We've compiled some our favourite Timex designs, including watches from the classic Indiglo, sturdy Expedition, and elegant Weekender collections. Explore some of the brand's most iconic pieces for men and women and learn how you can introduce Timex to your lifestyle.

Choosing something for the everyday

Since entering the watchmaking world in 1854, Timex has adhered to a rich history of producing practical watches for everyday wear. From Weekender to Waterbury, Timex watches combine functionality with style, with most offering the Indiglo function (which produces the iconic electric blue backlight on the watch face).

Black on black

The famous Timex Waterbury collection is created with ageless style in mind, designed to be worn with both smart and casual attire. The Waterbury classic gives a nod to the 90s, with a traditional black leather strap and stunning black watch face. The rose gold case adds a contemporary twist, bringing modern flair to an otherwise classic model.


Pretty in pink

The Weekender collection from Timex has been designed to offer something attractive and casual for everyday use, and this bold, pink ladies' watch is no exception. The timepiece is water resistant up to 30m and is fitted with the vintage Timex Indiglo function to allow for late night timekeeping.

The pink fabric strap and rose gold casing give it a distinctly feminine finish - elegant simplicity is the flavour of this watch, perfectly styled for both casual and formal wear.


A watch that does more for you

When choosing your next favourite Timex watch, consider a model that offers something more than just the time. The Ironman and Expedition collections from Timex are ideal for those with regular adventure on their minds, whether you need to use your watch underwater, spend your weekends outdoors, or require a precise sports watch.

Pick out something formal

Timex has produced some memorable styles since its watchmaking journey began in 1854, but something all its watches have in common is the ability to be worn as both a stylish accessory and functional timepiece.

Famed for producing on-trend watches, the US brand builds on its classic designs to deliver watches that perfectly combine vintage and contemporary style, suitable not only for casual but formal wear also.

Reimagine vintage

Timex has developed a new generation of Marlin watches suitable for both men and women, drawing inspiration from the popular mid-century range of the same name. The clean design of the Marlin automatic offers a vintage look with all the benefits of modern performance.
