Timex

I know most of us have much more expensive time pieces. However, along with my SS Submariner, SS Datejust, Sarb033, SRP773. Tissot, I have to say I love my Timex watches. My two favorite are the Expedition Scout, and the 40th anniversary model, with white dial. I also have a Weekender, and chronograph. For about $30.00 - $40.00, I love the simplicity of these watches. Also can’t forget the Timex ticking sounds that drives everybody crazy. The 40th anniversary edition is such a easy watch to match up with straps. I’m currently wearing mine on a dark brown leather Nato. Battery life is suppose to be around 7 years. Can’t go wrong with that. Funny thing is, my four Timex are more accurate with the time. Who else has a Timex in their collection?

That’s called “ Vintage.” I’m sure it’s a nice watch. Smaller is making a comeback. Those dinner plate size watches are making a exit. I would wear your 70s piece. I’m sure it has a lot of memories, and stories behind it. Some say 36mm are small. However, I love my Datejust.

I have one of those, sits in a box in the back of my closet. When ever I take it out I wind it up and off it goes like new.

I have got two Timex watches ,one of them is Expedition . While writing off this message I see some irrelevant may be relevant kindred relationship between a renowned car maker named Rolls Royce and a cheap watch named Timex .
For Rolls Royce , they say you could not hear nothing but a a clock ticking inside and so goes for the Timex . It perches in my wardrobe and I can hear its ticking a few hundreds meters away lol
I like Expedition , it lights up when I press the button , I didn't like its strap and swapped with a rubber band .The case is plastic but definitely not a problem considering its price , it keeps the time well too .The button is digging in my wrist so I wear it with a rubber or leather wristband to overcome this problem
