Look, we’re pretty much obsessed with the ongoing Timex x Todd Snyder collaboration. We featured the line prominently in The 2020 Man, our end-of-year style and grooming awards. We try not to write about every new watch in the collection, but we just can’t help ourselves this time.
If you need a new watch to go with your Spring/Summer Style 2021, then check out the new Timex x Todd Snyder Marlin Date Watch. As you prepare to re-enter the world post-Covid, you’ll need a casual timepiece to go with your new summer style. For this collaboration, Todd Snyder is taking classic designs from the Timex archive and updating them for the modern era. The new Timex Marlin has sleek Art Deco stylings, and the official product description calls this timepiece a Mad Men-era classic.
So far as we’re concerned, this is the men’s watch of the summer, at least until we see something better (my inbox is open).
What we love about this watch:
- Its Minimalist Appeal — 12 and 6 are the only hour markings that appear on the watch, and the only complication is the date window
- Light Colors Perfect for Summer — the stainless steel case is complemented by a brown leather strap with white stitching
- Summer Friendly — this watch is water-resistant to 50 meters, perfect for summer adventures
- The Price Tag — in our experience, the best watches for casual wear cost about $250, and this timepiece is right on the money
