I'm reviewing the Timex Man's Watch that I bought my husband for Christmas.
It cost me £45 online,but was advertised at being originally £60,so I was happy with a bit of saving there.
The model No is T2N602 and it has a leather strap rather than the stainless steel one pictured,but is identicle otherwise. It is an analogue watch & has a black dial & very clear hands & numbers.
The case is 42mms in diameter ,and 12mms thick.The warranty is for 2 years,which is fair enough for a £45 watch.It is water resistant up to 30 metres.
First (as usual) why I bought this. Well I was looking for something to buy my other half for Christmas is reason number one. The second reason is that the one he had had become disfigured due to a DIY incident which caused the glass to get badly scratched .It didn't bother him,but it bothered me intensely & he simply dug his heels in & refused to look for a new one. MEN ! So I investigated buying a new one for him.
Buying him a watch is a pain quite frankly (hence the last one being 4 yrs old) because he is incredibly fussy in a plain way.......if that makes sense. He doesn't like "whistles & bells" and prefers a plain analogue watch with a plain face that is easily readable. The strap must be leather,because anything else causes a skin reaction .After looking around a few shops I saw none that ticked all the boxes I knew needed ticking, so I looked online & saw this one on offer. The fact that it was reduced in price was a bonus.....literally.
I was dubious about Timex because I vaguely recalled hearing bad reports on them in the past ,but on reading up was assured that while they may not be considered topnotch gear by some purists,they are perfectly serviceable & durable,which is all we needed.So I went ahead & bought this one.
It arrived nicely boxed & looked the bizz.....just like in the advert . I checked it for visible marks,scratches etc, but it was pristine as expected,so I wrapped it & put it under the Christmas tree fully expecting much rolling of eyes at his unwrapping it to find something he declared he REALLY didn't need. But fortunately he seemed really pleased with it on the day & set aside his old one to put the new one on .
He loves the black face & finds it really easy to read.
He swims daily so I had thought the "water resistant to 30 metres" a plus. But apparently he removes it & leaves it in his locker anyway (who knew),so not tested that feature out really as yet. Time keeping has been precise with no loss or gain of minutes and it seems hardy enough so far. Hopefully it remains accurate & gives no problems,but if it does I will update this review accordingly.
Would I recommend it ? Not sure yet ........in as far as it has been used it has been reliable,but three months is not that long really.Time will tell (see what I did there?). But so far so good.
