Thread: Super funky Timex in the house

  1. #1

    Super funky Timex in the house

    This one arrived today and I'm rather pleased with it, it's one of the retro styled originals line and is a cut above Timexes I've owned in the past quality wise, with a stainless rather than plastic or brass case. The dial is very nicely done, and the case is vintage in size as well as style (34mm excl crown with 18mm lugs).
    The leather strap it came on is decent enough, but I've paired it with a Dennis the Menace nato I had that suits it well.

    For info, model number is T2N393ZB and it is currently available from Amazon UK for 35

    This one's been on my radar a while, I've almost bought one several times.

    You're not making it easy to resist! It looks fantastic!

    P.S I always forget that the UK and US mean two different boys when they refer to Dennis the Menace.

    Indeed he would. Ours is more pest than menace.

    I suppose with subdivided seconds on a quartz, you've never the problem of it not hitting some markers?

    Exactly! Tbh I've come to think of the whole quartz watches hitting every marker thing to be an unfair and unrealistic expectation. We put too much pressure on these watches and need to ease up.

    Minute markers should be on separate micro-adjustable ring
