Sharing the same Miyota movement found in the also-recently released Waterbury, the Navi XL Automatic is the product of a brand that’s been paying attention to the “non-negotiables” of buyers in this price range. This price range is packed with homage watches, but not much in the way of design with at least a semblance of originality and a personality that has roots/history that are the brand’s own and not appropriated or simply made up. Definitely nothing that’s American. This is where Timex excels with the Navi XL Automatic… More here.
I am in two minds about this release. On the positive side Timex really seems to be upping its game and giving people what they want, and at times something that looks really special.
On the sceptical side, this is an incredibly generic and obvious design in so many ways, but the price is compelling.
