Now, in our lastÂ his ‘n hers review covering Timex models, the models were from the same line (Weekender), but they didn’t exactly share an identical look to them. Â So, today we eliminate that complaint!
The models in question are from Timex’s Elevated Classics line. Â The designs have an older feel to them, but they’re not quite to the point of being retro. Â Just a simple design that feels like it’s been around for a good long time.
- Polished and brushed plated finish on the brass case and steel expansion bracelet
- Textured brown dial with polished numerals and hands
- Quartz movement
- Mineral crystal
- 30 meter water resistance rating
The main difference between the two pieces (other than styling variations) would be in size – the women’s model measures in at 32mm, while the men’s is 40mm. Â With the men’s model, you also add in a quick-set date feature (there is no date on the women’s version), as well as the Indiglo backlight. Â Not sure why this was left out of the women’s model; perhaps to reduce the size of the case.
In daily wear, these performed just fine. Â The expansion bracelet was comfortable – though you’ll want to be sure of the sizing here. Â To the best of my knowledge, there’s really no way to adjust them any smaller – so you may want to find them locally so you can try them on, if your wrists are on the smaller side.
Here’s what my wifeÂ thought of the ladies model:
I liked the simple lines of the bracelet and numerals and watch overall – it looks classy and timeless. The bracelet itself is a little bit large – but comfortable; I love the color of the dial. It is something I would not hesitate to wear to the office; on the other hand, it seems to dressy for casual wear, but too casual for formal wear.
As with some of the other lower-end Timex models we’ve looked at, the quartz movement is on the nosier side (this must be due to the brass case). Â This isn’t really an issue, until you’re in a quiet room (say, trying to sleep) – then it may be a distraction for you.
In the end, these bring what we’ve come to expect from Timex – simple and classic styling in a very affordable package (only $58 for either one). Â Frankly, this is a great option, that will keep from breaking the bank, if you want to have a matching watch to your significant other that isn’t a piece of junk.
