Alpha Industries started as a small clothing manufacturer based in Knoxville, Tennessee; the company won its first contract with the United States Department of Defense in 1959 for production of a super-warm Air Force parka, and continued to supply the US military with outerwear in the decades that followed. That impressive heritage made Alpha a perfect match for the legacy that Timex carry. The resulting design leans heavily into military-inspired styling to produce a watch with a wealth of purpose-tested details and a wearing experience that’s mindful of modern needs. The watch case is done in matte-black anodized aluminum, featuring a sturdy woven strap in olive green drab with orange contrast stitching, plus black anodized aluminum fasteners. As for the dial, a flight-inspired riff on the classic MK1, luminous hands and hour markers and a high-contrast seconds hand gesture back to Timex’s own heritage in function-forward watch design.
