This was my second dive watch and also second timex and it鈥檚 a timex Q reissue.

I loved the look of this watch and wanted one for a while and at a point it sort of became a grail piece. This one in particular reminds me of poker which I play with my friends and wear it for luck (don鈥檛 gamble, just like the card game) I watched so many videos on them and eventually went looking to buy one.

Most of them online was over 拢70 which I find to be too much for a watch given my budget. I found this green one being the cheapest and while it鈥檚 not got the traditional Q reissue look of the Pepsi dial or others, I thought it looked like a Rolex hulk while not being an homage and it seemed people wasn鈥檛 entirely interested in the green version so I thought I鈥檇 show it some love for 拢60.

Since then it鈥檚 been one of my favourite watches to wear and is in my active rotation. I love the retro aesthetic and styling with it being made for cheap for being cheap.

The honey moon phase wasn鈥檛 the best and I did in fact consider selling it, not because of the colour (the green is a perfect dark shade) but because of the bracelet. I noticed how the bracelet was similar to my casio A158w but in person, it was far more stiffer and caused the watch to move to one side.

Personally I like my watches in the middle of my wrist so I can see the bracelet. I initially thought the problem was due to the length of it, so I shortened it by twisting parts of the bracelet off (wouldn鈥檛 recommend and it did nothing). When that didn鈥檛 work I really took a gamble and probably decreased the resale value and for a couple of days I was preparing to really sell it.

I decided to try change the straps to an old Casio I had lying around and that worked so I was abouts to order an f91w to harvest the strap. I put the normal bracelet back on and accidentally switched the bracelet sides and found the watch fitted. I only put them back on probably because of some kind of OCD but it worked well.

Specs:

38mm diameter

41mm lug to lug

2.2mm lug width (tapering effect)

Friction bezel

Day date function

Quartz movement (easily removable)

Very visible loom

Overall while I essentially mutilated the poor bracelet, I fixed the problem which meant I was happily able to wear the watch and still do to this day.

I've been thinking about the timex q recently, i like the bracelet from the GMT more but i don't actually want or need a GMT. Yours looks great!

Thanks, the GMT version does have a nice bracelet.

Have you tried looking for broken gmt reissues? or maybe for a compromise if you don鈥檛 like the regular reissue bracelet, the Casio A159s? (Not the a158).

Personally I鈥檇 recommend the normal reissue watch but the strap is something I wouldn鈥檛 recommend but isn鈥檛 a GMT more high end? I think they鈥檙e more sought after in collections.

Final thing you could do is maybe remove the GMT hand so it鈥檚 still a GMT, operating as a GMT but with a severed hand. (I wouldn鈥檛 recommend that but if a watchmaker was to, maybe it鈥檚 viable)

Haha i wouldn't dare try to remove the gmt hand by myself... the a159 may work, but to be honest i could just thug it out. I prefer to wear my watches tighter than most people, so the hair pulling wouldn't be THAT bad.
