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:
