Timex For Mr. Porter Waterbury 792915 Watch Hands-On

Timex is one of a few brands ready to move straightforwardly from the online men’s retailer, Mr. Porter. I’ve composed a couple of times about Mr. Porter trying to feature an illustration of a “well done” multi-brand online retailer for watches (in addition to other things). A portion of the things Mr. Porter does right is exhibit their watches in an exquisite and unique way, help add a style component so clients have a few thoughts of what to wear the watches with, and offer unique items planned in a joint effort with the watch brand itself. Mr. Porter has been very productive with its unique plans with regards to watches going from the top of the line right to the entirely consumable Timex . What I mean by that is masterminding those watch brands to deliver unique plans just ready to move through Mr. Porter. With the web being one major value war with regards to retailers who compete by selling similar items, having something unique and selective is generally the best way to go.

This specific Timex Waterbury model is one of three which dispatched in late 2016/mid 2017 when I trust Timex initially dispatched on the Mr. Porter platform . Every one of the three Timex Mr. Porter Waterbury watches is presently sold out –yet I needed to offer a glance at this decent and obviously affordable wristwatch since I am certain one of them could come up now and again as a feature of any watch lover’s routine quest for something new. Mr. Porter at present has a progression of Timex watches accessible and they address what I accept is the most affordable watch item on their site. I truly appreciate how Mr. Porter can effectively introduce both standard and select very good quality watches in a similar climate – demonstrating that a large part of the watch business isn’t right in their dread of blending top of the line things in with “low-end” things out of dread that buyers won’t pay the costly items enough respect. Nonsense. I think buyers are significantly more brilliant than that and if a brand is worried about their item not being viewed as important enough to justify the value, that is likely on the grounds that it isn’t really significant enough to justify the price.


Mr. Porter was sufficiently fortunate to have Timex architect Giorgio Galli from the brand’s group in Milan, Italy work on this Waterbury plan for them. Note that the “Waterbury” name is given to a large group of Timex watches, so these three that came out address the references 792915 (as imagined), the 792916 (dark dial with dark case), and the 792917 (dark dial with cleaned steel case). The watch is straightforward however from various perspectives very fulfilling. I would say that the greatest disadvantage for me is the perceptible ticking of the generally solid and dependable Timex quartz development within. All things considered, many watch sweethearts appreciate the ordinary tick, tick, ticking sound of a look as can be heard in a tranquil room since they discover it relaxing.

At 38mm wide these Timex Mr. Porter Waterbury watches aren’t huge however the thickness keeps them from feeling excessively modest. The cleaned steel case is appealing and adjusted which encourages add some character to the look. The case is a smidgen more vintage-looking than the dial, which is likewise done in vintage style however from a marginally later period given its unmistakable Bauhaus-propelled stylish. Waterbury is the name of the city in Connecticut where Timex is based and was likewise initially founded.

Like numerous Timex watches, this adaptation of the Waterbury has an INDIGLO backdrop illumination framework, which is worked when you press in the crown like a pusher. The whole dial enlightens in a somewhat blue green sparkle that offers great readability even in all out murkiness. The dials are further even and clean, offering a decent access to having a cutting edge watch that is additionally elegant. Mr. Porter obviously permits clients to keep ascending the value stepping stool from here.


One of the things I was especially dazzled with at this value level is the calfskin lash. It’s nothing uncommon, yet the quality is more pleasant than I’ve been acclimated with finding in watches at this value level. The 792915 has a dim lash which coordinates the highly contrasting dial. I likewise like how when Timex delivered these looks for Mr. Porter, they didn’t address a little change from other existing Timex watches, however felt distinctive enough to be something to consider. At the under-$200 value point Timex offers probably the best qualities for exemplary looking simple dials, be them energetic or dressy with the Mr. Porter Waterbury watches being an incredible model at their unique retail cost of $150 each. timex.com  | Timex watches on Mr. Porter.com
