Todd Snyder’s ongoing partnership with Timex connotes the old adage “if it ain’t broke, then don’t fix it,” as the two American-bred brands have rarely failed to deliver on a surplus of exclusive timepieces. With many collaborative efforts standing out over the years, these East Coast-based designers are looking to steal the show even when the lights are off. Introducing their latest joint effort, a blacked-out take on the classic Q Timex.
While Todd Snyder has taken a whirl at reimagining the Q model prior to this, the latest collaboration sheds any glitz and glamour for a remarkably minimal finish. Akin to the New York brand’s previous takes on the retro quartz watch, they leave the majority of the Q Timex’s makeup intact, with its rotating bezel and lumed hands, the latter of which really manage to stand out thanks to this particular piece’s color. Boasting a black dial encased in black stainless steel with a matching integrated-style bracelet, there is essentially no room for vibrant hues to be found here, and it looks as sleek as can be. Running on a reliable quartz movement, the latest timepiece from Todd Snyder and Timex is waterproof up to 50m and surely looks to serve as one of the more subtle offerings you can find out of the two collaborators’ vast variety.
Available now exclusively through Todd Snyder’s online retailer, the Timex + Todd Snyder Q Blackout Watch is on sale for $189.
