Editor’s Note: Watches & Wonders (formerly SIHH) and Baselworld 2020 are canceled but that hasn’t stopped watch brands large and small from debuting their new wares. To stay on top of this year’s best new watch releases, visit our tag page.
Timex’s quartz-powered Navi XL has long been a mainstay in the brand’s catalog of fun, affordable watches. Now, for the first time, the Navi line is getting a mechanical upgrade in the form of a 21-jewel automatic movement. Available with a green dial and black bezel; a black dial with a red bezel; or, coolest of all, an all-black version with black case, dial and bezel, the new Navi features a 41mm stainless steel case, date window, mineral glass crystal, rotating dive bezel, 100m of water resistance and a leather strap, all for just $269. So if you’re looking to gift someone his or her first automatic watch without breaking the bank, the updated Navi XL makes an excellent choice.
