- They’re back! Timex just put out another full run of their very popular Q reissue. I’m not going to bother with a deep dive — I reviewed the Q way back in May, so be sure to check that out if you’d like my full thoughts on the watch. But to briefly sum it all up, I’ll include the conclusion here:
“At $179, the Q Timex offers an enticing package. The design is highly appealing, the execution belies the prices, and, perhaps most important here, it’s just a fun watch, and just in time for summer. Everything about it looks vintage but for tick of the seconds hand (which, by the way, isn’t as loud as it is in some of Timex’s other watches), but it also feels modern in its build. And since it’s so simple to maintain, this could be a fun little beater that can hang around in the rotation for years to come.”
All of the above remains true (except, of course, for the “just in time for summer” bit), and now that I’ve spent even more hands-on time with the watch, I’ve grown to like it even more. It’s held up well, and the look really is timeless.
If the response to the previous run of the Q is any sort of indication, it’s going to move fast, and I’m not quite sure if there’s going to be another run. So if you’ve been eyeing the watch in the months since it’s first sold out, then be sure to get yours ASAP. Q Timex
