Timex Reaches Into Its Archives To Reissue The Retro Digital LCA Watch

If there’s a brand that enjoys rifling through its archives for inspiration, it’s Timex. While the brand has pulled plenty of design principles from its past watches, there are times when a design is just too good to renovate. The Q Timex Digital LCA is one such example.

While the original, full-faced model made its debut in the late 1980s, its vintage design was lost in the gradual transition toward more modernized wristwear. After searching for an iconic silhouette to pull back into its rotation, Timex’s designers settled on the Digital LCA, a liquid crystal analog variant that sports a unique digital/analog display. But the 32.5-millimeter reissue isn’t all original. To bring the watch into the modern-day, a gold-tone stainless-steel (and original stainless-steel) case has been implemented, collaborating with the timepiece’s original pre-INDIGLO single-bulb backlight for a truly retro revision. Head to Timex’s website to pick up the digital wonder for $150.
