Finding a stylish yet durable watch is of the utmost importance to the precise, timely customer. Now Timex has paired up with J Crew to create a vintage-inspired time-piece modeled after 1940s military watches—combining J Crew’s classicism with Timex’s functionality.
The watch, made with tradition in mind, features an intentionally distressed face to give the appearance of a vintage item worn with love. The contrasting radar-like red second hand and the exposed nylon strap both add to the military feel. The watch, $150, will be available in select stores.
And about its durability: water-resistant, long-running (it features a five-year battery life) and protected by a stainless steel case, this baby could survive a war zone.
