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.
Was this really previously 85 quid?
Great timing ;)! I needed one of these and the orange is more my colour than the boring, boring black (excited) Heat definitely.
Has it not been around £20 for donkey years XD
They also have it in black at the same price. https://www.mymemory.co.uk/timex-mens-ironman-triathlon-digital-watch-black-red.html
Seems they do yes!
They have a Black and Red one for the same price?
Great watch but the resin straps don't last long .
Please note that Amazon.com advertise this as a women's watch
I reckon it's a good deal for a functional quartz watch that's, well, although it's not going to survive the abuse that a ubiquitous G-Shock might, a pretty tough cookie. I like the simplicity of it. Heat added
It doesn't seem to. But even if it did it wouldn't bother me much because - unlike scratches on the glass - it would have no effect on usability of the watch. I work in engine bays quite a lot - I'm a car racer. Yes, I could take the watch off, but often that means I'll forget and leave it wherever it is. I find it far more convenient to have one that stays on all the time - showering, swimming, sleeping, working on cars.
I'd rather have scratch-resistant sapphire glass that sits proud of the metal bezel, otherwise the bezel will get scratched to hell if you do what you do. BTW, wouldn't you take your watch off to go fiddling in the engine bay of your car?
I have this Timex watch and I love it. https://www.amazon.com/Timex-Unisex-T2N651-Weekender-Slip-Thru/dp/B004VR9HP2/ref=sr_1_1?s=apparel&ie=UTF8&qid=1491251691&sr=1-1&nodeID=7141123011&psd=1&keywords=timex As you have said no silly features and is a well made . At this price level its a good choice!
on a black strap, I'd probably use it as daily work watch and out drinking, wouldnt be so worried if I got it damaged, though I've an accurist for that in saying that, its nicer than some of the watches here BTW heat added
For one day.
What's "amazing" about it?
Anything for the weekend sir?
this was £20 only a few weeks ago
Of course one is a member of a country club Snodgrass you little oink! I have to say, I met my old chum Jules for our usual game of lawn tennis only yesterday and he thought I looked positively spiffing in my new Timex watch, he says I will be the envy of all the club members when I pop in for my usual cognac later in the week.
I wore it to the country club as suggested and the doorman would not let me in. Something about too chavy. BTW Does anybody else at all on this site use a country club?
I do laugh at the RRP's of things like this ...... this is NEVER a £50 watch, it is a £20 watch ...... but it suits the SALE Bargain labels to have a silly RRP. Worth your £22 as that's just 20 minutes working .... dip yer bread, but only if you want it as no bargain here! :D
