As we’ve said plenty before, the Timex Q lineup is definitely a hit. They’ve nailed a new-vintage look that just sings, and really just lean in and embrace that, yes, these are quartz-powered watches. If you find yourself fond of chronographs, then this latest Timex Q Chronograph may just be calling your name.

Myself, I’m not big on a chronograph, but the classic look of a tachymeter scale and reverse panda dial layout set into the lugless Timex Q case just feels right (you can also go for it with a standard Panda layout as well). Is it a mineral crystal? It sure is. Is the bezel insert printed metal (likely aluminum)? Yup! I’d argue it’s actually closer to being period-correct that way, though it may have been plexi at some point.

Really, though, we’re talking about a chronograph at a $200 pricepoint – $199 on leather or $219 on the steel bracelet. Paired with the quartz movement, this means this is a great way to add a chronograph to your watch box, even if you don’t want (or need) to wear a chrono every single day.
