TX watches are designed and constructed in Europe, the standard for and origin of quality watches. The TX brand is a member of the Timex watch family. They are undeniably good looking and come in a number of styles that range from very sporty orange rubber bands to sophisticated black leather. A particularly good-looking watch is the 730 series ($450-600). It evokes élan with a subtle black on black checkerboard pattern which admirably balances the delicate sport and dress look. In all honesty, these watches look like something out of a James Bond film, certainly the best and highest association for any man or his watch. Affordable and distinctive, if you can’t afford an heirloom, these will still make your wrist worth noting.
