The Q Timex is a homage to the brand’s early quartz timepieces from the 1970s. When first released, quartz was cutting edge technology that eventually turned the watch industry on its head. Precise and inexpensive, quartz represented the future of watch making. As a forward-thinking brand Timex adopted this technology and created many truly unique and exotic designs around it. The Qs exemplify this with their sporty, but extremely ‘70s case designs, fun use of color and exceptional bracelets.
The Q Falcon Eye is a dressed up sports watch meant to evoke the swagger and bravado of ‘70s action stars and characters. Featuring a 38mm barrel case with hard lines, exceptional finishing, and gold-toned bezel and crown, the Q Falcon Eye is as ready for a martini as a car chase. The dial, however, might steal the show with a mix of a textured, wavy, electric blue surface and blocky gold markers. This is one that will attract some attention. Paired with a steel bracelet with a classic, masculine charm, the Q Falcon Eye is a sleek timepiece with ‘70s style to spare.
Powering the Q Falcon Eye is a Seiko quartz caliber for reliable time keeping. A nice feature to this movement is the day/date indicator shown at three on the dial. Additionally, the case has been designed with an easy access battery hatch, allowing you to swap the battery at home.
