The idea of wearing something (i.e. raw denim) every single day is weird to some people, but not when it comes to watches. In fact, most people who own a wristwatch wear it every day and feel naked without it. That said, we don’t get as many submissions of aged watches as we’d like, so this Timex Weekender Chronograph from Jeffrey of Oceanside, CA, is a real treat for this week’s Fade Friday!
A gift from his Grandfather, Jeffrey has worn this Timex wristwatch for 4 years straight. It’s been through kitchen jobs, camping trips, and plenty of hikes throughout its tenure on Jeffrey’s wrist, leaving it with a rich, rugged patina that adds to the already-abundant charm of this Timex classic. The black leather strap has softened and creased over the years, which is evident from the underside which is heavily burnished from daily wear. The case has also picked up a few little dings and scratches – just enough to make the timepiece look well-used but not battered.
Jeffrey is about to change the strap on this beauty, which will give it a new lease of life and the potential for even more patina.
