If you missed out on the Q-Timex drop earlier this year, don’t sleep on the Timex M79 Batman. A fresh interpretation of an iconic timepiece, the new watch blends a much-loved look with a workhorse automatic movement. Borrowing the same hidden lugs and black and blue “Batman” bezel as the ’70s classic, the M79 also adds unidirectional functionality that hasn’t been seen before on this style.
Donning a more sophisticated black dial, day/date windows and Mercedes-style hands – it’s slightly larger than the original Q-Timex upping the case size to 40mm as to accommodate the larger automatic movement. The watch is finished with a tapered stainless steel bracelet, another fitting tribute to its predecessor.
These revamp’s from Timex are known to be extremely popular. If you do want to get your hands on it, you’d better move quick. Just like the Batman, these will disappear quicker than you can say “batarang”.
