Timex Expedition Military Field (T49875)

The design of Timex Expedition Military Field (T49875) is also known as navigator or pilot in some brands like IWC or Hamilton. It is classic and simple design based on the military watches in WWII. This watch is 42mm but it is light. 42mm is not be big for an adult. The stainless steel case is not brushed brightly. It looks steel grey titanium rather than silver. Maybe, military watches cannot be too sharp that can easily be discovered by enemy. The strap is green nylon with leather on interior. This arrangement should be due to the fact that wearing leather strap is more comfort than nylon when the weather is hot.

There is a date display in 3 o’clock. QuickDate feature is supported i.e. date can be adjusted clockwise / anti-clockwise. The crown is a little bit big, however. When pressing the crown, electroluminescent will be activated and you can see the time clearly when there is not light at night. This feature is good as you can read time at night. Timex named this feature as Indiglo.

Timex Unisex T2N651 Weekender does not name itself as military watch, however, the design of this watch is showing the military watch soul. 38mm metal case, green nylon strap, clear hour numeric display, a smart red second hand are all the essential elements of military watch. This watch is Indiglo enable The watch is lightweight and comfortable to wear. However, this watch has no date display.

One interesting feature for this watch is that, user can buy strap replacement for Timex watch. Besides the strap, different color and style of Timex Unisex Weekenders are available. Check them out in Amazon here.

Timex Men Camper

Timex Men Camper is made up of lightweight and durable resin case. The case is 34mm that is the smallest among the others. If you have large wrist, this watch is not for you. Indeed, some consumers said that the small case is not suitable for 24 hours numeric display.

I am wondering if this watch is for camper? Why Indiglo is not included?
