Ooh neat Gary !!! Surprised bounce What a fantastic find, and pick-up sir !!! cyclops  Never have actually seen this particular model to
tell you the truth. So thanks a lot ! You really have to hand it to Timex in how they are always able to stand out from
the crowd. I mean it can be in timeless designs, or uniquely cool ones. ..You know Timex will do something special !
This beauty feels vintage honestly, but then you notice the bold hands, and numbering, and unbelievably nice bezel !

Yowza, and how about the NATO Gary?!! ..Even box?!! A giant congratulations there to you !!! Enjoy this G !!! Very Happy

Hey Thanks Tom! I saw one on WUS the other day and had to check out the collection. The Archive series seems to be hidden on the Timex website, and there are no discounts you can use right now.

http://www.timex.com/archive/watches/collections/pioneers/

Also the straps are very special...The Timex Archive straps are created in Italy on mechanical looms. Woven with unique structures for extra durability and refined style. With research and manufacturing know-how we have been able to develop innovative yarn dying treatments and stone-washed processes. Delivering you original finishes with the quality expected from an artisan see video:

Don't mention it Gary !  Very Happy Yowza, and thank you too for the terrific insight into these ultra nice Timex's here sir.  
Thought they were special, and then after seeing, and reading more. Think they are even cooler !!!   Can't get
enough of the video you posted either with the strap making, and everything. ..You know I am not sure I ever even
saw how Nato straps were actually made before. It makes me even like Natos more, and Timex more to be honest !!!

Thanks so much for all of the great information G !!!


Darius, looks like you are starting the week off there in style too !!! Idea Cool Yet another outstanding Stuhrling D !!! cheers
Loved seeing the gold finish model the other day, and now seeing the stainless version is off the charts cool today !
I remember when you picked these two up last year, and how it was tough picking a favorite. ..The way Stuhrling
was able to capture both a traditional, yet somehow futuristic vibe with these was just the best I think. Beautiful sir !!!

Just the open heart alone here is excellent Darius !!!

Thanks Tom! SO watches generally don't do anything for me, however, when I saw these they were an instant hit with me and had to have them both. A friend of mine bought one on a leather strap at the same time. Unfortunately I need to sell some watches in the near future and one or both of these will probably be hitting the chopping block. SMH These are the only SO that I own, I used to have a Madman but that hit the block quite a while back.

You got it Darius ! Smile ..Yup, these have that wow factor about them imho, and definitely deserved a test drive sir.
It's so cool that you not only got to enjoy them for a while, but now have more excitement of the next arrival for the wrist
on the horizon. ..Then on top of that, you will always have these pictures, and memories of having the watches D !!!
