Early Prime Day Deal: The Classic Timex Weekender Watch Has Gone On Sale

Image used with permission by copyright holder

Timex watches have been worn on the wrists of men for generations under some of the hairiest conditions imaginable. You know that phrase, “It takes a licking and keeps on ticking”? Yeah, that was written about Timex watches, thanks in part to servicemen over multiple wars trusting them to the second. So when we saw that Amazon is throwing an early Prime Day sale on some of the company’s most popular timepieces, including the Classic Weekender , we jumped at it. If you’ve long admired the watch’s generation-spanning good looks and legendary durability, now is your chance to jump on this Prime Day watch deal. You can now save 25% off its regular price.

Start with the 40-millimeter case, which is crafted from clean stainless steel and polished to a mirror finish. It’s appropriate for all sizes of wrists without being ostentatious. Next, add a cream dial, which complements the case and emphasizes its clean, put-together aesthetic. Arabic numerals, with sub-numerals for the 24-hour clock if you prefer, are finished with the company’s classic indiglo coating on its face for clear and long-lasting visibility day or night. And then there’s its woven synthetic NATO strap, which dries quickly and adds just the right amount of nubby texture to contrast the watch body’s smoothness. It’s a classic pairing and a classic look, minimalist and refined.

Of course, living up to its marketing slogans, this watch is surprisingly durable for such a sleek package. It’s water-resistant to 100 feet, and while we wouldn’t suggest taking it on your next scuba adventure, it’s more than appropriate as a daily diver that won’t develop hydrophobia. It also features a scratch-resistant mineral crystal for added ruggedness, and with a 10-year battery life, you won’t be paying a visit to the mall kiosk any time soon.

The brilliance of this watch, however, is the sheer volume of options you have to customize it over time (and thanks to its can’t-bust-’em durability, you’ll have plenty of time). It takes a common 20-millimeter band, and the sky’s the limit when it comes to customizing it. Know a local leatherworker? He can craft you something one-of-a-kind. There are entire companies that just make watch bands, so with a few top Google hits you can quickly purchase a backup band and give your timepiece a whole new look.

Leaveit  to a company that’s been around for more than 150 years to create something that’s timeless. Plenty of watches have bling, but few have that kind of staying power year after year, generation after generation. But beyond good looks, the reason Timex has remained a menswear staple is because of its legendary durability. With this Weekender deal through Amazon Prime, you can pick up this classic piece of Americana for cheaper than ever before and trust that it will last for years to come.

Cop These Super Cheap Ray-Ban Aviators Before They’re Gone
ray ban rb3543 sunglasses amazon prime day 2022 aviator

Ray-Bans do not go on sale, period. And they don't have to, since every celebrity ever has been photographed wearing them. So when we saw the Rb3543 Chromance Mirrored Aviator Sunglasses for $40 cheaper than they should be, we did a full-on spit take. Just in time for summer, one of the company's iconic styles is now cheaper than ever, and you should mash your keyboard's buttons until you receive the confirmation email saying they've shipped to your front door. Don't wait.

You know the Aviator silhouette. Born in the 1930s for U.S. Air Force pilots and their need for sun-protection while exposed to the rarified air of high altitude, the company was literally founded on the style. They've been a mainstay ever since. True, Ray-Ban's other frames have become icons in their own right, from the Wayfarer in Don Henley's "Boys of Summer" to the Clubmaster and many others. But nothing beats the original, which is why everyone from Tom Cruise circa "Top Gun" to Joe Biden circa Euro Trip 2021 can be seen sporting them. You'd be a fool to not add your name alongside that storied list.
