Q Timex

Jump on This Affordable Restocked Retro Watch Before It Sells Out


September 22, 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 was originally available for purchase in limited quantities for $179 on Timex.com but quickly sold out. The word is that it’s getting restocked this morning on Timex.com, so keep a look out for it if you missed out the first time around.

Gear Patrol also recommends:
Orient Mako II ($138)
Timex X Todd Snyder Mid-Century ($158)
Seiko 5 SRP605K2 ($189)
