The latest quartz Timex comes to you via Don Draper’s wrist. This Todd Snyder collaboration is inspired by Art Deco watch designs of yesteryear and features green lumed hands and red pips around a medico-style chapter ring.
The pieces will cost $128 when they launch this winter and they are water-resistant and have sapphire glass crystals.
?I saw the inspiration for this when I was meeting with Timex?s Milan-based design director Giorgio Galli,? says Snyder. ?And we were working on ideas for a watch with retro elements that would resonate with the vintage details in our fall collection including retro sweater polos, bold patterned cardigans, and boucle wool topcoats.??
The real draw for me is the design. These really look like something out of the 1950s and maybe the 1970s and the brown works wonderfully with the grey face. It won’t win any prizes when it comes to complications but it sure is pretty.
Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
