The Timex Archive project represents over 165 years of watchmaking innovation and expertise. This signature collection celebrates and honors the pioneering craftsmen who established Timex as a global leader in watchmaking. Inspired by our heritage, the Timex Archive capsule collection presents a new generation of timeless watches for a new generation of pioneers.
One of the more popular sets in the Timex Archive is the Pioneers collection. Influenced by military-inspired design and the great outdoors, this collection offers rugged and durable watches that combine quality craftsmanship and modern style for fashion-forward consumers who appreciate the attention to details. Great for camping and hiking, or simply a casual timepiece for everyday wear, the Pioneers collection is where you’ll find your new favorite watch.
Several of the watches in the Pioneers collection are based on the MK1 model, the Mil-Spec W-4637B that was manufactured for a brief period in 1982 and issued to U.S. Marines. One of the most popular is the MK1 40mm watch. A re-issue of the original MK1 36mm, this watch is lightweight and durable and presents a civilian version of the military issued timepiece. Featuring a 40mm aluminum case, fabric strap, quartz movement, date feature and INDIGLO® night-light, the MK1 40mm is a great companion for any adventurer.
For a more refined look, the Allied Chronograph 42mm watch is a fine choice. Featuring a 42mm brass case, this timepiece makes a clean statement with its silver-tone stainless-steel bracelet that offers a stylish contrast to its black dial. The Allied Chronograph also has quartz movement, date feature and is water-resistant to 100 meters. This watch is also available with a fabric strap.
For the pioneer who fancies maritime adventures, the Navi Ocean 38mm watch offers classic style and a reversible strap. Featuring a polished 38mm stainless steel case, the Navi Ocean is slightly smaller than other Pioneer styles but more in-line with fashion trends. The Navi Ocean has a quartz movement and is water resistant to 100 meters. The real appeal comes with the fabric reversible strap that offers either an indigo blue or blue and brown color compliments the blue watch dial.
