Timex Watch Bands
Is it time to replace the watch band on your classic Timex? Continue reading for an overview of Timex Watch bands.
Takes A Licking And Keeps On Ticking
There's really no question about it. Timex watches are among the most respected and well known watches in the world. In fact, you can go just about anywhere in the world and run into someone wearing one of these stylish and rugged watches. It's easy to see why. The watches this company makes are designed to last many years with minimal maintenance. And not only that but they are very affordable too. You certainly don't have to be wealthy to own one of these great time pieces. Timex has produced many classics in its days including such instantly recognizable watches as the Timex Expedition, the Timex Easy Reader, and of course, the infamous Timex Ironman Triathlon. Even though Timex watches are designed to “take a licking and keep on ticking,” as the commercials imply, it's still a good idea to replace the Timex watch bands on these fine watches every five to ten years.

Affordable Watch Maintenance
There are many different reasons why watch bands wear out. And just because a watch band wears out and needs to be replaced, this shouldn't be seen as a negative reflection on the watch itself. Watch band replacement is considered a normal maintenance item for any watch, regardless of how expensive the watch was. You can think of it as buying new tires for your Porsche. Of course there's nothing wrong with the car... tires just wear out and periodically need to be replaced. It's the same thing with watches. Leather watch bands dry out and crack with age. Even stainless steel watch bands can break or become damaged after accidentally being hit. Things happen.
The good news about Timex watch bands is the fact that they are very inexpensive to replace. And not only that but they are very common and easy to find. They are typically available at most large retailers and jewelry stores. You can also purchase them online from many different online vendors. Leather bands, for example, tend to be very inexpensive due to the fact that they are usually nothing more than a strip of leather with a clasp. A good quality leather band can be purchased for around $10.

Many Different Options To Choose From
Timex watch bands made from stainless steel tend to be the most expensive option. It's easy to see why. These bands are very complex to manufacture and are assembled from many different small parts. Even though they are the most expensive option, it doesn't mean that they are outrageously expensive. You can purchase one for as little as $10 and they continue to go up in price from there. It's important to keep in mind, however, that you may have to have a jeweler adjust the size for you. Adjusting these bands can be a bit tricky and it's often easier to let a professional do it for you.
Just as there are many different Timex watches to choose from, there are also many different replacement watch bands to choose from as well. The good news is the fact that replacement parts for these fine watches are both very common and affordable at the same time.
