After several successful collaborations, Todd Snyder and Timex are at it again. Only this time, instead of a retro-military inspired piece, they’ve gone with a more contemporary diver look.
Now, I say “diver look” because with only 30 meters of water resistance, this is certainly not a true diver. Nonetheless, it looks great, and it’s priced at well under two hundred bucks. Offered in either a white dial with stainless case or black dial with black PVD case, the M1 certainly plays its part well. According to Snyder, it’s a “…contemporary original fusing signature elements from several classic watches with a forward-facing attitude.”
The white dial features a stainless, rotating bezel while the black dial version gets a black bezel. The handset is clean and simple and the day and date sit at 3 o’clock. At 41mm the case size is just about right, and the 20mm nylon strap evokes memories of everyone’s favorite British spy, James Bond. And of course, a Timex just wouldn’t be a Timex without the signature Indiglo light show.
The M1 Maritime Sport Watch will set you back $158 and is available direct from toddsnyder.com.

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.
