There are a few variations of the Formex Element, but this is the best one: black dial, black ceramic bezel, handmade dark brown croc style strap to add some color against the stainless steel case. This model also has the upgraded folding buckle made from stainless steel and carbon fiber composite. Formex is all about their patents, especially the spring loaded suspension cases they produce, but this folding clasp also has a patented fine adjustment system.

“A watch that withstands the most extreme challenges and nature’s forces: down on the ground, up in the sky, deep underwater or right where you are.” -Formex

In Formex’s Own Words:

The deep black ceramic bezel is made of zirconium oxide, a high-tech ceramic that is approximately seven times harder, but two thirds lighter than steel. The extraordinary hardness makes the Bezel virtually scratch proof. Composed of 38 individual components, the complex case resists water depths of up to 100m. Hand-finished with flawless precision and craftsmanship, the watch comes alive with facets of brushed, mirror-polished and sandblasted surfaces, elevating the powerful shapes and elegant lines of the case.

With its patented case suspension system, protecting the watch’s movement from heavy impacts and adding to the comfort on the wrist by adapting to the wearer’s movements. The anti-reflective sapphire crystal on the laser-engraved case back offers a view of the horological engine, the legendary Valjoux 7750 self-winding chronograph movement with a 42-hour power reserve. On the dial, the chronograph counters with hints of red and the 60 second scale on the flange emphasize Formex’ origins as a motorsport watch manufacturer. The base satin finish matches the bezel’s top and powerful Super-Luminova on the hands and the machined indexes ensure perfect readability, even in the darkest environment. Another distinguishing feature is the ultra-strong and light-weight folding clasp, made of carbon fiber composite and a stainless-steel cover. This durable clasp has an easy to use, patented fine-adjustment, allowing that perfect fit on the wrist in all conditions. (via

Why KTT?

Quality Over Quantity

For over 10 years we have built our business on providing friendly service, a beautiful website, in-depth information and detailed videos. We deal in watches that you usually won't find together in the same place - from Rolex to Invicta and modern microbrands to antique pocket watches. Check back often, you never know what you will find!

Why Ktt Specs

Watch You See Is Watch You Get

Since the beginning, KeepTheTime has refused to use stock photos. After passing through our logging and inspection process, our in-house photographer gets up close and personal with each watch. After the photoshoot, we begin our research, verifying the detailed specs by hand. That's why you will know exactly what you are getting when buy from us.

Why Ktt Photos

Ready to Wear

Some watch dealers don't bother to clean the used watches they sell... you can see the dirt and grime in their pics, gross! At KTT, we're unabashed germophobes. That's why we thoroughly sanitize every watch before we even begin posting it, then once again before shipping. Your watch will arrive clean and ready to wear!

Why Ktt Clean

Second To None Packing + Shipping

One of our favorite customer comments is that KeepTheTime is the Brinks Truck of shipping watches. We take packing very seriously, from the use of biodegradable peanuts (pet friendly!) to absurd amounts of packing tape, you can rest assured that your new-to-you watch will arrive safely. Some of our competitors ship within 1-2 weeks because they take your money first then try to source the watch second. KeepTheTime watches are in stock and ready to ship. That means we can get your order on its way within hours not days.
