Timex collabs keep getting more intriguing. They've partnered with the likes of Todd Snyder, Mr. Porter, and Amsterdam-based fashion line Patta to great success. They've also created their own line of high-end watches, the elegant American Documents collection, which runs in the decidedly atypical—for Timex—$500 range. 

Now Timex has joined with outdoor e-retailer Huckberry for a sharp new dive watch that combines the sort of utilitarian style found in much more expensive brands with Timex toughness and durability.

This watch was modeled after a 1970s-era Timex skindiver. But it's been remade for modern needs—Huckberry worked together with the Waterbury, Connecticut-based watchmaker to resurrect the piece, a la the mega-popular Q-Timex, but give it 21st century advantages.

Per the watch's Huckberry listing, here are a few more details:

  • Super brushed dial adds a nice touch of modern style
  • Includes both a NATO nylon strap for active adventure and a genuine leather strap for everything else
  • 100 meters of water-resistance
  • Easy to use, quartz movement that requires minimal attention but is always reliable
  • Rotating bezel with minute markers on it
  • Highly scratch- and shatter-resistant mineral glass
  • Huckberry-branded tree as the 12 marker and on the case back
  • Luminous hour hands and dial for visibility in low light

That's right, the time to grab one of these is now, as they are in limited supply—only 700 made.

Purchase online at Huckberry for a very reasonable $118.
