Todd Snyder is one of the hottest young menswear designers in the United States today with a reputation for combining Savile Row craftsmanship with a downtown New York aesthetic.
The brand’s clothes and accessories are department store staples, and have been sold and promoted from a flagship store in New York’s Madison Square Park since 2016.
Timex has been collaborating with the designer since last year when another Todd Snyder reissue of a 1960s watch was a sell out.
This month the partnership has come up with the Timex x Todd Snyder Marlin Blackout, a classic dress watch housing a hand-wound mechanical movement.
The watch has a rich black sunray dial and lizard grain pattern leather strap. “It’s the perfect accent for a sharp suit or a wedding tux, and an ideal gift for the watch enthusiast or history buff,” Todd Snyder says.
“I’ve been wanting to do something more elegant, something you’d style with a suit, and by customizing the Marlin with a blackout palette we’ve given it a sophisticated modern feel,” the designer adds.
The watch is retailing for $199.
