Weekender™ Chrono Oversize is rated out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Daniel W from Stylish Bang For Your Buck Great looking timepiece. The blue w/ burgandy & cream NATO strap looks great w/ the off-white watch face. Nice contemporary size dial looks good and is easy to read. The date window doesn't clutter the face and is easily read. Really good looking watch and so reasonably priced. The name says it all, very casual for weekend wear and nights out. With a traditional leather band this would dress up nicely. Great value and very clean, attractive design. I really like the font choice for the numbers. I think they really make the look. The hands of a thin strip of luminescent paint which work pretty well. To test them I hold them up against a bright light to charge them and see how strong they can shine. They do a nice job, as good as any other watch I've owned. Nice and bright, easy to read in the dark. Setup and chrono use are easy too. The manual that comes in the box is all about the water resistance (30m, enough for showering and, in my opinion, days at the beach or a dip in the pool) and not much else. Not to worry, setup is easy to figure out. You can pull the crown out 2 notches. The middle position moves the hour hand to set the date and AM/PM correctly. The outer crown position sets the minute hand to correct the time. Since the hour hand moves independently you can get the hands to line up perfectly if that's the kind of thing you're excited about. The chrono feature is neat. The top button starts and stops. The bottom button resets. The bottom small dial on the face is the second hand for the watch. The top left measures timed minutes and the top right stays still until you stop the timer. It then springs ahead to show the stopped time down to the 20th of a second. The large hand that appears to be a traditional seconds hand is the chronograph's second hand. It ticks ahead to count seconds right along w/ the small seconds dial below. Handy, easy to read, and looks great. Unfortunately the downloadable manual on the product page doesn't mention the chrono features, and neither did the sheet that came with the watch. A quick Google search found this manual, and the chrono functions are listed under 'type 3'. It also mentions something cool called "Night Mode" which is pretty cool. If you press the crown in from its resting position closest to the case the Indiglo fires up. If you press and hold for 4 second it will flash once and enter "Night Mode". Now pressing any of the buttons makes the light come on for 3 seconds for the next 8 hours. How cool is that? If you want to shut it off sooner press and hold for 4 seconds again. It will flash to let you know things are back to normal. This is a great watch. It is quiet, attractive, affordable, and functional. Everything I could ask for in a casual wearing watch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by parcher877 from Wonderful, classy watch! I loved the looks of this watch so gave it to my husband for Christmas. He loved it!!! He wears it when he wants to have a more stylish business casual look. He is constantly getting positive feedback on it from total strangers. He could not be more pleased or proud. He has several other watches...all good looking and costing much, much more but this watch is his favorite. A great value!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jmed from Looking for something fun and waterproof Pretty good looking watch, especially for the money. If your large wristed you may not be able to wear it. I'm on second hole and it wraps sideways around wrist as I'm somewhat small wristed. It doesn't come with instructions as your instructed to go online and download particular watch. Good luck with that, still trying to find after twenty some page printout. So in essence two functions are useless.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Patrik from Customized my Weekender Chrono Oversize! Perfect! TIMEX offers to customize some models. I choose the Weekender Chrono Oversize. Case, dial and strap. As I wanted it. Top of is the offer to engrave the case back. "Forever in love, Cony". This makes my Weekender my very favorite watch. Another detail which usually fails is the length of the leather strap. Long enough and smooth to fit perfectly my strong wrist.
