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.
