A modern take on a classic military design, the Timex Men's T499869J Expedition Rugged Chronograph Watch adds a stylish yet rugged complement to your everyday wear. The bold dial features three sub-dials that track minutes, seconds, and 1/20 of a second for up to 30 minutes. An easy to operate date window is located at 4 o’clock. With the Quick Date function, you can set the date on the watch without turning the crown for every 24-hour period. Just pull the stem halfway out, and turn until desired date is reached. It also offers water resistance to 330 feet (100 meters) and a durable leather strap. The Indiglo night-light uniformly lights the surface of the watch dial using patented blue electroluminescent lighting technology. It uses less battery power than most other watch illumination systems, enabling your watch battery to last longer.

I like analog watches. I've owned digital LCD watches; I still have a Timex LCD watch that I hang on my field vest while doing work. My search for an easy to read analog led me to this.
Criteria: Contrasting hands and face. Standard hour numbers (not roman numerals). Glow in the dark hands. Pushbutton background light.
I knew I didn't want a face with non working features that looks there is more to the watch.
Pros: Contrasting hands and face Easy to read The light button is protected by a shroud so I don't accidentally press it when I bend my wrist waterproof I can change the hour hand for time zone changes without the minute hand moving. Time changes are easy Date is easy to read The timer is easy to use The indiglo light is perfect
Cons: The big second hand is used for the timer (the second hand is in the eye at 6 oclock) The brown leather strap doesn't look good with this watch (I...
Colors are definitely not truly represented here. The photographer either did some serious color correction or post editing that obfuscated what the watch really looks like, or I got a completely different watch. The brown represented on screen is a reddish ox brown if you want to call it that , but my item is a dull grayish brown and the watch face is so grey it looks black......so I don't know if the leather missed the tanning process or something.... The weight is good face size is decent enough..... All in all nice product but this is NOT what I purchased and I am still somewhat disappointed. So this is a plea to Amazon to address issues of color misrepresentation ....this is not the first product I have experienced this with .
Just got it in the mail and I like it so far. I like the size, the feel, the style. As others may have mentioned, the band isn't as dark of a brown as in the picture. But that doesn't matter to me, especially since I'm likely going to change it anyway. That doesn't mean I don't like the band though, just a matter of preference and style.
The leather band is a nice look at times and different from the usual watches I wear.
I think this complements my watch collection well, I will likely use it as a go-to watch when I don't know which one to wear.
EDIT: It took me a while to write this, but very soon after I got it- a few days at most- it had an issue. The second hand(which is used as a stopwatch on this watch) is stuck on the 5min(Or the 1) mark, instead of centering on the 12. Don't know why that happened but I can't fix it. I read of it happening to others. I'm not too upset because no one else will notice but me, and because I didn't pay much...
