Hands-On Debut: Timex Navi XL Automatic Watch

Hands-On Debut: Timex Navi XL Automatic Watch
Oct 22, 2019 — By Bilal Khan


Just released is the new Timex Navi XL Automatic, which is the first mechanical watch in this collection and the first mechanical “military-style” sport watch from Timex. With a green dial, that distinct hour hand, and overall thoughtful proportions and finishes, this is an impressive offering from Timex. More importantly, it’s a lot of fun, style, and value at $260.

Timex has been executing a two-pronged strategy in the past few years, with the mission of increasing not only its mechanical watch offerings but also to reach two distinct buyer groups. On one end, there is the American Documents collection in the $500 range that was introduced earlier this year. Far more expensive than Timex watches that came before it, the American Documents watches are all about being “small-batch” American-made pieces. These were the first Swiss movements Timex introduced, while the Marlin automatic that came out last year in 2018 with a mechanical automatic movement added to collection’s hand-wound edition. Now, the Navi XL Automatic is the first sport watch that Timex has introduced in its mid-tier $250 range of automatic movements that falls between the basic quartz offerings and the Swiss Ronda-powered American Documents collection.

Good for Timex. They are not letting the grass grow under their feet.

Looks like they have an automatic version of the highly popular Timex Q, the Batman, to be released in the near future.

Ughhh, that hour hand. Fuck, no. The rest of the watch is more or less OK.

If it does as well as the quartz version, I would do well to buy three and sell two at a ridiculous markup on eBay.

It appears as if Timex has caught the hour hand 'circle' issue and will correct it during production...

Still looks silly.
