Deal: If You Buy Any Watch During Timex’s Sale, Make It the Falcon Eye

Yes, quartz watches can be cool

Q Timex Falcon Eye watch
The Q Timex Falcon Eye deserves a spot in your collection (especially now that it's on sale).

There are literally hundreds of men’s watches on sale at Timex during their “Prime Sale” (is that trademarked?), where you can get a discount of 25% off when you use code SAVEBIG at checkout. There are even plenty of watches with automatic movements on sale, if you’re a mechanical-only type of guy.

That said, the best watch of the entire sale features a humble quartz movement. The timepiece itself, however, is far from humble. We’re talking about the Q Timex Falcon Eye, one of the most striking releases from the brand’s line of ‘70s reissues — and the only one of the coveted Q Timex models that is included in the sale.

What’s so great about the Falcon Eye? Having personally worn it (and regrettably gifted it to someone else), I can say from experience that it hits a sweet spot on the wrist by pairing a smaller 38mm case size (well, smaller by today’s standards) with integrated lugs and a squared-off shape. But the color scheme is what really stands out here — the combo of blue and gold make this a fun but not goofy, and vibrant but not flashy option. In fact, I may just have to get another one for myself.
