The Acadia has a range of devices in its line. You’ll notice that they are all more water-resistant than the weekender. The alternative can handle 165 feet (50 meters)
underwater. Unlike its sibling, Timex says that you can swim with it. However, it comes with a nylon strap, which you know isn’t water-proof.
Speaking of its strap, unfortunately, it isn’t NATO. There is a tang buckle for you to fasten the fabric into.
The timepiece is as big as its counterpart. Its case is 1.57 inches (40 mm) across
. This time around, you’re not getting a mineral window. The one on the Acadia is acrylic. Acrylic is more durable than mineral, but it still isn’t as tough
as sapphire. The window on the Acadia isn’t domed either, so worrying about scruffs is less of an issue.
The device has an indigo back-light. This helps when it’s dark out. What will also help is the watch’s luminous hands.
It doesn’t come with a brass case. Instead, there’s resin in place
. The material provides a bit of shock resistance. And as it’s not metal, corrosion will never be a concern.
Although there isn’t a chronograph, you’ll notice a calendar on the timepiece, at the 3 o'clock position. This makes it easy to read. It also has bold font.
We’re huge fans of the inner ring that tells the time in the military format.
