I did a lot of research prior to ordering this Timex watch, and surprisingly or not it is incredibly difficult to find a watch with a metal band AND digital display (and additional benefits such as stopwatch, alarm, etc...) Thankfully, this was a good investment!

-Sleek design: the digital display can be turned off, and the metal band is aesthetically pleasing as well as easy to clean.
-Solid build: the watch is a nice and heavy (but not too heavy!) weight, and I haven't experienced any problems with any parts breaking.
-Unisex: the watch is advertised as a men's watch but it is also appropriate for women who like their watches nice and legible. As a smaller woman, I was able to adjust the number of links on the band to have it fit my wrist perfectly. The watch face is large on my wrist, but not comedically so; I have gotten compliments on it by my friends.
-Talking piece: Yes, it is the watch featured in the movie Stranger than Fiction, though without magical qualities. The analog and digital components also do not sync, and the light feature was improved for the film.

-The design is not perfect: flaws include the fact that one must hold down the indiglo (light) button to set the alarm, meaning that the battery will always be drained a little extra each time you set it.
-Quiet alarm: it's too soft, so don't expect it to use it as a wake up alarm or anything like that!
-Syncing: the analog and digital parts are not synced, and you have to set them separately. This also means that over time, the analog and the digital components will tell you slightly different times... the analog one, I believe, starts lagging about a minute after 3-4 months. It then has to be manually adjusted.

HASH(0xa2493798) out of 5 stars Sleek and stylish watch July 17 2005
By J. Balderas - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I have had several Timex watched over the past few years, and by far this is the best looking one I've seen in the market, however it's missing some standard functionality in most Timex watches.

* You can use this as a dress watch, it's very stylish.
* The quality of the band seems very good, at least it seems like this is really stainless.
* Comes with indiglo light, 2 alarms, 2-time mode and the standard ironman features: chronograph, timer, etc.

(I hope Timex reads this feedback)
* I wish it had a 5-minute snooze backup alarm which I had on my prior Timexs.
* I used to have a 25th Anniversary Triathlon and I loved the weekday alarm, instead this watch comes with an alarm that you can set for a specific date, I don't anticipate using this feature ever.
* It doesn't have a night mode, usually if you hold the indiglo light it would switch to a mode which doesn't require you to hold the indiglo button to keep the light on.
* The set button is the same as the Indiglo light button. I found this makes setting the alarm extremely difficult while in the dark.

HASH(0xa40776e4) out of 5 stars The complete detailed no-nonsense review May 21 2007
By Cerealmouse - Published on Amazon.com

Yes this is the watch featured in the movie "Stranger than Fiction", but more on that later....

This is a nice and stylish watch that you can wear pretty much anywhere. The price comes at a very modest ~$60 line, which is a great value and a nice failsafe gift for those in need.

Features -

Backlight, Lap timer, chronograph and alarm along with the regular watch mode which displays time, date, and day of the week.

Weaknesses -

backlight seems to favor power saving with a very unimpressive but functional light. You can read the time, but don't expect anything flashy.

Alarm is utterly USELESS. Only a faint repetitive beeping noise that goes on for about 15 beats. Completely inaudible on a crowded street and useless for waking you up.

Watch is HEAVY. For those that like a sturdy feel, this is good, but don't expect to forget you're wearing this watch. On the bright side, my left arm needs a little more workout than my right.

Disappointments related to the movie -

The watch looks the same from the outside, but feature-wise is very different and I'm not talking about it's life saving capabilities (though it may be sturdy enough to stop a bullet)

If you notice in the movie, the backlight is BLUE and the watch shines the backlight while beeping to awake Crick. This feature doesn't exist.

Biggest dissappointment for me was that the analog and digital watch AREN'T CONNECTED like in the movie. That cool scene where Howard was fixing his time with just the analog dial - not happening. You have to set each one manually, and for some reason they don't like to stay exactly in sync.

Bottom line-

Judging by price and style alone, you should be adding this watch to your cart now! Just don't expect any revolutionary features and you'll be a happy camper. Personally, I would pay a bit more just to get a more exact representation of the watch in the movie, but overall I'm happy with the quality of the watch I have.

HASH(0xa2178078) out of 5 stars This watch could be SO much better June 26 2007
By Liquid Todd - Published on Amazon.com
I absolutely loved the film Stranger than Fiction and when I discovered the watch was obtainable I had to have one. Everything others have written here about the differences between the movie watch and the real thing are true. And it makes me wonder why Timex isn't taking all the thoughtful comments here and using them to make a special edition of this watch that does the movie version proud?

The most important thing would be synchronized digital and analog systems. Right now the differences between the two are stark. After painstakingly synching them you can see as - right before your eyes - they quickly go out of sync. And I'm not talking about hours or days. You can see it happening in just one minute. Also the Indiglo is probably the worst I've ever seen. It's dim and will only stay on for TWO SECONDS.

And, I have to ask, why did Timex design the hands of the watch so they block the digital readout? It's not hard to come up with a better design. Also the picture of the watch is not what it looks like. The watch face is grey, not white. I'm uploading a "customer image" so you can all see what it really looks like.

All in all it's a handsome analog watch with a overly complicated and slightly annoying digital system. Mostly, though, this watch has a ocean of wasted potential. And, really, is there anything more irritating than wasted potential?

HASH(0xa7a7aa8c) out of 5 stars Nice Dual Purpose Watch Dec 29 2005
By DirtRaven - Published on Amazon.com
I've owned 4 previous Timex Ironman watches. They really are tough watches. My first one, I wore out the face of it so bad that i couldn't read the time anymore. My second one ended up at the bottom of a bay, but since that one was good for 200m, I sure it's still working at the bottom. My third one pretty much gotten beaten up like my first one which looks like a pitbull used it as a chew toy.

This watch has a nice dual purpose usage where it's for the active people that uses lap and countdown timer. Only down point I found with this watch is that the countdown timer is a bit trickier to use since it uses what they call 'Loop', Loop 1 is Count Up, Loop 2 is Count Down, Loop 3 is countdown repeat. I preferred their other countdown version where it just says CR, CU, CD, a bit more intuative than remembering what Loop 1,2,3 does.

The watch is a bit heavier than I though it would be, but it does feel solid and the Stainless steel band has a nice lock to it, though I already have scratches on it.

The Indiglo DOES have a night feature, you just have to hold the Indiglo button til it says Hold to activate it.

Another nice feature is that you can turn off the digital face and just have the Analog time for the classy look, though the only way I found that I can do this was to use the "recall' function, but it leaves you 4 dashes in the lower background.

My only real problem with this Timex is the Alarm/Chime is very low compare to my previous Ironman watches, so it's a problem when your using say the countdown repeat in the gym or in a city setting.

I'll see how long this one will last me, yes I'm very rough on my watches, you should see the abuse my wrist and hands get and I'm not even in construction.

HASH(0xa4af19b4) out of 5 stars Solid and functional March 19 2006
By Oakes Studio - Published on Amazon.com

You won't find a better combination of style, functionality and ease of use in a timepiece. I really don't like walking around in a plastic Casio-style watch so this traditional looking watch from Timex caught my eye. There are other semi-dress style watches that have stopwatch functionality, but none that you can actually see without a magnifying glass. I constantly forgot to bring my stopwatch to my daughter's track meets and now I always have one with me. Plus, I can turn off the digital readout and it looks great when I am wearing it for work. It seems (and feels) well made and well worth the money.
