From a distance, the Q Timex really does look like a vintage Rolex. Up close, it just looks like a handsome and proudly quartz timepiece for a sensible but stylish man. This reissue pays homage to the 1979 Pepsi-bezeled original version that openly copies the prestigious and far more expensive Swiss brand yet still maintains its own distinct flavor with the domed acrylic crystal, 12-hour bi-directional bezel, beveled and hooded lugs, coin-slot caseback for quick battery changes, and that famous woven mesh bracelet. Upgrades include Rolex-style Breguet hands and a contrasting red second hand. The 38mm diameter is decidedly on the small (but classic) side, so it can be worn by those who are circumferentially challenged at the wrist. The handsome watch has already been sold out, but you can register to get notified when the new affordable classic gets restocked for the hungry horological masses.
