Designer Todd Snyder is continuing his partnership with watch brand Timex, and will release the Todd Snyder x Timex Blackjack Watch this fall. The timepiece is priced at $138 and is available exclusively online at ToddSnyder.com and at Snyder’s flagship store on Madison Square North in New York City.
Stealthy and sophisticated, the watch is inspired by a sporty 1970s style from the Timex archives, updated in a modern blackout palette. This edgy timepiece is an homage to the stylish drivers of Formula One in the 1960s and 1970s. It also borrows distinctive details from that archival original, with urbane updates in the form of a black finished case and military-inspired nylon strap. Additional features include 50 Meter Water Resistance and a quartz movement.
“I’ve always been fascinated by Formula One and the history of the Grand Prix, especially the gritty elegance of retro race days and the swagger of the great drivers,” says Snyder. “When I found the vintage style that inspired this watch, with its bold, graphic design, I began thinking about motors and engines and dials – and the similarities between finely engineered timepieces and high performance racing machines. The Blackjack embodies all that in a modern blackout palette that speaks to our New York roots.”
Snyder will show is spring/summer ’18 collection tonight at Cadillac House as part of NYFW: Men’s.
