ANNOUNCING Q TIMEX
A REISSUE OF A 1979 RETRO CLASSIC RETURNS WITH ALL OF THE ORIGINAL DETAILS
Today, Timex, a global leader in watchmaking, 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.
“As we celebrate 165 years of quality craftsmanship and innovative timepieces, it’s exciting to be able to reintroduce a watch that transports consumers back to a specific point in time, the Quartz movement revolution was a transformative time in the watch industry, particularly for Timex because we provided a new quartz movement technology at an affordable price. Our dedication to affordability and quality craftmanship still holds true today.” – Silvio Leonardi, Senior Vice President at Timex Group.
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.
Q Timex is available for purchase in limited quantities for £159 on Timex.co.uk and select stores globally.
