The Timex T49961 Expedition Scout 40 is a quartz offering in the familiar combination of a 40mm-wide case combined with an easy-to-find and replace 20mm strap. This medium-sized version (there’s a larger 43mm variant) brings a healthy amount of wrist presence, without being too bulky, casual, or sporty-looking to bring to a work or business setting. The brass case comes in different finishes, and is rated water resistant to 50m, letting you take it for quick jaunts in the shower or pool. Mineral crystal glass covers the dial, which features different color and markings variations of the traditional 24-hour field watch aesthetic.
A small date window blends easily into the details of the simple watch face. This highly legible dial combines with luminous watch hands and the brand’s signature Indiglo illumination to make it easy to tell the time, no matter the lighting conditions. A reliable and practical quartz watch never goes out of style, and the Scout 40, with its many combinations of dial styles, case finishes, and strap options, lets you find one that would complement your EDC and fit in with your everyday environment.
