Nostalgia ain’t what it used to be: Timex turns back the clock with Q Timex 1972 Reissue

A close-up of the dial on the Timex Q Collection 1972 reissue watch

Dig out your Ziggy Stardust vinyl and dust down the Pong arcade game, it’s 1972 all over again! Timex will delight watch aficionados and nostalgia buffs alike with the latest edition to its historical watches reissue project – the Q Timex 1972 . The original spearheaded the brand’s range of quartz timepieces, and now you can pick one up as new. 

Classic design elements include a highly polished gold-tone tonneau case, with dimensional floating hour markers that hover above a striking red dial. The redux also features a period-perfect domed acrylic crystal on top, with a coin-slot battery hatch underneath.

Faced with the advent of advanced Japanese quartz models in the Seventies, mechanical watchmakers took refuge in design and precision. For Timex, that meant the Q-Timex collection, which comprised a range of now iconic releases.
