They look... ( movement )

by Knut

 

...very stylish indeed! A nice blend of modern and vintage design. As for the movement: expect a Chinese made 22 jewels movement with a Power Reserve indicator. I have no idea of the quality of these movements, but hopefully Timex will have modified them somewhat. I will of course get one myself - after all it's a Timex. I still have questions about the quality of the movement though... If it is priced at less than $80-90 I guess it's a fair price. I just got a brand new Seiko 5 Racer Automatic with the dependable 7S26 movement ( 21 jewels ) for $32, and to be honest I think the movement in that watch is a tad better than the Chinese 22 jewels.

Still, I am very happy that Timex finally gets on the Auto-wagon. They do look stunning, and I would be proud to wear one!
