After the massive success of its Q Timex 1979 Reissue, which saw its first batch sell out within hours, American watchmaker Timex is now following up with another watch inspired by the 1979 model, but bringing it more in line with the company’s current direction by making it: automatic.

Dubbed the M79 Automatic, the new homage timepiece adopts much of the Q Timex’s design sensibilities, with the hidden lugs, the round indices paired with rectangular ones at 6 and 9 o’clock, the triangular pointer at 12 o’clock, and the day and date window at 3 o’clock. Unlike its predecessor however, the case has been enlarged from 38mm to 40mm to accommodate the now automatic Japanese Miyota self-winding movement, which you can admire through the watch’s see-through caseback. Timex has also changed up the color choices, moving from a blue dial and “Pepsi” bezel to the now clean black dial and two-toned “Batman” bezel — which is now uni-directional. To round things off for the diver-inspired timepiece, the company has equipped it with a 50 meter water resistance.

There’s currently no official release date for Timex’s new M79 Automatic, but those interested can head over to its website and sign up to be notified when it’s available.

For more things watches, Bell & Ross has released three new BR V2 models inspired by the land, air, and sea.
