Over the previous few years, the Q assortment from Timex has been a really, very nice shock. The watches handle to offer you that basic 70s look, whereas bringing ahead standard seems that resonate with us at present. Their newest launch brings my very favourite complication to the fore – the Q Timex GMT.
I imply, actually, what’s there to not like concerning the Q Timex GMT? You’ve received a comparatively slim 38mm case paired to an built-in bracelet (or a rubber strap, should you choose), with a basic pips-and-bars set of indices, in addition to the inverted triangle up at 12 o’clock. Legibility is paramount right here, with the black dial sharply contrasting the white of the indices and handset. Curiously, that additionally contains the GMT hand. We’re extra accustomed to that being some kind of a contrasting coloration, however right here it follows the primary handset. Just one other method of Timex kind of carving their very own method?
While the motion within the Q Timex GMT continues to be quartz (that’s the entire thing of the Q lineup), this one is labelled as Swiss-made. No phrase as to who made it (our guess is that it’s a Ronda 515.24h), however nonetheless, that Swiss label carries some assurance of reliability and accuracy. Then once more, that’s the very good factor a couple of quartz motion. Paired right here with a GMT hand, you’ll at all times have the second time you could observe available. Or third time zone, if you wish to get a bit spicy and offset issues with the rotating bezel.
If you wish to decide up your individual Q Timex GMT, it’ll run you $199 on the strap or $219 on the bracelet. In phrases of finishes, there’s a PVD-look one, or a metal one with the basic Pepsi bezel, or the extra delicate (and the one which will get my nod) Batman bezel.
