The latest iteration in the ongoing Timex x Todd Snyder partnership– the Timex x Todd Snyder Welton Bi-Metal Watch — could just be your new favorite watch, that’s a fact. Even better? As one might expect, it comes with built-in history, heritage quality and impeccable style, as one can always count on from the partnership between the historic watchmaker and the lauded American designer.
The fruitful Timex x Todd Snyder partnership has leaned both sporty (the racing-inspired Mod Watch) and dressy (the refined, slimmed-down Marlin Watch in both black and brown leather iterations), and the new Timex x Todd Snyder Welton Bi-Metal hits it out of the park on both fronts. It exists in the old world and the new in terms of style — that’s probably due to the fact that Snyder came across an old style in the extensive Timex archives, the Mercury, that reminded him of a watch worn by his father. So, the beginnings of the Welton Bi-Metal Watch were born. It’s a seriously sharp and refined watch, with a dressy 34mm case diameter, a brown genuine croco-leather strap (wear it with leather loafers to a summer wedding), and an understated design.
The stainless steel case provides modern functionality, while the silver-tone dial and handsome gold-tone markings and hands immediately call to mind the iconic watches of yesteryear. The domed acrylic crystal also gives it a more distinct look and feel, so it’ll stand out just as nicely whether you wear it with a garment-dyed tee and light wash jeans (add in suede chukka boots), or pair it with a khaki cotton suit and sharply shined leather dress shoes. When it comes to the latest from Timex and Todd Snyder, there’s no wrong way to wear this latest standout watch — that’s just a fact.
