Timex makes quartz versions of Batman, Coke and Root Beer Q Timex 1979 reissues


Q Timex 1979 retro reissues have always been commercially successful for the brand and its authorized dealers, so the company is sticking to a winning formula with a fresh collection of styles that draw not so subtle design cues from Rolex’s GMT Master watches.

Last year Timex released mechanical automatic models in the recognizable color combinations.

This year, Q Timex 1979 reissues come with quartz movements in the black and blue of a Batman and the brown and black that Rolex fans have dubbed the Root Beer.


“Inspired by the runaway success of our original Q Timex Reissue 1979 watch, which has sold out time and time again, this update to the Q Timex collection offers more colors to choose from,” Timex says.

“And it still packs all the heritage-inspired features you already love like a rotating bezel, woven stainless-steel bracelet, functional battery hatch and domed acrylic crystal, making for a faithful expansion of what the Q Timex collection does so well,” the company adds.

The expanding collection now includes Coke, Batman and Root Beer styles in prices from $179 for 38mm quartz models to $279 for 40mm automatics.
