Timex Weekender Fairfield Review

Timex’s all-new Fairfield is a good addition to the Weekender line, though it’s considerably more expensive than other versions of the Weekender. If you live in the USA, where you can easily find the Fairfield for under $60, it’s a good buy. If you live in Canada, where it’s $95 and up, you have to really like the Fairfield for the value proposition to make sense- as a Canadian, I don’t know if I think it does.

Timex Expedition Field Chronograph Review

The Expedition Field Chronograph is a good watch, even if the quirks of the watch make it a little clunky to use. If you’re picky or particular, the chronograph movement might drive you a little bonkers. Other than that, it’s proven itself durable and if you like its military-inspired looks – as I do – it’s a great watch to wear. I recommend it.

Timex T2M979 Review

With date display, a day/night indicator, and a power reserve display, the T2M979 is a complicated automatic at a low price point. Be aware that the automatic movement is of unknown origin, but is likely a Chinese-manufactured DG28. If you’re specifically looking for an inexpensive, complicated auto, consider this Timex. Otherwise, there are better watches worth considering at this price point.

Timex SL T2N289 Review

The Sea Gull ST16 movement used inside the T2N289 is pretty good and well-known in the affordable watch world. Timex did a good job styling the T2N289, though the build quality is average at best. If you can find it priced around $150 or less it’s good value, too. I’ve seen it as high as $250, and frankly, it isn’t worth anything close to that.
