This no-nonsense piece of kit was developed in the Eighties for triathletes and anyone else who needed to operate a stopwatch with chilly fingers. The Indiglo feature was added in the early Nineties.
As well as tough outdoor types, a famous early adopter was US president Bill Clinton. Some people thought he should be wearing something more presidential, like a Rolex, but his favourite Timex got the last laugh – it is now displayed in the Smithsonian Institution alongside Abraham Lincoln’s pocket watch.
This version is a collaboration with adventure wear brand Huckberry and features a 99-lap timer, a 44mm resin case and a sturdy resin strap. Water resistant to 100m. The Indiglo light has a handsfree feature if you feel like holding your light up in the air.

TAG HEUER AQUARACER
In Die Hard, Bruce Willis pairs his mucky white vest with a TAG Heuer chronograph. The closest thing to his watch in the modern range is this tough Aquaracer Professional, with quartz chronograph movement in a 40mm stainless steel case, water resistant to 200m.

Automatic movement, water resistant to a hefty 300m.
