    Setting day of the week is tedious. The little side knob (“crown”) is pulled out one stop for date and two stops to set time. To set day of week pull out the two stops to set time then turn the knob through 24 hours for each day. I had Mon when I got it and it was Fri I needed so I spent five minutes turning and turning, each time passing midnight moved the day on once. Hopefully now it is correct, never again. Found the strap fitted well, on an average male wrist, so didn’t need to adjust and springiness was just right for comfortable wear yet easy on and off. The bracelet does act as a painful depilatory of course (once hairless is OK). There are no bespoke instruction for T20031, The on-line manual saves time by having confusing instructions for many different watches at once. What bad salesmanship!

    First off let me get a few things clear from my experience with this watch vs the reviews.

    1. this watch fits perfectly nice on my wrist, i’m not a kid by any means i’m a 6 foot 3 230lb man who has a pretty thick wrist. It feels perfectly comfortable on my wrist, it feels like its barely there but keeps its place on my wrist and it’s not even close to being fully stretched out but its also not loose.
    2. The instructions, you mean what instructions? the one it comes with is just it saying its water resistant in like 7 different languages, to get the ACTUAL instructions in how to set this you have to go online. That being said I did NOT have as much trouble as some people in the reviews did, I set the time day and date within under a minute of setting it up. I however have not set the alarm yet as i’m debating whether I even need to.
    3. The quality, it feels like a very solid product I dont feel like its a cheap dimestore watch it feels like one of those deals you find in a store where you get the feeling you’re getting your moneys worth for what you’re paying for, this is a solid watch.
    4. Check your battery, keep an eye on how good the timekeeping is, I suspect alot of people have gotten faulty batteries which does happen in such a mass produced watch but its really no fault on the product itself.
    5. Awesome for winter, I keep very bulky watches (like my casio rangeman which is a 175 dollar watch) but in winter time, especially going into the city you dont want a bulky watch that makes having sweaters and gloves and getting things out of your pocket difficult, this easily slips under my gloves, sweater and doesn’t obstruct me getting things from my pocket, its very streamlined. I love that.

    Overall I think this is a great watch. It reminds me alot of what my Grandfather wore and I think that is what it was aiming for, your grandpa’s old expandable band timekeeper, It wasn’t the most beautiful thing on the planet but it got the job done and kept on ticking.

    small update: its accurately keeping time, on the dot and its been a few days now.

    2nd update: its been a month now still as accurate as the day I set it.

    3rd update: its now may 10th and its still keeping time and hasn’t missed a beat, still on the same minute as every other accurate watch. It’s been good to me in the rain, washing my hands, etc. I did get the silver tone and if you do some hard labor you’ll get scratches here and there but this is a working man’s watch that wants to look nice and it’s doing its job at that.

    4th update: through rain snow and hot and cold weather still haven’t missed a beat. I haven’t even set the timer to fix it other then DST

    final update: this thing is still ticking, I haven’t had to re-adjust it and it’s keeping time accurately, it’s now august 2018.

    Bought this watch for my husband who has rheumatoid arthritis in his hands and wrists and suffers with clumsy fingers and swollen wrists. He finds it excellent and can just pull the watch on with no fiddly strap to buckle. He likes the face of the watch which is exceptionally clear and easy to read. The watch lights up in the dark, so you can see the time, if you wake up in the night. He says it is good because if you need to wash your hands with it on, you can just push it up your arm a bit, then you don’t get it wet. The battery lasts ten years and the watch is smart and stylish, as well as being wonderfully practical.

    The watch itself keeps good time but despite endless experimentation I cannot find a way to set the date display. Furthermore the expanding metal bracelet appears to have been designed to fit the wrist of an extremely thin person. I don’t think my wrists are particularly large but after a few days of having them gouged by the bracelet I threw in the towel and replaced it with a leather strap. Perhaps Messrs. Timex should consider this option before placing skin embossing equipment on the market. And instructions on how to set the date would not go amiss either.

    Looks smart and the stainless steel bracelet is expensive looking. Easy to read numbers and day/date. Fits well. Very easy to see at night once you press the knob on the side. It’s not a glow-in-the-dark but in fact you switch on a light when you press the knob, which illuminates the dial. Being very short-sighted, at night I have to approach the watch slowly to allow my eyes to adjust! Excellent purchase. I came to Timex after two Lorus watches failed between 12-18 months and the customer service was very poor. Don’t think I’ll regret my decision!

    I’ve worn most of the big Swiss brands costing thousands of dollars, but I always end up going back to my Easy Reader. Now, I’m not saying it has a unique in house mechanical movement, hand finished case, or details that need to be appreciated under a loupe, but for what a watch is supposed to do it’s perfect. No matter how much money I’ve spent on watches I’ve never been able to find the right combination of comfort, sturdiness, accuracy, and legibility that the Easy Reader has.

    Most watches these days are way too big, too heavy, too thick, or otherwise uncomfortable. 35mm is the perfect size for me and I hope Timex doesn’t kill it in favor of going crazy big like everyone else. Also, I don’t know why there are so few watches with Arabic numerals. I need to be able to quickly and accurately tell the time under stressful conditions, and I appreciate how Timex uses Arabic numerals and an uncluttered dial.

    Speaking to its sturdiness, I’m wearing my 7 year old Easy Reader right now and it’s been completely battered over the years. I wear it when commercial fishing and there isn’t a place on the watch that isn’t scratched or dented. I’ve never had a problem with water resistance either, but truth be told I did open the case back and rubbed a bunch of silicon around the gasket before sealing it back up, so that no doubt helped.

    It’s also the most comfortable watch I wear. After removing one link from the expansion bracelet it fits like it was designed for me. I also view the expansion bracelet as a safety feature for me. Should the bracelet get hung up on moving machinery it will just slip off instead of pulling my hand along with it. It’s happened and the Timex was slingshot off of my wrist and into a steel bulkhead. I put it back on and it worked like nothing had happened. The relative thinness of the case allows it to slip easily under sleeves where other watches would get hung up on.

    This watch does have some finicky aspects, but considering the ridiculously low price, they’re not even worth mentioning.

    Bottom line: This is the best watch for what watches are supposed to do, no gimmicks.

    the watch is a simple and effective timepiece. the bracelet strap is durable and attractive.
    the watch face is simple/old school design which i like.
    i would have preferred it without the day/date dial as this is very small and detracts from it being an easy read watch.
    the light is great if you wear the watch in bed, as i do. i can wake up and check the time without moving my head or turning over to read a clock or phone.
    i have bought several of these over the years and they have all given good service, on the down side they are now becoming expensive, the first two i bought years ago from asda supermarket cost £20.00 each. now they are £50.00 each which is a massive increase in price. overall, still a good useful watch, no one is going to envy you wearing it but it is so far as telling the time and having a light with a decent expandable strap much more use than the ubiquitous rolex. depends how big your ego is i suppose.
