Q Timex 1979 Reissue

Post by stonehead887 » Fri May 17, 2019 5:10 am

Have you guys seen this one? Timex reissue faithful recreation of the 1979 original.
38mm quartz and looks very cool. In the UK £159 and if you sign up can get 15% discount. I am in for one of these as soon as they are available ImageImageImage

Not sure but it looks like it could be a slide lock clasp.

Is it a GMT or is the 24hr bezel just for show?

bezel rotates both directions but does not ratchet, not sure if that means it's also not hour indexed?

found this pic on the timex site, which seems to show one side of the clasp "slides" to adjust length, maybe??

Oh yes, that def slides to adjust. Reminds me of all the digital watches I got through in the 80s. I am looking forward to getting one

Same sliding clasp as the cheap eBay mesh bracelets. Nothing innovative but it works

Many will register, few will last :htfu:

Just realized it's a 12 hour bezel. No coffee this morning... ImageImageImage

It's clearly inspired by a well-known watch, but that's as it was from when it was first released. Part of Timex's thing was bringing popular, expensive watch designs to the masses, so I appreciate the history.

I might be a buyer at $100 or less, but not at almost $200. Maybe it will be cheaper on Amazon.

According to the Timex.com website, the initial batch is sold out.

Looks good. I like it.

Looks super cool but $200 for a watch on the same bracelet that you find on a $10 Casio seems steep.

Can't get enough of these Jeremy ! :excited:

They just have such a neat vintage feel with them from the case design to
the bracelet, and look really well done. ..There is even a battery hatch ! :)
Looks like Timex really hit it out of the park with these. So cool !

Thank you sir !!!
