Solid watch good for men of all ages, well designed black in colour with black leather band, functions are easy to set you dont need A Levels. I bought this watch because my son has one for over 2 years and I always admired it. The only thing you have to be careful with is the strap container it might burst if not careful.

Plus = Nice size watch and very good quality. Not too bulky.
Negative = Second hand stops on the 12 o'clock mark, which does not stop the watch. This might be something to do with the stopwatch function, but i can't see how to rectify it in the booklet.
Overall = Happy, but wish I could sus the second hand out.

Very pleased with the watch. The contrast of the white hands on the black background make it easy to read for my tired 50yr old eyes!. It's really smart looking, good value and not too complicated to use. I'm particularly pleased that this watch has an alarm function. The leather strap is confortable. I honestly can't think of any negative points about this watch.

Timex T42351: The Complicated Watch that Wasn't

I have to admit that I bought this watch because of a videogame. I had almost given up analog watches for everyday use because I needed a wake-up alarm, which I believed they just could not have. However I played this game where the hero has a -fictional- analog watch with an alarm, which made me wonder if there was a real world (affordable) alternative. A few clicks later I had bought the Timex T42351 that I am going to review.

The watch comes in a rather flimsy cardboard box (thanks WatchShop for padding it!) with a display stand, and an instructions leaflet that you are HIGHLY encouraged to read before you operate it (not that the watch will break if you mishandle it, but you will better understand how it works and you will not mistakenly believe it to be faulty).

This is a big chunky 'adventurer's' watch -if adventurers ever wear watches, as they probable just ask the time to exotic individuals they meet- and it is therefore best suited for people who like big chunky watches. Though hefty, it is not as heavy that you should tighten it to the point of discomfort. Credit for this goes to the properly contoured attachment points for the strap.

The fancy numbered ring is fixed and flush with the glass, leaving it too exposed for my particular taste. The same goes with the chronograph buttons, which might get tangled on loose-knit wool sweaters and the like.

Some reviewers complain about how this watch looks flat black in pictures when it is not. Well, it is not too glossy either, and in any case the white numbering -and stitching- on black gives it a distinctive 'speedometer' look. This may be too sporty for formal wear, which gives you another excuse for not dressing formal.

The leather strap is also subject to criticism because of its reduced durability in wet conditions. However I do not see many people swimming in leather trunks! Back on dry land you get a reinforced strap with a blackened buckle and double keepers to take up the slack, which is not that bad. A negative point is that the white stitiching will look dirty in a blink of an eye.

For an analog watch, this model comes with a load of functions:

-Independent setting for hour hand and minute hand (great for time-zone jumping and summer/winter time).

-Calendar (easy to set thanks to the independent hour hand).

-Indiglo illuminated face, with a 'nocturnal' option that keeps the light on for a few seconds.

-Traditional wake-up alarm.

-Under 60 minute alarm (aka egg-boiler alarm).


All these features are better understood once you go through the instructions detailed on the leaflet. The analog interface may look puzzling at first, as it is not as intuitive as digital displays. However, once you know how each thing works, the operation becomes even easier than on some digital watches.

It is important to note that the chronograph may appear to be faulty if you do not follow the initializing procedure in the manual (the needle will not reset exactly to the 12 O'clock position). You just need to do this once and the chrono will run fine. By the way, the 'seconds' hand is actually the chronograph hand and will only turn when the chronograph is running. The actual seconds hand is the one on the smaller dial near the 6 O'clock.

The alarm is not lower nor louder than on other watches. It is controlled by an independent crown which moves two radial cursors around the inside of the outer ring, one for the hour and another for the minute. Pulling this crown a notch activates the wake-up alarm, whereas pulling it two notches activates the under 60 minute alarm. A problem might arise in the event of the alarm crown being accidentally pushed back in, therefore deactivating the alarm (most probable if worn on the left wrist).

In conclusion, this is an excellent watch for the price, provided that you are aware of the peculiar type of gadget that you are buying and how you are going to use it.

Works as advertised. Smooth operation: buttons and crowns are big and easy to push, pull, and turn. Easy to set alarm. Easy time zone changes. Chronograph functions. Split time feature. Quartz accuracy. Dial flashes when alarm sounds. Looks even better than the picture.

Cons: Dial contrast is not as pronounced as in picture, which makes it a little harder to see the hands without my glasses than I anticipated, but I can manage. Alarm is too quiet for me to hear in most circumstances, but I do have a profound high-frequency hearing loss. Young people won't be bothered by either of these issues.

I'm satisfied with the watch. It looks good and has good features.

Overall, a quality, high-tech look and function in a watch that is accurate, affordable and from a company that has a reputation for durable watches. Status hounds, look elsewhere.

Hadley Roma sells a black stainless bracelet that will fit this watch, but they also sell high-quality deployant clasps to fit the leather band, for those who don't particularly like buckled bands.

One more thing, if you don't read the instructions before you begin playing with the watch functions, you will think the watch is defective. The watch requires some simple to perform calibrations for the chronograph dials to function properly.

This is an excellent well-priced watch with a host of functions to match. The alarm is intuitive and can be set easily and the chronograph works accurately. The bezel is fixed, but the build quality is good and the strap good quality. A good all rounder from a quality supplier, next day delivery as promised and competitively priced. Excellent all round.
