Timex is known globally for producing cheap, but amazingly feature-rich watches for a wide variety of different activities. While best known for the Timex Ironman Triathlon watch, their flagship product released in the early 1980s, that was targeted at athletes, Timex also produces watches for general outdoor sports and fashion watches. Whether you are out for a run, out camping or out on the town, the Timex watch company has you covered with their vast range of affordable time pieces. Many of the Timex innovations first tested on their Ironman watches are present in other ranges and the classic Timex quality is recognizable in all types of Timex watches.
The Timex outdoor watches are under the “Expedition” label. These watches are very robust and designed to hold up to a few knocks and bumps. Within this range are dive style watches, digital dashboard style watches, e-instruments, classic digital and classic analog watches to suit all styles, needs and outdoor situations. One of the more popular types of Timex watches amongst outdoor types seeking a simple and effective watch that will not fail under pressure are the Timex Military watches. These watches are reminiscent of World War II-era aviation equipment. With a timeless look blended with modern features, they provide modern convenience with old fashion reliability.
Within the Military range, there are two general types of watches, Military Chrono and Military Classic. Military Chrono are a more sophisticated watch, featuring three side buttons and three sub-dials that supports a stop-watch feature down to 1/20th of a second. The Chrono Military watches support Indiglo with Night light feature and a stylish date feature within a stainless steel case.

This watch also features the Indiglo Night light, stainless steel case and display 12 and 24 hour time on inner layers of the dial as well as a layer for seconds. The Timex Military Classic watch is the ideal reliable watch to wear around the house, on camping trips and other outdoor ventures.
