First of all, I am a (modest) watch collector and am always on the look-out for for 'my next watch', especially one that would be very easy to read in the dark. So, how happy am I with this (bargain) gem from Timex? Very happy! This watch is even better looking in the flesh than in the picture. It looks and feels much more expensive than it is. It is very legible in daylight, but at night it really scores, having not only luminous hands but Timex's 'Indiglo' back light. The watch also has a very nice strap and clasp, both adding to the expensive appearance and feel of the watch. The only item I could imagine improving this watch would be a magnified (cyclops) date window. Oh yes, one final comment - it keeps time very well!
