So, Melissa Wanted a Timex Weekender Reversible
I’ve had a couple of Timex Weekenders: the Weekender 40 I reviewed last year, and currently a Weekender Chronograph. I really like them and think they’re great watches. No surprises when Melissa started hinting that she wanted a Weekender of her own. Her daily wearer – a ladies Hamilton Viewmatic Auto – is starting to show its life story.
The Weekender we got for her was the TW2P65300GP. This version comes with a blue and polka dot reversible nato strap. The strap is super simple to switch from polka-dot to not, though Melissa has complained that the strap is a little irritating on her wrist after being worn for a few hours. We’ll switch out the strap with something a little less irritating later when Melissa finds a 16mm strap she likes.
EDIT: Strap culprit found. There is a loop that secures the end of the strap, and the glue that binds the loop together is itchy. Turn that side outward, problem solved.
Because my wife is a cheeseball (I am too) we’ve got a couple of cheesy his and hers wrist shots. 🙂
