Timex is honoring its storied, 160-year history with its new Timex Archive collection.
The sharp-looking collection looks to classic timepieces from the venerable watch giant and then re-interpreted them with new technologies and modern design flares for the contemporary watch geek.
It is a great way to rock a vintage-looking timepiece without having to track down a collectible or risk paying top dollar on something that might not still function properly.
Anyone who wants to customize a watch from the various dials and straps included can build their own on an online "turntable."
But sometimes it is easier to trust the pros. Timex has a vast array of "archive" watches categorized into three distinct collections: Offspring, Pioneers and Metropolis.
Here, some of our favorites from each:
Tailored for the preppy set, the Offspring collection borrows elements from Timex watches from the '50s, '60s and '70s.
The Pioneers collection, distinguished by more rugged and sturdier straps, is perfect for the outdoorsman.
City slickers should find use in these "urban utility"-inspired looks. Metal cases and bold designs set the Metropolis collection apart.
