Timex has been producing different models of field watches for some years now, but for this one they really nailed it. This is not just a step but a huge jump in the right direction for Timex. The build, sapphire crystal, water resistance, size combined punches this watch above its price point.
I hope Timex continues this line and improve upon this. It doesn't always have to be cheap watches. If Timex can produce another version with a reliable hand-winding movement, but with some longer handset than the current mechanical, I'd buy again for collection. Because this NFP41 Solar will stay on my wrist.
