Okay, I know this is primarily a vintage watch forum, but I am posting this topic in the correct category! I have recently really gotten into the new Timex Expedition watches. These watches are sold at a lot of stores like Macy's, JC Penney, Walmart and Target. Wow, what great designs they have. I like the cases, dials and straps. I've bought two--1 at Target for $39.95 and 1 at Walmart for $59.95.

They seem to be made of quality materials, at least the case and strap are! Of course I don't know about the inner quartz movements, but I'm guessing they're also pretty well made.

Anybody else stopped to look at these watches in the stores and maybe even bought one?

I do stop in at the Time Factory (outlet store) when I'm up that way. On last visit, I picked one up at 80% off original price. A good casual watch....

Sorry now I did not grab the remainder of the TMX series they came out with a few years back. They were blowing them out at $125.00

80% off is a great deal!

I think one of my Expedition Timex' has a 10 year battery, according to the product literature.

I picked up a Timex a few years ago. It hasn't left my workplace since. I wanted a quartz for work so it can sit in my locker over weekends or vacations without losing time. I chose this one primarily for the bracelet.

Dave, very nice watch. I take it it's been reliable since you said you purchased it a few years ago!

Haven't needed to change the battery yet. It's probably been four years now.

Dave, I know this was posted quite some time ago, but was wondering if you had a model number or guidance on where we might find a similar Timex. That work quartz looks great.

I can look for the model number when I get back to work but it shouldn't be hard to find one like this. I bought this one at Wal-Mart.

I've found a few similar but the numbers and hour/minute hand combination has been difficult to find!

Sorry I've forgotten to look for a model number. When I'm at work, there's too much else to think about. :cry:

There are no identifying codes on the watch itself but I did a little Google and I believe the model number is T2M561.
