Let’s face it, it’s not only vintage denim and workwear that is pulled out of a brand’s archive and reproduced. Everything gets re-visited and reproduced at some stage – even 90’s streetwear or Air Jordans. So why not a wristwatch?
Steeped in technology developments and mechanical advancements in the last 100 years, the world of horology has a lot to offer by way of classic designs. Enter, Timex. With its origins as a company dating back to 1854, Timex has its fair share of ‘heat’ in its archive. This time (no pun intended) they’ve re-visited the 80’s and re-issued the LCA 32.5mm Stainless Steel Bracelet Watch.
Now, the beauty of this timepiece is its universal appeal — you can imagine anyone from Ronald Reagan to Steve Jobs and Tupac to your high school geography teacher sporting this retro number. It features a stainless steel case, adjustable stainless steel bracelet, chronograph face, and digital display, countdown timer, alarm function, and it’s water-resistant down to 30m.
And if that wasn’t enough, it’s not going to break the bank either.
Available for $149 from Timex
