Whether it’s a flat out reissue or a revamp/remake of a vintage model, we’ve seen a new trend of bringing back retro watches this year: from Bulova reissuing its iconic ’70s Computron to Seiko giving an update to its legendary “Captain Willard” to Tudor releasing a Black Bay inspired by a prototype it made for the US Navy back in 1968. Now, Timex has followed suit, announcing the reissue of its classic watch: the 1979 Q Timex.

With this reissue, Timex has stayed true to the original, recreating every detail of the 38 mm timepiece with close attention. Whether it’s the luminescent paint on the dial and the rotating dual-colored “Pepsi” bezel, or the retro woven stainless-steel bracelet and the modern quartz movement, Timex has carefully pieced together a fully accurate reissue of the 1979 model. The movement, in particular, is a Seiko caliber PC33, capable of presenting the time, date, and day or week. The classic navy blue dial is branded with “Q TIMEX” and “QUARTZ”, a tribute to the end of the mechanical movement and Timex’s evolution into the quartz era. To finish things off, the watch is also water-resistant to a depth of 50 meters.

If you’re a fan of vintage timepieces, the 1979 Q Timex Reissue is now available over at Timex’s online store, retailing for $179 USD.

For more watch news, Jacob & Co. has put a working oil reservoir into its latest “Oil Pump” watch.
