Q Timex is back!

I just received an email alert from Timex and just placed my order for the Q Timex. Itís a terrific beater watch that borrows heavily from the Rolex ďPepsiĒ right down to the jubilee style bracelet. Only $179. They sold out the last time they were offered, mostly due to this HODINKEE article:

Happy hunting!

Just got mine from the UPS man! Got it during the restock a couple days ago. It's my only quartz, but wow, it's so cool!

If this had a mechanical movement in it I'd be over the moon, but truth be told, it's fine as it is.

Checked this morning and they are sold out again! This is the third time. I placed an order on Friday when they were momentarily back in stock. Still waiting for it to be shipped. Looks like a cool watch.

Iíve gotta say, I was really disappointed with the Timex Q reissue. I was hoping to love it, but I didnít.

Iím returning it.

Mine was delivered yesterday from Timex ... Its a great looking watch ... I'm sure it cost them less than $20 to build it .. so they making a tidy profit ... The only disappointing part is the cheesy-azz clasp ... everything else is great - even the packaging was top notch.

I think thatís right. And probably why I didnít love it. It felt really cheap to me. The styling is right on, but I dunno. I just couldnít get there. I really wanted to love it. I just didnít.

This is why I love watches.

Timex doing this true to their history and not pretending on it is so authentic.

Love that it’s a simple quartz and only ‘$20’ to make.

If it were more than $200 or so and added an auto it would be seen as a poseur re-ed and die on the shelf. Maybe even be laughed at.

Give Timex an award already.

It's refreshing to wear something that costs so little. And the fact that it's available makes it more so.

Just received mine, too. I wasn’t expecting much for $179, but it’s surprisingly nice. Definitely something to bang around on weekends.

i really struggle to understand the Hodinkee led hype for a quartz watch with a GMT bezel yet no GMT hand and a Seiko like day date window.
You get what you pay for people.

If you like it that’s what matters but an enthusiast watch it is not.
It’s A QUARTZ TIMEX...
