I don’t know that I’ll ever get tired of the Q Timex watches, these just feel like designs that get so much so right. Lately, I’m sure the automatic version of the M79 has gotten all the love, but I say there’s nothing wrong with having a solid quartz in your lineup, and we’ve got some brand-new colors coming in on the Q Timex Color series.
Now, I will say up front – I’ve not actually handled any of these (though we’re working on that) so I’m going off of the photos. While other releases in the Q Timex Color series have been, well, quite colorful (I’m partial to the blue/red and blue/orange ones), now we’ve got some that are a bit more restrained, for those who want a little less attention on their wrist.
Of course, the dial (and even the handset) of the Q Timex Color should look familiar, but it’s just enough different that this is very much more a homage than a replica in my book. Of course, packing it all into the integrated lug case and the super-70s bracelet, and well, it’s quite it’s own thing. Oh, and what are those new colors? The Q Timex Color Series is available in Black/Black, Gold/Blue, and Silver/Black with pricing ranging from $179 – $189. And again, we’re working on getting in a review unit, so we’ll give you that hands-on when we can.

Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
