Introducing Q Timex.
Timex resurrects one of their first quartz watches.
Well every watch brand seems to be releasing historical pieces from their back catalogues and Timex is no exception. I think at the price point of $179 I think it will sell very well.
My very first watch as a child watch was a Timex hand winder, I still remember it fondly to this day. I am fairly sure that I am not the only one who's first watch was a Timex.
No down to the particulars and a few pictures.
Model: Q Timex
Reference Number: TW2T80700
Case Material: Stainless Steel
Dial Color: Navy Blue
Lume: Index, HH / MH
Water Resistance: 50M
Strap/Bracelet: Stainless bracelet reverse engineered from the original design.
I really like the look of this piece as I am a sucker for a pepsi bezel, they have even included the battery hatch. In my opinion the battery hatch is a superb idea making it very easy to replace the battery yourself, why this Idea has long gone is beyond me.
Now the link and pictures I hope you enjoy the article as much as I did, a lovely bit of nostalgia.

I am signed up for Timex marketing emails and saw this the other day. I like it, too! I've said it once, and I'll say it again, I like what Timex has been doing!

I like it too, in fact I had it in the cart with 4.5% back ebates (Rukuten)...then I thought maybe the price will go down in the next few months or a big sale. I may still buy it.

Oh neat is this just the best?! Or what Gary?!!
First off the watch honestly takes on the most high end watches you
can think of design wise. Just the pepsi bezel alone is outstanding, and
done so nicely. ..But then the dial itself, along with case is something to
behold ! I mean it really is a style you just don't see unless you are
looking at, or hunting for a vintage watch. Beautiful !
Oh, and even the bracelet is a home run with it's super sleek, and
almost mesh-like quality. ..Timex really did an amazing job here,
and wow, a battery hatch? ..Genius !
Fantastic watch, and news Gary ! ..Thank you very very much !!!
