It’s Two-for-Tuesday! Todays Wrist-Check features 2 watches. My Timex Ameritus Sport Olive Green (T2P035KW) and the Timex Sport Silver (T2P030)
Two years ago I was looking for a field watch stunt double - that being watches that kinda have the look and feel of field watches but are perhaps….not. I settled on a pair of Timex Ameritus Sport models - mainly because they were inexpensive and I had just the right amount of money leftover on an Amazon gift card to cover the price of both.
The light green dial / olive green bezel version shipped with a matching olive green nato strap which was perfect. The silver dial / silver bezel version originally shipped with a white silicon strap but was quickly replaced with a beige & black nato strap.
The Timex Ameritus Sport models actually look pretty good with color matched coin-edge bezel’s featuring GMT 24hrs markers, lume on the both dial hour markers and hands, and understated but present crown-guards. Also the hour markers and numbers are reversed between these two watches - 12, 3, 6, 9 vs. 1,2,4,5,7,8,10,11.
My only complaint is the ever present loud ticking of the Timex movement, I can hear it from across the room. So like my pair of Seiko SNK series Automatics these Timex Ameritus Sport’s make great weekend around-the-house or wash the car in the driveway watches, I’m glad I got’em!
