I like the durability of the Timex Expedition, I wear this watch daily because it is not necessarily pretty or popular, it is simply a good watch for everyday wear.
I purchased this watch three years ago and I am still as happy with it as I was when it was new. I love that it lights up at night simply by pushing in on the stem. The crystal is free from scratches and the gold accents are still bright. The band broke but I was able to repair it myself. It keeps very good time and it's a very nice looking watch. I had planned to buy a Seiko but this Timex is everything I was looking for in a watch at half the price. I have had to replace the battery once because the light was getting dim. If you're looking for a basic watch that looks good and keeps accurate time, this is the watch for you.
I've owned two Timex Expedition Digital vibration watches and am planning a third purchase of the same watch. This watch has proven to be ultra reliable as a timepiece and has been very dependable in providing a great wake up tool for me in my travels. I would recommend this watch for anyone who has similar needs and is looking for a reasonably priced comfortable watch.
Got this for my son to go on a 10 day backpacking trip. No phones meant he needed another way to track time. This watch lives up to the old Timex commercials that claim "It takes a licking and keeps on ticking!" The watch and the band have survived quite a bit. It has been briefly in a shower, a pool, and a snowbank. It has been stepped on, dropped, and scraped on rocks. It has survived high heat and high altitudes. If only his smart phone was as durable and boy-proof! One of the best investments we have made for his Scouting Adventures. He now wears it all of the time and uses it to tell time instead of his phone. Happy mom!
