Timex – Expedition Quartz Firefighter Watch


Timex is well-known in the market for producing durable and affordable watches, so there’s no surprise that this Expedition model brings so much value for the price. It’s also a field watch, which may make it look a bit bulky, but it does a fantastic job in any environment.

The stainless steel case is brushed and has an aged aspect that fits extremely nicely with the brown leather strap. Also, the bezel gives the watch a rugged aspect and it’s marked with the cardinal points and the degrees of a circle.

The deal has a beige creamy color and features both 12h & 24h formats, with an outer ring of markings for seconds. The watch uses Arabic numerals for both formats and there is a date window in the 3 o’clock position. Overall, the face of the watch is very pleasant and easy to read.

Equipped with a three-hands Quartz movement, the watch is fitted with Indiglo night-light with night mode, which is extremely helpful when there is no other light source around. The minute and hour hands are also lumed, which improves visibility in low light conditions.

To activate the Indiglo, you have the press on the crown. The light won’t stay on for long, but it’s enough to let you see the time and date. Speaking of which, to set the time and date, you will also use the crown. This is a push/pull crown with two stages – you pull to the maximum upward position and you set the time and then, if you push, you’ll get to the position where you can set the date.

While this Timex is a hefty timepiece, it can be easily integrated into any environment as long as you don’t mind the wide strap (22mm) and big case. The strap is very soft and there’s even some padding so you can wear the watch for as long as you want. However, the light color is not stain-resistant and may get soiled very easily.
