A fresh feminine approach to our favorite watch turns our 1977 classic in to a crisp modern timepiece. A gold-tone 38mm case and blue leather strap with bright accents proves what's old can be new again. To set time - pull crown all the way out and turn to correct time. Push crown in to restart. For screw-in setting crown, push crown in while turning clockwise to tighten.
I've purchased Timex watches literally for decades. This watch is simple and straightforward, with a traditional (non-digital) face, all things I was looking for. The date function stopped working in the first few weeks, but it's really too small to read, so that wasn't a problem for me. The problem occurred 8 months after purchase, when the battery ran down. After replacing it with a fresh battery, I was unable to close the case. I called Timex Product Support; they told me a "special tool" is needed, which only Timex has. Within the 1 year warranty period, they will replace the battery for an $8 handling charge, and the process takes up to 4 weeks. The hassle of mailing the watch out and losing its use for a month -- while paying 30% of the original cost just to replace the battery-- is simply unacceptable.
This watch was pretty. I have two other TIMEX watches that the face is a little smaller than this one but similar in style. If you have a small wrist like me, I wear a size 6.75 bracelet, you may not like it because it is a rather large face. I ended up sending mine back because it was just too big for my little wrist. The other style that is comparable in appearance is the Easy Reader and I bought the 40th Anniversary style one in black/silver and one in tan/gold. I love these watches they are larger enough without over powering my wrist and I have had no problems with them and wear them often depending on clothing color I'm wearing on a given day.
Within a couple months, this watch had water trapped behind the glass, even though it is rated water-resistant to 30 M and had only been exposed to splashing. In addition to this, the Indiglo back light stopped working. Since the watch was in-warranty, I sent it to Timex to be repaired. Even though the watch was in-warranty, they still charged me an $8 "handling fee." After a couple weeks of waiting, I got the watch back in the mail today. While the moisture is gone, the back light still doesn't work for more than a split second. They also removed the band attachment components, so I would have to buy a whole new band even though I had detached the band before sending the watch in for repair, per their instructions. It's such a shame, because I loved the watch display. Zero stars.
This watch is classy, simple, and I love that it shows me the date even at this fantastic price point. I really appreciate the leather band, and it keeps time perfectly. Never ahead or behind. Can’t beat it!
I have other Timex's and love them, so when I saw this gorgeous Rose gold with a bright pink leather strap, at Amazon's incredible pricing, I just HAD to get it.
You will finally be able to read your watch without your glasses! The band was somewhat stiff at first but has since softened up. Good looks and an accurate time piece. Well priced for value.The indigo light is a wonderful addition.
I have a bit of a vision problem, and was looking for a watch with a large, clear face. I didn't want anything fancy, just one I could glance at and quickly see the time. This watch certainly fulfills this need!
The watch is great. I particularly like the large face so it is easy to glance down and see the time in addition the watch strap is a decent length. I have small/medium sized wrist but often find ladies watchstraps very short. This leather strap is great and so I can adjust it to tight around my wrist if I am training or loosen it for the rest of the time.
Love this watch, it's big, bold, and beautiful. Colour of metal is lovely, and leather strap really well made and finished. So easy to read too, especially with the Indiglo light for reading it in the dark.
Quite a large face for a ladies watch but nice strap and easy to wear on wrist. Good quality leather strap also
I do love timex watches and this pink and gold one is really beautiful and people have commented that it suits me
