Timex Linear Chronograph

Today I want to tell you about the Timex Intelligent Quartz Linear Chronograph – Item T2P276ZA.  Not only does it look cool – it is an interesting watch because of how the chronograph functions.  What’s different about this watch is the linear scale used to track the elapsed minutes on the chronograph function and the angled sweep hand to track hours that have elapsed.  See the enlarged pictures below – and click any of them to go to the Timex website.

The chronograph second hand is the large orange hand shown in the picture below (there’s an independent second hand for time keeping in yellow) and you’ll also note the unusual placement of the date window – between 1 and 2 o’clock on the dial.


Have I gotten you as interested as I am about this watch yet?  This is unlike anything I’ve seen before – and it all looks really good together.  I’ve seen watches that try to cram a whole bunch of dials and functions on the face – and they just end up looking messy.  This one looks complex – but extremely well thought out – and very unique.  I like the black color of the case and dial – with the red-orange ring around the face – and the brown leather band just looks correct for this watch.

If you’re still wondering about the function of the Linear Chronograph – don’t worry I didn’t get it at first either – check out this video which explains it:


So after seeing all about this watch are you ready to get one for yourself?  I know that I am.  If you want to buy one – and you haven’t clicked on one of the pictures yet – you can click here.  I don’t think you’ll be disappointed with this one – and it will be different than any other watch you may have.

  2. This Timex watch is really unique. Everything on it is just awesome. I have never seen the date placement on a watch between the the 1 and 2 on the dial. I will be letting my brother know about this watch. Thank you so much for your thorough post on the Timex Intelligent Linear Chronograph watch.

    • Those are my thoughts exactly – this is an awesome watch. I hope your brother likes it also. Make sure you check back for more reviews in the future.

      Thanks for checking out my site.


  3. Your right about how good this watch looks. By changing up the display face to give you all the information you require for the chronograph functions it is easier to get your readings right from the watch face.
    Its obvious they put a lot of thought into the functionality and look of the watch. The video definitely makes it easier to see how the watch functions as well.

  4. Hey Jeff,
    That’s a nice watch :)

    Timex really does have a lot of cool watches in their collections that are priced quite reasonably. I really loved their expedition series. I would really love it if you good compile a list of top 10 cool watches under $150 just so that i could have more options to choose from :)

    All in all i really love watches and this post and your website in general has a lot of great information about them.

    • Thanks for checking out my site. I will look into putting together a 10 cool watches list for a future post – thanks for the input and the comments.


  5. Beautiful watch indeed, Jeff.

    I am not really been into watches in the first place, I mean you kind of have a phone to check your time but when I grew up I guess I kind of realize it’s more of an accessory to show your style and class.

    Which I guess could be a thing in a working environment.

    I like this Timex watch, and would really like to have one myself.


    • I think at this point people buy a watch that they like for the style and look of it – not as much to tell the time. But – for men – it’s usually the one piece of jewelry that they wear -so it’s a chance to show your personality. Thanks for checking out my site – and come back for more reviews.


  6. Really pleased to find your site – so easy to navigate, thank you!! I find it so hard finding a decent watch. Looking for a present for my husband. This one looks awesome thank you for the review – the watch looks seriously good. My husband has just started a new job, so I wanted to treat him.

    • Thanks for the comments – I’m glad you like the site and found a watch that you like. Check back in the future for more reviews.

      Thanks- Jeff

  7. Wow! that is a cool watch. It got my intentions quickly.I like the design of it and also the colorway of it. I’m a little bit fan of watches. I like Timex not because of the name but because of the quality of their watches. But I have some questions. Is it good for the money? Is the quality of this watch good? Is this watch water resistant?

    • Timex watches are good quality watches at reasonable prices – so I would give this one a try. This watch is water resistant to 100 meters.
