What do you get when you merge Timex, the legendary watchmaker regarded for rugged, stylish timepieces, and The James Model, the Portland, OR-based mostly purveyor of outstanding day-to-day have products? 1 extremely stylish, trustworthy watch: the Timex x The James Model Expedition North Titanium Observe, to be actual.

The constrained-edition timepiece (just 500 separately numbered models have been created) is a absolutely new style and the very first release in Timex’s new Expedition North Collection, which debuts this tumble. The watch represents what both companies do most effective: creating finely crafted, adventure-prepared products that mesh seamlessly into your day-to-day wardrobe. While some collaborations provide opposites together, this watch highlights two brand names that have related methods to item style, and the ensuing watch is, unsurprisingly, a standout.

The Expedition North attributes a 41mm situation created from titanium for outstanding power, small fat, and a delicate gunmetal coloration. It’s paired with a simple, hugely legible dial style (a Timex hallmark) with a 24-hour structure and date window neatly embedded at a few o’ clock. The hands and indices are coated with Super-LumiNova for quick reading in small light, and anti-reflective sapphire crystal fights glare from the sun as nicely. With its matching black nylon strap, it’s uncomplicated, understated, and hugely wearable—exactly what you want in an “everyday” watch.

But that doesn’t mean the Expedition North is without the need of surprises. If you flip the watch around, an open situation back again gives a check out of the inner workings of the 21-jewel Japanese automatic movement—a awesome contact on a watch that retails for just under $350. It’s also drinking water resistant to 200 meters, so swims, splashes, and just after-dinner dishwashing will not pose a trouble for i both.

Sad to say, all 500 watches have now sold out, but continue to keep an eye out for resellers—with its rugged dependability and good appears, you will not regret including this timepiece to your collection.
