The Q Timex Reissue line of watches harkens back to the heyday of the quartz watch becoming part of people’s everyday carry. Its nostalgic shape evokes a retro 1970s aesthetic that have so far been matched with the bright and bold colors of the era to match. But if what you’re looking for is style and functionality rather than bright colors, you should take a look at the new blacked-out discreet colorway of the Q Timex Reissue watch.

This edition of the Q Timex Reissue features a black case, crown, dial, face, and strap. It makes for a sleek look that makes for high visibility when paired with the lumed markers and rotating bezel. The discreet design of this 38mm watch is also due to its vintage heritage, a throwback to the days when you could have a diver style watch without a massive case diameter and huge bulk. A lot of the weight savings comes from the aluminum bezel placed on top of the 50 meter water-resistant case, the use of acrylic crystal, and the watch’s thin, woven, and self-adjusting stainless steel strap.

If that strap isn’t your style its 18mm lug width gives you plenty of options for the NATO or Zulu style strap of your choice. And as far as features go, Timex’s many years of experience goes into the reliable quartz movement contained inside of the watch, and a day and date complication is included for your convenience. As an added bonus, the battery hatch in the back makes for easy maintenance without having to bring it in to a watch repair shop to replace its cell.

With this new discreet edition of the Q Timex Reissue watch, you can integrate all the best parts of its vintage nostalgic design into your EDC ensemble in a sleek and stealthy package. Its low-profile appearance won’t feel out of place in a more modern and minimalist setting, but its unique heritage will help it stand out from the rest when you wear it on your wrist.
