Today, we’re bringing you another review of a Timex model, the Weekender (specific one reviewed: T2N647KW). Let’s have a look-see, shall we?
For starters, this particular model is part of Timex’s affordable range of watches. This model in particular has an MSRP $40, but I was able to track it down on Amazon for closer to $26. What all do you get for that low entry price?
- Polished silver-tone brass case; 38mm wide, 10mm thick
- 20mm nylon strap
- Mineral crystal
- Quartz movement
- Indiglo backlight
All in all, a very competent watch. I wore it for a few days over the weekend, and it just becomes unnoticeable on your wrist, due to it’s light weight. If you sit in a quiet room, though, you’ll quickly realize the watch is there.
Why? The quartz movement contained within is about the noisiest quartz watch I’ve run across. I imagine this is due to a combination of factors, primarily the movement dictated by the pricepoint, and the very minimalistic case. Not a dealbreaker, but something you should be aware of.
As with the other Timex we recently reviewed, this contains a very competent Indiglo backlight. It’s a bit odd to see a fully-black dial light up, but I must say, it makes the watch plenty readable in the dark. I wouldn’t have minded some lume on the hands as well, but, again, for this price? Hard to complain.
This watch should work for just about anyone – man or woman, adult or child. The 38mm case is fairly unisex, and there are quite a few color combinations with the dial and strap. Heck, for the price, might as well pick up a couple!
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.
