If you were a kid in the seventies, eighties, and early 90s, you probably loved Macgyver. The guy was known for being able to build anything he needed out of whatever was available to aid him in whatever situation he got trapped in.
This ability of his has spawned all manner of ridiculous memes across the internet and even its own popular phrase: To “Macgyver” something together. Angus Macgyver was a secret government agent and scientist who solved problems with his swiss army knife, scientific resourcefulness, and a limitless supply of moxie.
The watch that was featured on his wrist most frequently was then called the Timex Military Field watch. Timex has since produced various military styled watches and we think the closest watch available today is the Timex Expedition Scout.
The Timex Expedition Scout is a simple, 40mm plastic case watch with a green nylon strap. The watch features quartz movement and an analog display powered by a single battery.
The face features an easy to read black dial with white numbers and markers, complete with 24 hour Arabic numerals.
Night viewing is assisted by the luminous hands and indiglo backlight that allows the full face to light up.
Water resistant to 50m, this Timex will hold up well under rain and the elements, but I wouldn't be taking it diving.
This is an affordable watch for those looking to dress up as Macgyver, want a no-frills watch to take hiking or even wear around the office.
