The Todd Snyder collection from Timex has been excellent. Separately, Timex Q has been a great revival of a classic case and bracelet. What happens when the two cross streams? ONLY GOOD THINGS.
From the top view, the Timex Q is a very 1970s shape, with hidden lugs that shroud the top of the bracelet end link. The usual Timex Q has a very 1970s bracelet, with short links, 7 links across.
And it’s a very comfortable 1970s size, in 38mm, 11.5mm thin. What’s really nice is that the Q has such a vintage profile, with a mid-case side that recalls really cool vintage divers.
And it doesn’t stop at the side – the bezel is grippy only at the top, just below the domed crystal. This is vintage, cool, and functional.
What makes a Todd Snyder X Timex Q different from the usual Timex Q line?
For one thing, the bracelet. The Todd Snyder gets a beautiful mono link style bracelet – each link is articulated on the back side, for a clean, almost Giugiaro-look on the front.
The usual Timex Q has a bi-color bezel. Here, Snyder has given it an all steel appearance.
The Timex Q dial is a flat one with lumed dive markings for the hours. The Todd Snyder X Timex Q gets applied metal indices, stick hands instead of dive hands, and is generally dressier in every way than the dive oriented Timex Q.
If you want a Todd Snyder X Timex Q, they’re limited edition. Good news! It won’t cost you anymore than the regular Timex Q, at $179 USD. The Todd Snyder X Timex Q is available from Timex.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.
