Great looking watch with Indiglo night feature and water resistance.
I like the classic looks of this watch and the band is super comfortable, made of nylon and what appears to be leather trim..comfortable, easy to read, Performance, reliable, Rugged, ValueTimex is a reputable brand - every Timex watch I've owned has lasted me a long time with no problems and they provide a huge selection of styles to choose from.
I collect watches, primarily analog types, and prefer the classic and military styles. The current trend toward mounting a clock on your arm and calling it a watch seems silly to me and I don't think the fad will last. After all, a fad last a season, a classic last forever!
Even though I have a lot of watches I don't wear most of them. When I needed an everyday work watch I went looking to an old standby, Timex. I found this particular model (T40091) appealing because it mixes a simple classic style with some modern conveniences such as a very reliable quartz movement and the ingeneous indiglo light feature. The watch is the perfect size for a full grown man and is made of brushed stainless steel, like a serious watch should be. Upon very close inspection I could find no flaws in the case, the machining was simply perfect.
The glass fit perfectly and is flush with the bezel. I wish it had been slightly recessed but its okay. I like how they put a slight raise in the case around the crown to act as a protective guard. The face of the watch is very simple and easy to read. I even like the slightly odd face color. It's somewhere between a dark olive drab and gray and in certain light it can appear black. It gives the watch an older look, as if its been around for twenty or thirty years. The hands are pretty standard and the luminous hands work but just barely. In a watch of this price range its fine and besides you have the indiglo feature so its really not needed. About the only thing I wish this watch had is a cyclops over the date. My eyes aren't what the used to be and seeing that little date is getting harder every year. This watch also has the hack feature so setting the time accurately is easy. I have a habit of checking it almost daily (a little OCD).
Things I wish Timex would change...add the cyclops over the date, remove the extra face writing to make it even simpler, make the secondary numerals just a tad larger, change the band.
The band is not bad but seems to come a little small. I have medium sized wrists for a man and it fits me on the second to last hole. I seems like they should have made it about a 1/2" longer. I plan to replace the stock band with a NATO band so this isn't a big deal.
Overall, I think you can't go wrong with a Timex.comfortable, easy to read, Performance, reliable, Rugged, stylish, Value, Worn all the time, classic styleband slightly too smallTimex watches are probably the best bang for the buck in time pieces today. Others may have more retail value but I WEAR a Timex everyday.
I have owned my field watch now for over 2 years and I really like it. It has worked very well on hot summer days and in the winter with the temperature near 0?. It keeps very good time. I could recommend this watch to anyone looking for a good field watch that can also be worn with casual attire.
Rugged watch. Handsome, with military looks. Indiglo which is always handy. Have owned other Timex's' since a boy in the 50's. That old saying "Keeps a licking, and keeps on ticking". I still remember the TV ads. I believe it's still true.
I love the Expedition watch metal Field ... I need a watch that can hold up I am a little rough on them this one looks good and is tough at the same time I bought it because it is me... I have no other way to say it...
Absolutely perfect watch. I love everything about it. The band is black and brown, so I can wear it no matter what. My wife did a great job with this gift..Rugged, stylish, Performance, comfortable, Worn all the time, Battery life, easy to read, reliable, love the indigloDurable watches. Quality built and reliable
Nice watch, easy to read except the first digit (when it is a "1") on two digit dates (i.e., 12). The 1 is very close to the edge and the second digit is larger (e.g., a 12 can be mistake as a 2 to my old eyes)..stylish, Valuefirst date diget hard to readgood value
