Time to throw away the gadget that has been resting on your wrist for years. You know the one. Tells you the temperature from last Thursday and the vertical from the ski tour you did this morning. Throw it away. All you need is time and bling. The Timex Expedition E-Altimeter gives you just that. This watch gives a whole new meaning to ‘Time is Money’.
The Timex Expedition E-Altimeter Watch
Remember when Timex was really cool, then it wasn’t and then we forgot about Timex but still remember the indiglo song? Yeah me too.
Timex is back in the game with a buff line of tickers that cut the crap out of wrist watches. This analog gives you the nitty gritty and the bling to impress even the hippest hipsters at the sushi bar. They may have found the sushi bar but do they know the elevation of where they eat that delicious raw fish? I didn’t think so.
Tech Specs for the Expedition E-Altimeter
Water resistant yes, waterproof no. As you roll up the sleeves at the end of the day to wash your bamboo plates after an ample serving of pad thai, you may want to slip off this watch.
It always bugs me when people take a watch swimming and it totally bugs out. “I thought it was waterproof up to 30m?” Better just to keep it dry, I mean who really needs to know what time it is under water? When I run out of breath after my stout 24 seconds I know it’s time to high tail it to the surface. Stupid hipsters.
With this watch you can record minimum and maximum altitude. I wouldn’t worry about it too much. I mean, it would be cool to show your client in Seattle that from the office downtown to Mt. Rainier it had an increase in altitude on your watch, but….no it wouldn’t be cool. This watch is all about saving $90,000 for a watch that looks exactly like a Richard Mille as seen in GQ magazine. Ok maybe not exactly like it. (And yes I do read GQ.)
Absolutely the perfect gift for the guy who has everything. For $200 you have a watch that brings the bling. The face is big, as in Texas 72 oz. steak big. I think that is the eye catcher for this watch. If you have worn a Suunto or trainer size watch this won’t be a problem. I get a lot of compliments on this watch and your giftee will too. And possibly may get a record deal or go to lunch with Tina Fey. Endless possibilities.
“I’m gonna let it shine, this little light of mine…”
The dials on this watch are really unique because when you hit the light they really pop. This watch is simple. No funky gadgetry to keep you up late at night scrounging the manual for ridiculous button sequences.
