The Timex Archive project combines historical know-how with a refined design aesthetic, a true expression of the values that Timex has passed on since 1854 to this day. As part of the Pioneers collection, the Navi Land model is inspired by the rugged style and the great outdoors. The stainless steel case is complimented with a ballistic nylon strap, a high strength material also used for military spec equipment including parachute cords.
Some of us have always known Timex to be, in cultural terms, the best watch money can buy. Historically, the brand has stood for no-nonsense, all-American classicism, offering an escape from the status-watch game. Bill Clinton wore one as president to shore up his common-man bona fides—notwithstanding that a Timex is also a totem called out in The Official Preppy Handbook.
