digital for the second time zone when travelling, keeping the analogue for home time zone, or vice versa.
It's not cheap for what it is, more than the equivalent Casio. But I always want combos with the seconds hand which rules out all the G-Shocks and all Tissot, even if I can afford. So choice is limited. Plus this one looks really good, and easier to use than a Timex I once own.

After 2 weeks with the watch, I feel that I need to take 2 stars off it. The digital watch is now 2 sec ahead, while the analogue one sec behind. My daily work often involve counting seconds, so this is a concern for me. But most annoying is the difference between the two sides of the watch, 'cause you are not sure which one to trust. For me the watch is still good looking, and seems to be well made from quality material. However 2 sec in two weeks is just not good enough for a famous brand like Timex, and certainly can't match most of the casios I have owned.
