The original, disposable, Timex MK1 was produced for a period of only two months in 1982, as a bid to win a government contract. Now, 35 years later, it’s been given a slick aluminium makeover that keeps it surprisingly light, but — thanks to the construction-grade metal used — maintains its strength. The signature nylon strap adds to the light-weight, durable feel.
Remaining as understated and wearable as ever, the Timex MK1 Aluminium is available in four colorways including blue, black, Olive and silver. Have a scroll through the shoppable lookbook above and check out the full collection at Timex’s web store. MK1 watches are available for $79 USD/£69.99 GBP.
