I’m not gonna lie, there have been too many retro models and reissues from Timex lately. Yes, some great designs are worth a revival, but you always need the fresh, the new, the innovations. Otherwise your brand stagnates.
So the Timex Midtown chrono is both routine and refreshing at the same time. On the one hand it looks remarkably similar to amny other quartz chrono watches from the last 2-3 years, with a clean design, nice deep dish effect on the dial, plus those classic piston type pushers.
It has a 40mm case, mineral crystal and a japan sourced movement inside. Comes in grey or white. There is a blue dial variant for the US market.
It’s a no nonsense everyday watch and apart from the steep £145 price tag, it has a great deal going for it.
Verdict; Accurist, Sekonda, Lorus, Casio and many more brands have a head start in this niche. Many are well under £100 too.
