Sent my regular watch in for a tune up, ***.** bucks, ugh, and wanted something super cheap, ** bucks at *** **** but comfy and reliable and accurate. My cheapo uncle has a Timex so I asked him about it. He said go buy one. So I did and now I have sort of a crazy love affair with this watch. It is spot on accurate, no issues so far- 3 months - and it looks good. It is now my gym, hike, beach etc watch. And, my Rolex GMT II will age much better now. I love it.
This is just what I wanted. It looks good and the Indiglow feature is the best way tho read a dial face watch in the dark. Other watches luminous hands are so weak in light I can't see them. I'll probably order another one!!

I've been very pleased with the watch. I wanted an analog display because I only need to glance at it to read the time and I don't have to worry about glare etc. distorting the reading like you get sometimes on a digital display. The watch also has a lighted dial,when it is selected, for use at night or low light. It's exactly what I wanted in a sports watch and it also keeps very accurate time.

I assumed the bezel turns. It doesn't, but my fault for assuming. No claim was made that it did. The description did state that the case is resin. It is metal - Steel?? At any rate its much heavier than I expected. Still, good looking, accurate, and does have the indiglo feature which I wanted.

We purchased this as a gift for a friend. It was a good price for this timex, as Target had the exact watch for several $ more. The packaging left little to be desired, as the timex box itself was made of the cardboard like most timex watches are, but the outer 'shipping' box was very thin and flimsy - we're glad it didn't end up crushed. It did, however, arrive within the expected time frame. Our family has owned several timex watches through the years, and appreciate the durability, function & longevity of them. I expect this one will perform just as nicely.
There were two things that didn't work for me. 1. The date indicator was so small that these old eyes couldn't read it. 2. When adjusting the date, the stem came completely out in my fingers. I pushed the stem back in and the watch worked fine but I had never had a stem come out like that before.
