There is a slew of reasons why you should buy a Timex watch. The American brand has been making gorgeous timepieces for over a century that blend form and function while remaining incredibly reliable. Among its stout line of watches, the Navi XL Automatic has been a consistently popular watch since its debut a few years back. Given their acclaim, popular online retailer Huckberry enlisted Timex to create an exclusive, arctic-themed version of the Navi XL Automatic just in time for the winter.
The Huckberry x Timex Navi XL Automatic “Arctic” is a diver-style watch that’s reminiscent of the Rolex Polar Explorer II. Officially, the Huckberry x Timex Navi XL Automatic “Arctic” pays homage to the rugged tool watches that were purpose-built to assist climbers and explorers who ventured to the poles, as well as the peak of Mount Everest, as part of the International Geophysical project in 1957. Its arctic theme is channeled through its gorgeous snow-white dial, which perfectly contrasts the black military time markers and lumed indices and hands. For added stylistic contrast, the Huckberry x Timex Navi XL Automatic “Arctic” sports a handsome-looking orange sweeping seconds hand. Keeping in line with the purpose-built motif of its predecessors, it features a reliable unidirectional rotating dive-time bezel, 100m water resistance and is powered by a Japanese 21-jewel automatic movement. Moreover, the watch boasts a stainless steel case and bracelet along with an exhibition case back — a relative rarity for Timex.
While the silhouette and inspiration of this beautiful timepiece are rugged in nature, its gorgeous dial and stylish features make it a wonderful addition to any wardrobe. The Huckberry x Timex Navi XL Automatic “Arctic” retails for $279 and is now available on Huckberry’s website in limited numbers.
