Clean, modern, sporty look...

by technoguy


That orange second hand has a beautiful retro look against the black dial and I think I prefer this simple diver look to the more distracting chronographs with their subdials crowding out the hour markers.

Nice closeup of the balance wheel's topside mounted coil. I notice that, like their earlier automatics, Timex continued to use that brass peg to secure the hairspring to the balance coq. I wish that they had used a screw down system to secure the hairspring like practically all other manufactures's used, but I guess this troublesome to repair configuration got their costs down.
