disclosure samplesTimex Expedition® Vibe Shock

Father’s Day is inching closer. Have you decided what to give the dads in your life? One gift that always hits the mark is a nice watch. If your guys are anything like my husband, they like to have more than one watch for different occasions – dress up, dress down, sports, rugged wear – you name it.

When it comes to those rugged occasions like camping and hiking, the Expedition® Vibe Shock from Timex is a great choice. It’s also a great choice if your guy just wants to LOOK like he is ready to go out in the wilderness. It’s on the larger size, chunky, and rugged – with a subtle camo design on the edges.

Timex Expedition Vibe Shock

It also has lots of great outdoor features. There are three custom vibration alarms in this shock-resistant resin case, giving you silent alerts when you’re outdoors. Plus, hardened mineral glass and 200-meter water resistance make this one of Timex’s most durable watches yet. Here are a few more of its cool features:

  • Designed For Outdoor Torture Tests
  • Shock Resistant To I.S.O. Standards
  • Stopwatch, Countdown Timer & Vibration Alarm
  • 200 Meter Water Resistance
  • INDIGLO® Night-Light

Timex Expedition® Vibe Shock Watch Band

My hubby is usually more of a “dress watch” kind of guy, but he is happy to have this one for outdoor activities and other times he wants something on the heavy-duty side. It’s a great size, with helpful features and has a very comfortable band.

    My dad works at outdoor events year round and is constantly having to replace the watches he buys since they never can seem to measure up to the hype of being rugged or tough. The content in this article leads me to believe that it will stand up to its claims of tough testing for durability and performance. The other features are great, sure, but for my dad, who works so hard all of the time, he needs a watch that can keep up with him. I would love to win this and give it to him as a gift, not for any special occasion, just because he’s my dad and deserves it.
