Timex x Raised by Wolves

Timex is all about those collaborations lately, it would seem. Sure, they’re making plenty of solid “solo” designs (say, like this one), but the partnerships are something we’re seeing more of. This time around, it’s another Timex x Raised by Wolves collaboration.

What is it?

This Timex x Raised by Wolves started life as a Timex Acadia. They don’t currently offer the 40mm version (other than in this collab), but you can find it out there. For this version, there are a couple of tweaks. First off, the 40mm case is done up in an eco-conscious #tide plastic for the case. The shade is black, of course, which is offset by the white markers and the red, yellow, and blue on the handset.

Where’s the wolf?

With the Timex x Raised by Wolves collaborations, there’s a wolf hidden somewhere, in plain sight. Well, ok, that header image gave the game away. When you hit the indiglo button (which is the crown of the watch), that’s where you see the howling wolf. It’s a clever touch, and makes for a fun reveal.

Wrapping things up

Indiglo tricks aside, the Timex x Raised by Wolves should make for a solid outdoors watch. It’s going to be light and tough, and the quartz movement will stand up to whatever you throw at it. The 30m WR means you’ll want to watch out around water (maybe don’t swim with it), but hey, it’ll be good for knocking around. If you want to pick one up, they’re just $119 directly from timex.com
