What is Green Monday? Yet another fake retail holiday happening today, but it’s good news for you as Timex has taken the occasion to throw its biggest sale of the year: up to 40% off watches, from its bread-and-butter quartz to newer mechanical movements and including some of its best-selling styles, when you use code ELF40 at checkout.

Below you’ll find our six favorites that we’d be glad to wear any day (and some of them that we do, including the classic Q Timex and the Falcon Eye). Be aware that this sale is short, lasting only until midnight on Monday. Clock’s ticking.

I’ve recommended this watch before and I’ll keep recommending it as long as my own remains in rotation. It’s the original model from Timex’s ever-expanding Q Timex line, and while there are a few styles on sale, we’d recommend the black and green.

If you like the styling of the original Q Timex but can’t get down with a quartz movement, then the beefy (40mm case, 14.5mm thickness) M79 Automatic is for you.

While this appears to be the more muted end of the Q Timex line, the beauty is in the details: an oblique date window, textured silver-tone dial and faceted hour markers.

If you’re sick of oversized dinner plates, try this tactile Marlin, which you’ll need to power via the hand-wound mechanical movement.
