I wash alot of dishes at work by hand and I needed a simple watch that I could wear and not worry about ruining it. I can't tell you how many times I had to take my watch on and off because I didn't want to get it wet. So when I was at Target, I decided to look around for an inexpensive watch.
I wandered over to the watch section and started looking. I was amazed that even the basic watches were over $40! I didn't need a stopwatch or anything else added to the watch. Just show me a basic watch that I can wear and not worry about water damage.
I found this Armitron watch sitting all by itself on the shelf. It was a slim band, which I liked, and it was under $15.00! Okay, now it had my attention. Upon further investigation, I found that it also had a day/date button and a glow feature. By that I mean when you push the button the dial glows so you can read it. I'm sure there is a more technical name for it but I don't remember...ergo it glows! It says that it is water resistant to 165 feet! Well I think this will be fine. I don't see myself washing dishes in water depths as deep as that so I will be okay!
The strap is black leather and it buckles on the back (see pictures). It's easy to take on and off and it will adjust to fit many wrist sizes. I think this one is perfect for me at work. Think of all the time I will save not taking my watch on and off when I wash dishes!
Target is the store and Armitron is the watch! If you are looking for an inexpensive watch ~ this is the one!
