In an industry cluttered with both inspired and gratuitous collaborations, the one between Todd Snyder and Timex continues to be one of our favorites. From reimaginings of the latter’s iconic Q diver to vintage-influenced dress watches like the Gold Welton Bi-Metal, the occasional team-up between the two labels is one that we’ll never get tired of.
For their latest endeavor, the pairing has been inspired by the ‘60s-era utility timepieces worn by the United States military. However, the new MK-1 Sky King takes that field watch approach and blends it with a sporty chronograph — the first ever from Todd Snyder — for a striking aesthetic in either orange or black dials with lumed hands.
Featuring a date window at the 3 o’clock spot, the dial sports three totalizers circling the left side, visible through the domed acrylic crystal covering. Adorned with an olive-colored canvas slip-through strap made from recycled clothing and leather tan lining, the 42mm stainless steel case houses a quartz movement and boasts 50m of water resistance.
Available now in both colorways, the Timex x Todd Snyder MK-1 Sky King is priced at just $178.
