Watches have come a long way in the last 10 years. No longer is it a question of chrome or leather. New styles, bands, faces and even watches that claim to be smart give men options whether they’re at the office, at home or on the trail.
Having said that, the new obsession with watches and the quality and attention to detail of some mean that you can easily pay the price of a gently used car for a time piece.
Leave it to your father’s brand to give you a great option for your weekend watch. The Timex T2N654 Weekender Watch is not only versatile, giving you a variety of options for nylon straps, but it will also take a lickin’ and keep on tickin’ (sounds catchy).
Listed on online retailers like Amazon for $30 US, you really can’t go wrong picking up the watch and even four stylish straps for about $12 US. Essentially, this can give you five different looks for just over $40.
Now the face of the watch is smaller as technically this is a unisex watch, but the strap is still fairly long – which I doubt fits the wrists of most women. The one complaint some have with the watch is that the second hand can be fairly loud if it sits next to your bed at night.
However, all of this is, quite literally, a small price to pay for a good watch at a great value.
