The Q Timex series expands with the new Q Timex GMT.
Timex’s first Q Timex models dropped in the 1970s, featuring a quartz movement (hence the “Q”). In addition to the 1972 Q Timex 50th Anniversary reissue, Timex added a GMT model to the Q Timex series. Featuring a red and blue 24 rotating bezel and a 38mm case, you can’t ignore the classic style of a piece like this – which, in addition to the obvious dual time zone functionality (it is a GMT, after all) – features a date window and a reliable Timex Quartz movement that’s accessible (even on the go) via a rear battery hatch.
Oakley goes back to the archives with the reissue of the Sub Zero frame.
Originally released in 1992, Oakley’s Sub Zero frames were another chapter in the brand’s radical and forward-looking (pun intended) design. While the design was out of the box during its original run, today’s fascination with techwear and gorpcore (and Oakley’s interest in delving into its archives) means that the style feels like home 30 years later. The reissued model has been updated with Oakley technology, including Prizm lenses and Unobtainium nose pads and temples for stability on the face.
JJJJound adds Asics to its rugged sneaker resume.

The release – for two silver monochromatic takes on the GEL-Kayano 14 – is set to land in July (but not confirmed). Like other JJJJound releases, if this is something you’re interested in, stay tuned.
