Timex introduces Q Timex, a diver-inspired reissue of the popular 1970s original. For 165 years, Timex has been dedicated to bringing consistent innovation to the watch category, and has a long, rich history of pulling from its archive to modernize classic styles that evoke nostalgia in consumers.
Originally named “Q Timex” to signify the end of the mechanical movement and Timex’s entrance into quartz, this reissue maintains the original features including the ‘Q’ below the 12 o’clock position, true to-the-era woven stainless-steel bracelet, functional battery hatch, rotating top ring and luminescent infill hour markers and hands.
To modernize the watch for present day wear, Q Timex features a stainless-steel case and bracelet with a domed acrylic crystal and ticking inside is a modern quartz movement. With its diver-inspired look that incorporates blue, red and gold accents, it’s sure to stand out in any watch collection.
The Q Timex reissue will be brought to life through an illustrated story featuring Mr. Q’s topside boat chase that includes an action-packed mission and thrilling escape – speeding through London’s Thames River in 1979.
Q Timex is available for purchase in limited quantities from May 2019, RRP £159.
