Whether it’s a sweatshirt, a linen suit, or the perfect comfortable running shoe, Todd Snyder specializes in clothes that look better with every spin in the washing machine and every bump on the curb. The designer captured exactly that vibe for his latest collaboration with Timexas a rugged field watch designed to look stylish — and feel functional — as a pair climbing leather shoes. “I wanted to create a watch that was reminiscent of vintage dive watches and dive watches,” says Snyder. “A watch that looks like it’s been on expeditions through the woods, down some rapids and into the sea.”
Like every piece in the Todd Snyder x Timex classic, this piece was designed to blend seamlessly with Snyder’s curated collection of Classic American menswear. Opposed to his last piece of Timexpraising her gray flannel clothes and liberal cocktails Crazy Men era, the Timex x Todd Snyder Utility Ranger watch was made for sailing through glassy or rock pools back in front of a campfire in a utility shirt, khakis, and desert boots.
Housed in a black 40mm steel case with a muted orange bezel and vibrant orange seconds hand, the vintage-inspired watch has a look to match. and the specs needed to make it a must-have for jungle excursions and an easy addition to your wardrobe. With 100m of water resistance, a green NATO-style nylon strap, and Timex’s famous Indiglo night light, it’s built to withstand the rigors of the trail. Meanwhile, powering the hero of this campground is a working horse-like automatic movement with 40 hours of power reserve and — in a premium finishing touch — a display back. so you can, ah, clock all those little gears are doing their thing.
And like the best outdoor gear (and so many of Todd Snyder’s biggest hits), the more you beat it, the more seasoned and ready it will look for adventure.
