On behalf of my father, I thank you, ...
By Tom Moore
On behalf of my father, I thank you, Timex. He passed in April of 2015 wearing this watch I bought him for Christmas. The man always said that there was no other watch that would stay running on his wrist. He was convinced he had been shocked too many times as an engineer, or had too much iron in is blood, or that he was in some way magnetic. He was 61, and never was there a time he didn't have this watch, this model, this color, on his wrist all the time. He must have gone through 40 or more. One went over Niagra Falls; one was left in Vegas; one was left with airport security, and countless others succumbed to years of rigorous use, but he never wore anything else. There were even times when he would be without one until he found it at a local store (pre-internet), and in those times he just wouldn't wear anything. Even now, he rests with this watch by his side.
I cannot thank you enough for making a product that matched his personality so well.

An impressive watch for less than $30
First thing to know about this watch is that the case is a resin (plastic) material, but the band is a nice metal finish. If you're cool with that, I think you'll find this watch to your liking. Despite the resin face, the watch still has a little heft to it, which I can appreciate. The black on gold look is also pretty striking in my opinion.
Of course, this listing notes that the watch band stretches and it's a One Size Fits All. I was glad to hear that! I've got a super tiny wrist, so I (perhaps foolishly?) expected the expansion band to be a perfect fit for me. Wrong. I had to take it to a watch store in the mall and get it resized. The guy charged me $15 for that service. I have no idea if I got ripped off or what, but whatever. I still paid less than $40 when all was said and done. Not bad.
I think the most impressive thing about this watch is just how effective the backlight is. This is my first time using an Indigo watch, but man oh man does it get the job done. I also like the way that the day of the week is shown on the watch. In a small strip right above the time, the day abbreviations appear in order. So if it's Sunday, it'll appear as "Sun" all the way to the left of the watch face. On Wednesday, it will appear as "Wed" closer to the middle. It's a nice detail. The actual numbers for the time are nice and large, making them super easy to read at a glance. Overall, I'm impressed and very pleased with this watch. And for less than $30, I'm downright elated.

Attractive, Functional, and Durable Watch
By ~*~ Sunshine ~*~
I have purchased three of these watches for my husband as he loves wearing them for a casual work watch. They are easy to read, durable, and he prefers a stretch, expansion band. One wore out, finally, after quite a few years so he's wearing the second one now. I picked up the third on sale in case they decide to discontinue making them.
The watch he's currently wearing accidentally went through a wash cycle recently. I figured that it would be DOA when I opened the washer door and was thinking to myself how fortunate it was that I'd purchased the third one. Amazingly, the watch was, and is, still working. . . and it's shiny and clean too! If that isn't a testimony to Timex's durability, I don't know what is!
I also feel that it's quite reasonably priced for a nice looking, digital watch. I highly recommend it!
