In this article, we take an look at one of the popular affordable watches from the Timex collection. We will be doing a review on the Timex Expedition Scout. This watch comes in different colors and variations. Today, however; we will be looking at one of the more inexpensive variants. We will be taking a quick look at the specs, design, and features of this watch. This is our Timex Expedition review.
The Timex Expedition Scout uses an analog dial with a dial window made of scratch resistant mineral material. It features Japanese Quartz movement, powered by a lithium metal battery, which should easily give 3 to 5 years of battery life. The brass case is 40 millimeters in diameter and 10 millimeters thick. The bezel is made of stainless steel. This one has a leather band that is 8 inches long, 20 millimeters thick, and uses a buckle type clasp, although there are other versions that use a nylon band. The Timex Expedition Scout is water resistant up to 165 feet.
The Timex Expedition Scout is simple in appearance, similar to the Timex Weekender. This watch is a rugged, military style design that is definitely suited for outdoor use. This version sports an all black dial, with white numerals and white minute and hour hands, as well as an orange second hand. The outer edges of the dial show the military time. There is also a date window on the inner right side of the dial next to the 3 o’clock position, but it is small and difficult to see. This version of the Expedition features a brown leather strap, which makes it slightly more elegant than its nylon counterparts.
The Expedition has a date window which can easily be set by pulling the stem of the watch about halfway out and turning it until you get it to the accurate date. This watch, of course, also has Timex’s staple Indiglo backlighting feature, which is accessed by pressing down on the knob. This is very useful for nighttime or low light situations. The Timex Expedition Scout is water resistant for up to 165 feet, so you can wear it while going for a swim, but it is not recommended for deep diving.
