I always heard this saying and my first watch I purchased was a Timex Expedition Chronograph.
And holy jesus is that true. That watch has taken one hell of a beating. I bought a Seiko SNE331 to replace my Timex as my hiking watch and it has all kinds of issues, and Seiko has been less than helpful getting it repaired properly.
What size strap for a Timex Expedition Chrono?
Amazon say 42mm band width, I know that ain't right.
Anyone want to show off how their strap has aged?
Take a look at the Timex Expedition!
Other than that, you really can't go wrong with any Timex or Seiko. Fossil is a fashion brand, I'm pretty sure they just use the cheapest movements they can find and concentrate on the watch's appearance. If you like the look of them though, then go for it :D
[link] This is the Chrono I bought to use at work. It does just fine. Also I do recommend you get one of the SNKs at some point. Great value and a great watch.
I fell in love with the look of this Timex Expedition Field Chronograph. But I own a Fossil of equal thickness (12mm) and I find it to be a little too tall on my wrist. Any suggestions on something similar-looking, thinner, and not too pricey?
I might just slip and buy it anyway cause it's perty.
Thanks for being cool, peeps, I've been learning a lot from you all lately!
This deal goes live in 5 minutes and I guarantee you I am going to pick one up. I picked up this Timex last time it was linked on this site for $40 because I was looking at the exact same watch that OP linked thinking it was too much for a similarly styled watch. Wasn't too happy with my compromise so I'm glad I get the rare opportunity to correct my mistake.
EDIT: Deal is live and it is going for 76.90, 81.71 with tax. According to the bot thats a new low!
It looks identical to mine(which I found via this sub) which is a Timex Expedition. The watch is great, but the strap on mine started to fall apart after a couple of weeks. I would recomend the watch, get a new strap.
I mistyped it, I meant the Expedition product range
I was able to get a price adjustment on the
Timex Expedition that popped up here about a week ago - I bought it for $39.05 but it's $28.48 with this promo.
Amazon chat was super helpful - refunded me back $10.57 because it was just past 7 days since delivery - YMMV!
I just bought this watch last night: [link]
Im about to purchase a strap, but not sure whether I need a 2 or 1 piece strap. BTW I bought a strap from you before: Excellent quality! I think the only thing I would probably recommend is adding the option for 2 floaters on the strap to keep it from sticking out. Otherwise, great material.
What's the watch from the thumbnail?
edit: got it Timex Men's T499059J Expedition Field Chronograph Watch
You just missed the black friday / cyber monday sale, but what do you think about this? [link]
Not my taste but a couple of my friends have it and love it.
I'm trying to find a balance between decent quality but not spending a ton because, like I said, I don't normally wear a watch and I don't want to be out a ton if I find it doesn't suit me. That being said, if I could find something around $150 (USD) that would be ideal. I was looking at this Timex but would prefer something in silver rather than black.
So I've had the Timex expedition chronograph for over a year now and the strap looks pretty bad now, so I want to get a new one and am looking for recommendations :)
This is the watch: [link]
What straps would you suggest buying and where from?
I though about picking up two NATO straps, one leather and one material, what's your opinion?
A review by Some Guy says that
>-The infamous Timex "ticks so loud you can hear it across the room at night" issue is completely absent from this watch. It's very quiet.
It is a good bit thicker than I imagined it would be from the picture alone on amazon. Check out the 360 or customer photographs on amazon.
