This watch is fun to have on your wrist for making a sort of style statement. However, the fonts used in each category (city, time, day/date) are too small to read easily. Also, I'm not sure whether it's easier to try to identify the cryptic three-letter abbreviations for cities and enter the city name to change the time, or just to change the time in the normal way. Any watch with multiple functions requires using each button for more than one thing. That makes this watch particularly complicated because of the number of functions - not made any easier by the four-language instructions on one piece of very thin paper that requires about five folds. After reading the instructions, it still is not clear what the compass-like dial in the upper center is all about nor how one would access it. I have another digital watch that doesn't look as good but is easier to read in light or with its own light. Not sure at this point how much I'll use this Timex given the challenges noted.
Not a Swiss watch, but this is just a great looking simple watch. It's water resistant, the lighted dial is great, and it very "on-trend". People tell me it's a nice watch when I walk through airport security all the time.
For the price I paid for this watch on Overstock.com, it was a steal. It's a great looking watch and accurate timekeeper. This is not my first Timex watch and I wanted a rugged, lighted dial,outdoor watch for everyday, all-around use. Actually, I used to work for Timex years ago as an inspector and even though it's rated water resistant to 50 meters, I kow that they are tested much deeper. The only issue I had with it was that the watchband loops are a bit too tight for the thickness of the strap and one broke after a few days wearing but this should be covered under warranty. I would definitely recommend this watch as a value.
