In celebration of Father’s Day Weekend, the company with the best reputation for keeping you punctual, Timex is dropping some coin and erecting a vintage pop-up barbershop at The Shops at North Bridge just outside of Nordstrom. It happens the 16th between Noon and 3PM. At the pop-up, dudes can treat themselves to fresh summer ‘dos and browse the latest Timex Intelligent Quartz watches. Shoppers will also have the opportunity to meet hunk-a-hunk-a burnin' love, Maksim Chmerkovskiy of Dancing with the Stars when he stops by to shop for a digital censored, micro-processed Intelligent Quartz timepiece for his own dad. We're thinking his dad will want one with functions like Tide Tracker for when he's fishing in Maryland, a Thermometer and a Compass for the chilly nights camping in the Alaskan tundra, and the Fly-Back Chronograph, Perpetual Calendar, World Time, 2nd Time Zone, Altimeter for flying east, traveling into the future.
