Yup, spot on Dr Seuss. about as sophisticated as a $12 Wal-Mart watch.

I understand the internals are of better quality which is why I said it LOOKS like a Wal-Mart Timex. Honestly, as long as it keeps fairly reliable time, and even a Timex will, then there needs to be some focus on the cosmetics. In the aethetics department the 292 fails. Miserably.
