Q Timex

This Affordable Watch From Timex Is Oozing With ’70s Retro Cool


May 16, 2019 Watches By

In a continuing push to modernize classic models from its catalog, Timex has introduced the Q Timex, a model originally produced in the 1970s that fully embraced the advent of quartz technology.

The Q Timex is a striking, stainless steel-cased watch with quartz-powered day-date movement, blue dial with oversized, vintage-colored lume plots, a dual-color 12-hour bezel, and a period-correct woven stainless steel bracelet. It also features a functional battery hatch and a domed acrylic crystal.

A great-looking throwback to the very beginning of the Quartz era, the Q Timex is available for purchase in limited quantities for $179 on Timex.com and select stores globally beginning May 2019.
