Designed for Anglers and urban outdoor, this collaborative watch with Abu Garcia is based on the world first sport oriented watch called Ironman® launched in 1986.
The original Ironman 8-Lap watch was sold more than 400,000 units in the first year, because of its philosophy and engineering background. Built for Triathlon (Swim, Bike and Run), the Ironman watch became an icon and even the President of the United States of America worn.
John T. Houlihan, a former car designer at General Motors and his team designed the original Ironman watch in cooperation with Alberto Salazar (4 time major marathon champion, ex Nike Oregon Project Coarch), Mary Decker Slaney (U.S. Track & Field Olympian) and various talents.
Distinctive the "lunette" shape or so-called D-shape with two top-mounted buttons right below that circle was about the future back in 1986. The styling was just exactly right, and Ironman became the “brand”, not Timex.
This Abu Garcia x TIMEX Ironman 8-Lap watch has a negative LCD display unlike the original positive display, and it gives a sharp look. The case is made by glow-in-the-dark material and matched with the olive color resin straps.
As a collab, this watch comes with a special multi purpose pouch made by inflammable fabrics and transparent sheet as a package. You can put your smartphone (can use over the inflammable sheet), keys, cards and other stuffs.
