Default Mechanical Water Timer

Hey guys, I've been searching high and low for a good quality mechanical water timer. All the ones I find are either pure plastic or one side is brass and the other plastic. Are there any out there that have a solid brass construction on both sides?

I currently own two Orbit Mechanical Water Timers, but on is starting to leak when it's the timer expires. The second one in the yard has not leaked since I installed it.

Anyone have any experience with some other timers? Should I just continue to buy these cheap timers?

Quick update, I found the same mechanical timers on Amazon but with metal construction instead of plastic. Much better quality!
