Timex Expedition watches were derived from the virtually indestructible 1960s infantry watches and adapted to meet the explosive growth in popularity of outdoor activities. In the late 1970s, Timex introduced a popular camper-style watch that featured army green and canvas styling. Taking both styling and material cues from outdoor gear and apparel, the casual but functional collection expertly captured the essence of the outdoor lifestyle. In doing so, it effectively defined and created a new watch category.
