I've found several reviews that say the friggin crown falls off The Timex Expedition Scout!
As I do not yet have a watch addiction, I just need an everyday, low maintenance watch that I can throw a Maratac Mil Series strap on and a leather strap when I need it for dress.
That Timex fits my needs perfectly. I like the idea of popping of the back and tossing in a new battery. I like the style. I like Indiglo. I really like the military time. I like the price. I obviously do not like the idea of the friggin crown falling off. I also don't like that it is coated brass (the stainless model they have also has a review that says the crown falls off).
I just want a cheap watch with that military/scout style that is easy to maintain. Pop off the back - replace a battery. Those are the watches that I remember from my youth. They lasted forever and took the beating that a young kid could dish out.
Any recommendations? Anyone own that Timex that can tell me differently? Maybe a certain bad-luck production run on those Timex's?
edit: I joined earlier this year to inquire about the Citizen 8180 that I ended up buying. It crapped out just last week and they want $85 to fix it. Not happening. I paid $75 for it.
