    I'm digging it. I sure don't need another watch, but what does that have to do with anything?

    Re: Another Timex Reissue - The Q - thoughts?

    If they made a movement that would tick 3x per second like the original, that would be flippin' sweet.

    Love that they're keeping the trend of reissuing watches with all of the original quirks like the battery hatch and acrylic crystal, things that a few years ago would have been seen as serious liabilities to a watch's sales.

    My late 70's Q with the M63 movement inside, still meeting its 15 sec/month accuracy rating.

    Love the reissue of the Q, certainly is a memory trigger, remembering my father's watch with the Q. Just wish it was on more styles besides just the diver though would love a 40mm dress watch with the Q.

    or like the dynabeat, that is one of my favorite movements and that ticka ticka ticka sound is just the best.

    I inherited this one (and they're a little small), but the mid to late 80's versions with a standard stepper motor quartz movement are cheap enough on the 'bay.

    Times reissues make me consider what they could do if they'd just spend the time to develop an inhouse movement or at least do something unique with a quartz movement.

    Pulled the trigger. Wish the lug width were 20mm instead of 18mm but oh well. It ticks all the other boxes for me.
