Timex Company Background
Timex History: During World War I, the US Army asked Timex to re-tool the Yankee pocket watch into a convenient new "wristwatch" for soldiers. In 1933, Timex produced the very first Mickey Mouse Clocks and watches, under an exclusive license from Walt Disney. Within just a few years, the company sold two million of these watches. In the 1950s came the introduction of the world's first inexpensive but reliable watch. Torture-test advertising campaigns promoted Timex watches with the tag-line: "It takes a licking and keeps on ticking."
Ever since watches moved from the pocket to the wrist, Timex has defined how the world tells time. For over 150 years, Timex has led the way providing affordable cutting-edge technology in trendsetting styles. For Timex, time began in 1854. Over the many years that followed, through wartime and peacetime, Timex watches have kept more than time: they've kept a promise of undaunted innovation.
- In 1986 Timex introduced the "Ironman Triathlon watch" that revolutionised sports timing with features and durability that were an instant hit with the dedicated athletes that inspired it. One of the most important ever introductions by Timex watches is the Indiglo backlight system. Invented by Timex in 1992, the Indiglo lamp uniformly lights the watch dial with a blue backlight, using Timex's unique leading electroluminescent technology.
Modern Day: Timex remain one of the only watchmakers in the world to manufacture all of their own movements. Timex Originals: paying homage to over 150 years of Timex heritage, the Timex Originals collection is inspired by vintage designs through-out the decades, brought up-to-date with a modern twist. Timex is proud to be the official timing sponsor of some of the greatest marathons in the world--New York, London and Berlin.
In 2011, Timex introduced the Timex Intelligence Quartz collection. Based on state of the art technology that is an open-ended platform with the flexibility to incorporate new technologies, new functions and new ideas as they become available, Intelligence Quartz is a design and technology platform targeted primarily to the male consumer seeking a sophisticated yet technology driven timepiece.

The strap design at first glance it looks like a basic canvas/velcro strap, but the clever design is that the strap has a second stretchy length attached to the centre; this second strap passes above the securing pins and under the watch body which results in far less strain being put on the pins by the strap.
The "indiglo" backlight is very effective
Re the latter, there is a nice back light. Press and hold the crown to operate. Not too bright and so will not create nuisance glow if used in a dark room. Also, the hands are luminous. Have yet to test out how well that works (i.e. does the watch absorb enough energy during the day to keep the hands lit at night. That way it also has a 3rd purpose as a bed stand clock.
My only niggle is that the strap is too short to allow me to put the watch over my hand without unthreading the strap from the buckle and then threading the strap back through the buckle. But I guess make it longer and you have more strap to vecro around your wrist. My day job watch has a metal clasp.
For the price then I can't see you can go wrong with this.
the watch is lightweight simple to use quite stylish,but will see if the strap will stand the test of time,but then again to buy a cheap Velcro strap to replace this one encase it breaks is not really an issue
* Just as in the picture.
* Is rugged and can be used during sport.
* Looks very good, the army green colour
* has numbers in the dial ( am a big fan of numbers)
* is light and you hardly even realise it is in your hand.

The watch lasted less than 12 hours out of the box. For a box that's meant to be designed for "expeditions" this is unacceptable.Published on 23 Jun. 2014 by A. G. Peck
