Just picked this up. A Timex MK1 Mechanical, a simple good looking watch competitively priced. From the Timex Archive series of watches, this is reminiscent of the “camper” from the 80s and “sprite” from the 70s.

 

First impressions. Quality is good. Nicely finished 36mm stainless steel case and a well printed dial. Check out the serifs on the numerals. Lume is nothing amazing, that doesn’t bother me though. I think the acrylic crystal is great, gives the watch a period charm. The 20j movement is hacking, another plus. Although at this price point it won’t be anything amazing, a Seagull perhaps. I will check accuracy and power reserve over the next few days. Strap is robust and the quick release useful. However I’ve put mine on a simpler one. So far so good!

 

Case: Stainless steel

Dial: Green

Dimensions: 36mm

Water Resistance: 50 meters

Movement: 20 jewel hand wound

Strap: Canvas, quick-release
