In recent years, one of America’s oldest watchmakers — Timex — has looked back into its own heritage, with a particular focus on its quartz models from almost 50 years ago. The result of this exploration is the Q Timex Reissue series, which took modern watch fans by storm when the brand re-created the 1979 dive watch-inspired model, which subsequently led to a whole array of new colors and collaborative variations, including those with HODINKEE, Huckberry and Todd Snyder. Now, building on this revival series is the Marmont 1975 Reissue, offering a dressier timepiece for those with a taste for elegance.

Dialing the clock back to 1975, four years before the metallic bracelet-integrated model was born, the Marmon foregoes a sportier aesthetic in place of a dressy, almost art deco-esque feel. The design pairs a curvaceous 38mm gold-toned stainless steel case with a domed crystal and a clean dial, featuring minimalist baton indexes with symmetry only broken by the day-date complication at 3 o’clock. It’s finished with a black leather strap with a similarly gold-toned buckle, complete with a functional battery hatch on the caseback and a water resistance of 50m.

Along with this release, the American watch brand has also crafted a compact book to celebrate its five-decade journey with the Q Timex series, documenting all the models ever created under the name.

Available this month over on Timex’s website, the Q Timex Marmont 1975 Reissue will retail for $170 USD.

Elsewhere in watches, Seiko has released two new Astron models.
