1. Cheap
2. Easy to read digital format
3. World time zones (UTC most importantly)
4. Extended backlight option
5. Date, Year, Month
6. Alarm
7. Stop Watch w/ split
8. Timer
9. Accurate

Tip: Take that cheap metal bracelet off and switch it with NATO strap.
I have this exact one. Came with a plastic bracelet which has since broken and I need to replace.

Back in the 70's I bought one of the first TI Digitals, with the red LED's you had to push the button to see the time. I thought I was all that and a bag of chips (as DW would say).

DW got me this about 10-15 years ago, maybe longer.

It's worked well for me, looks good and very functional. With the addition of a compass on the strap everything I need.

I did see an interesting article I'd like to share from ART of Manliness.

I was given a Timex windup when I joined the cub scouts in 1962. The band is long gone but the watch still works like the day it was given to me.
