    Does anyone have experience with this particular model concerning durability or accuracy of the compass ?

    It looks like a well made watch for the money. It can be had inexpensively, but seems discontinued.

    Also, do the screws mean anything in holding the strap ? They could, but if not, I do hate fake elements.

    I think the compass gets panned in Amazon's reviews. *shrug* No firsthand experience here.

    I looked at Timex Expedition watches recently, and those screws gave me pause, too. Without opening the box, I feared that I couldn't get a replacement band -- and I didn't like the stock band. So I chose a different Expedition watch -- but now that you mention it, I bet you could go into a store (I am thinking of J.C. Penny, where I got mine) and ask them to open up the box.

    *shrug* What's the worst that could happen? They say no?
