Our Timex M79 Automatic Is Finally Here

Today Timex releases a highly-anticipated new watch in the M79 Automatic, a new timepiece that draws direct inspiration from the Q Timex 1979 Reissue and packs a self-winding movement in its slightly-upsized case.

That’s right — this new watch is a true automatic, drawing its power from a 21-jewel movement that features a day and date display. Housed in a 40mm case (for reference, the Q Timex 1979 Reissue sits at 38mm in diameter), the M79 riffs on the retro style of its forbears but ups the ante with a display case back, a new color scheme and a unidirectional ratcheting bezel. If our Q Reissue was close but not quite close enough to what you wanted before, this new release should be enough to take you the distance.
