The modern world has produced many great innovations, but sometimes you need a watch that oozes classic style. On those moments, the watch you need is from the Timex Originals range.
The Timex Originals range is broken down in to a number of sub-categories relating to a period in the development of the brand. Models are available representing the 1900’s, 1940’s, 1950’s and the 1970’s. The items look traditional but inside are right up-to-date with some models featuring Indiglo night-light system and water resistance to 50m. These watches have also been tumbled. Each one has a time worn finish to enhance the vintage look. No two tumbled watches will be alike making each piece as unique as a original, but with added Indiglo technology in some models.
Timex Originals – History and technology combined.
The earliest dated of these collections is a faithful reproduction of the original 1900s dial in a solid stainless steel case that plays to the old and the new. The brown dial with burnt gold numerals reflecting the past and the contemporary mother of pearl dials giving a modern twist to the collection on distressed leather strap or signature herringbone expander bracelet.
The 1940’s collection reflects the spirit of a heavily militarised decade. Outfitted with a solid stainless steel case and a 24-hour dial, these modern replicas, carefully recreated in muted colours and accented by military green, medic white and air force blue canvas straps or signature herringbone expander bracelets.
The 1950’s was a time of celebration for many. They had survived the war of the previous decade and they began to feel more prosperous. This was also the time of classic Hollywood glamour and the roots of the teenage revolution.
The 1950s Timex Originals evoke the optimism of the decade and a return to brighter more vibrant colours accented with clean crisp white dials. The Timex Orginals classic easy reader dial features a choice of colourful canvas straps or an expanding metal bracelet.
The Timex originals range finishes with a recreation of the 1970’s. A distinctly modern era, where following the moon landings at the tail end of the previous decade, technology and futuristic designs were beginning to take precedence. Designs are cool avant-garde design with high attention to detail on the dials. The solid stainless steel case compliments highly polished dial accents and deep dial colours of blue, black and sunray silver on rich pebble grain leather straps.
