    Feel like I've cheated.....

    lol,
    I was surfing around on the bay and found a Nike (Timex) Triax with the logo of my beloved University of Oklahoma Sooners. I'm so weak, I couldn't pass it up. Kickoff is this Saturday.
    Actually I'm quite pleased with it. I'm sure it's not as tough as my G's, but that's OK, I'm not going to do any jackhammering with it :) BBQ'ing, beer drinking and lots of cheering for sure!
    It's very comfortable, no complaints there. 100m H20 resistant. There are many more holes in the strap than my G's (see my post on "loose or tight")and the loop that holds the strap down has a tooth on it that digs into the strap to keep in place so it doesn't come off of the strap. (Casio are you listening?)

    Negatives (so far) are:

    1. No lume so you can't read it in the dark. (big negative)

    2. There is only one button to set all three features-date, day and time. I spent about 10 minutes rolling it forward to the 29th from the 1st. (It doesn't roll the date backward.)

    Other than that I can't complain. It has a 4 screw on the back and a mineral crystal.

    It's not going to take over my collection except for Fridays and game days. Can't beat it for $20 plus $9 shipping

    Heck, my wife gave it a big thumbs up and usually my acquisitions are met wth a formal "rolling of the eyes"

    (Photos are from the seller, haven't taken my own yet)

    BOOMER!

    I doubt you'd have missed this, but I was wondering with it being made by Timex if it had Indiglo lighting. My son didn't realise his Timex Sport had a light for some time, and found it was activated by pushing in the crown.
