I believe that is what I have- a very nice watch for the price. It was part of an experiment with a low end Tissot and a high end Timex, roughly the same price and bought at the same time. I like them both, but I have to get the Timex repaired in the near future. Admittedly, it was a chronograph, so a lot more complicated then the very simple Tissot, but still it was the one that developed an issue. Just a data point.
I did replace the strap first thing, on both watches.
BTW, Needsshoehelp was selling an Hadley Roma alligator strap for a very nice price
. I've had my eye on it, but if someone buys it the temptation will disappear.
