timex x adsum 36mm mk1

Timex and Adsum's billboard ad made a splash this week by taking a swipe at the Apple Watch's, well, technological capabilities (a.k.a its ability to deliver you every notification your phone does). But the campaign was more than just fighting words. The simple watch, the 36mm stainless steel MK1 in black and minty green, is easy to read and has "I AM PRESENT" etched into the back of its case.

kurono calendrier type i watch

Two subdials kind of make you think of a chronograph, but if you know Miyota automatic movements you'll recognize the 9122's analog way of displaying the day of the week and month. And if you know Kurono, you won't be surprised that the watch it powers is executed to a high level.
