If you’re a fan of the Q Timex watches and their distinctive, ‘70s-inspired barrel cases, but want your watch to have a mechanical heart, the M79 is the Timex for you. Featuring a slightly beefier 40mm (vs 38mm) case, the M79 (M for mechanical, 79 for 1979) has a sporty, handsome look that riffs on the Q aesthetic. The larger size emphasizes the unique facets and above-average case finishing. The black dial features applied, lume-filled markers for a classic dive-aesthetic, while the black and blue “Batman” bezel steals the show.
Topping off the case is an acrylic crystal for a classic vintage look, while a highly comfortable, tool-less steel bracelet fastens the M79 to your wrist. With an automatic Miyota caliber inside, visible through the display case-back, the M79 is an excellent everyday watch with a ton of style. At $279, it’s also very reasonably priced, especially for a real conversation starter. Pick one up today while they last.
