Elastic parts of strap are disintegrating within 2 weeks
on 14 August 2009
Okay, mechanical part is okay (as you'd expect from Timex) but the strap it is attached to is dreadful.
The face of the watch is attached to the main strap by elastic inserts. My son has worn his new watch on-and-off for the past 2 weeks. Yes, sometimes he's worn it in the shower and a couple of times he's worn it in our paddling pool. What I did not expect from a Timex watch was for the elasticated part of the watch strap to start perishing and stretching out of shape within 14 days. The face on my son's watch is now dangling from the main strap, attached by two stretched and perished pieces of elastic.
I am NOT impressed. The watch needs a new strap already. Unimpressed and going to return watch to Seller for a refund.
