Sadly, I've had negative experiences with my Timex watches. I've managed to "drown" two ironman models (while swimming in the ocean, heck they're supposed to be meant for such sport!) and one expedition (while crossing a river during a hike, again, an activity for which the watch was supposedly designed). Since then I've stuck to my Casio edifice and g-shock for outdoor recreation. They've yet to fail me, I've even taken 'em scuba diving.
