This Timex Sportster watch is different from others carrying the model name in that its a large men’s watch and not a mid or small sized ladies watch.

The dial is beautiful and typical of watches from this age. There is a deep sunburst outer ring adorned with both Arabic and pointed markers. The center is dark and stamped with circular grooves. This area contains a seconds track and the brand name Timex and WATERPROOF.
