Alright, so, with our last two Timex reviews (here and here), we’re batting 50/50 in terms of what I’d say we had for a watch you should buy. Today’s Timex gets us back on the plus side of that equation – and is a great option for women, to boot.
The T2N825 (product page) is part of their Elevated Classics line, and features more of a bracelet-type styling than we’d see in men’s models. Here, it’s working to great effect. This is what my wife had to say about the styling:
I liked the style of it, and I really liked how the top part of the bracelet wasn’t flexible. This kept it from spinning around on my wrist like a lot of other bracelet watches do on my wrist.
In other words, that’s a checkmark in the plus column. In terms of sizing, this is definitely on the smaller side – the brass tonneau case only measures in at 18mm wide, and had a correspondingly thin 8mm height. It goes without saying, that the bracelet part of the watch is much, much thinner as well. But, again, it’s a checkmark in the plus column:
It was comfortable-not bulky. I thought it was feminine and simple in a good way.
Now, this is definitely a dressier piece, working best for an office environment, or any other environment where you’re not wearing casual clothes. As a time keeper, the watch functions just as you would expect. Of course, it could serve you in ways you might not expect, as we found – this is the watch my wife had on when she needed to start timing contractions.
In short, this is a watch she’s very attached to now – and I think this would work well for many. And, at a price of only $65, it’s an extremely affordable option – one I would recommend you give a look.
Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
