The M79 automatic is a homage to the Timex watches of old and this already handsome watch now has a blue dial variant in the range. Priced at £265 it has a Miyota movement inside, see-thru caseback, steel bracelet, day/date feature and is water resistant to 50m.
Nice all-rounder and 40mm case width makes it an everyday choice for many watch fans.
The only downside is the price, as there are plenty of 40mm automatics with Seiko NH35 or Miyota movements inside from Indie brands on Kickstarter, Indiegogo or Ali Express.
If you want to splash out there’s always an Orient at about £180-£200.
