This was my second dive watch and also second timex and it’s 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’t 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 £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’s 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’t entirely interested in the green version so I thought I’d show it some love for £60.
Since then it’s 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’t 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’t recommend and it did nothing). When that didn’t 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.
41mm lug to lug
2.2mm lug width (tapering effect)
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.
