The 40th Anniversary Timex Easy Reader Will Be Your New Favorite Watch this Season

Timex Easy Reader
Timex is here with the next addition to your watch collection: the Timex Easy Reader in a special edition offering. The brand is celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Easy Reader, a crisp, clean, and casual style made for the guy with a discerning eye. It’s a tried-and-true classic that’ll work with any number of men’s fashion staples in your fall and winter rotation.

Launched in the same year as cultural touchstones likes Star Wars — yes, that came out four decades ago — the Easy Reader is perhaps the most recognizable design in the Timex arsenal. It’s subtle, simple and very affordable — what’s not to love?

If you’re not a watch aficionado, you best listen up, because Timex just keeps getting better. The brand has popped up on fashion runways and on the wrists of trendy guys in New York City and beyond, tespecially the Timex x Todd Snyder Military Watch and the rugged Waterbury Collection. However, the Easy Reader remains an icon in the Timex line, and it should be a part of your wardrobe this season.

Timex Easy Reader 40th Anniversary Edition Watch

Featuring an easy-to-wear, 38 mm case size, the Timex Easy Reader 40th Anniversary Edition Watch comes in four crisp, cool leather and dial combos, from a black-dial, brown-leather strap offering to the striking tan leather strap with a green dial. Did we mention each strap is crafted from Horween leather? This watch has it all.

The 40th anniversary is highlighted on the dial, case back, and strap lining (plus via a hidden message when you use the brand’s signature Indiglo light). The best part? Each edition clocks in (pun intended) under $70.

With a watch this clean and sharp, you could wear it seven days a week. From a navy herringbone blazer, a classic Oxford, and dark denim combo to your favorite henley, tan chinos, and a denim trucker jacket outfit, it’ll fit right in, no matter how you style it. That’s exactly the kind of versatility you can count on from the Timex Easy Reader — and that’s even more true four decades after the brand first launched the style.

Perhaps you’ve got an image fixed in your mind when you think of Birdwell Beach Britches, that of classic boardshorts in a vibrant red and white, worn by a lifeguard in a retro-tinged photo. But there’s more than meets the eye. The legendary California surf brand is back in a big way, and they’re going beyond boardshorts with the launch of the new Birdwell Beach Britches fall and winter collection. The California brand is expanding into new categories, taking great care to bring the same eye for detail to new offerings, like flannel work shirts and sweaters. It’s that attention to detail that has made the brand’s meticulously crafted swimwear a fan favorite since 1961. With the recent release of so many soon-to-be classics, we rounded up our top winter style essentials from Birdwell below.

Design Your Own Custom PolarFleece Right Down to the Buttons
Custom Polar Fleece Steven John Close-up

Some garments are always hip. A good pair of blue jeans, lace-up leather boots, and a button-down shirt, for example, have looked good on a man for decades, and there's little chance they'll ever lose their cool. The pullover fleece might not have had such total staying power, but the once-popular fleece is back in a big way now, and just maybe it will stick around this time.

Style writ large is also cyclical, as you know, and right now the '90s happen to be back in vogue. So whereas a few short years ago neon yellow accents on an electric blue top would have been not so cool -- now? That's cool. But hey, maybe you weren't into that level of color back when things were smelling like Teen Spirit and you're sure not into it now. No problem, maybe you want something more demure in your garments, something like a blend of subtle grays and slate blues. Or maybe you want to go full-on America with your color palate.
