Timex T41711 Expedition Camper Fabric
In 2005 I needed a watch, something with a cloth band. I found this at PX/BX and figured for ~$25 dollars at the time I couldn't go wrong. I have beat the crap out of it through everyday use since them. One reviewer is so right when he says it grows on you. I feel naked with out it, however when it's on you don't even feel it as it's light and once the band is broken in it's super soft. I lost that original watch in 2008 (foolishly leaving it somewhere). So I immediately purchased a new one and had it to this day (2012). There are no scratches on it, and I've only replaced the battery once (not because it died but because I figured 3 years was a long time on one battery and it might behoove me to make sure it doesn't die when I need it). I have washed it, I have worn it in the rain. I have literally run it under water to clean off layers of mud. No issues. It says "water resistant" on the back, no meters either, so they don't say it can handle water. Mine has.
The watch is smaller, which make it also very comfortable. I hate how companies assume all men want to wear a dinner plate on their wrist. I tried to find a "fancy" watch of this size and it's impossible. So I wear this even when I'm dressed to impress. After all, for a watch at this price range I'm extremely impressed.
One more thing. The glow in the dark feature on mine is still going strong after all this time. If nothing else, get this watch just as a back up to throw in your bug out bag. Analog has extra uses that a digital can't provide as well, like finding north via the sun.
I bought a black one about a year back, but it's strap wrapped under the watch piece. I did not like that at all. I don't recommend that one. It lifted up off my wrist slightly because of the band slipping under.
