Understandably, today’s sartorial entry may elicit a faint feeling of perplexity and bewilderment, as the audience may have grown accustomed to the occasional focus on a myriad of gentlemen’s furnishings that bear a hefty price-tag. And as that may warrant a slight hint of truth, nonetheless, I am not a devoted slave to popular brands or expensive sticker prices. I am more drawn to what is visually satisfying, competent and proficient in performance, and soundly functional in utility. Sure, I have a few pricey items in my wardrobe, but I also have just as many that reflect frugality.
Now, one of those excursions into frugality has brought me to my latest purchase – the Timex Easy Reader. Clocking in, pardon the pun, at an insanely low price of $65.00, this was a purchase that I could not ignore. Coupled with the fact that I also received 20 percent off the retail price; this was really a no-brainer. I was compelled to act.
Simplistically elegant in its design, this basic timepiece is the perfect companion for both business and business-casual attire. I opted for both the black and brown selections for versatility. The face appears to be a tad big, but I’m a big guy myself, so I don’t see any problems that may arise. Now, I know some gentleman are devout followers of more expensive timepieces. However, oddly enough, I have never been big on watches myself. So, this basic beauty, complete with large numerals and indiglo lighting for my compromised vision, is just right for me. Can’t wait for shipment!
Where can i purchase this? and how did you get 20% off?
I ordered both Nordstrom and can be found at http://shop.nordstrom.com/s/timex-easy-reader-leather-strap-watch/3121279?origin=PredictiveSearch&contextualcategoryid=0&fashionColor=&resultback=0
As for the 20 percent off, I was able to use an employee discount of a friend. Sometimes it helps to know folk. 🙂
Thank you! Love the blog. I often have issues with business casual attire and would love to see an article on that topic.
I will always love this time piece brand. When my pops visited the States for the first time in 89, the gift he came back with for me was a Timex watch with a black leather strap and just a 12 and 6 on the dial. When it comes to affordability I can’t complain because they start in the R700 range. What a way to send me on a nostalgic trip.
Got my package last week, I’m definitely satisfied!
