This watch has a proper Sapphire crystal over a superbly made and subtly dark coloured, high strength Zirconia full hollow ceramic case.  And being hollow, the entire movement working detail can be seen from either front or back, so a true skeleton.

My “everyday” chalk & cheese?

But I thought just for fun, I’d have a look again at what constitutes a true everyday watch and with a bias towards the ubiquitous “recreational”  or “diver like” models, because these as mostly provide features I’d consider what an everyday watch should have, often as standard.

Digital delights

Many are Japan made and although there are many, many lookalike digitals around from China, none of them have the pedigree of these or indeed the quality of the Japanese modules and displays, which in their day, were truly science fiction, and particularly in the actual design.

So basically this is an overly fancy single hand watch – and I’ve had them before, bought for the novelty, but which unfortunately in practice soon wears off – and I sold them on to some other geek somewhere.

I like it’s clean looks and easy to read dial with large digits on a very clear display, something that I feel Timex leads the way over all others.  The contrast is good and the displayed information gives the Day, the Date and the Year, plus the time – what more do you need on a quick glance.
