    Stem broke

  • I should give it 1 star as it doesn't work now but I enjoyed it for the month it worked. Hopefully Timex will replace it for me. Cook looking watch, comfortable & Indiglo works well at night. Not even sure how the crown came off. It was working, then not. I don't think I even snagged it on anything...???

    More than expected

  • I found a wicked deal on this watch and grabbed it. I had my eye on the Timex Scout for a while and was torn between this model and the tan version. I picked this one up on account of the yellow second hand. I wasn't anticipating the grey, almost gunmetal case finish. The tone was hard to tell from the pictures but it's finished evenly and pleasing to the eye. My plan is to couple it with a nice leather band and have an almost criminally affordable, good looking everyday piece that's casual but classy enough for most things. The lume was an unexpected feature; it's really well done and holds strong throughout the night. The Indiglo is extremely positive. The watch can be best described as clean. The relevant details on the face are bright, the face is set deep and visually pops, and the presentation is impressive. The subtle, passive location of the date marker is gorgeous. The movement is quartz so I'm assuming it's indestructible, but I've heard reports of stem breakage. It hasn't happened to me but I see why people give it a second chance. The movement is "loud" relative to watches. It isn't anything you'll hear during normal use or on your nightstand, but in dead silence you can hear it quietly but confidently ticking at about elbow distance. The second hand hit its marks well with minor alignment imperfection that can be detected with a critical eye. I found letting the minute hand lead by a small amount while setting the time made for the most accurate hits with it. I really can't say why Timex went with brass for the case material. I'd think stainless is cheaper and more practical in general, although it might be harder to machine and finish. If the finish holds and the stem sets an example among the other Scouts, I'll use this watch long into the future and consider it a steal. The case is a little fat, if only by the most infinitesimal amount, which seems noticeable when looking for a problem but obstructs in no way visually while wearing or insofar as comfort. I might have asked for an indestructible screw-down crown and waterproof to 100 meters rather than 50 just to impress, at the cost of the indiglo feature. So there are a few expected technicalities that Timex seems to have reliably bypassed that, if resolved, would easily justify double the asking price and dominate that market. That said, even well beyond the price point it's an amazingly good looking and bright piece. I'm optimistic about its durability because the fit and finish seems tough. I've managed to accidentally smack mine against a hard surface (go me) without a scratch, which was impressive.

    Great watch in need of a crown guard

  • I love everything about this watch, but I owned it for less than a month before the crown (watch stem) broke off. I was not rough with the watch and thought to get a replacement, but judging by other reviews this watch stem issue is not uncommon. Without any watch design expertise, perhaps a crown guard similar to the design of the "Timex Expedition" would alleviate this problem?

    Needs a stem guard

  • First watch stem broke. Got a free replacement. Drop the second watch and stem broke. Next watch will have a stem guard to protect the stem. Loved the watch, but get a different one now.

    Great watch

  • Purchased this watch recently and I really like it a lot. Looks great, a little bigger than the classic camp/field watches that Timex has sold for years so it meets a more contemporary standard there. The nylon band looks good, but is a little small for my larger wrist, swapped it for an olive colored NATO strap and it looks great. Great casual everyday watch. Recommend highly.
