This review is from: Timex Expedition Resin Combo Watch T84601 (Watch)
I've had similar Timex Expedition watches in the past, and this one was a disappointment.
My previous Expedition did a solid 3 years' service. Not bad for £30. However, this one lasted about a year, by which point I had replaced the strap, the face was scratched significantly, the battery was dead, and, worst of all, the casing was compromised and no longer waterproof. It finally died in the shower.
I'll admit that this watch was subject to higher than average rough wear, but I've always used these as sports/outdoor watches. This one in particular is weaker than usual, so I would be cautious about buying it.
The major plus sides to a Timex Expedition are the clear, easily read watch face, the neat, presentable design that will not look amiss with most outfits, the backlight for nighttime use, and the exceptionally user-friendly digital functions. It's a versatile watch, and I'll buy similar ones.
Before buying this particular model, however, consider first just how rough you'll be with it. Scraping against bulkheads and hatches on a ship will kill it within weeks. Tumbling off a mountain bike will scratch the face. If you want something for jogging, going to the gym, swimming, hiking, or similarly gentle exercise, it'll probably be fine. Look after it, and it will look after you.
