Timex Brings Back An ‘80s Digital Watch Icon In A Range Of Inspired Colors

Timex has been turning more and more to its extensive archives in recent years, and the American watchmaker’s latest release, the Timex Atlantis Nuptse, is sure to tug at the heartstrings of nostalgic ‘80s and ‘90s fans.

Timex’s digital Expedition watch made its way to U.S. shores in 1991, but the watch actually first debuted in Japan back in ‘85. There, it was known as the Atlantis, and Timex’s Atlantis Nuptse line resurrects the watch in an array of new colors for the Japanese market. The old-school digital watches contain specs that are in line with most modern Timex digital watches. They feature 100m water resistance, Indiglo illumination, and a quartz movement that includes chronograph, timer, second timezone, and date complications. But what’s most interesting about this revival is the array of colors available. There’s a green and yellow “Forest Service” version and an all-white “Mountain” edition that’s a tribute to the US Army’s cold weather 10th Mountain Division, plus eight others. The Atlantis Nuptse line is affordable, starting at around $85, and is currently available in Japan only.
