Price: ~$120-$150 new
Movement: Quartz (Intelligent Quartz)
Size: 42 mm
A great Quartz watch that I think many watch enthusiasts will enjoy because it has a unique and complex mechanism when compared to a traditional quartz watch. The watch comes in various colors to suit people’s taste.
What makes it so amazing to me is all the features that it has and its unique layout. The watch has a chronograph with a big seconds hand that moves in 1/5 of a second increments so it looks smooth like an automatic watch. The chornograph can measure up to 4 hours which is way more than the typical 30 minutes and can come in very handy. The hand that measures the minutes goes from 1 to 9 and then back which is also very unique. When the chronograph isn’t in use the extra hands indicate a second time zone which is a very convenient feature to have on an analog watch. To top it all off the watch has Timex’s famous Indiglo that illuminates the face of the whole watch for easy readability at night.
