Timex is a company that makes many different types of watches. Among them are some brilliant ones perfect for outdoor activities and the Timex Camper Watch is one of them. This timeless watch is comfortable, practical and very affordable.
With the classic and simple military-inspired design, Timex Camper Watch didn’t change much for the last hundred years. What they did though is make it lighter (2.40 ounces). The watch features 34 mm resin case with acrylic dial window, an analogue display, and quartz movement.
Another thing that’s different when compared to the original 1918s watch is the strap. Timex added a washable nylon slip-thru strap that has a buckle closure. An extremely important thing for outdoor watches is how they react to elements. This one is water resistant up to 99 ft. What it means is that it can handle occasional splashes and immersion in water, but is not suitable for swimming.
When exposed to moisture, Timex Camper Watch won’t fog up. And if it’s dark, INDIGLO night-light and easy-to-read luminescent hands will help you see better. The band is very durable and around 9 inches long. After many years of use, you can always get a new replacement band and the watch will look like new. It comes in black and green.
