We’ll be honest – out of all the watches that get released during the year (including the high end options from heritage Swiss brands), we get most excited by new Timex. Sure, they don’t have the coolest movements, but the brand’s over 150 years of experience has left them with a rich backlog of designs that they’re more than happy to draw on for insight. Take their most recent release, the Timex Navi Harbor, for instance.
Sold exclusively on Mr Porter, these military inspired dive watches feature a stainless steel case, a rotational bezel, and a trio of luminescent hands that are driven around the black face by a reliable and accurate Quartz movement. That face sits under a thick crystal and boasts easily legible indices and Arabic numerals on the interior indicating military time. And to top it all off, the watches are waterproof to 100m. Right now these are available in two models – one stainless steel with two nylon straps, and one slightly larger stainless steel black case with a stonewashed leather strap.
