This is not the first Timex X Todd Snyder collaboration, but this is certainly the most modern. While previous variations of this partnership have relied on pieces from the Timex archives, this new line is more modern, fusing several elements from classic watches, but keeping them contemporary with design and style.
The larger case has a satisfying feel that acts more an accessory, than a detail. The double layer nylon strap securing the face to your wrist is influenced by vintage style worn by British military personnel. What’s more? The rotating bezel is designed to track elapsed time, a smart nod to the essential function of timeless diving watches.
This ongoing partnership has brought us several impressive pieces, but the MS1 Maritime sport is a modern hybrid with nautical elements that subtly hint at their place in history, while still maintaining relevant and appropriate for each wearer.
Developed in Milan, Spain, by Todd Snyder and Design Director Giorgio Galli, the pair did a brilliant job of paying homage to an iconic look while ensuring this watch to look at home no matter where it may go.
