HANDY TIP: A huge plus for me has been that there are plenty of very colorful replacement watchbands for these Timex watches on eBay for around $1 each (if you're not in a hurry as they come shipped from China.) I have purchased 4 different solid color and striped watchbands to switch around between my two watches...just search for "20mm Ballistic Nylon Watch Band." They fit perfectly and are only a buck! Change the band and it's (almost) like having a new watch!
Lastly, the face color is dark blue and a nice contrast with the silver case, numbers and hands. Besides, they take a licking and...well, you know the rest : - )
1. Unlike my standard Weekenders, which you can hear ticking from across the room, the Weekender Chrono's tick is whisper quiet even in stopwatch mode.
2. The 40mm case is a nice size — big enough to draw the occasional compliment, but not so large that it gets in the way.
3. The simple design works in nearly every situation. For example, it classes up nicely with a leather band.
4. It's cheap. Well below $50, I don't have to baby this watch. If it gets bumped, scratched or smashed, it's no big deal.
5. This is my favorite. You can adjust the hour without moving the minute hand. This makes the Weekender Chrono a great watch to travel with because adjusting timezones less fiddly.
- The back has fallen off multiple times. This happens when I drop it, and it's hard to get the back reattached. You have to apply a lot of pressure evenly, which basically means that you should take it to a watch repair shop. I think it's happened to me 3 times total. Maybe I should just be less clumsy, but it's easy for the strap to slip out of your fingers while you're putting it on.
- The chronograph hands don't reset to where they should. This is a bit hard to explain, but you can kind of see it in my photo. When you reset the timer, the large second hand and the small hands in the upper left and upper right circles should all point straight up, toward zero. Mine did that when the watch first arrived, but over time all three have gotten out of alignment. Now the second hand starts at -4 seconds, then sub-second hand starts at +0.05 seconds, and the minute hand starts at -4 minutes. That means you have to do some math every time you use it to add back those minutes that should have been zeroed out to start.
- And the Indiglow glow light stopped working a couple months ago.
Even with those issues, I still wear and enjoy the watch, but have to dock it a couple stars. Would probably give it 3.5 stars if that were an option.
Some people simply can not read :) or look after and for them it is easier to send back an item than read 5 rows and doing a 5 second job. Pity for them ;)
Nightmode and indiglo features are also awesome.
Overall it is an excellent watch in terms of price/ratio, but definitely not for the snobs(dumbs) whom are expecting Tissot quality for 50 bucks.
The watch looks and feels great, it's very good quality, the strap is very soft and comfortable and I've worn it every day since I got it.
However sadly, I must take a star off its rating though because of small defects that bother me. I have the same issue with Indiglo as the majority (or even all) watches of this model. The bottom part of the watch face would not illuminate, it just looks ugly, as well as some other small defects in the print of the numbers on the face, the hands not landing precisely on the watch face markings and such. Small things that aren't issues but just betray lower standards of quality and I'm only mentioning them so that Timex knows we notice this.
Lovely watch in any case. I'll also give you this cool way of tucking the remainder of the strap when there's a lot of it so it doesn't stick out, it's very elegant, I find :)
