Beware the strap
on 18 August 2012
I bought this months ago. The watch has been really reliable, and I love having a timex again after all these years! I didn't realise it had an 'illuminate' button but I've found that very useful. Obviously as a timex it's got a lovely, clear, round face.
But the strap is low quality. I already need to replace it. And this might seem a daft thing to say, but it ticks REALLY loudly! No, really REALLY REALLY loudly! (e.g. I can hear it now, over the tele). I've never known such a loud watch! I don't mind that - in fact I rather like it's station-clock qualities - but you might. (you really shouldn't buy it for someone about to do an exam, eg)
(years later: Dec 2015): I felt the need to update my review because, while the strap is very long gone, my watch is still doing marvellously and looks as good as the day I bought it. I'm not a careful person so that's saying something! I still like its face. I've had to replace the battery once. Its ticking continues to tickle me.
