Timex continues its streak of savvy collabs with these sharp new timepieces created with Mr. Porter—watches with a stripped-down style that looks good in just about any situation. It's dubbed "MK1" and that minimalist name reflects its military roots.

It's based on a standard-issue timepiece style the U.S. military adopted in the 1980s. That's the thing about the military—they don't go for frills, but they like durability and versatility. Both flavors of the MK1 nail that aesthetic.

Timex's MK1 is available in aluminum with an oiled canvas strap and also a blackened aluminum look and comfortable grosgrain strap.

The MK1 comes in a 41 mm case and features quartz movement, date, Timex's standard-issue Indiglo backlight and a black dial with sword hands. And yeah, they're tough.

The MK1 is water-resistant down to 30 meters (about 100 feet) and they come in an elegant, old-school Timex Archive presentation case.

Best of all: the price. The aluminum with an oiled canvas strap costs $115 and the blacked-out model with grosgrain is $105. Order yours here today.
