TIMEX ORIGINALS, A UNIQUE COLLECTION INSPIRED BY THE TIMEX ARCHIVES.
Launching this fall, TIMEX® Originals is a collection of vintage-influenced timepieces which honours and celebrates the 156-year heritage of Timex time-keeping history. Inspired by the extensive product archives, the collection eloquently describes the Timex story through design, while conveying resolute authenticity.
The pinnacle style in the Timex Originals vintage collection is a striking reissue of a Timex watch from the 1970s. Maintaining all of the design details and signatures which give it character and individuality, the watch has been reproduced using modern materials and technology to deliver a contemporary edition of a beautiful original.
Dial designs from key decades also feature strongly. Taking one timeless case, Timex has sought inspiration from classic watch faces from the 20th century. From a pocket-watch in the early 1900s to a ‘Q’ electric watch in the 1970s, via the 1940s and 50s, each of the dials pays homage to its era through type-face, colours, detailing and finish, taking us on a journey through 20th century watch design. For further authenticity, each case and traditional vintage-construction expansion bracelet (and in some cases the leather attachments) has been tumbled to give a unique, time-worn finish and patina. Because of the nature of the treatment, no two cases or attachments are alike, giving each individual watch its own original identity.
