Vintage Eye for the Modern Guy: The Timex M79 Automatic






It was about this time last year that budget-friendly Timex first unveiled its now-cult-classic Q Timex. That watch was an instant hit, with its ?spirit of ?79? style, vintage-inspired heritage, and ? most importantly for many consumers? ultra-affordable price tag of only $179. Last week, Timex unveiled the latest addition to the Q Timex series, called the M79 Automatic. The new watch uses much of the design elements seen in the original vintage-inspired Q, but in a slightly different direction ? using an automatic movement as opposed to a quartz one, an exhibition caseback, a slightly larger case to accommodate the larger mechanism, and a new color scheme.

The Timex M79 features a 40-mm stainless steel case with squared-off, beveled edges and contrasting brushed and polished finishing. On its side is a simple push/pull crown, while surrounding the dial is the unidirectional black-and-blue-sectioned ?Batman? 60-minute bezel, made of aluminum with a black plastic ring underneath, raising the bezel and giving a bit more life to the steel case.

As with the first Q Timex, the aluminum bezel is a good aesthetic touch, and somewhat more useful than the one used for its predecessor, whose 12-hour GMT scale received criticism for not having an additional, dedicated GMT hand to accompany it. This 60-minute bezel, like the one on the original Q, uses a sliding rather than a clicking mechanism, which makes it much more prone to accidental movement and thus less reliable if you’re trying to keep track of time in another time zone. If this is not a concern of yours, and you like the watch purely for its stylish charm ? as is likely the case with most buyers ? then this becomes much less an issue.
On the black dial of the watch you?ll find a simple outer minute ring, with printed white circle indices and variously shaped hour markers. At the 3 o?clock position is a day/date indicator which is set by the crown, and fortunately the new movement in this model will allow for a quick setting of the date; the quartz mechanism of the Q Timex did not allow this, and was a cause for significant criticism of that watch.

Sweeping over the dial are lume-filled circle and sword hands for the hour and minutes, respectively, while a simple red pointer is used to count the seconds. At the top of the dial is a simple Timex corporate logo, while the lower sector of the watch features the script ?Automatic? calling out its use of the mechanical movement (from which the watch draws the “M” in its “M79” name. This automatic movement inside is a very basic Miyota 8205, capable of approximately 40 hours of power reserve and displayed via an exhibition caseback.
The M79 Timex is currently out of stock via Timex?s online store, but is sure to become available and into select retailers worldwide very soon, priced at a very competitive $279 ? just $100 more than the quartz-powered Q Timex.

As far as its vintage-influenced features, the new M79 contin...
