Editor’s Note: Watches & Wonders (formerly SIHH) has moved online and Baselworld 2020 is canceled, but that hasn’t stopped watch brands large and small from debuting their new wares. Stay on top of this year’s best new watch releases here.
The Q Timex, Timex’s 1970s-inspired quartz diver, is now available in several different colors and styles. But if you were searching for something a bit more monochromatic — or something with more of a definitive (non-Rolex inspired) vintage inspiration — you should check out the new Todd Snyder X Timex Q Bracelet Watch.
If you’ve ever done a deep dive into the depths of eBay late one night, looking at vintage watches, you’ve no doubt come across similar-looking Timex models: baton hands, red-tipped seconds hand, stick markers, folded-link steel bracelet, etc. All of those features are present here and more: you get a domed acrylic crystal, a rotating, dive-style bezel, a reliable quartz movement with day-date display, a handsome black dial, lumed hands and a battery hatch for easy swapping. The watch is also sized perfectly at 38mm and is water-resistant to 50m.
It’s strange to see the old folded-link style employed on a modern bracelet (in place of solid links), and we have to say, we love it — there’s something immensely satisfying about the jangle and feeling of one of these bracelets once they’ve been truly worn in. For $179, there’s little to argue with here. Vintage aesthetics, modern tech, a great look — it’s all present in this new version of the Q.
