Timex Originals are a new brand of watches recently added to our Shade Station shelves and have been launched to celebrate the Timex history which dates back over 156 years. Timex Originals watches are highly vintage inspired and each design is a modern reinvention of those classic Timex designs that have been launched throughout the brand’s extensive history. Timex Originals watches are a big hit among the style icons including Olivia Palermo, Kelly Rutherford and Jamie Lynn Sigler who were pictured sporting a few of the various Timex Originals watch styles at a recent Henri Bendel boutique event.
Many Timex Originals watches are unisex and the designs boast that classic and vintage look that works so well with a variety of styles. The Timex T Retro watch for example, is a unisex model that features a red textured fabric strap and a bold, sleek and minimally designed dial in the original Timex style. The colourful straps and movements in this collection form the contemporary additions which bring the watches right up to date, yet the overall aesthetic still retains the original vintage look.
If you are looking for a super sleek Timex watch, there is a great selection of smart and chic Timex Original watches including the Timex T Reissue watch which is reintroduction of a 1970s iconic Timex watch design. This watch features a stainless steel bracelet strap that is specifically elasticated to represent the original retro style! What is particularly special about these Timex Originals watches are that each case and elasticated strap has been tumbled to create a unique worn-in and weathered look. This also means that each watch is slightly different in appearance from the next, providing extra character and identity.
The Easy Reader watches are also ultra cool and chic with their polished leather straps and coloured stitching detailing. The dial is again large and minimal; often in white with black time markers and with the simple Timex logo at the top centre. For something more casual and sport inspired, the Camper watches are a fun style with variously coloured fabric straps in retro tones, and some sporting striped patterns and pops of colour on the dial.
The Timex Originals collection is highly special because the various watches represent the Timex journey and story, and convey that authenticity and quality that Timex watches are highly respected for. Perfect for every watch enthusiast that appreciates the history of watch design, Timex Originals watches creatively fuse the essence of the old and new and make the ideal unique accessory.

The Ironman Triathlon is a sporting event that requires a great deal of skill, determination and strength. It includes three sports; swimming, biking, and running which you carry out one after the other. Timex is a watch brand that designs watches geared towards sporting requirements and to enhance and measure performance. The brand wanted to add a sporting edge to their simply styled watches and the first sports orientated Timex launched watch was the Timex Ironman Triathlon watch which catered for all sporting elements of the Triathlon.
When this watch was released, it was incredibly well received and the demand for sports watches with a simple aesthetic and affordable price tag was still very apparent. Today, Timex watches have varied prices which of course depend on the features, the E-Instruments watch for example is £135 where as it includes functions such as an altimeter, compass and weather station. On the other side of the price scale, the new Core Digital watch, which as the name suggests has the primary function of displaying the time is £18. Even this watch has an added stop watch feature however and Timex watches in general are renowned for their high quality and great functions which far exceed their price.
Timex watches are popular among many people aside from sports enthusiasts. The aesthetic of the watches are durable and smart and therefore they easily transcend from day to night and as cosmetic features are an increasingly important factor in the popularity of watches, they are very much on trend. Also, there are now Timex watches made exclusively for women and these often incorporate scaled down versions of the men’s styles such as the Field Small. Some of the ladies styles also come in more girly colours as well as neutral including pink and purple.
One of the most innovative features which is included in many Timex watches such as the gold plated Core Digital watch, is the use of the Indi glow backlight which at the press of the button, lights up the whole display making the watches visible at night or in low lighting. When this new technology was introduced to the Timex Ironman Triathlon watches in 1992 it was one of the main selling points of the watch and this design became one of the most popular watch across the world.
In today’s collection of Timex watches, the Ironman Triathlon watch has developed and with new versions include the Timex Shock Resistant which includes numerous functions and is designed to endure multiple sporting activities. These watches are ideal for expert athletes including Cricket star Brett Lee and serious trainers. For people who enjoy sports goods, triathlon watches are must-have collectibles.
Timex watches are still affordable and made to the highest quality. They retain that raw Timex quality but are now very much regarded as fashion forward and super stylish. With the added benefit of being versatile and versions which cater for both daywear and night wear, Timex is definitely one of the hot watch brands to look out for.

Timex watches are one of the classic watch brands and were first launched in the 1949. The company originally began as the Waterbury Clock company, which produced the first affordable timepieces in America in the 1850’s. Over the years, the Waterford Clock company evolved into the Waterbury Watch Company who designed incredibly affordable watches. However, when the Great Depression hit America in the 1940’s, this company was bought out by the U.S. Time Company who were then responsible for the production of Timex watches.
During the Second World War, watches with mechanical timing were highly in demand and thus the first range of Timex wristwatches launched in 1950 had incredibly precise timing and reliability to cater for this need. The company was generating a huge volume of sales with their Timex watches and as time progressed and the brand became more profitable, they invested in advertising to further raise their profile. Memorable ads include those featuring John Cameron Swayze who carried out live watch torture /durability tests on television. The most famous advertising line for Timex is ‘takes a licking and keep on ticking‘. It was at this point that Timex watches were one of every three purchased in the United States.
Timex remained a firm favourite and it seemed that every household owned at least one Timex watch. Over the next thirty years over 500 million mechanical Timex watches were sold and the brand was the most popular in America. However at this point, competition was beginning to surface and Timex was forced to keep up with style and mechanical trends. In the 1980’s the brand changed its name to Timex Corporation and introduced new digital watches entitled the ‘Ironman Triathlon’ which were geared for sports and athletes. As the brand already had a loyal consumer base, this new watch also became extremely popular and actually became the country’s best selling watch. Over the next two decades, Timex continued their excellent reputation through the launch of further innovate designs. They introduced electroluminescent watch faces and this is a feature which has continued through to the watches today in the form of the brand’s Indiglo night light. Moving with the technologies extra features were added to Timex watches including calendars, organisers. In the 1990’s, the company collaborated with Microsoft and Motorola in joint ventures to produce other complex watches and pagers.
Timex is still an incredibly popular brand today and has a great combination of watches including some fun and colourful versions for kids such as the Timex Kids Analogue which come in a wide array of colour tones and pattens. The objective of the brand has always been to produce affordable watches with functionality and the new Timex models include smarter watches with multi-functions such as the Timex Core Digital, sports specific watches which include speed and distance calculations and health monitors such as the Timex Tradition 10 Lap Full watch, and Timex E-Instruments watches which are geared towards measuring the temperature of the surf, and predicting tide times.
Timex has existed for a number of decades and has continued to excel over many other brands. By providing a great range of fun, stylish, versatile and affordable watches with superb function ability, people sincerely trust the brand, knowing that they are investing in a high quality and reliable watch that won’t break the bank.
