Quality and Material of Strap
The cowhide leather has been used in this watch. Lets find out whether it’s real leather or fake leather.
Is cowhide considered leather? So its answer is yes it is considered to be leather but it is not as effective as top grain leather. But its durability is between 2-4 years.
Cowhide is heavier than sheepskin leather, taken from the cow and processed to the extent that it turns into the leather to manufacture wearable items.
Here is the article on Quora you can read: How can you spot the difference between fake and real leather?
As we tested, we found that a very good quality of Cowhide Leather has been used in the straps. Which is durable, waterproof, and stainproof and looks classy and luxurious.

Size, Fits, and Adjustments of Strap
The size of the strap is 20mm adjustable size which can fit up to 5.9 inches – 8 inches wrist circumference. The length is men’s standard.
The maximum circumference is 8-1/4. You would have to make a new hole at the tip of the leather band for a bigger wrist size. You might get 8-3/4 inches by doing that.
On the small and thin wrist, the watch fits perfectly fine and looks very cool.
Strap Feel and Comfort on the Wrist
Friends, the leather quality of this watch is very good. It gives a very soft and comfortable feel on the wrist.
Since cow high leather has been used in it, it does not cause any damage to the skin even in extreme weather conditions.
It is quite a lightweight watch, it weighs 1.6 ounces. Which does not feel heavy on the wrist. Sometimes you can’t even feel it.
Replacement of The Strap
You can also swap the strap in this watch. It has retractable pins so you can easily install a new band if you are fairly handy. Otherwise, you could just have a jeweler do it for a few $.
You can replace it with any kind of strap whether it is slip thru strap or a metal band. Which is really good about this watch.
Timex easy Reader 40th Anniversary Indiglo
Friends, we are most troubled when we have to look at the time in the dark, but the Indiglo feature that Timex has given in its watches completely eliminates your problem.
The best feature of this watch is its Indiglo feature which is very impressive. Which helps you to see time in the dark or in low light conditions.
In this watch, when you use the Indiglo function, you see a shadow of the “number 40” in the background of the dial which represents the 40th anniversary of the Timex Easy Reader Series. This is a very unique feature.
People who have weak eyesight may find its 40th-anniversary feature a little annoying because sometimes you may feel difficutly in reading the time while this 40 shadow shines in the background.
To use the Indiglo you just need to push the stem and the whole dial lights up. Once you release the button it automatically gets off.
But according to the price of this watch, we will give this watch’s Indiglo feature 5 out of 5 because it works very well compared to the rest of the watches.
