Timex x Todd Snyder Mid-Century Watch Stands Out By Throwing It Back

For those acquainted with the works of Timex and Todd Snyder, you’ll know that the two brands have collaborated multiple times in the past few years, with each successive product looking better than the last. The collaborations have typically highlighted a contemporary remake of one of Timex’s vintage designs. For example, the collaboration on the racing-inspired Beekman watch was a big hit with fans who appreciate a modern, yet classic design; and the Marlin Blackout timepiece was a beauty when it came to both looks and utility. To no surprise, the design super-team have done it again and evoked the style of a 1970s original (which was, itself, a throwback piece) with its new release, the Timex x Todd Snyder Mid-Century Watch.

Of the latest from the duo, Snyder said, “This watch is definitely one of my personal favorites as it reminds me of the mid-century style from the 50s.”

The watch made its debut at the Todd Snyder New York Fashion Week Men’s show on February 4, 2019, sporting the sleek, stylish, and standard essence both Todd Snyder and Timex bring to the table. It’s full of the Timex’s mid-century, vintage character with a few tweaks to give it modern performance.

Instead of an automatic system with chrome plated bezel, the Timex x Todd Snyder Mid-Century features a functional upgrade to a 37mm stainless-steel case for added protection and a day-date window and quartz movement for improved accuracy. What’s better,  all of this is offered a wallet-friendly price.

Timex x Todd Snyder Mid-Century – $158

The duo also brought in a third American company to help execute this collaboration. Each watch in the collection sports a handsome, premium leather strap detailed with contrast stitching from Red Wing, Minnesota-based S.B. Foot Tanning Company – the same high-quality leather and stitching used in Snyder’s preferred Red Wing boots and shoes.

The mid-century wristwatch also boasts a dome acrylic crystal, 30-meter water resistance, and is offered in two classic, elegant colorways. The black dial silhouette comes with a stunning black leather strap and silver stitching, and the silver dial a rich brown leather strap and silver stitching.

The Timex x Todd Snyder Mid Century watch retails for $158 and is available now.

The best men's clothing will always be full of divisive ideas. As we push the boundaries of what is acceptable, stylish, or masculine, certain items in your closet or drawer will cause backlash for some and praise from others. However, one item will transcend this argument (while simultaneously being the most hotly debated part of it) mostly because it sparks something nothing else in men's fashion does: nostalgic conversation. T-shirts may always walk the line between beloved casual and home wear, but vintage t-shirts find a way to transport us back to a time when the world felt simpler.

NFL’s Kirk Cousins reveals his secrets for the ideal boating day on the lake
The perfect boat and the perfect hat for the NFL QB
Kirk Cousins driving a boat

Nothing beats a day on the lake. Or the ocean. Or even the pool. But not every day on the lake is the same, and some of those moments on the water call for more than just a summer set or a great summer look. Being by the water is nothing compared to being on the water, feeling the waves and basking in the sun where the closest person is sitting on dry land.
That's where Manitou comes in, with its mission to get people off the sand and spend their time getting wet. And no one is better to help Manitou get people out on Lake Michigan better than hometown hero Kirk Cousins, who teamed up with the brand to bring a new twist on the pontoon boat.
We had the opportunity to sit down with the NFL quarterback to ask him questions about the boats, his day on the lake, and even a little football. When he's not leading a team with his arm, he's spending time with his family on the water, and he gave us a peek into his ideal day on the lake, and one of the items he always wears.

Why Manitou?
