Beautiful design, but shocking QC. I've had 4, all with various flaws; dust under crystal, scratches on acrylic crystal, scratches/tarnish to case, bouncy & misaligned second hand and impurities in crystal. Considering the usual price is £75, it abysmal.

What do u use your for ;)
I don't get it :/ Do you like turn it to when your time expires?
That's what Google Assistant is for, a bezel won't tell you where you left the car when you can't find it (y)
Came today but a bit glitchy. Sometimes can't press the crown down to get the indiglo working. Up to noticing that I was very pleased with it. Will probably keep it.
Why does this one not show if I search on amazon for timex expedition scout and sort by price, but it does if I add tan to the search criteria? I barely use amazon because I hate how their search works.
Are these genuine? Seems too good to be true... Kindest regards
Good deal. Bagged one. Cheers
Can't say no to the dark faced one for 24 quid
Expired now £67.90
I have this one in beige the strap aint great but servicable and the flyback chronograph provides some techie interest. Good watch
there are 7 days in a week you know ;)
So like this watch, very nice indeed
Good deal !!! Pity I have five watches already don’t even trying convince myself for extra one.
I know there more than one version, but did you see this ?https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/rotary-mens-gold-plated-mecanique-automatic-watch-3107902
Perfect size comparison - thank you very much! So the dial itself is pretty green then.
Very very light compared to what i am used to
With my work watch .m
PS be nice to see a picture if you have time (y) (can't find anything on youtube re: this model, therefore difficult to judge)
how big is it on the wrist? wishing it was 38mm - the Hamilton and CWC pictured above work better stylitcally at sub 40mm I reckon.
What's the t-shirt part ?
That is the US site, you can't order from there to be delivered here. Timex UK doesn't have the promotion.
Great, thanks @Blurigard , Apprecite your favourites. :)
Well, Sam's statement has merit in this case - and not to bash your post, which had some good watches for the price. At the £15-25 bracket most watches are much the same, with mineral glass or plastic crystals and either no-name or cheap Miyota movements. However, you can get some nice looking watches from established fashion brands from TKMaxx at this price, which look perfectly good for the money. Here's one or two: Laura Ashely Pink Strap watch £16.99 https://www.tkmaxx.com/women/accessories/watches/pink-strap-watch/p/70032880 Limit Gold & Brown Round Watch £8.00 https://www.tkmaxx.com/men/accessories/watches+jewellery/watches/gold+brown-round-watch/p/70251308 Ben Sherman Navy Blue Dial Watch £14.99 https://www.tkmaxx.com/men/workwear/navy-blue-dial-watch/p/70186750 And my personal favourite, since they're designed just down the road from me in St. Andrews - and is a great reduction on the stock price - the Kartel, Grey Watch. It will also have a Miyota work-horse movement that is proven and reliable. The packaging on this item is also very good. This is one of their earlier designs and it is possible that it won't be a stainless steel case (they all do now), but at this price I wouldn't be expecting that. https://www.tkmaxx.com/men/accessories/watches+jewellery/watches/grey-canvas-circular-watch/p/70096497
Please name it, Sam.... love the input from you. :)
I checked Amazon before posting this, was £41 :)
I am sure Amazon would have better for this price to
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timex_strike I'd put a black strap (NATO/leather?) on that watch, but as with a load of others - had a similar model - nowadays, it's just too big :-(
I'm not aware what you're referring to?
Without Timex's failure, Dave Jones (who was made une.ployed by this) may not have gone on to Form DMA Design to make Lemmings, GTA etc. In fact the whole creative industries in Dundee sprung up around this. Abertay university began the first course in Games Programming etc over 20 years. All because of this, so sometimes a cloud has a silver lining.
Other watches are available. I don't need a watch badly enough to overlook Timex's unpleasant industrial relations history. It was long ago, but as far as I know nothing's changed and I still would not feel comfortable owning one.
Change the price to £23.09 in the title. This watch is a snip for the price and will last forever. Thanks op.
To me that is a very stylish watch. Timex are a decent brand too no? I'd have bought this in a heart beat had I moved into the smartwatch world. Heat.
Shows with an extra 20% discount for me. Shame its not the black or white colours too. ? Added anyway
I have this watch just be aware that it ticks really loud.
These watches i really like.Hot.
Brilliant easy to read dial and Indiglo is a great backlight.
i did a learning. thank you (y)
When it's 6 o'clock is south on both my left and my right? :)
To use your watch as an approximate compass outside of the tropics in the northern hemisphere, hold the watch horizontal and point the hour hand at the sun. Half way between that point and the twelve o'clock mark on your watch points to the south. For example, if it is eight o'clock, point the 8 on the watch face at the sun and south would be at the ten o'clock position. If it is four o'clock, point the 4 on the watch face at the sun and south would be in the two o'clock position. At midday (twelve o'clock), the hour hand itself should point south.
One of comments says: One thing that puzzles me: Why does a watch come with a non-moving bezel with compass degrees on it? I guess it's just for decoration.
Sure... they're for whoever you want them to be for (y)
What for？ aren't these for kids?
I bought two :p
Wait what, you actually bought this? I thought this was a joke
Love this. Ordered the Charlie B 🙌
That video is not showing this particular watch as it has a normal snap-on back, but they all take a common CR2016 battery which costs around 50p and takes 5 minutes to change. The hardest part is often getting the back on again. It can take a considerable amount of force to get it to snap back into place.
Thank you!! I will have a look and may have a go actually as i really like the watch
you are right you know
You really can do these yourself very easily. Here's a good guide on YouTube specifically for that watch for the next time. The case back is actually easier than most as it is held by four screws. Perhaps the battery itself is expensive?
Check how much it cost to replace the battery though, my wife bought me a Timex Ironman three years ago, when the battery died and went to get it replaced the guy told me that it would cost £15.99 for some reason, compared to the other watches where you pay about £5.99. It may not apply to this model though.
Guys do not forget topcashback.co.uk 5.25% back ;)
I quite like the Acctim, being radio controlledand a classically simple design. I have and have had alarm clocks by them, so I suppose they have some pedigree in a way!
Try codes AFF15 and AFF5 for a discount of 15% or 5% respectively (the codes are brand specific).
The Timex and boss ones are nice. The others are a bit too busy for my taste.
After going through two so called children's watches this seems like a good deal thank you
LOL I've been to the one in central. Don't know if it's still there, thanks for the heads up ;)
If ugly but cheap is your thing you should definitely check out Tiger Tiger nightclub in Portsmouth.
Partly correct, they do need it for tides/waves, well done. (y)
Oh yeah, “surfer dudes” need a watch to forecast tides, tell them how cold the water is and which direction the beach is? (lol) (lol) (lol)
camelcamelcamel shows amazon cheapest ever since 2012 some really bad reviews on amazon
i got this a couple of years ago and its a nice watch ... but i'm pretty sure I saw it on hotuk for under 50 ish ,,,, cant remember, Im getting a bit old
This is not a fashion watch, it has a specipfic purpose, great for surfer dudes and the adventurous.
