The watch can be worn by smaller wrists, but it’s the largest timepiece on our list. The Timex Weekender has a 1.57 inch (40 mm) case. Thankfully, its strap isn’t too wide. It’s made of leather. If it were wide, you’d have a sweaty wrist.
We don’t know the type of leather used. However, the one on the T2P495 feels premium. It’s also quite soft.
The weekender is another field watch. Leather isn’t the best for field watches. They’re meant for the outdoors, which would result in a lot of muck getting on it. As you know, the material isn’t very waterproof. This causes dirt to stain it.
You’re probably wondering if the device is water-resistant. The answer is yes. Depths of 100 feet (30 meters) are possible. Timex says that the T2P495 can handle brief immersions, just don’t swim with it.
There are large Arabic numerals on its dial. As its display is a light-cream, its dark black markers pop. The timepiece especially pops when it’s dark out – it has an indigo backlight.
Like Hamilton’s Khaki watch, you’re getting dual rings on its display. One of them reads the hours in military time while the other does so in a 12-hour format.
It has a regular mineral dial. Timex promises that it’s extra scratch-resistant.
The watch is not automatic. It’s Japanese quartz. As it’s a field watch, this is exactly what you want – quartz movements are more accurate than their automatic counterparts.
What makes it special:
It’s quite affordable.
