Purple is definitely one of the in colours this year for watches. Now that may not matter a jot to you, as you proudly continue to wear 90s baggy tops and jeans like Bez n Sean are still twisting your melon man..
If you’re baffled, no worries. It’s a Happy Mondays reference and if you haven’t discovered their hits, then give it a listen sometime. I digress again, let’s examine the spec on this Timex T80 which has a cool 80s vibe about it.
You can get a milspec green one, which is more Ukraine $30 billion dollar freedom fighter if you prefer. Both have a night light, timer, alarm, expanding steel bracelet and 30m of water resistance. Retail is £65, which is a bit more than the classic Casio retro digital models, which start at about £30 online and rise to £55-ish for the bigger 36mm case variants.
Entry level on the Casio is about 33mm, but you get the same 30m resistance and a steel strap.
One for sure, buying a new 80s digital watch is way cheaper than trying to get an original example repaired. More at the Timex UK site here.
