Your dad probably wore a Timex... and his dad probably did, too. There's a lot we dig about their watches in general, and this model is a reissue of their original 1979 Q Diver. (The Q is for 'quartz movement,' which disrupted the entire watch industry long before 'disruption' was even a buzzword.) It's billed as "true to the past" all around, with luminescent paint on the face and a functional hatch on the back, so all you need is a coin to open it up and replace the battery. And in a nod to the iconic Pepsi bezel made famous by Rolex and PanAm, it's got a rotating top ring in blue and red.
“I like watches and clocks. But a good bit of it was in appreciation of what they meant to my dad. He died in 2010, and I miss him every day – but I get to think of him every time I hear a clock tick, which is pretty cool.”
